THE CONDENSED READ: Fulham away

*adopts weighty tones of David Coleman* 


***

"Craven Cottage, a real traditionalist's venue, welcomes a rampant Manchester City side, for whom coach Manuel Pellegrini makes a number of changes, some enforced others not. The beanpole Bosnian Dzeko replaces the injured Aguero, whilst the Chilean will be hoping Gael Clichy reveals a hitherto undiscovered right foot..."

*** 

"And the little magician waved his wand and left the crossbar twanging like a simple elastic band. City centimetres from taking the lead..."

*** 

"One-nil! It's there. And. What. A. Strike. It. Was. The big Ivorian seems to own that top corner..."

*** 

"It's in! And Kompany leads the way in a true captain's fashion. He was there to pick up the crumbs and that's what makes a champion's feast..."

*** 

"And. You. Cannot. Defend. Like. That. City undone down the flanks and Richardson pilfers a goal like a petty thief..."

*** 

"It's there! Two-two!. City unravelling before our eyes and it's the captain undoing all his good work. The ball just arced over Hart in slow motion. What a game we have here now..."

*** 

"3-2!! Fulham undressed by the speed of Navas and the sheer speed of thought of little Silva. A goal crafted in Iberia. Wonderfully worked by the darting Spaniards..."

*** 

"And. What. Can. You. Say. About. That?! There's just no accounting for that pass from Negredo. He hit it with the outside of his boot and it just flew into the path of Milner. Skill and impudence will bring its reward and City are coasting now..."

R.I.P.

  1. 'There goes the final whistle, to bring an end to a game where Manchester City stumbled, yet proved they have the endurance, and class to win the championship.....'

    RIP. What other broadcast journalist could be remembered for both the quality of his work, and also be the instigator of 'Colemanballs'?

    1. "For those of you watching in black and white, Chelsea are playing in the blue shirts...". Even that is class in its own way.

  2. The Negredo flick was a work of genius
