Saturday 26th April 2014 – Arsenal v Manchester City (Premier League)

MCFC Starting XI – Hart, van der Wiel, Kompany, Charles, Shaw; Nasri, Barry, Moutinho, Bale; Silva; Guidetti SUBS – Friedel, Zabaleta, Varane, De Rossi, Nem, Aguero, Cavani

Arsenal Starting XI – Szczesny, Sagna, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Armero; Arteto, Frimpong; Wilshire, Carzola, Griezmann; Llorente SUBS – Fabianski, Walcott, Giroud, Holtby, Mertesacker, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey

City had only lost 2 games in 33 games but since winning the league, City have now lost 2 out of 2. After the crushing derby defeat, City faced their Champions League opponents in the league and didn’t really show up. Kinkladze handed a debut to 16 year old centre back Andy Charles, who is labeled the next Tony Adams, and he impressed at the back but City struggled and although they got back into it, Aguero gave away a penalty with 5 minutes to go and City lost again.

Final Score – Arsenal 2 (Cazorla 45, Arteta 85(p)) Manchester City 1 (Cavani 72)

MOTM – Laurent Koscielny

Attendance – 60,361

Wednesday 30th April 2014 – Manchester City v Arsenal (Champions League Semi Final 2nd Leg)

MCFC Starting XI – Hart Zabaleta, Varane, Nastasic, Clichy; Milner, De Rossi, Toure, Nem; Silva; Cavani SUBS – Friedel, Richards, Wabara, Charles, Barry, Bale, Aguero

Arsenal Starting XI – Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Armero; Coquelin, Holtby, Arteta; Carzorla, Griezmann; Llorente SUBS – Fabianki, Gervinho, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Koscielny, Walcott, Giroud

An early goal set the tone for this game, and it was Manchester City who scored it. Wellington Nem scored in the first minute of the game and that was it from then on, two more goals in the first half from Nastasic were enough to send City into their first ever Champions League Final, where they will face a very familiar team, Manchester United. Nastasic was taken off at half time as a yellow card would have ruled him out of the Final, and Aguero played no part in the game as he was in the same situation.

Final Score – Manchester City 3 (Nem 1, Nastasic 31, 45+3) Arsenal 0
Manchester City win 4-0 on aggregate

MOTM – Matija Nastasic

Attendance – 47,405

Manager’s April Review

A strange month, but ultimately the month I’ve been waiting for. We are Champions of England for the first time since I’ve been at the Club, a stunning season has resulted in us doing what I wanted and I hope our run can continue into next season. In the 5 games this month we won 3 and the final win coming at Anfield guaranteed us the title, but we also lost 2, one of them being a horrible performance at Old Trafford which saw us lose 5-1.

In the Champions League we finally did it, we beat Bayern on away goals in the Quarters and then facing a tough Arsenal side, we dominated the Semi Final and are through to our first final and we will face United, the team will definitely be looking for revenge for the 5-1 defeat.

My player of the month is Yaya Toure. Mainly for his performances in Europe that have seen us get to the final, but he also contributes so much to the team in the league where no-one can deal with his power and strength.

Good luck in the final! Beat the scum or else :P

Saturday 3rd May 2014 – Manchester City v West Bromwich Albion (Premier League)

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

WBA Starting XI – Foster, Jones, Dawson, Olsson, Ridgewell; Mulumbu, Yacob; Brunt, Morrison, Kadrii; Wood SUBS – Amos, Jara, Tamas, Stepanenko, Long, McAuley, Bridge

After back to back defeats in the League, City knew they had to respond and they did do today with a convincing and comfortable victory against West Brom. Some cool finishing was shown by all three goal scorers and the midfield was run by the experience of Barry, and with many players playing for a place in the starting eleven for the Champions League Final, Kinkladze will have some big decisions to make if they carry on playing like this.

Final Score – Manchester City 3 (Bale 31, Nasri 39, Aguero 53) West Bromwich Albion 0

MOTM – Gareth Bale

Attendance – 45,688

Man City Dominate English Football at All Levels

Manchester City can today say that all three levels of their team are Champions of England. The senior side had already won the English Premier League, but today the Reserve squad won the English Reserves Group 1 Trophy and the City Under-18’s won the English Under-18’s Group 1.

The reserve side only lost 6 games all season and won both the First and Second Phase of the League and then beat Stoke in the Semi Final to set up a final against Arsenal. The Final itself finished 4-2 to City, with goals from Lugano, Adryan (2), and John Guidetti.

The Under-18’s side played just as well all season, although they lost more games and finished 2nd in the First Phase and 3rd in their Second Phase Group, but then in the Semi Final they beat Arsenal 3-0 AET with their stamina proving too much for the young Gunners. The Final was an even game between Manchester Rivals, City and United, and after 120 minutes of football their still hadn’t been a goal and it was down to City’s 17 year old central defender Patrick Southam to score the decisive penalty and give City a 7-6 win.

Sunday 11th May 2014 – Queens Park Rangers v Manchester City (Premier League)

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

QPR Starting XI – Julio Cesar, Bosingwa, Ifa, Mbia, Troare; Taarabt, Livermore, Faurlin, Granero; Zamora, Cisse SUBS – Green, Kim, Hoilett, Radzionau, Onouha, Elyounoussi, Barton

City seem to coming back into form after a little dip and it could be perfect timing for the Champions League Final that is 2 weeks away. Nem gave City an early lead and that was doubled in the second half by the captain before Nem made it three. Luuk de Jong has been ruled out for two months and will miss both the Champions League Final and a chance of playing in the World Cup.

Final Score – Queens Park Rangers 0 Manchester City 3 (Nem 8, 81 Kompany 62)

MOTM – Wellington Nem

Attendance – 18,439

Sunday 18th May 2014 – Manchester City v Wolverhampton Wanderers (Premier League)

MCFC Starting XI – Friedel, van der Wiel, Kompany, Lescott, Shaw; Milner, Barry, Toure, Bale; Nasri; Cavani SUBS – Hart, Zabaleta, Nastasic, De Rossi, Nem, Silva, Aguero

Wolves Starting XI – Hennessey, Foley, Berra, Stearman, Ward; Karacan, Reo-Coker; Doyle, Hammill, Sako; Chamakh SUBS - –keme, Forde, Angel, Ebanks-Blake, Batth, O’Hara, Siguroasrson

City end their League winning campaign in style with plenty of goals for the fans to savour on the last day of the season. A week before the Champions League Final and Cavani showed his class by scoring two and Nasri definitely staked him claim for a starting spot with two goals as well. City also showed loyalty and class by giving Brad Friedel the starting spot for his final league game before retiring, there are no signs yet that he will be offered a coaching role at City.

Final Score – Manchester City 5 (Nasri 7, 69 Cavani 16, 19 Bale 61) Wolverhampton Wanderers 2 (Sako 58 Ebanks-Blake 88)

MOTM – Samir Nasri

Attendance – 47,405

Champions League Final Build-up

Here we are, the biggest Manchester Derby in history as Georgi Kinkladze’s Manchester City face Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United at the Estadio Da Luz in Lisbon. This will be City’s first ever appearance in a European Cup Final, while Manchester United have won the competition three times, so United will come into the game as favourites, even though City have just finished 17 points ahead of United at the top of the English Premier League.

http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj595/MCFCDAP/Lisbon_zpsdd4a2408.jpg

Manchester City come into the game with only one injury hampering the squad. Kinkladze’s major decisions come with his starting line-up, the choice between Richards and Zabaleta at right back is a tough one, as is the decision between Nasri and Milner on the right side of midfield, but one big decision has been made for him as Gareth Bale was ruled out for 2 weeks with a twisted knee done in training this week.

Manchester United are suffering a little more with Robin van Persie, Fabio and Chris Smalling all missing through injury, while Nani is suspended for the final. Ferguson will be pinning a lot of his hopes on the English forward Wayne Rooney, who has created more goals than anybody in this year’s competition.
Come on you Citizens!
COME ON CITY!

Saturday 24th May 2014 – Manchester City v Manchester United (Champions League Final)

The talking stops here, the managers have both had their say and both believe their team will leave Lisbon with the Champions League trophy, but ultimately it is down to the players to go on the pitch and play for themselves, their manager and of course the thousands of fans that have made the trip and the millions who will watch from home.

http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj595/MCFCDAP/CLTeams_zps0facab47.png

MCFC Subs – Friedel, Richards, Varane, Barry, Milner, Silva, Guidetti

MUFC Subs – Lindegaard, Valencia, Fletcher, Welbeck, Evans, Belhanda, Coentrao

First Half

A very even first half with both sides having a fair share of the ball and an even amount of shots, but its United who have the lead going into the dressing room. Andriy Yarmolenko’s strike from the edge of the box after 5 minutes has given United a lead that they can hold onto for the second half. City have suffered an injury in the first half and Wellington Nem will be replaced by David Silva for the second half.

Second Half

The second half was as tense as they come, both teams making mistakes which lead to a few chances for either side. Joe Hart made a stunning reflex save from Rooney after 60 minutes and Daniele De Rossi having an effort go close. The break-through just didn’t seem to be coming for City, Aguero had to go off injured and City had the last few minutes that teams want when losing 1-0, United pinned back in their own half, 3 corners, long throw-ins but the goal didn’t come and when the referee blew the whistle it was United fans who were celebrating, while City fans left with visions of what could have been.
