Sneaky Buggers! Man City moved their advertising boards to defend Stoke’s long throw-ins

pic e1357060388166 Sneaky Buggers! Man City moved their advertising boards to defend Stokes long throw insManchester City are being accused of craftiness after their match with Stoke on New Year’s Day.

Prior to the kick-off against the Potters, a photo began circulating on social media sites showing Man City workers moving the advertising boards around the pitch at the Etihad.

The significance of the picture appeared obvious: by shrinking the space between the touchline and the ad hoardings, Stoke would be restricted in their ability to launch long throw-ins into the Citizens’ box.

To illustrate just how far Man City moved the adverting boards, below are a series of pictures contrasting the Etihad pitch during the Stoke match compared to how the pitch looked in City’s previous home match with Reading.

(Match highlights: Manchester City 3 – Stoke 0.)
