After all the recent bad press we've received, including some about how we treat ex-players, citing Lampard & Ince, it's nice for us to get some good press:
"I've decided not to celebrate my goals out of respect to West Ham," said Tevez.
"They were my first club in England and, in my heart, part of me will always be a Hammer. The professional part of me was really pleased with my first City goals at home but, personally, I would have preferred to beat another club.
"In the derby against United I had also decided not to celebrate our goals but, after the bad treatment I received from the supporters that day, I have changed my stance on that. If I score in the next derby then I am sure that I will celebrate."

On another note - seriously, boys.
What's with all the doom and gloom? We will start picking up results and end up in mid-table.
Hopefully, someone will then buy us and allow GZ to spend a little money to take us into Europe.
