West Brom home and at last a lovely hot Spring day. Blues were a bit down hearted after Thursday night, but the boys soon went into a two goal lead, Robinho on the score sheet at last and we even scored a headed goal from a corner. Well done Ned (the head!) . Then we went to sleep, and it was a ‘Desmond’ in no time. Elano showed how to take a penalty again and Dan S sealed it at the end, but no celebrations, what’s happening there then?
Sunday was also the second semi and how funny was that? Moyes doing a Fergie, putting pressure on manurefriley who spotted Wellbeck’s dive in the box, and then we had that penalty shoot out. Fergie out and Berbatov should never kick a ball for ‘em ever again! Glad we hiked his price up.
Alan Nixon in the manumirror couldn’t resist a dig at us though - “Somehow City’s ‘triumph’ in moving ahead of such world powers as Stoke City and Wigan Athletic into tenth place…..” Why does our club entertain this paper and its reporters who if met by any Blue would surely be given short shrift?
Anyway, good luck to Jim and the boys tonight as the Youth team try and overcome the 1-2 deficit v Arsenal at the Emirates. Tall order but you never know, and it’s a rest for our first team squad this week before taking on Everton who play Chelsea tonight, on Saturday. Oh and enjoy the rag bitterness which has amused us thus far this week.
