Why Kompany MUST start in the Manchester derby

A derby game is always one of your most important games of the season. Danny Mills, in his commentary for BT Sport’s coverage of City’s Champions League game against Sevilla, shared his thoughts on Vincent Kompany’s absence from the City side, and made note of the fact that the Blues faced two tough tests in a matter of days. But what was rather baffling, to me at least, was that he said he believed the Sevilla game...

Five Man City wonderkids to watch out for

It’s a good time to be in the Manchester City Academy set-up. I have noted previously in my blogs that the club are totally serious about youth and integrating its most talented youngster into the first-team picture – something which has happened on many occasions this season. With City’s youth system gathering some momentum, I pick out five City prospects to watch out for. Manu Garcia Aged just 17, Manu Garcia has...

Why De Bruyne is already a fans’ favourite at City

The feeling coming away from the Etihad last Saturday was a strange one.

As well as the reoccurring hamstring injury to Fabian Delph, suffered merely nine seconds into England’s game against Switzerland, Bacary...

City’s greatest, Silva, looks better than ever

Manchester City have been phenomenal in their early season fixtures and look to be in great shape already. Manuel Pellegrini’s men have won three games out of three, scored eight goals and conceded none. There have been a number of factors in this, such as the much-improved defensive unit we have seen at the back and the immense form of Fernandinho and Yaya Toure. But there is one certain factor that I think has had the biggest effect...

New signings show City are building for the future

A common theme amongst Manchester City’s transfer business this summer has been the age of the players who have been brought in. Last season, the Blues were unsuccessful in their title defence and ended the campaign without any silverware, and many pointed to the fact that City’s squad was ageing and suggested some serious freshening up was required. It has not been the overhaul that many anticipated, but already the side looks more...
