Mick mocked

What is it with Man City and the demise of managers of North-East clubs?

First Souness was issued with his P45 the day after a miserable 3-0 drubbing at Eastlands, and now the Great Unwashed down the road have decided to follow in our shadow (as ever) in sacking Mick McCarthy less than 24 hours after the Mackems' hilariously suicidal defending gifted City a 2-1 win. Both goals came from striker Georgios Samaras - some might say it was a Greek tragedy for Mick, but not us. More like high farce.

All that's left for the Mackems to achieve is a new lowest ever points tally. They've currently amassed a mighty total of 10, and are still three wins away from equalling 2002-3's paltry haul of 19. (As pointed out, since Glenn Roeder replaced Souness we've taken thirteen points from five games, three more than McCarthy managed all season (from 28 games).) Kevin Ball has been temporarily installed at the helm of a ship sinking faster than the Titanic, and if his managerial skills are anything like his footballing talents then he should easily succeed in steering his beloved red 'n' whites to a new low.
