As City fans, we must all be familiar by now with the appalling words uttered on TalkSport by the despicable journalist known as John Dillon.
We are aware that certain journalistic forces, insanely jealous at what Pep Guardiola is doing at the Etihad, are trying their best and by the darkest of means to unearth stories detrimental to the Club playing the best football ever seen on this planet.
The news thrown-up by Der Spiegel has proved to be a trigger point for the trigger-happy hacks we have to endure to try to boost their profiles as the world tries to denigrate Manchester City.
In among this, Talk sport carries out an interview with David Silva, one of the best footballers this planet has ever seen, where he talks frankly about the difficulties he endured at the end of last year and earlier this year, when his son, Mateo, fought bravely from being born prematurely and is now a healthy toddler.
This ghastly creature John Dillon said that City had used this story to deflect the bad news away from them. How awful is he? Such has been the vehemence of opinion against Dillon that he has issued a variety of hollow-sounding apologies, none of which were to David, but were just general to the likes of ourselves, outraged that he should say this when David went through the wringer trying to balance a footballing life with a new-born son whose life was in danger. City behaved on a far more classy way at the time refusing to reveal the issue until David was ready.
But Dillon, no doubt a Stretford-supporting scribe in a red-rag-red-top, saw fit to say what he said. It was simply to create the stir he has created.
City should join Liverpool and disallow anyone to do with the Sun from entering our stadium unless they pay for a ticket and are denied the use of the fantastic journalist facilities we have at the Etihad. What makes me even more sick is that the show Georgie Bingham did not disagree with him. I once heard her say that she “loves Manchester United”, but I suspect that after a bit of trolling her allegiance shifted to Ipswich Town.
I often watch Sunday Supplement which often has the likes of Dillon and Neil Custis as their budget guests. I have to say I dislike both of them intensely. Whereas I can tolerate the host, Neil Ashton, I think he should get a job with a better newspaper than the Sun.
As far as Dillon is concerned, I will call upon the only United-supporting artist I have any time for, to give us the outro. Dr John Cooper-Clark says:
“Your dirty name gets passed about when something goes amiss
Your attitudes are platitudes
Just make me wanna **s
What kind of creature bore you
Was it some kind of bat?
They can’t find a good word for you
But I can…
