Stephen Ireland blasts Manchester City after leaving for Aston Villa

Whilst I don't think it's the most tasteful thing to snipe at a former club, I get the distinct impression that Ireland is quite a different character from Richard Dunne (who left City last year to join Villa in similar circumstances; Dunne was a makeweight for Gareth Barry), and holding his counsel when pissed off is not really what he does. And to be honest, he is well within his right to feel pissed off at the way the club that he spent a good deal of his career with has disintegrated into a circus.

Ahhh, he is such a legend!! :) Last season was very disappointing for him in so many ways, but I love that he doesn't dwell on past woes, only looks forward to the future. And I think, from interviews, he really does come across as the "Mr anti-Chelsea" to JT's "Mr Chelsea" in many ways, shy, calm, intelligent. Love him.
