Much bollocks in the press, and from Mourinho (again) trying to compare YaYa’s flick to Bellamy’s run and punch. Ridiculous, and you can now see why Jose was so detested in Italy and Spain.
Sunderland next, here’s the It’s A Fix extract from KK 212:
26) WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 12TH : SUNDERLAND HOME 7.45PM
Promoted in 2007, so this is their 6th season in the Prem. (this time!) Last Pot F A Cup 1973. Most recent connection : Adam Johnson. 126th league meeting.
Some celeb fans: Steve Cram, Kate Adie, Bryan Ferry, Brian Marwood, Peter O’Toole, Sugar Ray Leonard, James Bolam, Heather Mills, Tasmin Archer, Paul Collingwood
This season so far : They’re in 17th place with 24 points from 25 games and 3 wins 4 draws and 5 losses away from home.
In the Capital One Cup they beat MK Dons 4-2 in the 2nd rd, Peterborugh 2-0 in the 3rd rd, Saints 2-1 in the 4th rd , and Chelsea 2-1 in the 5th rd, plus united 2-1 in the semi first leg, all at home. They won the second leg on pens at the Swamp to reach the final. How funny was that!
In the FA Cup they beat Carlisle 3-1 at home in the 3rd rd and beat Kidderminster at home in the 4th rd.
At the SOL in November we contrived to lose 1-0 for the 4th time in a row!
Bad boy and ex rag shithouse Bardsley got the goal after Milner was fouled in the 21st minute. Crowd was 40,137 with 2,501 Blues tucked away in the top tier behind the goal, since then City have been unbeaten.
Form at home to Sunderland Last season it was a 3-0 City win, goals coming from Kolarov (5), Aguero (60) and Milner (89).
Crowd was 47,036 with 1722 Mackems, which made it 8 wins and a draw out of the last nine.
For City : WDWWWWWWL
Comment : Gus Poyet has got them going, and they’re climbing up the league, though they lost at home to Hull last Saturday! Bit of a bogy team away, but not at home so a win is expected. It’s a rehearsal for the Capital One Cup Final, but we had one before the FA Cup final last year v Wigan and learnt nowt, so hopefully a lesson will be learned this time!
Let’s bounce back please.
WTWTWShite : Avd 13,601 in 86/87, and this season their average home att. is 41,239.
Oh and Chelsea drew at West Brom!
