Oh Oh 7 - Sterling is spectre of doom for City's opponents

Sterling is on the rise at Manchester City like never before in a week of ‘firsts’ for the Premier League leaders. Raheem Sterling’s maiden hat-trick in senior football, came just 72 hours after the club posted its first annual profit since the Abu Dhabi takeover seven years ago. The stock of both player and his employers continues on an upward trajectory, following City’s 5-1 demolition of Bournemouth, and Sheikh Mansour’s […]

Time to soil Saints' clean sheets - Southampton v Man City

Four wins in a demanding quartet of games would go a long way to decontaminating a season that many believe could yet become a toxic wasteland for Manchester City. Having lost their grip on the League Cup, they have fallen nine points behind domestic table-toppers Chelsea and progression in the Champions League depends on a do-or-die gladiator clash with the Romans next month. Up next are Southampton and Sunderland away, […]

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 folk God of the river that abuts Fulham’s quaint and historic Craven Cottage home, was about as much use to Rene Meulensteen’s men as King Canute, when it came to holding back a tide […]

Six or sex...it's just as satisfying - MAN CITY 6 SPURS 0

The lifelong Tottenham fan had never been to the Etihad before. He was there for the first time at the last minute instigation of the Manchester City fanatic with whom he’d forged a friendship on Twitter. Meeting for the first time, the courteous Spurs supporter predicted his team would be roundly stuffed…6-0 was the prediction. His ‘hosts’ – thinking the visitor was simply being polite or, at best, covering his […]

MAN CITY v NEWCASTLE UTD – High flying City want PL title back

Manchester City were resoundingly stuffed by a bunch of Canaries at the end of last season as their goose was well and truly under cooked with an insipid defence of their Premier League crown. Now, under new management, City can do their best ‘phoenix from the ashes’ impression by killing off a murder of Magpies as the curtain goes up on a hugely promising new campaign at the Etihad Stadium.
