Changes at all levels at City are creating a huge sense of optimism behind the scenes at the club.
That's the opinion of former Arsenal and England winger Brian Marwood, who took up the post of Football Administration Officer at City earlier this summer.
Fans will see a few changes at the City of Manchester Stadium when the action resumes this month, but Brian reckons that upgrades to the training facilities, new personnel and a new lick of paint at the ground are all adding to the sense of excitement that everyone around the club has right now.
"Everywhere you go at this club, there is change," says Brian. "The Academy, Carrington, the stadium - there is something changing at each one. The feeling I get is there is a real belief here now. We have tended to talk a good game in the past, but now things are actually happening.
"But it’s pointless talking about things unless they do happen. Talk is cheap, and we need to do many things better to improve and I am not going to kid anyone by saying that we are the finished article, because we are not.
"We still have a huge amount of work ahead of us. What I can say is that there are a lot of really good people working hard at this club to make it all work for the benefit of the club.
"Looking at the fans, to have 47,000 here for the last game of the season, against Bolton, when we finished 10th, that is an incredible achievement. The base is here, we just need to make sure we meet the ambitions of everybody concerned".
