As usual a week made a significant difference in football and also in the life of Manchester City. Two poor results followed by an excellent performance left the fans in an 'if only' state once again.
First of we get brought down to the level of a club 18th in the third tier and forced to head for an FA Cup replay we didn't need. Can anybody explain why Jo started and John Guidetti fresh from 3 goals in the EDT (plus another 2 this week) was left on the bench? Then two points dropped against a relatively poor Birmingham City, who were gifted a penalty as Phillips grabbed handfuls of fresh air as he plummeted to the ground having clearly lost the ball by some distance.
Then we whack West Brom, who play much more adventurous football than Birmingham but who simply don't have the personnel to fulfill Di Matteo's wishes.
In between all of this Chelsea nad Livepool spend more money than City but thankfully despite £50million going on Torres and what £30million plus on Carroll, neither of those wonderful teams are ruining football. At least our acquisition of Dzeko looked like chicken feed compared to this outrageous spending.
Is Arsene Wenger the new 'Pinball Wizard'? Not only does he not see it, he didn't hear that disgusting creature Fabregas' verbal outburst to the match referee in midweek. If he would only shut up he'd have the full set - deaf dumb and blind.
But the good lord he giveth and he taketh away and as Arsenal, Chelsea, Spuds and Stretford cashed in on City's continued desire to snatch a draw out of the jaws of victory, so Arsenal and United faltered today. United surprisingly lost their exceptional record to bottom of the table Wolves, who have also whacked City this season but even better was those ridiculous football masters of North London surrendering a four-goal lead against a team with no strikers. And how refreshing to see ex-City hard man Joey Barton score two penatlies against them and Dirty Diaby get flirted. So city are once again snapping at their heels like Fabregas running his stud down an opponent achilles. Maybe that did shut Wenger up!! He should wouldn't have envisaged writing himself into the Premier League record books in that fashion.
United have traditionally bounced back from adversity in the past, but they probably wouldn't have selected City as their next opponents. So next Saturday once again will be a nailbiter.
Half wit of the week must be David May, a rubbish footballer who got lucky when he was panic-bought by United and managed to sneak into the team that won the treble. Now he is a lucky blog-writer who got rubbish and has set up some sort of party night to celebrate City allegedly not winning anything for the legend 35 years.
I say allegedly because I'm sure that Stretford's finest think they won the League Championship in 1967. What some of these educationally challenged morons don't appreciate is that City won the Division One Championship in 2001/02. So what you might say? Well... guess what trophy was handed to City that day? Yes the same one that you lot were handed in 1967 and indeed us in 1968. So not arrogant ...just better? No. Not smart..just thick and blinkered.
And as for May? Well what a total useless idiot he is.
