Premier League - Oasis singer rocks up as City win

Tue, 01 May 00:31:00 2012

Rock star Liam Gallagher, one of Manchester City's staunchest fans, gave an impromptu press conference to amused reporters after City's 1-0 win over Manchester United took them to the top of the Premier League table.

2010-11 FA Cup - Final - Manchester City v Stoke City Liam Gallagher in the stands. - 0

Wearing sunglasses and beaming a huge smile, the often irascible former frontman of Oasis was in party mood, saying: "What do you want to know lads? ... top of the league. Well done City."

He said he spent some time with Diego Maradona during the match - Maradona was there to watch his son-in-law Sergio Aguero play for City - and then joked that he loved City manager Roberto Mancini.

"I love him, he's so cool, he's almost as cool as me," he said to ripples of laughter.

City's Belgian captain Vincent Kompany, who headed the only goal of the game to give City their victory, walked into the media room where Gallagher hugged him, shouting, "Viva La Belgium" before walking off with his arm around the player.

Oasis, who have since broken up, proclaimed their affinity to City at the time albums such as Definitely Maybe and (What's The Story) Morning Glory were riding high in the charts, while City were languishing in the lower divisions.

The band, formed by Gallagher and his brother Noel who wrote most of their songs, once played at City's old Maine Road Stadium in 1996, long before Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan bought the club and pumped in a fortune to turn them into contenders for England's No.1 club.

  2. Henry Ore, don't you mean psychology? Psychosis­ is what Fergie showed in his rant.

  3. I've been a supporter of Man Utd all my life but­ have little animosity towards City (not a manc). While­ Man City are my rival club their performance throughout­ the season has been terrific and while it hurts to say­ it, they deserve the title in my mind. Man Utd dropped­ the ball far too often, especially last couple of weeks­ for me to feel that they genuinely earned to be called­ champions again.

    From Jimmy, on Tue 1 May 21:05
  15. He's a cockney now anyway! I used to worship him­ when i was a little scally manc! Now i've got older­ and (hopefully) more mature, he just seems like a right­ twonk! I live in the land of the sheep shaggers now­ (lincoln) And thank god the likes of liam are far­ behind me! But i LOVE manchester still after all this­ time! I just don't miss the twonks like liam!

  16. 195....afraid not. Manc born and bred. Maybe I dont­ know much about football, you could be right, what I do­ know though is that I took my Swedish girlfirends­ father to city vs burnley a while back (he suddenly­ became a city fan, soon be a few cockney blues too i­ should imagine), there were obvious protestations from­ me (sorry your city, it means I complained, sorry­ possibly still confused, its means I dint like it n­ fat) . City went 2 down and fans left !!! We were then­ treated to 2 'die hard' blues telling our­ guests they used to sit there smoking crack. Somehow­ the citeh fans thought this was impressive. My guests,­ myself and the children sitting round them didn't.­ Oh yeah, classy. Your an embarrassment....and you know­ it !
