One Game or Bust Syndrome?

One Game or Bust Syndrome?

Many supporters are anticipating that the trip to the Etihad Stadium will be a defining fixture.

They expect that fixture to determine the destination of the title.

But will it really be like that?

The media have eased some quotes about that very fact and our centre back, Rio Ferdinand, has offered the following comments when asked if the title will be decided in late April when we cross to the blue part of the City, remarking,

"Who knows? We`ll have to wait and see. In an ideal world, we`ll have it sewn up by the time we go there."

"But I don`t expect it to be finished by the time we go to their stadium."

"Every game is a cup final now. Every result now is going to sway the title this way or that. If we win the games that we`ve got left, we win the league. But it`s not as easy as that."

Looks as though the pressure is starting to get to Slur. Not a great time for him to have a meltdown is it?> PMSL!

You can smell the fear in Camel Gob's ramblings.

seems the fear is spreading, 1st Slur Taggart, now Wio, and even Bryan 'i can buy you a football club'' Robson, has had a go, all this from a comment by a World Cup Winning Captain, Patrick what have you said? which when all said and done PV was correct, it was desperation in bringing Scholes back, who was next out of Retirement Booby Charlton?

Bringing the countries best Central Midfielder back who can still do it at the highest level for nothing rather than paying 30 mil for a player who can do a similar job is desperate? Sounds like common sense to me. Now bringing back Tevez, that's desperate. This talk of desperation reminds me of when we signed Owen on a free, which the blue sides fans heavily criticised, only for them to then go and sign Hargreaves on a free, which unsurprisingly wasn't criticised by them. Hypocrites doesn't quite do them justice, then again we're all hypocrites. Put simply there's an equal amount of pressure on both sides, not one or the other. With every game we win we pile pressure on them to keep up, with every game they win they put pressure on us to stay on top. Neither side will admit the pressure, they're just looking to pile it on the other team.

Towing the party line eh Famous? ;)

best central midfielder he MAY have been, in the 90's and early 00's, but NOT now, at 37, there are better players out there who are younger and Hungrier than Scholes, , Charlie Adam is just as good as Scholes,as he cant tackle either, but can spread passes like Scholes used to do, just to name but 1, but then he plays for Liverpool and you lot wont admit to him being a good player will you? Gerrard is another, Silva another one too,so there is 3 players who are younger and Better than Scholes NOW, even Parker is as good as, if not better, need i go on? but you are right pressure is building and it's who can handle it the most, and not all this boloney about History, as that is something that can be made, not living on past glories..... may the best team win, and you know it plays in Blue.....

Bringing your reserve team coach out of retirement because you can't afford to strengthen is desperate, I know it, you know it and Slur knows it, why else do you think he reacted to Vieira's comments? He's rattled. The difference with T***z is that City tried to get rid, they couldn't so for pragmatic reasons he was introduced back into the fold, having come back with his tail between his legs.
24/03/2012 14:55:00
If it wins us the title again who care who we bring back . I do believe the pressure is on City though and they could be 3 pointrs adrift or more going in to the derby
24/03/2012 20:33:00
You still doing the whole 'you've got no money you can't strengthen' thing Bluedub, I thought we silenced that when we stretched a small chunk of our financial profit on De Gea, Jones and Young. As for Tevez having his tail between his legs you are joking? His had a nice holiday and is back merely to advertise himself a bit before leaving in the Summer. Do you seriously think the fines you imposed even scratched his financial security enough to make him come grovelling back? Have a laugh, he's just treating you as a stepping stone to move on to the next transfer pay package.
24/03/2012 21:32:00
Did he come back and apologise? Yes or no? I know full well why he's here and I also know full well why City are using him, it's in both best interests because we couldn't move him on in January. TF7 you really need to educate on U*d's finances, as long as the Glazers are robbing your club blind the investment needed to reach your targets will just not be there.
