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 for the first time in their history in 1998. In 2008, the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group and became one of the richest in the world. In 2011, Manchester City qualified for the Champions League and won the FA Cup. In 2012, the club won the Premier League, their first league title for forty-four years.
Unproven manager and ex Everton, Malaga and Barcelona midfielder is appointed as Manchester City manager as Roberto Mancini fatally retires at the age of 46 as he wishes to spend more time with family. Brocklesby has recently desired to make Manchester City his only managing club and aims to make Manchester City the best team in the World.

Community shield


New signings

Manchester City manager suggests this is the team to win this league, though he aims to also add the quality young Swiss defender Ricardo Rodriguez from Wolfspurg for a suspected £45m, but believes he will not be making anymore big signings until next summer as he would love to make a HUGE summer booster signing next season.
Two big money moves there, I hope they fit in to pay off their price tags.
I know mate, and there fitting in pretty good tbh, i keep rotating the squad, but it was mainly for the long term sort of thing, so nobody else snatches them up, but they are doing pretty well!:D
Hello, Liam.

With Manchester City's side boasting of World Class talent already, you have done a good job getting Sakho to sure up the left-back position. You can't go wrong with Iker Muniain as long as you train him and give him some playing time. The signing of Carlo Cudicini seemed unnecessary, but a free transfer shouldn't really bother your finances.
Are you planning to sell anyone? I would suggest getting rid of the deadwood, because you honestly don't need them.
Congratulations on the Community Shield win.
Hiya mate, and yeah, and hes a quality young lad, hes been played every match since i bought him :D , and the thing is Joe Hart is injured :(, but i dont want to sign a big star to take his place, and he was there and he has great experience so, it was a clever deal in my eyes :P. Im planning on selling tevez next season, simply because i dont like him, but you will have to see who i sell in the posts i keep putting on so you will have to keep looking ;).
And oh cheers mate, proper boosted my confidence and also the teams! :D
Didn't quite understand signing Puncheon? And with Damiao and Ba you have 5 strikers now, will you be able to rotate them enough to keep them happy?(Lots of big egos :P)

Would like a shot of your formation and especially interested in knowing how you are using Yaya Touré.
He's young, fast, and i like him :D and basically i play 3 or 5 upfront every match, Ba is a back up, if someone gets injured, but also can play on the wings and Damiao is my main striker know!:P and ill post it up next for you and show you!:D

This is basically the team i would send out there every game, with exceptions for injuries and international games. I rotate Iker Muniain around with the strikers and some games play three at center defence, Sakho, Luiz and Kompany. :D

So with Kompany at right-back, Zabaleta, Richards and Maicon are screwed? :P

And I notice there is no playmaker either? :S

Silva is your most creative player and he's out on the wings.

And with one CD, aren't you afraid if the opposition plays 2 or 3 strikers? (Alot of teams in prem play 4-4-2). And also on the counter if the winger gets past your full-backs, he'll generally have 2 people to aim at and Luiz can only mark one. :P

And sell Tevez 35mil ish and get Cavani 27mil ish since you don't like Tevez?
Richards is out on loan at Ac Milan, and yeah, Maicons pretty screwed, oh well :P
And Oh yeah :( oops, and Yeah i understand what your saying but silva plays so well on me on the wing, and he always has done, but i will swap stuff around if you want?:) see how it works :D Cheers!
And i was thinking something like that yeah! Or Neymar, im a fan of him :D
