Nah, it seems more like you are saying Huddlestone got away with it so Balotelli should too.

And again... Eh?

Not at all, it's certainly not the intention to make it sound that way. My opinion is he was lucky to stay on and it would be fair if he did get done. But also pointing out that others have got away with it so he might too.

Edit: If I'm stating an opinion like that ( x got away with it so y should too ) I'm usually far more direct.

Ballotelli has been charged by the FA, unfortunately Lescott hasn't.

I hope City accept the ban, even though it means him missing the Liverpool game.

That would at least show some degree of respect for the game so I hope you are right.

Personally, think the FA would have a much stronger case in the Lescott incident but there you go [ nothing at all to do with, based on the 1st leg, Lesccott missing would benefit Liverpool more ]

Mario will have to take it on the chin and move on. I'm with Rob and that I don't want City to appeal.

Big result for City at the weekend and moves United & City further away from from the chasing pack, well Spurs to be fair. Could have gone either way up until Mario slotted in the pen.

City should have shut up shop when they were 2-0 up and brought on Nedum (to be fair I'd have him ahead of Savic on current form).

2 games coming up in Liverpool over the next week and I think that City will/could struggle in both. I just hope that the Liverpool who played Bolton turn up later this week

I'll just be repeating Rob and CitySmith, City need to accept it and move on, saying that I can't see us appealing it anyways. We just need to think of it as a break and hope he comes back fit and ready to go.

With Tevez hopefully packing his bags for the departure lounge (I'll drive him there myself). Another striker in the ranks would be

The old saying goes that those teams wanting to win the Premiership should have 4 strikers to use over the season.

Tevez has counted himself out of the running so if he goes the money City recieve from him should/could be wisely spent on another guy who knows where the back of the onion bag is

Except the Tevez wage and any fee is still over and above what you can actually afford...........and round and round we go

Adebayor burnt his bridges at City there was no going back. Rocky was what seemed a decent bloke but a bad, bad Hughes buy.

As for the ability to afford it d2000s We're loaded!!!! We got taken over by this Arab dude a few years back and he's 'investing heavily' in the squad. You may have heard about it it was mentioned on page 37 of the Sun at the time under the cricket scores for the day

To be honest I thought it was a young 'Arry with smaller 'chops'

This is by no means confirmed but it would be an amazing move.
