'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Man City In No Win Situation

Google language translator


Nearly a week after the whole Kakagate saga came to an end, and certain sections of the media are still rambling utter nonsense about what really when on that night in Milan.

There are now claims that Kaka would have joined IF Mark Hughes was sacked and a high profile manager, with Jose Mourinho's name mentioned, took his place to take us to the next level.

As if the last few weeks were not bad enough, we now have complete and utter fabrications making the headlines. And just to add a few kicks in there whilst were down licking our wounds, Garry Cook takes a few hits from the media for saying Milan 'bottled it'.

Bravo I say to Mr. Cook for having the nuts to tell it like it is. Silvio Berlusconi has become the media darling in his own country once again. He has put himself right back into the hearts of the Italian press and, in the process raised his own profile for his successful political career. Now the British media do not like this one bit. How dare Mr. Cook say such negative words about the owner of such a respected and successful football club?

Yes, the very same football club that was indicated in a massive match fixing probe that rocked the Italian football world to its knees. The very same football club that can honestly (or dishonestly) say it has, at some point, cheated its way to the top.

All I want to say as a summary of this article is that we need to be left alone. You have already done your damage, yes you have had a laugh at our expense, but its over. Let it be.

If there's a new target, you should rip your teeth into then let it be Tottenham. No disrespect to Tottenham fans or the club, but you're a bigger mess than us at the moment and you really should be helping to stop this desperate blogger from waking up every morning to such bitter and blue-cist comments, when the media attention should be clearly focused on your sudden fall from grace.

Kicking against the****s. We may never know the whole truth behind the reasons for Kaka not signing, but for anyone to side with that ubermeister of sleaze, Silvio Berlusconi, is beyond me. In addition to the match fixing, this guy has had corruption charges hanging over him forever, has alleged links to the mafia, controls 90% of italian broadcast media and is well known for his dubious business affairs. Why on earth would anyone, even the red scumbags that write for the tabloids believe his side of the story? Just proves that City fans are not being paranoid, THEY REALLY ARE OUT TO GET US!

The most hilarious aspect of all this has been watching Berlusconi, no doubt after a few reminders from his advisers going into panic mode in openly praising Sheikh Mancity and The Blues. You need friends in this economic client. Especially one's that bail out the likes of Barclay's Bank. Priceless.

Why did the British press side with The Italians, they really didn't wamt Kaka to join City, becuase had he done so and it was nothing to do with money, then other similar great footballers would have followed and the result being a challenge to the stranglehold that the big 4 and the one most in danger of losing that 4th sport was and is Arsenal. Wenger coming out saying he was glad kaka didn't sign.It is a statement saying we don't want the world best in the premier, well not at Manchester City anyway.Arsenal had their chance to be purchased by Sheikh Mansour and turned it down, why shouldn't we but the best players.

The Press have decided that City sells more newspapers when getting lambasted than when praised. Pretty soon though the standard of football will be so good they will have to leave us alone. Just a few more ingredients in the squad mix, and consistent improvement, and the lads will silence all the knockers...
