I've been a sports writer since 2010 and a lover of the beautiful game for as long as I can remember.
I'm an avid Manchester City fan with an eye for what goes on past the results.
Some say knit-picking, I say analysing.
I still have a cut out of a postage stamp size league table from a newspaper in 2003 when City played their third game of the season away at Blackburn before others played. A late Anelka goal sent us top of the table.
I thought that was the only time I would see us top of the Premier League.
