Crisis ....What Crisis ???

Crisis ....What Crisis ???

Well what a funny old game this is, and what a difference 90 minutes can make.

Earlier this week there were calls for Pearce to go, but after this afternoon's 2 - 0 win against an equally under-achieving West Ham, Psycho has got himself some breathing space and the wolves have retreated from his door... for now anyway.

The game wasn't a classic by any means, but who cares, the result was all important today; just ask Alan Pardew who tonight has probably swapped places with Pearce as the manager most likely for an early bath - those 'fantastic' Argentinian signings don't look quite so clever now do they.

A couple of special mentions:

1) Samaras for proving that he does have the ability to become a top class premiership marksman

2) Ishmael Miller - awesome performance by the young lad and proof again that the Academy lads are one of City's best assets

And I can't really forget to mention the Gaffer - well done Psycho, it's been a really tough week.... take tomorrow off - you've earned it !

'Even in the Quietest Moments' , 'Some Things Never Change' - if Pearce had got the sack it would have been the 'Crime of the Century'. Come on 'Give a Little Bit' of credit and 'Take the Long Way Home' !

It's time the knockers took a look at who are really in the sh.t e.g. Jol, Roeder, Southgate and Dowie. Hey MERLIN I'll carry on dreaming they usually come true, you see we will surprise a few people this season...anything Drogba can do Samaras can do better.

Psychotique 1. circa 2006 Proven, battling football man management skills. Former World Cup leader of men full of top flight experience with coaching badges ad nauseum. Full of enthusiasm with admirable post match honesty and grace. Still a tactical novice but learning all the time. 2. To keep a clean sheet at home. 3. see also The Phoenix From The Flames Effect.
