Results Review:May
City had won their last 4 games of the season to secure a top 4 finish and won the FA Cup. Below are the results in full.

Final

Man City 2vs0 Chelsea
Attendance:90000
A great day for Manchester City as they won the FA Cup for the 1st time since 1969. Manager George Graham has became a big favourite with the City fans. When asked by Kick! Magazine "What are your feelings about being the manger to end City's 8 year wait without a trophy?", George had this to say "Just fantastic, I had a feeling that we would win from the very beginning, but it's a cup competition so anyone could win. The Man Of The Match Yaya Toure had also had his say on the victory " I am so delighted about the victory especially as I scored the winner."

Both Fabio Capello and Francois Zahoui were in the stands looking at players for the next national squads. The England manager was looking at Joe Hart, Gareth Barry, James Milner, Ashley Cole, John Terry and Frank Lampard. The Ivory Coast manager was looking at Yaya Toure, Kolo Toure and Dider Drogba. Ex Manchester City manger Roberto Mancini was in the stands. The goal scorers were Vagner Love and Yaya Toure.


Everton 0vs1 Man City
City managed to beat 9 man Everton thanks to a goal from James Milner in the 58th minute. Heitinga received a straight red card for hacking down Jo with a two footed challenge in the 81st minute. 4 minutes later 19 year old centre back Shane Duffy got sent off as he tripped Jo up. George Graham stuck up for Shane Duffy in his press conference after the game by saying "Jo should off got booked for diving instead of Duffy getting sent off. Next time Mike Dean needs to get his facts right and say it was a dive because it was clearly a dive." The Man Of The Match was James Milner.

Man City 3vs0 Stoke
City were helped to the 3 points by a brace from Vagner Love in the 36th and 45th minutes. Jerome Boating scored the opener in the 17th minute. The Man Of The Match went to City's Vagner Love.

Bolton 0vs1 Man City
Last game of the season. A game that City needed to win and Liverpool to drop points meant that they went into the Champions League. Liverpool were headed to a 0-0 draw by Aston Villa which meant City went into the Champions League. The goal scorer was Vagner Love who scored on the stroke of half time. The Man Of The Match was Vagner Love.

I've bought in 11 players into the club this transfer window and spending £111m. But only 3 of them will be in my 1st choice 11. I also wanted players with Champions League experiance for my Champions League squad.


Gareth was bought in for a fee of £43.5m. I wanted someone that could play anywhere on the left wing so Bale was my man. Also he has had the Premier League experiance.


Demba was bought in for a fee of £12.25m. I was looking for a better player but all of the clubs rejected the bids that I made. He is going to be in my starting 11.


Bruno was bought in for a fee of £26m. Same as Demba I wanted a better player but none of the clubs acepeted my bids. He will be in my starting 11.


Alex was bought in from Southampton for a fee of £5m. At just the young age of 18 he will be playing in cup games against lower league teams. I believe he will become a great player in the future.


Alex was bought in for a fee of £4.4m, which was his realse clause. Same as Chamberlain he will be playing in cup games against lower league teams and will be a great player for the future.


Marc was bought in for a fee of £2m. Same as the two Alex's he will be playing in the cup against lower league teams.


Willian was bought in for a fee of £5m. He will be a back up player this season. But in the next few seasons he will be moved into the starting 11.


Ashely was bought in for a fee of £1.7m. Many people will be asking why I bought him. It all started when I asked Gareth just after he joined if he could reccomend a back up defender. So I made a bid for him. He will be a back up.


Fernadno was bought in for a fee of £650k. I was suprised when Real Madrid only wanted £650k for him. He will be a back up player.


Jose was bought in for a fee of £3m. He will be rotaed around with Jerome Boating.


Phil was bought in for a fee of £7.5m. He is going to be partnering Ashely Willams in the back up starting 11.
