VMC's Some Might Say: All Over Now
Three stars on our badge. Manchester City, Champions of England. The Manchester Victory Parade is imminent and the euphoria will last the summer and beyond. Reaction...
Roberto Mancini, Cool For Cats:
'We are happy because we won this trophy after 44 years. We changed the history of this club by beating a strong team like United. Now I hope we can continue to win.
'I have never seen a finale like this though...I am very proud of my players though. They wanted to win this title until the last second of the last game.'
Vincent Kompany, Ultimate Captain:
'It is one big blur. I remember jumping on top of Sergio when he scored the goal. He was crying on the floor.
'All the guys were pouring their eyes out. You don't see strong personalities like that showing their emotion so often. We expected to win the league today. The disappointment of being one goal down was incredible. For us to do it was one of the best moments of my life, together with my wedding and the birth of my child.'
Samir Nasri, Piers 'Morgan' Moron Stuffer
'I have never seen anything like it in my life! To score two goals like that and give us the title in the 94th minute, it is amazing and I am really happy. I knew that I made the right decision coming here!'
- The infamous £10,000 moron title bet? 'I will give it to charity tomorrow, because some children need this money.'
Sergio Aguero, Goal Machine:
'It was absolutely unbelievable. They are absolutely great supporters. From beginning to end they were right behind us. They've treated me very well from the moment I arrived and I love them loads.
'My personal objective is to keep improving as a player and win more trophies. This has given me even more confidence!'
Carlos Tevez, City Lazarus:
'The game was out of this world. This club have got lots of players who can win trophies. This is a real big step towards that. Let's hope we can win more and more trophies!'
Mario Balotelli, Hatstand Match Impacter
'It's better to win like that than win six nil. United will suffer a litte bit. That's better for us. When they scored the second goal, I was warming up with Micah. He was upset and I said, wait, we are gonna win. I believed it and I was right.'
Brian Kidd, Manchester Legend:
'The character and the camararderie of this team was never in doubt.'
David Platt, Shrewd Right Hand Man:
'The be all and end all is that we won the league because of the way we played this season, we scored more goals than anybody else and defended better than anybody else, but I've never gone outside of myself the way I did today!'
Mark Hughes, QPR Manager:
'If we had pulled it off and won the game, it would have been the greatest Premier League performance in history given the significance of the game and the attention focused on it. Maybe we just switched off. I have never been involved in anything like that but Roberto would have to admit he has been lucky today.
'I congratulate City. It is a huge achievement for them. I am sure there will be many more in the future. We touched the well of apprehension they experienced. It was all the more exciting because of that.It is nothing to do with me,' he said. I was pleased for the players I worked with because I know the qualities that they have. They all came over and shook my hand but the credit is totally theirs.'
Joey Barton, Serial Offending Nutter:
'Can do nothing but apologise to the players and the fans. Still don't think it's a sending off. Tried to take one of their players with me....Still not my proudest moment but who gives a f*ck, we are safe..........and that is all that matters.'
Sir Alex Ferguson, Runners Up Manager:
'They can go on as much as they like - that's what you would expect - but the history of our club stands us aside. We don't need to worry about that. I think we have a rich history, better than anyone and it'll take them a century to get to our level of history. We accept challenges. We are good at that. On behalf of Manchester United, I would like to say congratulations to our neighbours.'
