Sat on the coach at the Etihad, waiting for our cue to leave and it feels like the whole football world has conspired against Barnsley today.

Other clubs have bagged precious Championship points at the expense of our brief taste of Arabian soccer hospitality.

Those regular readers know that I rarely provide match reports and that remains the case today. Flitcroft's boys did very little to excite or make anything about this game memorable for the right reasons.

What will remain with me is having the opportunity to witness in person the stunning corporate takeover that's occurred at the very top of our national game. The whole distortion of the game in this respect is frightening.

The Pharoahs had the common man build his pyramids, to then have them gasp in wonder at the greatness of his achievement. City have their Sheikh!

We'll carry on our fight in the English Championship. Defeated, but not down!
