    Lol, are they Bayern fans? Ridiculous.
    Yh which was why they had a stand closed in a CL game last year for homophobia. :rofl:

    I found what was hilarious, was in the first half when City were playing poorly, Hart punches the ball out which gets the fans anxious. Gary Neville, England coach, who has an aversion to keepers punching remains stone silent yet when Ospina does it in the second half, he has a slight moan.

    Typical.

    Like "lionheart John Terry" and "captain fantastic Steven Gerrard". I'm a Liverpool fan, but pro-British bias is really annoying.

    In case of Neville, it's a clear conflict of interest. He's holding back on Hart when if that was anyone else (or a keeper not involved with the England squad) he'd have said "Oh he's got to be catching that!" and the crowd after that punch clearly got anxious yet he remained quiet and Martin Tyler didn't, IIRC, say anything massively on it either. I kinda wish Neville had decided to leave Sky or reject the England job to avoid this hesitation.

    It's very typical. Happens an awful lot during the CL, too.

    Not too long ago, Coutinho went down easily and he was practically slaughtered by Niall Quinn, I think. Gerrard did the same a few moments later and nothing was said.
