Tuesday 12th November 2013 – Manchester City v Liverpool (Premier League)

MCFC Starting XI – Hart, Richards, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy; Milner, De Rossi, Toure, Nem; Silva; Cavani SUBS – Friedel, Zabaleta, Varane, Barry, Bale, Nasri, de Jong

Liverpool Starting XI – Reina, Kelly, Carragher, Skrtel, Assou-Ekotto; Lucas, Garcia; Johnson, Gerrard, Ruiz; Suarez SUBS – Crump, Enrique, Cana, Henderson, Borini, Coates, Agger

Probably one of the most complete performances in Kinkladze’s reign has seen City once again score plenty of goals and keep a clean sheet. Cavani is showing to be worth every penny of his £55m transfer fee by bagging his first hat-trick for Man City today. The defeat also led to Rafa Benitez being sacked by Liverpool with the Club lying 17th in the League.

Final Score – Manchester City 4 (Cavani 14, 61, 89, Toure 34) Liverpool 0

MOTM – Edinson Cavani

Attendance – 47,405

Saturday 23rd November 2013 – Manchester City v Manchester United (Premier League)

http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj595/MCFCDAP/CityvUnited_zps477b2ed1.png

The first Manchester Derby of the season is upon us, as City host United at the Etihad Stadium. City go into the game having only dropped 2 points all season and only conceded 3 goals, United haven’t quite been at the races yet having already lost 4 games this season and find themselves 9 points behind City, with City also having a game in hand.

City have been hit with some injury news before the game, as David Silva has returned from International duty injured and will miss two weeks. On a positive note though, Sergio Aguero looks set to return to the line-up and will play behind Edinson Cavani.

City also announced the news that Yaya Toure had retired from International football and also he has agreed a new 5 year contract worth £190,000 a week that will see him finish his career as a Manchester City player.

United come into the game with only two injury doubts, as Nani and goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard are both struggling to be fit. Wayne Rooney comes into the game as United’s biggest threat having scored 10 goals in 15 games this season.

MCFC Subs – Friedel, Zabaleta, Varane, Barry, Bale, Nasri, de Jong

MUFC Subs – Johnstone, Evans, Smalling, Carrick, Welbeck, Fabio, Ferdinand

First Half

For the first time this season, City started off slowly and United took advantage. Vincent Kompany brought down Van Persie in the box and Van Persie picked himself up and tucked the penalty into the bottom corner to put City behind for the first time this season. City seemed to respond well to going behind for the first time and the pressure told when Nastasic got his head on a corner 2 minutes before half time and scores were level.

Half Time – Manchester City 1 (Nastasic 44) Manchester United 1 (Van Persie 12(p))

Second Half

The second half was one-sided, City have dominated most halves this season and this one was no different. United rarely threatened and struggled to stop City in full flow, City took the lead when from another Milner corner, Majita Nastasic rose above everybody else and headed home his second of the game. From that moment City didn’t look like losing and with 5 minutes to go, Luuk de Jong battled hard for the ball and slid it through to Edinson Cavani who made no mistake to give City their third goal and another three points.

MOTM – Matija Nastasic

Tuesday 26th November 2013 – Olympiakos v Manchester City (Champions League Group H)

MCFC Starting XI – Hart, Richards, Varane, Lescott, Zabaleta; Nasri, Barry, Toure, Bale; de Jong, Guidetti SUBS – Friedel, Nastasic, Kompany, De Rossi, Milner, Nem, Aguero

Olympiakos Starting XI – Megyeri, Papazoglou, Manolas, Papadopoulous, Ziegler; Velev, Abrashi, Radovanovic; Abdoun, Machado; Mitroglou SUBS – Carroll, Holebas, Siovas, Fejsa, Vafiados, Contreras, Rougalas

City chose to rest a few players for the trip to Greece but it didn’t really show, the team performed to a very high standard and came away with a comfortable victory. Two penalties were both deserved and both converted by Barry, while Toure popped up at the back post to turn in the third just before half time and the game was wrapped up late on by substitute Daniele De Rossi.

Final Score – Olympiakos 1 (Mitroglou 41) Manchester City 4 (Barry 5(p), 37 (P), Toure 45, De Rossi 88)

MOTM – Ivan Radovanovic

Attendance – 32,130
OOOOOH EDINSON CAVANI!!!

Manager’s November Review

November has been one of my best months in charge of Man City, 4 Premier League wins from 4, 13 goals scored and only 2 conceded, this is definitely the best spell in charge of the Club I’ve had. The month looked to be a tough one with three tough homes and tricky away tie but we won all of them comfortably, and to make it even better we beat United. The league table looks better every time I look at it and we must now keep up this form and make sure we win the league.

In the Champions League we secured qualification for the knock out stages by winning both our games away from home. We went to Belgrade and dominated from start to finish and won 3-1 and then 3 days after the derby we made a tough trip to Greece and even a weakened side came away with an easy 4-1 win.

My player of the month goes to Yaya Toure. His performances in the middle of the field have been nothing short of world class, he creates chances, makes tackles and scores goals. He scored four goals this month at important times and the month also saw him rewarded with a new contract that will mean he will be at City for the rest of his career.

For the fourth month in a row, I have been award the Premier League Manager of the Month. The team has played well all season and I intend on winning this award as many times as possible along the way to winning the Premier League.

Sunday 1st December 2013 – Fulham v Manchester City (Premier League)

MCFC Starting XI – Hart, Richards, Kompany, Nastasic, Shaw; Milner, Barry, Toure, Nem; Aguero; Cavani SUBS – Friedel, Zabaleta, Varane, Rodwell, Nasri, Bale, de Jong

Fulham Starting XI – Stockdale, Rangel, Hangeland, Dawson, Riise; Diarra, Williams; Dejagah, Dorrans, Kacaniklic; Berbatov SUBS – Schwarzer, Kusk, Diskerud, Rodallega, Hughes, Frei, Kasami

Probably City’s most average performance of the season, as they rarely threatened the Fulham goal and when they did Stockdale was there to stop them. A solid away point though and Kinkladze will be happy enough.

Final Score – Fulham 0 Manchester City 0

MOTM – Vincent Kompany

Attedance – 25,700

Wednesday 4th December 2013 – Manchester City v Barcelona (Champions League Group H)

MCFC Starting XI – Hart, Zabaleta, Varane, Lescott, Rekik; Nasri, De Rossi, Rodwell, Bale; de Jong; Cavani SUBS – Friedel, Richards, Nastasic, Toure, Nem, Silva, Guidetti

Barcelona Starting XI – Olazabal, Bartra, Pique, Song, Muniesa; Mascherano, Busquets, Fabgregas; Cuenca, Pedro; Messi SUBS – Valdes, Alves, Alba, Iniesta, Bojan, Montoya, Puyol

A very even game to end the group stages of the Champions League, both teams fielded reasonably weakened teams as both have already qualified and both managers will be happy with their teams performance.

Final Score – Manchester City 1 (Silva 57) Barcelona 1 (Cuenca 29)

MOTM – Gerard Pique

Attendance – 47,405

Saturday 7th December 2013 – Newcastle United v Manchester City (Premier League)

MCFC Starting XI – Hart, Richards, Kompany, Nastasic, Shaw; Milner, De Rossi, Toure, Bale; Aguero; Cavani SUBS – Friedel, Zabaleta, Lescott, Barry, Nasri, Silva, de Jong

Newcastle Starting XI – Krul, Toure, S Taylor, Coloccini, Santon; Lennon, Anita, Tiote, Gutierrez; Bendtner, Cisse SUBS – Sifakis, Vuckik, Baloy, Ameobi, Simpson, Caldwell, R Taylor

A massive game at St James’ Park today as leaders Man City faced second place Newcastle, and the leaders showed just why they are top of the league. City took an early lead and never really looked back with Newcastle only having a couple of opportunities during the whole game, before substitute David Silva scored a second with 20 minutes to go. The win does come at a cost as David Silva will miss the next 4 weeks with a twisted ankle.

Final Score – Newcastle United 0 Manchester City 2 (Toure 2, Silva 71)

MOTM – Matija Nastasic

Attendance – 52,405
Not great against Fulham, but good way to bounce back against Newcastle :)
