    Man City - Choking?

    Banned
    In a thread that will very possibly come back and bite me on the ****, I just want to have a quick laugh at the mercenaries at Man City spectacularly choking at the 'money end' of the season!

    HA!!

    Then go comment on another thread then??

    All teams go through a slump. At long last, this is possibly Man City's turn.
    The season is far from over.

    Every team in the Premiership is a mercenary to one degree or another - they all get obscene amounts of cash to spend.

    A mercenary[1] is a person who takes part in an armed conflict, who is not a national or a party to the conflict, and is "motivated to take part in the hostilities essentially by the desire for private gain and, in fact, is promised, by or on behalf of a party to the conflict, material compensation substantially in excess of that promised or paid to combatants of similar ranks and functions in the armed forces of that Party".

    come home Jose.

    Arghsenal!

    Remarkably, just like other words, there are other definitions ...

    You used the word in the same context I did in your OP, which is rather dumb.

    What are you going on about?

    Are you unable to relate to why this definition may be applicable to city players? Especially the bit relating to not caring about the cause only the personal gain?

    SAF can open a nice bottle of plonk tonight I think, all but done now.

    Strange that we haven't seen any of the regular city fans in here for a while.

    Looks like they disappear just as quick as they appear!

    Wish sir Alex would

    I totally get it, hence why I likened them to just about every other club, if not all, in the league - its all about the money.

    You didn't use the correct definition however.

    Like Rooney? He handed in a transfer request and only withdrew it after getting a contract which funnily enough paid him more money. Anyway, who cares if a player joins a club for money - most people of working age can sympathise with that perspective especially when you factor in the shorter career of a footballer.

    Back to the original point, they're definitely struggling although Sunderland have been one of the toughest teams around since O'Neill took over and United still have to play them. I think the title is a long way from decided.

    Mancini and Balotelli are done at City. If you can't win the league in this season with that squad then you've got no chance.

    I kinda feel sorry for Mancini, but he's only got himself to blame playing someone he even admits can't be trusted. I expect Parker and a few of the others that animal has synically fouled will be LOL.

    Scholes has got to be player of the season too. Without him United don't win it in my opinion.

    i think mancini deserves another season at least. 2nd isnt too bad while building a new squad, especially against fergie
    plus he's a nice chap
    i like balotelli for being weird and the headlines, but he is definitely overated. mancini just needs to prune the idiots and mercenaries. he has some good guys there

    This season was wide open and Mancini had the best squad in the league but he couldn't win the title. That's enough to lose your job nowadays and rightly so.

    I've always said mancini will be gone if we end the season with nothing, which is looking likely barring the biggest miracle in footballing history.

    On a brighter note, its great to see the spuds blowing their champions league place. X)
