Houllier & Bent Tell It Their Way

As a Manchester City supporter I suppose I should be gracious in defeat. In fact I would like to think I am hence the reason why you have the opportunity on a Man City website to hear what Villa boss Gerard Houllier and his new signing and goal scorer, Darren Bent had to say following their 1-0 win over City yesterday.

Must be really quite annoying being a Man City fan these days. All the money in the world and you're still not very good are you? Tevez was immense yesterday, but, apart from him, you had nothing. Gawd help you if he goes.

Jonah, get a grip. Look at the league table for evidence of how you're talking through your arse. Tevez played very poorly yesterday, too greedy, so where you're getting he "was immense" from baffles me. I suspect you're one of them idiot Villa fans that was booing a player that gave your club such sterling service over what was it 12 years? What exactly is Barry guilty of? Ambition? How dare he want to win something other than the Intertoto cup before his career comes to a close. Something that I've always admired about my fellow City fans is that we treat our ex players with respect and some say we lack class.

We owed you that one chaps, following our total surrender at your place back in December, the day we truly hit rock bottom. Thanks for being present (those of you that were) to witness the turning point of our campaign, you should be somewhat honoured that you lot were the first outfit to be put to the sword by the rejuvenated and reinvigorated AVFC. We wont be in the lower reaches for too long, so those of you who want to put the boot in, you'd better do so now. You've spent an awful lot of money though to still trail the likes of United, Arsenal and Chelsea, quality and class wise. Still, you look on course for the Champions League, something we can only dream about right now, so I'm not exactly well placed to be too detrimental. Good Luck for the rest of the campaign, but thanks for yesterday. Hugely pleasing to roll you over, and particularly uplifting in a childish sort of way to put one over Messrs Barry and Milner. Football is a great game though isn't it. There's high and lows. Sending you lot packing yesterday was definitely one of the former.

Bluedub, what does your village do for an idiot while you're posting on here? Where did I mention Barry? I think you doth protest too much mate. Just because a (tiny) minority of villa fans booed Bary yesterday doesn't mean I did. You're only problem with me, I suspect, is I speak the unpalatable truth..i.e. you have spent a fortune and you're still not going to win anything. You also prove you know f*** all abut the game if you can't see how you lot would struggle without Tevez. In fact, all round, I thnk SADDO probably describes you pretty well.

Bog off Jonah, our team is fine - that was just out 2nd loss in 17 games, every team has to lose and we were fulfilling our obligation of doing that after such a good run. Mancini has improved our team on all levels now and we are now one of the top teams in the league. Imperfect but getting there, and bad days aside, playing some great football.

Tevez was terrible yesterday, so it speaks volumes of the poor fare on show at Villa park for you to come on here and tell me how well he's played! Once again, fair play to the Villa for clinging on grimly, but you are getting somewhat carried away with your one victory. I know we're a big scalp nowadays, but please stop suggesting you "Turned us over" or were somehow the better side, you clearly were not.

Thanks for that Jonah, lovely chap. I didn't say you mentioned Barry, I said I suspected you were one of the MAJORITY of Villa fans booing Barry. Unpalatable truth? You said we weren't very good, we are third in the table. You said Tevez was immense, he was average at best. The truth is Villa took their chance and defended for their lives against clearly a much better side, credit to them for that, but there's no need to talk nonsense.

I never boo Gareth and would have him and Milner back in a flash . Talking to one of your fans yesterday at the game he said you lot think they are both crap. When your manager stops behaving like a spoilt kid in a sweet shop you'll realise they are the sort of players who are suited to winning prem games . Not the flash foreign players with the fancy flicks ,

i for one was quite glad johnson and milner didnt start, and cannot see the reason why you brought them if you dont play them, barry did bottle it quite bad as our crowd got under his skin a bit. enjoyed a few chats with your lot at the station and great bunch, though did see a few get pulled by the transport cops for singing, hope they werent fined as a few of our lads were when they visited your ground.

Now now boys. I will admit i had a little boo towards barry when he first touched the ball, WHO AM I KIDDING? I ******** booed my head off! He gave us 12 years of service yes, and only about 4 of them if that were actually good. His statement when he said he wanted to leave villa was that he wanted champions league football and early indications showed he was off to liverpool for 'champions league' but he ended going to you who didn't even qualify for europa at the time and you still havn't got champions league. And i think by the time man city are competing with the big boys you would have replaced him with a younger better model so the move was for nothing more than money and that is why i despise the tool! But for milner i would cheer and cheer because i truly believe he went for footballing reasons, he is young and has alot to give to man city and start of this season all the signs pointed to man city doing great things so i dont blame him.

Without Tevez we might not have the same inspiration out of nowhere but we'd have more balance as Carlos tries to do everything himself which effects the balance of our team sometimes.

All that money and still nothing to show!! ha ha Great players, no team spirit. And the stetchford end clock rolls on another year. One million years and won diddly squat. If you had more players like Tevez and Milner you'd win something but there's too who dion't give a turd about manc city. ps Carlos Tevez looks like Steve Bruce

"if you lot can't see that Tevez is cayig you, then you never will win anything" this Jonah is a quote from your good self ( note quotation marks ). You continuously question my intelligence yet you come out with a corker like that. I don't need to ask you if you are intelligent because I can see from that quote that you are as thick as pig *****. And to think you're actually a moderator on Vital Villa, God help the decent fans on there.

Yawn at the Villa fans - Did we come on ur site taking the p*ss when we hammered you 4-0 nah i didnt think so THATS cos City fans have class and are very gracious in victory and defeat (unless its v the rags) - DID you deserve to win? NOPE, Was City unlucky? YEP, So we lost a game boohoo but atleast the toys are still in the pram, When we played like u did v Arsenal we was ripped apart for it, but yet we just cant win with any of the outsiders jealous views because you are all blind to the bigger picture AND that bigger picture is City will rule the world!
