The Sanchez Dilemma - Blue or Red? Integrity or Avarice?

Manchester City fans are tired of the ‘will he/won’t he’ Alexis Sanchez signing saga. Thankfully it’s now make your mind up time for the choosy Chilean after he was left out of the Arsenal squad for today’s 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth. Arsene Wenger laughingly said Sanchez was ‘vague’ so he ‘…left him at home’ – but where will Alexis next call home?  It seems to boil down to whether Sanchez […]

Pep's 5 words on City's 4 trophy target

Unlike some of his peers, Pep Guardiola does not indulge in what the media like to call ‘Mind Games’ when, in reality, they amount to nothing more than pernicious, petulant, posturing from those who can’t match the sheer genius of the Manchester City manager. Guardiola is the very personification of integrity in a game – an industry – riddled by corruption, deceit and an all-encompassing sense of self-serving. So, when […]

'Tis the season to be jolly...and has been since August for Pep's City

Christmas is nearly here and folk will be full of festive cheer telling us that it ‘Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la la la…’ Well they’re a bit late to the party – Manchester City fans have been enjoying a helluva ‘jolly season’ since August 12th and there’s no sign of the party ending anytime soon. It’s supposed to be a time […]

City should show Pep the door

As the longest winless streak in Pep Guardiola’s managerial career continues, Manchester City should show him the door. City owner Sheikh Mansour, Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and CEO Ferran Soriano need to point Pep towards the Etihad exit and emphasise – in no uncertain terms – there isn’t a hope in hell of them letting him go through it now, or ever, if they have their way. The Catalan genius […]

Tuned in City tune up United

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City were pitch perfect and on a superior wavelength as they left Manchester United quivering in the shockwaves of a sky blue derby day win. Mourinho’s mob were left twiddling with the knobs of an old wireless, while Pep’s men sent out a high frequency signal, one that will be received with trepidation by the rest of the Premier League. City’s players have attuned remarkably quickly to the carefully crafted football choreography […]

Calm down calm down calm down - City’s message to Rooney

City won the Manchester derby 2-1, so there’s no way the following observations on England and Manchester United’s captain can be categorised as ‘sour grapes’ or the grunts of a sore loser. Wayne Rooney is thoroughly despicable on the field of play, at each and every sky blue versus red derby day. He is a cheating, conniving and manipulative ‘has-been’ who, as his once great talents recede quicker than his hairline, resorts more and more […]

Pep set to make a spectacle of Mourinho and Clattenburg

As the world fixes its gaze on the Theatre of Screams and the Manchester derby becomes the focus of Planet Football, it’s ironic that a mysterious visual impairment could yet be a key factor in the clash of Red versus Sky Blue. The nigh on blind Andre Marriner won’t be visible at The Swamp as El Mancunico unfolds to a global audience of umpteen millions, but the results of his […]

You’re an embarrassment - The Madness of Mourinho - Man City 3 Chelsea 0

The polarization between two managers and their clubs was never more prominent than in the aftermath of Manchester City’s stylish 3-0 demolition of Chelsea. It was a day that saw the Premier League champions lose more than the three points on offer. They lost their composure on the field but, more tellingly, thanks to the antics of Jose Mourinho and the official Chelsea website, they lost their dignity and defiled […]

City aim for high five advantage & £100m splash before deadline day!

Crisp, stylish and uncluttered – Manchester City’s opening night performance of 2015/16 was a sublime reflection of their new sky blue & white strip – a subtle combination of retro elegance and contemporary flair. Of course first impressions can be deceptive, as a re-invigorated Yaya Toure would readily testify. The giant Ivorian’s brace was later reduced to just the one stunning strike – courtesy of David Silva’s passive heel – […]

Chelsea’s ‘Special Coach’ – park it over there mate!

Jose Mourinho has an obvious affinity with large passenger transport vehicles. He is very adept at parking buses and, in his capacity as a coach, the removal of his teeth would ordinarily accommodate 52 seats. But for once – sadly, probably just the once – Jose is keeping his poisonous ‘Norf & Sarf’ shut. The self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ is in a strop and seeking to perpetuate the myth that his […]
