    gotta hate – 1987. nice one mate.

    Off topic – I see the massive club had a great result again today. A last minute equaliser against Barnsley!


    @ King Eric.

    Alright mate.

    City may be a massive club but to be fair, Barnsley are probably one of the top three greatest clubs in World Football.

    I told you – Hughes will be OBC.

    During the 1997–98 season barnsley knocked manchester united out of the fa cup i believe
    and manchester united have some list of Honours


    Premier League:[80] 11
    1992–93, 1993–94, 1995–96, 1996–97, 1998–99, 1999–2000, 2000–01, 2002–03, 2006–07, 2007–08, 2008–09
    First Division:[80] 7
    1907–08, 1910–11, 1951–52, 1955–56, 1956–57, 1964–65, 1966–67
    Second Division:[80] 2
    1935–36, 1974–75

    FA Cup: 11
    1909, 1948, 1963, 1977, 1983, 1985, 1990, 1994, 1996, 1999, 2004
    League Cup: 3
    1992, 2006, 2009
    FA Charity/Community Shield: 17 (13 outright, 4 shared)
    1908, 1911, 1952, 1956, 1957, 1965*, 1967*, 1977*, 1983, 1990*, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 2003, 2007, 2008 (* joint holders)

    European Cup/UEFA Champions League: 3
    1968, 1999, 2008
    UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup: 1
    UEFA Super Cup: 1

    Intercontinental Cup: 1
    FIFA Club World Cup: 1

    Doubles and Trebles
    League and FA Cup: 3
    1994, 1996, 1999 (as part of The Treble)
    League and League Cup: 1
    European Double (League and European Cup): 2
    1999 (as part of The Treble), 2008
    “The Treble” (League, FA Cup and European Cup): 1
    Especially short competitions such as the Charity/Community Shield, Intercontinental Cup, FIFA Club World Cup or Super Cup are not generally considered to contribute towards a Double or Treble.

    The only major honour that Manchester United has never won is the UEFA Cup,[81] although they reached the quarter-finals in 1984–85 and the semi-finals of the competition’s precursor tournament, the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, in 1964–65.[82][83]
    and Barnsley beat them so city are an equal to the team that are greater than united airgo city>united

    gotta hate – ha ha you do amuse me mate! The funny thing is you are probably not far off the mark.

  7. King Eric says:

    Read Carefully – Evening mate. Yeah if the massive’s even get a couple of bad results on the bounce the fickle cunts will be calling for his head. I just can’t believe Sparky is their manager. As someone said earlier, I too used to love the bloke. Was watching Premiership years 92/93 and 93/94 earlier and some of the goals even from those seasons bring back some right memories. Best memory though is the goals against Barca in the Cup Winners Cup 1991. Anyway I am looking forward to the comedy that Citeh will bring next season.


    @King Eric – I used to love Sparky too.
    Believe it or not he had a minor car crash years ago with my priest Father Cahill in Sale (All Saints) when he bumped into him in his 911(Sparkys Porsche not the priest lol) The Priest forgave him then but I cannot forgive him now – he is responsible for the Tevez posters for sure. He would have definitely been asked to give the final green light – and he gave it.
    No class.
    The GHTT arguement would be hilarious if it wasnt actually true – they have a logic that could only be considered “twisted” if someone actually straightened it out a bit first. Hughes will be out by Christmas because he has not bought a team but a load of troublemakers – Robinho, Adebayor, Tevez – all accidents waiting to happen especially the first two. Robinho will be off to Rio by December ” family problems” and Hughes will be fired and replaced. If you were the owner and you intended on buying only the very best money can buy then would Mark Hughes be the Special One? I am not suggesting Mourinho would come but never rule that out – although I do think Fergie wants Jose to replace him despite all the valid points against that made again and again on this forum of geniuses.
    City remind me of that soap opera Eldorado – everyone new it was doomed from the start, it cost a shed load of money and was made up of a cast of talentless foreigners.
    Massive club. Massive joke. Massive fucking chip on their shoulder.

  9. aig alex is god says:

    read carefully what i said .agree with your prediction mate.robinho has aldready voiced his discontent at elano being sold.toure was injured in todays friendly.tevez slipping in bathroom.adebayor needs his hand scre frm 4 yards.micah richards is shit and richard dunne is prolifìc at scring own goals.shows how poor shitty are

  10. King Eric says:

    READ CAREFULLY WHAT I SAID – ha ha. Love the parallels you draw with Eldorado!

  11. King Eric says:

    Off topic – Just been on the “A kick in the grass” blog. I have never seen anything so negative.


    @KiNG Eric – If you remember Eldorado you are showing your age like me mate !

    @AIG – The writing is on the wall mate. It is going to be fascinating to see City do the usual, predictable off to a flyer then after about half a dozen games they start losing regularly and disappearing into the bottom half same as always.

    ….and King Eric, I wouldnt be surprised to see Marcus Tandy ending up as City Manager LOL.
