only asking cos city have spent nearly half your life in the championship and League 1.
Not sure what this has to do with what I said...? o_O

City were a nothing club for most of the PL era, but any season where you have a player score in the 93rd minute of the final game to win the league is exciting whether it's a fairytale like Leicester or one of the usual suspects.

haha i think I misread your post. Thought you were saying that you grew up hoping City would lose every week when they were rarely relevant or on TV during our lifetimes

Mancini was too cautious wasn't he? I remember a game at the Emirates when he did a Mou and parked the bus playing for a 0-0 when he really needed and could have got a win. Perhaps that was more a one off though I dunno

I don't get the hate for harry he was good imo, but poch could be best manager in the world within 3years
Harry had us playing some lovely stuff at times. Think the hatred comes literally by the way he talks - because he is a bit of a commoner. Snobby people don't like him

He didnt take a lot of risks but we played some beautiful football under Mancini (1-6 at Old Trafford, 1-5 I think at Spurs).

What he did though was control games, especially at home where we were near unbeatable.

11/12 for sure. That game at Arsenal the season before sticks in my memory because of all the flak he got. Deserved his title though

yeah he really took the club to that level that hughes couldn't dream of. made us tough to beat and just tough in general. shame he has the people skills of a mature age uni student. everyone hated him.

That's actually part of the reason I love Arry. Wish he was still in the premier league, I thought he was great value haha
