Manchester City 2-0 Fulham There are no guarantees Brahim Diaz will still be at Manchester City beyond next summer but the Spain Under-21 winger offered a glimpse of what the club will be losing if he does depart for Real Madrid. His first and second goals in City colours were enough to consign Fulham to a fifth successive defeat and secure a place in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals for the competition’s holders. While Fulham named almost a full-strength side, they were no match for a youthful City. Yet Pep Guardiola’s delight at Diaz’s performance, a similarly enterprising display from another brilliant teenage talent, Phil Foden, and a debut for youngster Claudio Gomes will have been tempered by the sight of Kevin De Bruyne limping off five minutes from the end. De Bruyne appeared to flex his left knee after Fulham defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah, on loan from Manchester United, landed heavily on the legs of the Belgian, who was sat in an upright … [Read more...] about Manchester City stroll past Fulham with Brahim Diaz double but Kevin De Bruyne limps off

Time and time again, the Manchester Evening News has reported on incidents on the M60, M62 and M56 which have sent shockwaves across our local road systems. The result is familiar to us all. Weary waits and wasted time sitting in stagnant queues on key routes like the Mancunian Way, Trinity Way and the A580 East Lancs Road. Tuesdays are the worst days for congestion in Manchester. Nobody knows why. November is the worst month, which could be something to do with the weather and Christmas. Whatever the reasons, incidents at rush hour often lead to traffic chaos. Three times over the last three weeks, huge swathes of Greater Manchester’s road network have ground to a halt. On Tuesday, April 17, commuters suffered 90-minute tailbacks on the M60 near Eccles after a two-lorry crash. Exacerbated by a broken-down HGV, queues stretched back to junction 18 for Holmes Chapel and affected roads around Salford. A week later, on April 24, a serious crash on the M60 between the East Lancs Road … [Read more...] about Why DOES one incident on the M60 bring Manchester to a grinding halt?
