Resting players for the Chelsea game? You don't rest your best players away to Real Madrid in the Champions League. A thrashing tonight won't help their preparation for Chelsea. If this goes horribly wrong, Rodgers might look back with regret.

To be fair despite my initial disbelief, on reflection he has left out a host of players who have simply not performed over recent weeks and replaced them with players who have been on the sidelines waiting their chance and have rightly been given it. Rodgers has based his decisions on form not reputations and you can't really argue with that.

Madrid is freezing in the winter. Can be a lot colder there than in Edinburgh. The snow can be mental at times. Add in the drop of temp from summer into winter and you soon get why they have heaters in Madrid.

Yes, tickets were BOGOF, yet still couldn't fill it. Why are they expanding a stadium they currently struggle to fill? There are always ticket offers at City e.g. kids for a fiver, but they're available for almost every game.

Remember being in a pub in Collyhurst (rough as **** btw) with a group of very much Mancunian Man Utd fans singing this little ditty:

We paid for their home
we paid for their home
what a waste of council tax
we paid for thei home

They don't even go
they don't even go
what a waste of council tax
they don't even go

There was another one along the lines of 'if you're from Manchester your're sure to be a blue, Moston, Collyhurst, Ancoats, Salford too. Well if you think this is true you're nothing but a fool because all over Manchester, United ****ing rule.'

Ironically I was down in Manchester to go to a City game. I wouldn't have fancied letting on about that in that pub though, or cracking jokes about Mancs not supporting United.

They are expanding the Empithad to 61,000. They have some of the cheapest season tickets in the EPL: I think adult prices start at 299, which is far cheaper than Hibs! Yet to regularly fill 61,000 seats, even with regular special offers, is something only a small number of clubs can do. They obviously believe it can be done, and at 299 for league games, perhaps it can; at least whilst the success continues.

My family are in Urmston and Salford, where United dominate. I know a few City fans - mostly good folk who are in enemy territory, but a couple of wallopers who will only ever refer to United as "Munichs". Their bitterness is without limits.

City fans are quite right to moan.

Under these rules it appears that artificially bloated teams like city are bad yet artificially bloated teams like real Madrid and Munich are alright.
It's just a big swiz that's designed to keep the teams who they think will get the biggest international tv ratings at the top of the game. It's denying the public some much needed fresh faces as people are going to get bored of the same old teams.
Maybe they should come up with ways for other teams to compete rather than put obstacles in their way. Big money is the only way right now as there are just too many domestic and foreign glory hunters who have grannies from Salford or Barcelona.

If they had their way then everyone would pick one of these dozen or so teams to support and we can just forget about the rest of them.

Banter like that isn't good but from a totally neutral point of view, it's the United fans that are generally sounding bitter.

The top tier involves City and Chelsea who are competing for the title and the rest are scrapping for the CL places. I'm not sure United people are handling the fact that the glory and razzmatazz belong to the blue half.

They need to stop making up daft songs, concentrate on their own matters and effect change. They have been cities bitches for a while now and if they're not careful they will remain small-time.
