Few outsiders would have expected Hull City to beat the current Premier League Champions, but the Tigers ran them close in an end-to-end encounter at the KC Stadium last Saturday. The home team responded well to Manchester City taking an early two-goal lead and fought their way back into the game with some excellent attacking play.

As the dust settled after Rangers’ latest away defeat, the post-match feeling was one more of optimism than pessimism in contrast to the routs at White Hart Lane and Old Trafford. For Rangers displayed the battling qualities that will be required in the coming weeks if Harry Redknapp is to ensure the club retains its Premier league status come what May.

In January 2009 Manchester City did their best to put a brave face on a massive disappointment. The new boys at football’s top table - thanks to the 2008 takeover by the Abu Dhabi United Group - had grand plans for their team.

Being an exiled Fox living in Poole, I have personally witnessed the rise of a player from the semi-pro ranks up to the Premier League, in the guise of Charlie Austin.

It must have been an odd start to the season for the Crystal Palace team.

City and Chelsea fire the first shots in the title race http://www.footballscores.com/superblog/city-and-chelsea-fire-the-first-shots-in-the-title-race/ http://www.footballscores.com/superblog/city-and-chelsea-fire-the-first-shots-in-the-title-race/#comments Wed, 24 Sep 2014 15:19:14 +0000 Danny Pugsley http://www.footballscores.com/?p=11835

It would need more than a liberal dose of hyperbole to make the suggestion that Frank Lampard’s headline-grabbing late equaliser at home to Chelsea this past Sunday kept Manchester City’s Premier League title hopes alive, but by rescuing a point they ensured that the gap to Chelsea remained at five, rather than eight points.

There is an alarming increase in the number of people smuggling offensive weapons into football grounds – and the authorities seem not in the slightest bothered about it.

It was vital for morale and confidence that Liverpool bounced back from last Saturday’s Premier League defeat to Aston Villa with a victory over Ludogorets in the Champions League on Tuesday night, and whilst it wasn’t pretty, it may have given Brendan Rodgers an indication of his best set-up for the team.

West Ham fans far and wide were all expecting the same old story – we get linked to 'marquee' signings who were unable to come to an agreement, so we bring in some has-beens instead.
