Bitters Graceless Even In Victory

Bitters Graceless Even In Victory

So how do the fans of a big club react when their team is 2-1 up in a cup semi-final? Well, this time we can only talk about how City fans reacted: they were as graceless and pathetic as ever.

As the game approached its conclusion, City fans tried to help their team not by cheering them on and singing but by not giving the ball back to our players at throw-ins and then one of their mindless idiots hurled a lighter at Patrice Evra - video replays clearly indicate that he was hit by the lighter that was thrown from the stands.

Will City get a punishment for it? Unlikely, if you consider how happy Mike Dean was to help them at every opportunity tonight. Don't think his paymasters will feel any differently.

City bitter, just listen to yourself! And no mention of the objects thrown towards Tevez from your lot after he scored the penalty. The propaganda wing at Old Trafford is certainly in overdrive tonight.

I never thought people would be so passionate about the Carling Cup because that's all that is at stake and people need to remember that.

Threw a chair at the City fans and on the pitch well before this event. Barged down the barrier at the end of the game and attacked some kids. Back up your evidence and you might have a point. Unfortunately when you fail to acknowledge a football match you miss a lot. Coin thrown at Tevez at Old Toilet??? Pot Kettle

You're right, in truth no one would really care if it wasnt city; if we dont win the league this year, I wont give a toss whether we got to the carling cup final or not. All I'm gonna say is it doesnt matter how much injury time we get next week, how many city penalties are waved away or if any of our goals are offside. Any dubious decisions that go in our favour at Old Trafford will be entirely justified.

You forgot to talk about the childishness and stupidity of your team's beloved skipper Gary Neville to point the finger, and coin thrown at Tevez like taggarts nose mentioned above. Very clearly you are a "double standard" man.

We are in a pretty good position as I said before,we should win our game at Old Trafford and if we don't then we don't deserve to be in the final its as simple as that.I fancy a 3-1 in our favour.

Hopefully brown will take rafael's position on the right which will give valencia full freedom to bomb forward as I just felt that after the penalty was conceded,valencia's aim was to provide cover to rafael and not let him be exposed and as Tuscan said with a partner for Rooney,he will be doubly dangerous.
