I’m not entirely sure why fans are getting so upset about this news.
If you take a look at Man City’s recent record against us, should we really be expecting anything different? Plus, we’re mathematically safe, so unless fans think that we have an outside chance of qualifying for Europe (we are only six points off seventh place), I’m not sure what all the fuss is about.
Speaking to the press ahead of our game with Manchester City tonight, Steve Bruce outlined the latest injury news for the Mags, including a less than shocking update for one player:
“Unfortunately we’ve picked up one or two. Almirón and Saint-Maximin in particular are struggling. Andy Carroll picked up a groin strain. Jamaal Lascelles has a sore ankle so we have a few.”
What will happen first?
PL season finish
Bruce's 2nd signing
Whilst Andy Carroll getting injured shouldn’t really be any surprise to us at this point, to lose our top and joint-third goal scorers this season would be a bit of a blow in normal circumstances, but as I said earlier, I don’t think it’ll make too big a difference to our season.
But that hasn’t stopped these fans from going rather overboard with the reaction to the news.
5 at the back it is then… That worked very well last time 🙄😂

So we have no players left? Wednesday will be a blood bath.
