City v Villareal (UEFA CL) – Tue 18 Oct 2011 [2V1 WIN]

One of the most frustrating games of the season this one for me!

City decided to hand out cardboard cutouts to everyone in the crowd which looked spectacular when held in the air at the start of the match.

Unfortunately too many childish fans decided to make them into airplanes and throw them at the match officials prompting the tannoy guy to repeat that we would get fined.

It was a very hostile atmosphere after going down 1v0 but the mood was changed and immense celebrations occurred when Aguero bagged a last minute winner. ;)

The banana was well and truly split and the Villareal fans and players never took this well.

City v Villa (League) – Sat 15 Oct 2011 [4v1 won]

We went down to this match with My Mum and Dad and was quite nervy knowing that we had a must win CL game directly afterwards.

An amazing performance from City despite resting creative wizards Silva and Nasri.

Goals from Balotelli 29, Johnson 46, Kompany 51, Milner 70 sharing the love throughout the team.

Villa couldn’t cope with us today with Villa old boys Milner and Barry showing why they made the move to City with strong performances.

Another strong 4 goal win, goal difference could be important this season

Rovers v City (League) – Sat 01 Oct 2011 [0-4 win]

Superb game at Ewood Park, we stayed over night at the Darwin hotel and we were treated to a graet performance from the blues.

After a tough goalless first half we bagged 4 in quick succession, goals scored by
A Johnson 56, Balotelli 59, Nasri 72, Savic 86.

Johnson scored a cracking cutling shot, followed up by a KungFu kick by Balotelli.
Nasri scored late on and Savic scored a bullet header to make it 4.

The thing that stood out for me that day was the noise of the crowd. The entire stand screamed Mancini Manci throughout as support for the Tevez incident in Munich.

On the other side of the scale it was sad to see the Blackburn fans be so cruel to Steve Keane.

0v4 and a cracking away day out with 82% possesion

He comes from Italy to manage Man City

Bayern v City (UEFA CL) – Tue 27 Sep 2011 [0v2 loss]

No wonder Roberto Mancini’s head slumped in the Allianz Arena dug-out at one stage. City’s Champions League challenge is suddenly in danger of being snuffed out after the first defeat of the season.

Gomez put us to the sword with 2 goals when we should have had 2 pens early on

I don’t think we will forget or forgive Tevez for this, we watched this down in Manchester at the Green and never really appreciated the magnitude of what happened until the following day.

City v Everton (League) – Sat 24 Sep 2011 [2v0 win]

Goals from second-half subs Mario Balotelli and James Milner helped maintain City’s blistering start to the season with a 2-0 win over Everton.

Balotelli was on the pitch for just eight minutes when he opened the scoring with a crisp, curling shot from the edge of the box and Milner added a late second to seal the points against a stubborn, unadventurous Toffees side.

A good solid win against Everton who are often tough to dispatch.


Fulham v City (League) – Sun 18 Sep 2011 [2-2]

City dropped their first points of the season thanks to a docile second half performance at Craven Cottage.

Bit of a disappointing result after going up by 2 goals.

Two goals to the good and seemingly on the way to a fifth straight Barclays Premier League win, the Blues fell asleep against the bottom side and paid the penalty as the home team grabbed an unlikely draw.

2 Aguero (18 & 46mins mins) first half goals were not enough to take the points home

City v Napoli (UEFA CL) – Wed 14 Sep 2011 [1-1]

A tough match, Napoli played 3 at the back and we couldn’t handle the counter attacking. Cavani and Lavezzi were awesome and looked deadly every time they broke forward. This match was going to be costly in the race for Champions League progression.

Cavani grabbed a goal which looked to be the winner but Kolarov grabbed an equaliser with a cracking freekick


City v Wigan (League) – Sat 10 Sep 2011 [3-0 win]

Aguero hatrick (13,63,& 68mins) puts Wigan to the sword.

We truly are blessed to have such a player at our club, I wonder if he will go on to make history!

City running away with it :)


Spurs v City (League) – Sun 28 Aug 2011 [1-5 win]

Dzeko showed just why he has become first choice for Roberto Mancini’s new galacticos with the brilliant four-goal blast that devastated Tottenham in a remarkable White Hart Lane victory.

The Bosnia striker, who couldn’t buy a Premier League goal last season, snapped up a perfect hat-trick then added an injury-time stunner to emphasise his own potency and that of the buoyant Blues.

Samir Nasri conjured an impressive enough midfield debut on his instant return to north London, but his performance – and a good few others – was totally overshadowed by Dzeko’s irresistible display.

Superb performance from City, what a player Dzeko is, 4 special goals, I find it hard to choose between the backwards header and the amazing strike from 30 yards.

Gotta love the grin on Nasri’s face after Dzeko scores again.
