Liverpool 4 Manchester City 3    Scouse Revenge
Sunday 14th January 2018 : Kenneth Cooper for GYKO at Anfield

“Still human”, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had said of Manchester City on Thursday, before he and his risk-taking Liverpool team went and proved it on Sunday – and then almost re-asserted it about themselves. The league leaders at least won’t enjoy the immortality of an unbeaten season, as their run stops at 30 games. It wasn’t just City’s sense of invincibility that will have gone, though, but also some of their aura as Liverpool got at them in a way no-one else has this season.

They mostly made Pep Guardiola’s side look like the team that shipped four goals across the park at Everton a year ago, rather than the one that looks like it could win four trophies this year. That’s how ruthless and relentless Liverpool were, reflected in every one of their emphatic goals for this 4-3 win. Rarely has Ederson looked so exposed and vulnerable, so brutally beaten. It was proof that proper proactivity is the way to get at them.

The gap really should have been bigger, except Jurgen Klopp’s side too readily displayed some of their own vulnerabilities, and City some resilience.

That it went so close was still somewhat fitting mind, given the risks inherent to the German’s approach and how he was willing to both take the game to City and take strong decisions. Simon Mignolet was dropped, maybe to finally be discarded, for Loris Karius to come in. Liverpool’s actions ensured that was barely worthy of words by the end, even though he may have made an error.

From the start, Klopp looked to win the game through typically all-in tactics, to go with an all-in personnel decision. Liverpool were offering the kind of play the German would idealise, especially against a possession side, by pinning City right back with rigorously targeted pressing. It wasn’t just the pace of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane that was disrupting the leaders playing out from the back, but also the threat of it. It said a lot when the normally-so-assured Ederson opted to hit the ball long for kick-outs, rather than risk spreading out to very withdrawn full-backs who looked susceptible to being pounced upon.

That was a regular occurrence throughout the evening.

As if to only emphasise how Klopp’s side were imposing themselves on City, the first goal came from something we have seen a lot through the German’s managerial career, but not enough from Liverpool in the last three years: a burst from midfield. It is something we haven’t seen enough of from Oxlade-Chamberlain in that time either, but that is perhaps just more proof of Klopp’s effect. He surged through the middle and powered a drive past Ederson.

City did eventually regain midfield control, allowing Leroy Sane to eventually restore parity. The winger took the ball with his chest beautifully, and took his goal brutally, even if there were questions to be asked of Karius.

Really, though, it was the only period in the game – and an all-too-brief one at that – that Liverpool players were even putting a foot wrong.

They were instead forcing City to do that. It was one of those afternoons when everything went perfectly for the players from one side, right down to the purity of the finishes for their goals, and one of those were almost everything went wrong for all of those from the other.

It was not just Ederson that suddenly look vulnerable. Fernandinho was getting beaten in challenges, Sane misplacing passes and De Bruyne – of all people – looking so lightweight. This was the thing. Liverpool made City look like City 2015/16 rather than 2017/18.

That was most visible with the prematurely withdrawn Sterling. Once again, he seemed to let a crowd still angry at his departure get into his head, as he played poor pass after poor pass and then responded with one overly robust and clearly frustrated bad foul.

Stones was meanwhile the opposite, as if incapable of such force. Like his team with the game, he badly misjudged a move after half-time, for the goal that sparked the spree.

Roberto Firmino easily brushed him off the ball in the way that Robbie Fowler did to Gary Neville in October 1995, and then finished with similar flair, chipping Ederson for the ball to go in off the post.

There was a similarly pure conviction about Liverpool’s next two goals, as they again ruthlessly punished City errors. Sane thundered the ball into the top corner after a despairing Otamendi slip, Salah scored from distance from a desperate Ederson clearance.

The fact both goals went in in the scarcely believable way they did best summed up the way Liverpool were playing – at least in attack.

It wouldn’t be Liverpool or a Klopp side if they didn’t betray some vulnerability and defensive porousness.

Bernardo Silva pulled one back on 84 minutes before Ilkay Gundogan brought City – and everyone’s emotions – right to the brink on the 90. There was one more scare as a Sergio Aguero header flashed wide before being flagged offside, as everyone in the ground suddenly sagged.

Manchester City 2 Bristol City 1   Semi Final Scare
Tuesday 9th January 2018 : GYKO at the Etihad


Manchester City may be blowing all and sundry away in top-flight but the Premier League leaders seem to find second-tier opponents somewhat more problematic. Bristol City were all but a few minutes away from becoming the second Championship side to come to the Etihad, derail the juggernaut and hold Pep Guardiola’s team in this season’s EFL Cup.

At half-time, Lee Johnson’s visitors were even hopeful of inflicting Manchester City’s first home defeat in over a year, as a first-half performance of organised defending and assertive counter-attacking ended with Bobby Reid winning and converting a penalty.

Yet Guardiola’s side is developing a knack for winning late and after a night of wasteful finishing, their most trusted frontman saved face late on. After striking back through Kevin De Bruyne early on in the first half, substitute Sergio Aguero sent Bristol’s travelling supporters home unhappy, rising to head in a stoppage-time winner.

Though disappointed, Bristol City, Johnson and those supporters will not leave without hope. Their display, combined with their elimination of Manchester United in the previous round, suggest they still stand an outside chance of reaching a Wembley final when the two teams reconvene at Ashton Gate in a fortnight’s time.

Johnson played in midfield for Bristol City when these two sides in met in this competition over a decade ago and was the sole survivor from that night, save his kitman and former team-mate Scott Murray. Back then, in the summer of 2007, Sven-Goran Eriksson’s City side required a late Rolando Bianchi goal to edge into the third round of this competition. How times have changed.

Whereas a run to semi-finals would have been considered a notable success in those days, the EFL Cup is now some way down the list of priorities, even at this late stage of the tournament. Yet even though Guardiola named what could be called a weakened line-up, the four changes included a four-time African Footballer of the Year, a £43m summer signing and the outstanding player of the Premier League season so far.

Bristol City were duly dominated for the opening quarter of an hour but, backed by a strong away following singing in a south-western accent, Johnson’s side surprisingly withstood the early pressure. More surprisingly still, the visitors threatened to find breakthrough.

Manchester City, nevertheless, should have scored the opener and broke Bristol City’s resolve. Bernardo was particularly wasteful in the opening 45 minutes, shanking several efforts wide when converting just one would have quietened the raucous away end. Kevin De Bruyne did better, forcing Fielding into the best save of the first half with a curling shot from the left flank.

Then, as half-time neared, sloppiness at the front was matched by sloppiness at the back and Bristol took a lead that nobody at the start of the night had seen coming. Josh Brownhill, a boyhood City fan and former United youth player, brilliantly robbed a careless Eliaquim Mangala of possession in midfield then played in Reid. John Stones’ attempt to win the ball back in his own area was mis-timed and left referee Anthony Taylor with no choice. Having won the penalty, Reid converted it, firing underneath Bravo’s right hand.

Johnson’s side were on the verge of an improbable half-time lead, though if not for a remarkable clearance by Aden Flint on the cusp of the interval, Manchester City would have levelled before the break. Raheem Sterling, operating as a lone striker with Sergio Aguero benched, looked destined to equalise when he chipped the onrushing Fielding but from underneath his own crossbar, Flint found enough space to head the effort over.

For the second time in the space of four days, after also trailing at half time in Saturday’s 4-1 FA Cup victory over Burnley, Manchester City’s unbeaten record on this ground was in jeopardy. A mis-hit clearance by Bravo in the opening stages of the second half and Ilkay Gundogan’s furious reaction said much about their performance so far.

The goalkeeper atoned a few short minutes later with a pass that initiated the equaliser. Bravo’s arced through ball while under pressure in his own six-yard found De Bruyne in midfield and the Belgian began haring up the pitch. Bristol City’s defence backed off him all the way, right up to their own area, at which point he slotted the ball to Sterling and waited for a return pass. When it came, he had ample time to fire high past Fielding and level.

From there on, the sense was that Bristol City’s moment had been and gone. Johnson’s visitors lost their counter-attacking edge from the first half and looked a little shakier at the back to boot, but without a natural, recognised striker to call on, Manchester City’s attack still seemed blunt. Aguero was eventually brought on, moments after Sterling had fired straight at Fielding from point-blank range.

The Argentine’s introduction eventually had the desired effect as stoppage time approached. Bernardo made up for his litany of missed chances in the first half by providing an inch-perfect cross that hung in the air just long enough for Aguero to rise above his marker and head home powerfully. It was a late reprieve that Manchester City’s finishing and Bristol’s otherwise resolute defending had not deserved.

Manchester City (4-3-3): Bravo; Danilo, Stones, Mangala, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Touré, Gundogan; Bernardo, Sterling, Sane.
Substitutes: Ederson, Walker, Aguero, Delph, Fernandinho, Diaz, Adarabioyo.

Manchester City 4 Burnley 1   Burnley Turfed Out
Saturday 6th January 2018 : GYKO at the Etihad


Any suggestion that Pep Guardiola is not interested in a Manchester City tilt at an unprecedented quadruple was belied by his reaction as Sergio Agüero equalised in the 56th minute.

The goal came from Ilkay Gündogan’s quickly taken free-kick, which displeased Sean Dyche and his assistant, Ian Woan, causing the Manchester City manager to go into hyperactive mode, making what appeared to be yapping actions with his hands at them. If there was any sense the Catalan might not have been too displeased at being knocked out and so lose one of the four competitions City can still win, the passion at levelling this FA Cup third-round tie was the clearest riposte.

During the dispute, Guardiola was told by Andy Haines, the fourth official, to calm down. Asked about the incident and what he told Dyche and Woan, the Catalan said: “I am sorry, I apologise. I didn’t want to lose control. I said: ‘Please leave the referees.’ I have a lot of respect for the way they play – of course, the way they play is completely different than the way we want to play, but they do it perfectly. That’s why football is top. All the managers around the world, especially here, have to do their job. Of course, they [managers] have to keep control. If they were offended, I am so sorry.”

Dyche denied there had been a falling-out with Guardiola. “Not really,” he said. “You both fight, you both want your teams to win. You’re allowed to show your passion, right?”

Guardiola’s declaration he would field a strong XI was borne out by his selection. While there were four changes – Claudio Bravo, Danilo, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gündogan – David Silva, Leroy Sané, Agüero, Fernandinho and Raheem Sterling were among those in the side. Dyche also brought in a quartet, in Matt Lowton, Kevin Long, Ashley Westwood and Sam Vokes.

City attacked from the opening whistle and won a corner that Sané played short to Zinchenko. Eventually, Sterling let fly, the shot was blocked, and Burnley cleared. For a while, the home side camped inside Burnley’s half and rolled the ball around. When Ashley Westwood fouled Agüero on the edge of the area, City had a free-kick in optimum position. Gündogan smashed this at the wall, though, and Zinchenko skied the rebound.

Some suspect goalkeeping from Bravo followed. Zinchenko passed to the Chilean and, in trying to find Nicolás Otamendi, he hit the ball out for a corner. Johann Berg Gudmundsson fired this in, Bravo was nowhere, and Ben Mee headed back across goal, exposing the one faultline in Guardiola’s team: the rearguard.

When Burnley did this again, they took the lead. Their keeper, Nick Pope, launched a high ball, John Stones miskicked badly, and Barnes roved forward, then smacked a finish past Bravo.

City’s first act of the second half was a raking Danilo ball that hit Sané on a right-left diagonal.
Zinchenko darted into the area, but the wide man overcooked the pass. Later, Sané ballooned a cross straight out, in a further indication that, so far, this was an off-day.

Silva rarely has these and the clever pass that went through Stones’s legs to Gündogan in the area illustrated his usual excellence. Gündogan, though, failed to shoot and Burnley cleared.

The equaliser came from the quick free-kick that led to Dyche’s and Woan’s spat with Guardiola. As this started to calm down, Agüero slotted a 19th goal of the campaign – and 16 in 16 Cup outings – after a delightful Gündogan back-heel that removed Burnley’s rearguard.

Of the Argentinian, Guardiola said: “His quality in the box is amazing and we need his goals. He’s the kind of player who [as today] doesn’t do much in the first half, but, in seconds, he scores two goals. If we want to win something he’s essential for us.”

From here, City coasted, Sané finally finding high gear to slide in for a ninth goal of the season. He then became provider, picking out the substitute Bernardo Silva, who made it 4-1, seven minutes from time.

Manchester City 3 Watford 1   Back in Business
Tuesday 2nd January 2018 : GYKO at the Etihad

The show is back on the road. After the briefest of blips at Selhurst Park on New Year’s Eve, Manchester City began what could well be their next record-breaking run of consecutive victories with a comfortable win over Marco Silva’s Watford.

Raheem Sterling’s first-minute opener banished any lingering thought of the goalless draw at Crystal Palace and when visiting defender Christian Kabasele converted the ball into his own net inside the opening quarter of an hour, victory was never in doubt.

Sergio Aguero scored his customary goal against this opposition, adding a third in a sedate second half, and though Andre Gray’s late consolation will not have pleased Pep Guardiola, by that stage his side were certain of restoring their 15-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

The gap could be cut by one point if Chelsea win at Arsenal on Wednesday night, but what the chasing pack do is becoming more irrelevant with each passing week at the Etihad. This has the potential to be a historic year for City and this victory was a suitable way to start it.

It took them just 39 seconds to score the fastest goal of the Premier League season so far and ensure that they would not draw successive league blanks for the first time in the Guardiola era.

David Silva, back in the starting line-up after a spell away due to personal matters, slid one of his trademark through balls in behind Watford's backline to Leroy Sané on the left flank. His first-time cross arced its way to the far post where Sterling was waiting to finish off the simplest of his 18 goals so far this season. It was child’s play.

John Stones, another returnee, should have added the second minutes later after more good work from Sané on the left but the defender, making his first start since November following a hamstring injury, blazed over the crossbar. The Etihad was not too concerned. Five minutes in and a goal up, City were already in total control.

Guardiola’s side eventually doubled their lead after 13 minutes, though it was a Watford player who applied the final touch. Christian Kabasele’s sliding attempt to intercept Kevin De Bruyne’s low cross was sloppy and duly punished, with the ball looping past Heurelho Gomes and into the corner of the net.

De Bruyne was a surprise inclusion having left the Selhurst Park pitch on a stretcher two days previous, but the outstanding player of this Premier League season looked both unscathed and unfazed by Jason Puncheon’s horror tackle. Shortly after his cross had helped increase City’s lead, he almost added a third, cracking a free-kick against the bar.

Watford steadied themselves as the first half progressed and had chances of their own before the break, the best of which fell to Andre Gray. It was the type of opportunity that away sides who travel to the Etihad with modest expectations simply have to take but the visitors’ lone striker fired straight at Ederson.

It was a timely warning against complacency and suggested that Watford could yet make this a contest, but Silva’s side failed to build on that one clear-cut opportunity and gave their hosts few other reasons to worry for the remainder of the half. City re-emerged after the break and resumed control, with their share of possession nearing the 80 per cent mark as they patiently probed in search of a third.

Aguero found it shortly after the hour mark. The Argentine, scorer of a hat-trick in the reverse fixture at Vicarage Road in September, had spurned his fair share of opportunities in the previous 63 minutes but was on hand to stab the ball home from close range after Gomes had parried another De Bruyne cross into a crowded penalty area. It was his tenth goal in six appearances against Watford.

If anything, City were now too comfortable and with eight minutes remaining, Gray atoned for his first-half miss and wiped out what would have been a fourth consecutive clean sheet for the hosts. Watford’s consolation was well-worked, with Andre Carrillo beating Kyle Walker. Ederson failed to cut out the winger’s low cross and this time, Gray could not miss, tapping in at the far post.

Watford’s tails were up for the closing stages and the visitors caused a complacent City more problems than they had previously managed but this late show of endeavour failed to produce any clear chances. The game had been won since the 39th second.

Chairman - Khaldoon Al Mubarak

Vincent Kompany on a mission in the Congo - If you ever wondered if the modern footballer is all take and no give, just watch this series of video's taken from the Man City Official website. I make no excuses for listing them here as I for one wish to promote both Man City FC and any worthwhile cause, and they don't come much better than Vincent's efforts to give the kids of his father's homeland a chance to change their lives.

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.
