    And Cote d'Ivoire out of AFCON. :( And that probably does it for their "golden generation".

    9 points is nice, but still too early to declare the title race over.

    The question is, do you think Mancini is a competent enough manager to get City onto the kind of winning streak they would need to catch United?

    Indeed, although United would have to lose enough games first.

    1 it won't happen twice in 2 seasons
    2 City aren't playing as well as last year, with their "key" players bar Aguero underperforming comparatively
    3 easier schedule arguably, with City having to come to OT and not the other way round
    4 we have RVP this year
    5 we have RVP this year

    Alan Hansen said something that also outlines one of the big differences between the two Manchester sides - City have a better squad, United have a better team.

    That's why Everton consistently punch above their weight. Since Moyes took over they have finished above many sides with better squads, but none of those sides have had a better team.

    When you have strikers helping out in the box with defending and tracking back down the field to break up opposition passing then you know you have players who are all about the team and not just themselves.

    I'm surprised that no Everton transfer target has purchased him for their girlfriend.

    It's liverlol allegedly.

    Against debrechen when their goalkeeper was bribed to let in 3 goals liverlol managed a princely 3.

    Lol.

    Chelsea don't need dirty money, they are owned by a Russian Billionaire already :p

    Liverpool in comparison are poor, although why millionaire players really feel the need to accept money to damage the game they play is beyond me.

    Maybe Torres was involved and he'll be banned for the rest of his Chelsea contract. Right?

    Right?
