So now we know, typical City IS still alive and well, it's just not the same typical City that we remember. Playing for the full 95 minutes is the new typical City. Never giving up is the new typical City. Scoring vital goals in injury time is the new typical City and breaking your rivals' hearts is the new typical City. I felt so sorry for Lescott as he and Kompany have been immesnse this season but all's well that ends well, even Balotelli and Dzeko contributed. Five minutes of injury time - just like 1999, spooky or what in fact the only person who is probably pissed off at this moment in time is Paul Dickov who has seen Aguero surpass his heroics. Earlier in the week there was a posting from a QPR fan who said that he hoped Rangers were safe and that with the game delicately poised at 0-0, Onuha side footed into his own net to give City the title. At that point the Rangers fans would unfurl a banner stating "That ones for you Asley Young you diving twat" It didn't quite work out that way but from kick off after City's third goal, the Rangers player just hoofed the ball to Joe Hart and the Rangers fans were aplauding.
Manchester City Champions, I Like!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For sweet enjoyment, listen to this - from minute 14-31, including Cheesy's commentary at the death and a splendidly bitter Terry Christian proving what a complete wanker he is: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01hlmls/Stephen_Nolan_13_05_2012/
Now that's the way to win it. Match of the Day was fantastic, did you see the look on Phil Jones & Fergusbums faces? How funny was that? If the rags are in any doubt that everyone hates them, then listen to the cheer that came from the Sunderland fans when they heard that we had scored, lovely.I had a quick run around on the pitch after the final whistle, brilliant.The Charity Shield is not going to be held at Wembley in August (something to do with the olympics).
Wonderful comments above and a totally unforgettable incredible experience. I am so pleased QPR stayed up as they performed heroically. I just hope they show the door to that odious twat Barton, who even had me riled before the match when saying he'd be more worried if they were playing United. I am just glad Marion hadn't already been introduced before the sending off as he'd probably have been the target rather than Aguero. Extremely proud.
Funny how QPR wanted us to win the title, but Sunderland wanted United to blow it.You only had to listen to Terry Christian to understand why.
Funnily enough, most rags I've spoken to seem to have taken things with a good amount of grace, a sort of "fair do's" approach. I was having a celebratory pint or 4 in my local when 3 came in in AIG tops, spotted my Ethiad one and came over. Uh oh, I thought, for them to say congrats and offer a handshake, to say I was surprised is an understatement. Even Fergie was quite benevolent, but couldn't help but mention 5 minutes of injury time. With Barton and subs, I was expecting more like 7 a la OT 3 seasons ago, strange he forgot that!Watched the Skyplus match and presentation twice ( off work this week, just in case ), and still find it hard to believe it really happened. Can't wait for the 100 special KOTK next issue and I don't envy Dave's email inbox which must be creaking under the strain! The forecasted crap weather for tonight's celebrations seems to be not happening, finger's crossed.
Can anyone believe the fuss over the RIP Fergie banner? In bad taste if he had pegged out maybe, but I'm pretty sure the old codger is still going strong. To paraphrase how the man might react himself " Dearie, Dearie, Me".
