Stoke and what a contrast weatherwise from last season but the same result unfortunately and another 2 points lost. Particularly galling was the Stoke fans booing Silva who went down with a head injury after a forearm smash from Whitehead. Hope the player gets a retrospective ban (SWP and Adebayor both got retro bans after games at Stoke) – but doubtful as per Huth in the Cup final. So we went behind to a freak goal “the ball never touched the ground from the goalie’s kick” they said on MOTD – well it IS Stoke! They also thought that Barry should’ve given away a penalty but no witch hunt re the smash on Silva. Hmm. Tevez came on and a bloke on our row walked out as did Ena on Wednesday. Understandable but what if we all walked? They had a goal disallowed near the end, and Roberto didn’t shake hands with Pulis. Why?
The rags beat Fulham 1-0 who were denied a blatant penalty in injury time by Ashington (Bobbee Charlton) born referee Michael Oliver. It’s only a wonder Fulham finished with eleven men. Rio drivel Ferdinand apparently reckons it made up for Newcastle’s pen at O/T months ago. According to Toon fanzine ‘The Mag’ the rags that day scored from a free kick that never was and it wasn’t shown over and over on MOTD.
So the cheats go 3 points clear and there is obviously an agenda for the rags to win the title again this year so it’s going to be very difficult for us especially with the non decisions we still get.
Anyway we are pleased to announce that King Of the Kippax fanzine number 196, should hit the outlet at Aleef (Corner of Cross Street/Market Street) on Friday March 23rd and the selling points around the Etihad at the Sunderland and subsequent games. On the same day we’re delivering the ‘Us and Them’ book to Kitbag in Chadderton, so hopefully they’ll get it in the City shops before the end of the season for your holiday reading.
KK196 is a 48 page A4 issue with a front cover showing Rio Ferdinand spouting his usual drivel about City fans being glory hunters plus a suitable caption (from Neil Shaw).

It sells at just £2.50 (unbeatable value) and can also be purchased for £3.50 (inc P & P) from King Of The Kippax, 25, Holdenbrook Close, Leigh, Lancs, WN 7 2HL.
Today it’s 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 know or anu united person know about principles?
