Manchester City

 By David Mooney

Manchester City's disappointing title defence is nothing new for the club

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini speaks after his team's 3-0 victory over West Brom

At this stage in the season, even the most die-hard of Manchester City fans will be looking over their shoulders at the chasing pack rather than setting their sights on Chelsea at the top of the table. While any shot the club has at winning the league is now remarkably slim, it's not totally out of the picture -- although it might need a minor miracle now for it to happen.

It's something of the same old story for the supporters and it's a story that crosses a number of eras. Being defending champions...

Manuel Pellegrini and Manchester City need to revamp squad to reach targets

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini speaks after his team's 3-0 victory over West Brom
Real Madrid's Sami Khedira could be a useful addition to Manchester City's midfield. That he is available on a free transfer makes him an attractive option.

Manuel Pellegrini might have arrived in England with the moniker of The Engineer, but signs are he will need the intricate skills of Isambard Kingdom Brunel this summer to get Manchester City firing again.

With a summer season of wheeling and dealing in front of them all, the Premier League big spenders will already have begun the long process of drawing up targets, having them followed, scrutinised and reported on, and putting together shortlists of whom they see as their ideal purchases.

Chris Smalling, left, has reportedly drawn transfer interest from Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.

As the summer window draws ever closer, the transfer rumours and gossip continue to spread.

Wenger could swoop for Smalling

One reason Manchester United find themselves firmly entrenched in the top-four battle has been the play of Chris Smalling. He has been a terror at the back and has contributed some well-timed goals off set pieces along the way, too.

Apparently his play has been noticed down London way by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger. The Mirror is reporting that the Gunners are trying...

Manchester City's Cristiano Ronaldo bid bound to upset Man United

The ESPN FC crew weigh on in Cristiano Ronaldo's relationship with Gareth Bale and the rest of his teammates at Real Madrid.

As the summer window draws ever closer, the transfer rumours and gossip continue to spread.

City players convinced Ronaldo is on his way

For quite a while now, it's been generally accepted that it was only a matter of when, not if, Cristiano Ronaldo would return to Manchester.

In an interesting turn of events, though, it seems that cross-town rivals Manchester City have muscled in on a potential deal for the Manchester United hero. Speaking to Revista de La Liga, Spanish football expert Graham Hunter...

Man City's performance down the stretch will reveal much about the club

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop says Arsenal still have a legitimate claim to second place after City's performance against West Brom on Saturday.

It has long been said that hope is the most controversial emotion in football. It is the feathered beast that perches inside the heart and flutters its wings at all the wrong moments. It flaps and agitates at every sign of life. It also has a terrible habit of reappearing on occasions when it would be preferable that it stayed away.

With the second half of Chelsea's faltering performance against Hull City beginning at the KC Stadium, Manchester City supporters will have been wondering quietly...

1. Respite for Pellegrini

How Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini must have dreaded this match.

After just three wins in 12 games and a clear lack of invention from his attacking players, the last thing he would have wanted was a visit from Tony Pulis and West Brom. But while Pulis can take 11 men and build a defensive stockade that might keep anyone out for 90 minutes, it's...
