|The Sheikh of Manchester Oil and Football Club|
Man City was purchased by an exceedingly wealthy billionaire sheikh who decided to invest his endless supply of money in to Manchester's long term under-performing second team. Like a kid with a new toy, the sheikh went on a spending spree purchasing world class players for his team without a thought about the price tag. As anyone could have predicted after the Sheikh's insane investment in talent, Man City went on to win the EPL title this season (do keep in mind that they ALMOST blew it). Okay, great. I am truly happy for the long suffering fans of Manchester City. I can relate to following a team that is forever in the shadow of a bigger and more successful club. Good for them.
|Words from the hypocrite|
Beyond being rewarded for being greedy, Mancini also showed what a wimp and flip flopper he is. After Carlos Tevez went AWOL for months after refusing to play for Man City during a Champions League match, Mancini rightfully vowed that he was "finished" and would never play for the club again. Fans were burning his jersey and he became the most hated man in Manchester. So what happens? With the title slipping away, Mancini invites this selfish overpaid jock to come back. Tevez was last seen riding on an open top bus holding up a totally disrespectful sign and celebrating a championship he hardly played a part in.
|Get up, I got away with that one|
|Of course it's about the money|
Of course Arsenal fans were upset that one of their players was leaving and that might have been the end of the story. Sadly, Na$ri couldn't just take the money and leave with class. Instead he publicly mocked the club and its fans.
During the season, Na$ri played sporadically, got to know the bench on a first name basis and scored a few goals. Instead of being one of the core, money boy settled for a bit part in order to grab the loot and be a part of a team that purchased the title. So, what does he do? He again, shows zero class, intelligence or professionalism as he directs more vitriol to his former club, manager and its fans.
At the other end of the spectrum is Jack Wilshere who took a stand and shot back at this ungrateful part time player. Wilshere knows how to display class and appreciation..
Lastly, Joey Barton is a world class dirt bag. What he pulled on Sunday was absolutely insane. The fact that this guy is paid tons of money simply because he can play a game is insulting to upstanding humans everywhere that are struggling to find work and get by. If not for the sport of football, he would be in jail along with his brother. The FA should ban this guy for good.
