City: Small Club, With A Small Mentality

City: Small Club, With A Small Mentality

OK, the 'poster row' reached the point where it's no longer funny, only tiresome. City are enjoying their time in the limelight and entertain ideas above their stature but we all know it will come crashing down soon, nobody more so than Sir Alex Ferguson.

'It's City isn't it? They are a small club, with a small mentality.

'All they can talk about is Manchester United, that's all they've done and they can't get away from it.

'They think taking Tevez away from Manchester United is a triumph. It is poor stuff. I thought he would go to City a long time ago.


We all knew he would and hopefully even the most hardcore Tevez fans - I can understand them as I had loved the guy - realise that he's good riddance. He's found his level - at a small club, with a small mentality. When was it they last won a thing? Fortunately the counter at Old Trafford tells us the exact date, for nobody could remember it otherwise...

For a small club, you do pay a hell of a lot of attention to them, don't you?

It looks me to me like they're trying their best to get our attention with that Tevez poster. They fail to realise that they may have all the money in the world but they're behind us in EVERY other department!

Your manager says it is small time for them to mock utd, whereas Utd allow a clock denoting how long it has been since City won something. Double standards and that isn't even touching on the small club statement that ws 'beyond the pale' when Rafa said it. Typical Utd, give it but can't take it. City are coming out of this laughing whereas your fanbase and your 'mind game genius' of a manager is making himself look more foolish than anyone outside the club could ever do.

I personally don't believe that what's happening at city will work...don't get me wrong i think hughes is a very good coach...I think they're buying good players that could cause any team in the world trouble...but I think it will take them sometime to gel.....also they never addressed their medfield....they have a very ppor one....i mean common who is irelan...he is a star medfield...not by any means.....so unless they fix their middle of the park as well as left wing i don't see how they can compete to top four...but assuming they gel fast enough they should definetly be in europe this season...and that would set the platform for them to buy even better players to challenge for the title....but again i don't believe its their year ...not yet....

What's your problem with our clock poster. According to you lot its not even in Manchester anyway! As for small club, compared to Everton Cit-eh are small. 33 years without a trophy, 18 years since a cup final. Everton don't have those stats.

Since success appears to be your barometer of size, you agree that Liverpool are bigger than Man Utd then?
