Manuel has no ideas in dunce's corner - Man City 1 Hull City 1

Trust, like reputation, is a priceless virtue. A highly valued but incredibly vulnerable commodity, it accumulates over a prolonged period. Conversely, it’s always at risk if new realities crash in and established perceptions are swept away. Manuel Pellegrini now finds himself at a crossroads in his brief, but hitherto highly successful time as manager of Manchester City. The trust and belief in the affable, professorial-like Chilean is under scrutiny like […]

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 […]

Sky blue delight at reds at night - HULL CITY 0 MAN CITY 2

Manchester City came roaring back into Premier League title contention with a gutsy 2-0 win on a day that few could have imagined would ever dawn. Not only did City start to bridge the yawning points chasm between themselves and Chelsea, they, like the rest of the football world, were rendered gobsmacked by five words from the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ when Jose muttered: ‘I prefer not to speak!’ Well just […]

City need to roar back after pain in Spain - HULL CITY v MAN CITY

From Barcelona to Hull – it’s a cultural shift of seismic proportions – but Manchester City must retain their focus …win the game and stride on to become champions. It’ll be at least another 15 months before City can fulfil their Champions League ‘Holy Grail’, but only 12 games to see if they can be crowned Champions of England, for the second time in three years. City’s inspirational leader Vincent […]

MAN CITY 2 HULL CITY 0 - Negredo attracts the 'ire' of the tigers

It wasn’t pretty or overly entertaining, but in the end it was enough as Manchester City ambushed Hull’s Tigers and bagged three vital points, putting their title ambitions back on track. Wounded by the rabid criticism following the Cardiff defeat, City were expected to return to winning ways against Premier League newbies, after all, it had been three years and 106 games since the men in sky blue suffered back-to-back […]

MAN CITY v HULL CITY - City to earn stripes against Tigers

On the basis that one swallow doesn’t make a summer then one bluebird flying high, shouldn’t mean a long, cold winter lies ahead for Manchester City. Yes, the defeat at Cardiff City was unexpected – some would argue unacceptable – but the knee-jerk over reaction by the twitchy naysayers among City’s support is equally unpalatable. The more shallow among the sky blue brethren went into social media meltdown in the […]
