I heard Thaskin's government apperently shot drug dealers in a massive crackdown.

Apparently this is one of the human rights violations this group are on about. 

I would say it was an effective anti-crime policy.

Definitely a zero tolerance approach. Wonder if it'll work with regards to Samaras?

The other accusation was that he was a bit rough in dealing with an insurgency by some extremist Islamic seperatists in southern Thailand.

Been having a little look at Bojinov. Powerful, pacy, confident, and scores some wicked goals!

I think him and Bianchi could do the biz given the chance.

I wonder of there are any more signings in the pipeline. I feel he will see how this lot does, and if after a couple of games he still needs a player or two he will decide then.

We seem to have bought in some quality, and mixed youth with experience. Elano, Giovanni, Bianchi, Bojinov, and Petrov all come with a decent record to say the least. And the likes of Fernandes, Garrido, and who we have already in Ireland, Onuoha, Miller and Sturridge makes it a nice blend in theory.

Come on Blues!!!!!

There is only Vassell worth anything. And that is debatable sometimes. I'd bin Dabo as he is fucking useless. And Dickov, although I love the moaning little fucker, has had his day sometome ago now and should be let go. Danny Mills is on far too much money - believe it is about £30,000 a week! - and Matthew Mills never made the impact some expected. Feel a bit sorry for young Kasper, but perhaps under sven the club is pushing forward a little bit too quick for him at the minute. And with Andreasson and Joe Hart, as well as whoever else comes in, first team berths are gonna be limited. I hope he gets a good club and does well.

If anyone is interested, you can get City to win the Prem with a 40 point head start at 15-1 at Dones bookies.
We got 43 points last season, and i fully expect/hope to be pushing 60 points - minimum of 50 - this season. 90 points will most definately win you the league so it is worth a punt.
I've had £50 on it anyway! We wait and see!

Also, I would like to see Samaras stay. It looks like we would not make a decent return on him if he was sold, so why not see what Sven can do with the lad? He obviously has talent, so lets see if a change of manager does anything for him. We've paid through the nose so why not work on him?

You don't happen to have a link to that bet on their website, by any chance. Seems like a decent punt.

Did I get justice when I was told we'd bought a world class striker and got Georgi Samaras?

Did I get justice when Anelka was replaced with Dickov?

Did I get justice when Clough, McGoldrick, Walsh all turned up at once?

No man, I got fuck all justice, fuck all I tell you!

It looks like our goalkeeping worries are over after we signed the highly-experienced and world-renowned goalie...Richard Martin? A 19 year-old who Brighton released last year. Well at least we didn't pay £12m for Scott Carson.

So what did you folks make of Sven and our boys on Saturday?! Hammer swerent up to much, but the shock of Sven deviating from a 4-4-2 nearly had me choking on my dinner! From teh highlights I saw, we looked quite tasty, Kasper looked a bit shaky but with Dunne and Micah there we have one hell of a central defensive partnership. Onuha looked all business when he came on and done fantastically for Geo's goal. Great to see Hamman start, interesting to hear what he said on MOTD too, cant believe how he got so little game time last season. Elano is all hustle and bustle and has an eye for the spectacular and Bianchi looks like a poacher. All in all, I'm quite happy with our opening days work!

Interesting piece from the beeb

I was amazed at how good some of the football we played was- Elano could be one the signings of the season, as could Petrov if they continue like this. Including Schmeichel we had six players with no Premiership experience starting the game, and not a single one of them seemed to struggle at all. Garrido could be a great left-back,  Corluka made some great tackles in the first half and got forward well too, though he struggled for pace a bit against Etherington.

It was great to see the academy youngsters playing well too- Richards was absolutely immense next to Dunne, Johnson and Ireland looked good in midfield. Hamann shocked me the most though, compared to how he played last year, he was like a new player- roaming in front of the back four, breaking up West 'am's attacks, setting up our own counter-attacks, he was brilliant.

Compared the last away game I went to, where I sat and watched us lose 4-1 to fucking Wigan, this was a huge improvement!

So, our first home game of the season, our second win of the season, and most importantly, our first home goal since God knows when.

Sat in the East Stand, I watched a pretty scrappy affair, but on the balance of things, we deserved the win.
There wasn't really a player on the park who I honestly thought looked out of place - the academy boys acquitted themselves remarkably well again - Michael Johnson's goal was just lovely, Micah didn't look to put a foot (or a header) wrong all night, Stephen Ireland worked his socks off and young Kasper seemed more self-assured with every minute that passed.
Petrov never stopped running and coped extremely well with some unbelievable provocation (Craig Fagan take a bow. You know what you did and we saw you, even if the ref didn't.)
Garrido looked comfortable at left back.
To also see flashes of proper Brazilian class from both Elano and Geovanni (especially) was something else.
Geovanni - the fella is quick. He can keep the ball. Stepovers, little dummies and shimmies from him, at City of all places? Was I dreaming? No, not at all.

It was a solid performance, nothing special, but Sven started with the same XI as he did on Saturday and it will obviously take a bit more time for this team to gel but all in all, encouraging times. (Can't believe I'm actually saying that but it's true....)
I'd give City 6, maybe 7 out of 10 for this performance but when all's said and done, a win is a win and we scored at home.

Did indeed look like a low elbow to Petrov's nuts**. Fagan obviously knew exactly what he was upto, and a few minutes later, Petrov gave away a foul when he deliberately tripped Mister Fagan. It was needless retaliation and he was lucky he didn't get a booking for it (although he did get booked in the second half.)

**Could have been a tickle as Rinc said, if someone tried to tickle my nuts I would probably react like that as well.

Another 3 points on the road to the title, thats all. Just 3 points from the type of home game we should be expecting to win.

Next!

I'm a bit disappointed how we always seem to struggle against sides at the bottom of the table, but 3 points are what's important.

Christ almighty that was about as nerve-wracking a game as I can ever remember watching!!!

United had most of the possession but we had Kasper, Dunney and Micah who were all rock-solid for us. Hamann yet again had a fantastic game, he seemed to get stronger as the game went on.

Another clean sheet, another win, this team still has to gel properly and there's a long way to go this season......
