Manchester City Football Club is an English Premier League football club based in Manchester. Founded in 1880 as St. Mark's (West Gorton), they became Ardwick Association Football Club in 1887 and Manchester City in 1894. The club has played at the City of Manchester Stadium since 2003, having played at Maine Road from 1923. The club's most successful period was in the late 1960s and early 1970s when they won the League Championship, FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup under the management team of Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison. After losing the 1981 FA Cup Final, the club went through a period of decline culminating in relegation to the third tier of English football in 1998 for the first time in their history. The club has since regained top flight status where they have spent the majority of their history. In 2011, Manchester City qualified for the Champions League and won the FA Cup.

Pre season fixtures

A very pleasing preseason winning all 10 of our matches scoring 35 goals and omly conceding 1 in our last game to Udinese

next update: End of August. they will be more detailed reports :D
a very good result and a fairly disappointing Manchester United. despite there shots on target none of them really tested joe Hart. i feel Nigel De Jong was MOM because i asked him to man mark Wayne Rooney which he done to perfection with Wayne only having 1 shot on goal all game and was never given any time on the ball. With time running out Vincent Kompany outjumped Chris Smalling from the corner and powered a header into the top left corner, sending the Man City fans into raptures


with this win i believe we have sent out an early warning that Manchester City will be true contenders this season
August Update

vs Swansea (2-0)Aguero , Y. Toure
vs Bolton (2-2) Milner , Balotelli
vs Tottenham (0-2) Y.Toure , Kompany

so the first 3 games of the season have been completed and im pretty happy with the results despite the draw with Bolton which we were lucky to get anything from. we are currently sitting atop the ladder at this very early stage of the season

Champions League Group Stage

A fairly straight forward group we should be getting out of with relative ease. our main rival for top spot will no doubt be Inter Milan which will be a very tough match especailly at the Guiseppe Meazza. while travelling to russia is never easy either.

Round 3

im quite pleased with the draw giving us a home fixture against Blackburn, ill be expecting to progress
with the squad man city have even before you bought your own players you should be qualifying through the group stage top, or a very close 2nd spot either way good luck
