Okay, let's get this out of the way quickly, before we move onto altogether more relevant matters. Joey Bartons sending off at Manchester City was a pretty stupid piece of behaviour, for which he has been severely punished. There. That wasn't so bad, was it? Bartons media profile has a tendency to overshadow everything in its wake up these days, but this does his employers something of a disservice.

Forty-four years ago, Manchester City broke their record transfer fee and splashed out £60,000 on Francis Lee from Bolton Wanderers. Several months later, they celebrated their first English championship for thirty-one years. At the start of this season, they broke that transfer record again and it was the man whose arrival at The City of Manchester Stadium did this, the £38m Sergio Aguero, who scored an almost inconceivable goal three minutes into stoppage-time to bring the title back to the club on an afternoon of emotional extremes which encapsulated why we love and loathe this beautiful, extraordinary, sanity-testing game.
