Story of the day

I loved this:

TWO Manchester City fans donned yellow jackets and mixed with security staff on the touchline during a match at Ewood Park.

But Blackburn magistrates heard the two gave themselves away when they started cheering and celebrating when their team scored.

Aaron Peter Eadsworth, 19, of Glebelands Road, Manchester, and Michael John Wilson, 19, of Church Lane, Sale, pleaded guilty to going onto the area adjacent to the playing area.

Eadsforth was fined £120 with £95 costs, and Wilson was fined £100 with £95 costs.

Robin Phoenix, defending, said once inside the stadium the two had thought it would be a “wheeze” to put on yellow jackets and go into an area they knew they shouldn’t have been in.

“When their team scored they were jumping up and down and waving their arms,” said Mr Phoenix.

What a great start to the season for the Citizen. The only sad thing was about last Saturday's game was that they could not turn the many opputurnity they had into goals. They should have easily won the game. Overall I believe they are heading in the right direction.

I was happy to see Carlos TEVEZ being named in the starting line up as I'm huge fan of Argentina. For my money, he will make a better partner with Emanuel ADEBAYOR. That was just a classy pass for Ade to score. I'm sure we will see more of that in many months to come.

Perhaps, it will be nice to hear on your thoughts about Carlitos playing Manchester City. For your information, you guys too have a lot fan of our blog.
