    League One play-off Semi-Final Games

    Very best of luck to Sunderland in the play offs. I really hope the Mackems can go up.

    Eberechi Eze

    Not one of our players but I enjoy watching Palace's Eberechi Eze. Learned today that he has suffered a serious achilles tendon injury that will keep him out for the rest of the year. I hope the lad makes a full recovery. One of those players with skill, pace and intelligence who has worked his...

    Sheffield Wednesday thread 20/21

    Big win for Wednesday tonight at Bournemouth. So pleased for all my Wednesdayite mates. Wednesday were the better team in the 1st half but Bournemouth hit back after a daft foul by Sam Hutchinson gifted the home side a pen. It seemed like it would be draw with the Wednesday under the cosh but...

    Racist abuse of footballers

    If you've ever faced racist abuse it hurts, even though you want to ignore it. I speak from experience, and it's difficult to describe. If anything, though, it makes you stronger and more ready to deal with it. Marcus Rashford is the latest Black footballer to be racially abused. I'm sick and...

    Reading FC

    I don't like Reading Football Club and I don't know why. It's not because they beat us 3-0 in that abhorrent 97-98 season of relegation to Division 3, or because they beat us 2-0 at the Etihad in their first Premier League spell. I don't dislike them because I got a bit marf off one of their...

    Succession to greatness

    I'm trying not to do this but I see City now and I look back at what we are missing. We've been blessed in the past by great players like David Silva, Yaya Toure, Pablo Zabaleta and Vincent Kompany. Last season we really missed Vincent Kompany - a once in a lifetime leader, captain and central...

    First game....

    Forty years ago today, on 1st November 1980, was my first visit to Maine Road. My parents were newly separated and Dad was looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon. I liked football but had been more into cricket so didn't have a team of my own as such, even at 15. City were bottom of...

    Gordon Cowans

    Sad to learn that ex-Villa, midfielder Gordon Cowans has been diagnosed with early stages of Alzheimers Disease. He was a top class player who was a member of a Aston Villa's 1980-81 title and 1981-82 European Champions Cup winners side. A quiet, understated man, he was an intelligent, top class...

    Derby and Forest new bosses

    Derby and Forest both appoint new managers in one day, and two good managers too. Who'd have thought? Especially when they both play each other next weekend. I wish them both well - two famous old clubs with a great deal to live up to - I've got mates who support them, and living fairly close to...

    Boycott The Independent and The I

    Boycott The Independent Until recently, I used to get the Independent every day. I even bought the first edition back in 1986 in the week that City drew 1-1 with United at home - Mick McCarthy heading City's equaliser and the late Tony Grealish adding much needed bite in midfield. Now that The...

    Dame Tanni-Grey Thompson praises Manchester City

    Turned on Radio 5Live and they were talking about Scudamore and his emails. One of the people they interviewed was Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson who, to paraphrase was non-committal about whether he should be sacked or not (she'd want to read and hear more about it) but talked about the more...

    That is embarrassing

    I saw one of the most pathetic sights ever at football on Saturday as everyone was leaving the ground. The sight of a middle aged bloke, wearing a Chelsea polo shirt (yes Chelsea , not Hull Tigers) in the home section next to the segregation, staring smuggly at the City fans with an inane grin...

    Songs we CAN sing next season

    With friends like these....

    The media coverage in the build up to Swamp derby was truly appalling and biased. The papers, the BBC, SKY Talkdribble were all slanting their stories to criticise City and laud United. Only Henry Winter of the Torygraph . Laughably Radio 5Live Breakfast had Kit Symons put up as the so-called...

    Everything is our fault!

    Saw this and laughed my head off. Lazy journalism, or is everyting our fault! Enjoy! <a class="postlink" href="http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/386486/Manchester-City-s-Ricoh-rumpus" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football ...

    Brede, take a bow...

    I don't know if you noticed this but I want to give credit to the sportsmanship and humanity shown by Fulham’s Brede Hangeland during the game last Saturday. Carlos Tevez played and inviting through ball towards the by-line for Pablo Zabaleta to chase onto and both he and Fulham’s brede...

    John ###in Motson

    John Motson on last night's Monday Night Club was getting digs in at City, in particular Vincent Kompany, saying ""he's got previous" and "he's been sent off before". Unfairly in the Derby last season, you biased twat, Motson. He then went on to talk about Peter Coates the Stoke owner saying...
