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..
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
