Still no word from the FA as to when they will charge Ronaldo for kicking an opponent in this weekend's tie against Blackburn. Nor frankly do i expect that to happen even as City are still dealing with the loss of SWP for three games. We know, deep in our hearts, that the FA and Premier League are not corrupt but time and again the appearance is given with uneven dispensation of disciplinary matters.

Friday October 25th 1415 a vastly outnumbered force of Englishmen utterly destroyed the cream of the French nobility at the Battle of Agincourt. The French, frankly, have been pissed about it ever since. How else to explain yet another ludicrous attack on the Premier League, and specifically this time on Manchester City, by Grand Supreme buffoon of UEFA Michel Platini.

I suppose it speaks to the expectations of the fans these days that I can say that I am rather disappointed with City's work in the transfer window. Wayne Bridge, Shay Given, Craig Bellamy and Nigel De Jong. Do you consider that a good month's work in the transfer window? Even taking into account that De Jong's acquisition effectively creates five new signings with Kompany moving into the back four.

The Rambling view from the City perspective

The Club have announced that Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given has become the 4th signing of the transfer window.

Shay Given is a quality goalkeeper. He's better than Joe Hart, indeed better than just about every other goalkeeper in the Premier League. In fact you could argue he is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League and it would be a reasonable argument.

The Rambling view from the City Perspective

An unfortunate loss against Stoke after a positive result mid week against Newcastle. Same team each time, with a very interesting Zabaleta/De Jong midfield anchor partnership and the team playing a 4-2-3-1. Good. Yes I know we lost against ten man Stoke, however this was Hughes maximizing the resources he has available to him given injuries and suspensions.
