Manchester City 1 Feyenoord 0        City Make Hard Work Of It
Tuesday 21st November 2017 : GYKO at the Etihad


Manchester City were threatening to end their winning sequence at 16 until Raheem Sterling turned a humdrum evening into a celebration with a goal two minutes from time. A 17th successive win in all competitions means City have won their group with a match to spare, though in fact that was already the case when Sterling played a give-and-go with Ilkay Gündogan and raced through to beat Brad Jones with an angled shot.

Napoli’s goals against Shakhtar Donetsk had confirmed City’s untouchability at the top of Group F by that stage, and though this was far from one of their most memorable performances it could be excused on the grounds key players such as David Silva, Fernandinho and Leroy Sané were rested. And that City kept plugging away right until the end to achieve a win that hardly mattered. Pep Guardiola will have been pleased to see that, and so will the home supporters and compilers of records. “Raheem is a striker who scores important goals,” the manager said. “But he’s young, he can still improve. We can all do better.”

There are still some big names that even group-toppers might face in the knockout stage, though Guardiola is unconcerned. “All we can do is win our games and hope to keep winning,” he said. “Fifteen points from 15 is not too bad and this is the first time City have topped their Champions League group [actually the second, though they did not do it with maximum points in 2015-16].”

Plenty of people maintain that David Silva remains the most indispensable City player, despite all the eye-catching talent brought in since his arrival in June 2010, and a fairly flat opening to this game suggested they might have a point. Silva was left on the bench, Yaya Touré and Gündogan came into midfield, and all of a sudden City were not carving great holes in the opposition defence. Gündogan and Touré lumbered about looking less than razor sharp, as might be expected, and though Kevin De Bruyne was on the pitch he looked a little tired, as if he too would have been glad of a rest.

The first half hour passed almost incident free, certainly in terms of goalmouth incident. Sergio Agüero found the by-line but put too much on his cross for Sterling to reach, then after a Nicolás Otamendi interception had caught Feyenoord short of cover at the back, Agüero steadied himself for a shot but sent it straight at Jones.

Surprisingly, or perhaps unsurprisingly, Guardiola had not opted to rest Ederson in favour of Claudio Bravo, and the Brazilian goalkeeper was nearly the unwanted centre of attention midway through the half when he came out to clear with his feet and mis-controlled to give Jean-Paul Boëtius a sight of the ball. Unflummoxed, Ederson simply used his feet again to dispossess Boëtius with a well-timed challenge,

Sam Larsson went close with a low shot shortly after that, though even operating on economy-setting City still produced the best chances of the first half. Gündogan shot wastefully high when trying to emulate De Bruyne’s super goal at Leicester last weekend, Agüero headed uncharacteristically wide when perfectly picked out by De Bruyne’s cross, and most glaringly of all Bernardo Silva could only manage what amounted to a back pass to Jones when Sterling gave him a clear close-range opportunity.

The second half was initially no more promising, Agüero contriving a volley that went backwards from Danilo’s cross from the left, and though De Bruyne pounced greedily on the rebound his effort was even more spectacularly off target. Then De Bruyne received an almost comical booking to earn a useful suspension by blatantly barging over Steven Berghuis just as Gündogan was moving in to make a legitimate tackle. Larsson put the free-kick over Ederson’s bar but that was the signal for Guardiola to replace De Bruyne with Gabriel Jesus.

Touré went close with a free kick as the game entered its final quarter, yet the invention City were missing was highlighted when Feyenoord created a great chance with skilful close passing. Tonny Vilhena and Larsson combined neatly to put Berghuis through on goal and he was only denied by a first-class reaction save from Ederson.

With 15 minutes remaining, just after some more insouciant footwork from Ederson and a shot on the turn from Agüero that flew wide, Guardiola brought on the 17-year-old prodigy Phil Foden for his first taste of senior football. He did not make a startling difference, though neither did he look out of place.

He was probably wondering, like everyone else, whether this was the same City side he has been watching for the last few months, before Sterling came up with the happy ending. “What we’ve shown this season,” City’s match-winner said, “no matter if it’s Champions League, Premier League, cup games, we’ve got the mentality that we want to win and even if it’s sometimes ugly, we just try to make sure we get the win.”

Leicester City 0 Manchester City 2      Tale of One City
Saturday 18th November 2017 : John Murphy at the King Power Stadium

There's simply no stopping Manchester City at the moment as they overcame a mini defensive crisis to continue their record-breaking start in the Premier League.

Another emphatic victory, their eleventh in twelve games, equalled the remarkable start to the 2011-12 title triumph under Roberto Mancini as they made brought Leicester City’s recent revival under Claude Puel to a shuddering halt at the King Power Stadium.

Though Vincent Kompany could easily have been sent off two minutes into his return to action and City lost England defender John Stones to a hamstring injury, it couldn’t disrupt their title charge as Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne confirmed their dominance.
Jesus finished off a goal of stunning simplicity on the stroke of half time before De Bruyne fired home a spectacular 20-yard strike to end the game as a contest.

The only thing in doubt was the margin of victory at that stage as Guardiola’s side looked to their impressive goal difference, but Leicester managed to keep it to two despite living a charmed life as the Premier League leaders showed off their striking riches.

They may be short of defensive cover with some big games to come in the next few weeks, but in this mood, they will not have too many concerns.

Kompany’s return to the starting line-up in place of the suspended Nicolas Otamendi had been one of the major talking points before the game, but his first contribution only two minutes into the action was an even bigger one.

Referee Graham Scott was left with a massive call to make when the Belgian defender brought Jamie Vardy down in full flight, but his decision to issue a yellow card was arguably the right one with John Stones alongside the England striker.

While Kompany’s return could have been short-lived, Stones’ afternoon was cut short when he limped off with a hamstring injury after pulling up clutching the back of his right leg as he chased back when Leicester threatened.

With Eliaquim Mangala replacing Stones, that meant the Premier League leaders’ central defensive pairing had only eight appearances between them.

But they regained their composure to take the lead just before the break as the highly influential Silva played a big part in opening up the Leicester defence.

The Spaniard eventually latched onto a through pass from Raheem Sterling and delivered the square pass to leave Jesus with the simplest of tasks.

On the balance of play, it was no more than Guardiola’s side deserved after they had gone close on a number of occasions with Silva forcing a fine save out of Kasper Schmeichel when he met Leroy Sane’s cross with a curling shot from the edge of the box.

The Premier League leaders gave themselves more breathing space shortly after the restart by making the most of a let-off at one end.

Within seconds of Harry Maguire hitting the outside of the post with a close-range shot, Schmeichel was picking the ball out of the net at the other end after being beaten by another spectacular long-range strike from De Bruyne.

They were clearly in no mood though to sit back on that two-goal lead as both Jesus and Sane went close to grabbing a third in quick succession.

Leicester were struggling to resist wave after wave of attacks and Silva was given far too much time when he drifted into the box only to drag his shot wide.

Yet the home side’s hopes of a dramatic fightback were raised by Vardy as he gave City some cause for concern on two occasions, firstly when he was flagged offside as he broke on Riyad Mahrez’s pass and then when he had a header cleared off the line by Kyle Walker

Leicester City (4-4-1-1): Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Fuchs; Albrighton, (Sub Iheanacho 68 mins), Iborra (Sub Okazaki 83 mins), Ndidi, Gray; Mahrez (Sub Slimani 83 mins); Vardy.

Manchester City 3 Arsenal 1         A Kick Up The Arse
Sunday 5th November 2017 : GYKO at the Etihad

The essence of football is that the odds are stacked in favour of defence. Goals are rare, and therefore so much more valuable, because it is far easier to prevent a chance than to create one. While you often need everything to go perfectly to score a goal, the principles of the game are built on the fact that you do not necessarily need to play perfectly to stop one. Until Manchester City came along, that is.

You get the ball. Instantly, you see Kevin de Bruyne and Leroy Sane hunting you down. A few yards away, Sergio Aguero is blocking the easy pass to your right. Raheem Sterling is blocking the pass up the touchline. Can you maybe bend the ball around David Silva? You have fractions of a second to answer. Too late. Sane has wrapped one of his telescopic legs around yours, De Bruyne has gathered up the loose ball, and once more you are defending for your lives.

Multiply this scenario by 10, by 100, by hundreds, and you get some idea of what playing City these days entails: a never-ending series of multiple-choice problems, each with only one perfect solution. Can you pull off the first-time back heel around the corner? Can you find exactly the right sliding tackle that will win the ball off a hurtling Gabriel Jesus without giving away a penalty? Where will Sane be in exactly 2.5 seconds? Can you be absolutely perfect? Because more often than not, you know that City will be.

Arsenal did not play appallingly here. This was certainly not their worst performance of the season by any stretch. You could point the finger at individuals: at Alexis Sanchez, Francis Coquelin, Granit Xhaka, the usual suspects. You could point the finger at Arsene Wenger, whose decision to omit Alexandre Lacazette looked intriguing at kick-off and downright negligent by the time he had hauled Arsenal back into the game with a powerful low finish.

But really, Arsenal were no worse than any other team to visit the Etihad and have their dinner money taken this season. They were simply incapable of perfection. Asked time and again to pick the perfect pass, make the perfect run, maintain the perfect defensive shape, they simply did what anybody else would have done under City’s relentless interrogation. They squealed.

City’s first goal, a masterclass in the accumulation of fine margins, was a case in point. Alex Iwobi gets bundled over in the build-up. Nacho Monreal is brushed off just a little too easily. Laurent Koscielny tracks Kevin de Bruyne, but not quite enough to stop the shot going in between his legs. Petr Cech gets a fingertip to the shot, but not quite enough to divert it around the post. De Bruyne’s goal was thus the product not simply of a fine finish, but City doing a dozen separate tasks slightly better than Arsenal.

And that, really, was the story of Arsenal’s afternoon. Shortly after half-time, Sead Kolasinac almost plays Aguero offside, but not quite. Monreal almost gets the right side of Sterling, but not quite. A penalty results, and with 40 minutes of the game remaining, Arsenal are as good as done.

Which makes it sound simple, but of course it's not. Even with elementary tasks, you don’t simply get better at them overnight. Sterling’s little burst of speed to break the offside trap was the result of months and years of training sprints, dead-lifts in the gym, unhealthy meals not eaten, nights out not enjoyed.

The covering runs Nicolas Otamendi made to snuff out numerous Arsenal attacks do not simply happen, but are drilled by a honed footballing instinct, a learned caution, pure remorseless experience. And indeed City’s superior physical condition was evident throughout: winning the 50-50 balls, intensifying the press, not going to ground unless they absolutely have to.

Mentally, of course, this sort of stuff begins to take its toll after a while. And it was interesting to note that while Guardiola was his usual apoplectic self, Wenger and his troops seemed more subdued than usual: plenty of open palms, plenty of hands on hips. Even Wenger’s protests to the fourth official lacked their usual bite.

That’s not a slight on Arsenal, by the way. Not this time, at least. City had simply broken them: broken their shape, broken their plan, broken their spirit. And they may already have broken the rest of the Premier League.

Napoli 2 Manchester City 4            City Lick The Neapolitans
Wednesday 1st November 2017 :  Giuseppe Elba for GYKO at The San Paulo Stadium

So, the first time that it was really put to Manchester City this season they instead replied with a stunning spectacle. That was the true significance to this brilliant 4-2 victory in Napoli, even though it still extended their winning run to 14 games in all competitions and also saw them mathematically qualify for the Champions League last 16.

That was in truth always academic and the evidence of this game suggests they should have absolutely nothing to fear once they get there as the Stadio San Paolo saw another step in their impressive evolution under Pep Guardiola. They found another way to win, as Napoli went at them and gave them problems like no other side has done this season.

It also meant this wasn’t just any other game, but maybe among the best the Champions League will see this season. It was that good, that intense, that entertaining, and the sublime Sergio Aguero’s blistering strike that fitting a winner before Raheem Sterling really rounded it off.

If the consistent hope for so many rivals this season is that City will begin to buckle once they face a proper setback and their rhythm is disrupted, the response to that precise problem here should be ominous.

The fact Napoli had clearly so intensely dwelt on how to do exactly that should only deepen that feeling.

Maurizio Sarri had said the only way his side could possibly get a result out of this game was to prevent City starting in the way they usually do and getting the early goal they usually do, and Napoli resoundingly succeeded in that by giving City the kind of problems early on they haven’t usually faced. The Serie A leaders just hounded and pressed Guardiola's team in the way we haven’t seen for some time. It also meant that City went behind for the first time in some time, as Lorenzo Insigne finished a sweeping one-two.

As brilliant as the Italian’s strike was, though, the real beauty of the move was in Dries Mertens’ divine first-time outside-of-the-foot return ball at the edge of the box. It took five City players out and, really, took the breath away.

This was the first time City had been a goal down in any game since 26 August away to Bournemouth, and thereby the first challenge they’ve faced in some time. It didn’t help that they weren’t being able to pass the ball in the same way, as Napoli had a much greater share of possession at over 50 per cent.

That was something else City weren’t accustomed to, but they responded impressively. Even if they were helped by the fact the lively Faouzi Ghoulam had to come off injured, so many of their players began to properly switch on. Ilkay Gundogan began to run the midfield, and the attackers around him ran with more purpose. Warning was served for Napoli on 32 minutes when a surging break ended with Sergio Aguero having a shot deflected just wide, but the Italians couldn’t heed it.

That is perhaps the extra challenge of facing this City, and the difficulty of striking a balance against them. To start against them in the way that Sarri said he so needed, you need to put in the kind of running that is so unsustainable. Napoli were already drastically dropping back when, on 35 minutes, Nicolas Otamendi rose highest to head in Gundogan’s cross and make it 1-1.

It was all City now, as Otamendi missed another chance, John Stones hit the crossbar, and Raheem Sterling might have had a penalty after Elseid Hysaj had taken him down.

The young English winger’s running and weaving was giving Napoli all manner of problems, and almost saw him give City the lead after working his way into the box, only for Raul Albiol to excellently get across and block. That it required this showed how far City were pushing, how close a goal was. Within moments, they just got it over the line, literally. A Sane cross was headed off the bar by Stones, but crucially bounced just inside the goal.

It was as if Sarri had prepared so much for all the sophistication of City’s attacking that he had forgotten to look at something much more basic: how to defend set-pieces.

Napoli had more to offer themselves, though, and a thunderous shot against the bar from Insigne from distance was to signal to push up much more. On the hour, they had the equaliser, as Sane fouled Albiol in the box and Jorginho stroked the penalty into the corner.

With the score at 2-2 and with half an hour, the game was itself at a gloriously open stage, both teams willing to throw everything at each other. The 70th minute displayed that perfectly. In one moment, Jose Callejon was missing a supreme chance after a better run and pass from Mertens. In the next, Aguero was put through on goal to fire the ball past Pepe Reina.

In an end-to-end game, that was the way to appropriately finish it, but they weren't done yet as Sterling finished another breakaway to get a deserved personal goal. City, meanwhile, may just be getting started.

Manchester City The Album

What a fantastic compilation of songs and styles, normally football albums are cringe worthy but this is superb, and has a variety of styles to suit all age of fans. I particularly like The Invisible Man, The Best Team in the Land, and Jon Christos' City Till I die. A must for all City fans and well done - by far the best of any club album released to date.£3.00 only incl p&p

Manchester City v Gornik Zabrze
European Cup Winners Cup Final  1970

City's finest hour - or hour and a half, whichever way you look at it. Played in Vienna, Austria in the pouring rain this match as far as I know was the only European Final involving a British club not to be shown live on TV, at least in England. I badly want a copy of the programme so if anyone has one that they wish to unload on me please get in touch.
This is a very rare copy of the Video filmed in black and white with a German commentary.

1969 FA CUP Final


 Top Quality DVD of City's  FA Cup Final Win in 1969

All the action + the goals from the 1956 final

The DVD charts the success of the season so far, following the arrival of new owner Dr Thaksin Shinawatra and Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson back in July. At that point, they were coming to a club that only avoided relegation by four points the previous season and had failed to score a league goal at home since New Years Day. A few months later, City were a club transformed, thanks in the main to the spectacular impact of Eriksson and his management style. New signings such as Brazilian star Elano and Bulgarian flyer Martin Petrov have complemented Academy Graduates like Micah Richards and Michael Johnson. The Blues have made their best start to a league campaign for years and put together an incredible number of successive home wins that took them to third in the Barclays Premier League.
