There you go...it's our fault we are out.
Heres a message to PeP ...CHANGE your fuckign attitude towards DERBY matches, you out of touch cunt!!!
This is why I cant stand this person...cant stand him !!
Fans have a right to emotional wobblers. If the season hinged on last night or Sat night spew your guts, Me it's shite but very positive going forward. I'm going to Spurs and yes we could be beat with another ref howler, so what, another meltdown. It's football and City will be Champions soon enough. Pep was like a fan at Half time last night and I was proud as fuck he gave it the cunt of a ref and his team of tossers. Pep showed me all I want from a manager and with great football. It was not to be.
I can understand those that can't warm to him as he doesn't say what they would like to hear from him.
He is a Barca man at heart but I think he is treating the crowd the same way as he treated the squad.
I think there is a vicious circle here. The fans don't like UEFA and think the CL is a corrupt money spinning machine for them.
Our owners who have invested so much and given us a quality squad, a quality manager, quality facilities etc., want to win it and demand success.
UEFA don't like us, because their money spinning clubs don't want us taking their slice of the pie and we also show contempt for them, which puts the spotlight on their corruption. So there is no way in hell are they letting us anyway near a final while we insist on booing their anthem.
They just do not want that publicity airing globally on their biggest days of the year.
Whether Pep knew this was the way of things before he left the cozy environs of Barca or Bayern, I don't know, but you sure as hell know he knows now.
So back to his treatment of the fans. He shipped out what he considered bad influences to his philosophy and shut up the likes of Yaya and his agent.
He is telling the fans that if you want to dine at the top table you will have to play the game. We are not getting there with any manager never mind him, as long as we show up UEFA.
This keeps the rest of the G14 clubs happy and they continue to get away with murder. (See Liverpool last week)
Now this is by no means a lecture to those that want to keep booing. Do so by all means. Manchester people are quite stubborn when it comes to right and wrong. If you think you are right (and let's face it, you are) and you think this is the way to express it, then do so.
However, my view is that we have a fabulous manager ho has an improving team playing fabulous football and he has a brief to win this competition.
He is telling us it's not going to happen this way. The crowd need to play their part.
So we have an impasse. The team have had to change. They are still suffering though from the injustices of external influences. Our crowd says f@ck everyone else, we're right. we're not changing our stance. The team get further f@cked on the field.
Now you can still throw in weird formations and team selections that seemingly throw games, by Pep, but I think we are going no further regardless
of who we have while this impasse is there.
Much as i'd love to just win th PL every year, i'm affraid it's not going to cut the mustard with the Sheik.
Thsi isn't a rant at anyone by the way,just an opinion.
