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.
