Ah I remember it well, the first game at the c.o.m.s, and the cheer Ronaldinho got from us blues was brilliant, but why was he given such a good reception?. Still got the programme in my wardrobe. That was a brilliant barca team.

He'd just turned down a move to the rags.

Why are people saying we need 4 5 1. Valencia were all over Barcelona like a rash when they beat them with 2 up.

Also meant to add. Will all blues lucky enough to be there, please give that twat Alves plenty 'o' shite.

I think Yaya is pretty much a striker when he's played further forward. Just better at retaining possession than Dzeko or Jovetic and that could be vital.

vicks mate should sort it

To be fair mate it was a bit of odd thing to say, it's the kind of put down that Rags try all the time, I am not sure you thought it through before posting it


Thing is i did think it through, that is why i posted.

Was trying to show the past and the future in a sentence, even ran it by the boss in doors like, thought i was looking forward.

anyway, Jovetic will score

Historically most of our squad would like to play for Barcelona, but the more forward thinking players are happy to play for City.
Apologies, just never know where those vermin are lurking.

Don't like the comments about Caicedo and Castillo. We were a different club and needed to take risks.
