Gareth Barry is being charged by the FA for verbal abuse towards a match official, yet Wayne Rooney is not being charged for provoking Manchester City fans. That's right Rooney ran towards the City faithful sliding in front of them on his knees, the same thing Adebayor did in front of Arsenal fans only Adebayor was charged for the exact same offence.
Saying that United's fans are up in arms about Rio Ferdinand being hit by a coin, they have extremely short memories those cretins do. I seem to remember projectiles being thrown by United fans at many a City player in the past, the FA have never done a thing about it when it happened because it's their love child United.
I never support violence when innocent people are involved, but then Rio Ferdinand is not an innocent party now is he. He is always on twitter like a few other United players mouthing off. They believe they can say what they like when they like and expect to get away with it, this is what is wrong with society in this day and age.
Players continue to needlessly provoke fans, Wayne Rooney is one of those players who continuously provokes and gets away with it, they need to be reminded that if they play with fire they will eventually get burnt. The human race only has a certain amount of patience and reasoning, you continually provoke anyone and eventually they will react.
I'm sorry but I think Rio Ferdinand needed a wake up call, shame Wayne Rooney did not learn the same lesson too. Like I said I don't promote violence but the fans are not the only guilty party here, people need to wake up because a world without violence doesn't and will probably never exist unfortunately.
As far as the Derby goes, it's still early days and is pretty insignificant, let the morons have their day because come the end of the season they could well be smiling on the other side of their faces. A freshen up is on the cards at City guys and girls, we have an exciting new year to look forward too, mark my words.
Ignore what's going on now in the papers etc and have a very merry Christmas and an even more happy New Year City fans.
