Police ask City to limit derby-day antagonism

A few one-nils and we'll have a chance, insists Mancini

Those with a distaste for Manchester City's spending seem to feel it compels them to play an expansive type of football but Roberto Mancini doesn't care. The manager, who emerged from the last Manchester derby to a barrage of abuse about his lack of ambition, is heading up towards another one desperate to see his side become more boring.

Richards: Arguments just show how much we care

For all the talk of "taking the brand global", for all the references to Abu Dhabi and its oil money, Manchester City is still fundamentally about Manchester. In the early days following Sheikh Mansour's takeover, there was much talk about preserving the role of the club's academy that then could claim to be among the most successful in the country.
