    I think you’re right, although SG will need to win more than one trophy next season or it wont be classed as an improvement.

    That was a hell of a birthday party yesterday!
    Fernandinho turned 36, and City beat PSG 2-0 (4-1 aggregate).
    Istanbul here we come.

    Yeah, best of luck, Chris. Well overdue for City to win the CL, which would cap a wonderful season for you.

    Who do you fancy in the final - Madrid or Chelsea?

    I don't really have a favourite pick.
    Both teams have strengths and weaknesses, and can be beaten, as can City.
    We'll see who it will be soon enough

    Just thought you might fancy Madrid, as it would feel less like an EPL game, although you may consider that Chelsea would be easier to beat, perhaps simply out of familiarity?

    What's your record been like against them in the league this year?

    We beat Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge, while Frank was still managing them.
    They beat us 1-0 in the FA Cup semifinal the other week.
