Troy, Jumps Out of the Pram

O come on Mr Deeny,  stop sobbing and get on with life,  if you can honestly say that in your career you have not taken a easy tumble to give your side an advantage, then I believe you may be telling porkies.   As for all the other "woe is us, everybody is against us" bleating.

While generally having a good laugh at our expense. A short while later, this one and only Paul Lambert left our club to [...]

Just when City's old troubles start [...]

Some are never happy

Leaving Carrow Road yesterday must have been a pleasing experience, 4 goals, hat trick from a striker getting his confidence back, a clean sheet, despite losing a defender after 20 minutes, and then a peach of a free kick to finish the game.

Celtic Eye Hoolahan

Celtic are reported to be close to making a deadline day offer for City's Wes Hoolahan, they sent scouts to St Andrews to watch the playmaker.  Hoolahan started the game but was substituted in the 89th minute by former Celtic striker Gary Hooper.
