The Blizzard: Manchester City 3-2 QPR, 2012
"It's finished at Sunderland, and Manchester United have done all they can. That Rooney goal was enough for the three points. Manchester City still alive here. Balotelli..."
It was only a matter of time. On today's episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard, we're heading back to the most extraordinary final day of any modern Premier League season. We're joined by sports journalist and broadcaster Flo Lloyd-Hughes who, curiously enough, is a QPR fan. We recount that historic day as City overturned United's eight-point advantage in the last five weeks of the season and won the Premier League title on goal difference for the first time. And this all through the lens of Flo and the QPR fans around her who were swept up in the celebrations and partying alongside their home equivalents, as they were spared relegation by a Jonathan Walters goal for Stoke!
