Phil Cragg has lived all over the world, but his heart still belongs to his hometown and the long-suffering football team he has followed since childhood. Being a fan of Manchester City was for many years like being a Chicago Cubs fan in terms of accepting futility or a New York Mets fan when it came to being considered second-class citizens compared with those rooting for the Yankees of English soccer, Manchester United. "We're the best team in Manchester; we're the only team in Manchester," Cragg, who now lives on the Jersey shore, said jokingly while watching Manchester City play Friday night in a "friendly" against Sporting Lisbon at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J. That's what Cragg and others have made themselves believe for a long time, but now it finally might be true.

Last week's rain seems like it was years ago on this fine Cinco de Mayo morning, but as you arrive at your desk, I'm sure there's not much you'd rather do than not start working just yet. That's why blogger Jon Meoli writes the Coffee Companion, where every morning, Monday through Friday, he recounts the biggest local sports headlines. - The Orioles dropped out of first place this weekend after losing two of three in Minnesota, and Buck Showalter expressed some concern about the bullpen's usage since Thursday's doubleheader . In more positive news, Chris Davis says he's ahead of schedule in his return from a strained oblique.

Organizers will announce Friday at 10 a.m. that Manchester City from the English Premier League will face Inter Milan of Italy's Serie A League in a friendly soccer match July 31 at M&T Bank Stadium. The announcement of the event was delayed earlier this week. The game will be played less than three weeks after the end of the World Cup in South Africa. Last July, AC Milan played Chelsea at M&T Bank Stadium before a sold-out crowd of 71,000. Soon after, a $100,000 feasibility study to examine the financial viability of building a soccer stadium in Baltimore was approved.

Manchester City had to make a managerial change for Saturday night's game. Instead of Manchester City head coach Roberto Mancini , the team was managed by assistant coach Brian Kidd , who was a standout player with Manchester United. Mancini, a former star player for Sampdoria, left the team to return to Italy because of his father's health problems. Mancini was manager of Inter Milan from 2004 to 2008, including the record-breaking season in 2006-07 when Inter Milan totaled 97 points, an Italian League record and, until 2009-10, a European record.

Juan Calcagno was hoping that one of his favorite players, Argentine striker Carlos Tevez, would be coming to Baltimore on Saturday with Manchester City to play Inter Milan at M&T Bank Stadium. But Tevez is at home, resting after Argentina's run to the World Cup quarterfinals earlier this month in South Africa. Though disappointed that his countryman won't be playing, Calcagno is planning on driving up from Bethesda with his son, Santino, to see the game. "My 6-year-old got totally crazy about this World Cup. He didn't know anything about the game before that.
