Thursday it was Bryan Robson’s turn in the muen to have a pop again telling us to stick to our principles. What the f*ck does he or any united person know about principles?
Yesterday was a busy one – dropped the Us and Them books off at Kitbag in Chadderton, picked KK196 up from the printers, dropped some off at Aleef in town, then got most of the subscriptions into the postboxes in Leigh and Culcheth (which are big enough to take A4 envelopes) in between singing Day after Day, Heart of Gold and You Got it on karaoke!
Fergie’s coming out with some vintage selective rag memory shite, also threatening us with Keano - have you ever met Andy Morrison boys!!!. No wonder everyone hates them.
He conveniently forgets that Wigan had a player sent off v rags, later rescinded. Rags won 5-0 but what score would it have been if the player had stayed on?
Newcastle’s penalty? What about the free kick that wasn’t from which the rags scored?
Fulham’s non penalty? Now am I missing something here and Sky have contributed to this but aren’t we talking about non decisions at O/T instead of the penalties the rags have been awarded? Don’t forget that West Brom were denied a nailed on pen recently.
As for City and the Balotelli non sending off it’s never been proven as a stamp, nevertheless that could have lost us 2 points, but check out all the other games previously listed in KK – united Lg and FA Cup, Bayern, Fulham, Liverpool (Lg and Lg Cup, Chelsea, West Brom, Sunderland, Wigan, Everton, Swansea, Stoke – where decisions have not gone our way – as Cityblue pointed out there’s a lot of evening up to do between now and the end of the season.
Anyway Sunderland today, here the it’s A Fix extract from KK 196 : GAME 31) SATURDAY MARCH 31ST SUNDERLAND (HOME) KO 3PM
Promoted in 2007, so this is their 5th season in the Prem. (this time!) Last Pot F A Cup 1973. Most recent connections : Martin O’Neill, Wayne Bridge, Niall Quinn, Marlon Fulop. 122nd league meeting.
This season so far at the SOL on New Years Day it was that excruciating last minute 1-0 loss after battering them all game. Dong –Won scored the offside goal in front of 40,625 with 2101 Blues in a reduced allocation.
Currently they’re in 8th place with 40 points from 30 games and 4 wins 3 draws and 8 losses away from home.
In the Carling Cup they went out 1-0 at Brighton in the 2nd round aet.
In the FA Cup they beat Peterborough away 2-0 in the 3rd round, Middlesboro in the 4th 1-1 home then 2-1 away in the replay, Arsenal 2-0 in the 5th at home and Everton away in the 6th a 1-1 draw with the replay just played which they lost 2-0. Personally I was hoping they’d get to Wembley (twice!)
At home to Sunderland At COMS last April it was a 5-0 City win, goals coming thick and fast from Johnson (9),Tevez (15pen), Silva (63), Vieira (67), and Ya-Ya (73) Crowd was 44,197 with 1896 Mackems. Which made it seven wins out of the last seven.
Comment : As we found out to our cost in January, Martin O’Neill has inspired a massive recovery and they’re no longer the pushovers of the rag manager flops Keane and Bruce. Other Fergie flops are O’Shea, Campbell and brown. Let’s hope the cup replay has taken it out of them. No Aguero though and time for the others to step up.
WTWTWShite : Avd 13,601 in 86/87, and this season their average home att. is 38,689.
