Re Pogba, thousands of city fans give huge sigh of relief,


I do not believe, even for one micro-fraction of a nanosecond, that City would entertain the idea of approaching Paul Pogba. It is either a puff of smoke blown out by his publicity people or, just as likely, it is yet another fake news story put around by our loathsome fake news media. It has no basis in truth, I am confident of that…..

Mr ten Haag has a good plan. Sign up Ronaldo until he is at least 55. Maybe longer……?


Honestly, the Rags are beginning to remind me of City more than twenty years ago, when we were still everybody’s favourite bunch of lovable and hapless losers. Back then, George Weah deigned to grace our pitch with his august presence, and we were all thrilled to bits that he chose us for his final football meal ticket.


How times have changed. For United, as well as for City.

I understand what your saying , but Ronaldo even at 37 is a different beast to what weah was , he’s as fit as some players ten years younger and if it wasn’t for him and his eighteen goals Utd would have been a bigger laughing stock than they are now , I wish the other players would have had his passion this season, but as I’ve said before I hope city win the title only because the alternative is Liverpool Winning it , however if city do slip up this week then as bad as Utd are and as good as city are they’ll have both have won sweet FA

Ronaldo is doing what he is being paid to do,  I can't say the same for some of the other players and they should be doing more if they hope to keep their best goal scorer.


Blaming the Glazers won't cut it,  they have given successive managers money and support,  it's the players who need to improve and justify their high salaries.


Mourinho, when asked why he couldn't do at Spurs what he did with Chelsea replied 'different players' - says it all imo.

At least the Reds will have something to smile about very shortly. City will stumble to a draw against Aston Villa. Remember you heard it here first…….

Make no mistake Steve Utd fans certainly won’t be smiling if city blow the title , the alternative is Liverpool winning it ,if that happens we will have to endure the endurable. :(

Yes, you’re probably right, of course. But I have such an ominous feeling about Sunday afternoon. We are in the same position we have been in before, where the final game is an absolute must-win. For some reason I can envision a two goal deficit, and City fighting back for a drawer that will avail us nothing. Hope I’m wrong…..

Apparently, Fernandinho took Pep by surprise by announcing his departure some weeks ago. The club wanted him to stay on for another season, even at his current age. It will be a shame to see him go.

As excuses go, this one really is pretty unimpressive, isn’t it?
