South America is now the home of world class strikers. The best in the world. Sergio Aguero, Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa are Premier League leading lights - the main reason is desire Hunger. It is the word that is consistently used by managers and fellow players. Desire. That is another – as is drive. And passion. And fight. Above all, in fact, it is fight. The highly-charged language chosen to refer to the South American strikers who are dominating the Premier League is increasingly dramatic and spoken in awed terms.

The top 50 footballers in the world during 2014 [Norwegian football journal Josimar] 989 Share 0 ← Previous Story Next Story → Josimar is a Norwegian football journal, named after the former Brazil international. In their latest issue, they have asked esteemed football journalists to Tor-Kristian Karlsen, Gabriele Marcotti and Philippe Auclair to name their top 50 players in the world during 2014. The 50 have since been reproduced on Reddit, and are listed below. The top three will come as no surprise, with the Ballon d’Or trio of Cristiano Ronaldo, Manuel Neuer and Lionel Messi coming at the top of the list. Many of the rest are difficult to argue with. Perhaps the big bone of contention is that there is no Wayne Rooney, despite some fine displays from the Manchester United striker this season. Recent form also points to the likes of Sergio Aguero, Alexis Sanchez and David De Gea coming higher in this list. 1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) 2. Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich) 3.

6 Football Terms You Must Know If You Love Football (Part 2) 4. Channels. There are 3 channels. Channel 1 is straight through the middle of the pitch towards the penalty box. Bojan Krikic in yesterday's match between Stoke City and Manchester United was fouled by Ander Herrera as he exploited channel 1 right after Stoke conceded the second goal. Channel 2 is the space between the right centre back and an advancing right full back. Channel 3 is on the opposite left side. Sergio Aguero is a master of these channels as Mesut Ozil was with Real Madrid. 5. False 9 The false 9 as the name implies is not a true No.9. He is an attacking midfielder or even a forward who mimics the position. Instead of playing as a target man or an out-and-out striker, he moves away from the opposition penalty box deep into his own half through the middle, thereby pulling along the centre backs with him. This enables the other midfielders to find spaces behind the defense and score goals. Francesco Totti was among the first crop of ...
MAVHARIVHARI (Rumours) & INTERNATIONAL UPDATES • Bayern Munich passed up the chance to sign Sergio Aguero in 2006 because the club's manager at the time, Felix Magath, felt the striker was too lazy. • Arsenal want to sign Polish defensive midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak from Spanish side Sevilla, although the 24-year-old could cost as much as £20m. • Chelsea and Manchester United are ready to bid for Galatasaray midfielder Wesley Sneijder, 30, after the Netherlands international's agent suggested he was unhappy at not playing in recent matches for the Turkish side. • Bayern Munich and Switzerland midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri, 23, a former transfer target for Liverpool, will be allowed to leave the German champions in January. • Everton striker Arouna Kone, 31, could be sent out on loan in the January transfer window as he aims to regain full fitness after a year out of action with a knee injury. • Liverpool and Manchester United are both interested in buying Netherlands Under-21 international Da ...
Arsenal vs Man United: 10 stats that may determine the game's outcome Despite their investment during this summer, Arsenal and Manchester United have not managed to give their fans something to make them proud. Sure, The Gunners hired Alexis Sanchez and the Red Devils went on a shopping spree, but that's about it for two of the most important teams in the Premier League. Here's a statistical analysis about why this teams have not been able to perform correctly. 1. Arsenal's "Alexis-dependence" The Gunners' super transfer of the summer has really paid off, but the rest of the team has not backed the Chilean so far. Sanchez is at the top of the scoring table with eight goals, surpassed only by Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero, but the closest player to Sanchez in Arsenal's squad is Aaron Ramsey...with TWO goals. If Wenger's men want to improve their current sixth place in the table, they should pitch in more often to help the South American player. 2. Manchester's lack of leading scorer Perhaps variety is good ...
Louis Van Gaal slammed Chris Smalling and labelled him "stupid" after he was given a red card for two bookable offences in the first half of Manchester United's1-0 defeat to Manchester City. The England international, who started the game at centre-back, picked up his first caution for needlessly charging down Joe Hart's goal-kick before hacking down James Milner before half-time. That meant United had to play the remaining 52 minutes with 10 men and a makeshift back four of Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick, Paddy McNair and Luke Shaw after Marcus Rojo also exited the game after dislocating his shoulder. Sergio Aguero ultimately made the extra man count by firing home a 63rd minute winner for City, though United did at least display an admirable spirit in the second period and could even have snatched a point, with Robin Van Persie, Angel Di Maria and Fellaini all going close. After the game, Van Gaal spoke of his anger at Smalling and said the defender was guilty of failing to control his aggression, wh ...

Manchester United midfielder Angel Di Maria says he will put aside ties with his Manchester City countrymen when the two sides meet this weekend. Di Maria is set to face fellow Argentines such as Sergio Aguero and Pablo Zabaleta when United travel to the Etihad for Sunday's Manchester derby. Di Maria also dismissed suggestions that he rejected a move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer and insisted he never had any hesitation in signing for United. French champions Paris Saint-Germain were heavily linked with a move for Di Maria throughout last summer, but he eventually sealed a British- record £59.7 million move from Real Madrid to United and he has stressed he was eager to move to Old Trafford when the offer came his way. "There was never any contact anywhere else," Di Maria told reporters at a Premier League Kicks event. "The people who came with all the paperwork, signed and ready, showing real eagerness to sign me were United. As soon as I heard of their interest, there was no question of me going an ...
Manchester City vs Manchester United: 'We'll go in hard' on Sergio Aguero, says ... - The Independent
The immediate rerun of the World Cup Final had a very different outcome as Angel Di Maria inspired Argentina to a 4-2 win over Germany. Less than two months since Germany won the trophy in Brazil, new Manchester United midfielder Di Maria scored one and set up three in a scintillating performance. Germany did pick just four players who started back in July, but regardless, they would have expected to do better than watch Di Maria lay on goals for Sergio Aguero, Erik Lamela and Federico Fernandez before scoring himself. Andre Schurrle pulled one back and Fernandez put through his own goal, though Mario Gotze will claim the glory, but there would be no comeback. Alejandro Bedoya's goal was the only one as the United States won 1-0 in the Czech Republic, while the Republic of Ireland beat Oman 2-0 thanks to goals from Kevin Doyle and Alex Pearce. England were also back in action after the World Cup -- their experience a dismal one in South America -- and there was not much more to cheer as they scraped past ...

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 ...

Five matches that decided the 2013-14 Premier League title By John Brewin | May 15, 2014 4:10:41 AM PDT After a 2013-14 Premier League title race of twists and turns, John Brewin selects the five most decisive games of the season as Manchester City ultimately claimed glory ahead of Liverpool on the final day. Manchester City 4-1 Manchester United, Sept. 22 This was the Sunday afternoon when it became clear that the champions would not be putting up a credible defence of their title. Three minutes either side of half-time crashingly delivered that message. David Moyes' Manchester United were destroyed by a City team that looked streets ahead. In the 17th minute, Sergio Aguero converted after attempts had rained down on David De Gea's goal. United's best hope was holding on for half-time and that Moyes might perform a tactical or motivational miracle. Yaya Toure's 45th-minute strike negated that, and whatever Moyes might have said had no effect as two quick goals by Aguero and Samir Nasri followed. Thereaft ...

fanatix Top 5 most dangerous Premier League players: Arsenal ace joins Liverpool stars amongst most goals and assists combined Adam Davies 29 Minutes Ago Who are the most productive Premier League players? Find out which Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Man Utd stars have the most goals and assists combined here. 4= Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) Games played : 20 (2) Goals: 10 Assists: 9 Goals + assists: 19 Wayne Rooney's new contract at Manchester United means he is now set to earn circa £300,000 per week, with the Guardian reporting that his club will actually help him earn personal endorsements beyond his basic salary of around £240,000 - an unprecedented move in world football. Regardless of whether you feel Rooney is worth the Red Devils bending over backward to accommodate him personally, his numbers this season are tricky to argue with. With a combined 19 goals and assists in 22 appearances, he clearly makes a decisive impact in the majority of the games he plays. Even if David Moyes' t ...
Manchester United have added another striker to a growing list of potential summer transfer targets, reports the Daily Mail. David Moyes is looking to overhaul his Manchester United squad with as much £200m being set aside for a number of high profile transfers. The Manchester United manager will be looking to strengthen every area of the pitch with a new striker heavy on the agenda. A shortlist of targets has been drawn up by Moyes, thought to contain the likes of PSG's Edinson Cavani, Atletico Madrid's Diego Costa, Mario Mandzukic at Bayern Munich and now starlet Luciano Vietto. The Argentine striker has earned rave reviews for his performances for Argentinian outfit Racing Club and has quickly been labelled as the 'next Sergio Aguero'. At just 20-years-old, Vietto will represent a signing for the future for Moyes, with the striker having significantly less experience than the three aforementioned players. However, with Robin Van Persie still playing a prominent role in the team, Moyes may see the youn ...

The one thing you can say for certain is that, against Liverpool on Wednesday, Fulham are going to need more than defensive heading ability to claim a positive result. A lot more. Rather than taking on what has become one of the most predictable teams in Manchester United, they are facing one of the most imaginative. They are certainly taking on one of the most outrageously inventive players. If Luis Suarez is still obviously a level or two below Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as a whole, and arguably not as 'economic' as Sergio Aguero or Robin Van Persie in the Premier League, the Uruguayan certainly looks the globe's most exciting player in terms of attempting the unexpected. In doing so, he has also come to condition and thereby personify this Liverpool team. They are, at the minute, a joy to watch. There have clearly been better sides over the last decade of the Premier League, and there are at least two better this season, but it's difficult to think of too many with attacks that had just so many pl ...

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 ...

The former Manchester United man dealt the decisive blow as the Black Cats picked up their second win under new boss Gus Poyet and dented City's title challenge Manchester City fell to a fourth consecutive 1-0 defeat at the Stadium of Light as Sunderland secured their second win of the season.

Sergio Aguero saw a first-half header fly wide of goal, while substitute Jesus Navas had a chance blocked by Bardsley on the line. City pushed hard for an equaliser, penning the hosts inside their own half, but Micah Richards and Eden Dzeko were both denied by Vito Mannone.

Sergio Aguero scored twice as Manchester City came from behind to beat CSKA Moscow and reignite their Champions League Group D campaign.

It was far from comfortable for Pellegrini and his players, who were forced to endure some anxious moments against the Russian champions to record their second away win of the group stage.

n the 21 years of the Premier League, there have been many great players. These players are replaced in time - for every Cantona there is an Henry, and for every Ginola there is a Ronaldo. English football has been graced by some true greats of the modern game, none more so than in the past decade.

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.

Manchester UnitED Season in short: Got it right. Manchester United didn't just beat their rivals to the finish line -- they opened up the throttle at Christmas and left everyone choking in the dust. Between their November defeat to Norwich and their April slipup against Manchester City, they were unbeaten, winning 16 of their 18 games. And yet you wouldn't have guessed it from the way they lost at Goodison Park in their first game of the season. Nor would you have guessed that victorious manager David Moyes would eventually end up replacing his compatriot at Old Trafford, but that's another story. This was a typical response from the Red Devils, an emphatic riposte to Sergio Aguero's title-winning goal this time last year. While they could never be described as one of Sir Alex Ferguson's greatest teams, the Class of 2013 certainly was one of his most composed and resolute. On numerous occasions, they cruised to victory, doing just enough to secure the points even when they hadn't played particularly well. ...

BPL TOP 5 EXPENSIVE TEAMS: 1. Manchester City - £380m Manchester City spent a club record fee to complete the signing of Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero in the summer of 2011 and, after an instrumental role in delivering the title in his first season with the club, the Argentine remains the most highly-valued player on the books at the Etihad Stadium. According to Transfermarkt, Aguero's present market value of £39.5 million places him at the top of Manchester City's rankings, although he is closely followed by fleet-footed Spaniard David Silva. City spent £25 million to acquire Silva from Valencia, and his value has soared since his arrival in Manchester, with the 27-year-old worth 54 percent more now than he was upon arrival almost three years ago.

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 ...

Sure could sign him for around 20 million euros, Madrid reportedly made the former Chivas Guadalajara striker as the main alternative if they fail to bring Edinson Cavani, Radamel Falcao or Sergio Aguero.
Manchester - Manchester City galvanised their grip on second place in the English Premier League and trimmed Manchester United's lead back to 12 points with a 2-0 victory at home to nearest rivals Chelsea on Sunday. After Chelsea's Frank Lampard had seen a penalty saved by England colleague Joe Hart, City prevailed through a pair of fine second-half goals from man-of-the-match Yaya Toure and substitute Carlos Tevez. Although City's chances of retaining their league title remain decidedly slender, they now have a seven-point advantage over Chelsea, who could slip to fourth if Tottenham Hotspur overcome West Ham United on Monday. Both City manager Roberto Mancini and his Chelsea counterpart Rafael Benitez flooded their sides with midfielders at the Etihad Stadium, while Benitez opted to leave John Terry and Fernando Torres on thebench. City deployed Sergio Aguero as a lone striker and although he had to plough a lone furrow, it was the hosts who dominated the firsthalf. Visiting goalkeeper Petr Cech had to ...
Backpass, February 19, Part 1 Edin Dzeko is willing to take a pay cut to seal a £20million summer move to Borussia Dortmund. Dzeko, 26, is thought to earn around £120,000 a week at Manchester City. But the striker has become increasingly frustrated at not getting a consistent run in the first team. And the German champs believe the Bosnian will jump at the chance to join Dortmund where he will be the main man. The 26-year-old joined City in a £27million switch from Wolfsburg two years ago. He has 16 goals in all competitions this season but he is facing fierce competition from Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero for a starting place. Dortmund want Dzeko as a possible replacement for Robert Lewandowski who is expected to leave in the summer to join Bayern Munich. The German giants would prefer to sell Lewandowski to Manchester United but the Polish international seems to favour a move to Bayern. Deliberation: If Dzeko eventually quits City... who will gain more? Player or club?
OPPOSITION swept aside. Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez on the scoresheet. Yaya Toure on target too and bossing the middle of the park while Roberto Mancini’s name was sung around the ground. That is how it was on a regular basis against Premier League visitors last season rather than just a side from the middle of the Championship. But this convincing win could spark City back into life in their pursuit of title rivals Manchester United. And they also have a great chance of reaching the FA Cup Final after drawing Barnsley at home in the quarter-finals. The pundits who suggested this game would be the end for Mancini and that the team was on a downhill slide had their answer. It was never going to be for the Italian, who delivered the club’s first title in 44 years last May. The players also have too much about them to allow the glory of last season to fade so quickly. Let us not forget that just last month City did not concede a goal and Mancini was nominated for Manager of the Month. But two league d ...

THE post-Mario Balotelli era at Manchester City began in lacklustre fashion as it was held to a 0-0 draw at Queens Park Rangers today that prevented it from making up ground on Manchester United. Victory for City would have cut United's lead to just two points, but instead Alex Ferguson's side will tackle Southampton tomorrow with an opportunity to re-open a seven-point lead at the English Premier League summit. The troublesome Italian striker is expected to complete a switch to AC Milan tomorrow, and City could have done with some extra firepower at Loftus Road. An injury to Vincent Kompany obliged the champion to start with Spanish midfielder Javi Garcia at centre-back, but it began with both Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero in attack as they sought to exploit bottom club QPR's defensive frailties. Joleon Lescott blazed an early chance over the crossbar from close range, while Pablo Zabaleta headed against the bar from a David Silva cross and Aguero had a goal ruled out for offside.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero claims his side are ready to fight all the way with league leaders Manchester United for the Barclays Premier League title. He should go and watch "hand Glove"
Messi shortlisted for Ballon d'Or 29 November 2012 Updated 15:37 GMT Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Andres Iniesta have been named on a three-man shortlist for this year's Ballon d'Or prize, Fifa has announced. Messi, 25, has scored 82 goals this calendar year - just three short of the record set by Gerd Mueller in 1972. Real Madrid's former Manchester United player Ronaldo also makes the list, along with Barcelona's Iniesta. Pep Guardiola, Vicente del Bosque and Jose Mourinho are shortlisted for coach of the year. The winners will be announced on 7 January. Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, Britain's sole representative on the initial 23-man list, failed to make it through. His Old Trafford team-mate Robin Van Persie also missed the cut, as did Manchester City trio Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Yaya Toure. After 50 goals last season in La Liga - including breaking Barcelona's 60-year-old goalscoring record with a hat-trick in a 5-3 win over Granada in March - Messi is expected to win Fifa's pla ...

Manchester City remain seven points behind leaders Manchester United after a comfortable 3-0 victory over Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium. Close-range finishes from Pablo Zabaleta and Edin Dzeko put City in firm control before Sergio Aguero completed the scoring with a penalty that was awarded despite Steven Nzonzi fouling David Silva outside the box after 73 minutes.

Adam Johnson scored against his former club as Sunderland shocked Manchester City with a hard-fought victory. City had the better of the first half as Vincent Kompany hit the bar and Simon Mignolet made good saves from Yaya Toure and David Silva. Sunderland took the lead when Johnson cut in from the right and his 25-yard shot beat Joe Hart at his near post. Sergio Aguero was denied late on as City fell seven points behind Manchester United in the title race.
Tactics Talk: How did Manchester United win the tactical battle against City? Mancini doesn’t yet have the same trust in his players that his opposition manager does. Where the Italian can’t decide who is the man to complement Sergio Aguero up-front in biggames, Ferguson normally always picks Valencia, Ashley Young and Michael Carrick in his attacking unit as well as Wayne Rooney who provides defensive responsibility to go along with the obvious offensive threat he’s renowned for. The Englishmen is key to the adaptable United. Taking his place between midfield and attack, the forward dropped in to occupy the space of Gareth Barry and Yaya Toure as well as making late runs forward to support Robin Van Persie. He made just one pass in to the City box all afternoon, but, more importantly, limited City’s sitting midfielders to just 51 passes between them in the first half. That counter-attacki ­ng approach paid dividends when a Young-Van Persie one-two gave Rooney the chance to trundle the opener pas ...
Roberto Mancini will gamble on the fragile temper of Mario Balotelli for the Manchester derby. Sources close to the Manchester City manager indicated that he will start with Balotelli up front, partnered by Sergio Aguero. The source said: 'Mancini is going for the pairing he believeswill cause most damage to United if they arein form.
Sir Alex Ferguson: United are ready for City challenge Three years ago, the Blues were just a noisy irritant to the Manchester United boss. Now, with an FA Cup and Premier League collected, City have turned the volume up. And Ferguson is prepared for it. "They're screaming now," he said ahead of Sunday's derby at the Etihad Stadium. "It's great. Challenges are what we're made of. "I've been lucky that, in my time here, I've been involved with great competitions against teams like Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and now City. There are no dull moments. "We don't run from challenges." There does seem something special about this particularly rivalry, though. The pain of that never-to-be-forgotten final day last season, when United were technically champions when their last game was completed at Sunderland, only to have the prize snatched away from them by Sergio Aguero with virtually the last kick of the entire campaign, was more acute for the fans because so many had to face their City counterparts on the Manc ...
Rafa Benitez could not inspire Chelsea to victory over Manchester City in his first game in charge and was the subject of protests from some fans in a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge. The Spaniard has succeeded the sacked Roberto Di Matteo on an interim basis and his former connection with Liverpool has made him unpopular in London. Sections of the Chelsea support held up banners against Benitez and they also stood and applauded in the 16th minute, which was Di Matteo's shirt number in his playing days, before the game ended in a forgettable 0-0 draw. Sergio Aguero wasted the best chance of a turgid Premier League encounter in driving rain, which the visitors had the better of in the first half but the home side the second. The draw moved unbeaten champions City to within a point of new leaders Manchester United, leaving Chelsea fourth. Benitez has shored up the Blues' defence during his four days in charge but he has his work cut out to get them playing the scintillating football demanded by the watchin ...
Manchester City are out of the Champions League at the group stage for the second successive season after they were held to a draw by Real Madrid at the Etihad. Roberto Mancini's side needed victory to maintain any hope of progress but fell behind to Karim Benzema's early goal. Real threatened to run riot in the early stages as former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo - given a predictably hostile reception - saw an effort scrambled off the line and Sami Khedira wasted three opportunities. Mancini's three-man defensive system was being easily exploited by Real but City finally came into the game when the necessary alterations were made after the break. Sergio Aguero equalised from the spot after 74 minutes following a foul by Alvaro Arbeloa, who was sent off after receiving a second yellow card, but even a late rally could not bring the goal they needed. City are rooted to the bottom of Group D without a win and only three points from five games so the Premier League champions can have no complaint ...

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. While City were hit by misfortune and misery, Roberto Di Matteo’s side shocked Eu ...

£250,000 a DAY! The astonishing amount United pay to meet their massive debt – Today,10:19 Manchester United are bracing themselves for a new supporter backlash after their latest accounts revealed they lost £71million to financial obligations imposed by owners the Glazers over the last nine months. While neighbours Manchester City have been taking the Barclays Premier League trophy from them and signing players like Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure in recent times, figures released on Thursday showed much of the Old Trafford revenue has been lost to interest payments and bond buybacks. Money matters: Manchester United's net debt has risen by £26m Put in simple terms, the money lost as United try to service debt levels that still stand at more than £420m is equivalent to £250,000 a day. On Thursday night United supporters were aghast as the ongoing financial issues surrounding the Glazers' ownership became clear - days after the club's chief executive David Gill admitted they cannot compete with City i ...
On May 13, Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United had their 13th Premier League title in their grasp for 13 seconds. During that time, Sergio Aguero was careering towards ending that sliver of hope with the type of finish a £38 million signing should deliver. It was a climax as thrilling as any in the Premier League era, and only added to the opinion that this had been the greatest of all seasons. Well, since football began in 1992 anyway. Perhaps that cool finish was the moment that consigned the phrase "typical City" to the dustbin, chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak suggested. The old Manchester City did not have £930 million to spend on a "project" to bear the fruit of victory in first the FA Cup and then the Premier League. And they did not have a manager like Roberto Mancini. Though he understandably lost his cool when all seemed lost on Sunday, Mancini's self-assurance has been City's guiding light. Al-Mubarak suggested that "what Roberto did magnificently was to take the pressure off the entire team" ...
Manchester City have finally taken the BPL trophy for pride and honour in an epic battle until the final seconds of the match against QPR. Goals by Sergio Aguero , Edin Dzeko and Pablo Zabaleta sealed the game at 3-2. About Manchester United, simple.RIP
On the heel's of yesterday's two big sports stories in Los Angeles, the Clippers winning their first Game 7 in franchise history to advance to the NBA's Western Conference semi-finals against the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs, and the Kings taking game one of the NHL's Western Conference Finals against the Phoenix Coyotes, I had to throw in the other HUGE sports Story, that of the English Premiere League's Machester City team getting two goals in the stoppage time to beat the Queen's Park Rangers 3-2, which also earned them their first EPL title since 1968 and more importantly, denying their inter-city Rivals, Manchester United, another League title. Here are a few calls of the game winning goal by Sergio Aguero including the reaction by former EPL player Paul Merson on the Sky Sports broadcast. I love how he and his fellow broadcasters react like fans watching TV.
Some people were on the pitch. They thought it was all over. But they didn't include Edin Dzeko. They didn't include Sergio Aguero. They didn't include the Manchester City side who staged the latest, greatest feat of escapology a title-winning team has ever performed. After 38 games and 3420 minutes of their season, they were 2-1 down to QPR, three points behind Manchester United and set to be labelled chokers. Cue Mancini Time, the Italian equivalent of Fergie Time. It was when City, those experts at snatching defeat from the jaws of triumph, went from despair to delight in a nod of Dzeko's head and a strike of Aguero's boot. And, as the United players waiting to celebrate on the Stadium of Light pitch discovered, it was all over. As United were deposed, Arsenal were displaced. Until now, George Graham's class of 1989 were the champions of late drama. Not now. Aguero provided the Michael Thomas moment, but two minutes later. It was the 92nd minute when the Arsenal midfielder delivered the decisive second ...
I would say that the last week of the league was the best week in the whole season.Manchester United,Manchester City,Chelsea,Arsenal,Bolton played up to their level best.a fantastic goal by Kevin Davies made that match a worth to watch it.Roberto Manchini is looking up to Sergio Aguero in the next season also to show up in the same way.Matteo would be pretty happy with his boys after winning against Blackburn with a superb goal from Terry and Raul Miereles.One of the most dominating teams in this season was Newcastle United.Alan Pardew and his team stood 5th in the table just one point above Chelsea.The two teams which did not show up in this season was Chelsea and Liverpool.Sorry to say this statement even though as a former Liverpool supporter and current Chelsea supporter...no offence.But a lot is expected from chelsea in the Champions League final.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — After 44 years playing in Manchester United's shadow, Manchester City waited to this season's waning seconds to leave the gloom, denying its fierce rival the English title and ending its own drought. The Premier League has never witnessed a finale like it and could struggle to match the breathtaking twists and turns for years. After 38 matches over nine months, all that separated City and United was goal differential as the clock wound down on the season Sunday evening. "I don't want to spoil the moment," City captain Vincent Kompany said. "But I'm already looking forward to the next one." The final dramatic turn — injury-time goals from Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero — swung the title race back in City's favor when all appeared to be lost. United's title celebrations at Sunderland, where the deposed champions had won 1-0, were abandoned as manager Alex Ferguson hastily ordered his players off the field. "I got the word during the game that City had scored to make it 2-2," U ...

Roberto Mancini hailed Sergio Aguero for his dramatic 94th-minute goal that clinched the Premier League title for Manchester City. “I was so happy that the ball fell to Sergio,” said Mancini. “I think it’s only right that he scored the last goal.” Aguero’s late winner ripped the title from the grasp of Manchester United, who thought they had retained it after winning at ­ Sunderland. Jubilant Aguero, son-in-law of Diego Maradona who scored the infamous ‘Hand of God’ goal against England, hailed the strike – his 30th of the season – as the most important of his career. “The ball fell at my feet and my only thought was to hit the target,” said Aguero, a £38million signing last summer. “Thankfully it went in. For sure it was the most important goal of my career. “To score in the last minute to win the title? I’m not sure that is ever going to happen again.” It was City’s first title win in 44 years and Mancini added: “It’s impossible to single out just one or two playe ...

Manchester City have copied a well known and proven blueprint for success in England, used in the past by Manchester United and Chelsea: First get a strong spine – a great goalkeeper (Joe Hart), a rock in defence (Vincent Kompany), a midfield general (Yaya Toure) , a player like Carlos Tevez – a determined dribbler , and a talisman (Sergio Aguero). - by Ouriel Daskal (Sport Business Editor)

What a fitting finale to the 2011-12 season of Barclays Premier League... kudos to Manchester City! That is the spirit of being Champions of the world's best league .. Coming back from 1-2 to clinch a goal with the last kick to win the championship deserves credit. It is very different from the manipulative mind games that we have been seeing win trophies for the last 2 decades. Step aside Manchester United! The 'noisy neighbors' have dismantled the abominable gum chewing old hag... Hats off to Roberto Mancini, Vincent Kompany and team (special mention of Ya Ya Toure, Sergio Aguero, Joe Hart and David Silva) ... Welcome to a new Era in football, and more importantly, goodbye to a bygone era of winning through manipulation and bad influence..!
Manchester City 1-0 Manchester United: Kompany header settles derby as Mancini's men leapfrog the champions.The defender converted David Silva's corner in first half added time in order to secure three points as the home side edge closer to their first ever Premier League title Vincent Kompany's header in first half added time earned Roberto Mancini's team the points and catapulted them above United and into top spot on goal difference. City now need only to match the results of their Manchester rivals in the final two games of the league campaign in order to pip Sir Alex Ferguson's men to the trophy. City had scored 12 goals in three matches prior to this fixture and as a result Roberto Mancini opted to stick with the side that had relegated Wolves eight days earlier. That meant that Carlos Tevez faced his former club alongside Sergio Aguero in attack, with David Silva and Samir Nasri in support. Antonio Valencia was surprisingly omitted from the United starting XI, with Park Ji-Sung and Ryan Giggs joini ...

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea says Wayne Rooney is better than all the Manchester City strikers COMBINED. Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Mario Balotelli could all take the field tonight at the Etihad. De Gea told The Sun: “City possess dangerous forwards and any of them are capable of scoring against us. “I know Aguero well and in this type of game he is always at his best. Yes, the City attack has its stars but I wouldn’t swap Wayne for any of them. He is more than a Manchester United Footballer — he is the key man in our squad. “Wayne is the same player in training sessions as he is in the matches. He always gives his maximum. “He really is a worldwide star and I notice just how focused he is on this derby. This derby is a final for us. If we beat City, United will be Premier League champions again. It’s as simple as that — we are 90 minutes from winning the title. “I won the Europa League final with Atletico Madrid but this is now the most important day in my ...

Kyle Walkerhas been named the PFA Young Player of the Year award after an impressive first fullseason impressive for Tottenham . The 21-year-old made his international debut in England’s friendly against Spain and then made his full debut against Sweden picking up the man of thematch award for his efforts. He also became a fans favourite at White Hart Lane after scoring the winning goal in a north London derby win over Arsenal with a 25-yard strike. Spurs teammate Gareth Bale and Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero were among the favourites to win the award. Also nominated were Arsenal's teenage midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck and Chelseaforwar Daniel Sturridge. Walker had originally been a 33/1 outsider to pick up the award but after a spate of betting, quickly became the favourite. Bookmakers, William Hill then refused to take any more bets on the award, after an attempted £1,200 bet on the defender, leading to fears that the result hadbeen leaked.

Carlos Tevez scored a stunning hat-trick as Manchester City turned the heat up on league leaders Manchester United with a clinical hammering of Norwich at Carrow Road. Starting successive Barclays Premier League games for the first time in 11 months, Tevez blasted home a 20-yard swirling shot to open the scoring before he backheeled to Sergio Aguero, who made it 2-0 with a venomous volley. Andrew Surman pulled one back just after the break to give the Canaries hope, but a Tevez second-half double, a late strike from Adam Johnson, and a majestic curler from Aguero gave City a hugely impressive victory to cut United's lead to two points. Tevez, who famously went AWOL in Argentina for six months after refusing to come off the bench against Bayern Munich, is now well and truly back to his best and could yet have a decisive say in this title race with his former employers. The diminutive striker looked sharp all afternoon, dropping deep and working the channels all game to cause the Canaries all sorts of probl ...
