February sees City's season start to take shape. True, there is a derby defeat - later to be avenged in style - and no sign of the elusive away win, but there is already the whiff of a Cup run at Carrington as Roberto Mancini takes his turn in goal.

The Blues, who remain third in the table, ease past the hapless Greeks of Aris in the Europa League but it is the 5-0 thrashing of Notts County in a fourth-round FA Cup replay that will prove the more significant knockout come May.

Edin and his goal at Aris home game

SWP starts work on the new tennis and football centre at Mcfc with a little help

Hey, none of that cooking mallarkey for Shaun Wright-Phillips, who opts for a quick induction course to work on the new tennis and football centre. Wrighty, when the boss was talking about drilling in a cross, this isn't what he meant ...
