I REFER to the back-page report "City eye world domination" (NST, May 15). The incredible performance by Manchester City in the 3-2 win over Queens Park Rangers, which saw City capturing its first title in 44 years by pipping Manchester United on goal difference, will surely be remembered by football fans for a long, long time.
It was simply fantastic, dramatic, marvellous, nail-biting and vintage English football that decided which team was crowned the English champion.
Manager Roberto Mancini's team, showing great teamwork, fighting spirit, a never-say-die attitude and the ability to remain calm and composed, turned things around for the Blues and kept it at the top of the English Premier League, considered the toughest in the world.
Falling behind 1-2 to QPR at the Etihad, many fans thought it was all over for City as Man United were leading Sunderland in the other decider, when Edin Dzeko gave City hope with an equaliser in the second minute of stoppage time.
With less than a minute remaining, City went all out for the last assault of the match and were duly rewarded when Argentine Sergio Aguero scored the most important goal of his life and the match-winner for City, making it 3-2. The Etihad erupted in joy.
It was simply English football at its very best, captivating the hearts of millions who watched the match live.
Mancini deserves credit for City's success.
It was his ability to turn things around with his man-management skills, great motivation and inspiring talks, excellent strategy and tactics that paved the way for his team, which had lived for a long time in the shadows of Sir Alex Ferguson's United.
