Get,Get ,Get, over it...

Listen to yourselves.. do the majority of you even watch football?

Mark Hughes and in particular HIS coaching staff was taking us backwards, yes backwards. the stats dont lie.

Mark Hughes spent upwards of £80m to improve a defence that shipped more goals than bottom of the table Portsmouth.

He picked players on reputations and price tags rather than current form and ability.

He stuck with his own signings as to prove a point that he was a GREAT manager.

The truth is somewhat different.

MCFC were quite right to change their direction, the only gripe to many is that they bungled their way around it.

Garry Cook will, if left in control at our great club, do more damage than anyone outside ever could.

Roberto Mancini.

He is a WINNER.

As a footballer and a manager he WINS.

Now i understand this takes a lot of getting used to being a CITY fan, but which would you prefer.

Happily playing in Div 2 or taking on the so called big boys and WINNING trophies.

?????

Our new boss..

Roberto Mancini is spot on in my book.. He's there for 6mths with a 3yr option.. aim is Top 4.. Hughes and his cohorts had 18mths, and they were aiming for was Top 6 with £200m spend.

And do u for one moment think that any so called British manager would have come to City for 6mths.. WOULD THEY FUCK.. cos all they want is.. more money and a huge CONTRACT.. to line their GREEDY pockets with..

You have all these PONY british managers.. and so called MEDIA pundits, moaning that Mancini coming in is terrible for British football.. No.. I'll tell you whats terrible, is the UK clowns trying to convince us.. the FANS that they have a clue what do with £200m, and that they ARE in turn FOOTBALL MANAGERS.

If he can sort out that squad.. and make Robinho something more than a glorified ballboy.. then he's got my VOTE.

If he can make Adebayor JUMP and attempt to play within a team, then he has my VOTE.

If he can make TOURE see that the reason he was bought was because he is supposed to be a defender, then he gets my VOTE.

If he can turn possession into GOALS, then he has my VOTE, and draw into WINS, then he also has my VOTE.

Because MARK HUGHES.. was outta his DEPTH at CITY.

He was much more suited to BLACKBURN, BOLTON, STOKE, WIGAN.. teams where the only AMBITION is to stay in the PREMIERSHIP.

We are CITY and we DESERVE more..

And with MANCINI.. we'll have something proper to aspire too..

We'll be WINNERS..

Snow

SNOW. Pure white and glorious stuff.. if yer a kid, you'll love it, its magical, its uplifting, its cold and it sometimes sticks to the ground.

In London its had maybe 4 inches of snow in a few weeks.. yep, you heard right.. 4 measly inches..

Snow is bad for transportation.. WHY.. Because on this island, well we just aint used to SNOW.

Nothing new there. In England we aint used to leaves falling off the trees, rain thundering from the skies, wind howling and shaking the buildings.. but SNOW it seems is a nuisance, that Councils and now Governments have trouble dealing with.

Ya see this weeks wonderous but very slight SNOWstorm (ha), caused 100,000+ passengers to miss their connecting Eurostar trains to and from Europe, because the wrong TYPE of SNOW, yes you heard me, the wrong type, infiltrated the Eurostar trains electrical systems when the trains hit the Channel Tunnel in Calais, France.

What was wrong with the SNOW you cry.. Apparently it was too DRY and FLUFFY.. oh good..Glad thats cleared up.

We see Snowstorms on the news, we see Monsoons, we see Avalanches, we see Tsuanamis, we see disasters all over the globe and on this poor little island, we see things grind to a halt because of 4 inches of SNOW.

I seen with my own eyes yesterday evening. A gritter ( sand) truck attempt to lay sand on a nearby road, a full two hours after the SNOW had fallen.. Whats the point Einstein,a blind man could tell you that SNOW was on its way, or where the roads too dangerous for you to drive yer bloody sand wagon.

More ineptness follows the news tonight that the COUNCILS them again, have decided that due to the adverse weather conditions, they will not be collecting REFUSE till into the NEW YEAR.. why you cry.. Because the roads are too dangerous..

You couldnt make this shit up.. And why am i surprised or bothered.. I'll tell ya why.. Why do we pay COUNCIL TAX.. to empty our refuse, to keep our roads clear, to provide us with the services we sometimes need and countless other ones we never see but we PAY for.

Inept councils chosen by an Inept Government in an Inept country funded in no part by Inept people..

Bah Humbug!

The hidden appointment of Roberto Mancini

Personally.. This wasnt planned 3 weeks ago.. This was all set into place last season with the sterling and hidden agenda appointment of BRIAN KIDD..

Then there was the appointment of BRIAN MARWOOD.. It seems our owners wanted their OWN MAN in charge all along. And ya cant blame them, if i pumped £500m into a football club, i would like to see my manager have a PLAN B..and from time to time.. a PLAN A.

Its the way Mr COOK crumbled under pressure yesterday that was EMBARRASSING

Is this the way the Arabs wanna be seen to be doing BUSINESS, after all , he's speaking for them when he comes out with his GAFFES.

A blind man could have told ya the PRESS would be looking for answers into the SACKING of MARK HUGHES, and it was totally NAIVE of Garry Cock Up to expect to be able to get away with a few unrehearsed lines on a sheet of A4.

They MEDIA sniffed BLOOD.. and oh my Garry.. well.. u may has well being hung upside down in a Butchers freezer..

I'm not gonna persecute GARRY COOK.. but im sure his BOSSES wont be best pleased with him when they see his latest offering zooming down the net to Abu Dhabi..

why the sacking of Mark Hughes was the correct decision

Dont you get it.. our owners aint prepared to wait for a season or two.. and deffo not after pumping millions into the club.. would you wait??

The CV is one thing.. the facts are another.

Garry Cook came to City city as somewhat of a sharp shoooter.. the facts are somewhat different, the way he's going he'd be lucky to get a job in Woolworths..

Mark Hughes came to City as a bright young manager due to his work at Wales and improving Blackburn on a shoestring budget, he's left now, im sure he'll be compensated.. and bounce back at a club of his level.. ie.. Bolton

Roberto Mancini has come in as our probably Number 3 choice.Gus Hiddink was never gonna come due to his Chelsea connections and Jose Mourinho has unfinished business at Inter.

The media paste a negative spin on Mancini due to the corruption in Italian football and their dislike of all things Manchester City.. This is not his fault and nor is it his undoing.

You still have to win..and you can only win and beat what is put in front of you..

I'm fairly sure we have the right man in charge on the touchline, and its up to him and his team to make sure we have the right quality on the pitch.

Mark Hughes v Roberto Mancini

MARK HUGHES WAS IN CHARGE OF WALES FOR 5YRS..HIGHLIGHT LOSING TO RUSSIA IN THE PLAY OFFS FOR FOR EURO 2004

MARK HUGHES WAS IN CHARGE OF BLACKBURN FOR 5YRS.. HIGHLIGHTS..FA CUP SEMI FINAL, UEFA CUP SEMI FINAL.

MARK HUGHES WAS IN CHARGE OF MCFC FOR 18MTHS.. HIGHLIGHTS.. TOP 10 FINISH..WITH SPEND OF £200M..CURRENT TOP 6 AND SEMI FINALS OF THE CARLING CUP.

ROBERTO MANCINI WAS MANAGER OF FIORENTINA IN 2001.. HIGHLIGHTS.. WON THE ITALIAN CUP

ROBERTO MANCINI WAS MANAGER OF LAZIO IN 2002........HIGHLIGHTS.. WON THE ITALIAN CUP IN 2004

ROBERTO MANCINI WAS MANGER OF INTER MILAN IN 2004 HIGHLIGHTS.. WON THE ITALIAN CUP IN 2005 AND 2006
2 ITALIAN SUPER CUPS IN 2005+2006.AND 3 SERIE A TITLES IN 2006,2007 AND 2008

2 GREAT PLAYERS..2 BRIGHT YOUNG MANAGERS IN THEIR RESPECTIVE LEAGUES..WITH ONE MAJOR DIFFERENCE..

ROBERTO MANCINI.. IS A PROVEN WINNER..

City press conference 21 dec

Ah, the last bastions of the 'modern world' - the press..

The British media have had it in for City for a long while, and this has been accelerated somewhat be our vast wealth.

I think we are still suffering for having Thaksin Shinawatra and Sven in charge especially with the media.

They dont like us..they dont respect us.. and whats more.. they cannot wait to see us fall..

WHY..

Because we threaten their cosy little lives and their fave little football teams, ie United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal.

In Garry Cook we have a chairman who is an accident waiting to happen.. or has it.

He makes Peter Kenyon look like Snow White.

His role in that press conference was laughable. As the press hovered for rich pickings.. he lived up to his role as the bungling executive who has little idea what football means to a club and its fans.

Its all very well sticking to the written statement Garry.. but when challenged you lose the plot, banging yer fists on the table like a frustrated schooolboy, you've lost the argument old bean, or was it not like that in Nike?

At least Mister Mancini kept his cool..he didnt look phased by the attack on his appointment,maybe he didnt understand what all the fuss was about.

After all.. they do things different in Italy..

Where form is temporary and class is most definitely permanent

Burning down the banks..err house..

Bailing out the banks.. now whose smart arse idea was this.

I didnt see the Government bailing out struggling business, or god forbid, the public that made the banks rich in the first place with their excessive charges.

No siree.

Banks like the rest of big business spunk our money, and then have the gall to ask the country to get them outta the shit, and not just this country, Ireland, Germany,France,USA, Eastern Europe,in fact nearly every country has being bailed out by its Government..

I think bankings a wonderful career path to follow dont you.

Let us kick start the economy they cried, bail out the banks and get the housing market moving again - utter tripe.. are people really, really, really that stupid.

Come on " sheeple"..follow in line.. stay in fear, watch X factor.. yer safe indoors.

But now i hear that the bank bail out could be illegal..cos Gordon Brown and his shite government may have broken International laws.

Oooh Gordon.. thats not good .. is it.. especially after you then went on to split Llloyds and the RBS..If this is now proved correct.. where now.. Trade sanctions on the UK.. Gordon.. did ya not check the rules, and you can run a fuckin country.. you couldnt run a tap!!

Where are the greedy banks gonna turn to next. Tho im sure some government underhand tactics wont see them outta pocket,after all whats the difference between the banks and the government.. not a fuckin lot.

Both promise you so much, then deliver so little, both badger ya to the ends of the earth when they want a vote, or see a big deposit in yer account, and both sell yer private details onto other dodgy business, and call it protection of data

I call it THIEVERY..

And the bleat goes on

Whether or not Ireland had the whole campaign to get to the finals is immaterial.

Ireland didnt cheat.

Henry the french captain did.

These are the facts.And while we are on the subject.

Fifa state they cannot change the rules, well its funny that they did prior to the play offs by seeding them. Its never happened before and i very much doubt it will ever happen again.

FIFA are an old dinosaur that are out of the touch with the modern game.

The majority of players will CHEAT, its a given fact. They will try and get away with what they can,the only way to curb this is by video referees.

FIFA should refer to their mandate before they start acting all high and mighty.

This wasnt a Premiership game, a Champions league tie, this was a World Cup play off, it doesnt get any bigger for a professional footballer.

Henry should be banned from the World Cup, and the French team and country should be ashamed of themselves.

FIFA AND ITS HIDDEN RULES

I find the audacity of FIFA remarkable in this day and age.

Sportsmanship they preach, Fair Play they yell, and Integrity they publish, but funnily enough, none of this is put into practice

Come on FIFA show yourselves up to not caring about the financial implications here.

Give Ireland the replay it deserves.

If your putting yourselves up as a major governing body, then you have a DUTY to be responsible to your members when they have issues.. in this case little old Ireland, remember them?

Yes they may be small in numbers, but they are very passionate and vocal sporting fans. They as a country are respected throughout the planet for FAIR PLAY and PASSION.

Yet like an old musical dinosaur.. FIFA hide behind the rule book.

This is the very same rule book that was changed to ensure that Portugal and France wouldnt be eliminated from the World Cup by bringing in a seeded play off, funnily this wasnt in place in the FIFA rules before the start of the qualifying tournament, and this has never happened before, and nor will it happen again.

After the Maradona hand of god goal in 1986. The fair play mandate was brought in.

23 years on.. little has changed. When a smaller country challenges a bigger country, it gets swatted like an annoying insect.

Thierry Henry has admitted he CHEATED.. what do FIFA do.. nothing.

The referees decision is final to ensure INTEGRITY.. that word again eh.

The fact of the matter is. FIFA is NOW tainted as a governing body. The country of France is NOW tainted as they are seen as CHEATS throughout the sporting world. The World Cup is NOW tainted as its not a fair and moral competition.

Fair Play.. yeah right..

80 million Irish men and women around the world witnessed a great miscarriage of INJUSTICE last night in Paris.

It wasnt just Thierry Henrys BLATANT handball that won the game for the under achieving French, its the manner in which FIFA have dismissed Irelands claim to a replay.

The Referees decision is FINAL.. why?

Who chooses the officials for these MAJOR games, what is the criteria in choosing an official, and in this case, someone we have never heard of before.

Surely its time now.. to select the best officials from around the planet.

One online poll suggest 87% of the french population do NOT want France to go thru to the World Cup, they dont like the manner in which their INEPT french team got thru to South Africa next summer.

This game could set a precadent.. bring in TECHNOLOGY for goodness sake. It may not change the uproar on the island of Ireland.. but at least the future will be ensured that fair play will be seen for years to come.

Tho i would hope the French FA would see " common sense" and agree to a rematch.

Its the WORLD CUP at stake here.. WORLD CUP, not euro cup, not europa cup ( Platini), the world is watching, and they all have eyes.

You cant fool all of the people.. all of the time.. maybe messrs Blatter and Platini would do well to remember this.
