Svenchester City.: Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson is the new Manchester City boss, a move triggered by a controversial takeover at the club by former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

As the Fiver reminds me, the combination of Human Rights Lord (Trashcan Sinatra - ha!) and Boring Soccer King at City should keep the Man Utd fans laughing all the way into the next decade.

Don't care what the haters have to say. The Guardian rips City any time they have the chance anyway, so why should it come as any surprise that they're doing it again? I thought the Left was suppose to be a bit more kinder and gentler than that. I've spent months scouring the net for information on these human rights abuses and really haven't came across any specifics. As a City fan, I'm incredibly happy and don't care what the rags have to say.

Oh yeah? The Reds signed Tevez a few hours ago.... What Reds? Or do you mean Red Devils? There were rumors about Tevez moving to Anfield, but not recently or after Torres signed for us, so you nearly gave me an attack at the thought ;)

sorry should have clarified the red devils, of course I think it is a two year loan with an option to buy. I was just giving gottheblues some stick. Apologies for the palpitations ;)

I'm an American City supporter. I'm use to worse from ignorant American United fans; so no harm, no foul.

so no harm, no foul Good, 'cus I'm just goofin off, board. I'm no devil worshiper. I've been praying for Tevez to go to ANY EPL team except United. But, there is no God, or she just doesn't listen to me.

I saw Colin Bell at Maine Road in 1976 when they beat my team Derby 3-2. He might not be George Best, but he was pretty damn good. If you haven't already, I recommend all City fans read Colin Schindler's 'Manchester United Ruined My Life'. Terrific stuff. As for the human rights abuses: Amongst other things using thugs (probably police and army) to take 'suspected' crims off the street and summarily dispatch them.
