Yaya Toure is Still an Important Player for Man City

Yaya Toure is Still an Important Player for Man City

The Ivorian was left in the shadows following Pep Guardiola's arrival but he seems to have done enough to fit his way back into the side. Yaya Toure was involved in a lengthy stand off with the former Barcelona manager after his agent made negative comments about Guardiola and refused to deliver an apology. Toure had been outcasted because he wasn't showing enough effort and determination in training and it wasn't until mid-November when he returned to the frame, making …

Are Manchester City Under-Staffed Up Front?

When you think Manchester City, you think rich. They are a club with almost unlimited resources and a burning desire to succeed at domestically, as well as in Europe, who also happen to be guided by a superstar manager.  Indeed, when you look at their squad it's clear that they are literally bursting at the seams with talent.  But all that talent is packed primarily in two areas – midfield and defense. If you are new to Premier League football and …

Ilkay Gündogan to lead a City revolution

According to the Dortmund based publication Ruhr Nachrichten, Manchester City fans can start to get excited because the recruiting of Borussia Dortmund and Germany midfield star Ilkay Gündogan is a near formality. They understand that an agreement between representatives of Manchester City and Gündogan is in place and all that remains is for the two clubs to agree a fee, believed to be in the region of €25-30m, which is currently around £19.9-23.9m.

Manchester City vs Newcastle United | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Newcastle United will be fighting relegation hard, but the game against Manchester City can prove to be intimidating to that thought, as Sergio Aguero coming to St James' Park will be looking to terrorise the Magpies once more and continue his scintillating form on Tuesday when the teams clash at Tyneside. Newcastle won their last with a 3-0 score-line over Swansea City. The victory kept the Magpies two points behind the Sunderland and pulled them within three of Norwich City, who …

Flanagan set his marker early with a robust challenge on Sterling. Pellegrini was without Yaya Toure through injury and he brought Joe Hart back into the side. The game …
What will Manchester City really look like under Pep?

What will Manchester City really look like under Pep?

I’ve seen some absolute nonsense over the past week from ex-pros, sharing their thoughts on how the Manchester City under Pep Guardiola might look next season. First up, was Danny Murphy claiming that David Silva is not a Guardiola-type player! Excuse me, David Silva not a Guardiola-type player, really? I’m sorry, but if you were to identify which players currently in the Manchester City squad are archetypical for Guardiola’s preferred style of play, David Silva would have to be in …

City Roll the Dice with Pep Disclosure

"Oh Romeo Romeo wherefore art  thou Romeo" this could be translated to "Pep Pep wherefore art thou Pep" with the confirmed knowledge Pep was coming to the Premier League since his statement in December. Manuel Pellegrini chose an opportune time to out the best kept secret in the Premier League, disclosing Pep Guardiola is replacing him in June at Manchester City.

Barkley Impresses City as Everton Exit Cup Feeling Blue

Everton should have every right to feel hard done to as they exited the League Cup at The Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night. Replays have shown that the ball had gone out of play before Raheem Sterling set up Kevin de Bruyne to score what Roberto Martinez called the key goal of the tie. But although luck has certainly played a part of late - City’s equaliser from Fernandinho and Jordan Ayew’s winner for Swansea on Saturday both came via …
