Grow up Mr Hart…oh and wash your hair!


HartOne incident that went largely unnoticed during yesterday famous victory over the Premier League champions involved England and Man City keeper Joe Hart.

And it demonstrated better than anything else could have done the disunity in the City ranks and the all for one never say die spirit of the Irons.

Hart got the right hump with West Ham fans in the Sir Trevor Brooking lower stand who were taunting him about his advertising of hair products.

After several early choruses of ‘He’s got dandruff in his hair, he’s got dandruff in his hair’ the England keeper made an obscene hand gesture to Hammers fans behind him.

If FA officials had spotted that it could of been considered as inciting the crowd but of course his actions just encouraged the crowd to get on his back more in unsettling him.

Further taunts of ‘wash your hair, wash your hair’ seemed to get to him as the game progressed and the goals went in.

It was obvious Hart was’nt happy with His side’s performance and that goes for many of his multi million team mates. Frequent disagreements broke out during the match with some blaming each other for defensive mistakes.

It was clear they weren’t playing as a unified team and we took full advantage of that. Even James Collins had Aguro in his pocket, something which frustrated the hell out of the Argentinian who was lucky to stay on the pitch after a stamp on Mark Noble. Vincent Kompany was also very lucky boy to see red after three incidents which warranted a yellow card, again his frustration that he was being outplayed by Enner Valencia.

Don’t worry lads there is always next season! I did chuckle when I heard Jose Mourinho texted Sam Allardyce after the game to say a big thank you!

    Agree with you there,James Collins was immense.The amount of blocks.perfect tackles and interceptions he made was incredible.Hard to single people out from a near perfect display. C.O.Y.I.

    Didn’t see the hand gestures Sean but it explains why the fans deliberately teased hart near the end of the game when he wanted to quickly get the ball back from the crowd. Lol.

    I have heard in the media about citeh being unhappy with the ref for giving so many “soft” decisions to us during the game and how we kept “falling over” to gain an advantage.

    All of which I find as incredulous as it is disrespectful. I have watched the game three times now and two things keep coming back to me.

    The first is that Kompany should have seen red for any number of offences against Valencia but for three in particular hat were obvious yellow cards, in a display that deliberately set out to stop the West Ham forward in anyway possible.

    The second was the disgusting and deliberate stamp on Noble by aguero. How the ref never saw it from two feet away and how it wasn’t a straight red card God only knows!

    Then having seen it, how the FA haven’t taken actio is also beyond me, then again after seeing the disgusting forearm smash assault by the WBA player on the palace keeper then it’s not hard to see why! Gutless cowards sums up both the assailants and the authorities perfectly!
    But it shouldn’t overshadow an excellent team performance, no more so than big ginge who played as well as he has ever played. This is particularly pleasing as it was his place in defence which has been in most danger.
