Funny how things turn out. This next season is shaping up to be a very interesting one and the spectre of Jose Mourinho is going to hover over the Premier League for the entire season.

Watched the game, made some tea, kicked around the odd thought and I'm just not seeing the same game that apparently everyone else is.

Carlos Tevez played his last game for Manchester City on Sunday. Fact? No, at least not yet. But I'd be stunned if the Argentinian is in English football by the start of the next campaign. Tevez is a fabulous football player; he's been part of a magical season, helped City tweak United when it was useful to do so and would be welcome on any team in the world. I'm also convinced that he's done with City.

Think back, if you will, to another weekend in May. The time is 4.42pm on Sunday May 30th 1999 and Robert Taylor has just put Gillingham, managed by Tony Pulis, 2-0 ahead against Manchester City in the Football League Second Division play-off final. If I told you right there, right then, that 12 years later City would win the FA Cup, against another Tony Pulis side, would qualify for the Champions League and be the richest club in the world? Well... I think I'd have been locked up!
