City continue global expansion

Manchester City have bought Melbourne Heart, who site at the foot of the Australian A-League and boast former Liverpool flop Harry Kewell as their star player.

This purchase follows the establishment of New York City FC in the US, a club formed in conjunction with the New York Yankees. They will play in the MLS in 2015.

They have not shown much heart this season, however, winning just one of their 15 league matches.

They also have the longest winless run in the A-League this season (14) and the longest losing run (five). Indeed, their first victory only came last Friday, 3-1 against the Newcastle Jets with Mate Dugandzic scoring twice.

This may be a reason why their average attendance is 10,000 in a stadium that holds 30,050.
