Must be a classic case of the pressure being off but what a great result.

Must be one of the only giant killings in this whole round.

Mates just off the phone saying the new loanees look like making a huge difference. Keeper from Man City , Billy O Brien, was seemingly very impressive. Found this article about him. Seems he is highly thought of ....

 

So who is the mysterious O’Brien?

Well, he’s a goalkeeper in City’s youth academy.  O’Brien has been with the academy since 10. According to BlueMoon, he earned a two-year scholarship and impressed with the Under-16s due to his keen distribution and ball handling — the reasons Pep probably likes him. O’Brien is also know for his ability to handle opposing crosses. In 2014, he was loaned to Hyde FC. Now 20, O’Brien also features for Wales under 21s

 

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Guardiola’s chosen O’Brien to join the first team. Prior to the start of the season, O’Brien accompanied the senior squad on its preseason tour in Germany and China instead of training in Croatia with the rest of the youth squad.

So, his career is one to watch with interest in the coming years. His academy competition includes Angus Gunn and Ian Lawlor. Listed as “did not train,” Gunn wasn’t included for the upcoming UCL tie, opening the door for O’Brien to gain some first team experience.

As the third keeper behind Willy Caballero and Claudio Bravo, it’s unlikely O’Brien will play unless disaster strikes City. The other youngsters put on the squad, Pablo Maffeo and Angelino, are more likely to get minutes, especially if the Blues develop a comfortable lead over the traditional power in the Scottish Premier League.

I heard the keeper had a good game and a solid back line is what has been lacking as well as a decent midfield and attack!!

Yep. He said the young lad from Aberdeen looks as if he will make a huge difference. 

 

Sorry it didn't work out for Walsh and Hardie but you have to remember Callum Gallagher was well ahead of both of them so maybe not so surprising as he has struggled to hold down any kind of first team place

 

This is the most upbeat he has been in months. He managed a whole phone call without bringing up Kyle Hutton  :lol:

 

Also noticed that McKenzie scored again. We are looking for a decent centre half. We ll swap you Senderos  to have McKenzie back
