There a film a few years back "How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days",your typically flaky chick flick. However it seems as if City are determined to star in their own sequel, how to lose the League in ten games. For me, last night was the final nail in the coffin of the hopes for automatic promotion as it showed that City don't have the mental strength or the confidence to get over the line.
It was set up perfectly for them to push on and pile the pressure on the rivals. A confidence

But too many consumers want the best comfort, price and entertainment for the least possible effort.

4) Limerick complained some more. Media cited
