  2. End of season review: Manchester City

    David Mooney and Simon Curtis

    Intro It's been a funny season because clearly everything has changed at City. At the start of the campaign, it seemed the brand-new style of play the manager had imposed wasn't working as often as it was. City were often open and easy to break do...

  3. Boring is as Pellegrini does

    David Mooney

    Manuel Pellegrini is a very boring man. There's just no getting away from it; even in a week when he completed a domestic double -- only the second ever in Manchester City's history -- he's barely been noticed. He's a man who courts no controversy, g...

  4. City's deserved success, Rodgers' achievements, more

    Gabriele Marcotti

    Manchester City's final day was about not screwing things up, which, inevitably, might have made it anticlimactic to some. But that's not what matters. Nor do the statistical nuggets -- they were top for only 15 days! -- mean anything. What counts...

  5. City seize on rivals' slips to claim their crown

    John Brewin

    MANCHESTER -- The streets of Manchester were filled with noise on Sunday night. City fans belted out songs of praise for, variously, Manuel Pellegrini, Pablo Zabaleta and, loudest of all, Steven Gerrard. In English football, schadenfreude is always a...

  6. Pellegrini's methods lead Man City to Prem glory

    Richard Jolly

    Win or lose, the hangdog expression has tended to stay the same. That is the Manuel Pellegrini way. A man who tries to take the emotion out of every situation, Pellegrini was animated at full time -- but only by his own standards. He punched the a...

  7. All hail the champions

    Simon Curtis

    Was this the day we waved good bye to "typical City" and stepped out into the harsh light of a brave new world? Some will hope not, after decades of spectacular failure and belly laughs at every corner. Manchester City just aren't Manchester City wit...

  9. La Liga heats up, sad scenes in Italy and Spain, more

    Gabriele Marcotti

    Ladies and gentlemen, La Liga just got a whole lot tighter. Going into the weekend, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid had, among them, won 78 of 94 games against the other 17 teams in La Liga, or 83 percent of matches. But this past mat...

  10. And then there were two in the Prem title race

    David Hirshey

    After some 360 games and almost as many different league leaders, here's the one thing we know for sure: nothing. This season has been so wildly unpredictable that I just phoned in a last-second Ladbrokes bet on Sunderland to win the league. But ...

  12. Hart plays hero for City in crucial win at Everton

    David Mooney

    And breathe. My word, that was uncomfortable viewing. Manchester City's trips to Goodison Park are very rarely comfortable viewing, anyway, unless you're of an Evertonian persuasion, and, for that reason, any visiting fan from Saturday evening wou...

  13. Gareth Barry thriving at Everton

    Richard Jolly

    The cameras may be trained on the directors' box. Or they may be focused at an executive box, that familiar haunt of the injured or ineligible footballer. The man himself is famously impassive. But should his expression change when Everton host Manch...

  14. The joy of early goals for Man City

    David Mooney

    Racing out of the blocks and taking the opposition by storm; putting defenders under pressure; forcing errors in the opening stages to give themselves a real commanding position as early as possible in the game. If you can knock the stuffing out of y...

  15. Highlights: Crystal Palace 0-2 Manchester City

    ESPN Staff

    Yaya Toure's peerless display dragged Manchester City back into the Premier League title race in a controlled 2-0 win at Crystal Palace. Fit-again Toure teed up Edin Dzeko's 24th goal of the season before firing his 23rd as Manuel Pellegrini's men...

  16. City and Palace have colourful Allison in common

    David Mooney

    There's plenty of history between Manchester City and Crystal Palace, even if the two clubs have met fewer than 50 times in competition. When it comes down to games between the two, there have been few "important" matches; there have been no cup fina...
