Manchester City 5 Crystal Palace 0     Demolition of the Palace
Saturday 23rd September 2017 : GYKO at the Etihad

A glance at the Premier League table on Saturday morning suggested that this should be a cakewalk for Manchester City, the division’s leaders and joint-top scorers, against a Crystal Palace outfit that has made the worst-ever start to a top-flight season.

The south Londoners made them wait for their walkover, however. Like a typical Roy Hodgson team, sitting deep and thoroughly drilled, Palace had several chances to take the lead and frustrated their hosts for the best part of the first 45 minutes. Then, the floodgates opened.

Once Leroy Sané’s brilliant breakthrough put City ahead on the cusp of half-time, it felt inevitable that this contest would end with a large margin on the scoreboard. A Raheem Sterling brace, a Sergio Aguero header and a late beauty from forgotten man Fabian Delph made it five in all and consigned the visitors to their sixth consecutive defeat.

Palace still have no win, no points or no goals in a season that, at six weeks old, can hardly be called ‘new’ anymore, and they almost shot themselves in the foot as early as the seventh minute. Mamadou Sakho, making his first Premier League start since completing his long-awaited move from Liverpool last month, thought it wise to clear a Kevin De Bruyne cross by sending a diving header towards his own goal. It hit the post.

That moment sent a shudder through the away support but it was not long before Palace responded in kind. Ruben Loftus-Cheek, the young Chelsea loanee searching for his first consistent run of top-flight minutes, caught the eye playing off lone striker Christian Benteke and no more so than when some nimble footwork beat John Stones and his deflected shot hit the outside of the upright.

The 21-year-old had another chance to end Palace’s record-breaking wait for a Premier League goal – which now stands at 540 long minutes – when a Timothy Fosu-Mensah cross deflected into his path off Fernandinho, but his sliced attempt glanced across the face of goal. It was the home support’s turn to be nervy now and they will also be sweating over the fitness of Benjamin Mendy, who departed on the half hour mark after injuring himself in a clumsy tackle on Andros Townsend.

With the half-time whistle nearing, Guardiola called a ball-boy over for what looked like a forceful chat. The message was clear: release it quicker, we need to score. He did not have long to wait. Sané and David Silva had already combined effectively to tee up Sergio Aguero, only for the Argentine to loft a clear chance over the crossbar.

This time, they took matters into their own hands, exchanging a neat one-two, with Silva lifting the ball over the top of on-rushing Palace defenders. Sané still had a man to beat but did so brilliantly, playing Paul Gascoigne to Scott Dann’s Colin Hendry, before slotting in at Hennessey’s near post. It was a sublime goal.

Palace’s resistance was now broken and from thereon, the game played out as predicted. Sterling’s first was a painfully simple goal to concede from Hodgson’s perspective, with the winger free to guide Sané’s cut-back into the net after being found in space at the far post. He should have added another minutes later from a similar position after Hennessey failed to claim a cross but, from a tight angle, hit the side-netting.

He found his second just before the hour mark and it was another finish taken with ease after Aguero sent De Bruyne’s raking pass back across the face of goal. Palace’s heads, by this point, had fully dropped and City were able to have their way with them.

Even with his players in full flow, Guardiola still found time to rage at the officials on occasion and was particularly displeased by their failure to award a penalty against Fosu-Mensah, who tugged Sané down in the box while City were searching for their fourth. No matter though, as it came a few minutes later.

Aguero, who began the day three goals away from surpassing Eric Brook as City’s all-time leading goal scorer, moved one step closer to the record by heading the ball through Hennessey’s limp hands. It was left to Delph, on for Stones, to round off the victory and the midfielder did so in emphatic fashion, arcing a long-range effort in off the underside of the crossbar. More misery for Palace, but City were in no mood to show mercy.

West Bromwich Albion 1 Manchester City 2    Baggies Come Close
Wednesday 20th September 2017 : Liam O'Connor for GYKO at the Hawthorns

Leroy Sane’s classy double strike fired a dominant Manchester City into round four of the Carabao Cup but only after Pep Guardiola’s men had survived a big scare at The Hawthorns.

There was no denying the Premier League leaders deserved to progress for an utterly dominant first-half display that brought the opening goal from Sane after less than three minutes.

Yet their failure to kill off Tony Pulis’s men looked set to land them with extra-time when Claudio Yacob equalised with 18 minutes to go and Albion even missed chances to sneak ahead.

Sane finally took charge on 77 minutes with an expertly-taken winner, only for West Brom to rattle the woodwork again in the dying seconds.

That left the fitness of Ilkay Gundogan as Guardiola’s main worry after the German limped off 59 minutes into his latest comeback game.

The midfielder had starred in his first start since damaging a cruciate knee ligament nine months ago but he was forced off after appearing to twist his other leg awkwardly.

The deadlock was broken with less than two and a half minutes played when City found holes in the Albion defence with relative ease.

Raheem Sterling exploited space on the City right to cross for Ilkay Gundogan and the midfielder’s shot was only parried by goalkeeper Ben Foster as far as Sane.

The winger drilled the rebound into the roof of the net emphatically.

West Brom believed briefly that they had levelled on 10 minutes when a ball broke for Hal Robson-Kanu to finish from close range.

But referee Mike Jones ruled out the goal for a foul by Grzegorz Krychowiak on Sane.

City were dominating possession, however, and they were twice denied a second goal in the 19th minute.

First, West Brom defender Gareth McAuley produced a superb block from a shot by Gundogan after smart pass by Sterling.

Them, from the resulting corner, Sane crossed for Eliaquim Mangala, whose header was beaten away by the diving Foster.

Gabriel Jesus should have doubled the lead on 25 minutes with a chance that he fashioned superbly for himself.

His quick footwork outwitted Gareth McAuley on the edge of the West Brom six-yard box, but the winger could not keep down his shot and it cleared the crossbar.

City had toyed with West Brom for much of the opening 30 minutes with Gundogan the chief tormentor, and on the half-hour he danced through the home defence again into the penalty area.

His progress was only halted when Albion midfielder Claudio Yacob got back to make a crucial challenge.

Sane sent an ambitious effort from distance wide of Foster’s goal just before the interval as City failed to add to his early opener.

But there was no hiding the total dominance of Guardiola’s men, who statistics showed had enjoyed almost 70 per cent of the first-half possession.

And they were denied superbly in stoppage time by Foster, whose one-handed save kept out Sterling’s bending effort.

The opening chance of the second half fell to West Brom when Craig Dawson delivered a cross onto the head of Jay Rodriguez.

But the Albion striker glanced a header wide after drifting away from Mangala.

Yaya Toure then went down after being caught by Hal Robson-Kanu before Gundogan’s impressive night came to a premature end.

He produced a superb run of around 60 yards that was ended by a sliding challenge from Yacob that left the German in obvious pain in his left knee - the opposite one to that which sidelined him previously.

He was called off immediately by Guardiola and replaced by Kyle Walker.

West Brom were much improved in the second period and, after James Morrison had sent an effort inches wide, Yacob popped up with the equaliser.

It owed much to poor defending from City, who left both Yacob and Jonny Evans unmarked in the six-yard box to meet a Kieran Gibbs corner.

The hosts should even have claimed the lead moments later when substitute Matt Phillips supplied a perfect cross for Robson-Kanu, only for the Wales striker to fire horribly wide.

And he was made to pay by Sane on 77 minutes when the German collected Bernardo Silva’s pass, cut inside Craig Dawson and curled a superb shot into the top corner.

Robson-Kanu missed a huge chance to equalise in stoppage-time when, unmarked, he blasted against the post from eight yards.

Watford 0 Manchester City 6        Watford Gap Widens
Saturday 16th September 2017 : David Walker for GYKO at Vicarage Road

Manchester City have blasted their way to the top of the Premier League and only an exceptional team will be able to challenge them. Watford, watched by Elton John and unbeaten before Pep Guardiola’s men rocked up here, fancied their chances but were blown away by a three-goal salvo before half-time.

City did not relent and struck the same number again in the second half, bringing their tally to 15 goals from their past three matches, this demonstration of their attacking power coming after the demolitions of Liverpool and Feyenoord.

City settled the contest in the first half thanks to a three-goal salvo in 10 minutes. Sergio Agüero scored twice and created one for Gabriel Jesus. Nicolás Otamendi added a fourth after the interval with a close-range header. Then Agüero rounded off his hat-trick, which is why he was happy to let Raheem Sterling take the penalty when the winger was fouled a minute from time. Sterling expressed his gratitude by finishing with the ruthlessness he sometimes lacks.

Watford had come into the game on the back of three successive clean sheets in the Premier League but with their first-choice centre-backs still out injured extending that sequence to four was always going to be a tall order against one of Europe’s most awesome attacking forces.

Guardiola made one alteration to the City lineup that had started the midweek dismantling of Feyenoord in the Champions League, with Sterling replacing Bernardo Silva. It took him 20 seconds to make an impact as Sterling skittered down the right and delivered a low cross to David Silva. Adrian Mariappa blocked the Spaniard’s close-range shot, but the storm was never going to abate.

David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne orchestrated City’s relentless assaults. Benjamin Mendy thrashed a 20-yard shot just over the bar before, in the 10th minute, David Silva swept a diagonal pass over to De Bruyne, who cushioned the ball into the path of Sterling. However, the England winger mis-hit his shot from 10 yards. That was the only stain on an otherwise sparkling display by Sterling.

De Bruyne and Agüero went close with shots from outside the area as Watford were corralled deep into their own half. Yet in the 24th minute the hosts almost took a surprise lead from their first venture forward, Richarlison meeting a free-kick by José Holebas and heading a yard wide.

Agüero soon showed the Brazilian how it should be done. In the 27th minute, after Tom Cleverley was penalised near halfway for a foul on John Stones, De Bruyne flighted in the free-kick and Agüero headed past Heurelho Gomes, much to the annoyance of Marco Silva, the Watford manager appealing vigorously for offside.

The rain was hurtling down and the sky soon fell in on Watford. Agüero scored his second four minutes later, tapping into the net from four yards after excellent work on the left by Jesus and a feeble attempt by Gomes to cut out David Silva’s cross.

Agüero then became the supplier, running at Watford’s frazzled defence before slipping a pass through to Jesus, who fired into the bottom corner of the net from 10 yards.

Watford were inferior, no doubt about that, but never submissive. They rebelled quite strongly at the start of the second half and even had Ederson in the City goal worried for a moment, André Carrillo cracking a fine volley a couple of yards wide from the right-hand corner of the box.

Then Agüero resumed his quest for his hat-trick, twice shooting wide after being fed by Mendy. On the hour the Argentinian was thwarted by Gomes, who batted a crisp shot over the bar. The resultant corner led to City’s fourth goal, Otamendi heading home a cross by David Silva.

Nine minutes from time Agüero finally completed his treble. And with brio, too. After a fine run and pass by Kyle Walker, the striker burst past Christian Kabasele and guided a low shot beyond the reach of the advancing Gomes.

Another tricky run by Sterling provoked a foul in the box in the 89th minute. The winger picked himself up, consulted with Agüero and rifled the ball into the net from the penalty spot.

City, then, surpassed the 5-0 defeat they inflicted on Walter Mazzarri’s Watford back in May. Under Silva they are much better and went into this game knowing that a win would send them to the top of English football for the first time since 1982-83. Graham Taylor’s team finished that campaign as runners-up. City were relegated. That part of the history is certainly not going to be repeated any time soon.

Feyenoord 0 Manchester City 4    Dutch Treat
Wednesday 13th February 2017 : Les Bailey for GYKO at the

For the serial European under-achievers of Manchester City, this was a great night. They have only won their Champions League group once, from six attempts now, which explains in part why they have not truly made their mark on the knock-out rounds either.

So to open their campaign like this, with an emphatic 4-0 win away at Feyenoord, maintaining total control, never once looking troubled, playing with energy, precision and style, was the perfect start to their long campaign. Especially as Napoli, the next best team in the group, lost away in Ukraine at the same time. It is already advantage City in Group F, and if they do not win it from here, it would be entirely their mistake.

But while this was a great European night for City, it was not a great night for Europe. The Champions League is meant to provide robust competition between the continent’s best teams. This was the Dutch champions, remember, with their bright young coach, in their historic stadium, cheered on by 44,000 loyal fans. It should have been a test. But it felt more like City playing an FA Cup game away to a Championship team.

The gap between the teams was so big that at no point did this feel like an even contest, especially with City scoring their first after two minutes and their second after 10. It was all far too easy. City kept the ball in midfield, run again by David Silva and Kevin de Bruyne. When they wanted to go forward, get in behind and score, they did. Had they needed to score more than four, they could have done. The home crowd started loud but soon enough their only cheers were for fouls.

On the surface it was one of the great evenings of the Pep Guardiola era at City. Even when they are this good going forward they are not usually this tight at the back. It was very reminiscent of the second half against Liverpool on Saturday afternoon, when they put three goals past 10 tired men. City now have nine goals in two games that they might have looked at with some trepidation this time last week.

But like the Liverpool game, it did not feel like as much of a challenge as it might have done. City were so dominant that it never felt like a fair fight. Does that show that Feyenoord, like 10-man Liverpool, were not good enough to cause City problems and exploit their obvious weaknesses? Or that City play with such control and authority now that opponents are just rendered irrelevant? They will need more tests, more than Watford away on Saturday, to be clear.

Any nerves City might have had about this game cannot have lasted more than two minutes, with John Stones’ first goal showing up the uncomfortable distance between the sides. David Silva forced a corner down the left, took it quickly to Kevin de Bruyne and then crossed, before the Feyenoord defence could even switch on. Stones got ahead of Jan-Arie van der Heijden to head, Tonny Vilhena just stood on the line as the ball rolled through his legs and in.

This is meant to be a club built around the value of hard work; the club motto, Geen woorden maar daden, means ‘no words but deeds’. But these players, Dutch champions, could not even make it difficult for City, who looked like scoring every time they attacked. Eric Botteghin had to scramble a Jesus header off the line but soon enough City had their second.

This was a classic Guardiola move, a series of swift incisions, Aguero to Bernardo Silva to Kyle Walker, bursting down the right. He whipped in his low cross, Aguero darted away from the defender and volleyed straight in.

That was the end of the Feyenoord challenge, in truth, and it just became a question of how many City would score. Aguero had another saved and when the third came it felt almost farcical. Benjamin Mendy hammered a 30-yard shot, Brad Jones spilled it and Jesus tapped it in. The Feyenoord defenders thought he was offside but he was not.

In the second half Guardiola had an eye on other challenges, not least Watford away on Saturday afternoon. So he took off Aguero on the hour mark, just as he did to Jesus against Liverpool. For as long as Guardiola is going to keep playing them both together, he is going to need them both sharp.

City were just as dangerous as ever, especially when they had De Bruyne firing in his immaculate set pieces. He worked an angle with a short corner and curled in a brilliant cross, Stones got up ahead of Botteghin again, thumping his second goal of the night Brad Jones.

With City in complete control of possession, and the game, Sterling, Leroy Sane and even Fabian Delph came on at the end. The former Aston Villa man thought about scoring a fifth, then decided against it. Maybe Vicarage Road will prove harder than this.​

Manchester City 5 Liverpool 0      Scousers Pay The Price
Saturday 9th September 2017 : GYKO at the Etihad


Just before the hour mark, and as Gabriel Jesus was replaced by Leroy Sané amid applause from the home supporters on the back of a devastating display in front of goal, Kevin De Bruyne could be seen speaking with David Silva and Sergio Agüero. The Belgian went over to each in turn and appeared to be telling them what to do. It was impossible to pick up what he was saying, but given everything that had happened up until then, it would not have been a surprise to have learned that his message was a simple one: “Keep going, lads, I’ve got this.”

Manchester City’s biggest home win over Liverpool since September 1935 was a collective pummelling – and one aided by Sadio Mané’s initially controversial, but ultimately justified, sending-off – but what it highlighted amid the showers and sunshine of an early autumn afternoon is just how good De Bruyne is, and just how central he could be, in more ways than one, to City reclaiming their status as champions.

The 26-year-old was sensational here, assisting City’s first two goals, scored by Agüero and Jesus, playing a role in their fourth – put away by Sané – and generally providing a muscular, intelligent and technically excellent display from an advanced midfield position.

De Bruyne did not stand out by a distance among those in blue, but he did stand out, and at times appeared to be playing a completely different game to everyone else, such was the time and space he was able to find on the pitch. Little wonder Agüero and Silva listened so intently to his instructions – they knew as much as anyone that De Bruyne was in control of proceedings; that he well and truly had this.

“I am so happy with his performance,” said Pep Guardiola of City’s No17. “He is good on balls on the feet. He is good running, attacking the space. He is a complete player, one of our captains.”

With his two assists here, De Bruyne has now provided 39 in all competitions since arriving from Wolfsburg for £51m in August 2015. There have also been 23 goals and numerous man-of-the-match displays. Yet he cannot consider himself undroppable, and especially while Guardiola continues to deploy a system containing a three-man midfield in which Fernandinho provides the defensive support to two playmakers.

De Bruyne is competing to fill one of those spots not only with David Silva but also Bernado Silva, who is increasingly getting up to speed after his late arrival from the Confederations Cup and having signed from Monaco for £43.6m in May. Then there is Yaya Touré and Ilkay Gündogan to consider, with the latter returning to City’s matchday squad on Saturday for the first time since tearing cruciate knee ligaments in December. The competition is fierce and standards for those involved in the battle for recognition simply cannot drop.

De Bruyne appears to be aware of that if his display here is anything to go by. Deployed alongside David Silva for a fourth league match in succession, he tormented those in red from start to finish, starting off in a right-sided position but continuously moving across and through the lines. On 20 minutes he popped up on the left and caused Liverpool’s right-back Trent Alexander Arnold such concern with his incisive running that the teenager, so assured so far this season, found himself with no other option but to yank the midfielder down just outside the area and subsequently receive a yellow card.

Five minutes later came De Bruyne’s first assist and it told you so much about his assurance and ability. There was a touch to control the ball after it came his way from Fernandinho inside the centre circle and then, with nonchalant ease, a perfectly weighted through ball to set Agüero running free through the heart of the visitors’ defence. The Argentinean's goal made it six from six home league games against Liverpool.

The second assist, in first-half stoppage time, was more straightforward but no less perfectly executed – a left-wing cross that Jesus fired past Simon Mignolet via a header from an unmarked position – and then, on 77 minutes, came the pass to Sané, which eventually led to the German scoring the first of his two goals. Again De Bruyne was in a central position and, again, Liverpool had no idea how to handle him.

It should be noted that post-Mané’s sending off Liverpool were incredibly poor, all but giving up en route to their heaviest defeat under Jürgen Klopp, but that should not take away from City’s performance, one full of swagger and ruthlessness, and which suggests that for all their defensive frailties, which again were on show here, they have enough in attack to win the title.

And at the heart of it was De Bruyne, the reserved figure who catches the eye time and time again. Drop him if you dare, Pep. “This season he is in a good mood, maybe because he is a father,” said Guardiola. “We are a lucky club to have Kevin.”

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.
