Mr.JK's story, Manchester United : It's All Lies, inspired this story. I won't update it as frequently as my Everton one but i will update it, hopefully i can achieve half of what Mr.JK did, but this time, with City.

Abu Dhabi United Group cancel Man City ownership

In a shock move for the Manchester club, the Abu Dhabi United Group has relinquished their ownership of Manchester City.

The Citizens were enjoying a great run under Mancini, having won the Premier League once, their first league title in 44 years.

It is unknown to this day as to why the owner of the Abu Dhabi Group, Sheikh Mansur, has retracted their ownership, but now City face a daunting challenge, as all their funds have been cut off.

Mancini is also set to leave, with some players looking to depart also to build funds for the club.

City bankruptcy costs Premier League place

City a dominant force in Premier League? Not anymore!....Again!

After the vacant ownership and zero funding availaible, City has entered bankruptcy and administration.

More bad luck coming to their way, because now City has been relegated to Blue Square Premier!

Some clubs have received automatic promotion. Nottm Forest to Premier League, Sheff Utd to Championship, Bristol Rovers to League One, and Luton to League Two.

Will their stroke of bad luck continue?

Interesting start, will be interesting to see how else you develop this one.

Uwe Rosler new President, Roberto Mancini departs

The former Manchester City center forward has resigned from his managing job at Brentford and has become the new City president.

"The club are in shambles, i loved this club when i played for them. I wouldn't want to see them fall apart. I will do everything i can to aid this club in their time of need."
While Uwe Rosler has restored a little bit of hope to the Citizens, more bad luck strikes as Roberto Mancini resigns from his place as manager.

"I can't manage in the Blue Square Premier! I'm sorry and no disrespect towards City, but they can find a new man to manage this club."

A lot of players are also linked with moves, with Rosler looking to raise finances.

Thanks for the comment :D hopefully ive got some new ideas :P

Etihad Stadium demolished!

...Sort of...

The formerly 48000 capacity stadium has been a mere 4000.

With this move, it is widely expected that City will lose some fans and supporters alike, as they prepare life for the Blue Square Premier.

Also, all affiliations with other clubs Manchester City has, has been terminated by effect. It looks like Rosler is doing anything and everything to reduce costs for his beloved club.

Also obviously, Rosler will have to come up with a new name for the stadium, since Etihad is no longer eligible.

Every player and staff leave City, 2 new directors join

Every member of the City squad has left for other clubs, Rosler have done the deals personally to support the financial state of City.

Here are the list of departures:
Hart -> Tottenham 150K
Richards -> Newcastle 10K
Kompany -> Chelsea 250K
Zabaleta -> Tottenham 20K
Milner -> Villa 5K
Barry -> Villa 5K
Nasri -> At.Madrid 200K
Dzeko -> PSG 100K
Sinclair -> Everton 2K
Aguero -> R.Madrid 300K
Silva -> Valencia 20K
Clichy -> Juventus 25K
Tevez -> Juventus 240K

Any other player and staff not listed have left the club on a free transfer.

Also breaking news...

2 new directors have joined the City journey, San Marino native Mohammed Lester and Somalian Tiger McPherson. It is unknown where these two came from, as Rosler admits he "barely knows them".

"But they offered help out of nowhere, i'd accept help from anybody at this point of time."

Dispute over new stadium name, The Blue Half was chosen

New Manchester City directors have already begun to show signs of inability to work together, with disputes over the newly 4000 seated stadium for the Citizens.

After Somalian Tiger McPherson suggested "The Blue Half", San Marino native Mohammed Lester suggested a name that was similar to a stadium already existant, "Blue Hart Lane".

Reports say that Tiger called Mohammed's idea "terrible", he also responded by saying even more nonsensical names, such as "Anfield", "Old Trafford".

Although later suggesting decent names such as "Estadio Gloryhunter" and "Parc De Pellgerini", Mohammed's first suggestion was thought as a "joke" by Rosler that he cannot stand any of his ideas, and thus the new "The Blue Half" was born.
Wow, the fire sale of players reminds me strongly of leeds when they offloaded so many for so little.. not quite this drastic thank christ but still!

Loving this and you haven't even kicked a ball yet :)

edit: Just realised this was my 1000th post you lucky thing you!
Good luck :P
Just read through all that and well and truly pissed myself laughing...keep it up :)

PS: What's wrong with Blue Hart Lane eh?!?!?! ;)
Mate its a good start, but slow down on the stories, you only started another one the day before you started this
Honored to have your 1000th post here :P -ziechael

Alan Curbishley appointed new Manchester City manager

In a shock move, Alan Curbishley has been appointed the new City manager for their struggle at the Blue Square Premier.

But with a club with a smaller stadium, no staff and players and the 2 directors that cannot get along, Curbishley faces a daunting task ahead of him.

"He has the experience, let's hope his experience is enough to guide a Blue Square Premier club back to it where truly belongs, the Premier Leagues." claimed Uwe Rosler.

This is one of the not too many good news for City. At least now they have someone to lead them and hopefully, someone who'll lead them back to the top stages once again.
