Why Man City?

Ok guys, this is it. I know I've started a lot of stories recently, and I know I complain when others do it, so here is one last shot at maintaining a long-term story before I take a loooong break from it. If I can't manage to do it, I'll stop and carry on with my journalism instead.

So, why City? Well, my longest running save so far was with a team I supported, Sporting Lisbon. So this time, I'm going with another team I support, Manchester City. Hopefully, I will be able to maintain this much longer than other stories I've attempted and failed at.

Who Am I?

I have decided to go for former City legend Paul Dickov. It was about 14 years ago that he scored a goal at Wembley for City in injury time that meant that the Second Division play-off final went to penalties, which Manchester City eventually won. If we hadn't won that match, and Dickov hadn't scored that goal, who knows where we'd be now. We might even still be there.

Good luck Blue! And first comment too!
Good luck Blue, I'll definitely be following!
Hopefully we will see many Dickov-Esque comebacks :D Hard to think Gillingham almost got into the Championship once :P
I hope you get relegated ;)
How about surpassing Man Utd's trophy haul while you're at it? Healthy challenge :)
Louis O: Thanks Louis :)

neal09: Thanks Neal :)

Rablador: I think they did, a couple of seasons later!

Okikos: Erm... thanks. I think :P
Good luck mate..... Hopefully you don't do to good with the small team in Manchester ;)
BeanyUnited: Actually, that's Stockport :P thanks mate :)
That kit in the video is featured in a book of the worlds worst football kits, claiming they should have put a health warning before showing it on TV :))
Hahaha agree with Louis O. ! :) good luck Blue!

Mancini Sacked by City Bosses

The footballing world is in shock after Manchester City announced that first-team manager Roberto Mancini has been removed from his post after a trophyless campaign in which his team finished 11 points behind rivals Manchester United in the title race, failed to leave the group stages of the Champions League, and lost in the FA Cup final at Wembley after a very disappointing performance against Wigan. This mix of misfortunes left many fans calling for his sacking, and they have got their wish.

However poorly Mancini did in the manager's hotseat this season, he will be forever remembered at the Etihad for what he accomplished with the Blues. He ended Manchester City's 35-year-long wait for a trophy, with a 1-0 victory in the FA Cup final against Stoke at Wembley in 2011. He also won Manchester City their first league title with a dramatic home win over QPR on the final game of the season, but despite all those successes, it failed to save him from the sack this year, and he will now be looking for a new job.

A short statement was released on the Manchester City website late last night, worded as follows: "it is with great sadness that we announce that first-team manager Roberto Mancini has been relieved of his role with the club with immediate effect. The board feel that the trophyless season was unsatisfactory progress of Manchester City's stature, and have decided it is time for the club to move forward with a new manager, who the hierarchy will make an immediate start to the search for. We wish Mr. Mancini the best of luck in his future endeavors and his future career paths.

Manchester City fans across the globe took to online message boards and to Twitter to voice their distaste at Mancini's sacking, especially after the lack of support he received from the board of directors. It certainly seems unfair to relieve someone of their position after just one unsuccessful year, and many also seem to think he should have been given another chance to redeem himself, and get City back on the road to success.

The Citizens are expected to start their search for a new manager immediately, with Juup Heynckes one of the first favourites to emerge. However, former Manchester United favourite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been named as a possible contender. According to the bookies though, former Real Madrid and Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini is being named the outright favourite to be named the next City boss.
Louis O: I know, but still a magical moment :P

CFClynch1000: Shush :P and thanks :)

BeanyUnited: Yes, because City really play in the Blue Square North -________-
So you'll be starting this at the end of this season then. Nice update, let's see Pellegrini! :P
:O I knew something drastic would happen but this! Never! xD
