Mancini trying to be more like Ferguson nasally as well as managerially…

Hello and welcome to this weekend’s review of the sporting action! On the dock today are the usual Premier League Football, Test Cricket and the finale of the Rugby Six Nations. On with the post!

So as the title suggests, there was some embarrassment for Manchester City yesterday as they were stunned by Everton 2-0 after their manager (see above again) was fooling around for charity. Considering Everton were coming off the back of a 3-0 loss to the mighty Wigan, this result was a little unexpected. However it just goes to show what a dangerous team Everton can be at home, and I wouldn’t rule them out of Champions League spots just yet. The problems for the Citizens were further increased as Manchester United squeezed out a narrow win against Reading to increase their lead at the top to 15 points. it seems as if Ferguson’s ‘squeaky bum time’ isn’t going to be so squeaky this year. However down at the bottom a thrilling fight is increasing even further in tension. Southampton snuck a great win against Liverpool to continue their red and white hot form. Meanwhile Aston Villa stopped QPR’s mini-revival to help themselves a little clear of the drop zone. Wigan also gave themselves hope of escape as they beat Newcastle 2-1 thanks to, outrageously, a goal that should have been disallowed for handball. Thanks ref!

In the cricket, Dhawan’s (hoping I spelt that correctly) madcap fastest debutant century helped the third Test between Australia and India to a certain draw with two days still to go. The great pity was that the number 9 batsman for Australia, Starc, was out for 99 and will probably never get a Test century. Meanwhile in New Zealand England are closing in on a victory over their hosts but the weather appears to be on the Kiwis’ side. Certainly, we’ve been highly unconvincing this tour and on the form for both teams the Ashes will be quite a damp squib.

Now to the Rugby, where Wales burgled the title from under England’s noses this weekend. I’ll be doing a review/ round-up of the tournament as a whole tomorrow so I’ll leave my comments until then.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed this review of the big events from the sporting world this weekend. I’ll see you tomorrow for some Rugby.
