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 word ‘better’ works on two levels in relation to Super Sergio – his scintillating scoring exploits and, perhaps more tellingly, his general health and well being. His four goal haul against Spurs confirmed him as City’s record goalscorer in the age of […]

City want Top 20 victory over Villa - Aston Villa v Man City

It’s a return to the muck and bullets of domestic football for Manchester City after the mid-week disappointment of the failure to repel invading Roman forces. Whereas AS Roma did an effective Italian job in limiting City to a 1-1 draw on home soil, the Sky Blues often find the fields of Birmingham to be very fertile ground. Last season’s shock 3-2 reversal was far from keeping with the norm […]

In the net as City fish out the points – Hull City 2 Man City 4

Edin the Executioner, Manuel the Engineer and Lampard the Eternal ensured Manchester City eventually eased to three precious points, in an ‘Ee bah gum’ northern encounter packed with twists and turns. It came as no surprise that the Champions raced into a two-goal lead over Hull City within 11 minutes, courtesy of a clinical finish from Sergio Aguero and a super-strike from Dzeko. What followed in a separate 11 minute […]

Let’s be Frank! - Hull City v Man City

Arsene’s whinging and Maureen’s continuing to moan about Manchester City, so it’s nice to confirm that Hypocrites United are still ever fearful of the Champions of England. Speaking of United, dear old Sir Baconface only started being ‘nice’ to Whinger when he perceived Arsenal were no longer a threat, so God forbid Arsenic and Moanrinho are ever overly pleasant about Pellegrini. You have to love the idiocy of Wenger’s press conferences when […]

Lampard in lost New York flight tickets mystery - Man City 7 Sheffield Wednesday 0

Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour and Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak were today trying to explain to ‘Super Frankie Lampard’ the mystery surrounding the loss of his flight tickets to JFK Airport in New York. City’s billionaire benefactor was also at a loss to fathom how all the luxurious 5 Star apartments overlooking Central Park had suddenly gone off the market, and Lampard’s ‘Green Card’ US work permit, had changed colour to sky […]

The Song Remains the Same - Man City 1 Chelsea 1

A blues remix of a timeless classic proved to be top of the pops as ‘Super Frank, Super Frank, Super Frankie Lampard’ went straight to Number 1 at the Etihad Stadium. Blue was the colour, football was the game with Manchester City and Chelsea fans all together in singing Lampard’s name. Fair to say the Stamford Bridge legend and City new boy was feeling a ‘Whole Lotta Love’ as he […]

This time it's for real - Arsenal v Man City

When 13 men in sky blue and one in banana yellow masqueraded as the Champions of England on a sunny summer Sunday afternoon at Wembley, the travelling masses shrugged off a 3-0 embarrassment to Arsenal’s smoking guns. The 25,000 or so Manchester City fans consoled themselves knowing that the Community Shield didn’t really matter. It wasn’t a barometer for how the reigning champions would fare in the season that lay […]

Let's be Frank...

When David Villa and Frank Lampard signed up for New York City there was always a sneaking suspicion that one, or both, could find themselves wearing the sky blue of Manchester City, before heading off to the Big Apple. Villa fresh from Atletico Madrid’s La Liga title would have slipped in effortlessly with Manuel Pellegrini’s style, and would have been reunited with David Silva, his Spanish international and ex-Valencia team […]
