Our next travels are to Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium, this again should be an easy win like the previous match, I won't be going for my strongest squad because I will give my youngsters a chance in this game to get match practice and see how they perform against Wigan.



WIGAN James McCarthy 7.5 (Man Of The Match)
MAN CITY Emmanuel Adebayor 7.3

After this terrible result against Wigan, I'm going have to be looking forward to the next match against Tottenham as they have spent a fair bit of money updating their squad and pushing up the table to try and automatically get into the Champions League for the 2013/14 season.
I will definetly looks to beat Spurs so I can dent their title chances and boost my chances of retaining the Premier Title.
The next Premier Division game is against 4th placed Tottenham Hotspur, this is a must win game for me as I'm already 10points clear of them in the table and want to extend my lead over them and the other teams Manchester United and Chelsea.

I will definetly be putting out my strongest squad, but my front line wont be the strongest as I've lost both Adebayor and Tevez for 2weeks :(
So will be playing a different formation with Sergio Aguero as the lone striker with Eden Hazard just behind the "defoe and van der vaart way"


Full Time
Manchester City 1
Tottenham 0

Manchester City - Micah Richards 8.3
Tottenham - Younnes Kaboul 7.4

With this win it takes me 4points clear of Manchester United and on course to winning the title yet again, but anything can happen in the last few months of the season. Was a very good display and a fantastic shot by Fabio Coentrao to score his first goal in Man City colours.
Ouch! Poor result against Wigan.

Scraped it against Tottenham as well.
That time of the year….loss against Wigan and narrow win against Tottenham! Now you are on the final stretch and any win will do.

What are your remaining fixtures? I would probably lay off playing the youth talents in the EPL as against Wigan this backfired and points are so valuable at this point.
Yeah, I wont be playing my youngsters til pre-season now to give them games. I'm going to go with my strongest squad, as I still have Tevez and Adebayor are out for another week and half I think, and David Silva is injured for 4months, so having to re-arrange my team to get it so we can retain the title come end of the season.

and here are my last remaining games, plus I have a chance of going all the way to the final of the Champions League as this is the only trophy I can win apart from the Premiership
Last 4 games are really tough!

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Villa. If you get 9 or more points from that then you will have done an amazing job!
Up next is Kobenhavn in the 1st Champions League Knockout round, I don't want to underestimate this team as you can never be secure in a match in the Europeans top trophy, I will definetly be looking to win this match to advance further into the knockout stages.


Kobenhavn 1 - Thomas Delaney
Man City 5 - Yaya Toure(2),Phil Jagielka(2),Eden Hazard.

Key Men
Kobenhavn ~ Thomas Delaney 7.3
Man City ~ Phil Jagielka 9.3 (Man Of The Match)

All I can say in this match is wow! 6 goals in the first half is awesome, having fantastic performances from my players and 2 goals from both Phil Jagielka and Yaya Toure and one from the "wonderkid" Eden Hazard, with the chances we had in this game we should be in atleast double figures, but only thing that is stopping us from doing that is their goalkeeper, and 5-1 in the first leg is good as they will need 5 goals to win on aggregate.
After that dominating win in the Champions League there is high morale within the squad and are looking forward to playing Everton who are our next opponents, Everton are lying 9th in the Premier League and hope to push up the table to qualify for Europa League next season. A easy predicted game in this I think, which will extend the lead to 4 points ahead of Manchester United, and help us on the quest for back to back titles.


Everton 1 Ola Toivonen
Man City 3 Sergio Aguero,Emmanuel Adebayor,Phil Jagielka

Key Men
Everton Ola Toivonen
Man City Samir Nasri 8.5 rating (Man Of The Match)

Another good win in the bag for my team against mid-table Everton, the result showed they have nothing on us, onwards and upwards for my City team, If I win the league this will be the first time I've done it FM, fantastic performances from Adebayor and Aguero and also a future captain performance from Phil Jagielka.
I'm very happy with my results and with how the season is going so far, with not many games left to go, I will be looking for 3points from every game, but I'm really looking forward to the last 4 games of the season to see how many points I can pick up from Arsenal, Chelsea,Liverpool and Aston Villa.

Godman, here are your transfers you wanted to see from Manchester United and I will also list what players are being used from reserves/youth


as you could see they let players go but never bought anybody.


This season they did buy but not as many as I thought they would.

Looking at the squad they haven't promoted any young players or reserves.
That is interesting.
But if United want to easily push me for the title next season they are going to need to spend because I'm going to be updating my attack force, with either Neymar,Pato or even David Villa
I would go for Pato or David Villa as you have lots of players like Neymar.
Up next is visiting Fulham this is another easy win for me, as I've dominating them in the past seasons.
With my squad back upto scratch apart from David Silva, so should be 3points in the bag


Man City 3 Aguero(2),Prezioso
Fulham 0

Man City Sergio Aguero 9.2 rating (MOTM)
Fulham David Stockdale 8.3 rating

A good result but we should of scored alot more with Fulham going down to 10 men within 8minutes of the match with Brede Hangeland getting two yellows cards, also a fantastic freekick from 30yards for Aguero to score to give me the win I needed to extend my lead. And the gem I signed for £2million gets his first goal in City colours. And Aguero added his second when with a precision striker from the 18 yard box
Good result against Fulham, title's all yours :D!
Yeah, but if you look at my last 4 games they are awkward hoping to get 10 points from a possible 12
