Where has it gone wrong for Manchester City?

April 10, 2012

After the weekends results it seems almost certain that the Premier League title is heading to Old Trafford to give United their 20th title. In Sunday’s earlier game, United defeated QPR 2-0 after being given a fortuitous penalty decision which saw QPR skipper Shaun Derry sent off. In the later kick-off at the Emirates, a […] […]

Can Tevez clinch city the title?

March 29, 2012

Last week Carlos Tevez returned to action for Manchester City for the first time in six months, and set up Samir Nasri’s vital winner as Roberto Mancini’s men beat Chelsea 2-1. With City a goal behind, Mancini called on the Argentine to enter the field after 66 minutes. It was the first City appearance for Tevez since […] […]

Why Manchester City are well equipped to win the Premier League

February 28, 2012

On these pages yesterday there was a spectacularly ill-thought-out piece suggesting that Manchester City had no chance of winning this year’s Premier League. The author’s reasoning?

Carlos Tevez has always made a name for himself in the media eye, be it from switching his allegiance from the red to blue side of Manchester, or deciding to go on a three month hiatus because he felt “mistreated” at Manchester City.

City Slickers II hot for the rest!

July 21, 2009

Last season I made the inspired prediction that Spurs would crack the top 4 and qualify for the Champions League. After watching them take around 23 matches to get their first point, I realised that my ability to forsee in football was still pretty bloody ropey. Previous failures included tipping Craig Bellamy to win European Footballer of the Year […]

Tevez can’t Make a tackle and Ronaldo can’t take a tackle

There I was, sat on the couch mulling over the Chelsea/Newcastle game and thinking what to write about this week when Aston Villa v Manchester United came on the box and my prayers were answered. […]
