Talking Points – Man City vs Nottingham Forest

It would be insane for me not to start the article with Erling Haaland. All the talk in the Premier League circles is how do we even get close to him. The attributes of Raw strength combined with extreme agility is very rare and makes Haaland a phenomenon. I am quite sure that Haaland torments defenders in their most beautiful dreams as well. Such is the fear he injects into...

Man City vs Newcastle 0

Have Newcastle really shown other teams how to get at City?

As the first half was drawing to a close at St James Park, Pep was just not able to withstand the lack of control on the game. After all, Pep prides himself on the ability of his teams to control the vast majority of moments in a game of football. Specially in the last 30 mins of the first half, it seemed as if Newcastle had runners form everywhere. We...

Real Madrid vs Man City 0

How do you expect the game at Bernabeu to play out?

Champions League nights are very hard to predict like we saw against Atletico in the previous round. There is always that sense of surprise round the corner and the unexpected is generally the norm at this stage of the competition. For me, Real Madrid are the experts in terms of dealing with unexpected situations and coming back from absolute darkness. You just have to look at their comebacks in the...

That narrow victory against Real Madrid is still stinging badly!

Champions League nights can be very cruel and it has been proven on many occasions that teams don’t always get what they deserve. I understand that fortune does play a part in these knockout competitions, but we literally had no excuses for our inability to bury Real Madrid and kill off the tie.

Erling Haaland deal closer than ever as report states that City agree terms with his representatives

This past week has been a clear example of how much City have missed a classical Number 9. Yes, we have missed a ruthless finisher to put away the beautiful art created by KDB and others. But, more than that we have missed a presence upfront that could offer an out ball during the bad phase of the game. Yes, i am talking about the Atletico Madrid tie here and...

Blood, Bruises and Delight : The complete story of City’s quarter final tie with Atletico Madrid

What a second half that was! I was rubbing my eyes in disbelief as i was seeing Atletico play out of our press time and again with such ease and simplicity. How could Atletico play one touch football with such precision. It seemed absolutely impossible. But, here it was bamboozling the City defense time and again. It seemed only a matter of time before we conceded the first and maybe...

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...

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...

Man City win at Brentford 0

Patient City show great character to cruise past Brentford!

As the game went past the half hour mark, the silence at the Etihad was deafening. You began to wonder if this was going to be one of those frustrating nights for City. At this point, i was thinking about that 2018-19 season, when Liverpool gave up that huge lead in February. The situation was more tense than what most people would like to believe. With Liverpool having to play...
