Don't think I've ever been more certain of a defeat in all the cup finals I've had the pleasure of watching us. 

Alonso will start. 

Luiz will start. 

CHO will be benched. 

Pedro will be subbed off for Willian in the 60th

Kovacic will be subbed off for Barkley in the 70th

Alonso will be subbed off for Emerson in the 80th.

 

Sarri sacked.

Not to repeat Cicero but same formation, same side passing, same shit subs just hope it isn't as embarrassing as the last time we met. Also to quote him again there has never been a final i felt less optimistic and i watched my first in the 1999-2000 Fa Cup final when we defeated Villa.

Prediction 3-0 City

Not to repeat True Blue who repeated Cicero but can't see anything but a loss in this... We all know there will be no tactical changes or indeed any variation to the line up.. It would take an almighty effort to get everything right on the day and I just don't feel the team are mentally up for it even though it is a final...

We are one Marcos Alonso mistake from completely throwing away the final

Yes this is very true and pretty much sums up my feelings before the game.

I feel the same every time we draw a Championship team in the 2nd round.

False 9 very much a tactical move. Higuain left a lot of space in his pressing which made it easy for City's midfielders to receive the ball. Still needs time to adjust. 

No Alonso which is great news. Think we'll only lose by 3 now.

I think you will have learned a lot from that hammering the other week and will be a tight game this time being a cup final

Well lets hope we make a better show of it than we did the last time out... as long as we go down fighting that's all I can ask, you never know, everything could go right for us and wrong for City...

On his day he is, just needs to be more consistent. Arguably the best player in the league if you forget his constant whinging about wanting to leave.
