How the Citizens Stole Lampard

Well, not exactly; more like "borrowing" an old but still functional squirt gun that your little brother picked up for free from a garage sale, and using that to annoy its previous owner in every way possible for an entire year. Here's my quick pre-apology to all Manchester City fans, and to Frank Lampard for bringing up events involved around him so often in this blog.

Why Wilfried Bony will be worth every penny of the £28m Manchester City spend on him is a post from: Just Football

Strikers who arrive in the Premier League from the Eredivise will always be viewed with an unfair amount of suspicion we can blame Alfonso Alves, and now Jozy Altidore, for that and there was undoubtedly no shortage of people who viewed Swansea City's club-record £12m move for Wilfried Bony in 2013 as a gamble on the Welsh club's behalf.

So Gus Poyet thanks his lucky stars he could ditch Jozy Altidore to sign Jermain Defoe, proclaiming them a whole new team that will now give the novel concept of facilitating striker chances a whirl. I'd wonder what Steven Fletcher and Connor Wickham thought of those comments, but let's stayed focus on the dis.

Aaaand that is that.

Sunderland have announced both the signing of Jermain Defoe and the departure of Jozy Altidore to Toronto FC. It will ruffle some feathers, but I am not even slightly happy about this. I also highly question the logic of SAFC giving a 32-year-old forward a three-and-a-half year deal at a reported £80,000 a week.

Some of the most wonderful memories that I have of my own childhood were the countless weekends I spent watching soccer match after soccer match from the comfort of my own living room.

Flash back to the England versus Germany match in the 2010 World Cup Knockout Stage, where Frank Lampard picks up the ball trickled off from Jermaine Defoe, and chips it over Manuel Neuer, the goalkeeper of Germany; the ball hits the crossbar, bounces off the line, and Neuer quickly recovers it; Lampard raises his hands in celebration, but soon puts them over his head in disbelief, as the goal gets disallowed.

It would never happen in today's game as the keeper has an enormous amount of protection given unto him by the current rules of the however back in 1971 you were allowed to harass the keeper similar to what George Best did to England's number one Gordon Banks.

Former England full-back Danny Mills made the BBC's normally soporific Saturday results show "Final Score" a little spicier than usual yesterday by dredging up an old feud he has kept burning with Nottingham Forest manager Stuart Pearce.

When coach of Manchester City eight years ago, Pearce had dropped Mills in favour of Micah Richards, and according to Mills, accused him of falsely claiming injury.
