Tevez sign reveals City obsession

It was suppose to be a celebration, a joyous moment to forget 44 years of hurt and, more importantly, the entity responsible for that half a century of disappointment and bitterness.

It turned out to be a testament of jealousy and envy thanks to a man who – no longer than five months ago – claimed to despise everything about the city through which he paraded the Premier League trophy yesterday.

As Carlos Tevez held a placard reading “RIP Fergie” he managed not only to make himself an even more hated figure at Old Trafford, he also took the limelight off his club’s biggest day in 44 years.

For a man who was deemed “finished” with the club by his manager after refusing to play and who then spent five months playing golf in his own country while his team-mates huffed and puffed towards the title, to do what Tevez did yesterday is simply disgraceful and severe actions should be taken, even though, in today’s world, players are untouchable unless they’re caught swearing into a camera.

The lack of response from most journalists was untimely as well or have Fleet Street’s finest endorse a “oh no, not him again” attitude which makes a serial offender less worthy of a news than anybody else?

Or was it because City’s fairytale season was not to be spoilt by anyone?

Carlos Tevez has mocked the club he represents repeatedly this season, his refusal to play, his unathorised leave, his golf celebration after the hat-trick at Norwich would have guarantee him a one way ticket out of any club in the country and, perhaps, the world.

Not City who, so desperate to finally get one over their neighbours, Β allowed him to make himself much bigger – and, to his eyes, extremely more important – than the club itself, and the same fans who were invited to swap his replica shirts in December were loving every minute of his antics yesterday.

Had they been slightly more than detached they would have looked on in disbelief as the man they love casted United’s shadow over City’s biggest and most-awaited moment for half a century.

As a famous TV commercial has reminded us for years now, there are things that, regardless of the money we might have, we simply can’t buy and the difference between the way United handed themselves in defeat and yesterday’s crass events could have hardly been more striking.

City have won the title and perhaps others will follow, more and more players will be brought in courtesy of the endless financial resources at their disposals but yesterday offered further proofs that for all their financial wealth, their obsession with United will never enable them to become a truly successful team as they’re – and always will be – too busy to avoid the shadow casted over them by the red half of the city.

It was suppose to be a celebration, a joyous moment to forget 44 years of hurt and, more importantly, the entity responsible for that half a century of disappointment and bitterness.

It turned to be the moment when City confirmed their status of a small club with a small mentality.

    Is it true that On last day of League, Man United’s starting XI costs 8 million pounds more than City’s. ❓

      Have you worked out the wage bill too or is that an irrelevant detail?

        @Ian: Or the bench which had Milner, De Jong, Balotelli, Kolarov and Dzeko who cost around Β£110m………

    What Tevez did yesterday shows what little class he and Shitty have. It is embarrassing the way they have welcomed the ugly little runt back after refusing to play for them. I shows what a weak manager Mancini is, stating he will never play for the club again and then reversing his decision is somewhat pathetic. Tevez is what is wrong with football, a foreign mercenary who has no morals and is pandered to by people who use him as a cash cow.

    Even when theyve just won the league for the 1st time in 40 odd years, theyve still got to spend their big moment in the sun, going on about us πŸ™„
    All the money in the world doesnt change what shitty and old kettle neck are – bitters with no class.

    PS- Reports saying up to (although i think its being kind) 75,000 people turned up yesterday during citys title celebrations.
    And yet Manchester is apparently blue eh πŸ™„
    Another myth vanished in an instant.

      @tonymontanna4united: That myth is and has always been laughable. Only people in the South actually believe that rubbish.
      Manchester is Red and always will be.

      @Wayne Rooney:

      I agree, my old pal Tevez was just having a bit of a harmless laugh. The bitter fans of ours are trying to take the limelight of the admitedly better team in their triumphant day

    As much as I hate Tevez and City, I think the way some of our fans are just focusing on this incident to take away what City earned this year. This rant and others like it are making us look more bitter than they ever were and lets face it, right now we are bitter, our rivals beat us and we can’t help but be bitter.

    Lets be honest, the sign was a reference to a comment Fergie made a few years ago and it’s a harmless joke we would find funny if it was the other way around. Stop being bitter fellas, lets get behind our boys and try harder next time!

      @ChambersManUtd4Life: Chambers IF you really are a United fan, then speak for yourself mate – I am not bitter, far from it. There is a colossal difference between being bitter about Tevez making a donkeys dick of himself again with his low class poster waving, and United fans being bitter about City winning the league. All the United fans I know are not bitter we lost the league, but are bitter with Tevez and his fucked up head which is still Man Utd obsessed, and so his whole focus is on Man Utd on a day when City are supposed to be celebrating their massive victory trophy. Big difference in being bitter because City won it, and being bitter with Tevez continually making a dick of himself. This is what happens when you play for City though, because lets face it, we never had an ounce of trouble with Tevez and that sort of crass behaviour when he was at OT – FACT. So Chambers, please get your facts right – bitter about City PL win – NO, bitter about dickhead Tevez crass idiocy – YES, big difference there!

        @Craig Mc: its true that we didn’t have a lot of trouble when tevez was with us but if i recollect correctly he did give a few interviews saying he was unhappy with being left out on the bench.SAF saw that he was going to be a trouble in dressing room and sold him instantly.showing the RIP sign was stupid in itself but it didn’t p*ss me off as much as the interview released later when he calls SAF the president and all other bulls*** fact i give credit to SAF for spotting the spoiled brat so early and shipping him off…

      @ChambersManUtd4Life: Tbh i can see what your saying mate, but as craig says, its the not the fact that city are having a pop at fergie that annoys me (fergies a big boy and can defend himself, and his comments now about city never being ahead of us in his lifetime is a bit laughable now tbh, which is probably what prompted this sign in the first place) its the fact that even on their big day, theyve still got to go on about us.
      Tbh i wasnt all that happy last year either with our own celebrations, which seemed to likewise make us look rather obsessed in regards to the scousers and overtaking their 18, but i suppose thats a little different due to the occassion, but regardless see what your saying but dont think its bitterness on the most part, just alot of people becoming angered by a kettled neck classless little shit.

    Classic comparison between Berba and Tevez:
    1) Berba is shut out for a season and doesn’t squeak a peep. Claim that if United were to win the title, he would not feel proud because he did not contribute

    2) Tevez, who left his team for 6 months to play gulf and troll around in Argentina’s woodlands, played a minute role for City and actually was subbed when United were top of the table in the last game of the season. His replacements secured the title for City. Yet, he brags about his victory as if he was great hunter, when in fact he just collects road-kills.

    Tevez is a disgraceful rat. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Can’t wait for next season, when United rise from the ashes and demolish the league!!! Can’t wait!

    From Daily Mail :

    Ferguson pipped Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho, Harry Redknapp and David Moyes to the manager’s award.

    Comedy at its best..How can Redknapp come in the same sentence with Sir Alex..? πŸ™„ 😯 πŸ™„
