Houllier & Bent Tell It Their Way

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.

Bluedub, at best you need your ears testing if you really believe that the MAJORITY of villa fans were booing Gareth yesterday. And my, what a touchy lot you all are...did I hit a nerve boys?

No nerve touched Jonah, we're just pointing out you're talking ***** is all.
