Instead of being in my seats at The Etihad, I was in The Celtic Manor in Newport where I had just keynoted “Winning in a Crazy World” to 450 soccer coaches at the Wales F.A. National Coaches Conference.  Having followed City legends Yaya Touré and Gaël Clichy on stage, I rushed down to the Cellar Bar at 4.01pm and settled in for another Man City roller-coaster ride.  I was surrounded by the 2022/3 cohort of UEFA Pro-Licence candidates I’ll be working with for the next two days – a Man City coach on one side, a Liverpudlian on the other.  What a game!


Liverpool won – and so did we.  2-nil down until the 72ndminute – and then three goals in five minutes.  Incredible.  Our 4thPremier League Championship in five seasons.


Superbia in Proelio.
