Ipswich Town have been a staple of the English football second tier since 2002, but a torrid season looks set to consign the Tractor Boys to League One football. Ipswich were one of the finest sides in England during the late 1970s and early 1980s, winning the FA Cup and UEFA Cup under the guidance of the legendary Bobby Robson. Manchester City announced in 2011 a sponsorship deal with Etihad Airways. The stadium was renamed to Etihad Stadium for the next 10 years. The sheiks from Abu Dhabi didn’t buy just a new name to the stadium, though. The owner of the club, Sheikh Mansour, invested his oil dollars big time to strengthen the squad. Many top players joined Manchester City in the last couple of years, which resulted in winning the team’s first Premier League title in 2012, and the first top-flight title for the team in 44 years. Now, the main task for the club is to conquer Europe and win the Champions League. Spanish giants Real Madrid are their big example, as they have won this title already 9 times.
