City Fans Lose Their Bottle?

City Fans Lose Their Bottle?



There is a lot of poor press about right now concerning an incident which took place as players left the field after yesterday's match between City and Blackburn Rovers.

An article by the Guardian tells the world it was a glass bottle.

Whilst I am certain that nobody connected with Manchester City, be he/she a fan or employee, would condone any unlawful object being thrown on to the field, at least surely the press reporting could get to be a bit more on the button.

I actually saw this incident on Saturday, although from my position I couldn't see exactly who threw it because of where I was at the time in the Stadium.

The bottle in question was clearly a plastic water bottle. It did have some water in it and it landed close to where El Hadji Diouf and Chimbonda were prancing about celebrating their disgraceful performance which they considered earned them a draw.

Anybody else who watched their behaviour at the end of the match will see that Chimbonda clearly ignored the Steward's request to hand his shirt to a young fan at the front and selected to throw it into the crowd which causes people to leap into the air to try to catch it and could result in personal injury to the fans concerned. Thank you Chimbonda. You are a poor quality footballer in a poor quality team and your behaviour is consistent with that. El Hadji Diouf might not be every one's cup of tea, certainly not mine but at least he did as he was asked and a young Blackburn fan went home doubly pleased.

Although it would appear that based upon this behaviour Blackburn won the World Cup yesterday, at least in the end the players made light of the bottle incident as GMPs finest instructed them to leave the field and then took the bottle away as 'evidence'.

It is quite infuriating that the Guardian should seek to inflame this incident with no hard facts and it is once an example of "shoot City down at all costs."

The Grauniad did some seriously non factual stirring around the time Bellers left. Something's not right there.

Funny how the rest of the press reported it as being a plastic bottle, yet the grauniad, that bastion of liberal truth got it so badly "wrong". Agenda or what? Personally cannot ever condone things being thrown at a player of whatever persuasion, but stewards and police need to take action against players who clearly set out to goad opposition fans. And it's no surprise that it was the walking turd that is El Hadji Diouf that was at the centre of the controversy yet again - I reckon it must have been a disabled fan who threw the bottle in honour of Diouf's well known penchant for parking in the disabled spaces and not giving a flying **** about anyone but himself.

Come on pedmachine, I can appreciate that Diouf and Chimbo didn't behave well but calling us a poor quality team and talking about our disgraceful performance just reeks of bitterness. You are better than that dude :)

Mikey Delap i wouldnt bother, they are so bitter after blackburn picked up a good point against them...If they cant handle a bit of roughness from teams (which they will come across alot) then they arn't premier league title contenders simple as, Chimbonda can also give his shirt to who he likes LOL and so what if they were celebrating, isnt that what football players do with their fans? Also discracefull behaviour from whoever threw the bottle...Should be banned from ever going if they cant handle their team 'drawing' LOL

Ah, is this the same Pavfc who posted on another article that, having seen the footage, there was a clear penalty not given against us? The only consitent thing about you P.villa is your inconsistency.
