    Manchester City played their first match at the City of Manchester Stadium 14 years ago today, in a friendly against FC Barcelona. Manchester City won the game 2–1, with Nicolas Anelka scoring the first ever goal in the new stadium.

    Limited capacity of 36k IIRC, and some of us were there a week or two earlier to do test fire evacuations on the upper tiers of the East Stand. Ronaldinho got a rapturous reception as he'd snubbed the rags in the close season - yes it even happened when they weren't 6th!
