After the match Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini said, “To win like this is incredible. I think I have never seen a finale like this.”
Yesterday, for the first time in 44 years, Manchester City won the English Premier League title. What does that really mean to me? Not a whole lot. But, as I watched Manchester City play QPR yesterday afternoon, it was the way they won that grabbed me. Man City had to score not once but twice in stoppage time to pull the title from the hands of their rival club Manchester United.
EPL soccer in itself is an incredible spectacle. The massive stadiums filled with some of the most passionate fans in the world. When all goes correctly, the game can truly be “the beautiful game” that we hear about.
