Taggart and Whinger's City Obsession

Taggart and Whinger's City Obsession

Sir Alex Taggart and Arsehole Whinger are devoting plenty of their time to one subject in their interviews and press conferences. It's Manchester City...

Taggart and Whinger are obviously deeply rattled by recent developments at Eastlands. So much so that they are droaning out soundbytes about The Blues on a weekly basis. The fact that they devote so much time to us is hilarious enough in itself, but it's the absolute ignorance within their moans that are the most stunning.

Sir Bacon Chops has clearly been frustrated by the calm outlook of Khaldoon Al Mubarak, City's new Chairman who backed by our owner Sheikh Mansour has made it clear that City's future will be youth based with heavy focus on the brilliant MCFC Academy. The intent is to build a team steadily. These carefully co-ordianted statements dismissed the media hysteria that had City buying 18 superstars etc ad nauseam.

So, right on the back of our by now traditional League cup exit to lower league opposition, up pops Taggart in an attempt to get the hacks stoked up and drooling over City's wealth again. He's certainly succeeded when you read the lazy rag biased copy being pumped out of 'The Street of Shame*' today.

Reading some of the drivel, you'd be forgiven for thinking Brighton didn't beat a team including the hapless likes of Felipe Caicedo and Michael Ball, but a team of galacticos.

Taggart:

'It's all very well having all the money but you can't buy everyone. It was proved in the summer. There are no guarantees. You can buy 11 individuals - you can buy 11 Robinhos but it wouldn't be a team would it?

'The art of management is building a team with balance, with certain characteristics that blend with each other - that's the most important thing.'

- Has somebody read him the Sheikh's open letter to City's fans?? He rambles on..

'Mark Hughes will be faced with that situation having all this money and wondering what to do with it, and that can put you under a bit of additional pressure.'

- Dear oh dear. Anyone would think the rags are paupers, even though massively in debt!

Then there's Arsenal's Whinger. He's even gone to the lengths of addressing Arsenal's official magazine over Manchester City on the back of his dreary interviews about City tapping up players they haven't even tapped up:

'I don't know why these people are in there. It doesn't look like they are there to make money, so if they are not there to make money out of football then are they buying it out of love? 'Well, I'm not sure these people are supporters of Manchester City from a young age, so then comes a further question - why are they doing it? Why have they bought the club? - and I can't find a rational answer.'

Gobsmacking nonsense of course coming from a manager who regularly fields no Englishmen in his teams and who has obviously forgotten those teams play at the 'Emirates' stadium!

Taggart and Whinger, Manchester City are the wealthiest football club on the planet. Learn to live with it.

Isn't it a wonderful feeling that for forty years they haven't given us a mention they must be REALLY worried that someone is going to rock them out of their comfort zone. And before all the knockers come on saying it will be a one season wonder had better think again the structure is in place now for a sustained challenge to all and sundry.

Wealthiest club on the planet you may be, but whilst our 16 year olds were tonking some seasoned pro's you lot were losing to Brighton. I understand that you City fans have spent a long time without something to cheer about, but what Wenger says is correct, why are they here if it's not to have fun with a football team. I don't blame you for being happy at your current situation ..... but in the long term, Arsenal are a far better run football club and will last longer as we are self sufficient.

Rocky7. City's Academy has kept our club alive for the past 2 decades. 10 years ago we were playing in the third division and our local youth lads dug us out. City's Academy have made "self sufficiency" an "art form" as Sir Pizza Face would no doubt pontificate.

agree with you Alphie,The clubs who thought it was a comfort zone each season have started to realise that it may not be a foregone conclusion that they will be in the top 4 next season. Why don't they write to the Owner and complain instead of chirping on here about it.We would still be here supporting our team whatever the circumstances.

I have to chuckle when I hear about Arsenal's wonderkids! Vella was bought for £2.5m, Ramsay for £5m and Walcott was £10m, like many others no doubt. Sure you guys have a geat worldwide scouting system Rocky7, but half of them are signings, so to me, that hardly consistutes a youth policy. City won the youth cup last season with a bunch of skinhead Mancunian lads, that would give their right arm to play for City! I doubt whether Fabianski, Song, Vella, Perez, Bendtner, etc can say that about who they play for! With that in mind, I'd say that WE are the most sustainable football club. Still, it's nice to know you are concerned enough to pay us a visit!
