It's good to know that you can make a difference in the sporting world. Days after being publicly warned on WHAB, regular readers Roberto Mancini and Chris Hickey promptly got their teams playing better. Mancini's Manchester City pulled off a stunning 4-2 thrashing of league leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, despite Wayne Bridge being booed throughout the match by the douchebag Chelsea home crowd. Bridge's crafty sidestep of John Terry during the pre-match handshake set the tone for City with doubles to Carlos Tevez and Craig Bellamy, the two niggliest players in City's squad. The barely 5 foot tall Tevez squaring up to the 6 foot plus Terry was the highlight of the game, and in the post-match commentary Bellamy was in fine form, saying something to the effect "We all know what John Terry's like, he'd fuck anything that moves." Great stuff.
Chris Hickey also deserves a wrap, despite the Waratahs going down to the Bulls. The Tahs, for probably the first time ever under Hickey ran in 4 tries, and more importantly, looked great in attack. After leading early, they were finally run down by a very, very good Rugby team, and were unlucky not to grab a second bonus point. Sure they let in 48 points, but considering it was the Bulls at Loftus, and that they also put 50 on the Brumbies, and are averaging a whopping 49.67 points per game, I'll let that slide.
When WHAB speaks, people listen.
