After the impressive 4-1 weekend demolition of Fulham, Man City roll into the Britannia Stadium to take on a Stoke team who have been on an impressive run of late. Stoke have won their last 3 matches (against West Brom, Liverpool and Birmingham) having previously lost 4 on the bounce.
City boss Mancini was under slight pressure before the Fulham game, with two successive 0-0 draws (against Man United and Birmingham) leading many to question his overly-cautious tactical approach. Everything in the garden would appear to be rosy again, but such …
Young Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson has been linked with Manchester City today in a lot of the press. He will probably make his England debut tonight, starting against France in the friendly match at Wembley.
Henderson has impressed greatly for Sunderland this season, with some commanding midfield displays and he looks to be a player who could develop into a Steven Gerrard ‘all action’ type, though he needs to add more goals to his game.
Manchester United boss Alex ferguson is a known admirer, but how much financial backing does he really …
Manchester City built on their hard earned point at White Hart Lane with a comprehensive and convincing win over Liverpool.
It’s not often that the reds make the short trip over to Manchester lacking passion and a sense of urgency, but these uncharacteristic traits displayed my Hodgson’s team should not take away anything from the blue’s dominance.
Mancini knows what it’s like to beat Roy Hodgson, his Fiorentina side beat Udinese, despite being a higher profile game, this still ended with the same outcome.
Yaya Toure started at the top end of the …
Having missed out on that all important Champions League spot last time out, Roberto Mancini will be hoping to go one better in 2011.
Having spent big again, it appears the Italian now has a fight on his hands to reduce his playing rosta before the end of the transfer window. However Jerome Boetang looks like a steal at £11m, and could give Wayne Bridge some much needed competition.
Yaya Toure joins his brother, although it will be interesting to see how Mancini keeps the likes of Viera, De Jong and Vincent …

This week has seen Roberto Mancini come under increasing pressure about his future as manger of Manchester City Football Club…… after just months in charge!
Will we ever learn that sacking a manager is just a brief moment of joy which brings the same sort of frustrations that were feeling now in the long run? We haven’t won a trophy in 34 years, that’s a fact. But, we haven’t given a manager a sustained period of time in charge of the club to try and end this baron spell. We have …
Hyperbole is an interesting word. Defined as an extreme exaggeration for emphasis, few could argue that it would be a hyperbole to describe the second leg of this Carling Cup tie, held at Old Trafford, as the biggest match in Manchester City‘s recent history. As would befit a Marks and Spencer advert, this is not just a Carling Cup tie, this is a Manchester derby, semi-final second leg Carling Cup tie.
Levels of anticipation, tension and anxiety have never been higher for any match in recent memory, with the close rivalry reaching …
