GONE IN SIXTY SECONDS-UNBELIEVABLE IN MANCHESTER AS CITY ARE CROWNED CHAMPS

City are crowned Champions

On Sunday it was unbelievable. This is the reason why we love football. It was final Sunday for the EPL and lets be honest everybody expected a easy Manchester City victory. No one really cared what happened at the Stadium of Light. The MANCS and myself had conceded the title to City. After Man City took the lead through Zabaletta it seemed though the script had been written. Then in a cruel twist of fate Lescotts error allowed Djibrille Cisse in and he equalised. The MANCS meanwhile led at Sunderland. Surely City would press and take the lead. Then the Joey Barton incident. An off the ball incident with Tevez and then sheer madness as he kicked Aguero in anger. This was definitely the turning point of the game. Im sure Hughes and QPR Fans thought this was the end. 10 men against a hungry City. And who would have expected QPR to take the lead. 2-1 and the MANCS were on course to capture the EPL. Nobody scripted this. I phoned Dr Ebrahim Moosajee probably the only QPR Fan I know in South Africa and shared some banter.

City were pressing. This was destiny. I could see the Ghosts of Munich playing for QPR. Tommy Taylor,Duncan Edwards,Charlton and Best in midfield.

I called my Grandfather in on 90 minutes and said “Papa, Come and see how Man City has thrown the leagues away. All of a sudden I couldn’t see the Ghosts of Munich. They left on 90 minutes. Dzeko equalised and in almost the last kick of the game Sergio Aguero gave City the Lead. I couldnt believe it. 60 seconds has changed everything. Mancini had a job again. City Fans cried tears of Joy instead of despair. Earlier fans were kicking chairs in Anger. They felt they gifted their City Rivals the title.

On the touchline it was sheer emotion.

The City coaching staff celebrated

CITY WERE CHAMPIONS. THE FANS AND THE TEAM CELEBRATED. AMAZING SCENES IN MANCHESTER.

Yesterday I met a gutted MANC fan Mamoo and he told me he almost had a heart attack and he couldnt take such pressure.
For the MANCS they did what they had to do. This is what you simply called DESTINY

    At one stage, city fans were licking chairs in anger. Sunday May 13th 2012. The days the Ghosts of Munich left after 90 minutes.

    In all my years of watching English football, I have never experienced something like this before. My skoon-topie tells me about a 68 final that was played between Liverpool and Arsenal. The Arse had to win by 2 goals, and they scored it at the death to take the league. Warra season and warra final day this was. Football was the winner, and City deserved the title. Red Till I’m Dead. United For Life.

    The 89/90 season I think it was when the Fools were 2min away from the title against the Arse and if I’m not mistaken Michael Thomas or David Rocastle ripped Pool’s heart out with a stunning strike in the dying minutes. I can still picture Steve McMahon showing his team-mates from the bench that there were just 2 min left. Arse won the league by a solitary goal if I’m correct. Forgive me but it was a long time ago so the details are a bit sketchy.

    My dad and I watched the game and we celebrated as if we were Arse supporters. That Arsenal side were brilliant. Seaman, Adams, Winterburn, Smith, Rocastle, Thomas, etc. Liverpool werent too shabby either.

    As a pool man it was low, everyone remembers the aldrige and macmahon gesture. But that was 88/89. Today was unbelievable. As a football fan and and Abu, in ten seconds mancini had a job back and fans were not kicking chairs…..it was destiny

    I have no respect for the City fans who left early though. Win or lose, you support the boys until the final whistle.

    Naseem Mayet In best of the best that was special. Lescott popping up and from the dead sufyaan sarang as champ, that was a close second to this finale. Epic weekend, watching juve vs atlanta now on pvr.
    How crucial was the joey barton incident.
