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

The Devil Will Find Work For Idle Hands To Do



Hapless drifter Benjani and spent force crock Martin Petrov get on the diss City bandwagon and follow unsavoury footsteps bemoaning a club their injuries were nursed at...

The lack of professionalism and spoilt brattishness across world football beggars belief these days. Millionaire superstars queue up to slate their former employees. Before we go any further, let's make it clear that this isn't a situation exclusive to Manchester City.

However, Stephen Ireland, Petrov and Benjani all found themselves unable to raise their form to the high standards set by Roberto Mancini, and now themselves offloaded, opt for their own bitter offloads.

We've even seen goalkeeping veteran Kasper Schmeichel, whom Sven-Goran Eriksson didn't rate dishing out advice to Shay Given in recent weeks! Nedum Onuoha to a lesser extent had a pop.

Let's listen to 31 year old Rigsby, first.

Serious injury meant that the much admired winger was losing the edge to the speed that his game was all about. He missed many months out of action and obviously fell down the pecking order. Yet, despite the superb medical assistance he received at City, he's up for a bit of a tirade. Don't forget, he's got self obsessed form in this area. He's with the Bulgarian squad getting ready to face an England squad that boasts six Blues:

'100 per cent no, I don't miss City. If I accepted their one-year offer now I would be on loan somewhere else. At the moment at City people are becoming more bad than good. The human relationships are lost and the trust is lost too. In this situation the players are going to play like millionaires in games and are not a team on the pitch.'

Thanks for your input, Rigsby. Across three years he managed 59 City appearances and 9 goals.

Next up, 32 year old one season Pompey wonder Benjamin Mwaruwari, who has set himself up for a frosty reception at Eastlands a week on Saturday with his latest club Blackburn Rovers:

'It sounds great, but in football money is not everything. What is needed is people who can hang around and love you to be there. Sometimes you are loved to be there because of money, which is not good. I would prefer to be here without having all those facilities, be happy and trust everyone around you...behind the scenes, there is no trust. I would prefer to play for a club where you are being trusted and you trust everyone around you.'

Good grief. He goes on to accuse City's players of being money motivated. You ask yourself what deal himself and agent Willie McKay held out for to get him to Manchester in 2008 in a protracted farce. Across two and a half years, where he was brought back to full fitness from a serious thigh injury, Benjani scraped a pisspoor 23 City appearances and 4 goals.

So in conclusion, we have two thirty something players nearing the end of their careers ungratefully rounding on the club that has helped prolong those careers with intensive medical treatment and rehabilitation using the top drawer facilities Benjani would rather not have.

There is a siege mentality forming at Manchester City and by many insider accounts, the players have formed a spirited close knit unit at Carrington.

Keep the team talk's coming ex Blues. We await Robinho's first expert analysis with headshakes at the ready.

I come in peace, but this reminds me of a North Korean news broadcast, i have to say I do find it funny how everybody who leaves you is portayed as an idiot by this writer, yet mercenaries such as Mario are labeled "super" Honestly how long will it be before Super Mario throws his dummy out. Surely youd agree that things arent all rosey at Eastlands and some players egos n all are BOUND to be very unhappy with the way they have been treated etc with the ridiculous spending and chop changing taking place. A good 30% to 40% of your 25 man squad are now at City purely for the money. If youre being honest youd agree. But aslong as youve got that "sprited tight-knit group" all shall be fine.
HuddersfieldYiddo
Truth hurts?
TheFamousNo7
Well said, JB. Great article about players who were on the inside, expecting to just retain a place, and didn't want to work as hard as they should have. It's too bad, because Petrov was a pretty decent winger, just didn't try enough. I have nothing to say about Benjani, because he never did anything worth talking about, except maybe that goal against the rags.
PhillyBlueMoon
Its 5 players who have slated the club now hudders, But we all no there idiots and wrong LOL
P.Avfc
I knew this article was coming also ;) there will be a robinho one in the next few days talking of his lies!
P.Avfc
Idle hands? More like idle minds! These players were all shipped out for a reason, being bitter about it is pathetic. They are at Bolton and Blackburn for a reason - being *****e.
eighthsin
Damn, thought it was about the Smiths... I stole and I lied, and why ? Because you asked me to !
The Fear
Didn't Toure and Super Mario admit that they never wanted to leave their former clubs? I wonder why they came here?? Mwahahahaha :P
Zbam
HY, we don't know the answer to that we#ve not seen him play a fuill match yet.lol
Buzz Lightyear
Sorry folks, but why is anyone surprised that these walking egos are upset at losing their cushy little numbers at City? The revolution has come very quickly, and it must really hurt players like Ireland, Petrov and Benjani to be told that they are not of the accepted standard required by our club any longer. Notwithstanding the fact that Petrov missed the best part of an entire season by defying club orders and playing for Bulgaria, where he sustained a serious cruciate injury, once he'd returned he spent most of his time pointing to the name on his back - hardly the actions of a man in love with our club - quite the converse, he was and still is entirely in love with himself. Benjani was a last minute panic buy by Sven - we never really wanted him, he never really wanted us. His *****-poor stats speak volumes about his worth to the team, and he simply had to go ASAP. Don't even get me started on Cobh's own answer to Lionel Messi! So to sum up, these are three players who were on great wages at a team that has gone from mid-table mediocrity when they signed to potential title challengers when they left, and they are on the outside looking in wondering what if? That's got to hurt, and in the ego-driven world of football where the interest on a player's weekly wages probably exceeds their IQ a hundred fold they are naturally going to vent their hurt to anyone who will listen. I could care less about their remarks and am not the slightest bit worried about them. For one thing, there is a reason they are gone and they are just confirming we were right to get rid, so let our rivals have a laugh at what they perceive to be problems where there are none. The only problems are in our ex-players' heads.
fifthcolumnblue
This is Commandant Yi-Baguette. All ex players speaking ill of our club will from now on be tortured and shot.
Johnny Baguette
Zbam, HY, do you honestly believe that top players being hacked off if they can't get a regular start and similar saying they never want to leave their clubs then leaving are rarities and situations that are exclusive to Manchester City? Zbam, if so, you have to be speaking from experience supporting Chelski.
Johnny Baguette
P.Avfc and huddersfield yiddo all quiet on your site then pleeeeeez the baguette relays it as it is no spin here fact pure and simple Slate all ex players ? Dunney? No See the Blue Moon Rising ...grab hold of the coattails lads
taggarts nose
We will still win the reserve league. P.Avfc
taggarts nose
Yeah, but then we'll be accused of ruining reserve team football t's Nose! LOL
fifthcolumnblue
Robinho - now there wasa deal we were glad to dip out on :-(
merlin
Damn, thought it was about the Smiths... I stole and I lied, and why ? Because you asked me to ! The Fear................and if a double decker bus should kill the both of us, to die by your side such a heavenly way to die - great lyric!
merlin
Pmsl, this is getting hilarious now. Don't they realise they're starting to look like bitter ex that just can't accept the break up?
me_innit
Closet City fan PAvfc with his usual entertaining comments, no surprise there, how's Heskey? Huddersfieldyiddo, one wouldda thought you'd be on Vital Spurs celebrating your world class signing instead of kissing Benjani's backside,ah well, each to their own, and you forgot to type 1st before your comment as is your tradition. Curious though how you came about your percentages, bet you're one of those itks, lol.
me_innit
I have a few percentages for you me_innit - 28% of Spurs fans are secretly obsessed with City, which explains why they're always here. 31% of Spurs fans like to gloat about things that haven't happened, 99% of Spurs fans are in for a big let down when they realise that Yes, Van Der Vaart is a pretty good player, but DOH! they actually could have used a decent striker or two. One thing is certain, 100% of Spurs fans will be eating humble pie come the end of the season when they yet again fail to win the PL or CL. But hey, they talk a good game eh?
fifthcolumnblue
What have i said whats so bad? 5 of your ex players have slated your club, I reckon everyone other than city fans will see something is going on there, they no what happens inside the club, no city or other fan does.
P.Avfc
Taggarts nose whats so wrong with me saying we will win the reserve league, We lost alot of games last year and the years before but we have still been champions 3 years in a row. And here comes the comments "thats all you can win" but look up the history.
P.Avfc
Actually P, it's the other way around. As City fans we know what these players do both on and off the pitch. You as an outsider only see the big headlines "City ruined my carpet" screams Benjani, etc. etc. Petrov was talented but flawed and a complete sulker, ditto Ireland. Benjani was just flawed (nice guy, but that's not enough). So for you to come on our site and suggest that you know more about these players and our club's inner workings is either patronising or deluded. These players were not good enough to represent Manchester City any longer and now they're gone. Couldn't give the slightest toss about how hurt their feelings are.
fifthcolumnblue
FCB you think anyone who has an opinion against city are deluded. The players feel that they were treated unfairly and to say there wrong as just a fan is wrong. They no what goes on in city, The fans dont no the slightest and thats the same with every other club. 5 Players cant all be wrong.
P.Avfc
PAvfc .....why don't you go back to your own site where you may be able to give constructive criticism because you may just KNOW (please note spelling as you seem to have a problem with it) something about Villa. But as far as MCFC are concerned ...If ignorance is bliss, you must be orgasmic.
Doody
You dont make sense.....Next!
P.Avfc
Point made ......
Doody
The way this site reacts to 'outsiders' reminds me so much of the league of gentlmen
Phartman87
We have no problem with any visitor that comes in peace ...knows something about the workings of MCFC and has genuine input ......however there is an element who only come on here to bait and they are treated with the disdain they deserve...
Doody
Doody whatever i say i will be shot down by you lot, I only pointed out that 5 ex players have slated your club so any person would think something odd is going on.
P.Avfc
P.Avfc this is a very hostile site where if your opinion doesn't go with theirs you're going to get slated. Whether fact or opinion you're going to get argued with.
TheFamousNo7
PAvfc and as we have pointed out they are 5 ex players who COULD NOT make the grade so they are bound to be disgruntled....
Doody
7 ...this is not a hostile site, as has been stated if you come in peace and you know what you are talking about you are most welcome ....those who only come to throw stones or insult will be treated with the disdain they deserve.
Doody
Doody oh yeah bellamy couldnt make the grade, Your best player last season, on par with tevez FACT! What does it matter if they didnt get into your team? Why would the all have the same opinion and come out with basically the same stuff. They have their opinion because they actually no whats going on in the club fans dont. They might be sour grapes but you cant say 5 men with the same opinion are liars, they must of been treated poorly in some way.
P.Avfc
This site reacts badly to outsiders?! Try saying anything that disagrees with the Vital Tottenham view of the world and then come back and compare why don't you?
fifthcolumnblue
Pavfc - Bellamy was a known troublemaker at every club he's ever been at - FACT. So why is eveyone so desparate to stick up for Saint Craig all of a sudden? Most of us would have loved him to keep his gob shut and stay, but he kept digging his own grave, and Mancini buried him. We disagree with people like yourself because you are PATENTLY WRONG in your opinions. What the funk is wrong with that?
fifthcolumnblue
P.Avfc ...Does it not strike you as passing strange that these comments did not all come out at the same time ......they have been made by players with a "sheep mentality" ...."oh look he said that and got some sports page coverage ..maybe if I do the same I will get some coverage to help my flagging career" ....
Doody
Fifthcollumnblue all your opinions are wrong too me! Anyone who has a disagreement with city is wrong, Its like your club is perfect to you! And doody i cant see how you can argue with my point, The players in question ovbiously no how they are being treated, how do you no if they were treated right or wrong? We dont no, only the players no and they have expressed their own views theres nothing wrong with that. Theres no point in even makin a point on here because everyone with an opinion and not a city fan is obviously an idiot.
P.Avfc
Lol at these posters going on about ''awww Vital Man City members are sooo mean to us we're gonna cry'' but still cant help posting on here as if were going to plead with you to come visit. Honestly i think if you can only come on here and be a knob with snidey remarks you better stay away or shut up and put up with whatevers thrown at you. The decent pasters like JT Dan the like dont get abused cos they're not WUMs like PAvfc and his gang who only come here when theres negative press. To all the bitter ex players, shut the door on your way out.
me_innit
LOL at you me_innit, Bit over the top there arn't you? HONK HONK
P.Avfc
Doody, theres no need trying to convince someone who's blinded by bitterness towards our club that when geniuses like Petroy, Benjani, Bellamy and Ireland open their mouth their every word and motivation is not necessarily gospel. They wont accept theres two sides to every story and these players are only saying what suits them. Afterall why let a golden opportunity to have another dig at City pass by.
me_innit
Course theres two sides too every story, If you actually read my comments instead of thinking i am just attacking your club you will find im saying that the players in question have there opinion and they no how they was treated and noone can really question them if its coming our there mouth because we dont actually no how they were treated. City might also have an argument to this but i havn't heard from them you have heard from the players so non city fans are obviously gonna believe them if 5 of them are repeating basically the same thing.
P.Avfc
HONK HONK? seriously? And you call Willy childish, ah well.
me_innit
Not saw thw aviva advert? Thought not get a sense of humour, Willy had a childish mindset, he was a teen and abused the site, I am giving my opinion but you all cant take it when you get abit of critisism. Need to lighten up no club is perfect.
P.Avfc
So you think MCFC are going to respond to every silly comment in the media? I dont even need to respond to a statement that so blatantly casts serious doubts over your maturity. And you're basicaly saying even though you know its one sided you'll choose to take their side cos it suits your agenda, congrats. Awww, poor millionaires, they were treated badly cos they didnt get an arm around their shoulders, people suffering around the world should take note, this treatment is unacceptable, how dare City make a player train in the reserves even though he wont be in the 1st team.
me_innit
You know i was just thinking - if it wasn't for CITY wouldn't the EPL be boring. What would the hacks write about? What would the 'transfer window' be like? What would Villa, Spurs and the rest of the fans have to post about? Yep, it's a FACT guys that CITY are the life and soul of the EPL.
Thaibluefan
All players should be treated equally, Which seem's that yours wasn't after 5 players have came out and said it. Yeah good one my opinion shows my maturity because i believe "5" ex players over a club that hasn't really showed respect to every one they have came across. Everyone has their opinion and when it isnt even exactly a dig at city for just believing "5" players opinion, I shouldnt exaclty be being shot down for it.
P.Avfc
Forgot to add - how would EX-PLAYERS make a decent living?
Thaibluefan
Thaibluefan your joking right? The premier league has been exiting for years before city became rich. Even if city folded the premier league would still be the same, And we dont just post on the city site, Spurs site and villa are more active than this one and everton isnt so bad. This site isnt the life of the premier league you no its just a website LOL. The transfer window might be a bit dull, but other clubs will soon get takeovers and clear debt and will be spending alot of money aswell so i disagree with that one.
P.Avfc
"Course theres two sides too every story, If you actually read my comments instead of thinking i am just attacking your club you will find im saying that the players in question have there opinion and they no how they was treated and noone can really question them if its coming our there mouth because we dont actually no how they were treated. City might also have an argument to this but i havn't heard from them you have heard from the players so non city fans are obviously gonna believe them if 5 of them are repeating basically the same thing." Is this the same Pavfc who argued that just because Craig Bellamy said that he would only join Cardiff if he had to leave City didn't make it true? So what makes the words coming out of Bellamy's mouth any less true than those coming out of our disgruntled ex players' mouths? Ah, I see - Benjani, Petrov et al have made statements that suit your agenda, Bellamy didn't. Pavfc, can I suggest you look up some of your old posts and have a read? You will see that you eventually contradict every point you make - which unfortunately leads most of us to doubt virtually every statement you make. Perhaps you ought to work on your consistency when slating the club we all support before you go casting your aspersions.
fifthcolumnblue
What do you mean by that thaibluefan? Are you trying to be funny which you clearly arnt, by making out and mixing my words that i mean retired players? Because they could earn a living from coaching, managing + there already loaded. But if your not trying to be funny and refering to the players you have sold then, just because there not on high wages at city anymore doesnt mean that there not rich. Players at the likes of blackpool are alot richer than the rest of us and are sorted for the rest of their lives so i dont understand your comment? Footballers wages are ridiculous, compare them to army, police and nurses wages its disgusting, but still there all sorted for life so ill say again your comment doesnt make sense.
P.Avfc
Ah, the old its my opinion rubbish, you accuse ppl of not budging from their views but i think you're actually talking about yourself. Dont expect to come here and have City fans siding with you and stupid comments from ex players against the club, wont happen mate. if thats what you're looking to do youre pursuing a lost course mate. You might as well stick to Vital Villa where they are more likely to agree with you, its really that simple.
me_innit
Not sure they agree with him on Vital Villa eithe me_innit - that could be why he spends more time on here than anywhere else!
fifthcolumnblue
Still, the Fear will be pleased with all tthe traffic he's generating - which is pretty much all Willy was ever guilty of doing - trying to drum up a few posts.
fifthcolumnblue
Omg heres fifthcollumnmblue the man(well i think) who tells us not to believe the media but then believes it himself when like you say it suits your agenda. You got me wrong about the bellamy situation, I stated that 'in my opinion' i reckon that if a big premier league club came calling offering him good wages he would of probably jumped at the chances to join, He said he wanted to join cardiff which he has done clearly but im basing it on my opinion, i may be wrong but i think he would have. It may look like im contridicting myself but 5 players saying the same thing about man city is hard not to believe even you have to admit that.
P.Avfc
Im guilty of nothing, Noones got a problem with me over on vital villa apart from "nigel-reo coker is crap" for obvious reasons because of his name, I havn't actually attacked man city on this article though you just dont like other people stating what they feel, its what this site is for.
P.Avfc
Me_Innit i dont exactly expect you to agree with everything im saying its obviously not gonna happen we are on a different page but i cant see my point of view, which is by 5 players saying the same thing means its hard to believe that there liars. Dont see why 5 grown men would.
P.Avfc
i cant see how you dont see my point of view*
P.Avfc
Congrats P.Avfc, you've managed to turn another topic on Vital City into a b*tchfest while drumming up your number of posts, good lad, keep it up.
me_innit
me_innit, you, doody and FCB did that, I shared my view and got shot down for it, If your gonna reply back to my comments and slate them then i will never go away until theres nothing to post back too, I will answer back every post you make, I could go all night, well not all night but ill try, i dont have to be up till 10! Its not a bitchfest either really, i have been in worst posts, At least its not got personal like it does over on vital spurs ill give you that.
P.Avfc
P.Avc - you have every right to your opinion mate as does everyone else on this site. One question though - why does Petrov come out with his statement some TWO months after he left?
Thaibluefan
Thaibluefan yeah true everyone does if its resonable which everyones has been tbh. And well this is the case with most, It may be because he isnt the sort of type who will just come out with it and he may be following the trend and getting it off his chest. While still at city it would be stupid to slate the club, only a dummie would do that (bellamy).
P.Avfc
Does it not stink of - international break - transfer window closed - media nothing to write about. Drop the ex-city players a few grand for a bit of gossip.
Thaibluefan
Again i have to wonder if im not wasting time trying to reason with some 13yr old when you're making statements like i wont go to sleep till i have the last word. Your wishes are granted, congrats again, you've won the internet war, you have the last word, i hope this makes you very ecstatic, sweet dreams.
me_innit
Don't worry me_innit - it's only 7.30am for me so i've got all day . . . .lol
Thaibluefan
me_innit, Again i must defend myself...If someone is going to attack me in their post then i am going to defend myself as long as im on this site, Not really immature is it that? I rephrased it wrong, i dont want the last word i will just defend myself in every post which is against me.
P.Avfc
Nice chatting tonight. Shame you turned it into an argument though ;) Dont attack me over my opinion next time...thanks very much.
P.Avfc
Other Smiths songs that apply here: Paint A Vulgar Picture Bigmouth Strikes Again You Just Haven't Earned It Yet Baby
Ahoyskin
Every right to do so P.Avfc. - for me i still think these ex-players are jumping on the Bellamy band wagon and are being encouraged to do so by the media. Never heard a peep out of Garrido but he went abroad didn't he.
Thaibluefan
What's this? Former Liverpool player Javier Mascherano having a go at at them? SHOCK HORROR. These things only happen at City. Hey Pavfc - why don't you go and tell the peeps on Vital Liverpool how naughty they've been? http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=819903&sec=transfers&cc=5739
fifthcolumnblue
FCB we all no that clubs a joke and your missing my point, If 1 player came out of city and said 'they treated me poorly' I would just say oh well its just sour grapes really, but if you was in my shoes and 5 players all said the same thing its gonna look odd isnt it, As a non city fan its hard not to convince me that full grown men are liars.
P.Avfc
I dont want to dwell on this no more FCB, having an interesting debate on a former liverpool man gerard houllier at the moment. No doubt there will be other city fans chipping in with this article in the morning and having a dig at me so, ill come back on tommorow and reply to as many as i can, But ive said my piece to you and bluedub, Goodnight.
P.Avfc
God - the silence is deafening!
Thaibluefan
Former player leaves or is booted out. former player waits for few days with his new club. former player then unleashes tirade of abuse against old club, claiming unfair treatment and lack of trust in him. It's happened to Liverpool, United, everyone really, including us, most recently with Gary Hooper north of the border. Deal with it, don't let it get to you, move on, because the players are just trying to find a reason for their newfound uselessness that doesn't involve being *****e. But the lack of unity that P.Avfc is emphasising will only be revealed to be true or false after a while, so he's not wrong just yet.
DubaiSpur
The amount of accelerated business being done in such a short amount of time makes these things unavoidable. Players are by large moody and petulant so when you move several of them on quickly in an attempt to better your squad, you'll find they speak out rather quickly. Wouldn't be surprised if RobinWHO is next to have a parting dig. But onward and upward to bigger and better things, we have the best squad in our history now and arguably the best in the Premier League. If we can get our new signings healthy and get the team clicking, wham. P.S. P.Avfc has just turned into a generic, broken record anti-City troll.
StuMCFC
Great post Stu, it's only natural that the players that don't make the grade and are consequently moved on are going to be disgruntled, they are then giving their opinions to these hacks with a bitter mindset, as a result they're not going to cast the club that didn't want them in a positive light.
Bluedub
P.Villa - why did you mention me in one of your posts? I hadn't commented on this article. Strange, it's as if you have an axe to grind or something. Couple of points I want to make, first up you keep mentioning the words "lies" and "liars", yet I haven't seen any comments from any City fan on here that are suggesting that these disgrunted ex players are lying, so why do you persist in saying this? Secondly, there are members on this site that do have an insight into the inner workings of the club, that do know more about what's going on behind the scenes than your average fan. We also have the pleasure on our forums of receiving a training report from Carrington on an almost daily basis, which gives us a good insight into how good or bad the spirit amongst the players is. So P.Villa, we as City fans are basing our opinions on the insight we receive through the first hand information we receive about the club, whereas you're basing your opinion on the words of disgruntled ex players, and hacks that have an agenda to cast City in a negative light. That is all.
Bluedub
I believe that every club has a player or three that is unhappy if not playimng in the first team. If they weren't then there would be more of a problem. The difference is when a player on the fringe decides that he is better than the player in his position. This is normal jealousy and you fnd lots of players who feel they should be playing but they aren't for a reason. Usually because the team is better without them. How did these sad souls get for slating their previous club? I bet they went to the highest bidder.
SFC Forever
Normally when ex players move on it is just bitterness but considering that all of your ex's are singing from the same sheet it suggests that it's a little bit more systematic then that. Obviously the opinion of players fringed and marginalised is not the most reliable picture of a club but considering the number of "first team" quality players who will be on your bench the lack of proper manmanagement does set quite a worring precedence imo
Phartman87
Phartman - it is not all of our exes, 20 players left the club this summer, 5 players have sold their story. Your point about quality players sitting on the bench is perhaps a valid one, but the same criticism could also be levelled at Spurs, as well as a number of the top clubs in the PL.
Bluedub
Completely agree with you. The only reason quality players will accept being on the bench is with regular CL football. We (spurs) have a great squad on paper but the situation where good players are not automatically in the starting line-up is completely new to us and will imo be Harry's biggest test this season and next (much more then any imaginary weaknesses in our team) and we'll probably start seeing the same problems with fringe players which will probably be exaggerated with you guys because of the high turn over of players and the expectation (not hope) of instant success
Phartman87
Bluedub, why are you calling me P.villa? I mentioned you in one of my posts because when i share an opinion on here i get shot down by either you, me_innit or FCB. I actually recommend you all read my posts because your all just proving my point, any view i give on city you alll just swarm like wasps and attack. You say that you have an insight in your team, okay im not going to call you a liar and disagree, But if you were in my position and 5 full grown men slated man city then its hard not too believe what there saying...I dont see why thats so negative towards city? Thats all ive been repeating in my comments..every club isnt perfect you no.
P.Avfc
Javi Garrido had nothing but good things to say about the club as an example of a contrary opinion, going as far to say City will always be in his heart.
StuMCFC
Stu - Javi moved abroad mate where the tabloid press is less innterested in stirring up anti-city sentiment. He also always seemed to have a good attitude whilst at the club, unlike primadonna types like Ireland and Petrov. Hardly surprising then that he left with a smile whilst the egos couldn't wait to rip into us at being left out in the cold.
fifthcolumnblue
Zlatan has been talking unfavourably about Barca's coach now!
Johnny Baguette
http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/sport/football/3122829/Zlatan-Ibrahimovic-City-arent-ready-yet.html...........He also said that Baguette, FCB thats his own words so before you tell me to not believe the media read it....In all fairness he isnt slating the club, his comments are spot on.
P.Avfc
Pavfc you are like a bad smell mate.
fifthcolumnblue
P.Villa - what is with this obsession you have with City? It's far from healthy. Also would like to point out to you that if you persist on coming on here having digs at City, having digs at the articles written as well as this site in general, you are going to be met with disdain, this is after all a City fan's site. So, there's no point crying about the reaction you get, if you don't like it you know what to do.
Bluedub
I can do what i like + im not having digs, You think i am because you just dont like anyone giving there opinion on things which doesnt suit you...The only article i have a problem with is the one Willy did a while back. I dont really care what reaction i get, Just proves who can or cannot have a football discussion, This proves you cannot. You have me wrong, I comment on every site when im on here, Your the only ones who seem to have a backlash on anything i say even if it isnt negative towards you.

Ive just read the comments on this article back aswell and all i basically mentioned was that its a conincidence that 5 of your players slated your club....dont no what so bad about that but you all must be on your period...This pointless debate cant go on for 2 days so lets end it shall we?
P.Avfc
P. Villa - why did you read back through the comments? Doubting yourself by any chance? What I posted previously is true, regulars on here will know it and if you're honest you know it too. I couldn't be arsed going back through the archives to prove my point.
Bluedub
Bluedub i read through the comments because i wanted too see what i actually said which has offended and wound up you lot...Im not doubting what you say is untrue. Im not actually having digs at city, I dont undetstand what offends you so much by me doubting the way city treat there players after i hear the same thing from 5 men. I can see where your all coming from but non city fans should be aloud a view also...If im hearing it from 5 ex city players then it's gonna cause people to believe them, i also understand theres a bit of sour grapes going on from them which i have said but still you persist in arguing? I dont undetstand that.
P.Avfc
I can't speak for anyone else, but it's your stupidity that offends me.
Bluedub
Right...So im stupid because i have an opinion which is shared by a lot of people...5 grown men saying the same thing? Any non city fan would find it hard to believe them, if thats stupidity then i really question your intelligence.
P.Avfc
Priceless!
Bluedub
You cant reply to the question because you dont no the answer the question...There is no denying that you are just shooting me down because i have an opinion on your "perfect" club, You have me all wrong i do not have a grudge on city at all...All i did was state my opinion on the situation with 5 players slating your club but yet we have nearly 100 posts on this article argument with me on my opinion.
P.Avfc
dont no the answer the answer* Ill correct that before you try to correct me.
P.Avfc
Or you could focus on your own team instead of ours.

LOL well it was certainly a good bit of banter and always welcome IMO. Makes a change from the Spurs trolls.
eighthsin
Posting crap like numbers simply to raise your post count is akin to spamming IMO.
