do you understand how little i want to live


digitag

Yes, very well thanks


THZHDY

at least it's man city, we lost our 11th game in a row yesterday by conceding 5 at home to a newly promoted side


latino666

I'm worried about villa fans sanity lol fans are already leaving the stadium


P0RTSMOUTHFC

You never know you might be lucky to keep it below 6


vikingvikas

In the first half

You should


Rascha-Rascha

Considering they did the same thing to the team I like a few days ago, I’d say, yeah.


comphys

Hello friend


Woodstovia

Fulham 2.0


Edeolus

You must be the first person to come up with that hot take.


AWilsonFTM

He’s a mag what do you expect?


Dysmo

Not exactly but I feel the energy mate


megeralt

Little did you know


[deleted]

If you feel like that in an completely expected loss to city, never ever watch matches against Burnley or whatever


John_Yuki

yes


Deathbybunnies

Danny Drinkwater and I could put in roughly the same shift out there.


gangbangkang

Drinkwater and Mahrez still linking up well together.


bigDickVanDijk

I'm putting in the same shift. From my couch.


[deleted]

you’ve gifted city fewer goals, though


YourPupilsDilated

Man needs to be put out to pasture.


Shrinkmeter

What the fuck is he doing.


[deleted]

I put my money on you my man


oysterpirate

Danny Drinkwater needs to come off ASAP


the_dalai_mangala

Seriously lol he’s having a 0/10


inobond7

How bad from a Bakayoko to 0 ?


Masterofknees

At least Bakayoko had the courtesy to get sent off.


HowBen

Drinkwater is looking fucking parched


ketolasigi

The Bakayoko special


latino666

I bet he's even getting a red at some point this game lmao the icing of the cake of an abysmal appearance


lordchew

Let’s not be hasty now


TheDrySkinOnYourKnee

He is not at anyone else’s level mentally, physically, or technically. And on top off all that, he’s clearly bereft of any confidence. It’s like the time I played with a group retired pros, a desperately out of shape headless chicken


Steupz

Dribbled by De Bruyne isn't a peculiar suffering.


TheDrySkinOnYourKnee

Watch again though, he literally makes De Bruyne’s mind up for him and allows him to turn and run at the exposed defenders at half pace


Billy_LDN

Drinkwater is moving at half speed


WesBrownIsOKForAManc

Tell me why didn’t Chelsea ever give him a chance?


Sean8162

This could get ugly


pimpboss

*COULD?* It already has


Rain_On_Them

TIED HENRY


Sean8162

He’s actually been insane since he’s come to the league


[deleted]

That Aguero guy isn't bad either


SpookyBread1

Yup, imo Aguero is the better striker, however Henry is the better all around player


Bumi_Earth_King

In Carra's podcast, Henry said he doesn't consider himself a striker or a goal scorer.


FatWalcott

He's an attack helicopter


tfwnocalcium

Nice up to date joke you have there


[deleted]

Yeah both are different type. Both are not just poacher. Great dribbler and eye for goal. It's just Henry was better as playmaker.


dobby20401

I think that’s quite a fickle thing to say to be honest, what do you mean? Henry played as a striker he was a goal scorer at core. But on top of that he was the better all round player as well. He was the perfect striker


SpookyBread1

Henry doesn't even consider himself to be a striker. But it's also because Aguero has got the same amount of goals as Henry in less games, and considerably less minutes cause he gets injured a fair bit


dobby20401

I don’t know how you could argue he wasn’t though


SpookyBread1

Because Henry himself said he wasn't a striker. I think he knows more about his own position than us


dobby20401

It just feels like something people say without any real meaning


SpookyBread1

either way Aguero has scored the same amount of goals with about 3000 less minutes played. That's nearly an entire season


gd16dcfc

But he clearly was a striker


imranov

I respectfully disagree


[deleted]

Henry still leads the way for the most assists in a premier league season (20), so much more than just a goalscorer He also had 24 goals that season btw. Insane player, probably the best to ever play here


Citeh

Did you ever watch him? Henry is absolutely the more complete player.


costryme

You disagree that Henry is not a more complete player ?


Mainstion

I don't know in which way you mean exactly, but let's be honest, even though Aguero is an all time PL great, he never reached the level Henry was.


imranov

u/nwordcountbot


[deleted]

And in considerably less games too, right?


ErikPerikSperik

Henry has 175 goals in 258 games, Aguero has 175 in 255.


MagmaWhales

Aguero's played about 18,689 minutes though and Henry 21,313. That's in 3,000 less minutes which is almost an entire season.


LazyassMadman

I consider that less games


Max0699

Not considerably but less games.


[deleted]

No, round about in same number of games, and Henry has more assists, as well. But I'd argue that injuries have hampered Aguero's momentum more often than not.


Garlicl351

2 less games


Rain_On_Them

Minutes on the pitch is considerably less


[deleted]

Very good point.


HKAGooner

Three fewer and Henry has 30 more assists


Mad_Piplup242

Same games


[deleted]

It's like poetry


SickVibes

Exact same?


lluckboxFIFA

Lol just stand off aguero


cavsking21

City are getting back in form at the right time for UCL


_Konstantinos_

Madrid vs city should be amazing, especially if both hit peak form soon.


bustedracquet

2 of the Top 5 teams in the world, kinda absurd that that tie is happening in R16, but will be great to watch.


speedycar1

Laporte will be back too. Shit


9eldios

& Sane, should be a great tie


speedycar1

Will he even start with how good Mahrez has been?


9eldios

Probably not. I don’t think Pep would trust Sane freshly off an injury to start against Madrid, he’ll probably use him as a super sub like he did last season


bellerinho

Mahrez plays on the right though, doesn't Sane only play on the left?


Masterofknees

Yeah, but that's where Sterling plays, and he'll no doubt be preferred, even if he's had a slump recently. A rusty Sané that has his eyes elsewhere is not going to be our difference maker.


bellerinho

Yeah I agree, no way Sane starts above Sterling


speedycar1

Sterling plays on both sides . So they can play Mahrez right Sterling left


[deleted]

As long as their back line remain solid, city will be favourate. The problem is somehow they do make worse decision in CL. Laporte last year. Before that ederson and otamendi.


Tim0110

Aguero missing that penalty in the first leg against Tottenham did the most damage, IMO.


[deleted]

Second leg handball by llorente. You need all the luck if you want to win any championship especially knockout one.


Tim0110

Yeah, you'll need to be a bit fortunate. But Aguero scoring would've tilted that tie so much in City's favour that the handball wouldn't have mattered.


[deleted]

You don't know what would have happened after penalty. Strategy changes with scorelines. May be city would have scored 3 or 4


MortonMad

Drinkwater is just totally phoning it in at this point. Could be 10 the way it's going.


Grodan_Boll

Why doesn’t KDB get the assist here?


_ThatIrishGuy_

Wondering this too


Grodan_Boll

He got it now, so 2 assists to his name


fappelmoes

Villa are utterly trash, this is just training for City


mrlee10

We have no players left. What was you expecting to happen?


absurdlyinconvenient

said Norwich, a few months ago


mrlee10

Funnily enough the game after that we absolutely trounced them, what’s your point?


absurdlyinconvenient

Having an injury crisis is no excuse for players not putting a shift in?


exciseduty

Kevin de Bruyne winning the battle of Chelsea rejects so far vs Drinkwater


AT194

Drinkwater’s and Mahrez’s respective career trajectories on full display here


arvindanar7

***IT'S AGUEROOOOOOOOO***


imfatal

Lmao that pressing from Drinkwater. Literally just runs past him and lets KdB turn the other way.


koke84

He didnt even run per say just walked fast by him


Man-City

Henry on suicide watch, Aguero going for his goals and de Bruyne going for his assists.


Chiswell123

Some goal to break Henry’s record Edit:tied


EvenGandhiHatesLVG

Fuck me he’s in some form


TheBlueTango

Fuck me you're in some form


mougy

Is this a new copypasta or are u just copy pasting the same comment in every thread?

He's back. The boogieman.


chowieuk

Baba yaga


M0D3Z

Fuck form he's in me some


[deleted]

What a hit


pogray

He’s absolutely kicked it into the goal


Mithrandir_The_Gray

Some fans leaving the stadium in the 30th minute absolutely disgusting. It's not like your losing to some farmers team.


ziggylcd12

Genuinely a disgrace of a performance though. No idea, no fight, heads down. Fans are owed heart at least. Worst thirty minutes in the past two years arguably.


Mithrandir_The_Gray

Surely some of the boys that played out there today could have shown more heart, but it was disrespectful towards the players like Grealish who are really fighting for you every game, when they could be playing at much better teams at the moment. We got trashed in the past two years in the CL, but never even thought about leaving the stadium early. It feels better to keep loving and supporting the club, even if we're down 5-0, rather than going home grumpy and sad.


vibarbo

And it’s not like we’ll be in the prem much longer. Enjoy it while it lasts


Waltonr

Maybe they're off early for half-time to drown their sorrows?


GhandiHadAGrapeHead

That's what I did, then the 4th went in and I headed off. Would rather be in the pub with my mates than watch this group of "footballers" fanny around getting battered for another 45.


Reiss20

Why would you want to watch this


REDSNATION1

He hates Villa


SnapSnapWoohoo

He hates everyone

Absolute banger

UnderpantsGnomezz

Bloodbath incoming


Kriskobg

Lol Villa are in for a roughhh day


charlie161998

Giving Aguero a bunch of space on the edge of the box doesn’t seem like the best idea


imranov

Aguero’s looking for blood aka henry’s record


Pulsar-GB

He’s baaaaaaack


etnr182

U just don’t give him that much space


qwertyell

This is not ideal for Villa.


lordchew

This does make me feel a tad better after Watford winning today, could be an absolute hammering.


_Tundr_

Already leaving lmao


AWilsonFTM

One of the greatest PL strikers we’ll ever see.


Whitetack

Gonna get messy.


-Whisperr

I fear for the Villains


mougy

This getting ugly.


AntO_oESPO

The Aston Villa fans are gonna have a fun time this afternoon.


madone999

Jesus what a finish


[deleted]

He is on level with Henry now right


pimpboss

What the fuck man thats just sexy


555HAM

Run away, Pepe, run away!


Sean8162

Villa fans literally leaving in the 29th minute.


Amazzle

I thought my 5-0 prediction was extreme


pimpboss

VILLA FANS LEAVING AT 28 MIN INTO THE GAME LOL WTF


JLaziale

People already leaving. Imagine paying a ticket to see this shit as a Villa supporter meanwhile players like Drinkwater earns millions playing like an amateur.


Max0699

Oh you beauty


LacklustreYaz

Great goal but Drinkwater is piss poor


[deleted]

dont drink and play football lads


koke84

Danny drink at it again!


SuperYoshi95

game is already over


CT_x

You have to just laugh. KDB and Aguero too good, City still incredible even if there's a big gap.


[deleted]

It's amazing how much of a jolt pep put into Aguero when it seemed like he was tapering off.


[deleted]

Did I mention that Scott McLachlan, the chief recruiter of Chelsea Football Club, bought Danny Drinkwater along with Marina Granovskaia, our CEO, for £35m?


Toast_My_Muffinz

Lol that’s a fifa goal right there


here4mau5

Running riot


IwishIwasGoku

Nyland isn't very good is he


RickardsBedAle

Do you see the space they’ve given cities forwards? This is basically shooting practice for em


IwishIwasGoku

Very true and fair. Keeper errors are just more noticeable I suppose.


kinx

Can be be blamed for the first two? And I didn't see all angles of this one so it's hard to say about this one.


[deleted]

He should absolutely be saving this one. Comfortably if anything truth be told


IwishIwasGoku

The first one you could argue was partially his fault. Low shot into the near post but not hit with that much power, a top keeper saves that imo. Second one no. This one I think 100% he should be able to punch that away


absurdlyinconvenient

yeah I was looking for someone to say that. Should do much better there


pimpboss

FUCKING UFFFFF


AlexBayArea

This team wants blood


wadonious

Villa might as well take off Drinkwater and play with 10


Syrupsniph

just take danny out man this is embarrassing


HaarisM

Wow. City are playing like Villa aren’t even there


[deleted]

His goal has Villa fans leaving the stadium after a half an hour. Absolutely savage.


LeBronto_

Spongebob_imma_head_out_.jpg


xKasterborous

Now that is a thundercunt


vertigo1899

Like this it’s easy for KDB to get 20+ assists / season.


awoody8

Why would you give aguero that much time lmao


FishCowDog

We want 10


WonderingWoods

Drinkwater ready to call it and walk out like some of their fans


CodifiedRadian

Backin up backin up backin up. My daddy tought me good. -- Villa defence.
