3 is City's magic number - MAN UTD 0 MAN CITY 3

He declined the invitation – he had no desire to acknowledge the fans. Anyway, his hands were pre-occupied with his face buried deep within. Nonetheless the chorus boomed out unabated: ‘Moysey, Moysey give us a wave, Moysey give us a wave…’ as the bank of 3,000 visiting fans gave it LARGE to ‘The Chosen One’. It was bad enough seeing the last vestiges of fight and pride dissipate from his […]

City to chip away Chelsea’s advantage - MAN UTD v MAN CITY

If you’re an optimist having ‘games in hand’ is as good as having I.O.U notes – it’s only a matter of time before you call them in – money in the bank so to speak or, more appropriately, points in the bag.

As Manuel […]

Ok, novice isn’t quite appropriate given the vast experience accrued by Messrs Moyes and Pellegrini in top flight football, be it in England, Spain, Argentina, Chile and, would you believe Ecuador? But if we were playing […]

EVERTON 2 MAN CITY 0 - Toffees stick it to City

Roberto Mancini had a headache from the moment Yaya Toure reported unfit with a migraine. It didn’t get any better when Marouane ‘Microphone Head’ Fellaini and his mates pumped up the volume and blasted Manchester City’s last lingering title hopes to smithereens. 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 […]
