Next visitors to the Etihad Stadium are Portsmouth, these are fighting above expectations and are sitting currently in 15th place, and after that disastrous defeat to West Brom I will be looking for a better result in this match, with now only being 1 point ahead of Manchester United and being so close to the end of the season I will be looking for as many wins as possible, especially with the last 4 games of the season where I will look to take maximum points from every game left.


Man City 3 Emmanuel Adebayor,Yaya Toure,Carlos Tevez
Portsmouth 0

Man City Emmanuel Adebayor 8.7 (MOTM)
Portsmouth Ricardo Rocha 7.0

That win was needed to put me back top of the league with having this evening kick-off against Portsmouth, a good performance was needed due to the bad game against West Brom, Good goals from Adebayor and Tevez,Yaya Toure and also a fantastic performance from Emmanuel Adebayor earnt him the Man Of The Match Performace!

Sunderland are the next visitors to the City Of Manchester Stadium, this is going to be a tough game as they can be very underestimated team, and they can beat any team if they play fantastic on their day, but I can see this being an easy win maybe a couple of goals in it, so maybe a 3-1 finish.


Manchester City 4 Aguero,Tevez,Gordon(og),Coentrao
Sunderland 1 Seb Larsson

Manchester City Yaya Toure 8.0 (MOTM)
Sunderland Sebastian Larsson 7.4

I was only looking for a couple of goals in this match, fantastic performances by the whole squad, Coentrao is having a good City career so far since I signed him in January he has been consistent and has notched up 3goals so far which I'm happy with him as I know he isn't the best goalscorer on the game. But with abit of training he could improve season by season! (hopefully)

Up next is the Champions League Quarter Final against rivals Chelsea, this is going to be a hard game against these as I can never seem to cement myself against them and always have to push my team to get a result, lets hope we can get a win out of this match and aim for a draw in the 2nd leg.


Chelsea 2 Mata,Lukaku
Man City 1 Hazard

Chelsea Juan Mata 8.2 (MOTM)
Man City Eden Hazard 7.5

After going 2-0 down in 15 minutes this was going to be a bad result for my team, but luckily we struck one back from a fantastic run from Eden Hazard to get a goal back, so all I need is 2 goals in the 2nd leg to go through to the Semi-Finals for the 2nd year in a row!
Up next is newly promoted Burnley, this should be an easy game as this is one of the smallest team in the league so I should easily think its a win in the bag, but I don't know til the match comes.


Burnley 1 Michael Duff
Man City 0

Burnley Michael Duff 8.1
Man City Fabio Coentrao 7.1

This wasnt the result I expecting, wasnt happy with the team after this result, after this loss it knocks me down to 2nd place because of Goal Difference. But a superb win for Burnley and this is an upset in the Premier League. Next up Chelsea in the 2nd Leg of the Champions League Quarter-Final
Next is the 2nd leg of the Champions League Quarter-Final against Chelsea, After going down 2-1 in the first leg I only need one goal to take it to extra-time or get the two goals and knock Chelsea out of the Champions League. Will be putting the strongest side out and try to capitalize on chances they miss to counter attack.


Man City 2 Eden Hazard,Carlos Tevez
Chelsea 2 Milos Krasic,Frank Lampard(pen)

Man City Eden Hazard 8.6 (MOTM)
Chelsea Milos Krasic 7.5

After a good display from the team we got a draw out of the match, but was unlucky to go out 4-3 on aggregate to Chelsea, So we will just have to try again next year and see if I can get into the semi-finals as I did last season.

After the bad result to Burnley I will be looking to build on it and totally dominate the next game against Queens Park Rangers, I'm still reeling in anger after that terrible loss and the team no about it after they put in a good performance against Chelsea and the morale should be high after I praised them with having a good result in the match despite the result.

I want to win every game I have left so it gives me a chance of retaining the title, but that tiny slip up cost me the lead in the Premiership and I will need to win every game and Manchester United to slip up in one match to give me a chance of pushing them to the end of the season with only Goal Difference separating us in the League

I will look to reinforce my defence, and look to bolster my attack force as Balotelli and Adebayor want to leave and I don't want to sell Emmanuel Adebayor is my top goalscorer this season and can't afford to lose him, if he isn't consistent next season I will look to sell him in the 2014 January transfer window!

Next to arrive in Manchester is west london side Queens Park Rangers yet again this should be another easy win, but as the last match saw we drew the match which should of been won, I've brought new players which could change this game and give me that vital win I need to push United.


Man City 7 Jagielka(2),Adebayor(3),Tevez,Paloschi

Man City Emmanuel Adebayor 9.6 (MOTM)
QPR Anton Ferdinand 6.8

Wow! what a match that was, a very excellent display from my team it just shows that a tiny blip can kick the arses into gear of my team and get a superb 7-0 win and that takes me top by Goal Difference :)
Some good results there. Those youngsters look really good aswell. Keep it up although it was a poor result against Burnley.
Now down to the final four games of the Premier League 2013/13 season this is a very close league as only goal difference is separating me and Manchester United at the top of the table and Chelsea only being 5 poins behind.

The Final 4 Games for the top 3
Manchester City
Arsenal,Liverpool,Chelsea and Aston Villa

Manchester United
Tottenham,Everton,Fulham,West Brom

Fulham,West Brom,Man City,Sunderland

I need maximum points from every game for me to retain the Premiership Title and this is going to be a hard thing to do as I have 4 big teams left. But I will try my best to get what I need and hopefully Chelsea and Manchester United slip up for me to keep the title!
#34546 Walsall_Craig : Players who I'm interested in:
Gianluca Buffon-Juventus
Iker Casillas-R.Madrid
Igor Akinfeev-CSKA

Philippe Mexes-Roma
Pepe-Real Madrid
John Terry-Chelsea

or if you have any ideas of your own please drop me ideas

If I had to choose, I would choose Igor Akinfeev and Pepe,
Very difficult matches ahead of you, hardest against Chelsea ;]
Up next we travel to the Reebok Stadium to face struggling side Bolton Wanderers after the impressive win over QPR last week it gives my players a boost to perform with the last remaining games, But I feel this will be a easy win in the bag I don't think I will score as many as I did at QPR but it will be atleat 3/4-0 to me


MAN CITY 4 Adebayor (2), McBean (2)

BOLTON Luke Chambers 7.1
MAN CITY Adebayor 9.2 (MOTM)

Another good result which still keeps me top and takes me down to the final 4 games of the season and I will do anything to retain back-to-back Premier League titles. Also a fantastic debut for Jack McBean my young loan signing from LA Galaxy, will only cost me £2.5million if I want to sign him end of the season.
Very good match, I also have just won 4-0 away :D
Next is Arsenal at the City Of Manchester Stadium, the pre-match odds have made me clear favourites to win this match and I will look on this to win the match and hopefully United slip up and it will take me 3points clear of them


MAN CITY Szczesny(og),Hazard
ARSENAL Gervinho

MAN CITY Eden Hazard 7.8 (MOTM)
ARSENAL Gervinho 7.4

A good result against Arsenal that pushes me closer to that Premier League title again, but will all fall down to how Manchester United get on in their match later on this evening. A great performance from the team to come from behind and win the match, thanks to a Man Of The Match performance from Eden Hazard.
