Many headlines read of a shock result, but i [...]

Atishoo -Atishoo- They all Fall Down

I see Kyle Walker is a little upset over what City manager Chris Hughton said that he went down easily to win a penalty in the capitol One game on Wednesday Night. I find Walker's comments a tad strange at the least,  but perhaps show the attitude of the modern player, Walker said: "I'm from up north. I'm not going to go [...]
