Manchester City Fans - Playing Second Fiddle

Manchester City Fans - Playing Second Fiddle

Google language translator


At the best of times, being a Manchester City supporter is to say the least, testing.

After years of playing second fiddle to a neighbouring team, isn't it about time we, Blues fans cast aside the torment of playing a so-called backstage warm-up act and featured as the main performer?

Money does not bring prizes, or in our case, trophies. Garry Cook has done everything in his power to bring one of the world's finest players to Eastlands, in this case, Kaka. Ronaldinho shunned us in the summer, but who will be next?

Mr Bellamy (second string signing) is to replace Jo as one of our strikers, yes a proven goal scorer, but having played for eight previous clubs, will Craig be the City saviour?

Noel Gallagher said on Radio 5 Live (Tuesday 20 January) that Mark Hughes needs to be given time, although he doubts he'll be the manager come the end of the season. If that is the case, who will come to our rescue, Garry Cook?

Within my lifetime, I can predict one thing. Manchester City will no longer be playing second fiddle to no one, including those crawling around the Swamp. Me, I'm only a whipper-snapper at 45, but I can go to my bed rest assured that as long as a breath, Manchester City, (and within a short space of time) will be looking down at the Rags and others in the so-called top four with contempt.

We are still in the hunt of winning the UEFA Cup. We are still in hunt of finishing within the top eight in the Premier League. We are still in the hunt of signing the best players in the world. We are City.

Inspiring piece Tudor! Im glad for the sake of your sanity that you have been nowhere near the internet or Sky Sports News for the past 48 hours, and you have put things into perspective. Its a matter of time, and we are in for a long, emotional journey

To be honest, over the last six days I haven't been within a hundred feet of a PC, TV, radio or a newspaper. Does it tell?

Aren't you the lucky one. I bet you have had some good nights sleep as well whilst the rest of us have been chewing our nails and burning the midnight oil awaiting the next bit of trivia coming out of the media.

This is what we are going to get from the press evrytime we try to buy someone of Kaka class. I dont think that is going to be possible until the summer of 2010,but this summer we can certaiunly try and build a very good team to challenge next season.

Today KennyClementsTache is pure bristling Haig and Lord Melchiot Socratesian sable; chest puffed out in Churchillian pride with vintage No2 shirt straining at the leash. Why, we'll fight them in the boardrooms, we'll fight them on the touchlines and dammit, we'll even fight them down by the corner flag. Gentlemen, change your studs for from this day onwards we will be known the length of the land; from St James's park to er, St James's Park as a team who no longer shoulder arms at the sight of a 2nd Division side in a 3rd round draw but will, be it Sunday lunchtime or a Monday night under the pylons, match them shoulder charge to shoulder charge chasing rain sodden 50's leather football whilst stout WAG quarters half time oranges in a borrowed Scout hut. Sirs, no more will we attempt to catch teams on the break, from now on we take the game to the enemy!
