Manchester City move advertising boards to help them beat Stoke

January 02, 2013

Manchester City have been accused of using underhand tactics to help them beat Stoke City – after being caught moving the advertising boards to stop the Potters from using their iconic long-throws.

Tony Pulis’ side are well known for their set-piece mastery, which has extended to the dangerous use of throw-ins in recent years, with innovations such as towels sewn into shirts helping them lob the ball right into the opposition six yard box.

But keen to avoid Stoke’s aerial bombardment, City came up with an invention of their own, after moving the advertising boards right to the edge of the pitch ahead of today’s match, in order to make it difficult for Stoke players to get the run up needed to propel the football. 

It’s a cheeky ploy, but one they didn’t get away with, after one cheeky fan caught the City ground staff moving the boards on camera. 

The move earned City some bad reviews on Twitter, but after beating Stoke 3-0, they won’t care.
