After backing Phoenix against the Lakers earlier in the (brief) NBA season, I was fooled again into thinking that Kobe wouldn’t show up to work with the right attitude. He did, and the Jazz felt it.

With that disappointment fresh in my mind, tonight is a night for going back to basics.Manchester City host Sunderland this evening, with the 6-0 drubbing by the newly rejunivated Chelsea galacticos still fresh in their minds.

Sven’s men want nothing more than to erase this blip in form from the minds of the football public, and what better way than to reassert their authority at home to a Sunderland team who have failed to win in 9 of their last 10 outings?

City will also be boosted by the return of Martin Petrov (the Fantasy Football enthusiast’s favourite pick), which should see them extend their home record to a perfect 7-0-0.
