MCFC Vs Reading - Player's Lounge Saturday 24th Nov K.O. 7.00pm

Ex-rag and bottler extraordinaire Steve Coppell brings his Reading side to Manchester on Saturday as they attempt to end City's 100% record at Eastlands this season.

Coppell famously quit as City manager in 1996 after just 33 days in charge, citing a stress-related illness. If he thought earning a fortune to sit in a dugout was stressful, he should've tried being a fan back in those dark, dark days.

Reading won 2-0 in last season's corresponding fixture, courtesy of a brace from Leeroy Lita. But, the Royals have only taken six points from their last five games, while the Blues have racked up 10 over the same period. And crucially, Reading only have a single point from their six away fixtures so far, following a draw at The Swamp on the opening day of the season. City, meanwhile, can boast the full complement of 21 points from their opening seven home fixtures.

MCFC Dubai will once again be setting up camp at the Player's Lounge bar in Bur Dubai's Chelsea Hotel, with the more "enthusiastic" amongst us arriving at around 4.30pm. The match kicks off at 7pm (Dubai time) and will be featured live on the big screen with full English commentary.

The day's other fixtures include Newcastle Vs Liverpool at 4.45pm (Dubai time), Everton Vs Sunderland (7pm), Bolton Vs The Stretford Rangers (7pm), and Derby Vs Chelsea (9.15pm).

football spread bet said...

got to say, im absolutely gutted. Currently running a little spread bet which included Rangers doing this quadruple the blue half of Glasgow have been talking about. Looks like the value of my £10 initial bet will have diminished significantly after last nights performance....
