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

Mancio Delivers Taggart Riposte



Not unlike Harry Redknapp, Sir Alex Ferguson has developed a City Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Roberto Mancini coolly replied to Taggart's ramblings today...

Upon the confirmation of City's sixth and final top quality signing of the summer, James Milner, the dapper City gaffer was quizzed briefly about the rag overlord's latest bizarre focus on the former lidde ciddy:

'All the other big teams have spent a lot of money in the past. But not fifteen years ago. One year ago, two years ago, three years ago. This is normal.

'If you want to buy a good player, you have to spend money. This is the market.'


And in reaction to the hacks directly asking him for his view on the City obsessed Stretford Bin Man's latest bitter outburst:

'This is not important for me. I respect his opinion, but I repeat, Manchester united is like Manchester City. They have spent a lot of money in the past.'

Earlier this week the desperate rags boss, boosted by his veteran players latest, yet slowly evaporating high performance hypocritically stated that 'You can't buy success.'

The Citizens are in Timisoara for the first leg of the Europa League qualifier.

There's a photographic sight for sore eyes.

I loved the way this ruddy-nosed clown said we'd spend for a couple of years then stop. Is this not what City have said they'd do anyway!? No doubt when we do then Lineker, Hansen et al will be salivating on MOTD that "Fergie said this would happen". W*****s!

Taggarts interview yesterday sounded like a plea from a desparate man - "we'll need to buy some established names in the future" equates to "Please Uncle Malcom, I need some fecking money!!!" Delighted he didn't retire a few years back as rather than ridicule poor liddle ciddy he is now living in abject fear of us! love it.

We'll never sign a flop as big as Veron ;). At least Robinho had a storming first season.

It could come full circle. They were calling for his head in 89....teh dissenters started again last year.

*****poor rag websites like The Republik of Wancunia are also continuing to follow their leader with City obsessed articles. Pathetic.

I thought we were just the noisy neighbor that no one in Stretford paid any attention too...
