A quick run through the news this morning hasn't yielded very much, really, but here are a few links to start you on your way this morning.  Be looking for the CHN 5 points preview of the Manchester City match around 6:00 GMT tomorrow morning.  I've tried to embrace my fear of the numbers... we'll see how it goes!  Anyway, a quick link dump follows the jump!
