    Simon Curtis

    David Mooney

  9. It was not to be for Sunderland

    Colin Randall

  10. Man City's class shows in cup final

    Miguel Delaney

    WEMBLEY, London -- Just as Sunderland seemed ready to start thinking about ending a 41-year trophy drought, they were blown away with two minutes of the most brilliant quality. That is modern English football; that is the modern Manchester City. T...

  11. City stars eye Wembley springboard

    Richard Jolly

  14. Don't worry, Gus: fans dreaming of cup also pray for survival

    Colin Randall

  15. Kompany's chance to emulate Doyle in League Cup final

    Simon Curtis

    David Mooney

    This week, I have been watching a hell of a lot of "Robot Wars" on YouTube. Yeah, I know, it's a bold opening to talk about a TV show that was aimed at a niche market AND that ended 10 years ago after being shifted around the Channel Five schedule, b...
