“A Fitting End”

It might not have been the most memorable of games ever played at the Etihad, but for 3 players in particular it couldn’t have been a more fitting end to what – in my opinion – has been another fantastic season for Manchester City Football Club.

City v Southampton 1

A huge flag was held up by fans before kick-off.

First we have Joe Hart, the Premier League Golden Glove winner.

We saw the England #1 pull off some great saves again today in what has been one of his best ever seasons at the club, but the scary thing is – as Manuel Pellegrini has already mentioned – is that many believe he’s still yet to reach his peak.

If that’s true and Joe continues to improve year after year, then he’s certainly on course for being one of City’s – and England’s – best ever goalkeepers.

Next up is Sergio Aguero, the Premier League’s top scorer and Golden Boot winner.

Wasn’t it fitting that his last goal, in what can only be described as an incredible season for the Argentine, was also his easiest by far? If anyone deserves recognition for their input this season then it’s Sergio, as without his 26 goals I’m not quite sure where we’d have finished – so all I can say is thank you, Kun!

Finally we have Frank Lampard, one of the Premier League’s finest ever midfielders.

The players gave a lap of honour after the game.

Where do you start with someone like Frank? He’s achieved pretty much everything that can be achieved in English Football, and it’s amazing to see him still going strong at the age of 36. His goal was the perfect demonstration of what he’s done best over the years – being in the right place, at the right time – and it just goes to show that some things never wear off!

At the end of the day, while it’s sad to see yet another Premier League legend hang his boots up for the last time, I’m sure that I speak on behalf of all City fans when I say that it’s been an absolute pleasure to have him at our club (even though it was a short stay!)

In terms of this season as a whole – I personally couldn’t care less that we haven’t won any silverware. We’ve been spoilt over the past few years after a long break without trophies, but the way that I look at it is as long as we carry on playing entertaining, attacking football then that’s all that matters to me!

Lastly, I’d just like to say a massive thank you to everybody that has read and supported my blogs this season – it really means a lot to me and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading them as much as I have enjoyed writing them!

See you all next season! 🙂

    Great piece Daniel. The penultimate paragraph sums up my philosophy in a nutshell. Some players and fans deem it a failure not to win a trophy but some of the football (albeit not as much as last season) has been mesmerising and entertaining. No other team in the English League can match our quality.
    Keep entertaining City and I hope we win a trophy next season, but . . . I personally pay money to be entertained and by hell I have over these last few years.

    Great season for your too, Dan. You’ve become my #1 City reporter.

    2nd Premiers league place, Top Premier league scorers, Golden Glove for Joe & Golden Boot for Kun. If this is a crap season for the Sky Blues, I pity the Arsenal, United and Liverpool
    In the last four years, City have finished 1st, 2nd, 1st and now 2nd again, three of which we finish above our illustrious neighbours. It must be City’s best ever run of success and I for one applaud it
