After a busy day at work I come on this site and find the huge debate about City. I take the point about Pep throwing his toys out of the prom but let me ask you this, how many top Managers lose with dignity? Not many I can think of and it’s the nature of being a winner. However, the irony of them having a man sent off due to a dangerous challenge is delicious.

As for Aguero, I can’t believe some of the views I am seeing. If reports are true, that he was abused and spat on then I think he was pretty controlled. The bigger issue is that fans running on the pitch is dangerous: how long before a player gets seriously injured? We have had players punched and abused, how long before a knife appears. I think invading a pitch should be a serious legal offence. There was issue in an Australian cricket test years ago and a player got badly hurt trying to tackle a fan. After that the Aussie authorities made entering a field of play a pretty serious offence and guess what? It stopped.

Many football fans are boozed up idiots who think they can do and say what they want; the abuse players get nowadays is unacceptable. If a player has the temerity to give it back they howl with anger and demand action. If I was Aguero I would have punched that fans lights out and if Aguero had done, I would have applauded him.

Totally agree. It won’t be long till clubs start doing breath tests on how drunk some fans are.

And you would have got a ban for it. I have no doubt you are right that the fan was probably a horrible piece of work however players don’t operate in the same stratosphere as the rest of us on any level and so they can’t be seen to react like that. And certainly it can’t be seen as one rule for one but not another.
Re Pep it’s not his reaction that gets to me but the fact that it highlights how much of a media darling he’s been made so far whenin fact he’s like any other manager, just not vilified yet. he will be as that’s how you sell column
Inches you build someone up and up so you can knock them down further over a longer period and sell more off the back of it. It will happen just depends on how long. Klopp as well. The tabloid press is calculated and ruthless. Ask Jose.

20 Feb 2018 21:15:18
Robbie, that’s a good point about Pep, he is certainty the media darling isn’t he? I get the point abut players but why should they have to put up with abuse, why has it become acceptable?

Ajh i agree on the bad loser thing. Fergie jose wenger all have done worse in the tunnel. I was more annoyed with the ref. He should have sent him to the stand for the offence. Now any manager can say or do what they like to refs in the tunnel and point to double standards if they are sent off themselves.
On aguero i think he should have been banned for a couple of games there is no place for his actions not withstanding the provocation. The supporter should be banned for life.
No evidence of any spit in the coverage and god knows what he said nevertheless its not the way to behave.
I go to Ireland rugby matches regularly and what a difference in the atmosphere. Opposition fans sit alongside each other. Same at gaa cricket and many other sorts. But the yob mentality and aggression at football matches is appalling. I couldn't agree more. Its disgusting at times. Rugby players brawl with each other on the pitch often but on the couple of occasions a player hit a fan they were banned for 18 months. Aguero didn't hurt the guy or connect but tried to wanted to and would have if he wasnt stopped, that warrented a ban imo.
But the fa have ignored it so its a mute point.
Would they have ignored it if it was vinny jones barton clough or julian dicks? I doubt it.

Good to see you're back working again, Tony.

20 Feb 2018 22:44:58
Pep has always been a bad loser it was Jose remember who made him quit at Barcelona ☹☹.

20 Feb 2018 23:03:46
All the media saying City are still on for THE treble. Surely, it should be A treble, considering the FA Cup is one of the top 3 trophies.

21 Feb 2018 06:27:52
Come on Arsenal. If they can do City in the League Cup then good as they have been this talk of a quadruple / treble will stop. Wigan showed that they are beatable and most noticeable of all, they stopped City scoring.

AJH, being Aussie, I’m not sure of the incident you speak of but if you have a spare couple of minutes, hop on YouTube and search “Andrew Symonds smashes streaker”.

21 Feb 2018 09:50:20
Darv, If I google someone ''smashes streaker'', I'm going to get a whole lot of video's that will land me in hot water with the wife.

21 Feb 2018 10:48:17
Haha ports, as I said, go to you tube, not red tube.

21 Feb 2018 11:01:09
its only celtic who are in with a chance of a quadruple stevie, the domestic treble and the europa league lol.

21 Feb 2018 11:12:56
Domestic treble in Scotland, James? Sure that's like me beating my 3 year old nephew at tennis 😁.

{Ed007's Note - How can you slag any league after Leicester won the English Pub League, Stevie? My nan whose been dead 20 years would finish top scorer in the tinpot EPL that includes dross like Burnley and Huddersfield.}

21 Feb 2018 11:30:17
I'd fancy Burnley to beat Celtic.

{Ed007's Note - Man City couldn't do it last year and they were unbeaten in the Pub League when we played them and just because Utd drew with Burnley and scraped a 1-0 win doesn't mean Burnley are a good team. How much Scottish football do you watch?}

21 Feb 2018 13:26:28
Just seeing if you were about today, Bond 😉.

{Ed007's Note - Are you checking up on me officer? ;)

21 Feb 2018 15:26:41
Yes, Bond. Using a police computer to check your details as we speak. Sure I'm just another corrupt officer in the occupied 6 counties, didn't you know 😁.

{Ed007's Note - I didn't know you were a peeler until yesterday - it came as quite a shock mate because you seem kind of... well... normal :)

21 Feb 2018 16:23:43
I get told all the time i don't look like one. I take it as a compliment 😁.
