We at Vital Manchester City have decided to show an unusual and perhaps morbid look at Liverpool’s demise. Is Rafael Benítez one game away from the sack?
Four games played, four games lost. At last, the tide is turning and about time too. At the start of the season I had Arsenal as favourites to drop out of the so-called Premier Leagues Top 4 but it appears I might be wrong, perhaps it could be Liverpool?
With the Liverpool – Manchester United game starting two hours ahead of City’s home encounter with Fulham on Sunday City boss Mark Hughes has this to say…
‘I’m relishing the fact the other two are playing each other. It’s a big fixture in the sporting calendar, and irrespective of our ambitions this year, everybody looks at that game because it’s a big one and there’s huge focus on it.’
‘Maybe this year we’re looking at it with a different view and with renewed interest.’
‘You hope the teams in and around you stumble so you can take full advantage of that. Obviously, in years gone by, we’ve been more used to mid-table teams and the like, and looking at their results.’
‘Maybe now we can say we’re looking at the top teams around us and hoping they’re going to fail.’
I saw this on ESPN America and for once, agreed with their TV pundits. Do you?
Oh how the mighty are beginning to fall!
