This week contributors are vexed over Sven’s defensive display at the City of Manchester Stadium; the failings of Liverpool to make up points in the title race; future of Fabio Capello; the loyalty or otherwise of Dimitar Berbatov; impending meltdown at Newcastle; Shay Given’s neat trick with a water bottle; the lunacy of the transfer window; January transfer targets and if tackling is worse than it used to be.
IT WAS with utter amazement that I read the Manchester City v Liverpool match report on the Examiner website. I don't know who wrote it but the guy or girl is deluded. The report maintains that it would have been a travesty if City lost!
When a team lying in fifth place in the league sets their stall out for a 0-0 draw at home, they deserve to be beaten! The only difference between the actual score and a 5-0 drubbing was the fact that the City keeper and Richard Dunne did everything but turn water into wine!
Also, I think Uriah Rennie proved why he has been reffing outside the Premier League for so long, given his turning a blind eye to the City centre halves kicking the bejasus out of Torres for the entire game. Go back to Hull, Rennie!
