Bizarre: Man City and Newcastle make it a week not to forget...

Last week Manchester City shocked just about everyone with the goings on at Bramall Lane, but few should have been that surprised at the result.

However, FA Cup ties against the likes of Sheffield United away are rarely easy - the Blades have knocked out the Red Devils in the not too distant past. But losing because of a bunch of balloons could only happen to City, surely?

Perhaps the biggest question of all is what were the City fans doing taking balloons to a Championship club in the first place? Visiting fans, had according to at least one City supporter on fan site embarrassed the club: "In taking balloons to Sheffield, we looked like a non-league club on our big day out".

As if the sight of Michael Balloon, sorry Ball, wasn't bizarre enough came the news that Dennis Wise was to join Keegan at Newcastle. Surely nobody outside of Mike Ashley's inner circle would have dreamt that could ever happen?

Keegan wasted no time in showing who is going to be the boss when he made it clear that the former Leeds manager will report to him. This double-act could turn out to be like watching the Krankies in Panto... "he's behind you Kev". The show must go on and on...
