Tony P and Lobby

Hi Tony, interesting to note that 'Lobby' whoever he/she is (i thought it was a sort of hot pot) thinks you sell KK on Joe Mercer way.
If it's true, well your sales are shite my friend and you must do better!
Personal criticism from someone who hides behind a non de plume has no place on the KK blog. Show yourself boy/girl and maybe then we can take you seriously.
The win was wonderful yesterday, but we can't carry on playing with ten men (Dzeko) though I don't think there's much between MD and Lescott. Good to see Pants get a game in a big one. No ones picked up on the quick long kick to Serge which ultimately led to second goal .
Lots of games coming up so whilst disappointing for Joe, Joleon and Jimmy M to miss out yesterday their chances will come over the next few weeks.
Still feeling euphoric

  1. Quality moment at the start of the BBC highlights when Guy Mowbray alluded to the abuse that Demichaelis was receiving at the Etihad,. His next comment was
    “Zabaletta. Of course he can do no wrong in most City fans eyes”
    Personally I thought some of our untouchables were poor yesterday, but what a great ploy by Silva and Yaya to botch up the set piece in the build-up to our brilliant first goal. It summed up the day in the old Typical City tradition.
    Can I also be the first to record that City looked twice as solid once the much maligned Garcia entered the arena.

    1. Neil - agreed. For once I was glad to see Garcia take to the pitch. Once he came on our ball retention was much better.

  2. Some interesting comments on the previous thread - not really what I was expecting at all, but that's part of the thrill of being a City fan! I both concur with most of what was said and differ on some others. Should we celebrate this achievement? Absolutely and never tire or become complacent about such occasions, we're living in wondrous times and we've waited long enough for them. Should ultimately lifting a trophy cause us to turn a blind eye to some of our weaknesses? Certainly not. To be honest, following the disappointment of last year's FA Cup final and the fact that the players have not played in mid-week, I was expecting a full on performance from start to finish a la West Ham/Spurs/Rags - I hoped we had learned the lessons of Norwich (away) and Stoke (home) and move the ball quickly, but alas, no and it did ultimately take two wonder strikes to get us on top. Like some of you, therefore, I still have some niggling little doubts about our form at this crucial time and some of the team selections. Will I ever be satisfied? NOT A CHANCE! Not unless we are good enough to win the Premiership, the Champions League, the FA Cup and the Capitol One Cup all in one season. I will though enjoy ever victory along the way.

    I also agree about comment about the ref. He let that pub team performer Bardsley get away with some dangerous stuff yesterday and 'brave' Sunderland's 'great' performance was due in no small part to the fact that a number of their players were allowed to continually kick, push and pull our players without punishment for the whole match, thus stifling our superior ability on the ball.

    Man of the match for me (by a long way) - Kolorov.

    2. My apologies for the poor grammar. My pc responds to this blog fine, my phone not so much...

  3. One of the wonderful things about being a city fan is I tend to think we as Citizens subconsciously are always expecting the other shoe to drop. I'm not making excuses but suffice to say I've not always agreed with everyone's opinion re: all things City bit I can safely say that Tony has always been respectful not only to me but everyone who posts here, whether they be City fans or not. I also like to think that Tony like a true City fan is a romantic, which in turn makes us purists. I think it's important that we don't lose perspective of the dross days of Pearce, and the culture of laziness that came about under Sven. We as fans are always going to second guess mangers, tactics, and players, which is fine by me. But let's make sure we don't lose perspective. Not only about how good we as City fans have in terms of resources, but our long cherished self-effacing humor as well. Like the late great comedian Bill Hicks said, if lost your sense of humour, you've lost all perspective.

  4. Firstly, thank you for your kind words pjdmers. With regards to Lobby, I don't think he was being particularly offensive to me, he just wants me to stop moaning and enjoy a trophy and he may be right. I certainly don't want to offend him or anyone else. We all have an opinion and sometimes that can vary. My original point was tat had it not been for two pieces of magic within 90 seconds, that game was going the way of last years' Cup Final. I can think of Ageuro's shot turned round the post, a miscue from Nasri and a shot from Silva as all we had to muster prior to those goals. Yes, let's celebrate, but let's also recognise that we could easily have seen our season fall apart had it not been for Messrs Tourre and Nasri's intervention. With regards sales of KK, I do my best but despite shouting Kiiiikippax at the top of my voice, people jut keep telling me to take off that silly mask - cheeky buggars!
