The Asylum is the center of all activity on The Outhouse.

It's all here in one place. Join the insanity!
@ Kolarov's expression. I doubt he drank it for real..it could've been piss. But Szcezesny's been crazy entertaining thanks to his interviews and antics. Great character.
I bet Viera regrets that interview where he called Utd desperate for bringing back Scholes. It was his goal that was the nail in the coffin for City yesterday when he bumped us into the safe zone for the rest of the match.
Viera has a history of running his mouth off and being made to look foolish for it that dates back to his days at the Arse. Honestly, though, between Mancini, Viera and Platt, Man City's failure to deal with Fergie's psychological one-upmanship has rivalled Kevin Keegan's famous and beautiful meltdown when Newcastle failed to win the Premiership.
Few things for me are worse than Man Utd winning the league, but on this occasion I'm glad if they win it over Man City. You can't buy the league and this yet again proves that a collection of expensive players do not make a team and you need a team to win the league.
Honestly though, I think Tevez has to shoulder the brunt of the blame for Man City's faultering season. His antics surely had an effect on the players, and regardless of what they say to the cameras seeing him back in the dressing room after essentially saying f-you to the team, fans, owners, managers must make them think WTF is up with that. Equally how can Mancini take a tough line with Balotelli when he failed to follow through on his stance with Tevez. I hope Nasri (I'm an Arsenal fan) is happy with his choice. "That green grass over there wasn't quite so green after all was it Sam?"
The only thing better that could complete the league for me is if Tottenham finish 4th, Chelsea win the Champions League and finish 5th and thus nullify Tottenham's claim for a Champions League spot.
Wow, Reading's late run has been an amazing thing to see. For most of this season, it's seemed like first place in the Championship was Southampton's to win. Now it looks like reading is the odds on favourite to finish in the top spot.
