Mark Lawrenson, you drippy get. Same defeat prediction for Chelski on the 13th please....
Johnny Baguette
Mark (I think I know it all but haven't a clue) Lawrenson, is a complete and utter ****
Tudor
Already visited Vital Chelsea. We will be going for it on the 13th.
Johnny Baguette
well done to SWP! he's going to be a major player this season- good luck to you lot!
forza chelski
I'm impressed... City were very good. Efficient, dangerous, cool and smooth. Hamman is a master, and his quality and temperament rubs off on all. A great game by all, notwithstanding the disgraceful tackling from Sunderland and the crap from the ref.
Hbrock
I have to agree about bthe ref. What a terrible performance! At least he was equally bad for both teams, but surely he shouldn't be refereeing in the Premiership!?
Ghost of 76
Was pushing my luck today, pressing the record button on motd before the game finished, usually a jinx. Great Win. taking the bias about SWP away, anyone ideas who the MOM was? Watching the highlights does not actually tell the whole story.
Buzz Lightyear
Who voted for Joe Hart I though he had nothing to do all afternoon.I bet it was a girl.
Buzz Lightyear
Who voted for Joe HART? - none city fans. Only those who wish to gain posting points me thinks!
Tudor
Guys,Do you expect Corluka will go to Spurs & How many defenders we have now?!!
city 81
Dont count Berti yet City81, Mr Hughes does not know how good he is yet, Nedum is injured and Zabaleta has never played in the Premier. Richards was replaced today by TBH because he was injured but not know how badly, so It would be best to keep Corluka, because not only is he a quality defender, we like him and want him to stay, but that would leave us short if these injuries are long term. However if enough money is put onto the table by a bidder, I expect them to accept it.
Buzz Lightyear
Stevie Ireland hasn't had a vote yet and he scored.
Buzz Lightyear
Agree with you Buzz, Today Corluka was great .
city 81
Wright -Phillips what a legend the bloke is, should never have left. Has been good business though £12m profit on the deal LOL
Dean1
The story goes that Corluka stuck around longer than the rest of the team waving goodbye to the travelling Blues. I can't imagine he will now be so captivated by a Spurs side who have lost their way again. Looks like he's off?
Johnny Baguette
Charlie must be thinking twice about his future...Does he stay and be with a very successful team or does he go and face an uncertain future...
alphieblues
He's gone!
Johnny Baguette
Very professional performance yesterday. Looked good in nearly all areas, the only exception is that Jo still hasn't adjusted to the pace of the Premiership. That will come! SWP a breath of fresh air. Happy days!
oliverblue
