A few have already been found, but the real kicker in this is that tweeting posters that are found to @KICKTV is the ticket to two seats at Yankee Stadium for Man City-Chelsea this Saturday.

The 2012-13 season is finally at an end for England's Premier League clubs. For Manchester United, it has ended in celebration and two of the club's greatest servants leaving on their own terms.

Manchester City may have just announced in New York yesterday that they are planning a massively adventurous business venture in partnership with the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball to launch New York City Football Club, but there is more to the club's visit to the area than meets the eye.
Manchester City and baseball side New York Yankees have announced they will create an MLS expansion side called New York City FC. The club will join the league in 2015, when it will become its 20th club. City's owner Sheikh Mansour will be the majority partner of the new team, with the Yankees also actively [.

Having already wrapped up the Premier League title, Manchester United capped off a wonderful campaign with an extraordinary 5-5 draw against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns. United twice led by a three-goal margin, but the home side – inspired by Romelu Lukaku's second-half hat-trick – managed to battle back each time.
And so, even in the dying embers of its latest edition, the Premier League didn't fail in living up to expectations, signing off the 2012-13 season in incredible fashion.
The first 5-5 draw of its era, a nail-biting hunt for fourth spot between Tottenham and Arsenal and a handsome helping of 36 goals across 10 fixtures all made for a very entertaining finale to the Premier League campaign.
FA disciplinary panels can expect plenty of overtime next season if Manuel Pellegrini succeeds in bringing Pepe to the Premier League. The Malaga boss is widely expected to become Manchester City's new manager and reports in the Spanish media suggest that he wants to make the Real Madrid defender his first signing.
Manuel Pellegrini has announced he will leave his post at Malaga at the end of the season, paving the way for his likely move to Manchester City.
Speaking at an awards ceremony in Malaga, the 59-year-old said, "On Sunday, I will take charge of my last match at the Rosaleda. I would like to thank the owners of the club for putting their trust in me.
Samir Nasri has talked up Manuel Pellgrini's prospects of success at Manchester City while suggesting former boss Roberto Mancini was unable to get to grips with different personalities in the City dressing room. The France international was full of praise for the man widely expected to become his new manager.

Liverpool are understood to be lining up a move for Manchester City defender Kolo Toure, who is currently in New York City after arriving for the club's US post-season tour.
Manager Brendan Rodgers is looking for replacements to fill in the gap left by retired centre-back Jamie Carragher. Toure is out of contract at City this summer, and is unlikely to be offered a new deal, so it offers Liverpool a unique opportunity to step in for an experienced 32-year old defender who could provide cover for Liverpool at the back.

Arsenal are apparently closing in on the signing of young Manchester City midfielder Abdi Ibrahim who has been on loan for the last few seasons away from his parent club. This would seem like a strange move for Arsenal to make but the Norwegian has been on a host of Premier League club's radars for many years and it appears that City have resigned themselves to selling him because of a lack of room in his favoured defensive midfield role.
Manchester City have today announced a deal to acquire New York City FC with a partnership involving the New York Yankees. City owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan successfully acquired the new franchise with Manchester City being the majority owner of the club.

Roberto Mancini was fired at Manchester City a year after guiding them to the Premier League title due to the lack of success in the time since. Second spot in the league though without a trophy this year cost the Italian his job.
21.05.2013 -Sunday People publicó al colombiano Radamel Falcao García (27) como el inminente y primer fichaje del nuevo Manchester City de Manuel Pellegrini (DT) a cambio de £ 54 millones (cláusula de rescisión impuesta por Atlético Madrid).

Whenever we're given the opportunity to disprove Manchester City's silly claim that the city is theirs, we gladly take it. For City's final game of the season today there were empty seats all over the place, despite the club claiming the game was a sell out.
By the time of the final whistle, when City players took part in the customary lap of honour, the ground was half empty, with the fans that did bother to show up passing up the opportunity to applaud their players for finishing 2nd.
After an initial outpouring of sympathy from Manchester City fans, some rather sad stories have come out in the tabloids regarding Roberto Mancini's reign at Eastlands. Papers have spoken of players wanting to go out and celebrate the sacking of a man they saw as vain, egotistical and dictatorial. However, it appears that Mancini has [.
