Flashback to the armtierige Manchester City Emile Mpenza: twelve years ago, just ten goals in their own home
Premier League 14 consecutive matches won. 98 points from 38 matches. 95 goals scored. Manchester City had this season a machine in the Premier League. Heaven and earth difference with the unsightly team twelve years ago, against the loss of moisture.

Impressive. That is the least what you think of the Premier League season, Manchester City can say. The team of coach Pep Guardiola crowned this weekend for the second year in a row to become champion in England after a very exciting battle with Liverpool. The ‘Reds’ were the first team in the Premier League that, despite 97 points satisfied had to make do with second place. That while Pep Guardiola and Vincent Kompany, the City then had about their “most fought-over title”.

And that does what to say. Kompany played the four-time champion in England, while Guardiola as top coach at Barcelona and Bayern, also the blows of the whip know. What the two are barely able to imagine is how the Manchester City for the arrival of petro-dollars from the United Arab Emirates, several of the degradation had to save. In the early 2000s played the then second team in Manchester, even a number of seasons in the Championship.

Egg so after that was twelve years ago, also the case. Well, one year before the takeover of Sheikh Mansour could City in the spring of 2007 with four dots in the surplus of the relegation rescue. The club ended with the fourteenth with 42 points. This happened under the guidance of coach Stuart Pearce with a selection of players that are nothing more compared with that of now. Or do you happen to have what there is of Sun Jihai, Hatem Trabelsi, Bernardo Corradi and Paul Dickov?
