More money than you can sheikh a stick at.

AdvantagesLoyalty, Passion.

DisadvantagesInconsistent, more downs than ups.

"I have followed city since 1989. My cousin took me to Maine Road to watch City play against Crystal Palace. It was a day that will always stick in my mind. At the time I would have been 11 years old. My cousin was a member of the Kippax stand. I had never been before and wasn?t a member, my cousin went to an adult turnstile and I went to the juniors. When I tried to pay the man taking the money wouldn?t let me in, my cousin had already gone through ..." Read review

IN THE BLUE CORNER

AdvantagesSee op

DisadvantagesSee op

"Manchester City may have been a bit of a yo-yo club over the past five years. Starting in the Premiership they suffered two successive relegations to end up playing the likes of Macclesfield and Wrexham. Since then they have bounced back, only to come back down again. Now under Kevin Keegan they look set to return to the top division and re-unite the Manchester derby and look to more consistency. Keegan has worked hard to make a team that is both ..." Read review

Once in a blue moon, hopefully not. Review with images

AdvantagesEntertainment. Loyal supporters.

DisadvantagesCan't help thinking it will all end in tears.

"...ever in the history of Manchester City Football Club. For myself and for probably most of the Manchester City supporters out there, this is quite an unusual feeling. After all, Manchester City are famous for shooting themselves in the foot, for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. This was going to be the day that all my years of devoted support culminated to. This was going to be the day when Manchester City would emphatically be crowned champions ..." Read review

Blue Nosed But Not Red Faced

AdvantagesGreat Stadium, Good Atmosphere

DisadvantagesPricey Pizzas!

"...in order to get to Manchester for an 8.00pm kick-off. Then we had a five-hour journey home ending back in Norwich around 4am. Of course you then find yourself completely knackered and need the rest of the day to recover. But the trip was worth it. I class Manchester City as one of the clubs in the Premiership who I'd like to see do well. They've really been through the doldrums in the last decade, starting in the premier league, dropping out and ..." Read review

Good to have a Manchester derby match again

Advantages

Disadvantages

"...fan I’m pleased to see Manchester City back in the top flight. Not only because they are sure to take a few points off their Old Trafford neighbours but because Manchester City is a team that belongs in the highest division. Manchester City may not have won many trophies over the years but they have always been one of the teams to beat and it was a big shock to everyone when there were relegated twice in succession. Now they are back in the big time ..." Read review

Come on City!!!

AdvantagesA wonderful loyal team full of loyalty

DisadvantagesCan be quite inconsistant

"... My husband is an avid Manchester City Supporter, we have everything, a mirror in our living room with the liricks of 'Blue Moon' engraved on it, to duvet, pillow sets and curtains, even our two young sons were made to wear man city sleep suits when they were born. Our son's are also Man City supporter and own both home and away kits. I never used to be that interested in football but gradually i got more and more involved until i found myself ..." Read review

Got dem old new manager relegation blues

AdvantagesExciting

DisadvantagesToo exciting

"City fans are a hardy breed of folk – they have to be with some of the comings and goings over the last four or five years. They’ve been up and down more times than a bride’s nightie and the end of last season saw the customary end of season divisional change as they dropped into the first division. If truth be known, it had been obvious that they were on their way to relegation for weeks beforehand. We City fans had written off ..." Read review

How to go from D2 - Premiership in just two years!

AdvantagesStrong squad, good manager, nice ground

DisadvantagesBudget

"Man City are an excellent team, and as being a Swindon fan and having experienced being thrashed by Man City 4-0 away, I can fully appreciate this fact. In 2000/2001 they seem to have got it all hooked up, especially with the fabulous signings of the excellent Paulo Wanchope and George Weah! The kit is a horrible shade of blue and yet it isn't too much of an eyesore unlike most Premiership kits of today. Man City do not show any signs of getting ..." Read review

From a Man U fan, i wish u luck!

AdvantagesGood for Manchester

DisadvantagesWhat if you beat us?

"I am a Manchester United fan and although this may be a very uncommon view from 'us', I wish the blues luck i ntheir quest to remain in the Premier League. Until recently I had lived in Manchester all my life and had been brought up in schools where there was always a good mixture of football teams supported, but I enjoyed the banter with supporters of the other Manchester team. I think it is good for the profile of the city that two teams are in ..." Read review

AdvantagesWeah and Wanchope

DisadvantagesDefence!!

"I think that Joe Royle did a fabulous job in the last two years with City. They done incredible to be promoted in the two years that they did. In the Prem though, I think it will be a different story. they do not have the quality or depth to be able to cope in the Premier. I think for sure that they will be one of the all season strugglers. Joe did excellent to bring in Weah. He is easily one of the most talented players in the world and he is a ..." Read review

Joe Royle is da man

AdvantagesWanchope

DisadvantagesForm ATM

"Joe royle - is he a great manager? YES. he has mangaed to get this team - an ailing Second division side into the Premiership in successive years - an achievement that deserves much applaud. he is a top manager and proved this when he lead Everton to win the FA cup back in 1995. His side are young - and old but they play like a premiership team. They currntly stand mid table and have already beaten the Leeds side 2-1 - a great result for them. Man ..." Read review

Better than United?

AdvantagesThe manager

Disadvantageslack of squad depth

"Manchester City have been in the shadow of United for too long. They are a great club in their own right and are now looking like the great club they are. Under the management of Joe Royle, Manchester City have developed into a resilient side, who not only look like maintaining their premeir league status, but also challenging for honours. However, there is still plenty of work to be done, and it will be some time yet I believe, before Manchester ..." Read review

COPING IN PREM

Advantages

Disadvantages

"I think that Joe Royle has brought City where they should be,he started off his campaign for City against Ipswich (the year we got relegated from the Premiership)and from then he has done a great job.The players have worked and understood with Joe at City while he has been they. Iv been a season ticket holder for 4 years this one being my 5th and i can tell that Joe has turned the club massively during the summer bringing very good players to the ..." Read review

Congratulations Joe Royle

Advantages

Disadvantages

"...at you if you said Manchester City would be back into the Premiership soon after being in division two. The man responsible who should be praised is Joe Royle. Manchester City have never belonged in any other division but the top and thanks to him they are now where they belong. He intends to keep them their too, being ambitious in attempted signings such as Ugo Ehiogu, and even if his signature was not captured someone else will be found. ..." Read review
