LONDON - Manchester City always seems to be second best in its own backyard, like a little brother overshadowed by his bigger and stronger sibling. In England's third-largest city, Manchester United always seems to one-up City. What happened when City won its most recent English league title, in 1968? United beat Benfica to win the European Cup, club soccer's most prestigious trophy. And in the 2000-01 season, when the Sky Blues were promoted to the English Premier League, after four years in lower divisions?

In the final moments of the English Premier League's most dramatic season yet, Manchester City had just enough time Sunday to produce one final twist. City looked to have thrown it all away by letting 10-man Queens Park Rangers rally from a goal down to take the lead in the second half and went into the five minutes of stoppage time needing two scores. Meanwhile, rival Manchester United had completed a 1-0 win at Sunderland, and were lingering on the field ready to start celebrating.

When Jeffrey Bussmann began following AS Roma more than a decade ago, finding their games on television was nearly impossible. If he was lucky, he might catch an early morning broadcast on a public station. Thursday, Bussmann stood at the edge of Rhodes Field at Penn, a Roma Club Philadelphia banner draped across the railing. A few feet away, Roma stars Daniele De Rossi and Miralem Pjanic glided across the turf. Italian national team legend Francesco Totti lay face down in the grass, a trainer pulling on the veteran's legs.

England's reigning soccer player of the year Wayne Rooney 's desire to walk out on Manchester United has left the Premier League club in England facing the loss of a third world-class attacker in two years.

MARIO BALOTELLI, the very talented yet mercurial Liverpool striker, has been known to stir the pot, and rarely in a good way. His on- and off-field tactics have usually embarrassed his club and himself, which could explain why he's played for Manchester City, A.C. Milan and now Liverpool in consecutive seasons. Yesterday, after rival Manchester United - which just might be everybody's rival - blew a 3-1 lead in losing, 5-3, to Leicester, Balotelli tweeted, "Man Utd . . . LOL. " As a native Mancunian who has friends on both sides of the City-United civil war, I understand not only the hate the two teams have for each other, but the total dislike they have for Liverpool.

AS A NATIVE of Manchester, England - Mancunians, they call us - I felt a responsibility to provide anyone going to my place of birth to catch the Sixers play the Thunder tomorrow with sightseeing tips.

MARIO BALOTELLI, the gifted-yet-troubled soccer star for AC Milan, has a penchant for doing stupid things. This weekend, he was cited for smoking a cigarette in the bathroom of an Italian train, which was carrying his AC Milan squad to face Fiorentina on Sunday. Club vice president Adriano Galliani said Balotelli will be fined. Balotelli was really ticked off when he heard that the train's ticket collector, who caught him smoking, told Galliani, "You need to pull his ears.

If you want to fully understand a country, you have to understand its sporting rituals. In the United Kingdom, that means deciphering soccer (or "football," as it's known to 62 million Brits). Refined, popularized, and given rules in leisure-conscious Victorian Britain, the so-called beautiful game enjoys quasi-sacred status in the country of its conception, a worshipful feeling best summed up by the late, great Liverpool coach Bill Shankly. A no-nonsense Scot, he once famously declared: "Football isn't a matter of life or death.
