Manuel plans Magpie murder in Manchester

If somebody said Manchester City had every chance of topping the Premier League – at least seven points clear of Chelsea – going into the second international break of the season, who in sky blue, wouldn’t have taken it? By the same token, how many City fans would have turned down the prospect of a historic Champions League win on German soil and being well poised in a very challenging […]

City tune up The Toon...now bring on Barca!

Manchester City’s past and present personnel combined to brighten Manuel Pellegrini’s immediate future, as his team strives to retain their Premier League title. The Etihad superstars of the here and now duly murdered Newcastle’s visiting Magpies – as they have done for nearly a decade – after the unheralded City youngsters of yesteryear did their former employers a massive modern day favour. A five star showing and a 5-0 roasting […]

Just the usual please – Newcastle Utd 0 Man City 2

It was emotional, it was clinical and ultimately it was routine as the Champions of England gave a despairing Newcastle United what they give them every season without fail…absolutely nothing. The Toon Army must hate the sight of Manchester City. The Magpies’ definition of ‘typical City’ is a team that takes maximum points game after game after game and remains undefeated in 17 consecutive Barcodes versus Blue Mancs encounters. Manuel […]

City go for 10 out of 10 - Newcastle Utd v Man City

There’s lies, damned lies and statistics, but if Manchester City could have chosen their opening fixture opponents Manuel Pellegrini would most likely have plumped for the Magpies. An away win for the Champions today would make it 10 wins out of the last 10 Premier League games against Newcastle, stretching City’s unbeaten league run to 16 when facing The Toon. Pellegrini kicked off his managerial career in England with a […]

Pathetic Pardew loses more than points - NEWCASTLE UTD 0 MAN CITY 2

Newcastle United lost more than just three points when they went down to a ninth consecutive Premier League loss to Manchester City. They lost the respect and empathy of Manchester City fans thanks to their foul-mouthed low life of a manager, the dirty play of their team and the scurrilous cat-calls of their fans, directed at a stricken Samir Nasri. Admittedly the Barcode followers probably don’t give a flying ‘wotsit’, but […]

City go Sunday shopping - NEWCASTLE UTD v MAN CITY

The stripes are a different colour and they’re just 10.49 miles apart as the crow flies, but as far as Manchester City are concerned Newcastle and Sunderland are polar opposites. Trips to Tyneside are usually an illuminating experience for the Sky Blues. They haven’t lost at St James’ Park – The Citadel of the North East – since Michael Owen, latterly the ‘charismatic voice’ of BT Sport, scored the winner […]

NEWCASTLE UTD 0 MANCITY 2 - Carry on Costel?

So that’s two vital away wins in two cup competitions on consecutive Wednesday nights for Manchester City. Football wisdom has it that it’s results and not performances that count. It’s just as well then for Manuel Pellegrini. Last week in Moscow it was a case of watching paint dry – literally as well as metaphorically – as the Russians gave the dreadful Khimiki Arena turf a makeover. City then laboured […]

NEWCASTLE UTD v MAN CITY – Costel’s lucky number 13?

Having suffered painful  Premier League ‘executions’ on Sunday, both Newcastle United and Manchester City will fight to avoid further ‘Capital’ punishment when they battle for solace and secondary silverware tonight. Cruelly denied a share of the spoils against Sunderland and Chelsea respectively – more so City than the Toon – this clash of the last 16 in the Capital One Cup, affords both clubs an opportunity to exorcise the demons […]

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. […]

MAN CITY 4 NEWCASTLE UTD 0 - Sacre bleu Samir

Easter is a time for resurrection, rebirth and second comings, but a Man-of-the-Match performance from Samir Nasri has probably arrived too late to save his Manchester City career. For once it was magnifique as opposed to merde, from the French maestro as he displayed the guile, creativity and heart of which he is capable and why Roberto Mancini shelled out £24m two summers ago. Nasri was the pivotal player as […]
