    I thought last night's game was fascinating. If Jorginho is the playmaker Sarri obviously thinks he is, why not pay two deep in midfield, with Kanté minding him and providing him with room to play? Italy won a World Cup not so many years ago playing a maestro and an enforcer there.

    That would mean changing things. Sarri don't do changing things, except Barkley for Kovacic around the 70 minute mark then Willian for Pedro 10 minutes later.

    We're as predictable as tomorrow's date. The rest of the Prem know this but he ain't sussed it yet.

    The Beeb have gone for Wolves-Man Utd ( :eek: ) and Millwall-Brighton for their quarters. BT have Watford-Palace and Swansea-Man City.

    City just scored a very, very good pass and move goal that spanned the whole pitch.

    Not that City, though...

    This season, yesterday particularly, has turned into a farce. Utd had a player saved because of VAR. City scraped through and wouldn't have done if Swansea had VAR. The Millwall goal should have been disallowed; I'm guessing no VAR....seems like some grouns/teams are more equal than others :facepalm:

    Gutted for millwall. Last kick own goal for keeper, then a sudden death penalty miss. Pens are no way to decide a game, especially with so much at stake.

    We'd see a lot less empty seats if they were to move the semis outside of London and put them on at 3 o clock.

    Tbf City played in London at Fulham midday last Saturday, were at home midweek, had the semi in London yesterday, have got Spurs in London in the Champions league Tuesday and the following week are back in London at Crystal palace. Thats quite a lot of forking out.

    Agreed. But the FA should give the seats to local school kids etc. rather than leaving them empty.

    They can't sadly because they were sold as a package around completion of the stadium :mad:
    At the very least they could flog them to footie fans.

    I'm all for football banter but the empty seats issue is about corporate greed from the FA, Wembley and Sky and their control over switching fixture times to maximise profit, its not the City fans fault for not having bottomless pockets.

    My post was not really aimed at the fans. Agree with you and hate to see seats being wasted.

    Even with the old Wembley I was always annoyed at how many tickets went to companies and hangers on and it was nigh on impossible for real fans to get tickets. These days it's much worse as whole blocks of seats were sold to companies or several seats were sold to people for all events and Wembley. Generally they often have little interest in football and makes no difference whether they attend or not.
    I was in a very fortunate position and could always get tickets for palace matches be it the final or semi or to a tiny ground like Cambridge away. Was also lucky with England matches and even went to several England Scotland matches.

    Should have some kind of removable stand or label with each company's name on, so you can see who's hoarding the tickets and keeping them from fans.

    Of course, they'd probably just see that as free advertising... :(

    I didn't bother with yesterday's game, as I feared it would be a steamrollering. The scoreline at least suggests it wasn't one-way traffic, although the highlights sort-of indicated it was.

    This afternoon's game looks, on paper, like a cracker. Let's hope they both go for it.

    I'm cheering Watford as a teammate is a fan, and actually there at Wembley.

    Your mate'll be happier than mine so far :(

    Though he did describe this as the match to decide who gets walloped by City :D
