Fowl play?

I believe that City fans are a little miffed this week.

I understand.

It’s not just that Fowler is leaving, it’s the sheer glee he’s showing about ‘coming home’ to us Reds.

As Simon Hattenstone puts it in today’s Guardian:

"Fowler grew up an Evertonian, but ended up the ultimate Liverpool Red. A few weeks ago he scored City’s third goal against Man United, ran over to the United end and stuck up five digits. The four fingers and thumb represented Liverpool’s five European Cup victories compared with United’s two. As far as Robbie was concerned, he’d scored the goal for Liverpool not City against United. Perhaps that is why so many supporters love him – because, more than anything he is a fan. It’s just a pity the bastard isn’t a City fan."
You’ve got to feel sorry for City fans on this one. Especially any City fan with a wife who queued up hours to get them a signed Fowler autobiography for Christmas.
