Lucky to Get Nil : Pre-Season Post Season Review 2013/2014

 LUCKY TO GET NIL: PRE-SEASON POST-SEASON REVIEW 13/14

Negredo In MudHere at LTGN, we aim to give you the most up to date City news and reviews, and so in time-honoured fashion (if you remember the match reports of the title-winning season) what follows is our review of this season before it has even happened yet.

Manuel Pellegrini’s first season at the Etihad Road helm can certainly be viewed positively: the team having recaptured the Premier League title, made the last eight of the Champions League and lost out to a disputed Grant Holt goal in a reprise of the previous year’s FA Cup final against Wigan.

Lucky To Get Nil: EXCLUSIVE: Round Mario's House

 

LTGN followers of a certain vintage may remember last year's Round Carlos' House series, in which the diminutive Argentinian striker was subjected to a Through The Keyhole style forensic examination of his domestic trials and tribulations.

So, with a sense of now-or-never, LTGN girded its loins and decided to pay a visit to Chez Balotelli - before it became too late.

Lucky To Get Nil: EXCLUSIVE: Turnips Back In Season

 

Anybody angry yet? 
 

Don't want to say I told you so, but I told you so.

 

This column was roundly derided during pre-season for its criticism of the management's (and here I include everybody, right to the top) inability to strengthen from last season's position of dominance and push on for the 12/13 season. As the club signed a welter of no-hopers and failed to sign the people we really needed to build on the legacy we had begun to create, this column was a lone voice in the wilderness.

Lucky To Get Nil: EXCLUSIVE: Why The Reading Game Was Our Best Performance Of The Season


Those who trudged out of Etihad Road on 90 minutes, and away into the sideways rain and Christmas traffic, missed a moment of great import.

For this victory, more than any other this season, represented a zenith of performance not seen in the previous 17. Here are three reasons why:
