Manchester City

COME ON CITY!!!!What a superb result and typical City just when things look hopeless they confound us with a battling performance such as witnessed on Saturday.I happily eat my words (for a game anyway)regarding Dickov,the wee man gave everything and well with that attitude he inspired everyone in City,s colors.Now lets build on this and try to get a run together something weve been unable to do since getting back into the Premiership.

Totally agree Totlanh :o

Latest on Ben Thatcher. I personally think that this is punishment enough and well done to City for acting swiftly and harshly.

Manchester City defender Ben Thatcher has been suspended by the club for six games after his horror challenge on Pedro Mendes, as well as being fined six weeks' wages.

The City left back has been widely condemned for the forearm smash that sent Mendes to hospital last week, and the Premiership club have now imposed their own punishment on the Wales international.

Thatcher has been handed a six-game ban by Stuart Pearce's side, two of which are suspended, meaning he will miss the upcoming ties against Reading, Blackburn Rovers and Chesterfield after also being left out of the squad for the 1-0 win over Arsenal last Saturday.

As for the fine dished out by City, two weeks of the six will also be suspended, as they look to take a stance against the ugly challenge which was condemned by Pearce following the game.

City chief executive Alistair Mackintosh confirmed that the Eastlands club felt compelled to act with haste after Portsmouth midfielder Mendes suffered a seizure and was left unconscious in the ugly incident.

"As custodians of the club and football in general, the board and the manager felt it was important to act as soon as possible," Mackintosh told City's official website.

Thatcher has also been charged with serious foul play by the Football Association, despite being shown a yellow card at the time of the incident, with Greater Manchester Police also conducting an investigation.

Andrew Cole

Sky Sports News understand Manchester City striker Andy Cole is having a medical at Portsmouth.

The 34-year-old emerged as a shock target for Harry Redknapp on Wednesday and is now likely to move to Fratton Park, should he pass the necessary medical tests.

Cole suffered with a serious knee injury last season, but has since returned to fitness, and City boss Stuart Pearce appears to be resigned to letting the former England international leave Eastlands.

Pompey are stepping up their transfer activity ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline, having already captured Benfica midfielder Manuel Fernandes on loan on Wednesday.

Chief executive Peter Storrie has indicated that Redknapp is keen to sign a fifth striker and Cole now seems set to be the man to provide competition alongside Nwankwo Kanu, Benjani Mwaruwari, Svetoslav Todorov and Tresor Lomana Lua Lua.

City, who signed Bernardo Corradi and Paul Dickov over the summer, have confirmed that Cole is determined to leave the club.

"We note the public comments made today by Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie regarding Andrew Cole," read a club statement.

"Manchester City can confirm that while we do not wish to lose Andrew at such a late stage in the transfer window, he has expressed a desire to leave the club and join Portsmouth."

Totally pissed off with Cole.Is there any loyalty these days...NOT.Anyway what a terribile time to loose your best forward 1 day prior to the closure of the transfer window and thus means we cant bring a new striker in until Jan,and one of the reasons we struggled towards the end of last season was because we could,nt score goals,and why was this,yep,because we were minus Cole.Once again City are in the Poo because of a Judas piece of shit :D:o

Manchester City have tied up the loan signing of PSV Eindhoven ace DaMarcus Beasley.

The USA international has moved to The City of Manchester Stadium on a season-long loan, with a view to a permanent deal.

Beasley is under contract to PSV until 2008, but has been allowed to test his skills in The Premiership with City.

The winger, who operates on the left flank, is due to be unveiled at a press conference by City next week.

The 24-year-old joined PSV two years ago from MLS club Chicago Fire and he won the Eredivisie title last term.

He also played for United States in the World Cup in Germany earlier in the summer and will now continue his career in England.

City boss Stuart Pearce had been looking to strengthen the left side of his midfield, after opting not to sign either Albert Riera or Kiki Musampa permanently.

Beasley arrives at Eastlands on the back of City's decision to sell Antoine Sibierski to Newcastle United. More.............

French midfielder Antoine Sibierski has joined Newcastle United for an undisclosed fee, City have confirmed.

Sibierski, 32, made 64 league starts during his three years stay with the club and has signed a one-year contract at St James' Park.

A Kevin Keegan signing from Lens in August 2003, Sibierski found it increasingly difficult to command a starting place last season and failed to make Stuart Pearce's starting line up in the first three league games of this season.

Best news for a long time Sibierski away at last,cant believe anyone would actually pay money for the waste of space.............Dont know a thing about Beesley,smacks of any player will do to me!!!I recall Pearce saying he would give the kid Miller a chance on the left hand side but apart from a couple of sub apperances he is yet to honour this.Lets just hope Beesley works out better that Riera and Musamapa,not holding my breath though!!! :o

See were on ESPN on 01.55 am Monday night (Tuesday morning think that is) against Reading.

Be interesting to see if SP plays our new yank wide left or plays on the side of caution and goes with a more defensive-minded player (Danny Mills :o ).

Think Dickov and Weaver has proved us all wrong so far this season, eh! Been two of the better players.

Didi Hamann is close to full fitness ahead of City's Monday night match at Reading.

The German midfielder has been forced to miss the start of the season after picking up a foot injury on the tour of China, but Stuart Pearce is anticipating that the 33-year-old could feature for the first team soon.

"He’s trained with us with no problems at all. I think he’s got that much experience that if you wanted to pitch him in at anytime it’s not a problem because he’s a good pro and is one of those that you can trust fully. In an ideal world you might want to wait a little bit longer but I think he gets everything he needs out of the training sessions."

Having a player with Hamann's experience to call on at some stage was, according to Pearce, all part of his transfer policy over the summer.

"That was the whole plan with building a squad during the summer. On paper it would be good to keep the same team that beat Arsenal but it's great to look to the bench and have the likes of Didi and Hatem Trabelsi there.

"It certainly looks to be a lot stronger bench than last year, and that's no disrespect to the younger players that were there then. The main thing for me is to have as many fit players as possible.

"I would say that Didi would definitely be available, with Hatem we are still checking his fitness levels over the next few days."

Meanwhile, Reading skipper Graeme Murty faces a race to be fit for Monday after a freak accident in training.

"The players use a bungee wire that helps with their resistance training and it snapped right back onto his knee," Royals boss Steve Coppell told the club website.

Quote from THE SUN...tuesday September 12th

READING THUMP CITY

Reading produced a magnificent display to thump Manchester City 5-0 to confirm their intentions of attaining a Champions League spot this year.

An own goal from Joey Barton started the route after just 10 seconds, one of the fastest goals in Premiership history. Directly from the kick off Leroy Lita poked a hopeful ball towards the City goal and for some reason Barton controled it well then rounded his own keeper to thrash the ball into the net (Gallas eat your heart out).

Further strikes from Lita, Sidwell and 2 more own goals from Barton saw him walking off with the match ball...and a very long meeting with Stuart Pearce. In fact he could have scored 4 as when Reading were awarded a penalty for a handball by Barton in the 65th minute he was invited to take it by the Reading players, he agreed but sent the kick out of the ground :o

Speculation is rife that Barton will be confirmed as a Reading player in the January transfer window :D

In a post match interview Barton said that he was just in the wrong place at the right time and found it difficult to resist scoring goals as he has not done so well in a City shirt this season

Then I woke up :D

Well am i pissed off this morning!!!Once again ty pical bloody City.Following our great win against Arsenal we go and ###### it all up and get beaten by Reading for crying out loud.No disrespect meant to Reading but it was evident that City were the vastly superior team and we had huge portions of possesion in one 10 minute period according tro sky it was over 72%!!but we justr cant put the ball in the net!!!!This apart from being embarrising is becoming a serious problem.1 goal from 4 games and none from open play.Guess what?We are the only Club in the country with this unenvious statistic!!!I really do despair because as ive all ready alluded we actually played really well last night but were lacking the final ball and our ever glaring weakness on the left hand side was there for all to see!!

On the positive side nicky Weaver was superb again and i really feel he is justified no 1 status and indeed will be very annoyed if Pearce(who i am beginning to question somewhat)drops him.Also Dunne was equally superb along with Distin.Sinclair ran hisa socks off again and Barton looks like he is getting back to his best.So its not ALL doom and gloom but heck we really need to sort out our strike force!!!

Yep, not much to add to that. Except that, the sending off for Dabo was ridiculous, no intent, no elbow and now he will miss vital games. :o
