    Such bitterness, Scouser. No youth system? Idiot. You have no idea what you are talking about. Hypocrites? I doubt you have the education to know what that means. Boo hoo. Enjoy the relegation battle.

    “This time, the route to goal was somewhat more prosaic. A corner from the right-hand side was met by a tremendous jump from Micah Hyde, whose downward header might have been cleared were it not for Carlos Tevez frantically swiping at the ball from three yards out. ”

    Micah Hyde? I knew that City were on a mission to snap up the worlds greatest talents but I didn’t realise they were quite so close to achieving it…

    @Liverpool – In fairness to City they had two players in the first eleven who’ve been on the books since they were young (Hart and Richards), not to mention six English players, which I think is important.

    Whilst there’s nothing especially savoury about ‘buying’ honours, neither is it wrong, as many teams have proved in the past. I say good luck to them. They might need to settle down and not switch the manager at the first hint of trouble, but they already look like one hell of a side and should offer England a good number of players who are already playing alongside some of the best in the world.

    Besides, as someone who lives in Manchester it’s kinda good to see the headlines not endlessly dominated by United anymore, let alone the nice change that comes with people talking about City positively.

    This reminds me of my old Championship Manager days, I’d have a team full of superstars in the premiership then bring in one of St Albans Citys strikers to see how they fare surrounded by these players

    Micah Hyde must have thought his days were numbered after his release from Barnet in the summer but he pops up tonight in Manchester Citys expensive squad, just like them old championship manager days :)

    Heh, this is what happens when I am still up writing this nonsense at close to midnight after a nine hour day at work. I have updated accordingly.

    City have been pish with loyal fans for decades. As odorous as the way that they’re buying the title is, I don’t think anyone can begrudge their fans a bit of success

    This is football, I think we can begrudge anybody anything

    joe hart played for shrewsbury richards played for oldam get your facts right and i am not a scouser and i dont follow the crowd pick a team and stick with them dont just follow who has got the most money at the time

  10. Michael Wood says:

    My word reading the squabbling of the Premiership is tedious isn’t it. One imagines that this is what a meeting of the Bullingdon Club was like – a lot of rich people squandering money and not realising how utterly sickening they appear to everyone else.

    @ liverpool

    And Liverpool’s success in the 80’s didn’t come about because they had the pick of the best players and could afford to hire them I suppose?

    Pot, black, call, kettle.

    [...] The Monday Night Match: Manchester City 3-0 Liverpool “Well, that’s one question answered, at least. Those that had been wondering how long it would take Manchester City’s diamond-encrusted team to gel this season have their answer, and it is quite a specific one – give or take a few seconds, it took one match and twelve minutes before the team clicked into place and from then on the result of this evening’s match was never in a great deal of doubt. While City gelled, Liverpool were oil and water.” (twohundredpercent) [...]
