City 0 Villa 2

Time to call Record Breakers as City move into the last home game of the season needing two goals to strip Sunderland of there unwanted record of lowest home scores in the Premier League, the last home game of course against the Sky Sports Reds who should just need a point to secure (not mathematically) the two horse race (think it used to be called the title)

The reason we are looking at this record was on show in all its glory at Eastlands as a determined but limited Villa side created 3 decent chances and took two , we created two good chances and took none.

Both Johnson and Beasley were missing from previous weeks, which prompted Pearce to replace them with Ireland and Samaras. Mpenza also returned from injury. So both sides started with 3 recognised forwards Vassell, Mpenza and Samaras for city. Agbonlahor, Carew and Young for Villa. A free flowing attacking game of football to follow ? Didn't quite pan out that way with both teams effectively playing a 4-5-1 rather than 4-3-3, the pace from both wings along with the heading ability of Carew in the middle giving villa the edge in what was a pretty lacklustre end of season game . Meanwhile our 6ft 4in target man was on the right of midfield, Mpenza struggled on his own in the middle and despite an OK start Vassell faded against his normal rabbits.

And so Villa take the points we don't really move anywhere and its Manu next at home for their title party !!

Earlier in the day reports circulated the Sam Allardyce had announced he would quit Bolton and would be moving to city as part of the Ray Ranson consortium. Given that Ransons bid has been (disgracefully) blackballed by the club surely Big Fat Sam would have the men in white coats coming round as he explains why quit Bolton for a 'maybe' .

A thumping 5-0 against the rags would cheer me up a bit though !! Here come the men in white coats for me.......

vote it up!

For the younger readers - here's the full quote:-

Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to leave because I'd go berserk?? Well...

You left me anyhow and then the days got worse and worse and now you see I've gone completely out of my mind.. And..

They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa

To the funny farm. Where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be
happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!!!

You thought it was a joke and so you laughed, you laughed when I had said that losing you would make me flip my lid.. RIGHT???

I know you laughed, I heard you laugh, you laughed you laughed and
laughed and then you left, but now you know I'm utterly mad... And..

They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa,
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa.
To the happy home. With trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!

Anyone recognise this at all?
