A game of two halves. I think if Shane Long learns how to play on side you will be more effective.
If we were consistent we'd be winning the Premier League B Division, unfortunately instead we trail WBA by miles.

Must have been something relatively nasty to get everyone so sparked up.

Watched the 'spectacle' that was Citeh Vs Liverpool. Shocking that there were empty seats a plenty for a game like this. Not sure how both teams managed to be so poor in front of goal. Maybe they have been watching re runs of United this season. Think Milner should have walked. Oliver again bottling every big decision that came up. Also, I'm curious (but not holding my breath) to see if City will get a tug for 'not controlling their players' as they were as bad, if not worse than what United got fined for last week. Also, Yaya was lucky to get away with his delayed dangerous slide tackle.
I agree our players were out of order just like yours and will be before the beak.

Yaya was a red, Milner was a red. We had 2 pens not given them 1.

Oliver is a bottler

The respective fines will be the equivalent of a day's wages for one of the first team players. It'll cost more in admin and legal representation. A waste of time - crowd the ref and get sent off. Simple.

Anyway, farewell Bastian. We'll miss you warming our bench. Fat, slow, hot wife but contributed very little, although always seemed to have the right attitude. Quite sad it didn't work out, but that's another £100k off the wage bill.

I'd say you're being conservative! Probably double that.

Anyway, yes, sad to see Bastian leaving, but more for the fact that it didn't work out for him or us, more than for anything he contributed. He joined United 5 years too late, but then Bayern probably wouldn't have been so keen to see him leave in 2010...

WTF the rearranged Manchester derby is now April 27th THURSDAY evening.
Apparently Stockport Transit are not that happy as they are stating they don't have enough buses for the City fans to travel to the Emptyhad in Manchester.

Yup. Welcome to 7-day football matches.

Stockport bus would make enough revenue from the amount of fans travelling to be able to borrow some extra buses from somewhere.

This is City we're talking about, surely they only need one minibus for all their fans.

What's the problem?

It's not like anyone in the North has a job.

Burned out by 30. The German Wayne Rooney! I bet the CFO will be glad to get that wage of the bill soon?
