'Typical City' sits well on title day deciders

So much is made of the time honoured words ‘Typical City’ – the self deprecating tag that long suffering Manchester City fans have attached to their team over the decades. It’s a reference to their club’s innate ability to seemingly snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Former playing legend and later City Chairman, Francis Lee once said: “If there was a cup for cock ups, City would be perennial […]

City don’t want trouble - they’ll settle for just a double

Two headlines – 13 months apart – crystallise the hideous hypocrisy and blatantly biased agenda constantly directed against Manchester City. Rewind to March 3rd 2021 and, ‘Manchester City might win the quadruple – and this is not good for English football’ – it’s not exactly catchy and certainly not balanced. Fast forward to April 29th 2022 and feast your eyes on, ‘Neutrals should be cheering on Liverpool’s quadruple hunt – […]

True perfection has to be imperfect for Pep

Pep Guardiola refused to take the bait following City’s sensational 5-0 Champions League demolition of Sporting Lisbon. He’d been asked by the BT Sports reporter if his team was ‘perfect’, in the aftermath of the resounding victory in a hostile Jose Alvalade Stadium? Whilst admitting he was very happy with the win, the City boss insisted there was room for improvement – some of his players needed to do more. […]

City 3 Liverpool 0...when it comes to Premier League titles

Pep Guardiola would never compromise his principles and park the proverbial bus, but a baying mob of Scouse scum made doubly sure it was never going to be an option. The pre-match attack on City’s team coach – which rendered it non-operational – will be viewed as a victory by loutish Liverpool fans and, who’s to say, probably by many associated with Liverpool FC past and present? It certainly served […]

It's Our Year!

‘It’s Our Year!’ For once the proclamations coming out of Anfield were right. It is indeed ‘their year’, but such conversational murmurings applied solely to the Manchester City supporters spilling through the gates of the visitors section of the Anfield Road Stand. Beaten but not bowed, the vanquished City fans had seen their team lose a battle, but not the war. 2018 will undoubtedly be a good year, perhaps even […]

Pundits praise Pep…whatever next?

Either I’ve slipped into a parallel universe or I need to change my ‘meds’, but are Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City actually being praised by all and sundry at the moment? Am I hallucinating or are City winning acclaim following a week of played three, won three, 15 goals scored, none conceded… and all achieved while serving up lashings of some of the most sumptuous football of recent times? With the […]

City will see off sly Sky Sports and putrid pundits

Ignore the facts, never mind the rules and whatever happens, stay on message by undermining Manchester City and always empathise with City’s opponents. It’s a simple enough directive and one followed with great gusto in recent days and weeks by City’s ever growing army of detractors. Led admirably by the snide shites at Sky Sports, the licence fee subsidised morons on Match of The Day, the liars at La Liga, the corrupt […]

Blimey - Slimy Riley wants ‘respect’

‘Cut off the head of the snake’ is an idiom in which you remove the most dangerous opponent first, thereby nullifying the leader so other enemies are more easily defeated. I wonder if it applies to more maggot-like creatures such as Mike Riley, the ‘leader’ of the ‘referees association’ the Professional Game Match Officials Ltd (PGMOL). As Sky Sports News takes it upon itself to run a ‘Support The Ref’ […]

Sterling on the rise as Milner banks a fortune

As Manchester City and Liverpool clash today in the race for a top four finish and Champions League qualification, it’s worth comparing and contrasting the fortunes of two Number 7s. Raheem Sterling and James Milner switched clubs in the summer of 2015 – one in a sh*tstorm of vitriol, the other in a sea of indifference. Sterling joined City to further his career, win trophies and yes, earn top dollars.  […]

Cheeky Liver bird wants City to sell Joe on the 'cheep'

Fairly or unfairly, it’s pretty damn certain that Joe Hart is heading for the Etihad exit in the next few days. Last night saw an outpouring of emotion for City’s popular keeper, as thousands of fans sang his name and applauded his every touch during the win over Steaua Bucharest. Pep Guardiola even gave Joe the captain’s armband for what will surely be his last appearance as a City blue. […]
