nice story so far, Douglas Costa is awesome!

Thanks bud. Yeah Douglas Costa is awesome isn't he. He's got great pace. The thing that annoys me about him though is that he's too selfish and wastes great scoring opportunities. Still a great player though :) .

More Comments would be appreciated. :P
give him an individual training regime to look for the pass rather than shooting, should help a bit :)

Thanks Mate! Will do :)
Your story's been moving pretty fast. You haven't made a hoard of signings, which surprises me, but also, you have paid quite a bit for the ones you sold.

Yeah, I've been wanting to get really good players who are already close to their full potential - Unfortunately these don't come cheap . However, I might change my strategy - I'm not sure though. :)

January: The Blue Moon Rises

City 3-1 Man Utd PRM

A vintage display at the Ethiad ensured 3 MASSIVE points against our arch rivals and Title challengers. City fans turned out in their numbers and saw their side play Sir Alex's United off the park. Yaya Toure (9.1))

Spurs 2-1 City FA Cup 3rd Round

The right side definitely passed through this stage of the competition on the day. Spurs dominated us and passed us off the park.

Everton 2-6 City PRM

Another fabulous display by the lads in the league silenced the Godison Park faithful and showed the country what we are capable of as a team. Sergio Agureo was UNBELIEVABLE and put in the perfect performance to bag his first hat-rick for the club. Sergio Aguero (9.7)

City 2-1 Stoke PRM

This wasn't our best performance of the season but it was still enough to beat this very mediocre Stoke side on the day. Douglas Costa was outstanding - his performance epitomised by his 35 yard wonder strike into the top right hand corner of Thomas Sorensen's net. Douglas Costa (8.3)

In the league we were lethal during January and we fully deserved our 100% win record. I'm not too bothered about the Spurs FA Cup result as my main ambition is to win the League this season.

January business for City

City manger Craborum Toon has been very busy in the January transfer market and has made 3 big deals. Young Striker: Leandro Damiao (17.5m) from Intenacnial, Ricardo Carvalho (FREE) from and young English Steven Caulker from (7.75m).

Caulker will arrive after his loan spell with Swansea at the end of the season and Carvalho will arrive when his contract is up at the end of June - I signed Carvalho for cover to my 1st Choice center backs.

These are very exciting signings for and I'm sure all three will have very successful careers at the Club.

Leandro Damiao

I will post screenshots of Caulker and Carvalho when they arrive at the club. :P

Please comment on my signings guys :)
OH MAN DAMIAO FOR ONLY 17.5M!! That's a steal, a god-damn steal!
I don't know what dole/duty is best for him, but experiment and figure it out. He's scoring almost a goal a game for Arsenal in my Man Utd save. Bloody monster.

I know - A great buy! I'm sure he'll be great for me! :P

What do you think of Caulker and Carvalho? :)I'll probably play him as a Poacher on his own upfront.

February: Surely Now

Wigan 0-4 City PRM

An incredible display of attacking football ensured 3 big points on the day - Wigan just couldn't create anything and just could't get out of their own half. What a display!!! Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (8.8)

Spurs 2-3 City PRM

What a result!!!!!!!! A City side completely INSPIRED by new boy Leandro Damiao on his League Debut. 2 wonderful goals including the eventual winner showed the Man City faithful what a wonderful talent he is. I'm sure there is much, much more to come from him in the future. Leandro Damiao (8.8)

City 4-0 Swansea City PRM

Yet another cracking display saw the Centurions play Swansea off the park and send their fans return to their homes in a great mood. Douglas Costa (9.1)

Inter 2-3 City Champions Lge 1st knockout round

YESSSSSS!!! An amazing match! So many twists and turns. This gives a very healthy advantage to take home to the Ethiad. Douglas Costa had another outstanding display but the game changer was undoubtabley Klaas Jan Huntelaar scoring the equaliser and the winner. Klaas Jan Huntelaar (9.1)

City 4-0 West Brom PRM

Well - we were world class again against the Baggies playing some brilliant football. Damiao again putting in a solid performance scoring his 4th league goal in 4th appearance for the club. But Douglas Costa was just ridiculous - everything he did was to the highest quality. Douglas Costa (9.2)

This was my best month as Manchester City gaffer by a mile. We had some tough times but showed great character to get through these and end up on top. A memorable month as well for Brazilian wonder star : Leandro Damiao who's incredible form saw him win the Premier Division Player of the month of the month award in his 1st month at the club.

Meanwhile Douglas Costa was awarded with the Young player of the month. Last but not least I won my 1st manager of the month award for the teams incredible results and irresistible football being showcased.

Premier Division League Table - Top and SURELY the title

I know this was a very long post guys but there was a lot to get through. Hope you enjoy reading it!

Comments would be really appreciated :) :P
12 games, 10 points ... don't get cocky. :P

Also, DAMIAO IS AWESOME! Isn't he? :D
#64314 Gurdit : 12 , 10 points ... don't get cocky. :P

Also, DAMIAO IS AWESOME! Isn't he? :D

He is a MACHINE!! Yep - your right, title isn't over yet! Think 1996 when the mighty toon were 12 points ahead at the top and let it slip so anything could happen.

March: Showcasing the Brilliance

QPR 1-3 City PRM

Another sterling performance from the lads meant we saw off QPR in a (it has to be said) a reasonably close encouter - You never know; if they took thier chances we could have been in a rather sticky situation. The goals came from Leandro Damiao who bagged yet another Brace and Douglas Costa who scored an absolute stunner - running through practically the whole of the R's defence to slot past Paddy Kenny. Leandro Damiao (8.8)

City 2-0 Boton PRM

This was a walkover really and we Took full advantage by sealing the 3 points in front of the Blue army in Manchester. Yaya Toure (8.4)

City 3-2 Inter (6-4 on agg) Champions Lge 1st Knock out rnd 2nd leg

Even though we already had a 3-2 advantage on aggregate - we still had to focus. Inter really tested us early on and they were rewarded when Wesley Snieder nodded in Diego Forlan's inch perfect cross. However we fought back and secured a monumental victory for the club. Leandro Damiao (8.7)

City Draw Real in Europe


Sunderland 0-1 City PRM

A decent performance saw the citizens beat the Mackems in a nervy encounter. A leandro Damiao header on the cusp of half time proved to be the winner. Micah Richards (8.3)

Wolves 0-2 City PRM

Samir Nasri inspired the side to a convincing 2-0 victory over Wolves at Molineux. His performance was rewarded with 2 goals of the highest quality. Samir Nasri (8.6)

City 3-1 R. Madrid Campions Lge qtr final 1st leg

GET IN!!! W brilliant performance secured an incredible win on one of the biggest nights of the club's history. We outplayed them! This gives the initiative in the 2nd leg at the Santiago Bernabeu. Marek Hamsik (8.9)

City 2-0 Liverpool PRM

This fixture was slightly overshadowed by the club's achievements in mid-week. Despite fielding a slightly weaker team, we still managed an important win to further enhance our lead at the top. The goals came from Vincent Kompany (THE ROCK) and Samir Nasri. Vincent Kompany (8.5)

A very good month for us again - Highlight being our result against R.Madrid in the Champions League. As you will see on the table we have secured Champions League football again which is a relief. Again Leandro Damiao has been truly outstanding nothcing up 9 goals for the club in 12 appearances in total - 17.5m is proving to be a bargain for him - Gurdit, you were right my friend!!!!
The Premier Division League Table - Ours to lose?

April: The Blue Moon HAS risen

R.Madrid 4-2 City (City win on away goals rule) Champions lge qtr final 2nd leg

What unbelievable . are pretty much unbeatable on their home turf and they showed that in this match but the character we showed to fight back to win was outstanding. The old work horse Joleon Lescott gave the Citizens the of the tie with a towering header from a Samir Nasri corner. UNBELIVEABLE!!!

Norwich City 0-2 City PRM

This was a good opportunity to rest a few and I did just that. 2 goals from Sergio Aguero was enough to secure 3 points against the Canaries at Carrow Road. Sergio Aguero (8.7)

3-0 City PRM

This was a dismal display and we were deservedly punished by a very clinical side - spear headed by the pace of Gervihno.

Man Utd 2-2 City Champions Lge semi final 1st leg

I really wanted to kill Gael Clichy after this match. Oh well - 2 very valuable away goals gives us the initiative heading to the Ethiad.

City 6-0 Aston Villa PRM

A truly irresistible performance from the lads - led by the figure of Klass Jan Huntelaar who contributed a magnificent hat-rick. We were soo good that we were 6-0 up at half time!!!!! Klaas Jan Huntelaar (9.6)

City 1-1 (City on away goals) Champions Lge semi final 2nd leg

This really was the ultimate showdown and again thanks to my beloved away goals rule we were headed to the Champions final.

Its the Title for Toon and The Citizens

Following Man Utd's negative result against West Brom - have won thier first ever title. Manager Craborum Toon has been the Surprise package of the footballing year as no one expected him to bring anything to the blue side of Manchester. The City faithful have publicly spoken of their Jubilation and hailed their side during their Parade of the city in an open topped bus.


2-1 City PRM

Well - really we were outclassed today and didn't put up any sort of a fight since we took the lead through Leandro Damiao.
