SPURS v MAN CITY - Ade pep talk aids Mancini

Emmanuel Adebayor is about as much use as a one-legged man at an ar*e-kicking competition nowadays, but he does do a rather nice line in pre-match motivational speeches – for the opposition. The talkative Togan has been busy running his mouth this week claiming his ex-employers, Manchester City, lack team spirit and, at the first hint of adversity, the players start arguing and bickering on the field. Obviously Ade must be […]

MAN UNITED 1 MAN CITY 2 - Champion City

The Reds came to party, arrogance overflowing spitting vitriol, venom and spite, vowing to silence the upstart noisy neighbours and hail a ‘Glory Glory Man United’ celebratory night. Fergie spewed aspirations of humiliating the reigning champions with a record Premier League points winning margin, as the Old Trafford banners proclaimed ‘Aguerooo-noooo…’ – the Manure faithful making light of that painful, fateful day last May.

Once again City are left desolate and defeated by an Everton side who have the hex on the Etihad outfit… and probably will have until Arma’bleedin’geddon brings a merciful end […]

MAN CITY 5 BARNSLEY 0 - Tevez in the fast lane

That was 23 months ago, before Roberto Mancini brought the curtain down on 35 success starved years and started to deliver annual silverware to City’s trophy cabinet. It was therefore somewhat ironic that […]

MAN CITY 4 LEEDS UNITED 0 - City edge to Wembley with Sergio supershow

For saying it was the War of the Roses, Leeds United offered petal garlands rather than a thorny fight as they were pruned, plucked and deadheaded by a resurgent Manchester City. Whereas the team from Yorkshire were as threatening as garden gnome with a limp fishing line City went at their trans-Pennine opponents with the football equivalent of razor sharp secateurs, cutting them down to size with brutal ferocity. Neil […]
