he was booked, and subbed straight off, after 3 minutes on the pitch - because the manager thought the same :D

Stupid move by Balotelli. Wasnt like the game was 5-0 and it was the last minute (Still would be taking the mick though). Glad he was subbed.

Hes a very talented player but sometimes just seems a complete idiot.

Anyway roll on the new footy season, not long to go now. Some big names/new managers this year, should be interesting to see what its like at the top of the premiership. Hope Man City do even better this year

Well we've now brought in 35 year old George Boateng and 32 year old Jonathan Greening and also signed up Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink as first team coach.

So basically players that played for McClaren about five-ten years ago.

At least we have been winning most of our pre-season games.

It's the same with the Scottish Premier League - splits in 2 towards the end of the season , meaning that one team may score more points than another, yet finish BELOW them in the table. It's as though someone up there is trying to prove a point , but goodness knows what that point is!

Former Japan defender Naoki Matsuda died in hospital on Thursday, two days after collapsing during training from a suspected heart attack. He was 34.
Matsuda, who won 40 caps for Japan and represented his country at the 2002 World Cup, had been put on an artificial respirator after arriving at hospital unconscious on Tuesday.

Hiroshi Otsuki, the president of his JFL side Matsumoto Yamaga, told Japanese media the club had been informed Matsuda had lost his fight by the player's family.

Frustrating result for Coventry against Leicester today, though we were in with a shout when Leicester went down to 10 men but that all went out the Window when Baker got sent off. Two youngster got their first team debut's today which was nice to see, but also proves what a financial mess we are in...in all honesty, I will be surprised if we manage to stay in the Championship this year.

0-0 draw at home to Barnsley for us at the weekend. Slightly disappointed but at least it wasn't a lost.

We have also agreed an undisclosed fee with ADO Den Haag for the permanent transfer of Wesley Verhoek who is a 24 year old right winger.

Fantastic game at Broadhall Way last night. Peterborough getting a penalty in the last minute of extra time was a kick in the teeth but saw enough positives out of the game and played bloody well. Hopefully we'll see plenty of performances like that, could be a good first year in League One if we held on.

The Premier League will decide on Thursday if this weekend's opening round of matches are to be postponed after another night of rioting.
Riots have taken place around the country since Saturday, stretching police resources.
A joint statement from the Premier League and Football League read: "We're in talks with our London clubs, the police and authorities.
"A further statement will be made after the situation is reviewed on Thursday."
There are three Premier League fixtures taking place in London on Saturday, all at 1500 BST: Tottenham v Everton, Fulham v Aston Villa and QPR v Bolton.
Tuesday's statement added that "there is no reason to think any matches outside of London will be affected", but it was released before trouble also flared up in the West Midlands and Manchester.
West Bromwich host Manchester United on Sunday at 1600 BST before Manchester City play at home to Swansea on Monday at 2000 BST.

Several football fixtures have already been affected by the riots. England's international friendly against the Netherlands on Wednesday was called off, as was Ghana's friendly with Nigeria at Watford's Vicarage Road, which was due to take place on Tuesday.

Wednesday's Carling Cup tie between Bristol Rovers and Watford was also postponed at the request of the police, following the cancellation of Tuesday's ties at Charlton, West Ham, Crystal Palace and Bristol City.

--------------
Now this from QPR owner:
QPR owner Bernie Ecclestone has told BBC Sport that the cancellation of Premier League games in the wake of this week's rioting would send "a terrible message to the rest of the world".
