Things we love: Week three

THINGS WE LOVE: Best of the web from the week that was

THINGS WE LOVE: Best of the web from the week that was

What City-related gems has the wonderful world wide web provided this week?

With the furore surrounding transfer deadline day we’ll forgive you for missing the best of the beautiful game on the internet over the last seven days.

But fear not, the latest offering from our ‘Things we love’ series is here to bring you up-to-date…


Joe Hart's message to fans

Shorter than last week's suggestion, but by no means any less impactful.

Following the announcement that he would play the remainder of this season at Torino, Joe Hart took to Instagram to pay tribute to City fans in a heartfelt message.

Certainly a post every Blue should take the time to read, Joe reflect on the 'amazing journey' he and the Club have been on together and thanked fans for their support.

We're sure, like us, that you'll have found it an absolute pleasure.


When David White stunned Villa Park

Or perhaps, introducing, for those of you not old enough to recall the goal scoring exploits of David White. Either way, we were delighted to discover his son, Sam, isn't about to let people forget.

A brace the give City a first win in nine against Liverpool to give City and an unforgettable night at Villa Park as White scored four in a 5-1 victory. Magic.


Cahill and Fornaroli surprise Melbourne City fans

After the success of 'Pep's Taxi' we're big fans of surprising supporters, which is why we love this effort from Melbourne City.

Not content with a traditional kit launch, they gave four unsuspecting youngsters a day to remember as they met last season's top scorer Bruno Fornaroli and the Socceroos' record goal scorer, Tim Cahill.


Did you know

We nearly saw Jermaine Jenas in sky blue?

With three last minute moves under his belt, the Premier League midfielder turned BBC pundit is no stranger to the stress of transfer deadline day. 

Agents and Jim White dominate proceedings, but how does the uncertainty and drama affect players? From medicals, not saying goodbye and nearly signing for City, Jenas' players' perspective is certainly worth a read.


"Unbelievable tekkers" is, I believe, the correct terminology here. 

As the tweeter rightly points out, this cat looks like it's just bent one round the wall and it's destined for the top corner. And we're big fans.
