Easy win in Manchester Derby


An easy 3-0 win for City in the Manchester derby on Tuesday night kept up the push for the Premier League title.  Dzeko scored two goals, the first after only 43 seconds, and a third was added by Yaya Toure late on in the match.  The night was summed up for United with the fantastic picture of David Silva leaving Patrice Evra for dead!  It seems to me the whole footballing world is rejoicing at United's demise, even if it is for a season or two.  The stewards were deployed after the match to 'guard' the 'The Chosen One' banner in case irate United fans attempted to pull it down!

Hull 0 - 2 City - 15 March 2014


A very eventful match at Hull on Saturday saw City win 2-0, even though they were down to ten men for 80 minutes after Kompany's undeserved sending off.  Goals from Silva and Dzeko sealed the win, which was made even better by Chelsea losing at Villa Park.  Hull's George Boyd tried a spectacular dive in a desperate bid to win a penalty, but will probably get an FA ban instead, as it looked as though he spat in Hart's face in the row afterwards.  Liverpool also won 3-0 at Old Trafford today!

League Cup 2014

Here's some more pictures from the League Cup Final 2014, the 'only' success this year, as Chelsea have already won the Premier League according to media experts!

Blue March

A very disappointing few days started with City being knocked out of the FA Cup by Wigan on Sunday. Tonight City were knocked out of the Champions League with a 2-1 defeat in Barcelona, having already lost the first leg 2-0 in Manchester.  Hopefully City will make up the gap to Chelsea in the Premier League with their games in hand, putting themselves in contention for the title in May.  If not the League Cup will have to do for this season!

Capitol One League Cup final 2014

A wonder goal from Yaya Toure put City level in the Capitol One League Cup final on Sunday 2nd March, after Sunderland had held a shock 1-0 lead at half-time.  After a poor display in the first half, goals from Toure, Nasri and Navas gave City their first League Cup win since 1976.  I think talk of a quadruple is a bit optimistic, with Barcelona holding a 2-0 lead and playing the second leg in Spain, the Champions League is maybe out of reach this year.  A unique domestic treble is well within City's grasp though, with the Premier League and the FA Cup still up for grabs. C'mon City!
