    I think it was the semifinal win too.

    The pisscan and his mob of cheats and scumbags went into the game as favourites, but after the first 15-20 minutes, Bobby told Vinnie and Joleon to push another 10-15 metres further forward and we controlled the match thereafter.

    Unfortunately, we couldn’t get tickets for the final and I had to wait another eight years before I could be at Wembley to witness City win the FA Cup, but there’s no doubt in my mind that the semifinal in 2011 was the turning point.

    However, I agree with @7evens that the picture in his OP was an iconic moment in the rise and rise of Manchester City. It was probably the first time anyone had stood up to the purple-nosed twat and he didn’t like it.

    We had a perfect view of it from our seats in 328 and loved every second of it.

    Watched the game in a bar in Spain , a solitary City fan ,rammed full of rags from Sweden and London and anywhere but Manchester ( obviously ) .

    The wheel was turning big style that day, and I loved it , fucking loved it ( acknowledgement yo Kevin Keegan ).

    The best deadline day ever. I said to Mrs Vienna before the transfer was confirmed, even if we don’t sign anybody, it will be one of the greatest days following City I have had.

    I’d have Sir Joe above Bobby.

    And, as much as he didn’t realise it at the time, the pisscan's "Noisy Neighbours" comment helped make it the talking point it became.

    That is the most beautiful piece of music I have watched in a long time. A real up yours to years of lording it up to us and taking the p!ss out of us. To use the song that they twisted to put us down, reclaim it and shove it up their ar@es is karma.

    The appointment of Eriksson marked the start of something very special. Didn't he give us the double over Manure?
