comment on the article

Manchester City - the new team everybody loves to hate?
They get one new Samba star, a whole load of oil money, struggle against minnows in the Eufa Cup and...beat Portsmouth 6-0?
Yes, you better believe it, Manchester City are the team everyone has their eyes on (and it was Chelsea v.s Manchester United today!). Not only are they playing great football, they are scoring goals for fun and winning games.
A one off?
Surely not, considering the emphatic nature of this victory. Jo is beginning to shake off fears that his transfer fee was heavily inflated. Shaun Wright Phillips has returned to his old City form, and possibly most importantly, they have possibly the best Samba trickster there is in Robinho!
Have fun Manchester City fans, but you can bet that nobody else is.

I like the way Harry Redknapp is criticising his defence when he was the one that signed players like Sylvain Distin ironically from us. I thought we just outplayed Pompey yesterday and fair play to their fans they cheered for their team through the whole match if only Harry would follow their example.

Man City are good but they are no Arsenal when it comes to pure football. They have a long way to go before that happens. Even Chelsea cannot match the playing style of Arsenal and they have expensive signings.
Keep dreaming City fans. Its just a one off.

you are obviously a biased munich who is jealous of city's recent investment. And i think it is united that are something like...500 million in debt, also your shirt sponsor AIG nearly went bust the other week so i think united fans need to worry about the financial side of THEIR club and not city. If you united fans respect city then they might consider giving you some loose change (100m)for some players

Asa lifelong City fan living in Cambridge and watches around 10 a season I am basking in this new found pride. Don't you just love it that our team is the centre of attraction. I just want to say a big thank you to Shinawatra for without him finding our genie where would we be? This could be the season when we score more goals than any other side, only this time a prize will be waiting for us at the end. I'm loving it.

Ireland has always been class. He needs a tough manager that doesn't mollcoddle him. He had that in Pearce and now with Hughes. Only under that soft touch Sven did things slip.
