    Right?
    Why wouldn't I be?

    The sort of person who suspects Jews are in control of everything isn't going to have that idea undermined by seeing alleged anti-semetic gestures punished more severely than any other form of racist behaviour are they? It'll simply re-affirm their suspicions.

    Basically, I'm saying the FA look to me like they're being rail-roaded into an inappropriately punitive response which serve to confirm any anti-semetic views that already exist, and maybe add to them.

    Also, shouting 'yiddo' is little different to shouting COYS to most Spurs fans, so another great job there in stamping on it.

    How is an "antisemitic gesture" which is possibly open to interpretation because of cultural  issues different to a "racist term" which is possibly open to interpretation because of cultural issues? Anelka should get the same punishment as Suarez did.

    FIFA 14 is anti-Semetic. I have called my pro player 'Jewsbury' since 2011 and it was one of the options for the commentary name. Now it's not allowed, and even typing 'Jew' in the game gives you ***.

    Madness.

    Ridiculous. Jewsbury is just a popular flavour of Israeli jam. Nothing offensive about jam.

    Apart from robertson's I suppose.

    Well to play devils advocate making a general gesture seems very different to directly racially abusing an opponent.

    Anelka will probably just get the three games but deserves a couple more.

    It will be someone completely random. When the mrs worked for ITN, I knew this irish journalist who I didnt think knew much about football but if you were out with him, he would vanish off every now and then to use the phone.

    Turned out he was the Premier League mouthpiece for some random australian radio station.

    It was so odd.

    Taken its time but looks like Zaha on loan this week. Really hope we don't sign Ravel though after scouts watched him last night :S.

    So Sunderland are facing some competition as the home for Man Utd rejects?
  • Deleted user 22 January 2014 12:35:05
    Fair play to Mancini coming out and pointing out he bought all the players that are currently doing so well at City.

    It's true, he doesn't get enough credit for using his infinite funds to buy all the best and obvious available players from around Europe. That took real skill and vision. All credit is due.

    Of course, him raising this point does beg the question why another manager is doing so much better with those players than he was able to do, but no, that's not the real issue here. A great manager buys players. It's not about what you do with them.

    Hats of to you Mancini.

    Greatest scout in european football. Quite the accolade.

    But, yeah, its true. You wouldnt have seen a mancini side with such a comfortable lead stick three past west ham yesterday.

    Yeah I thought that article was a bit bizarre.

    The media do seem a bit blinkered to the average football fans view of Man City and their infinite funds.
  • Deleted user 22 January 2014 12:40:23
    It's not like he even unearthed any gems or anything.

    He basically did exactly the same thing we all do when we play as City in FM. Go to the list of players, arrange the list so it's in order of expensiveness, and make bids for all the ones who are unsettled, near the end of their contract or obviously at clubs too small for them.

    He was very astute in the transfer market, it has to be said. To take on relatively unknown and unproven players such as Aguero, Dzeko, Yaya Toure, Nasri and David Silva not to mention all the players he signed just so other teams couldn't was an incredible gamble. To see them all playing so well now is a testament to the genius of Roberto Mancini.

    The Man Utd rejects don't even need to leave to get a game anymore.

    Not one of those players was " unknown".

    Don't forget Rodwell. He was a real diamond in the rough.

    What's that? Career stalled you say?

    Oh.

    So obviously I'm well jealous of Utd getting Mata, but does it strike anyone else that he really isn't whaf they're missing at the moment?
