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?
So far in our list of ten, we've had...
Goal A: Yaya Toure's clinical curler against Viktoria Plzen
Alvaro Negredo sent City on their way to a 9-0 aggregate win over West Ham in the semi-final of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday 8 January.
Just 12 minutes were on the clock when Yaya Toure picked out Alvaro with one of the best passes of the season - a glorious, raking 50 yard ball which took out the entire Irons defence and found City's Spanish hitman.
In the days leading up to the game, Negredo had been compared to Alan Shearer in the English press and he certainly brought the former Newcastle and England man in his pomp to mind with this finish - a thumping first-time volley.
It was the first goal in a hat-trick for the man affectionately nicknamed "The Beast".
Check out Alvaro's humdinger below:
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.
