The Goal of the Season award is up and running.
But with more than 150 goals to choose from, who made the short-list for the 2013/14 award?
Goal A was Yaya Toure's clinical curler against Viktoria Plzen, while Sergio Aguero's exquisite finish against United in September's Manchester Derby was selected as Goal B.
Next up on our list of tasty ten is Alvaro Negredo's strike as part of the 6-0 rout of Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium. The Spanish striker made an almost immediate impact on arrival in Manchester, and collected September's Etihad Player of the month award to kick off a debut campaign in which he plundered a total of 23 goals.
But his strike against Spurs, in a month when the Blues found the net 22 times in five matches, was one of his best. Negredo received the ball on the half turn, and flicked it round the despairing defender before launching an unstoppable shot into the corner of the net. Stunning!
Watch and enjoy...
There will be one goal per day featuring the 10 best strikes of the season and we will then have a recap of the full 10 in one video before voting opens for one week. The winner will be revealed at City Live 2014.
Voting begins 30 June on mcfc.co.uk.
City Live - details and ticket information
The inaugural Club awards and music party was held last August and was the perfect start to what would prove to be a title-winning campaign and City Live 2014 is set to be even bigger and better.
Packed with special guests from the world of sport, music and entertainment, City hope to build on the success of last year’s event, that saw a live audience of 5,000 Blues fans treated to a night of comedy from funny man and lifelong supporter Jason Manford, plus music from chart sensation, Miles Kane.
The blue carpet will be well and truly rolled out on 14 August, when City Live once again takes centre stage at the iconic Manchester Central, in the heart of the city.
Gongs up for grabs include Etihad Player of the Year in association with MCFC Supporters Club (1894), Under-21 Player of the Year, and Goal of the Season.
It will also be the first chance for fans to get up close and personal with their heroes, too, when new Club signings will be presented to the City faithful.
Inspired by shows such as the MTV Music Awards, City Live 2014 will showcase what’s in store for the 2014/15 season, both on and off the pitch, whilst connecting local and global fans like never before.
City has once again enlisted the support of lifelong Blue and funny man, Jason Manford, who will host and compere the evening with his no holds barred approach.
