Manchester United Stroll to Victory

Manchester United Stroll to Victory

Robbie Savage on his BBC 606 Talkshow called Manchester City a "shambles". To have spent north of £500m in 4 years and be fielding Martin Demichelis and Jesus Navas he has a point. Even Raheem Sterling has been embarrassing of late, and that £49m piece of business looks very shrewd by Liverpool. The ghost of Pep Guardiola is weighing very heavily on this City squad and some cynics amongst the City fans are suggesting Pellegrini is purposely or spitefully ensuring …
Why Man City's Loss Against Liverpool Can Be Good For Them

Why Man City's Loss Against Liverpool Can Be Good For Them

How can a loss be any good for a team that has well..lost? Let alone the fact that this is title-favorites Manchester City who are quite ominous when it comes to playing at home. On Saturday, Manuel Pellegrini resigned to his chair watching his side get torn apart by a new look, revived, scarily intense Liverpool, a result and more so the performance, arguably the most surprising element of the weekend. To start with, Manchester City did have a few …

Manchester City vs Southampton Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

Manchester City host Southampton on Sunday in their last fixture of the season. The expectations have been so high at the club since the last few years that a 2nd place finish is believed to be a bad season for the previous champions. The club have been in rich form coming into this game, having won all of their last 5 fixtures. On the other hand, their guests for the evening, who are still in contention to finish a respectable …

Crystal Palace v Manchester City Preview | Team News, Stats and Key Men

Manchester City travel to Selhurst park on Saturday, the 7th of April for their 31st Premier League game of the season. While the club was seen as a title contenders a month ago, their waning form and not-so-dominant performances over the last few weeks have now made them title wannabes as they sit in the 4th place a point behind cross-town rivals Manchester United. A victory at Palace would ensure that they go above United as well as Arsenal, but that task is …

Tactical Review - Manchester City 1 Manchester United 0

PRE-MATCH The Manchester derby, one of the biggest games in English club football in recent years, returned for the 168th time. These two teams collectively have won each of the four Premier League titles since Chelsea won in 2009-10. When cash-flush City emerged as a Premier League heavyweight, the then United manager Sir Alex Ferguson dubbed them as the noisy neighbours. Since the Scot’s retirement, United have been on a decline of sorts while City have only been getting better. …
Why Fernando Will Help City In All Departments

Why Fernando Will Help City In All Departments

Viewing Manchester City in a rather pessimistic manner enables one to be able to pick up on miniscule features that are frequently overlooked by neutrals; despite an extremely impressive victory over Liverpool I was very frustrated with the lacklustre performance of Yaya Touré. From start to finish Touré strolled around the pitch in a brash manner simply assuming he could win the game without giving 100%. Touré would frequently receive the ball and attempt ridiculous long balls or attempt to …
Who Should Partner Kompany At Centre-Back?

Who Should Partner Kompany At Centre-Back?

After narrowly beating Liverpool to the Premier League title and winning the Capital One Cup, Manuel Pellegrini will be eager to emulate this success next season, and improve his side with some new additions to the squad. One area that has been identified as a weak point in the Man City team, is the centre-back position. Manchester City conceded 37 goals last season and got the second best defensive record in the league, which was only beaten by Chelsea who conceded …

Argentina v Bosnia & Herzegovina Preview | World Cup 2014

Argentina will kick off their World Cup campaign in earnest on Sunday night when they take on the tournament debutants, Bosnia & Herzegovina in Rio de Janeiro. Alejandro Sabella’s side will be looking to start the group stage with a win and move one step closer to the knockout phase. However, Bosnia & Herzegovina will certainly not make it easy for them despite their lowly status in the tournament. Players such as Miralem Pjanic and Edin Dzeko have experience of …
