Long shot, but my nephew is now football and Man City obsessive and my brother in law cant stand it. He suggested for his birthday that I could take him to a Premier League match in England, but he expects me to organise it all.

Is it easy to get tickets for Man City games, doesnt have to be a high profile game? And, do teams still train for the public nowadays?

A quick look at the Man City official ticket website suggests the Southampton game on Wednesday is now on General Sale, so I would suggest it's do-able.

Depending when you are looking to go, but maybe Tottenham v Man City at Wembley on weekend of 14th April?

When Newcastle can't afford to pay their 1st team and are forced to field a youth team in their next match, including a 15 year old goalkeeper, losing 13-1 away from home.

Sterling puts City ahead. I'm not the biggest fan of his, but he's having a ruddy good season, with loads of goals and assists.

Young gets his first goal in over a year at Watford.

when you have no goals in you, it isn't usually a good idea to concede one in first half injury time. Might as well go home now
