The Curse of Clattenburg strikes again

So, the world and his wife are pretty much in agreement about THAT penalty! It never was and should never have been…unless your name’s Mark Clattenburg. Even by Twattenburg’s appalling standards when officiating City games, penalising Raheem Sterling was breathtakingly bad. It begs a question or two of this most arrogant of referees…is he inept or a cheat? Is he hopeless or corrupt or, as some would have us believe, […]

Time for City to earn their spurs

Pragmatic Manuel Pellegrini had already put the kibosh on any ‘quadruple’ codswallop, long before Manchester City were outfought, outplayed and obviously outfoxed, by an irresistible Leicester City. City’s abject capitulation at the hands of Claudio Ranieri’s hungry, crafty troop, meant the pre-match title favourites were never on the scent, leaving even the most optimistic fan wondering if Pellegrini would capture one trophy, let alone four, before he departs in June.

It’s quite bizarre that Manchester City are still the bookies’ favourites for the Premier League title… surely Liverpool won it last Sunday didn’t they, when they demolished Spurs 4-0? Oh, I’m sorry the Scousers haven’t actually won it yet… but you’d never believe it from the scenes at Anfield and the media’s sycophantic slobbering all over Brendan Rodgers and the ubiquitous ‘Stevie Gee’. For Premier League chief Richard Scudamore, it […]
