I wish one of the press would have asked him whether Celtic fans would have been the same if they stopped rangers winning the title. Would have been an interesting answer as Ange knows only too well that they would have been more pleased than we are. Their rivalry is on another level to any in the premier league.

What’s shown on every highlight reel of Leicester’s year. Hazards equaliser.
That game/goal DECIDED the title. It was over. It was Leicester's at that point as we couldn't overtake them. City haven't won the title yet. Yes, they're ahead and should win their last game, but Arsenal can still win it on Sunday.

All Tuesday did was put City in pole position. It didn't end the title race completely.

He started off as everyone's darling, but as the season has progressed, he's starting to piss off the media with his rude approach and if results don't start to improve in the first 10-12 games next season, fans will start to turn.

He came in here when it was so toxic and negative and his early performances and results cleared all that toxicity really quickly. recent days alluded to this toxicity creeping back, which we need to avoid at all costs

But he has said he knows what he feels he needs to do by "going back to the drawing board". That tells me he'll stick around to try and change things rather than just walk.

I really don't think he would of cared, what he would of cared about is that it wasn't his team in that position and not the fans rivals.

There is always a ‘moment’ in a title race. Kompany screamer, Hazard against us, Gerrard slip etc.

If City do go on to win it and then I reckon it will be the Ortega save / Son miss. That’s certainly what was being peddled by Sky and Neville etc.

Sure, "a moment". But Hazard's goal is shown due to being the goal that gave Leicester the league. It wasn't just a "moment", but THE moment.

So Ange could you clarify for the fans what you were referring too regarding a fragile mindset?

It is but other moments are shown repeatedly that aren’t THE moment. Kompany’s screamer didn’t win them the league but it’s shown repeatedly.

Jesus, this weekend's game and the end of the season can't come quick enough. I think we all need a summer break.

I was responding to Hazard's goal being shown. To be honest I don't go watching those seasons or highlights back so I have no idea what does and doesn't get shown.
