Have I missed something? Zabaleta? What's all this fuss? :conf:
His last home game for Man City as he's leaving in the summer.
I understand that, but why all the fuss? He's just another City player.
Been there since 2008, what is seen as the start of City's resurgence. (Or money fuelled period).

City fans love him. Won the league twice with them.

:conf:
Just another City player.
I don't follow...why shouldn't City fans make a fuss about a long standing player who has been a huge favourite of theirs? Just like we did over many of our ex players....

Many? Who, other than SKD? And was Zabaleta as pivotal to City's success? I don't think so. He's just an ordinary City player. How are they going to go on when Kompany or Toure leave? Big fuss about nowt as far as I can see. Still, I'm happy to leave you with your fawning.

He was a hugely popular player there who came just as the good times started. Was also at his peak the best right back in the league by a way.

People at Bolton demanded testimonials or send offs when likes of Campo left....

End of the day not sure why you'd bother who City fans like or don't? Zabaleta has always been hugely popular there.

I couldn't care a flying 4uck who they like or dislike. My original question was "Have I missed something? Zabaleta? What's all this fuss?".

And the answer was, he's a hugely popular player City fans have taken to their heats, who has been there a long time during the best period in the club's history.

Bradford staying down. Good.

Never thought I'd back Millwall against them but all the crap they spouted this year - one dimensional Parky, their football being something akin to Brazil in 1970, how they were going to catch us by the end of the season etc

You'll be better off staying in the lower divisions lads. It's where you've spent the bulk of your history. Thanks for Morais!

Agreed. Did raise a smile when Millwall scored. And it looked suspiciously offside to me. Missed the replay though so perhaps it weren't....

So, no doubt then you'll have been in full support yesterday of this contrived bollocks that saw Chelsea's number 26, John Terry, taken off on the stroke of 26 minutes to a guard of honour during an actual Premier League game? If not, where are you drawing the line?

He's not retired. He's leaving Chelsea to play for someone else, probably another premiership team.

The whole thing was embarrassing in the extreme. Got some serious sort of complex has that bloke.

Mind you, I was quite touched when he blubbed about his wife and his kids, I could hear Wayne Bridge applauding from our front room.

Indeed. A normal bloke who has not played much this season, especially later on would be embarrassed to be too involved in the team's celebrations. Not him though. No, he had to life the bloody trophy. And be taken off to a guard of honour on 26 minutes. At his own request...what an absolute nob.

I don't mind the fans wanting to give a player a send off. Terry deserved one. But this was entirely manufactured by Terry himself. Starting the game, asking Sunderland to kick the ball out on 26 minutes so he could be subbed with a guard of honour....a speech at the end. Lifting the trophy despite not playing.

It is the way Terry wanted the limelight and totally manufactured the day around himself. That is very different from PZ.

Oh really? And how do you know that Terry manufactured it? How do you know that he asked Sunderland to boot it out? Lifted the trophy without playing? He played for 26 minutes? How do you know that it was Terry who'd manufactured the day around himself? And again, where are you drawing the line? Who are you to say what's acceptable and what isn't?

Errrr cos Terry said it was his idea and he asked the manager to do it....

I'm calling Terry a nob, for his constant search for the limelight. Not bemoaning a send of for a legend of Chelsea. He would have got a great send off without that nonsense.

Coz he said he did.

Clearly completely different situations.

PZ cult hero, been there forever, the fans wanted to say a goodbye. Absolutely no problem with that (though I wondered why it was a news story).

Terry clearly in at the very least the same bracket (or higher) but contrived 26th Mon celebrations that he came up with? Feck off to that.
