Manchester City

 By Andy Mitten

Beyond United and City, Greater Manchester is the mecca of football

Manchester averages more than 122,000 spectators between Manchester United's Old Trafford, pictured, and Manchester City's Etihad.

Manchester United and Manchester City may dominate, but there are eight professional football teams in Greater Manchester. Britain's second-biggest conurbation, of 2.5 million, is a football city that also boasts numerous semi-professional sides playing to average home crowds as high as the 2,000 that attend the games of FC United of Manchester, the breakaway club that formed after the Glazer takeover of Manchester United in 2005. They're about to move into their own new, £6.3 million, 5,000-seat...

Joe Hart believes that Manchester City teammate Sergio Aguero eclipses even Barcelona star Lionel Messi as the best striker he has ever faced.

Messi described Hart as a "phenomenon" following the goalkeeper's recent performance when the two came up against each other in the Champions League.

Hart managed to restrict Barcelona to just one goal at the Camp Nou in their round-of-16 second leg clash last week, making a string of saves that kept the score down to 1-0 prevented the tie from being settled...

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.

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...

Arsenal mull Chris Smalling move, Man City and Chelsea eye Felipe Anderson

ESPN FC's Raphael Honigstein gives his take on whether or not Julian Green will be loaned to a club in the Premier League.
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...
