• Gerónimo Rulli Has Earned His Shot At Man City’s Goalkeeping Gloves

    Perhaps the most curious aspect of Manchester City’s goalkeeping merry-go-round is that the most promising of the goalkeepers they had on their books last summer is the one who hasn’t made an appearance for them this season. In fact, Gerónimo Rulli has never played a game for the Sky Blues and has only ever been on their books for a matter of days. ...

  • Arsenal’s Stability Offers A Refreshing Alternative To The Premier League Norm

    Arsene Wenger has been the manager of Arsenal for over 20 years. He leads a list previously topped by Sir Alex Ferguson, and stands out as the only legitimately ‘long-term’ manager in the league. In second place and third place, with a difference of just 17 days, are Eddie Howe and Sean Dyche. Both managers have been with their clubs for over four years. In fourth is Mark Hughes, the last in the list to have been in the same job for over three years. ...

  • Stanley Bowles: The Maverick Baggio Who Deserves Our Thanks

    Alzheimer’s is a vindictive disease that erodes a person’s cognitive functioning. It steals its sufferer of his or her memories, their awareness of the world and the people who matter in it. Last week I discovered that Stanley Bowles – the maverick Baggio of English muddy football fields – has succumbed to this awful condition and sadness swept over me. ...

  • Morning Editorial: Manchester City Are A Greater Challenge Than Assumed For Guardiola

    Following Manchester City’s 1-1 draw to Liverpool, Pep Guardiola was surprisingly open and honest about his feelings toward the club. The 46-year-old even told journalists after the game on Sunday: "It is one of the happiest days of my career as a manager. I am so proud,” which was out of character to say the least. But what we witnessed was, perhaps for the first time, Pep truly committing himself to City’s cause, after realising what an exciting job he has on his hands. ...

  • Manchester City Face A Defensive-Midfield Dilemma This Summer

    It all seems forgotten now but, for a large part of this season, Yaya Toure appeared surplus to requirements at Manchester City. The public feud between Pep Guardiola and agent Dimitri Seluk was genuine but suspicions remained that it was a convenient veneer for the former Bayern Munich head coach. As their time together at Barcelona had demonstrated, Guardiola just didn’t fancy Toure, or so the logic ran. But, now, Toure has returned to play a key role in the City side. He is, ahead of anyone else, the man who sits in front of the back four, starting things off and dictating what happens ahead of him. ...

  • The Story Of Manchester City’s Pete The Badge: When The BBC Cyberbullied A Pensioner

    This is a story about the BBC cyber-bullying a 71 year old football supporter nicknamed ‘Pete the Badge’. This is a story about a fan-base and forum drawing a line in the sand and demanding accountability. This is a story that exposes the inherent dangers attached whenever old media attempts to mimic the looser codes and morals of new media and consequently come horrendously unstuck. ...

  • Why Manchester City Flop Wilfried Bony Should Look To Edin Dzeko For Inspiration

    Contrary to the song there are actually two Edin Dzekos, or at least there were at Manchester City during his four and a half year spell at the Etihad. The first incarnation of the Bosnian proved to be a powerful presence up front for the Blues, scoring for fun and regularly putting in performances that hinted there was a complete centre-forward bubbling beneath the surface. At times he was phenomenal, such as his perfect hat-trick (plus another one for good measure) against Spurs in 2011. In other periods he somewhat reluctantly became lauded as a ‘supersub’, a brooding match-winner on the bench who deserved more game-time. ...
