    Manchester City Football Club (nicknamed City, The Citizens, and The Sky Blues), are a professional football club based in Manchester, England. City were founded in 1880 as St. Mark's (West Gorton), before being renamed as Ardwick Association Football Club in 1887, and finally Manchester City in 1894 - and the origins can be traced back to members of St. Mark's Church of England, West Gorton - who founded the football club that would become known as Manchester City, for largely humanitarian purposes. Two church wardens sought to curb local gang violence and alcoholism by instituting new activities for local men, whilst high unemployment plagued East Manchester, specifically Gorton. All men were welcome to join, regardless of religion.

    The team's first recorded match occurred on 13 November 1880, and City gained their first honours by winning the Second Division in 1899 - with it came promotion to the highest level in English football, the First Division. In the seasons following the FA Cup triumph of 1904, the club was dogged by allegations of financial irregularities, culminating in the suspension of seventeen players in 1904, including captain Billy Meredith, who subsequently moved across town to Manchester United. Almost half a century later later, a City team inspired by a tactical system known as the Revie Plan reached consecutive FA Cup finals again, in 1955 and 1956; just as in the 1930s, they lost the first one, to Newcastle United, and won the second. The club continued to challenge for honours throughout the 1970s, finishing one point behind the league champions on two occasions and reaching the final of the 1974 League Cup.

    Prior to the takeover by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the club had enjoyed moderate levels of success through their history - however, since the start of the current decade, City have been buoyed by the signings of Sergio Agüero, Yaya Touré, David Silva, Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany - and have emerged as perpetual title contenders - winning the league thrice and repeatedly finishing in the Top 3. City play their homes games at the Etihad Stadium, and their biggest rivals are neighbours and opponents for the game, Manchester United.

    Keep Young, Smalling and Matic on the bench just in case we aren't losing by the 70 minute mark.

    Watch us get something out of this one but still end up missing top 4 with Liverpool winning the title to fully compound how bad this season has been.

    This is gonna be rough.

    Even at our best it would be a tough game but the way we're playing I fear we will be humiliated.

    Rather this:

    Mata
    Young - Rashford - Martial - Rojo
    Matic - Lingard
    De Gea - Romero - Jones
    Lukaku​

    Our toughest game left of the season, derbies are unpredictable but we put the Spurs loss behind us and need this to win the title. I think B.Silva will be key in this game and Sterling as usual, I think we'll win 2-0. Come on you blues!

    sorry I couldn't resist

    McTominay Garner
    Periera
    Chong Greenwood Gomes
    Alexis can come on for Chong or Gomes
    O'Connor or Laird on for Dalot or Shaw

    why not? Go with youth. If we win great, the youth may have something about them. If we lose, Liverpool suffer.

    We're gonna get a reaction performance. Can see us getting a draw, handing Liverpool the title. We'll be 4th position in the final game and somehow lose that game, missing out on champions League whilst those Scouse cnuts chant "thank you man United".

    I'm so scared.

    Martial shouldn't play again this season, you'd think that would bother him but I get the impression he doesn't care all that much.

    Sanchez to start please and what ever the issue with Herrera is, can it please go away?

    There was no reaction to going out of europe to Barca - so don't see why there will be a reaction to losing to Everton.

    City will batter United and we've fallen so far that it wouldn't be at all shocking if they won 6-0

    Don't even care about the result anymore. I just want to see a reaction from the players. To get one we probably need to drop a lot of them. Show them they're not untouchable.

    Romero
    O'Connor-Bailly-Lindelof-Shaw
    Fred-McTominay-Pogba
    Gomes
    Greenwood-Rashford

    Feck it.

    Please don't be tough on us, City. 3-0 is enough. We don't need another scandal after today.

    You just know we'll win this, or at least not loose which given all we have left to cheer this season is Liverpool not winning the league will be taken away from us like everything else this fecking club does

    Don’t give a single shit about Liverpool anymore this season, as much as I’d hate to see them winning the league I’m not going to hope we lose against fecking City. Drop few players, play for the win, top4 is still possible with today’s shambles of Arsenal.

    Prediction if we play this team: 0-2 (who cares, who cares)

    However, there will be a lot of running and endeavour by every outfield player (more than can be said yesterday), plus it sends a message to the useless ones.

    In a sadly recurring theme we reach the end of a season and I can barely stand to watch us.

    Sick of every single one of the players, sick of Woodward, sick of the board, sick of this season. Just want it to end.

    Utd 0 City 3

    People think we are going to take points off City? Seriously? Gueye and Morgan were running rings around our midfield today. Imagine what Silvas and a fit KDB can do !

    This is what Moyes said - we should aspire like city

    Play some kids. The senior players hid today, let them hide on the bench and in the stands on Wednesday.

    I bet most would be glad not to play.

    I'd take a 1-0 loss right now to be honest. I just don't want it to get Chelsea 6-0 levels of bad.
