Well I can't keep making fun of Steve McLaren's accent as it appears he really can't help it! So what about his hair, Tufty welcome back! How did those road safety films work out?
And so to the game...it was exciting, open and full of mistakes, an amazing goal from Bobbie and an amazing miss from one of their players right at the death - summary over let's get back to Tufty McLaren...
More seriously our 'run' in europe will almost definetly be the deciding factor in Bobbie staying or joining Fat Phil at Chelski. Since signing for City, Bob's sacked his agent and more worringly Big Fat Phil has sounded off at every opportunity that he wants him at Chelsea. Chelsea will qualify for next season's Champions League and the only things you can see that will keep the godlike one at Eastlands are: City qualifying for Champions League - unlikely to say the least, winning silverware - possible, but still unlikely, team bonding into one big family - at this point extremely unlikely. So it would be only the unadulterated adulation afforded to the godlike by the masses that might tempt him to stay, which is the most likely of all, and if he scores some more goals of the quality of that one last night he will enter the collective imagination of the blue side of Manchester as a God.
I'm still not happy with the way the team is playing, but Hell Boy is making the right noises...(see above video)
