The summer was very long without any football although I watched as much of City’s pre-season as I could on TV and made the trip to Wembley for The Community Shield. Despite losing to Utd I had a great day out and met up with some City Tweeters at The Green Man in Wembley before the match.
The season seemed to have only just begun with a 4-0 home victory over Swansea and two away victories, 3-2 against Bolton and 5-1 against Spurs, before we got an International break. City had made a great start to the season; Dzeko scored 4 goals against Spurs, 1 against Bolton and 1 against Swansea, Aguero gave us 2 against Swansea and 1 against Spurs. Added to Silva’s against Swansea and Bolton and Gareth Barry’s at Bolton we had 12 goals in 3 games with 3 conceded.
On Saturday we had a home match against Wigan and an opportunity to take another look at our summer signings and hopefully add to our goals tally. We were not disappointed. A hat trick from Aguero gave us three Poznan opportunities and we witnessed some beautiful football, not least from the amazing David Silva who seems to be everywhere on the pitch and linked up with Tevez and Aguero for the first goal and again with Nasri and Aguero for the second before setting up Aguero for the third. Despite Tevez failing to score from the penalty spot and Micah Richards and Vinnie Kompany being frustrated by the woodwork City demolished Wigan in style and if they can keep up this beautiful football and keep some clean sheets this is going to be a season to remember, for all the right reasons.
This really is a good time to be a City supporter.
