Manchester City have had very mixed emotions when it comes to success. Three League Titles, five FA Cups and two League Cups is nothing to be ashamed of. Their most successful years were 1967 - 1976, a period which also saw the blue half of Manchester lift the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1970. read more
A problem for City though, and especially their loyal fans, is that they have found it difficult to step out of the shadow of neighbours Manchester United. Even when they clinched the League Title in 1968, United were off conquering Europe.
After losing out in the FA Cup Final in 1981, City endured years of decline. They found themselves slumped in the third tier of English football in 1998 and fans were wondering what had happened to their club. However, goalkeeper Nicky Weaver was the hero in a dramatic 1999 play-off final penalty shootout which started City’s journey to the top.
City were promoted to the Premier League in 2002 and soon established themselves as a top flight club, Qualifying for Europe and defeating City rivals United several times along the way.
In August 2008, The Abu Dhabi United Group purchased the club which would see the fortunes of City transformed rapidly. They showed their intentions immediately, bringing world sensation Robinho in from Real Madrid for £32.5 million. City would go on to spend over £200 million, attempting to build a squad to rival Europe’s best. After replacing boss Mark Hughes with Italian Roberto Mancini in 2009, success wasn’t far away. Mancini guided City to their first trophy since 1976 winning the 2011 FA Cup.
The following season, City fans’ dream came true on the final game of the 2011/12 campaign. With seconds left on the clock and the title seemingly heading to Old Trafford, Sergio Aguero struck past QPR keeper Paddy Kenny with the last kick of the game to send the Etihad into heaven and clinching Manchester City’s 3rd league title.
A trophyless season followed however which resulted in Mancini being replaced by Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini.
