Sparky & Big Samuel Post Match Reaction

Sparky & Big Samuel Post Match Reaction



Rovers Boss Big Sam pointed to City's spending as the reason City won 2-0 at Ewood today. In contrast, Sparky hinted at a new found City siege mentality...

Allardyce:

'I think it was very harsh. Our failing today was in the poor quality of our finishing. Shay Given's pulled off some very good saves, which you'd expect him to do, but perhaps not quite so many in the first 45 minutes.

'It's our misfortune that when the chances dropped down, we didn't quite finish them off. We did everything but score, and at the end of the day, you pay millions and millions for that quality of finishing.

'The ones who can turn a half-chance into a goal get you more wins, and we couldn't convert really good chances into goals today, never mind half-chances. I'd say Adebayor's was only half a chance and it was a great finish. I can't think of any other chances Man City really had after that.

'There were a couple of good saves by Paul Robinson from Robinho but after all that, we still lost 2-0.'

Hughes:

'Many people might have been looking to see if we were going to fall flat on our face today and I thought we gave a great response. You saw great character from City today. If we continue to play with the character we showed today then we will keep progressing.

'We stood up to the challenge and we showed the qualities we will need.'

- Quite how Sparky can sleep tonight is beyond me. Mini Taggart's Everton were humiliated today and it was all his fault. And that Joleon Lescott's. Priceless.

And in a hilarious riposte to the smacked arse faced Everton manager's midweek City focus, the Blues boss said:

"The headlines were quite predictable. I am not surprised David feels a bit aggrieved with the situation, you always are when a big club comes along trying to acquire one of your better players.

"You never want them to leave but we feel we are doing things the right way and through the proper channels."

I cannot believe that Fat Sam said that, he of all people know that when you come up against a class side that any chances that come along then you have to take them, you wont get too many. Toure and Dunney made sure of that. What we did was create openings and then finished the job.

We did a professional job, nothing more, nothing less.

Wolfie - Doing just a professional job in these sort of games is sometimes all that is required. Get in front and the pressure is all on the opposition and we have pace and quality on the counter attack to finish the job. A great nickname 'Mini-Tagggart' for Moyes as I've seen Darren Ferguson interviewed before and he is fair and honest so you wouldn't have thought that him and SAF were related. Moyes himself is as bitter and arrogant as the man in question and looks as if he should be related to him!

We need to be consistent this season and we need to be ruthless with team that last year stood more than a chance of beating us.

Good result for us AWAY from home - thought Barry was outstanding but the back four still look a little 'shakey' at times.

Coxinthebox, City have had years of players being taken away from us by bigger clubs with more financial muscle, so we know how it feels. However, we are not impressed with Moyes calling us disgusting. He is living in the past if he thinks a cosy little chat between managers is all it takes to sort out transfer deals these days. Football has gone corporate and it is the Chairmen and chief executives that do the deal making; managers merely identify their targets and let the money men get on with it. To hear Moyes bleating on about how we went over his head was so pathetic it was risible. And to blame City for going about the deal in the "wrong" way is to discount the role our esteemed gutter press play in hyping these things up. Of course, Moyes will now blame your abject surrender to Arsenal on Manchester City as that seems to be about his level. Bottom of the table after one game. You won't stay there but the wheels have come off your attempts to crack the top 4 already this season, and once you are knackered by the Europa games, I predict a mid table finish for the Toffees. Should have taken our money and run (a month ago, when we made our first bid). Don't blame City for your season going pear-shaped, blame Moyes.
