    Interesting Tweet from Simon Stone re: yesterday's game and the non-handshake incident with Jose.



    I can see why Jose ignored him. He was at his whiney peak all game yesterday, constantly trying to rile Jose.

    Ever since he's been City manager, he's been unbearable and incredibly bitter.

    He's doing well at Stoke but does have a habit of being a massive prick at times.

    Even the once honest Darren Fletcher was at it yesterday.

    Jose did well to keep his cool then.

    Sparky is a cnut, I don't like him as a manager. Jose seems to like his assistant far more than him.

    Fletcher is pretty unbearable too, agree, was like this at WBA as well. Not that I dislike him though, fair fecks to him that he gives his 100%, wouldn't expect anything other from such a pro.

    Hughes is a Legend. Was a great player for Utd, (twice).

    We still love you, Sparky.

    Type of cnut you put up with and even like if he's your cnut but he's not anymore so he's just a cnut now.

    He's very self entitled despite achieving feck all as a manager. He has a Pardew-esque arrogance. Not done really anything of note, has had (on paper) decent squads but can't do much with them - just very inconsistent

    Didnt Hughes tell him to feck off or summat regarding being in his technical area? seemed thats what it was about to me. Jose went and hugged the stoke staff to prove a point

    He still hasn't got over that Michael Owen late winner.

    I reveled in his fury when Owen put it away in the 97th minute.

    Made it all the sweeter. Think he is still really bitter about being shunted out after 94/95 season to allow CO92 to flourish.

    Never saw him play for United but I'm clued up enough to know that I should have some respect him. Hate him, mind.

    He sounded very bitter when he made comments about the "Top managers" in his interview at end with BT.

    He comes across as very arrogant despite having achieved little as a manager. I understand that he is managing other teams and has his own priorities but I struggle to recall any other player who spent so long at United and consistently displays so little affection for the club.

    Sparky was a great player. Not the greatest finisher but I don't judge him as a person because in his position, I think it's part and parcel of the game. Top player that's at his level in management. Great player though

    Thoroughly unlikable chap. Was just coming to an end of his days as I started casually supporting in the early 90s, so I don't even have that "used to love him as á player" thing.

    He was one hell of a finisher wasn't he? Always incredible finishes! Or do you mean didn't score enough?
    Scorer of great goals versus great goalscorer?

    Well he left the club a long time ago now and will probably never return. I remember he came back one time for a testimonial and got two goals (crackers). I think he misses that level

    I'm being a little harsh. He would get 15-25 give or take but I think he could have been even better. He had such great technique but maybe I was expecting too much lol. We were spoilt with him and Eric up top. Giggs and Kanchelskis on the wings....bloody hell.

    Noticed this about Fletcher yesterday too. Kept committing petty fouls and was not even apologetic after committing them.. Was kind of new for me? Felt if was very uncharacteristic of him and was annoyed to see him behave that way (Still like him a lot).

    He's from there, but sure he has said he was a Chelsea fan, that was why he was thrilled to get chance to play for them.

    Surely that's just the way other fans have seen him for years! Especially Arsenal!

    Yes, but players don't normally carry that on into their playing career. I think Keane was a Spurs fan, while Ole supported Liverpool! I wonder whether he was slightly bitter about being kicked out in 95 - after all, he does seem to have a very high opinion of himself.

    Perhaps he needs to go on a handshake workshop? Warning - the below is crazy weird.

    Think he is bitter about it. As a manager he seems to have his odd day in the sun, the rest of the time he serves up turgid rubbish. Yet still comes across as though Real Madrid should really be considering him.
