MY Take On Alan Padew Saying Wenger is the 2nd best Coach In the EPL and that he does not recognised Jose Mourinho as the best in the EPL, Good morning ladies and Gentlemen , the pundits , the critiques , the Fans , the followers and my fellow commentators of the Game , sincerely speaking , I don't see anything special in Alan Padew's Jibes than to compare it to normal comments make by coaches week in week out in their respective Pre- game conferences which to me is nothing but a Mind Game. The truth is that saying Wenger is the 2nd best Manager in the Legaue may be correct and right due to the fact that the Man is loyal to Arsenal Unlike Jose Mourinho who is busy Chasing Records of winning the League and Champions League trophies with various Club sides he Managed. On the issue that Jose has not done anything in Chelsea to deserves Padew respect is just like saying Manchester City will not do well in the League without Sergio Aguero , Manchester City will definitely miss Sergio Aguero over the next few . ...
Roma0 Manchester City2 Nasri 60′ Zabaleta 86′ Manchester City qualified for the Champions League last 16 for a second successive season as a win at Roma put them through alongside Group E winners Bayern Munich. Samir Nasri scored from 25 yards after the break before Pablo Zabaleta fired in from close range. Earlier Joe Hart tipped Gervinho's strike wide before touching Kostas Manolas's header onto the post. Bayern beat CSKA Moscow 3-0 to confirm City's qualification. It completed a remarkable turnaround for the Premier League champions, who looked to be heading out of the competition after failing to win any of their first four games. However, a 3-2 home win over German Champions Bayern, which included a Sergio Aguero hat-trick, kept alive their hopes of making the last 16 - and they took full advantage with a stunning display in Rome. City, who had to win a European match in Italy for the first time, were without skipper Vincent Kompany, who failed a late fitness test, the suspended Yaya Toure and in ...
Manuel Pellegrini challenged his Manchester City players to prove they are not reliant on Sergio Aguero as they go into their decisive Champions League group game with Roma knowing they will be without their leading striker for up to eight weeks. On Tuesday night the City manager gave three different verdicts on the likely return date for his Argentine forward, beginning with “four, five, six weeks”, moving on to “certainly four to six weeks” before building up to “eight weeks”, the latter in a one-to-one interview with Sky Sports. The worst-case scenario would mean Aguero misses City’s game at Chelsea on 31 January. In the meantime, Pellegrini called upon his team to beat Roma in their final Group E game, reach the knockout round and prove that they were not solely reliant on the man who has already scored 19 goals for them this season. The City manager said: “As I previously said, our team doesn’t depend on one single player and I hope my players can prove it [against Roma].” He adde ...
Edin Džeko: I'm there when Man City need me Edin Dzeko is planning to be the City goal hero in Rome. And the Bosnian Diamond, who has form for coming up with vital strikes, hopes he can help the Blues complete an unlikely Champions League escape, despite losing top scorer Sergio Aguero. The Blues HAVE to score, and better CSKA Moscow’s result at Bayern Munich, to grab second place in their group. But the loss of Aguero, out with knee ligament damage, was a severe blow, especially as Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic are both coming back from injury. Dzeko has been the City saviour many times, not least on the final day of the incredible 2012 title race, when he scored the “other” added time goal that set up Aguero’s immortal winner. He id it again last season, coming into the team when Aguero and Jovetic were injured, and Alvaro Negredo’s form had nosedived, and bagged crucial goals at Crystal Palace and Everton, and in a nervy home win over Aston Villa. Now City will look to him again, either as a star ...
GBAM!!! Injured Aguero set to miss Roma game Sergio Aguero is almost certainly out of Manchester City's crucial Champions League match with Roma after injuring knee ligaments against Everton. The Argentine, 26, was injured in a challenge with Muhamed Besic in the third minute of Saturday's match and left the pitch in tears. City must win Wednesday's game in Rome to have any chance of reaching the last 16 and Aguero's absence is a big blow. "Probably he'll miss the game. It is a big problem," Manuel Pellegrini said. "It is very difficult when you have trouble with your ligament to recover in three days." Aguero, the Premier League's top scorer with 14 goals, is set to learn the extent of the damage on today, with manager Pellegrini refusing to speculate on how long he may face on the sidelines before then. Aguero limped out of the match, which City won 1-0, and was replaced by teenager Jose Pozo. Pellegrini, who was already without Yaya Toure for the Roma game due to suspension, revealed Aguero was "more c ...

The star trio will hope to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in this year's team, having been shortlisted for a place in the illustrious side The shortlist for the forwards in Fifa's FIFPro World XI has been announced, with Sergio Aguero, Wayne Rooney and Diego Costa all nominated from the Premier League. The Manchester City striker leads the way, having helped his side win the Premier League in 2013-14, though injury curtailed his World Cup. Aguero has also hit the ground running this term, scoring 17 goals in 19 appearances. Rooney, meanwhile, was a rare bright spot under David Moyes, and has impressed under Louis van Gaal, having scored his first ever World Cup goal for England at the World Cup. Costa will also fancy his chances of inclusion, with his goals last season propelling Atletico Madrid to the Champions League final, and his start under Jose Mourinho cementing his position as one of the finest strikers in world football. The Brazil-born Spain international has hit ...

News: Barcelona suffered their first defeat of the season as Paris St-Germain moved to the top of Champions League Group F with an impressive 3-2 win over the spanish giants. The French champions were 2-1 up at half-time and extended their lead through a goal by Blaise Matudi, before Neymar pulled one back for Barcelona. Chelsea moved to the top of their group with a 1-0 win over Sporting Lisbon after a first-half Nemanja Matic header. But Manchester City face a hard battle to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League, after a 1-1 draw at home to AS Roma.

If anyone knows how to stop Argentina maestro Lionel Messi, it may just be Iran coach Carlos Queiroz. He has been credited with devising the tactics and defensive system that shut down Messi in both legs of the 2008 Champions League semifinals while Queiroz was assistant manager at Manchester United, which beat Barcelona 1-0 on aggregate. Many have described Queiroz's strategy as a master class, with United stifling Messi by denying him space to get a good first touch. Now, Queiroz will attempt the same feat when Iran takes on Argentina in Group F on Saturday. "We will try to do it," Queiroz said. "But Messi is surrounded by different players now. They know each other well." Queiroz has already proven at this World Cup that he can put out a solid defensive unit, holding Nigeria to a 0-0 draw in Iran's first group match. But it will be a very different proposal against an Argentina side that also has other star players like Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain. Queiroz said the key is for his team to play wit ...
Arsenal's transfer business this summer is braced for an awkward twist after Real Madrid poured cold water on rife transfer links involving a number of its players. According to Marca, last season's Copa del Rey and Uefa Champions League winners are "in no hurry to recruit fresh legs and neither are they in under pressure to sell anyone. " President Florentino Perez has prioritized minimizing departures this summer as Carlo Ancelotti intends to utilize the vast potential already endowed in his tool chest. The Spanish capital outfit will not entertain any bids until after the World Cup showpiece in Brazil. Both Sami Khedira and Karim Benzema who were initially tipped to don Arsenal colors in the new season are set to be offered new contracts while Angel Di Maria who is currently desperate will be soothed by a pay rise. However long term target Alvaro Moratta could be allowed to leave as he is deemed surplus with the club rumored to be preparing a bid for either Manchester City's Sergio Aguero or Liverpool' ...
ARSENAL TO BID FOR BENZEMA? Arsenal have been linked with a £30m (R 519 million) move for Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema as Arsene Wenger targets a new world-class striker. According to Englsih media, Arsenal will make a bid for the French striker after the Champions League final on May 24. Benzema has reportedly just 12 months left on his contract at Bernabeu and Real Madrid are rumoured to be interested in Luis Suarez or Sergio Aguero. Both players, however, have insisted they won’t leave their respective clubs, but it is yet to be seen how they would respond to an official bid. Arsenal are believed to have asked for Benzema the previous summer when the signed Mesut Ozil, but Real were not prepared to let the Frenchman go after Gonzalo Higain had already left the club. As a consequence, Arsenal have relied heavily on Olivier Giroud this season. Benzema’s compatriot has scored 22 goal in all competitions for the Gunners but Wenger is believed to look out for a more prolific striker. The 26-year-old B ...
Fernando Torres, Sergio Aguero, Radamel Falcao and now Diego Costa... Atletico Madrid's conveyor belt of Strikers ‘There will never be another like him,’ said Atletico Madrid fans when they waved goodbye to Fernando Torres in 2007. Then Sergio Aguero reached the first team and soon ‘El Nino’ was forgotten. Aguero was irreplaceable… until he was replaced by Radamel Falcao. And when the Colombian was sold Last Summer he left a gaping hole in the Atletico team, but only for as long as it took Diego Costa to fill it. Assisting some of these strikers have been star names such as Diego Forlan and David Villa, and before Torres they had the likes of Christian Vieri and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink. With this regular supply of striking talent, it is no wonder Diego Simeone has said he will give Costa his blessing if he leaves to join Chelsea at the end of the season. 'We get players and make them better,' he said ahead of the Champions League semi-final first leg and the search is already on for the next gem ...
Manchester City could find themselves in hot water with Uefa over Financial Fair Play, which could lead to positive implications for Arsenal or Everton in their quest for Champions League football next season. What’s the story? City are on the verge of a severe rap from football’s governing body for failing to comply with FFP. Why? After buying the likes of Sergio Aguero, Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy, Javi Garcia and Matija Nastasic, City posted a loss of £149m between 2011-2013 – FFP rules forbid clubs making losses in excess of £37.2 million over that period after certain exceptions are taken into account. What does this mean? It means that if City fail to provide new evidence in the next 48 hours to support claims they’ve played by the rules in their bid to balance the books (their £350million sponsorship deal with Etihad being under particular scrutiny), they are likely to be found guilty of FFP and be hit with either a heavy fine or transfer embargo. At this time,expulsion from the Champions L ...

Stadium desperate to land Anfield hot- shot. Man City are desperate to land Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and are ready to offer Brendan Rodgers his pick of a trio of talents in part of a cash plus player offer for the Uruguayan according to Football Direct News . The Etihad Stadium side may well be keen on partnering Suarez with Argentine goal machine Sergio Aguero, a pairing that would perhaps be as mouthwatering as any other in world football, however it seems hugely unlikely that the Anfield side would consider losing their prized asset this summer. Suarez is currently not only the top scorer in the Premier League he also leads the assist making charts and has fueled Liverpool's genuine Premier League title challenge. The 27 year old has forged a superb strike- pairing alongside Daniel Sturridge and there would appear to be no reason why Suarez would consider leaving Liverpool, not least as Champions League football has all but been assured for next term and the former Ajax man has only recently signe ...

Messi broke the deadlock from the spot in the 54th minute after he was fouled by City defender Martin Demichelis, who was also sent off for a challenge that was initially made outside the penalty area. And despite a defiant response from Manuel Pellegrini's side, Alves delivered what is surely the decisive blow when he exchanged passes with Neymar before sliding a cool finish under City keeper Joe Hart in the final minute. City's supporters applauded their side's efforts at the final whistle but the subdued atmosphere around the ground moments later reflected the brutal reality that the task of recovering this tie is surely beyond them in the second leg at ...
LIVER FAILS HOST AT THE BAY ARENA Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice as Paris St-Germain took a huge step towards the Champions League quarter-finals with a convincing last-16 first-leg win over 10-man Bayer Leverkusen.

Ibrahimovic's two goals see him move ahead of Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo to become the tournament's top scorer this season, with a personal best 10 Champions League goals.

"He is working with the physio," he added. "He has started running, but he will not be ready for Barcelona." Midfielder Fernandinho sustained a muscle strain in training on Sunday and sat out Monday's 1-0 defeat to Chelsea.

The father of Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has dismissed talk of a move to Barcelona. Aguero has been linked with Barca, where Argentine coach Tata Martino is a big fan. Leonel del Castillo, Aguero’s father, said: "I would like to see Sergio and Messi playing together, but there is nothing at all. "Sergio and Leo always speak and more after the Champions League draw. They're good friends, like laughing and they're already joking between them ahead the City v Barça clash. "We will see two great games. I don't know if I will visit Messi's home, but I will go to hotel for sure to say hello to him. I think it will be a 2-0 in England and at least a 0-1 in Barcelona. I love Messi so much, but I want my son's team to win."
Yaya leads Messi to City calls Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is urging former colleague Lionel Messi to make a switch to the Etihad Stadium. Previously, Messi's Argentina team-mate Sergio Aguero has vocalised his desire to see the double World Player of the Year at City, as did compatriot Pablo Zabaleta. A move for the Barcelona playmaker would, without a doubt, command a world record £100million-plus transfer fee. However, City - who take on Barcelona in the Champions League knockout stages - are one of few clubs who could afford the fee and Messi's wage-bill. Furthermore, City's Barcelona connections are strong with Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begirstain both holding prominent roles at the Catalan club before they moved to Manchester. "If it's to come to City, I hope Messi can leave Barca," Toure told the Manchester Evening News. While striker Aguero, who has partnered Messi in the Argentina team, said: "Yes, he should come to City. Then we'll definitely play together. City should buy him." person ...

Facts: 7 Premier League truths – Suarez, Ozil and United 1. United won't win the title this season A lack of consistency is going to cost Manchester United in their quest to defend the Premier League. A 1-0 home defeat to Everton came only seven days after they crushed Bayer Leverkusen 5-0 in the Champions League away from home before drawing 2-2 at Tottenham. Both of those results were encouraging, but losing to Roberto Martinez's side at Old Trafford is not. Bryan Oviedo scored the winning goal five minutes from time. Coming against his old club, it was a sore one for United manager David Moyes. But hardly undeserved. His side are 12 points behind leaders Arsenal. They are too far behind to retain the crown. Top four and Champions League qualification is where it is at this season for United. 2. Smart money still on City to claim the title When you have Sergio Aguero, you cannot look beyond City for the title despite Arsenal and Chelsea being above them in the table. Six points is all that separates C ...
Inter Milan are chasing Manchester City pair Aleksandar Kolarov and Edin Dzeko. The People says Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio checked out striker Dzeko and left-back Kolarov in City’s 4-2 Champions League win over Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday. Bosnia international Dzeko scored their final goal. But the 27-year-old has started just four Premier League games this season, and is unhappy at being behind Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo in the pecking order. Serbia star Kolarov, 28, has a similarly uncertain role in Manuel Pellegrini’s squad. Under contract until 2015, he would relish a return to Italy – having spent three seasons with Lazio before joining City in 2010.
**Morning gist** Alvaro Negredo's hat-trick ensured Manchester City moved into the Champions League knockout phase for the first time with a comfortable win over CSKA Moscow. Sergio Aguero was the initial inspiration, scoring two and setting up another for Negredo as City scored three times inside the first half-hour to make it a straightforward night for Manuel Pellegrini's side. Having already secured a victory in Moscow, City knew they would be able to progress into the last 16 at the third time of asking if they won again and Viktoria Plzen failed to beat holders Bayern Munich. Aguero's early penalty was followed by a cool finish before a cross for strike partner Negredo effectively ended the contest. Seydou Doumbia did pull a goal back for CSKA before the interval but the outstanding Samir Nasri set up Negredo's second just after half-time to restore City's three-goal advantage. Doumbia beat City keeper Costel Pantilimon, once again chosen ahead of England keeper Joe Hart, from the spot for his secon ...

MORE FOOTBALL NEWS. Manchester United remain top of their Champions League group, although Robin Van Persie's missed penalty denied them an away victory against Real Sociedad. After a poor first half, Javier Hernandez smashed over from six yards. United improved after Van Persie came on and the Dutchman hit the post from Ashley Young's cross before striking the same upright from the spot. Marouane Fellaini was then sent off late on as Real earned their first point in this season's competition. United's Belgium midfielder received his second yellow card for a foul on David Zurutuza, having also been perhaps harshly booked in the first half for a challenge on Markel Bergara. Giggs reaches historic milestone Ryan Giggs's ninth appearance this season took him to 950 Manchester United appearances, 24 days short of his 40th birthday.

Bayern, City through as Real draw Holders Bayern Munich and their group rivals Manchester City became the first teams to qualify for the knockout stages of this season's Uefa Champions League. Bayern made heavy weather of beating Viktoria Plzen 1-0 while City reached the knockout stages for the first time, after failing to progress from the group stage in the last two seasons, with a 5-2 thumping of CSKA Moscow in Manchester. "That wasn't a festival from us, we made life hard for ourselves," said Bayern's Toni Kroos after his side had equalled the Champions League record of nine successive wins. "In the opening stages, we gave the ball away too often and had too few chances of our own. Nevertheless, we can be proud to have reached the knock-out stage." Real Madrid came close to joining them, but having gone 2-1 up in Turin against Juventus they were pegged back to 2-2 with a goal by former Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente. Cristiano Ronaldo's opener for Real took him level for the all-time total ...
Manchester City 5 CSKA Moscow 2: match report Beautiful partnership: Álvaro Negredo (left) and Sergio Agüero both scored twice in Manchester City's defeat of CSKA Photo: AP By Henry Winter, Etihad Stadium9:40PM GMT 05 Nov 2013 CommentsComment Manchester City progressed to the knock-out stages of the Champions League for the first time thanks to their brilliant strike-force. Sergio Aguero scored the first two, then Alvaro Negredo swept in a hat-trick and the only disappointing, concerning element on the night were some defensive lapses. City’s attackers were magnificent. Negredo was named man of the match, having scored two tap-ins and then a late header, and others pushed him close. Having converted an early penalty, Aguero’s turn for his second and City’s goal was worth the admission fee alone, a celebration of penalty-box cunning and special technique. Samir Nasri delivered one of his best performances for City, hounding CSKA defenders and creating havoc in the visitors’ defence. David Silva a ...
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho admits he has been surprised by Fernando Torres since he returned to Stamford Bridge as the striker continued his revival with the winner against Manchester City. The 29-year-old, who scored twice in the midweek Champions League win against Schalke, took advantage of a defensive mix-up in injury time to give Chelsea a 2-1 win. Mourinho said: "I have had a big surprise with Fernando from day one with the way he works. He has worked so much from the first day." He added: "Sometimes I have put him on the bench, sometimes he has not been selected, sometimes I have left him at home - but every day he has been the same. He has worked very hard." Torres tally Fernando Torres now has more Premier League assists (12) for Chelsea than he managed for Liverpool (2007-2011) City looked on course for a point when Sergio Aguero equalised after Andre Schurrle put Chelsea ahead - but confusion between goalkeeper Joe Hart and defender Matija Nastasic allowed Torres to pounce for the winner.

Franck Ribery put the reigning champions ahead seven minutes in before Thomas Muller made it two after the interval. A first defeat at home for Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was confirmed when the impressive Arjen Robben got in on the act just before the hour mark, with Alvaro Negredo grabbing the hosts' consolation late on prior to Jerome Boateng's dismissal.

Transfer news: Juventus agree fee for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez Juventus have agreed a fee for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, according to Sky sources. Officials from the two clubs met in London on Tuesday to hammer out the deal and Tevez will now travel to Italy on Wednesday for a medical and to discuss personal terms with the Serie A champions, who have reportedly offered him a three-year contract. Juventus are set to pay a flat fee of around £10m for the 29-year-old Argentina international with some additional bonus payments also agreed. City will now search for a replacement striker for Tevez - as they have only Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko on their books - although Napoli's Edinson Cavani is reportedly not one of their targets. Tevez joined City from their local rivals Manchester United on a five-year contract on July 14, 2009. He has since made 148 appearances for the club, scoring 74 goals, although he was also fined and suspended by City following the infamous Champions League m ...

MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - Manchester United's Champions League exit has made it harder for Manchester City to retain their Premier League title, the champions' manager Roberto Mancini said on Friday. Alex Ferguson's side, whose elimination by Real Madrid on Tuesday has left them with only domestic matters to focus on, had some unlikely supporters of their European campaign in Manchester City. "It's worse for us because I think now they put all their strength into the championship," Mancini, whose side trail United by 12 points, told a news conference. "I think for us it was better they stayed in the Champions League. They would have played an important game every three days, it is more difficult." Before the Manchester clubs get back to their league duel, they turn their attention to the FA Cup, with United hosting Chelsea in the quarter-finals on Sunday the day after City entertain Championship (second tier) Barnsley. Mancini will be without injured forward Sergio Aguero, who did not play in Monday ...
Chelsea and City cruise Frank Lampard and John Terry scored in front of owner Roman Abramovich as holders Chelsea overcame stubborn Brentford 4-0 in an FA Cup replay at Stamford Bridge to set up a fifth- round clash with Middlesbrough. Juan Mata fired a clinical opening goal after 54 minutes and Oscar, who hit the outside of a post in the first half, tucked in his second goal in four days after 68 minutes. Mata was the provider for Lampard's 199th Chelsea goal before Terry headed in an 81st-minute fourth as last season's Champions League winners stayed on course for a fifth FA Cup triumph in seven seasons. Sergio Aguero struck twice as Manchester City kept their season alive by breezing into the FA Cup quarter-finals 4-0 at the expense of Leeds. The Championship side were no match for the reigning Premier League champions, who responded to last week's title setback with a dominant display at the Etihad Stadium. Yaya Toure began the procession early on before Aguero added a penalty and a fine finish either ...
DEFENDERS IN THE EPL dts divides opinion more. Kyle Walker To many, Walker was a surprise choice for the PFA Young Player of the Year last season with the right- back pipping Sergio Aguero to the award. Walker's campaign ended in disappointment as Spurs missed out on a Champions League spot and a toe injury ruled him out of Euro 2012. Those setbacks may have played a part in the 22-year- old's performance level plummeting at the start of this season, as Walker committed several glaring errors - such as a costly mistake in the build-up to Chelsea's fourth goal at White Hart Lane - in Spurs' steady start under Andre Villas-Boas. The right-back's form has gradually stabilised, but it still seems as though his strengths lie in the physical side of his game, rather than decision- making and tactical intelligence. There is still plenty of room for improvement. Patrice Evra Evra is not the only defender to divide opinion at Old Trafford, but the left-back's form over the past two seasons has been more of a conce ...
Review of the year-Elliott "I swear you will never see anything like this ever again". The immortal line from Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler applied to the breathtaking conclusion of last season's Premier League title race, as Sergio Aguero won the trophy for Manchester City with almost the final kick of the campaign. But, let us be honest, it could have related to 2012's footballing year. It has been a truly spectacular 12 months for sport as a whole and the Beautiful Game played its part. There has been title-winning team brilliance and record-breaking individual displays. At the same, there has been sadness and those instances to forget, when it has felt like off-field events have become more of a focus than the matches themselves. Away from Aguero reducing grown Manchester City fans to tears, the purity of Lionel Messi's year-long radiance cannot be ignored. The Argentine ripped up the history books to score the highest number of goals in a calendar year and underline his reputation as the best f ...
Sergio Aguero could be on his way out of the Etihad – with Barcelona star David Villa ­ already being lined up as a mega-money replacement, writes the Sunday People. Striker Aguero was a £38million signing from Atletico Madrid just 18 months ago. And he will remain forever in the hearts of all Blue Moonies after his sensational late winner against QPR on the final day of last season that snatched the Premier League title from Manchester United’s hands. Sources close to the Argentinian striker claim his spirits are low and he has become unsettled at the club this season after their Champions League exit and amid dressing room unrest. It is understood that City sporting director Txiki Begiristain and chief executive Ferran Soriano – with their strong Barca links – have identified Villa as a potential transfer target. The Spaniard – a World Cup and European Championship winner – is said to be assessing his future at the Nou Camp following manager Pep Guardiola’s departure in the summer. Aguer ...
City announced their latest results on Friday evening, confirming losses had been reduced from £197.5million to £97.9million and turnover increased to £231.1million. It confirms the Blues' emergence as one of Europe's elite clubs, despite obvious setbacks this term, including another early elimination from the Champions League and Sunday's defeat to Manchester United, which leave City six points adrift in the Premier League title race. However, even chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak acknowledged the most significant part of the year came in those two minutes of injury-time on May 13, when Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero scored the goals against QPR that won the championship and ended the City curse where anything that can go wrong probably will. "2011-12 will always be remembered as a particularly significant year in the history of the club, a season when Manchester City demonstrated an ability to win in even the most challenging of circumstances," said Al Mubarak.

Sergio Aguero goal not enough as Man City exit the Champions League
LONDON (AFP) – Manchester City went top in the Premier League by crushing Aston Villa 5-0 on Saturday, but third-placed Chelsea have now gone four games without a win after losing 2-1 at West Bromwich Albion. David Silva’s scrappy 43rd-minute goal put City ahead at the Etihad Stadium, before penalties from Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez — awarded for handballs by Andreas Weimann and Barry Bannan — made it 3-0. Aguero beat Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan at his near post to claim his second goal in the 67th minute and Tevez then tapped home the fifth, as City warmed up for Wednesday’s vital Champions League encounter with Real Madrid in style. The result dropped Villa into the bottom three and took champions City a point clear of former leaders Manchester United, who will return to the summit if they win at Norwich City later on Saturday. Chelsea’s early-season momentum appears to have fizzled out completely, after their defeat at coach Roberto Di Matteo’s former club left them four points off .. ...

Roberto Mancini will not face disciplinary action after confronting the referee following his side's controversial 2-2 Champions League draw with Ajax. UEFA have confirmed that the incident was not reported by either Danish referee Peter Rasmussen or their match delegate at the Etihad Stadium. Mancini came onto the field after a stormy final few minutes in which Sergio Aguero had a goal disallowed and Mario Balotelli had a penalty appeal turned down. A UEFA spokesperson said: "Nothing was reported neither by the delegate nor by the referee. No disciplinary proceedings are opened."

Manchester City 1-1 Borussia Dortmund: Ice cool Balotelli rescues precious Champions League point for Mancini’s men The Italian substitute and goalkeeper Joe Hart are the heroes for the English champions as they struggle to contain the outstanding Bundesliga holders. For Roberto Mancini, there continues to be no sign of improvement to an increasingly desperate Champions League record. The Italian cut a frustrated figure at Etihad Stadium as Manchester City needed an 89th-minute Mario Balotelli penalty to draw 1-1 against an excellent Borussia Dortmund side.Substitute Balotelli, who had only been on the pitch for eight minutes, stroked home the spot-kick with ice-cool precision after Neven Subotic had been harshly penalised for hand-balling a Sergio Aguero volley. It came after Dortmund had created a glut of excellent opportunities only to be denied by a Joe Hart masterclass in goal. The England No.1 could not prevent Marco Reus giving the visitors the lead after 60 minutes but he was equal to everything ...
Roberto Mancini and Mario Balotelli were involved in a tunnel confrontation after Laurent Koscielny had secured a point with a late equaliser for Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium yesterday.

Nasri strained his hamstring during the 3-2 Champions League defeat at Real Madrid, but forwards Sergio Aguero and Mario Balotelli are available. Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is again sidelined by an ankle injury so Vito Mannone will continue in goal. The game will come too soon for Jack Wilshere and Emmanuel Frimpong, who are back in training after long lay-offs. Nasri, who moved from Arsenal to City Last Summer in a £25m deal, is not expected to be sidelined for long. City manager Roberto Mancini said: "I do not think he will be ready for Sunday. We will try but it is difficult. I hope he will be okay for next week."

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero's bid for fitness has been fuelled by his desire to play against Real Madrid in the Champions League next week.
Reigning champions Chelsea and Premier League runners-up Manchester United have the best chance of the four English teams, according to the poll, while the league champions, Manchester City, haven’t got a hope, with just 1% of supporters backing Roberto Mancini to guide City to their first Champions League trophy. The Premier League champions certainly have the squad to win the continental competition, with Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez among Europe’s best strikers. But their lack of discipline and European experience counted against them last season, and may do again during the next campaign. Mancini’s side crashed out in the group stages last season, with one particularly miserable night in Munich responsible for Carlos Tevez’s five month exclusion from the City squad. Mancini will be hopeful of more successful – and less stressful – campaign this time around, although the fans are doubtful.

Manchester City scored twice in stoppage-time to clinch their first league title since 1968 with a 3-2 win over QPR, who avoided relegation regardless. A quite incredible season ended in the most dramatic way possible, with City snatching victory from the jaws of what seemed certain to become the most disastrous defeat imaginable. Second-half goals from Djibril Cisse and Jamie Mackie, either side of a ridiculous Joey Barton red card, seemed to have turned the entire season on its head. But with the game entering five minutes of stoppage time, City produced a finish equally as memorable as that of Manchester United inthe 1999 Champions League final. That United should be denied just made the joy so much sweeter, as first Edin Dzeko nodded the Blues level before Sergio Aguero collected Mario Balotelli's return pass and drove home the goal that crowned City champions.

From first kick to last, the campaign was littered with preposterous plot lines and results that would have had a Hollywood film director rejecting them for being too implausible.

However, it remained in doubt right until the final stages as the Magpies fought to keep alive their dreams of Champions League qualification. It was not until Toure blasted a 70th-minute shot past goalkeeper Tim Krul that City got their noses in front, and although both he and Sergio Aguero wasted further chances to cement the win, Toure made sure at the death with a simple tap-in. Roberto Mancini's players celebrated just as lustily as their fans high in the stand behind Krul's goal after the final whistle with the pro ...

Born in Rosario, Santa Fe, Messi began playing football at a young age and his skill and potential was soon realized by Barcelona.
