Man City v Newcastle

Postby Conner99 » Sun Aug 11, 2013 4:12 pm

Man City will have new manager Manuel Pellegrini at the helm as they begin their quest to win back the Premier League title they surrendered to neighbours Man Utd last season . The summer has seen Pellegrini add several new names to the side ..at a cost of £90 million , Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo, Fernandinho and Stevan Jovetic ..Pelligrini claims his side have the best squad in England .

It will be up to Pelligrini to prove that starting with a win against Newcastle .


Newcastle will start the season with manager Alan Pardew trying to improve on a rather dismal position of 16th last season ..only 5 points above the relegation zone . Since then Joe Kinnear has been made director of football much to the dismay of most fans and even Alan Pardew is uinhappy at having to report to Kinnear ..will this all affect the team to some degree or lead to clashes with Pardew and Kinnear ...time will tell , but right now a tough first match against the premier league runners up awaits .

impossible to predict Man City's line up with so many new players coming in and a manager that has never managed in this country.

it could go beautifully for Man CIty or it could be an utter disaster. i think they'll find it hard and Newcastle will have a good go at them.

i predict a draw with Man City missing a hatful of chances. 1-1

Did you know that City had the best defensive record last season conceding just 34 league goals.

Also Newcastle have never won at the Etihad stadium with a record of (D2 L7) so it could be a tough night for Le Toon.

Any more predictions for tonights match?

It is said the only certainties in life are death and taxes. True, but they missed one out - the Barcodes will always lose against City. Man City 4 Newcastle 1.

Well Taylor is a moron for that pointless foul. I have respect for the Geordie fans who travel long distances to watch their team get humped week after week. They must (surely, occasionally?) wish the team would 'park the bus' for some of these tricky away ties. Trouble ahead for Newcastle second half, and for the rest of the season.

HT

Man City 2-0 Newcastle

As Pickles said before Steven Taylor was sent off just before the break for lashing out with his arm at Aguero, :shock:

No surprise in the score line, Newcastle were always going to get beat here. City look annoyingly good, slick and organised. Not only that, they seem to be of a more attacking mind-set with Pelligrini at the helm. They are my tip for the title this season, but it is difficult to truly judge them when they are playing the Magpies, who insist on pressing the self destruct button.
As for Newcastle, it is looking grim. Arsenal are sniffing around Cabaye, and the fact that Pardew didn't play him suggests he wants to go (can you really blame him?). Very little transfer activity, more nonsense appointing Joe Kinnear as Director of Football (remember Dennis Wise when Keegan was manager?) points to another season of chaos.

Comprehensive victory for City under Pellegrini's expert tutelage,even if Newcastle
had kept 11 men on the field they would still have been open to Cities persistent
and swift attacks.

Cities midfield were constantly opening up Newcastle's defence,Navas in particular
looks made for the Premiership,and Yaya Toure alongside the invention of Fernandinho
is just a complete superstar.

4-0 and the scoreline scarcely flattered City ,even after Newcastle lost Taylor for
his indiscretion.... Like Pickleman said before me ,City look composed and capable
of quelling the threat of a counter attack ,simply by passing the ball about so deftly.

Good teams slowly take the heat out of the game ,great teams snuff the flame out
completely....City look proficient enough to do both equally as well.

FT

Man City 4-0 Newcastle
1-0 Silva 6’
2-0 Agüero 22’
3-0 Touré 51'
4-0 Nasri 75’

It was a resounding victory for Manuel Pellegrini in his first league game in charge of Man City with Navas having a great debut

Any more comments on tonights result?

Man city looked quite dangerous tonight!
More dangerous than i expected to be honest ,but Newcatle should not be a measuring stick for them.
What i did like was that their passing accuracy was far superior than under the previous manager.
I guess every player in the league under new management are out to prove themselves so it's a bit unrealistic to expect this level of play once Pelligrini has settled and player recognize who he thinks his first team is.
If he can keep them guessing throughout the season ,he will have a title winning team i'm quite sure of it.
