Spurs Topple Manchester City

Spurs Topple Manchester City

A decisive game between 2nd placed Spurs and 4th place City was irretrievably affected by a diabolical decision by referee Mark Clattenburg.

Sterling had his back to the ball and it was clearly non-intentional. Harry Kane confidently tucked away the penalty on the 53rd minute. City had chances prior to that, with Aguero missing …
Aston Villa All Washed Up?

Aston Villa All Washed Up?

It never rains, but it pours for Villa fans this season and at St James’ Park the downpour was more than a metaphorical one.
