There's this out of town football coach who went into one over Manchester City this week following a procession of high profile rags who've been at City all season...
Rene Meulensteen, er, 'technical skills development coach' at Manchester united who very often sits at Sir Alex Ferguson's right hand has allegedly gone deaf in his left ear due to the Stretford bin man's washing machine gum chewing. But that didn't stop him launching a scathing attack on the resurgent Citizens a couple of days ago in what amounted to a fabulous teamtalk.
Having perhaps watched and bought into the BBC's bitter Scouser analysis that The Blues have imploded he publically ranted:
'City do not have a well-balanced team. They only have individuals who play for themselves. You can see that City lack the right team spirit. City are in a position to win the league for the first time in a long while but that is breaking them up. I thought they wouldn't hold out to the end.'
Oh dear. City followed up the caning of West Bromwich Albion with the thumping of Norwich City and worse was to come for the Dutch know all as City's players revealed via social media just how much they are playing for themselves...
'Fantastic 3 pts today and great team spirit. Fans were amazing as always, thanks for your support!' #TOGETHER
'Lets keep it up, with teamwork, modesty and dedication. C'mon, @MCFC! We can do this! #together'
Edin Dzeko, On The Bench:
'Woooow what a game1-6 Well done boys'
'What about our totally bonkers travelling fans. Brilliant... inspirational... simply UNIQUE! May all City fans enjoy their weekend.'
'Great performance thanks guys for your support and congratulation to carlos'
'On our way back to MCR. Fantastic support from the fans. Thanks again guys. You rock. Have a safe trip back to MCR to u all.'
'A lot of luv from other teams fans today on the way we played, appreciated. #realfootballfans'
Taggart has overseen the rag old guard troop out to the hacks to talk City all season. Thirty to Fifty somethings Scholes, Giggs, Carrick, Ferdinand and Evra have all been at the trough at some stage or other, nevermind all their retired pundits.
The message from Planet Blue is clear:
Keep it coming, Stretford!
