    Has there been anything quite like it as a footballing story?

    The way it twisted and turned; and what an ending!

    As far as Prem titles go, that was probably the best won.... you hear of games being won at the death, but league titles? I can say I hadn't seen anything like it. I've heard the stories of the Arsenal vs Liverpool game in 89' but I would have been a few days short of 1 years old at that point. But to win the title from a losing position with 5 minutes to go?

    Went through every emotion in them 5 minutes. Crazy!

    It wasn't just the finale though. The whole season was electric.

    It may only be a short video but you can pick out God knows how many moments, incidents, goals, matches anything and everything from it.

    Was some season for the Premier League.

    Also, goes to show the fast and furious turnover within the league when you see who was about and playing/managing etc not even 7 years ago.

    Thought it was all over after Balotelli's red card, and Arteta's great goal at the Emirates (fekkin arab ££££££)
    Came out after that game just thinking it was typical of us, the wanker Tarquins taking the piss as we left wasn't pleasant (you'd think they'd hate manyoo?) but that night home to West Brom, coupled with them losing (and dropping points for the first time ever) against Wigan (unless I am messing my games up?) really made me start to believe again.

    What a finale..... I'm sure I aged ten years in that 93 minutes and 20 seconds, but I wouldn't give it up for the world. Amazing.

    I hit a low point around the time of that Emirates defeat. Not just in terms of City, but also more generally. A rare bad patch in my life.

    You've not done too bad since then, Gordon.
    I'm at your Arsenal point at the moment.

    It's a good job City are keeping my pecker up, so to speak haha!

    I remember walking out the Emirates feeling sick after that game! Our odds went up to win the league to 80/1 as well after that game.

    No.

    And I doubt anything we'll ever do will ever top it either. Nothing else since, has ever come close to that season, which culminated in THAT final day... :-)
