Man City 3-1 QPR: Highlights And Reaction


Saturday's home fixture against QPR saw City collect all three points, but again we showed no little fragility in defense to go with all the attacking dominance that is now an Etihad regularity....

City 3 - 2 QPR: Champions in dramatic fashion


A look at Manchester City's title win.

City 2 - 1 Chelsea


A compelling finish but above all a vital win. If City had fallen to defeat yesterday the four point deficit to United would have appeared far larger given the doubts that would have pervaded the...

City 3 - 2 Sporting (agg 3- 3, Sporting win on away goals)


Too little, too late and in many ways a familiar ending to European ties in recent times. A stirring comeback over the final thirty minutes of the tie was not enough to save City from a European...

Five Thoughts: Sporting 1 - 0 City


Down, but by no means out. Far from it in fact as given their home form over the course of the season City should have plenty of reason for optimism despite suffering defeat in Portugal. One of the...

Manchester City 3 - 0 Blackburn


There can't be many easier ninety minutes than those experienced by City yesterday afternoon. Up against an insipid and Blackburn side who seemingly played without hope - which was a surprise given...

Porto 1 - 2 City


Not the most emphatic victory, perhaps, but undoubtedly one of the most impressive performances of recent times. The Villarreal win aside, City struggled away from home in the Champions League this...

City 3 - 0 Fulham


Perhaps there is nothing like home comforts to snap yourself out of a sticky spell of form. There have been plenty of column inches devoted to City's struggles of late and whilst their form since...

Liverpool 2 - 2 City (Liverpool win 3-2 on aggregate)


Having got used to the feel of Wembley in recent times City missed their opportunity to make a return there for what would have been a fourth visit in just nine months. Instead it is Liverpool who...

Bolton 2 - 3 City: Post-Game


The Bolton Wanderers hosted City today at Reebok stadium to what was a very exciting game.  Bolton came out with a 4-4-2 consisting of Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Cahill, Knight, Robinson, Eagles,...

City 2-3 United in Community Shield Match: Post-Game Reaction


City lose to United in the Community Shield match.

Manchester City vs Inter Milan - Post-Game reaction


Hello, hope everyone has had a good weekend. After today's win over Inter Milan, Manchester City have come out on top on the Dublin Super Cup. If you have not heard the news, City won today 3-0...

City Win on Penalties


Manchester City won on penalties 7-6 with the last shot going to Joe Hart. A nice note on an otherwise heavily frustrating game. City dominating the first half entered the second half having a...

City vs. Vancouver Whitecaps: Recap


SWP screamer seals City win

Game recap: Bolton 0 - 2 Manchester City


I was away most of yesterday so my only view of the game was the brief highlights on MoTD last night. As a consequence I don't have much to add so I'll leave the post up as a bit of a thread to...

Game recap: Manchester City 3 Stoke 0


No FA Cup hangover then. There was the fear that City may be caught cold in the aftermath of Saturday's victory, but it was apparent early that Stoke were a deflated side whilst City were in their...

FA Cup Final Recap: Reaction in the press


Daniel Taylor, The Observer: On the balance of play, there could be little argument that it was a deserved victory, too. Stoke threatened only sporadically, a 15-minute period at the start of the...

FA Cup Final recap: Thoughts on the victory


A thoroughly deserved victory. The final scoreline may have been 1-0 but but that didn't reflect the dominance of the performance that resulted in a one-sided affair. Many had predicted a tight...

Game recap: Manchester City 1 - 0 Tottenham


Almost a year to the day that Peter Crouch netted the only goal of the game in front of the South Stand to send Tottenham to the Champions League, there was a nice symmetry tonight as an own goal...

Game recap: Everton 2 - 1 Manchester City


A result that threatened to potentially harm the beginning of such an important week, but in the end - thanks to results elsewhere - meant that defeat ultimately makes little difference in terms of...

Game review: Manchester City 2 - 1 West Ham


May 2011 is one that will undoubtedly shape both the clubs short and long term prospects and so far, so good. Following Tottenham going down at Chelsea twenty-four hours earlier, the opportunity to...

Game recap: Blackburn 0 - 1 Manchester City


It wasn't pretty, but at this stage of the season when the stakes are getting higher by the game it is points rather than aesthetics that count. City started fast, with Blackburn content to allow...

FA Cup semi-final recap: Manchester City 1-0 Manchester United


The key worry heading into Saturday's game was how the side would cope with the absence of Carlos Tevez. Tevez, who has unquestionably been the heart of the side since his arrival at the club, is...

Game recap: Liverpool 3 - 0 City


If Alex Ferguson and United were looking to game plan against City, then they will need look no further than the opening thirty minutes of this game. How City start games this season has often...

Game recap: City 5 Sunderland 0


At this stage of the season, it is not necessarily the performances that are important. With only eight games remaining in the Premier League it is points, not plaudits, that count and with...
