?? what article is that?
I have seen this one on BlueMoon and alledgedly from the Daily Mail
From The Mail:
TRAINING GROUND BUST UP COULD COST CITY BIG
Hanging on by a thread in all four competitions and about to slip off the proverbial ledge has proven too much for the players brought in for millions of pounds and under intense scrutiny and pressure to succeed. The Mail has learned that Samir Nasri and Costel Pantilimon had to be separated by armed security guards and teammates after a training ground disagreement turned ugly. This came on the heels of another near bust-up involving the frustrated Joleon Lescott, a player who has been on the outside looking in for months, who apparently attacked both Joe Hart and Pantilimon (with well placed headers) mid-drill! It seems that out of his depth manager Manuel Pellegrini is clueless when it comes tostopping the discord between his overpriced and overworked stars. He was sighted blowing a whistle on the sideline, seemingly egging his players on as they brutally attacked each other, rather than jumping in to try to separate them. Even the normally mild mannered James Milner became involved in the fracas, launching and expletive-laden diatribe against Pantilimon as teammates struggled to pull them apart. All of these problems of course, come in the aftermath of a right thwacking at the hands of the ever-resplendent Barca, who recently benefitted from City's naivete and inexperience, handing them a decisive 2-0 loss which of course should have been 3 or 4 nill. And unlike the hard done by Arsenal who fought valiantly in the face of insurmountable odds, City seemingly rolled over to a superior force once again, which explains why tensions are high around Carrington. Whether these problems will lead to massive goings out or comings in at the next transfer window remains to be seen, but suffice it to say that Pellegrini and the boys in blue are on the rocks, and this report from the training grounds proves it.
Their sense of humour it seems.
