I don't think we have a thread for this.

What the fuck is Pelligrini doing? Of course you prioritize the Champions League but they have a relatively easy tie against Dynamo Kiev and he's not even playing backups against Chelsea, he's playing an U21 side.

While Tottenham has Dier, Kane, Alli, Son all starting...still 0-0, but Palace has cleared 2 off the line, including one that hit post and rolled 10 feet back across the goal line like it was on a tightrope.

Eriksen and Alderweireld are on bench and Lloris is sitting.

This Spurs-Palace game is a lot of fun to watch (especially after that goal).

Both teams had some good fortune. That should have been a penalty on Dembele early on for hand ball.

That ball that rolled across the line was unbelievable.

Right now FA cup has got to be dead last in Pelligrinis mind. He's got a shot at the champions league and premier league and doesn't need another fixture set in April/May. And has a very good chance at the other English cup. Sucks because I love the FA cup, but that's a no brainier to me.

I enjoyed the hell out of City's match today. Loved seeing the youth play and every goal was the fault of a senior player anyway. With Kiev on Wednesday and so many injuries his hand was mostly forced. Especially given that the stars left are some of the most injury prone ones.

Chances are City will still struggle with Kiev and lose to Liverpool in the CUp final. But Pellegrinis gave them the best chance at results by rating players today. Especially in a FFP world, making progress in the CL will always be prioritized
