John Stones Repalcement 0

What are our options if Stones is out for a while?

With Ruben Dias not set to return atleast for a few more weeks, this was the worst poossible time for John Stones to suffer a knock. I do understand that it is just a precaution, but you would not want Stones to play in the big games when he is not at a 100%. These upcoming fixtures against Athletico and Liverpool are ruthless and anything less than the very best...

Pep Guardiola and our final run in 0

Glimpse into Pep’s mind before the season finale!

This is a man who lives for the pressure situations and big occasions. Infact, greater the pressure of the situation, higher is his passion and intensity. What surprises me the most about Pep is his ability to be unfazed when things are not going according to plan. It looks like Pep would have to utilize all of his pressure absorbing character in this final lap of the season. The scenarios...

Yan Couto could be the next Dani Alves 0

Yan Couto: The Next Dani Alves

In an era when Pep has splashed huge money on Full Backs, a 6m Euro player in Yan Couto might well prove to be his greatest ever full back signing. This is a signing that has flown under the radar, but i am confident that his performances in the future will be mesmerizing. If Pep was given an option to create his own full back in a lab, the final...

Pep Guardiola's Succesor 0

Man Utd showing City what not to do when appointing Guardiola’s Succesor!

Shambles might be a very under-rated word to describe the managerial circus going on at Manchester United right now. They are said to have Pochettino, Ten Haag, Luis Enrique and Thomas Tuchel on their shortlist. But what surprises me the most is, the contrasting styles of each of those managers on the shortlist. This tells you that United have lost their identity as a club. They do not even know...

Matheus Nunes in the eyes of Man City 0

Matheus Nunes: City’s Fernandinho Replacement

In the recent months, talk of a Fernadinho replacement has cooled off, but the fact remains that he is 37 years old and we need to get in a replacement as soon as possible. I understand that Haaland might be the primary priority for the club, but we all know how important a defensive midfielder is for Pep. We have won titles and broken various records even without a striker,...

Sterling back to form 0

Could Sterling be the joker in the pack for City?

Sterling has almost been in the wilderness for the last month and most people were convinced that his future was uncertain. Specially with the talk of Haaland getting louder with every passing day, Sterling seems to be on the forefront to get offloaded. I don’t know what it is with Sterling but i will have to take my hat off to him. Everytime he has been written off, he comes...

Southampton vs Man City 0

4-1 scoreline? Honestly we were defensively crap in that Southampton win!

Yestreday’s defensive performance would have even made the strongest of hearts beat vigorously. It was like an accident waiting to happen every second. John stones had the worst pass completion rate and Laporte was beyond crap. I don’t understand what it is with Laporte that he has these lapses in concentration suddenly. We saw it against Crystal Palce in October and also against Spurs in that loss at the Etihad....

Southampton vs Man City 0

This FA cup tie against Southampton is a must win for us!

Most people believe that Southampton is where the decline of Man City’s fabulous form began. It seemed like a normal premier league game where we would be comfortable in the end. But, i must say that nothing about that game was comforting. It would have been okay for me if we had lost that game due to Southampton scoring a penalty or nicking a set peice. But, the worrying fact...

Man city vs Athletico Madrid 0

What do you guys think about the Champions League draw with Athletico Madrid?

Honestly, i still cannot decide whether i am happy or sad about the draw. Villareal was the team i desperately wanted to avoid, specially due to their frustrating low block. Most people thought i went crazy when i wrote in my last blog that i would actually love us to get Bayern. The reason was that i wanted us to play end to end free flowing football and not strain...
