Exclusive Interview with Ben Riley

The day to day life of a physiotherapist

By Aaron Leggott

At the age of 23, Ben Riley will not be the most famous person we will ever interview. Just two years after graduating from the University of Huddersfield, he is trying his utmost best to fulfill his ambition of one day being the physio at Manchester City. We love people who have high targets, and couldn't resist asking him about his hopes and dreams.

"Ideally I would love to end up on the City bench. That would be a pretty cool job. But in reality, City can employ anyone they want on a worldwide scale, and I can't ever see myself being that lucky."

Two dramatic goals from Edin Dzeko & Sergio Aguero in injury time secured the most spectacular come-back in the final few moments of the 2011/2012 Premier League season as City were crowned Champions. The finish was reminiscent of the play-off final in 1999 against Gillingham with City coming back from a 2-1 deficit to beat QPR 3-2. The victory ended a 44 year wait with the 44th Manchester City shot on target being the winner in the 95th minute before the mayhem erupted in and around the Etihad Stadium.

Let's not forget Yaya's birthday present!!

By Dave Walker

There’s a birthday party with a difference being planned in Manchester this weekend – 47,000 invited guests but the onus is on the host to supply the perfect present.

Birthday boy Yaya Toure hits 29 years of age on Sunday, yet it’ll be down to him to bear gifts for the partygoers who descend on his ‘house’ in M11 3FF and send them home happy.

Is the Premier League finally heading to East Manchester?

By Aaron Leggott

To say being a City fan these past few decades has been tough would be an understatement. After our infamous League Cup victory way back in 1976, there were signs of cobwebs starting to appear in our trophy cabinet. That was until Yaya Toure secured the FA Cup at Wembley against Stoke last season, and it seems that the Ivorian giant has done it again to clinch the Premier League for the Blues barring a miracle.

City vs Newcastle: Match Preview

Same again please... 44 years on!

By Dave Walker

If history repeats itself at St James’ Park tomorrow afternoon, Manchester City will be just one step away from being proclaimed Premier league champions.

It’s 44 years since a marauding City, under Joe Mercer & Malcolm Allison, took Tyneside by storm winning the last game of the season 4-3, and with it the old Division One Championship.

The parallels between then and Roberto Mancini’s team are uncanny; if City win it will be their 10th away victory of the season – the same as 1968. Thus far City have recorded 17 home wins – the same as 1968 – but that will surely change to 18 with a win over QPR on 13 May.

City 1 - 0 United: Match Report

From heaven to hell? Another title twist put's United's title ambitions in doubt

A Glaswegian pensioner edged closer to meeting his maker as Sky Blue heaven appeared on Manchester City’s horizons at a turbo-charged Etihad Stadium.

Sir Alex Ferguson will be hoping a derisive put down of the blue side of Manchester is not a self-fulfilling prophecy come the Premier League finale on 13 May.

He famously retorted ‘not in my lifetime…’ when asked if City – flush with Sheikh Mansour’s riches – would ever finish above United.
