Yaya hits the Top 20 - MAN CITY 5 FULHAM 0

Yaya Toure – arguably the most complete midfield player in the Premier League – delivered a virtuoso performance in an overwhelmingly one-sided affair between what could be the best and the worst of top flight English football. Manchester City’s Ivorian colossus cast a giant shadow of doom over hopeless Fulham with his first ever hat-trick, comprising two penalties and a now familiar Yaya wonder-strike from 30 yards.

It’s all focus on Fulham – football genius David Moyes can wait!

Roberto Mancini’s men delivered an accomplished, if not exhilarating, win over a lacklustre Fulham who couldn’t muster a single save from the redundant Joe Hart. Truth be told, a Tesco beefburger carried more threat than ex-Red Dimitar Berbatov and his team mates, […]

Roberto Mancini can reflect on a very satisfying start to 2013, with a 100% win record and the spectre of Pep Guardiola being laid to rest in respect of the Manchester City manager’s job. Ill informed media speculation proved to be just that, as the ex-Barcelona boss signed a three-year deal to go to Bayern Munich, thereby ending rumours of a summer switch to the Etihad. Despite intense hype that […]
