    'Arry at Brum has got, allegedly, a very strong back staff including Cotterill. Cotterill was much vaunted as a future England team manager. Stokies have a dim view of him because he managed us for just a few short weeks before leaving for "greener grass!" His career has been all down hill since then!!

    I believe this is Cloughies second stint at managing the Albion. He did ten years previously before moving on and Hesselbank taking over.

    So pleased with that result against Burnley and a real battle at the end with 10 men, that puts us joint top with Man Utd as it stands!

    None conceded too, hopefully we make 3 out of 3 before the international break.

    Excellent result for us today, one I didn't see coming, to be honest. Onwards & upwards for next week....!!

    Going to be a good match tbh against the clay heads on TV next week.

    Hegazi has been the stand out buy for us, Gareth Barry had a solid debut too.

    as a sunderland fan cotterill was responsible for one of the funniest comments i've heard at a game.
    when he and howard wilkinson were at our club cotterill would often stand pitchside with his pen and pad taking notes.
    one game whilst he was doing just that someone in the crowd shouted out 'hew man cotterill do you not know how to spell sh**e'
    you had to be there i suppose

    Anyone else fed up with players diving and trying to get other players sent off? Last night, Man City players would have beaten Everton if they had played Football instead of falling over at the hint of contact. The two Argentinians, Aquero and Otemendi are a disgrace. Otemendi supposed to be a hard man, what a joke. I could tie him in knots even a my age. Aquero finally got an Everton player off the pitch. He looked to see where he was and then clearly dangled his leg out to make contact and rolled about as if he's been stabbed. Coward and a cheat. Same bloke fell over when he felt Fellainis' hair on his forehead. I hope they win bugger all, again.

    I agree Chesh, Agüero overplayed his fall, but the referee fell for it and if he'd have consulted his line and remembered the new rules this season then Mr Kun should really have got himself a yellow for simulation. Unfortunately it was a second yellow for Schneiderlin so I don't think it can be reviewed, but if Everton were able to protest I think Agüero should be penalised - which I don't want 'cos he's in my FF Team!
