Manchester City Progress In Uefa Youth League Despite Some Of Our Stand Out Star Youth Being Absent


 Manchester City FC's Elite Development Squad pulled off a fantastic feat in the Uefa Youth Champions League, winning all six of their games and topping their group by finishing off A.S.Roma with four second half goals.

The future looks bright and City have got this far without our new state of the art academy so it's hard not to be overly optimistic.

FW Bersant Celina, MF Brandon Barker, MF Jack Byrne & FW Thierry Ambrose scored the goals to top their group with a 100% win ratio.

Squad:

GK (E)Angus Gunn  
DF: (AG)Sam Tattum, Pablo Maffeo, (AG)(E)Tosin Adarabioyo, (E)Smith-Brown
MF Jack Bryne (76), (AG)Rodney Kongolo, Barker (90+3), (E)Kean Bryan
FW (AG)Bersant Celina (71), Thierry Ambrose (82)

Subs: (GK)(E)Charlie Albinson, (AG)(E)Charlie Oliver, (E)Cameron Humphries, (AG)Manu Garcia, (AG)(E)Aaron Nemane, Javairo Dilrosun, (AG)(E)Isaac Buckley-Ricketts

(AG) Academy Graduates
(E) English

Notable Absentees: Mathias Bossaerts, (E)Denzeil Boadu, Jose Angel Tasende, Seko Fofana, Oliver Ntcham, (E)George Evans, Sinan Bytyqi, Ian Lawlor, Shay Facey & (E)Jordi Hiwula.

Out on loan are: Jason Denayer, (E)Devante Cole, Albert Rusnak & Bismark Boateng.

The extremely exciting Kelechi Iheanacho who's out on loan as City currently apply for a work permit, and Jose Angel Pozo who has now been promoted to Manchester City's first team.

On the night 4 English youth we're on the field and 5 English youth on the bench, add to that the rest I mentioned above and it totals as 12 future England prospects.

Well done lads, keep it up.

Karma's A Bitch, A.S.Roma And CSKA Moscow Pay For It, Manchester City Show There's No I In Team

First of all I'd like to say to my readers, apologies for the inactivity due to personal reasons but if any City fans wish to contribute then get in contact via thisxisxourxcity@gmail.com.

I seem to recall our official City tweeter tempting fate by highlighting Totti's lack of goals on English soil, well that came back to haunt us but then Roma's arrogance fired back and boy did it back fire on a big scale being knocked out of the Champions League by liccle old City.

Roma tweeted in return "Thanks for the hospitality last night @mcfc. Looking forward to seeing you in Rome. You've never won a European game in Italy, have you?"

No we hadn't and might I add especially not without our Captain Kompany, not without our Silva Wizard, not without our star striker Sergio Sergio and not without our Midfield Titan Yaya Toure.

Wait a minute didn't we just knock out Roma without the spine of our team, so no more A.S. Roma and see you next season if you qualify.

The next one is just sheer golden satisfaction at it's best, the one and only CSKA Moscow well well well.

I seem to recall them showing our club and players nothing but utter contempt and disrespect, I seem to remember Uefa reducing their punishment for RACISM. I also seem to recall Uefa allowing them to allow fans into the home game against Manchester City despite having a stadium wide ban.

There were also reports that they failed to provide adequate sustenance for our players after the match, after Yaya Toure reported CSKA fans for racism their club decided to deny the racism and support their blatantly guilty fan base.

In a way Sergio being out of action worked in our favour, it gave our lads the opportunity to finally face palm all our critics and shut up the anti City brigade once and for all.

Branding us a one man team, claiming all we have is a team of money grabbing mercenaries who don't play for the shirt. We have no soul and will never be as big as the rags, well they may be right with the later one. We have the potential to eventually be even bigger, our critics and opponents are either in awe of our new academy facilities or completely jealous and dismissive aka Jose Moronho who thinks Chelsea are the only club to produce successful youth players, apparently we don't?

I could go on and on but I'll leave it there as you get my drift, our lads really did do themselves, our club proud tonight. Tonight has to be up there with our title wins and cup wins, may not be as dramatic a feel but up there non the less. Pablo Zabaleta you never let us down and just keep on getting better and better, already a City Legend. Those 1500ish City fans were fantastic again as usual, for most of the match all I could hear were our fans in full voice, in not exactly a small stadium might I add.

If anyone fails to take us seriously now, they are either stupid or both stupid and bitter. Either way we don't care cos we're not really here. Special thanks to Samir Nasri, you rarely get the credit you deserve and have put those loud mouth Arsenal fans right in their place tonight.

Rat Face Gary Neville had us down for a 1-1 draw and possibly out of the Champions League, looking forward to his post match opinion.

Onwards and upwards, Comon City.
