Joe Hart can’t catch a break. Merely weeks ago, Hart was enjoying his life as Manchester City’s number 1 in preseason only to find out that Pep Guardiola can’t stand him and wants to get rid of him as soon as possible.
When Pep wants you out, your departure will become imminent and the top English shot stopper (for the time being) made his way to Torino.
Since Hart’s swift departure from Manchester, the Citizens have won their opening four premier league matches, just won the Manchester Derby at Old Trafford, and head into Champions League play at the top of the Premier League.
Poor, poor Joe Hart.
Things just from bad to worse for the once decent goalkeeper, who had the worst start to his Torino career.
First off, the bloke wasn’t even on the team sheet. His cousin, John Hart, actually got the start, leaving Joe on the bench again.

Honest mistake by his new employers as his full name is Charles Joseph John Hart. But no wonder he goes by Joe Hart, must’ve gotten teased on the schoolyard for that damn name.
Things managed to go from bad to worse as they almost always do and John Hart produced one hell of a gaff.
Hart attempted to punch and misjudged the flight of the cross leaving him in no man’s land and allowing the ball to be touched in first time by Andrea Masiello on the back post.

Torino went on the lose the match 2-1 after they conceded a late penalty that Joe Hart could do nothing to stop.
And then Pep Guardiola rubbed salt in the wounds of the loanee in his post match comments regarding the terribly shaky performance of Claudio Bravo in the Manchester Derby.
Claudio had one of the best performances I’ve ever seen. When you make a situation for the goal – after that he continued to play in our build-up and [went] for other long balls to pick them up.
Pep, were we watching the same fucking game?
Bravo was clumsy and rash in his debut in a Man $hitty jersey and underserving of the praise from his new manager.
When Joe Hart has a couple not so great appearances, he get sent out on loan to Torino, a personal hell. When Bravo does it, he’s rewarded with praise in the media.
Where do you get off, Pep?
