City Gossip

Indeed. I find the Fail's characterisation of the incident as "Rodri's trick" and thus implying that it was nasty, sneaky City that got away a mean and unethical piece of play.

The rule was the rule - he did nothing wrong - but by using this description the narrative continues that sneaky, evil City got away with something.

I agree Skoorb we did so underhandly, I know we say this time and again but had that been City defending and a Villa playing the ball, they would have called it a brilliant piece of skill and accused the City defender of being asleep

The pundits would have been banging on about "He should know the rules and he made a MASSIVE mistake...... City's Defensive Woes return...." :blah:
 
"he’s a fighter"

Really? Seen precious little evidence of that. Would appreciate some examples Mr Belmadi. Prima Donna maybe. Scores the sixth goal in a thrashing but selfishness affects his judgement before then. Had he wriggled free like Torres did Vs SU last weekend I would have put big money on him shooting rather than setting up a team mate.
