Taggart Slams FA While City Cop Fixtures Raw Deal

Taggart  Slams FA While City Cop Fixtures Raw Deal



As hacks queue up to deliver more toe curling arslikhan in his general direction, the Stretford bin man has complained publicly about the Football Association...

You'll find some journalists today talking up the possibility of the rags receiving eight England call ups for next month's Euro 2012 clashes with Wales and Bulgaria. A possibility, but highly unlikely to become a reality with a number of those players holding out for fringe squad opportunities at best.

Ferguson, bordering on assuming the call ups were done and dusted, revelled in being asked about the long shot of all eight of his English players getting the nod from Fabio Capello then chose the moment to complain bitterly that the FA treat united unfavourably:

'It is fantastic. The FA may realise who has produced more players for their country than any club in the world. I am pleased for the players....They are outstanding.

'Maybe the FA will get some joy from it and realise how important we are to England instead of treating us like shit. I am pleased for the players. They are outstanding.'


- Treating the out of towners like shit??

You will never find any English hack pointing it out, but Manchester City, who repeatedly provide six players to the England squad and repeatedly field those players week in week out in the league have got on with the job regardless.

Even this week as the BBC Director General grovelled to Ferguson over future interviews and the rags secured yet another piss-easy Champions League Group Stage draw, City braced themselves for an autumn that will see them play six FA Barclays Premier League fixtures away from home after all six of The Blues scheduled Champions League fixtures.

Meanwhile, outside the city walls, the rags have secured six home league fixtures to follow their Champions League strolls.

File under beyond belief.

Love the way the media are portraying taggart's volte face to the BBC as him being reasonable - that couldn't be further from the truth. The FA have been fining the rags for every post-match presser that taggart has avoided, and the fines have been getting heavier. The FA pressure has finally come to bear on the arrogant smugsters and taggart has been forced to relent. funny that he makes such comments just when he's supposed to be acting all "reasonable" eh? Pity the old canute can't see the irony in accusing the FA of being biased towards his club (David Gill must be really useless at those FA policy meetings which he chairs!) when he's finally given up his arrogant pretensions of not speaking to the BBC over some allegations about his bent son that have neither been disproven nor denied. Football in general will breathe a huge sigh of relief when this blinkered arrogant bas tard finally shuffles off into the sunset.

He must be upset that the FA isn't showing them the same "respect" that UEFA clearly has shown them. UEFA understood that they would be worse this year than last so they gave them a walk in the park to the knockout stage. I think they are expecting the FA to just hand over the title to them now without having to earn it.

The rags and old bacon face get what they deserve from the FA. I can't see what he can be complaining about. The problem is the divine-right mentality prevalent at the swamp. On the fixture front this is a definite cock-up by the PL. The fixtures are arranged so the Rags and us never have home fixtures on the same day. They have set the fixtures so one of the teams is home after every game and the other is away, it's not rocket science to prevent this happening. I'm sure Taggart would be moaning if they'd got the away games.

will the rags be on 'normal' TV and Sky, or on Sky but via the Red Button, to match choice as their is only the Benfica match that any TV exec worth his salt, will pick for broadcast, whereas City has a class opposition in every match.... hmmmm if you were neutral what would you watch? Rags or City, but it wont do the Rags Prawn butty brigade any good, top dollar for 2nd class teams.... no change there then.....

Does Referee Anthony Taylor Require Remedial Training?

Anthony Taylor took charge of yesterday's Premier League tie at the Etihad Stadium between Manchester City and Chelsea but I have to say the 38-year-old Wythenshawe, Manchester born..

Manchester City 1 Chelsea 3 - Johnny On The Spot

Thirty-six minutes of madness...

Highlights: Manchester City 1-3 Chelsea

Manchester City went into halftime one up following a Gary Cahill own goal but come the end of the second 45 and by the time referee Taylor had blown well into the 6th added minute..

Stats: Manchester City v Chelsea
