The Sun gents
We should put that on the Stretford End where the ticker banner used to go.
I agree about Barry being underrated on here but maybe not about him being better than Parker. I would probably have Barry in my team over Carrick if given the choice.
The turmoil engulfing Manchester City has intensified after it emerged that controversial striker Mario Balotelli was involved in a dressing-room confrontation with Yaya Toure after Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Sunderland.
On another damaging weekend for the club, Roberto Mancini also admitted that Manchester City’s title bid could be “finished” within a week. Manchester United could stretch their current two-point lead to eight in the coming days, a gap which Mancini fears will be too great to make up.
If that is one headache for the Italian, another is the increasingly erratic Balotelli, whose behaviour is threatening to rip apart his squad. Balotelli, subjected to strong criticism by Mancini following the game, despite scoring twice, is understood to have been involved in a stand-up row with Toure before being ushered away by the Ivorian midfielder’s brother Kolo.
The Italian forward also clashed with Yaya following the defeat at Swansea last month and has previously been involved in training ground fights with Jerome Boateng and Micah Richards.
Such is City’s exasperation with the 21 year-old, who Mancini claimed could not be trusted on Friday, that the club are prepared to listen to offers from rival outfits this summer if he fails to eradicate signs of immaturity and his apparent ignorance of authority.
“Mario played like I said about him before the game,” Mancini said. “He can do nothing, like he did today for 70 minutes, but then score two goals.
Reminds me of Wengers comment about Drogba. 'All he does is score goals' priceless. Tits up at City. Things are so bad the owner may turn up again. That would be twice in 3 years.
So, Citeh players had a dust up - why not just report it when they dont? Now, that would be news.
They don't have an excuse anymore...
Okay, I'm starting to like him. D'ya think Fergie could handle him?
Manutd: QPR (H)

Quotes from Blue moon tonight
The Real Alty Blue
I think it was lost after the Sunderland game but the rags tonight just sealed our fate 100%.
I'm feeling quite sad now really.
Back in January I was planning on hanging a city flag out of my car and planning where I was gonna cruise around Manchester after we won the league.
Now I feel like a bit of a d!ck. Was I stupid or mad?
If we beat Arsenal which we can do everyone will fell a little more confident and it will give the players a huge lift. Beat Arsenal beat the Rags level on points it's not over till the fat lady sings and we can't give up. No pressure on us now lets just grind out 7 wins and see what happens
It's not over yet
They have to come to our place, and go to Sunderland. We win our games, we will be Champions. Still taking one game at a time
I am quite happy for Utd to think they have done it. They have not.
They are favourites, because beating Arsenal is going to be difficult. But I am sure that even you will admit we can do it.
Bless his little cotton socks.
There's also one I must post.
Matt the Giant
Con grats to United, they deserve to win it, simple as that.
