I'm going to break with blog protocol and admit upfront that this whole post is based entirely on hearsay, speculation, opinion and MoTD highlights watched at 2 o'clock this morning.
So we won, thanks mainly to another display of what a fit RVP can bring to a game. His quality, aggression and vision created all 3 goals for Adebayor, Nasri and Bendtner. I particulalrly liked Nasri's goal - good pas from deep into RvP's feet, quick swivel onto his left peg from his improving chocolate leg, delayed ball out to Nasri on the left corner of the box, one touch, knocked back across the keeper into the bottom corner. There were shades of Vieire, Pires and Henry in there.
As expected Hull put up a fight, but on a day when Utd & Chelsea won it at the death against "weak" opposition, and Martin O'Neill's deal with the devil bought Villa some more luck, I don't think there is any disgrace in a well-gought 3-1 win.
It seems Eboue again offered very little out wide. Methinks Arshavin could slot in there nicely? Or we see if City want to spunk £100m on Fabregas stick Nasri in the middle, the Russian on the left, Theo on the right and let slip the dogs of war on the Prem.
On the Russian, there are more nises that an Usminov brokere deal will complete this week - so I guess we owe the fat Russian pig-man a modicum of gratitude. He's still an odious creature though. Kaka may still or still not be coming to help City win the Championship - good luck to them all. In this day and age what the world really wants to do is watch rich people pissing there money up the wall, then feel grateful to be allowed to drink from the piss-puddle as it trickles into the sewer.
That's it really. Two points of note for the day - 1.) we have hit the woodwork 12 times this season, more than any other team. If they had gone in, I wonder where we would be in the table? 2.) Either way it would certainly be higher than the Spuds - who ARE BOTTOM OF THE PREM. Harry Redknapp can kiss my arse.
