Yeah, right.

  1. And just my artistic input for the day:

    We’re the Invisible Spacemen, baby; we’ve got speed
    We’ve got everything we need
    We’ve got Silva and Negredo baby; we can fly
    Our supersonic guys

    We’ve lost at Leicester
    We’ve lost at Meadow Lane
    But every time they knock us down we just get up again
    We’re the Invisible Spacemen, baby; all day and night
    We were here even when we were shite

    We wake up every morning with a smile upon our face
    Our Yaya, Kun and Nasri, will walk all over your place
    We’re the Invisible Spacemen, we’re incredible and mean
    Know what I mean?

    We’re the Invisible Spacemen, we’re never second to none
    It’s a lot of fun

    We sometimes let the fans down
    We always make a boob
    We’re another comic fanzine, a favourite on YouTube
    We’re the Invisible Spacemen, baby; here comes the twist….We don’t exist!
    We’re the Invisible Spacemen, baby…. we don’t exist!

    Apologies. It’s the Vino!

  2. All true Kippax, just never understand how it never seems to get reported like that.

    The fellow who wrote that needs to pop in here and take a seat at the bar.

    The Hunting Accident

  4. And from the comments section – a response from a Blue to allegations of using “Oil Monies” from an Arsenal fan:

    What a hypocrite you are. Says the supporter of the club with Usmanov as a shareholder – to who his predecessors were no doubt very happy to receive more than the odd million from for their stock – sponsored by Emirates, from the city whose financial and geographic advantages owe much to the atrocities of the British Empire, where British Petroleum has a head office – why don’t you check out the history of said company in the Middle East? – the city which I’m sure whose investment from the Middle East – including Abu Dhabi – makes what’s happening at City look like a drop in the ocean, a city which welcomes being an investment magnet for a large percentage of the world’s dirtiest money – which you only have a problem with when you’re not getting a slice of the action. Are you complaining about where some of the record TV revenue is coming from? How about human rights in China when your club invests so much time on pre-season tours trying to woo supporters and investment there? Why don’t we have a debate about why London’s property prices and wages are so out of sync with the rest of the UK?

    I have been following Manchester City since I saw my first football game as a 3 year old kid sat on my dad’s lap watching a Manchester derby on black and white TV back in the 60s. Other than a League Cup, the next 40 years would just be what it is for most (real) supporters of football clubs around the world, the enjoyment of seeing your club play, in the knowledge success would (increasingly) be little, if at all. That other clubs had more money never crossed my mind. When I was young, City were able to vie for the title. Derby, Forest, Villa, Everton, etc won them. Then that stopped happening. But I continued to support City, which brought trips to the much more decent, down to earth folk of York, Macclesfield, etc, than the self-entitled dregs of society you find on here. I didn’t say anything as suddenly it became United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, United, Arsenal, Chelsea, United, Chelsea, United, United.

    United had more money than Chelsea. Chelsea had more money than Arsenal. Arsenal had more money than Liverpool. Villa had more money than West Brom…..Huddersfield had more money than Macclesfield, etc. I didn’t say anything as we passed Wigan and Fulham waving at us with big smiles as we took their places in the lower echelons. All the while, all across Europe success and wealth was becoming more and more polarised in the greedy clutches of the usual suspects, with the gap between them and everybody else getting exponentially wider. But I continued following my team, content to just be back in the big time, though I still enjoyed the football in the lower divisions. Then one day the market forces that the football aristocracy had insisted should be allowed to prevail attracted one of the world’s richest men to my club. Horse Racing can cream in millions of Middle Eastern investment, our F1 teams can debauch themselves at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, our football players can buy properties there, The Queen can dine with the Saudi royal family to help our arms industry to continue to make god knows how much money, I’m sure quite a few Arsenal supporting stock traders can lead a lifestyle that most can only dream of with a bit of inside knowledge of aforesaid deals. But will they allow one of the country’s poorest areas have a taste of the champagne? Give me the supporters of York, Macclesfield et al over the ugliness most articles on this site are aimed at anyday. Give me the criticised investment Daniel Taylor has described here over the lauded financial opportunism, pillage and asset stripping we’ve seen at other clubs anyday. The real question that should be asked, that never is, is, “Why has it cost Manchester City so much money to catch up with the elite?” The evidence is clear, fewer clubs are winning honours in the PL era, and most of the clubs that have bucked the trend have required generous benefactors. And this trend is being replicated all through the football world. Let’s not let these modern day Louis XlVs kill our game any further.

  5. Some good clips in there Blooders, there was a couple of nice points that flashed by also Grin

  6. Just saw Gollum on MotD, the quicker the Rags sack him the better.

    For Gollum that is, he looks like he is on the way to a heart attack, not seen someone looking that unwell that wasn’t surrounded by four planks of pine for a long time.

    Full time, 2-0 to City U-18s.vs. Rags

    That’s 13 wins in a row for Wilcox’s lads. City U-21s also beat United U-21s the other day and City U-16s won today aswell against them.

    Between the U-18, EDS and first team, City haven’t lost in 39 games.

    So what is your name over in the trainer shop then ?

    There’s a jet plane in the air tonight, a Star so bright , Fernando.
    Playing football just like poetry, for Man City , Fernando.
    He was told that City never lose, he’s no regrets.
    He’ll be happy at the Etihad, that can’t be bad Fernando.

    If only there was a tune to put it to !

    Excellent Bellers. What a pity it seems all for nought. Bloody Porto No

  10. Wouldn’t it be brilliant if it was a negoiating ploy.
    “I’ve just told the plane to turn around, you are asking too much and don’t seem prepared to negotiate”
    Half and hour later, phone rings.
    “Hello, yes, yes, that’s much more reasonable. I’ll turn the plane around again and write you a cheque”

  11. That was a waste of time…BBC now saying that plane is not due to land at Manchester.
    Hijacked by Chelsea ?

  13. Valers, I was just about to post exactly the same thought! How good is this Fernie geezer any road? I’m not up to speed on his CV.
