    Sneaky 1-0 win to us. Somebody unlikely to score scores. Willo or Krul. I dreamed about it!

    City will probably be a win-win game for P45DUE – nobody really expects us to get 3 points, many will be delighted with a draw but most expect us to lose this game.

    P45DUE therefore has nothing to lose by going out to attack them, pressure them, go for a win. If he tries his usual tictacs, to sit back, defend for 88 minutes, hoping to catch them on the break, we will be handed our backsides without doubt.

    City have far too many very good players on call, they will not be worried by P45DUE’s negative tictacs, they will be delighted by them as they have the players to take us apart with the defense we have available.

    Alan, play the game you talk – remember, the “Front foot Footy” you are allegedly renowned for playing, lets see some of it eh!!!

    There are generally four results:

    Win
    Draw
    Lose
    Honourable Win

    I think it will be an Honourable Win for us as we will play really well and at times put Man City to the sword and all the pundits will agree but City will come away with the three points.

    I’d be happy if we play as well as last year – only denied by a blatant refereeing mistake.

    hope we get smashed by 8 goals, only so it’s one step closer to him leaving

    but in reality , I do think they will win, they have a point to prove after last weekend,

    So you want us to lose 8-0.

    What kind of supporter are you?

    You need to see a Psych about your Pardew fettish mate.

    I expect us to win, we are at home and should take the game to citeh, players they are missing or lack fitness:

    Kompany, Demichalis, Zabaleta, Aguero, Negredo

    We have:

    Santon, Tiote, SDJ

    We should always be looking to win at home not any of this ahh well a point is a good result. They are missing key players and we have apparently improved on last year or at least that’s what I’m told.

    There’s wanting the manager to move on then there’s actually hoping we lose and then celebrating and revelling in the loss, that’s just pathetic

    That’s why most people ignore the idiot

    Tbh, first game at home after a complete squad rebuild with key players yet to play in the same line up against the defending champions I’m not expecting a result
    But I am expecting a performance, couldn’t care less about the score as long as we turn up and genuinely show intent passion and commitment over the 90 minutes and give ourselves a platform for a very nice run of fixtures
    Take the Man Utd game on Boxing Day a couple of seasons ago, we lost but we were fantastic and threw our all at them and the lads left the pitch with there heads held high

    It’s looking like Tiote will not make it but De Jong will.

    Therefore, will Anita replace Tiote ?

    Personally I would prefer to see a three man midfield of Colback, Sissoko and De Jong with either Gouffran or Obertan on the right wing. I suppose Anita or Abeid can replace De Jong when he runs out of steam.

    An honourable win then ?

    if a loved one had a curable cancer , and was in pain , wouldn’t you want it over as quick as possible ?

    pardew is a cancer at our club , and you hoping for a win is selfish in my eyes , this has been a long battle with this none footballing gutless coward , as soon as he is gone we can move forward, as we do have a great squad , as we did in the last few seasons , last season should have been a comfy top 8 , but it was a hard slog 10th , and whether we won or lost , the games were painful to watch ,

    the way I see it is , if we are not going to win the league , not trying to win a cup, at least give us a show, something we can enjoy , I have watch many game that we have lost and thought wow that was a great game to be involved in, at least you can say we tried.

    wanting us to win 1-0 by a scrappy 90 min goal or another wonder goal every week is not a way to be happy supporting your team,

    what fan would want that,

    Nice to see the optimism, I went for a draw. However, if you are looking for unbiased assessment, always look for someone who is backing their evaluation with cold hard cash (in other words the bookies). Odds are heavily stacked against us, even for a draw 🙁

    Did we not get Man City again as a first game? 4-0 thrashing, didn’t touch the ball? Was that away?

    Complete squad rebuild and yet to play in the same team? Come on mate they’ve had friendlies and worked to a system hopefully, yes it takes a while to integrate players but if they can’t be up for the first game and look for a positive result then what’s the point.

    The SCUM have beaten a full strength Citeh twice in 2 years, about time we expected some big results at home otherwise there is no chance of braking into the top 6. We should be looking to beat all sides at home and not just settle for a good performance.

    They are missing KEY PLAYER, this is the best time to play them…We should make the most of it, I want a win but at a push I’d take a draw.

    Im looking forward to sunday and seeing how the new lads perform against the best in the lge.
    I dont expect any points ,but what i do expect is positive attack minded play and formation.
    Pardew has it all to prove this season, he ll be getting scrutinized in everything he does,in every game we play,
    If we start badly i think he,ll be gone by Halloween.
    City apart, i think we have 5 really winnable games after that, whether home or away.
    No excused this time Pardew,give us something to shout about and let opposing teams worry about us instead of us being wary of the opposition.

    What I would give for a CB in the old Jaap Stam mould, a Tony Adams or Woodgate…..

    I think we might create more chances this year which in itself protects our defence if we are up the other end, whether we take them or not.

    My hugest , biggest worry is our CB positions. Colo a year slower and willo you never know what you are going to get. Pardew you are a bloody muppet for not strengthening our weakest area…..IMO
