Wigan Ath 1 Manchester City 0  Who Ate All The Pies
Monday 19th February 2018 : GYKO at the DW Stadium

Manchester City cannot say they were not warned. For 79 minutes of this magnificent FA Cup fifth round tie, the DW Stadium reminded their visitors of what their incendiary striker can do at any moment. It was inevitable. Will Grigg would catch fire and when he did, Pep Guardiola and players saw their hopes of an unprecedented quadruple went up in smoke. 

Wigan Athletic have yet another famous cup triumph over City to celebrate, and though this one did not end with a trophy as in 2013, or come in their opponents’ backyard like that the year after, it will live equally as long in the memory. 

The imperious air around Guardiola’s side was shattered here, their hopes of making history ended, against all expectations. Even after Fabian Delph’s red card at the end of the first half had reduced the favourites to 10 men, it seemed unlikely.

Yet as against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Bristol City earlier this season, opponents from a lower division did not allow City to have things their own way and proved more resilient than many of the top-flight sides to have come up against this team.

City dictated the tempo, of course, but had no answers to Paul Cook’s dogged and disciplined defence, which limited them to all but a handful of clear chances. Wigan, meanwhile, always felt they would only need one opportunity. When it came, Grigg took it and ignited.

The pre-match buildup was dominated by memories of the final between these two five years ago, Ben Watson’s 90th-minute headed winner and the greatest day in Wigan’s humble history. 

Victory here would never be considered as momentous, but it would arguably be harder to come by. Rather than a ragtag City in the death throes of a manager’s reign, Wigan found themselves against a team aiming for victory on all fronts this season and perhaps on the cusp of something historical.

City, however, did not start like a side with realistic aspirations of a quadruple and two early errors by Danilo almost allowed Wigan in. 

The right back first allowed Nathan Byrne’s tame cross to bundle through his legs and was lucky that Claudio Bravo reached the ball before Gary Roberts. Minutes later, he was hustled off the ball by Roberts, who sent a smouldering Will Grigg bursting through at pace. His shot rippled the side netting.

Wigan were making the most of the space offered by Guardiola’s high line in these early stages, and though the visitors dominated possession wise, they struggled to fashion many opportunities of their own in the first half. 

Fernandinho wasted the best of them, blazing John Stones’ knockdown over from nine yards out, while Sergio Aguero forced goalkeeper Christian Walton into a fine save in added time at the end of the opening 45 minutes.

That had appeared to be that for the first half, but its most significant moment followed shortly after. 

Having being called into a 50-50 contest for the ball with Max Power, Delph launched into what could be described as a robust challenge at best. Referee Anthony Taylor initially drew a yellow card out of his pocket but, having perhaps considered Guardiola’s criticism of such tackles in recent weeks, elected to show a red.

Guardiola was incandescent on the touchline and remonstrated with Cook, who also shared words with Aguero. The scuffles continued in the tunnel where Peter Reid, now working in an voluntary advisory role at Wigan, acted as peacemaker between the two managers.

The interval came at just the right time and cooled off a cup tie that had threatened to boil over. Both sets of players and staff re-emerged becalmed and, despite being a man short, City picked up where they had left off. 

On the balance of play you would assume it was Wigan, not City, down to ten, such was the visitors’ dominance of the ball at the start of the second half. Their share of possession broke the 80 per cent barrier in those minutes but, despite dictating the flow of play, they still struggled to truly test their hosts’ well-organised defence.

It was a testament to how well Cook’s side were coping that, after an hour had been played, Guardiola relented and introduced Kevin De Bruyne from the substitutes’ bench, but even the outstanding player of the Premier League season could have an immediate impact. City laboured on.

The visitors were committing so many men forward that they were always liable to be exposed at the back, but they never expected their downfall to come by way of their own hand. Kyle Walker was the culprit, allowing the ball to escape under his foot and trickle through to Grigg. 

Walker gave chase and almost caught up but at the last possible moment, just as he began to lose balance, the Wigan striker arced a finish around Bravo and into the far corner. 

In the remaining 10 minutes, City laid siege and fired off more attempts than they had managed in the previous 80. Walton came into his own, claiming each cross that he could and, in the final minute of an interminable stoppage-time period, he clutched a Danilo header that seemed destined to drop in. 

Finally, the final whistle sounded. City will have to wait to make history, while Wigan keep writing new chapters

FC Basel 0 Manchester City 4    Swiss Roll Over
Tuesday 13th February 2018 : Richard Codling at St Jacob Park Stadium for GYKO

Away games are meant to be difficult, especially in the knock-out rounds of the Champions League, but this Manchester City team are no longer playing by football’s usual rules. Here in Basel they turned a challenge into an exhibition, controlling the whole match and recording a 4-0 win that should really have been six or seven.

What was so impressive about it was that City did exactly what Guardiola promised they would try to do, imposing their game on the opposition in their home ground. This is a Swiss fortress, the national stadium, but City took control in the first half and never let go.

The noisy home crowd and the freezing temperatures made not the slightest bit of a difference. Nor did a competitive opponent who beat Manchester United here back in November. This was, for want of a better phrase, typical City, their 16th away win of a remarkable season. Anyone who saw them win 4-0 at Feyenoord, 6-0 at Watford or 4-0 at Swansea City – or any number of narrower wins – will have recognised it instantly.

This effectively puts City into the quarter-finals and kills the return leg in Manchester on 7 March. They got Leroy Sane and David Silva back on the pitch too, and the games ahead of them look more conquerable than ever.

It feels strange, looking back, but Basel did cause City some problems in an opening spell that suggested this might even be an open back-and-forth. With City defending as high up as they do there was space in behind. Dimitri Oberlin raced onto one through ball, beat Ederson to it, but skewed his finish. The next time Oberlin was through, Nicolas Otamendi flattened him in the box but went unpunished.

But there is no other team like City when it comes to turning it on and ripping a game away from the opposition before they even realise what has happened. That is what happened here, with three goals in a 10-minute spell that ended the whole contest.

First Basel conceded a sloppy corner which De Bruyne whipped in from the left. Ilkay Gundogan had already had one header saved but Basel did not switch on. He darted away from Fabian Frei at the near post and angled his header into the roof of the net.

When City play like this nothing they do looks too complex. Basel were sat deep in a 5-4-1 but even then City could slice their way through with every attack. The patterns are now so ingrained, and the execution so precise, that every attack gets through. So it was when Raheem Sterling ran down the left, released by De Bruyne, and crossed to the far post. There was Bernardo Silva, with the time and poise to take the ball down and volley it back past Tomas Vaclik, dipping through the Basel keeper and in.

Two away goals in five minutes is as dispiriting as it gets, and despite the home support the Basel’s players’ heads dropped. The third came far too easily. Fernandinho stormed through the middle, and when he was eventually tackled by Leo Lacroix the ball fell to Sergio Aguero. 25 yards out, he still had enough time to pick his spot in the bottom corner, as Marek Suchy just lazily turned his back. Even at 3-0 City kept coming, and their best move of the half almost brought them a fourth, De Bruyne sweeping just over from Delph’s cross from the left. Still, 0-3 away from home was not a bad start.

And when you have your opponent pinned like this, why would you let up? City just continued to play the same way in the second half, pressing, passing, attacking, trying to drag the game as far away from Basel as they possibly could. And it worked, and nine minutes after the restart they had their fourth. Aguero drove forward and found Gundogan on the edge of the box. He controlled the ball with his first touch, took it away from Fabian Frei with his second then curled it into the far top corner of the net with his third.

With a lead that big, City could start to think about Wigan Athletic on Monday, the Carabao Cup final, and everything after that. So Raheem Sterling came off for Leroy Sane, just 16 days after what was feared to be a serious ankle injury. Then De Bruyne got well-earned rest, replaced by David Silva.

City should have scored more, and Gunodgan should have had a hat-trick. Guardiola is a perfectionist and will not be delighted, but he should be happy enough.

Manchester City 5 Leicester City 1  Aguero Masterclass
Saturday 10th February 2018 : GYKO at the Etihad

The Manchester City juggernaut rolls on. Another victory - their 13th straight Premier League win at the Etihad Stadium – and another prolific day for Sergio Aguero who continued his rich goalscoring form on home turf.

Initially City did not have it all their own way against Leicester, but when asked to go through the gears by Pep Guardiola they responded. Claude Puel’s Foxes capitulated.

Aguero helped himself to a four second -half goals to take his tally to 28 this season as he netted for the seventh home game in succession after Jamie Vardy had earlier cancelled out

Two of Aguero’s goals – a delicate chip and powerful strike from the edge of the box – would have been worth the admission fee alone.

It strengthened City’s position at the top of the Premier League table and took them 16 points clear of Manchester United, who travel to Newcastle on Sunday.

It also brought the tantalising possibility of wrapping up the title with a win over their bitter rivals in April a step closer.

Although should United drop points and City clinch it the week before, away at Everton, there is the salivating prospect for City of United's players giving them a guard of honour on to the pitch before the derby.

It is difficult to determine which would be sweeter for City supporters. For now, though, they should just enjoy the moment – Aguero’s superb finishing, Sterling’s dazzling runs and the inspirational Kevin de Bruyne’s creativity.

It did not take long for the home side to assert their authority as Sterling netted his 20th goal of the season – this time finishing easily from close range to banish the memory of the sitter he missed at Burnley.

Bernardo Silva cut the ball back to De Bruyne on the right and the Belgium midfielder, afforded too much space by Leicester’s defence, curled a cross into the penalty area and Sterling nipped in front of Marc Albrighton at the back post to guide the ball home.

However, shortly before the half-hour mark the visitors equalised when City were punished by a goal which owed much to the dogged persistence of Vardy.

The Leicester striker’s alertness saw him latch on to a sloppy pass from Nicolas Otemedni, burst into the penalty area and strike a shot – via the slightest deflection off Aymeric Laporte - past Ederson and into the corner of the net.

Vardy appears to be a man who relishes the big stage and this goal ensured he has scored against all of the Premier League’s top six clubs this season.

Puel’s decision to switch to a back four, with the introduction of Danny Simpson at half-time, did little to shore up Leicester’s backline as Aguero scored twice in five minutes succession shortly after the interval to effectively end the game as a contest.

A neat exchange between Sterling and De Bruyne on the right flank allowed the latter to tease a low cross which bypassed the flailing Harry Maguire was tapped in by Aguero.

Moments later a weak clearance from Schmeichel was ruthlessly punished as a clinical City move culminated in De Bruyne’s third assist and a fierce finish angled shot which the Leicester goalkeeper got a hand on but could not prevent going in.

With just under a third of the game left Riyad Mahrez – whose saw a proposed move to City on deadline day collapse - came on for Fousseni Diabate having ended his self-imposed exile.

The Algerian winger was bizarrely cheered by both sets of supporters. However, it was the City fans that roared the loudest with two more goals from Aguero.

First, he capitalised on another poor clearance from Schmeichel and lifted an audacious chip over the Dane, then late on struck a powerful effort from just outside the area which bounced in off the underside of the crossbar

Burnley 1 Manchester City 1   Burnley Make Their Point
Saturday 3rd February 2018 : Les Shopland for GYKO at Turf Moor

Johann Berg Gudmundsson ensured Manchester City rued their profligacy with an 81st-minute half-volley that grabbed Burnley an impressive draw against the champions-elect.

Raheem Sterling was the visitor’s prime culprit missing a series of easy chances, the last of which came inches out of an open goal, moving Pep Guardiola to replace him for the contest’s final quarter.

Ilkay Gündogan, Sergio Agüero and Kevin De Bruyne were also guilty of the charge though given City’s lead the manager will hardly be concerned. He will also be happy that after leading a City chorus of complaints about dangerous tackles none were meted out at Turf Moor.

Guardiola had surprised by naming only six substitutes, his reasoning being that as seven players were ill or injured he did not have any more. This meant that despite the £200m spend on the City Football Academy Guardiola decided against taking an development squad player. It seemed odd as the experience gained of mixing with talents such as Agüero and De Bruyne would surely have been invaluable.

Sean Dyche made two changes from the midweek draw at Newcastle United. Sam Vokes and Aaron Lennon – making a full debut – came in for Scott Arfield and Ashley Westwood. Guardiola brought in Vincent Kompany for Aymeric Laporte, Danilo for Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gündogan for the injured David Silva.

Danilo proved the sole City player whose radar was not awry. Midway through the first half, Bernardo Silva fed the left-back and he stepped inside and let fly a 20-yard scorcher that was always beating Nick Pope to his left, Burnley allowing the Brazilian space to work in.

At this stage, Burnley may have feared the kind of steamrollering City can hand out. Twice Agüero broke. First he took the wrong option in shooting when Sterling was free. Then the Argentinean did feed the winger but his effort went straight at Pope.

As the half-hour passed Burnley finally troubled Ederson, the goalkeeper saving a Ben Mee effort. The home captain had the next chance, too, but he headed wide from a corner.

This succour for Burnley faded as City swept forward. Kevin Long was booked for a challenge on Gündogan and moments later De Bruyne was in prime position to pot City’s second but could only find Pope, with Agüero unable to slot the rebound home.

At the period’s close De Bruyne fashioned one of his specials: a curving right-to-left pass that sliced Burnley apart and landed at Agüero’s feet. The No 10 should have added a 25th goal of the season but got his feet wrong and the danger fizzled out.

Dyche brought Matthew Lowton on for Bardsley at half-time and the right-back had an immediate impact, pinging the ball towards Ashley Barnes, Kompany having to stoop to clear.

At the other end Lowton was saviour, too, his back ensuring Agüero’s attempt was deflected away. Three corners followed but there was no second City finish and Guardiola was later left fuming at Sterling sailing the ball high with Pope’s goal at his mercy.

Dyche surely felt the same when Danilo was again allowed time and acreage to let fly at Pope a shot that warmed his fingers.

Now came Sterling’s most glaring miss, putting the ball wide, and then from Lowton’s free-kick the Icelander Gudmundsson equalised, to leave City rueing what might have been.

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.
