The Incredible Sulk

by on Feb.23, 2012, under Domestic Football

I have to say that I did burst out laughing when I read this story today. Last night when Manchester City dumped current holders Porto out of the Europa League, Porto’s knee jerk reaction was to lodge a formal complaint to UEFA over the chanting directed at their Brazilian striker Hulk. Now since racism has been thrown about like a Sainsburys bag in the wind of late, half the time with no actual evidence, so it would be easy from this headline that the same thing has occurred. Not in the slightest.

The Portuguese club are unhappy with City chanting “you’re not incredible” at Brazilian striker Hulk during City’s 4-0 win at the Etihad Stadium.

Porto claim the chants are unsporting towards Hulk and have called on UEFA to take action against City.

Ok so Hulk (left) LOOKS pretty tough, but a) I see no resemblence to Lou Ferrigno (right), and b) what sort of tough guy winces when you call him names?

Now sour grapes are one thing, and off the back of Porto being accused of making monkey noises at Yaya Toure and Mario Balotelli last week it would seem that they are trying to retaliate and accuse Manchester City of the same thing. Personally, I think that Man City’s chants are particularly funny if you ask me, plus unsporting is one thing, but this is just banter. And for someone who is on about £80,000 a week, complaining about hurt feelings is not even covered by the phrase f*cking pathetic. I really had to check my Outlook calendar to make sure it wasn’t April 1st! I couldn’t actually believe this is real. What next, he takes offence being called Lou Ferrigno? Man up for goodness sake.
