Manchester City v West Ham : Top 5 Conclusions

Top 5 Conclusions:
  1. Carlos Tevez scores his first for Manchester City and could have had many more. He did however, end with two goals at the end of the night.
  2. Carlton Cole can literally score from anywhere, anyhow.
  3. Petrov scored his first goal in more than a year too. A smartly taken free kick to go around the wall and beat Robert Green in goal.
  4. It is hard to understand why West Ham are way too down in the standings despite their sleek passing and their fabulous work ethic.
  5. Manchester City have options galore in terms of forwards.Same is not true for the Hammers, they're way too depedent on Carlton Cole to be their savior.
Many current and former managers, in the form of Sven Goran Eriksson, Tony Pulis, Martin O'Neil, Peter Reid, were in attendance and enjoyed sitting on expensive seats all thanks to Dubai oil riches.

Darren Bent Twittering again

After Darren Bent's infamous rant against Spurs on Twitter during the summer which led him to joining Sunderland and get back to scoring ways. He stopped Twittering during that time period but he's back on! (You can follow him here)

His tweets are never short of providing entertainment and recent one where he prefers his team mates over other Premier League players is interesting too. Catch a snapshot below :

How about following me on Twitter as well?

Monday's Newspaper Roundup

Sunderland to target Spurs' Alan Hutton in January (Daily Mirror)

What I Think? : It would be a great signing for Sunderland if it does happen. He's finally emerging from being on the sidelines due to an injury but Harry Redknapp has players coming back from their loan spells and he might look to strengthen himself. I see it happening.

Notts County chief executive doesn't know where the money is coming from (The Sun)

What I Think? : Magpies have dominated the news in the past few weeks with their high profile takeover, Sven Goran Eriksson becoming the director of football and thereafter Sol Campbell joining the club. (and then leaving it within a game!) Now their chief executive, Peter Trembling has told The Sun that he has no clue of where the money is coming from. This would certainly make things worse for the league two club.

Nani would call Ronaldo before facing Wolfsburg on Wednesday (The Sun)

What I Think? : Nani would definitely need some confidence boost but would he play is the real question? Or would they end up talking about Ronaldo's sexcapades in Madrid?

Walcott tells Wenger, I want to play against Olympiakos (The Sun)

What I Think? : Walcott returning to action would bring the swiftness and pace back to Arsenal and even step it up a notch. However, he shouldn't be made to play the whole game as of yet. Match practice is necessary right now rather than full frontal return.

Tom Hicks and George Gillett at loggerheads again. This time over Middle Eastern riches (Daily Mail)

What I Think? : Tom Hicks and George Gillett have been acting like a couple with bad understanding and yet not ready to budge and divorce the other. We witnessed it earlier and we're seeing it now again. Saudi prince, Faisal bin Fahd bin Abdullah, sat alongside Gillett and witnessed Liverpool thrash Hull by 6 goals to 1. The Saudi group want to invest £200-350 million and garner 50% stake in the club. Liverpool currently are under debt of £245m and plan to build a newer stadium. This would help the club and it would be better if one of Gillett or Hicks let go.

Image : Sir Alex as the fourth official

Everyone would have heard about the controversial late, LATE winner by Michael Owen in the Manchester derby last weekend. The fourth official indicated stoppage time of four minutes while the game went on until the sixth minute. Now there have been many comments made on the topic, some against the referee and some in favour. On the lighter side of things,

5 Reasons why City won't beat United


Manchester City travel to Old Trafford for the Manchester derby tomorrow and despite City having won all games I see their run ending.

1. Despite City's huge squad, Adebayor who is out suspended after his stupidity against Arsenal would be missed. Bellamy or the other attacking midfielders don't look like making any impact.

2. Rooney on the other hand has been in hot form along with his club who beat Spurs last week thus ending the Londoner's 100% record.

3. Mark Hughes' record against his former club as Rovers boss has been a dismal 2 wins out of 8 games in the Premiership.Of course, this is City with a different squad and truck load of money but the trend would continue.

4. There is no Tevez to do an Adebayor to his former club.

5. City have won at Old Trafford only once since 1974.

I would be shocked if it ended in a draw as well.
