Just in case there is any doubt about Manchester City’s massive ambitions – after spending close to £300 million in two seasons for a Carling Cup semi final – the club has confirmed it still boasts both the widest pitch and tallest floodlights in the land.
The massive news, confirmed through crowd sourcing encyclopaedia Wikipedia, comes as a relief to City fans, thought to be concerned that the 2003 move to Eastlands from Maine Road had diminished the club’s massive status.

Made me laugh when the commentators mentioned that City had 6 players in the England side today. Barry, Hart, Johnson, Milner, Lescott and Wright-Phillips – hardly the heart and soul of Manchester!
Take out Wright-Phillips and they hardly have a complete season in a City shirt between them. Fergie will have the boys wound up come derby day.
