Angry Fans

OUR normal host Liam Mackey has been unexpectedly called away for more pressing New Year’s Eve duties so this week we’re calling occasional substitute Allan Prosser from the bench to mediate over your angry views and decide who will win the first glittering prize of 2008.

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.

Letter of the week goes to Ken O’Leary in Abu Dhabi for devotion beyond the call of duty in scouring the Examiner website to find a report which doesn’t give Liverpool their dues. Let’s have an address Ken.

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!
