F-word is key to sizzling Sergio’s success - Man City 4 Spurs 1

Sergio Aguero is arguably the finest footballer in the 120-year history of Manchester City and, on present form, the Argentine pocket rocket is getting better and better. The word ‘better’ works on two levels in relation to Super Sergio – his scintillating scoring exploits and, perhaps more tellingly, his general health and well being. His four goal haul against Spurs confirmed him as City’s record goalscorer in the age of […]

MPs happy to be judged on actions rather than words! Man City v Spurs

Forget manifestos and election slogans, the Premier League’s top two MPs aren’t interested in votes on Saturday lunchtime…just three precious points. Manuel Pellegrini and Mauricio Pochettino both want to be first past the post as Manchester City look to hold on to their overwhelming majority of recent times, having won six of the last seven PL encounters, including four on the bounce at the Etihad. It’s a massive turnaround for […]

Why are City always the villains? Aston Villa 0 Man City 2

When Sir Baconface’s bunch used to score late goals to win with monotonous regularity, the Manure-fawning media told us it was ‘The United way’ – it was in the Swamp-dwellers DNA. When Moanrinho’s lot dominate a game, dictate the play, sometimes park the bus but emerge victorious, it’s a testimony to Maureen’s tactical genius and Chelsea’s patience and professionalism. When Manchester City bag a brace of beauties, have 68% possession, […]

City want Top 20 victory over Villa - Aston Villa v Man City

It’s a return to the muck and bullets of domestic football for Manchester City after the mid-week disappointment of the failure to repel invading Roman forces. Whereas AS Roma did an effective Italian job in limiting City to a 1-1 draw on home soil, the Sky Blues often find the fields of Birmingham to be very fertile ground. Last season’s shock 3-2 reversal was far from keeping with the norm […]

The Engineer & The Roman spanner - Man City 1 AS Roma 1

Engineer Manuel Pellegrini will have to retrieve a bloody big spanner from his machine if his Champions League blueprint for Manchester City is to stand any chance of success this season. Rudi Garcia’s Roman incursion force were as good as their French manager’s pre-match prophecy that they were to be ‘protagonists and not spectators’ – right to the point where City’s prospects of qualifying from Group E are now under […]

Manuel’s Self Preservation Society - Man City v AS Roma

Back in 1979 the Monty Python team asked, ‘What have the Romans ever done for us?’ The supposedly rhetorical question from the fictional ‘People’s Front of Judea’, drew unexpected answers in the hilarious film ‘Life of Brian’. The Romans who were being derided by John Cleese & Co had actually provided the Jews with the aqueduct, sanitation, roads, irrigation, medicine, education, wine, public baths, law & order and peace! Okay, […]

In the net as City fish out the points – Hull City 2 Man City 4

Edin the Executioner, Manuel the Engineer and Lampard the Eternal ensured Manchester City eventually eased to three precious points, in an ‘Ee bah gum’ northern encounter packed with twists and turns. It came as no surprise that the Champions raced into a two-goal lead over Hull City within 11 minutes, courtesy of a clinical finish from Sergio Aguero and a super-strike from Dzeko. What followed in a separate 11 minute […]

Let’s be Frank! - Hull City v Man City

Arsene’s whinging and Maureen’s continuing to moan about Manchester City, so it’s nice to confirm that Hypocrites United are still ever fearful of the Champions of England. Speaking of United, dear old Sir Baconface only started being ‘nice’ to Whinger when he perceived Arsenal were no longer a threat, so God forbid Arsenic and Moanrinho are ever overly pleasant about Pellegrini. You have to love the idiocy of Wenger’s press conferences when […]

Stefan swaps United for City...in a fashion

Stefan Haynes-Jones is the heartbeat of the United defence, but like most of us he dreams of wearing the sky blue of Manchester City and taking to the field on a Premier League match day. Unlike most of us, 10-year old Stefan has done just that, after winning a Manchester City Junior Cityzens competition to be the club’s official mascot, away to Arsenal earlier this month. He swapped his usual […]

City fans back legal battle against UEFA Financial Fair Play

Blue-sky thinking relates to creative ideas that are not limited by convention or current beliefs, facilitating the stripping away of barriers, overcoming obstacles and confounding conformity. It’s a derivation on a theme, but Sky-blue thinking is not a million miles removed when addressing the vagaries and rank injustice perpetrated by the ridiculously titled UEFA Financial Fair Play rules. If ever there was a contradiction in terms FFP is it. It’s […]

Lampard in lost New York flight tickets mystery - Man City 7 Sheffield Wednesday 0

Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour and Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak were today trying to explain to ‘Super Frankie Lampard’ the mystery surrounding the loss of his flight tickets to JFK Airport in New York. City’s billionaire benefactor was also at a loss to fathom how all the luxurious 5 Star apartments overlooking Central Park had suddenly gone off the market, and Lampard’s ‘Green Card’ US work permit, had changed colour to sky […]

City out to net capital gain - Man City v Sheffield Wednesday

Manchester City embark on their first domestic cup campaign of the season against Wednesday on a Wednesday, conscious of the need to win and avoid a ‘mourn day’ Thursday. Manuel Pellegrini’s mantra of wanting to win every competition City enter is laudable, especially when so many Premier League managers are all too quick to send out a starting XI of fringe and youth team players. The very last thing the Chilean […]
