TITLE TOWN: In London, Henry Winter reported Man City fans held aloft a banner declaring “Oops we did it again” to celebrate their second title in three years. The fans "streamed onto the pitch at the end, celebrating with the players, taking selfies, pleading for souvenirs of shirts." Pellegrini talked of Man City’s “flair,” and of football being “an entertainment business” (TELEGRAPH, 5/11).
PARADE PLANNED: In Manchester, Jennifer Williams reported more than 100,000 "are expected to congregate in the city centre" for Man City's title parade on Monday. Beginning at 5pm local time, the Blues "will gather on-stage in Albert Square, which will be decked out with big screens as it was in 2012." Players "will then set off on their open-top victory bus down Mount Street, moving through the gathered crowds down Peter Street, Deansgate and Cateaton Street -- before ending up in Exchange Square." The three-hour procession, "which also celebrates the club’s Capital One Cup triumph back in March, will be followed by a squad trip to Abu Dhabi, so players can show off their new trophy in the club chairman’s native country" (MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS, 5/11).
