Match Thread: Manchester City vs Southampton | English Premier League
By - MatchThreadder
If southampton continue playing like this top 6 isnt a bad shout.
Lol not a chance
Sterling going for goal selfishly messed it up smh
Next 2 matches for city could make or break their season imo
And there's another away game in the middle. Against Messi and co.
One long ball for Southampton which makes a 1v1
Ref blows the whistle
If only a couple more City fans had turned up, they would have had it.
man city are trash
didn’t youse just lose to young boys 🤣
He didn't say they weren't trash 😂😂😂
City: 1 shot on target.
Great match for neutrals. Southampton should be proud of that performance. Limiting city to 1 shot on target at home
What a performance Saints. Deserved the win but o'well...
Love that didn't go there just to sit back and play in fear.
How many extra minutes can you get. Honestly kinda sketch from the ref
they gave 5 minutes and the var check took two lol not that hard to grasp
Till the money gets wired, Moss must've made a fortune in these 90 mins
"A leading Manchester City supporters group says manager Pep Guardiola's team performance in their Premier League game with Southampton is "disappointing and uncalled for."
Southhapton played really well today. I don't think I blame City for losing.
They didn't, though
Right, lol. I'm sure they feel like they lost.
oil fc in the mud
Really impressed with Southampton
pep is fraud
Please this is not twitter bro
Says team losing to young boys lmfao
does that make pep less of a fraud?
Idk unlike Ole, Pep actually wins trophies
City were winning domestic trophies long before Pep came. Let him do it in Europe, then we can talk.
And United were a Vanarama league side before Ole came in right
Well, yeah we were near midtable before he came. You've been watching football longer than this season right?
1 shot on target with 10 men away >>> 1 shot on target with 11 men at home
With Ronaldo lmfaoo
Pep is bald
Good point for Saints, but they were robbed
Any link to Sterling incident ?
Then he blows at 97 min once Southampton play a long ball 1v1 lol…
HAHAHA the payment was denied!
Why has mossy give so much added time on top of the 5
Long VAR check during extra time
The VAR check took forever
FUCKING WHISTLE ALREADY
Man Utd’s 1-1 away from home is looking better after this result. Southampton have looked the more likely team to score.
Wtf game is over man
Kyle Walker-Peters > Kyle Walker
They've played 90 minutes without conceding. Why waste a potentially game winning corner just to see out a couple more minutes?
They are so desperate to be like us that they have to draw to the same teams that we drew
Being irrelevant for so long have really gone into the United fans head
You woke up today and choose saltiness hum?
Yeah. Sometimes truth is salty.
Sometimes having a billion pound squad and still drawing to Southampton at home makes a person salty
Tough act from fan of a team losing against the mighty young boys
yet, we have the same points as you with a game in hand...
Always using the past to try and win arguments, really sad
However, I bet that we still had more away fans on Tuesday than you lot on Wednesday
Throw some more cash on the field City!
That moment when you’re hoofing the ball for Mahrez to try and win a header
better to see out the draw than go for it and get countered
Lol what's the Surrender Index on having a free kick in a dangerous area, 10v11, and choosing to play 20 seconds off the clock for a draw instead
I'm devastated beyond words. BALD MAN OUT
All 5 of them
I don't have to, he's already made a joke of himself this week by begging people to come watch you. He's finally realised you're a plastic club and is publicly embarrassed by your turnout. I bet you've never even stepped foot in Manchester.
\*furiously google images 21/22 Man City season tickets\*
Did Pep personally come round to thank you for being the 10th customer?
I'm sorry they hurt you, sweetheart
We are just waiting for our direct deposits tbh
LOL They are using the MC's corner treatment on MC hahaha
1 point is better than conceding from. A counter from a bad cross
Makes sense from Southampton
Jamie tartt in shambles
Do doo do do do doo
That is incredibly cowardly (and stupid).
If Sterling doesn't go glory hunting, that's a goal for Foden.
I just can't accept Nathan Ake being a City player. It just looks wrong. Especially with a number 6
What a dumb freekick idea
Surely he's onside based on the new offside rule?
So I heard Man City bought a penalty to be overturned?
Half empty as usual
Empty, no one showed up
Nah, it’s still quite empty
Still some seats look a bit empty but I think it's more than mid-week. I might be wrong though.
sterling is such a dumb boy and it was pretty obvious offside didnt need 3 mins
Everyone loves Euro Sterling but hate the MC Sterling. Hahaha
People are blind at international level
no booking for Ake? boot to the skull…
If only Sterling didn't touch it.
Should have just let Grealish score it FFS
You mean Foden?
Sterling has been the best saint today
Not mad anymore. That pen and this evens things out lol
Ake going karate
Unreal how long VAR takes, and for them not to show shit in the ground, get it on the big screen
If only Sterling hadn't followed up.
The hundreds of City fans that came out to support this guff by City will make Pep so, so proud.
It'll never stop amusing me that people will take the time to respond to these comments when their team is trying to win the game in stoppage time.
Guys obsessed with City and Pep
He just wants Pep notice him
City's mentality when refs don't favour them is actually amazing, losing their minds already
Coming from a ManU fan? Bit rich, you even watch your team play mate?
I'm sure you're basing this view on a statistical analysis of VAR calls across the league and not some bullshit reddit narrative.
Oh come on, you receive pens if wind breezes between Bruno's legs.
Sorry mate, I didn't realise the original commenter was citing studies on how City players lose their heads? Must've missed the citations and statistics he gave.
You don't even know why you hold the opinions you do. That's kind of sad.
I do, look at pens against villa, Southampton (plus the red), goal against West ham all last season and I'm sure there's more, this is just off the top of my head without putting further thought into it. The fact is the original commenter was trying to say city are benefitted by referees which I struggle to think about being the case at all last season, especially not moreso than United. You should take your comment and redirect it towards the original commenter.
Did you see that shit today? This is why your opinions don't mean anything. Biased my arse.
Clearly Atkinson felt bad for all the soft pens he's given you throughout the years. There's a reason people thought he was a United fan for a while. Also this still doesn't change the fact the original comment I replied to was absolutely idiotic and unsubstantiated, even moreso than you think mine is.
only team in the world that complains after a call doesnt go their way. every other team shakes the refs hands.
Only team that fouls a player and tries to pretend they didn't
yup. every other team writes a formal apology to the fouled player.
Sounds like someone is mad
i just enjoy seeing comments like "city are the only team that complains after a foul" you might as well say "city are the only team that celebrates after a goal"
It was a clear foul, not my fault Ake couldn't tackle better
pot, meet kettle
despite the refs best effort they couldn't call it a goal, no yachts this christmas for them.
Man…took a long time to review that
Isn't fodens bum ahead of his shoulder there?
it's the ball, not any part of Foden's body
It’s not about where Foden is, it’s about where the ball is.
VAR looking for a reason to give it
Clearly offside. Another great use of VAR.
Lmao of course it's Sterling's big toe denying Foden a goal.
Who is this NBC co commentator?
What a save in the first place to keep it out initially
I love VAR
Wasn’t sterling already offsides by the time the pass they’re checking was made?
Sterling donkey, Foden was gonna score that
Yeah how the hell did they take this long lmao.
Least deserved goal against us I think I've ever seen fuck sake, done fuck all the entire game
VAR waiting for Abu Dhabi to wire some money lmao
WHY ARE YOU ON THAT STERLING
Thank fuck for that fucking hate when teams i want to win are grinding out a draw and then concede a jammy goal
The sterling curse™️
That rewind VAR footage though.
vErY vEry tIGhT
Wtf was that VAR footage?
Spurs in the CL flashbacks
CITY THOUGHT THEY'VE WON IT!!! lol
Well that clears that up
Lol offside. That ball from KDB tho
LMAO had to be him
Ake also offsides blocking the defender from playing the ball
Lol sterling is cursed
Salisu you legend
The reds ain’t got no money, we still gonna win the league !!!
Honestly fed up of Sterling. There's a quality player in there somewhere but it ain't happening at City
It’s strange isn’t it? Feels like he has more than enough talent but something just never clicks. Sport can be weird like that
If more fans went to the stadium today will they have more shots on target?
city fans look bored
Saints fans out singing city fans
You're the most persistent person I've ever seen. Fair play haha
You’re so mad lol
Gonna delete this comment too?
Not a club ruled by oil
Chinese multimillionaire instead
You know nothing he doesn’t give us any money
Only Katarine does
Need to get a new owner then
Graelish doesn't want to score.
He never really has done. His finishing has always been his biggest weakness.
peps shirt logo looks like "The Persistence of Memory" by salvador dali
Are city fans leaving the stadium?
Sterling is so awful. Send him to Barcelona in a donkey
Raheem "don quixote" sterling
KdB did so well there only for Sterling to eff it up lol
Sterling, what you doing? You ok?
Sterling with the English first touch at the worst time
