Manchester City fans have been known for gallows humour. the infamous "Alan Balls a football genius" at 6-0 down when playing Liverpool, to replying to taunts of "going down going down going down" with "so are we so are we so are we"
The arrival of Shiekh Mansour City fans dared to dream as big money signings came and the club went from mid table in 08-09 to narrowly missing out on a Champions League spot in 09-10. Last season the thing many fans had dreamed of but dared not think could happen did, not only did City win the FA Cup they also finished 3rd in the Premier League ensuring automatic qualification for the Champions League group stages.
The draw could have been kinder but Bayern Munich Villarreal and firstly Napoli face tough games when they arrive at the Etihad Stadium. Just to hear that Champions League Anthem been belted out of the PA at 7:40pm will ensure win lose or draw City are amongst Europe's elite I like many others simply cannot wait!
