Is Pep Guardiola the first man to wear socks inside?

Castles in the sky
What was Jose Mourinho lickspittle Duncan Castles doing as Manchester City were claiming the title thanks to Manchester United’s embarrassing defeat to West Brom? Apart from crying salty tears, of course…

After a £1billion+ investment in Pep Guardiola and still more before he arrived, Abu Dhabi's Manchester City still has a poorer European Cup and UEFA Cup record than Dundee United…

Since plain old Manchester City became ‘Abu Dhabi’s Manchester City’ in 2008, they have reached the knock-out stages of the Champions League five times; Dundee United – bless them – have failed to reach the group stages of the Europa League.

Still…it’s not like that £1billion-plus investment stuff was absolute bollocks

 

Mock the weak
Top story on MailOnline football at 12pm the day after Manchester City clinched the title?

‘Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday following Manchester United’s defeat by West Brom, but club sponsors Etisalat have been widely mocked for their cringeworthy celebration video. Shortly after City’s title win was confirmed, telecommunication company Etisalat posted a video showing members of Pep Guardiola’s squad celebrating. The video wasn’t well received on Twitter, though, with many fans, especially those of other clubs, mocking it.’

Video mocked by opposition fans? It’s literally the biggest story in football.

Stay classy.

 

Late lunch
We’re not saying that Richard Forrester of The Sun Online has read Paul Hirst’s excellent piece in The Times about ‘How Guardiola built a team fit to sweep all before them’, re-wrote a couple of paragraphs and stuck a ‘REVEALED’ on his own piece to imply that he has some inside knowledge but…no, that’s exactly what we are saying.

Hirst: ‘It is compulsory for players to have lunch and breakfast at the CFA. The former Barcelona coach wants to ensure his players do not gain weight and he insists they stick to a healthy diet of lean meat, vegetables and fish.

‘Instructing your players to eat two meals a day at the training ground is an abnormal request for professional footballers, but City’s squad do not mind.

‘”They know it helps create a positive environment,” one official said.’

Forrester ‘reveals’: ‘The majority of teams don’t instruct their players to eat two meals together every day – but not Guardiola. His first-team stars will be joined by the manager and members of the coaching staff first thing in the morning to eat breakfast.

‘Then after a training session they will return for lunch where they will be served up a hearty meal including fish, meat and veg. Players are handed a box of mixed nuts to take home too. He believes it is an essential tool to create a positive environment.’

How bizarre that somebody at The Sun typed the word ‘REVEALED’ when they clearly meant ‘READ’. Silly-billy.
