Manager’s November Review

A busy month in the league so us play 5 games, winning 3 and losing 2, one of which was a disgraceful performance against Reading that led to speculation about my job, the other a nine goal thriller with Newcastle that we lost 5-4.

In the Champions League we won both of our games and qualified for the knockout stages easily with one game to go. We have a tricky tie away at Porto to come, but a win would secure top spot in the group so we will be going all out for the three points.

My player of the month has to go to Sergio Aguero. 7 goals in the 7 games make him the obvious choice and he could have had 8 but missed a penalty in the away game at Stoke. Special mention does have to go to Wellington Nem who won the Premier League Young Player of the Month award for November, after a very impressive string of performances and scoring 3 goals.

Saturday 1st December – Manchester City v West Bromwich Albion (Premier League)

MCFC Starting XI – Friedel, Lescott, Richards, Lugano, Maicon, Kolarov; Toure, Milner; Nem, Nasri; Aguero SUBS – Hart, Zabaleta, Nastasic, Barry, Rodwell, Tevez, Dzeko

WBA Starting XI – Foster, Reid, Tamas, Dawson, Popov; Mulumbu, Stepanenko; Morrison, Dorrans, Brunt; Lukaku SUBS – Myhill, Jara, Jones, Gera, Odemwingie, McAuley, Thorne

A Maicon strike just before half time gives us another win, and keeps us rising up the table towards where we want to be. West Brom nearly got an equaliser just after half time but a save on the line from Brad Friedel made sure City got the three points.

Final Score – Manchester City 1 (Maicon 45) West Bromwich Albion 0

MOTM – Maicon

Attendance – 43,462

Tuesday 4th December – FC Porto v Manchester City (Champions League Group C)

News from elsewhere is that in the FA Cup Third Round, City will travel to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham.

MCFC Starting XI – Friedel, Lugano, Nastasic, Lescott, Zabaleta, Clichy; Barry, Milner; Sinclair, Tevez; Dzeko SUBS – Hart, Richards, Kolarov, Rodwell, Toure, Nasri, Aguero

FCP Starting XI – Helton, Danilo, Maicon, Otamendi, Alex Sandro; Fernando, Grobkruetz, Lucho Gonzalez, Miguel Lopes, Rodriguez; Kleber SUBS – Fabiano, Iturbe, Kelvin, Martinez, Rolando, Atsu, Defour

A boring 0-0 draw finishes off Group C, which finishes with FC Porto top and Man City second. Neither team showed too much attacking intent but both would be happy with not losing the final group game.

Final Score – FC Porto 0 Manchester City 0

MOTM – Maicon

Attendance – 48,854

Sunday 9th December – Liverpool v Manchester City (Premier League)

MCFC Starting XI – Friedel, Richards, Lugano, Lescott, Zabaleta, Clichy; Barry, Milner; Nem, Silva; Aguero SUBS – Hart, Kompany, Maicon, Toure, Rodwell, Nasri, Dzeko

Liverpool Starting XI – Reina, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Wilson; Lucas, Gerrard, Sahin; Assaidi, Downing; Suarez SUBS – Doni, Suso, Carragher, Borini, Coates, Henderson, Allen

The famous KOP was silenced by the Champions Manchester City today, as the City team ripped the Liverpool team to pieces. Two goals in 3 minutes were enough to give City three points that was never really in doubt. Only negative point of the game is we have lost Joleon Lescott for 9 to 12 days.

Final Score – Liverpool 0 Manchester City 2 (Silva 62, Zabaleta 64)

MOTM – Micah Richards

Attendance – 43,128

Saturday 15th December – Arsenal v Manchester City (Premier League)

MCFC Starting XI – Friedel, Richards, Lugano, Kompany, Zabaleta, Clichy; Barry, Milner; Nem, Silva; Aguero SUBS – Hart, Nastasic, Maicon, Toure, Rodwell, Nasri, Dzeko

Arsenal Starting XI – Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Armero; Ramsey, Diaby; Gervinho, Chamakh, Arshavin; Podolski SUBS – Fabianski, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott, Aogo, Koscielny, Watt, Ansah

What a team performance! We took the lead after 4 minutes, to then see straight from the kick off David Silva go flying into a tackle and be sent off, so 85 minutes away at Arsenal with 10 men. Arsenal scored just before half time and I would have taken a point right then. What I didn’t expect was Aguero to smash the ball home from 25 yards and us to hold on to win 2-1

Final Score – Arsenal 1 (Diaby 40) Manchester City 2 (Nem 4, Aguero 52)

MOTM – Wellington Nem

Attendance – 60,361

Wednesday 19th December – Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City (Premier League)

MCFC Starting XI – Friedel, Richards, Kompany, Lugano, Maicon, Clichy; Barry, Milner; Toure, Nem; Aguero SUBS – Hart, Nastasic, Zabaleta, Rodwell, Nasri, Sinclair, Dzeko

Spurs Starting XI – Lloris, Lichsteiner, Assou-Ekotto, Kaboul, Vertonghen; Lennon, Huddlestone, Nainggolan, Bale; Defoe, Adebayor SUBS – Gomes, Sosa, Toivonen, Parker, Dawson, Dempsey, Dembele

An even game at White Hart Lane that Man City surely thought they’d won until an error from Micah Richards allowed Defoe to put a ball across for ex-City man Adebayor to place past Friedel to share the points. City lost a key man in the midfield with Gareth Barry ruled out until the new year with a twisted knee.

Final Score – Tottenham Hotspur 2 (Bale 31, Adebayor 90+3) Manchester City 2 (Aguero 35, Toure 68)

MOTM – Vincent Kompany

Attendance – 36,284

Friday 21st December – Champions League 1st Round Draw

Manchester City go into the hat for the first knockout round of the Champions League for the first time in their history. After finishing 2nd in Group C, City knew they would probably face one of Europe’s “big boys” and the draw didn’t fail to meet that expectation, with the Premier League Champions facing the La Liga Champions Real Madrid in a two-legged affair, with the first leg being played at the Etihad Stadium.

Ouch, hard luck getting Madrid, but hopefully you can pull it off! When you going to give Hart another run in the side?
Hope so mate, big game though but who knows what will happen!

When Friedel's form dips or he makes a mistake! Hart made 2 errors in the Newcastle game and hasn't had a look in since

Saturday 22nd December – Manchester City v Queens Park Rangers (Premier League)

MCFC Starting XI – Friedel, Nastasic, Richards, Lugano, Zabaleta, Kolarov; Rodwell, Toure; Sinclair, Nasri; Dzeko SUBS – Hart, Kompany, Maicon, Garcia, Nem, Milner, Aguero

QPR Starting XI – Julio Cesar, Bosingwa, Nelsen, Mbia, Fabio; Onouha, Faurlin, Derry, Granero; Zamora, Cisse SUBS – Green, Diakite, Troare, Taarabt, Hoilett, Mackie, Magri

A comfortable home win for City keeps an impressive run of form going. Two goals from Scott Sinclair on his first league start for the Club in over 2 months and a good all round performance may lead to more playing time for the former Swansea man, especially when a twisted ankle will rule Samir Nasri out until February, which is a major blow at a busy time of year.

Final Score – Manchester City 2 (Sinclair 27,50) Queens Park Rangers 0

MOTM – Scott Sinclair

Attendance - 46,447

Wednesday 26th December – Manchester City v Sunderland (Premier League)

MCFC Starting XI – Friedel, Lescott, Lugano, Richards, Maicon, Kolarov; Garcia, Rodwell; Nem, Sinclair; Tevez SUBS – Hart, Kompany, Zabaleta, Toure, Milner, Dzeko, Aguero

Sunderland Starting XI – Mignolet, Brown, Cuellar, O’Shea, Kilgallon; Cattermole, Frimpong; Johnson, Darragi, Sessegnon; Fletcher SUBS – Westwood, Bridcutt, Rose, Vaughan, Campbell, Larsson, Bramble

Another top class performance from the Boys In Blue mean that City go into the Manchester derby with their confidence sky high. A first goal for City from Lugano will once again raise the questions about a permanent deal at the Club, after a string of good performance in the back three.

Final Score – Manchester City 4 (Nem 17, Maicon 48, Lugano 76, Zabaleta 81) Sunderland 1 (Fletcher (p) 44)

MOTM – Wellington Nem

Attendance – 47,405

Saturday 29th December – Manchester City v Manchester United (Premier League)

http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj595/MCFCDAP/CityUnited_zps2c8c6318.png

Its 2nd versus 1st in the second Manchester derby of the season as the two teams meet at the Etihad Stadium during the Christmas period. After a very even 1-1 draw on the opening day of the season, United have pulled away from City at the top, opening up a 9 point gap at the half way point, and a win today would surely put them out of sight even this early in the season.

Manchester City recall David Silva to the team following a three game ban, and he starts behind Sergio Aguero with Wellington Nem. City have been able to rest a few players for the previous two games with Kompany, Clichy, Milner and Toure all recalled to the starting line-up.

Manchester United come into the game looking for their 10th straight win but are without the injured Robin Van Persie, who is United’s leading goal scorer. Danny Welbeck starts as a lone striker with Valencia, Rooney and Kagawa playing behind him looking to create chances. David De Gea has been key to United recently having not conceded a goal for over 280 minutes.

First Half –

An uneventful first 25 minutes made those watching believe the game of the season would be a massive anti-climax but the game burst into life after that. A short pass back from Lugano led to Friedel charging out to clear the ball and that ball ended up at the feet of David Silva who beat him man and pulled the ball back into the United area where Wellington Nem was stood waiting to tab in the pull back to give City the lead. On 42 minutes a poor challenge on the left would result in the referee producing a second yellow for United man Fellaini and United were down to 10 men, but this wouldn’t stop the team top of the league from bringing the game level in the last minute before half time when Welbeck beat Friedel from the edge of the box.

Half Time – Manchester City 1 (Nem 27) Manchester United 1 (Welbeck 45+2)

Second Half –

Manchester City took control against the ten men of United and rarely did United threaten, the decisive goal did come from City when with 15 minutes to go Sergio Aguero was allowed to turn inside the box and smash the ball home for a vital 3 points in the title race. City probably could have had more late on but the second half goal from Aguero was enough.

Final Score – Manchester City 2 (Nem 27, Aguero 74) Manchester United 1 (Welbeck 45+2)

MOTM – David Silva

Attendance – 47,405
