All Over Bar the Fat Lady………

All Over Bar the Fat Lady………

Unless Mark Hughes can pull of a miracle with his Queens Park Rangers side visiting Manchester City next week for the final fixture of the season, we`re going to end this season without a trophy.

Sir Alex Ferguson all but threw the towel in with his comments after the win over Swansea yesterday and seemed to be looking for some kind of intervention when he implied,

"It could be like Devon Loch. Stranger things happen in football."

"We just have to keep going with the right spirit. We`ve won the title three times on the last day and we don`t mind doing it again."

"City are red-hot favourites and will try to make sure they win the match, but QPR need a point and they`re fighting for survival."

Devon Loch, for the uninitiated was a horse that was romping home in the Grand National only to inexplicably collapse to the ground in a heap.

But looking for further assistance, Sir Alex appears to be looking towards an ex-United hero, Mark Hughes to do him a huge favour, remarking,

"Mark knows his job all right."

"He was sacked by City in a very unethical way and he`ll remember that."

Now that would be a turn-up for the books but being a realist I can`t see it. To me it really is all over bar the Fat Lady singing.

You're probably right Redboy, but once again, we've both still got 90 minutes to play, and as we all know, ANYTHING could happen. Hopefully it will go according to the script, but hey, we might have 4 sent off and Wes Brown might manage 10 OG's for you you know!

We were the Devon Loch however our collapse wasn't inexplicable, the players got complacent and thought it was won whilst Fergie got sloppy tactically. I can't see City taking anything for granted, getting complacent and thinking its won prematurely, they'll stay focused and will see off the QPR challenge something we failed to do. Oh well there's always next season and no doubt this will be a learning experience for everyone at the club, Fergie included. Hopefully so anyway....

all over folks, QPR are *****e and City will thrash them!

Seriously hope a miracle happens. City's title victory will signal a grave day in football, and a tragedy for any lover of the game. Man City's investments in the last few years, like those at Chelsea, have come not from the culmination of success and endeavour, but an influx of wealth that undermines the integrity of competition. Their rivals Man United have built success over the last one hundred years, building and growing organically, with each victory contributing to the next generation, weaving a stronger thread year on year into the complex tapestry of their success. Moraliy aside, their ascent have stripped burgeoning clubs of their talent (at Arsenal and Villa, for example) and has directly caused transfer fee and wage inflation, leaving English football in dire financial debt. They have significantly contributed to a sharp decline in football; the bubble has yet to burst, but soon the unruly debt of the EPL will drown clubs as the industry collapses in on itself. Their disrespectful, frivolous use of money may have instigated the death of competition as we know it. I wrote an extended article on this subject actually, if anyone is interested, at

alexkeble - very nice of you to go brown-nosing the rags with your little diatribe. Clearly preaching to the converted on here "Oh Ciddy are wuining football, football is dead". Utter nonsense. The day football died was the day Yoonited dropped the words "Football Club" from their name and became a PLC. Your unfounded arguments and histrionic assertions that everything bad can be laid at the feet of Manchester City is specious at best, completely disingenuous at worst. I notice two things: 1) You have a picture of Wayne Rugney scoring the "shin of fraud" goal against us - that's rather strange for a Villa fan, and 2) I notice you haven't been brave enough to post a link to your tripe on Vital City. Cowardly, and full of *****. Not still bitter about Stephen Ireland are you? XD

Whats so unfounded in his arguements Mr.FCB,the simple fact is U have a sugar daddy who is just buying u a title whereas there are clubs like Utd,Arsenal buying young players developing them and turning them into stars and still remain competitive.Yes we have bought big players as well but as u know it there is a difference between having a sugar daddy and generating funds from within!!!!!

I would also take far more pleasure in seeing us develop players like cleverley,welbeck,rafael,smalling,jones,evans,than go and buy players for silly money and pay silly wages.Sure it takes time and sometimes it can get frustrating but the end rewards are priceless.The only sad thing is some silly fans from our side seem to be accepting whatever the media seems to be feeding them!!!!!

Antkrish, what was the difference in the cost of both starting XIs on Sunday? A whopping £1 million mate. City have young players they are developing too, Hart and Richards are a couple of success stories so far. Savic and Balotelli are young players too. There's also plenty in the academy that will be ready to step up in the next couple of seasons following the huge investment that has been made in this area too. Pull your head out of your arse.

You had the 1992 generation - Scholes, Giggs, Beckham, the N. Viles, etc., but there has not been a great deal to shout about from your much vaunted academy since then. You paid stupid money for the likes of Jones, Anderson, De Gea, so the idea that you are somehow being frugal and developing youngsters on the cheap just doesn't wash. And for a team that's midfield 3 for the derby had a combined age of 105 to talk about "Youth" is rather risable. Your best youngsters are deserting you - Pogba to Juventus, Chavel Morrison to West Ham, and Oliver Gill to University!) Sorry folks, you might believe the propaganda spewed out by your manager and the sycophants in the media, but the evidence would suggest it's all lies. Oh, and can anyone please explain what happened to the likes of Ljajic, Tosic and Obertan? Oh yeah, they weren't good enough. City used to rely on our youngsters when we had no other choice - looks as though you will be doing so for the foreseeable future, and aside from the likes of Welbeck and Cleverly who look pretty good, there aren't more than a handful of academy players at your club who will ever make the grade.
