Big year for the club. Third tier opening in the Colin Bell stand which will hopefully make it easier to get tickets for the bigger games.

Looking forward to seeing Sterling alongside Nasri,Silva and Augerroooooooooooooooooo. Not sure where Navas fits into this team.

City really need to tighten up the centre of the defence. Denayer is not the answer...yet. Kompany had a poor season last year and he needs to lead by example this term.

Another trophy less season and failure in Europe will cost the manager his job. Sad reality of being in charge of a club like City.

I am not a huge fan. I am Rangers through n through but do enjoy my trips to the Etihad where we are always made to feel welcome. The set up there is fantastic from the new training facilities to City Square where they have Bars , Cafes, burger vans and even BBQs. Tram system means getting to the ground from the city centre is hassle free. We really could learn lessons on how to treat your customers(supporters).

Hopes for the season are FA Cup...push the Rent Bhoys all the way in the league but most importantly the club really need to prove themselves in Europe. Barca have handed them their arses on a plate the last couple of seasons.

wheresoeverwhensoever and howsoever we are called upon to make our exit. We shall do so as free men.

Like many teams they have 1000s of supporters who buy season tickets and pick and choose. Makes it annoyingly difficult to get tickets. Every time I have been down there have been people looking for tickets outside the ground from daft o'clock.

We were going to do it ourselves as they have a limited number of season tickets at something silly like £299. The idea was to get three and leave them with mates down there who would sell them for the games we couldn't get to. It just seems like too much hassle though

Check out Viagogo site......

You can sell your tickets at face value. Handy, they send you a check for every game sold on their site!
