5.0 out of 5 stars Trophyless, yet again., 9 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Manchester City: Season Review 2012-2013 [DVD] (DVD)
So, for the 35th time in 37 seasons, city failed to win anything. However, that shouldn't put you off buying this dvd, blues!

For just £12.95, you can reminisce at how this expensively assembled squad of mercenaries embarrassed English football in the Champions League for the second season running. Watch again as city somehow failed to amass one single victory, in a group which contained European powerhouses such as...erm...Ajax.

There's also another opportunity to watch Aston Villa's reserves annihilate city's first team in the League Cup in front of over 25,000 empty seats at Eastlands. Never fear, the crowd that night did still exceed the 3,007 (including away fans) who turned up for a competitive game at Maine Road as recently as 1998. I'm sure you'll agree that that alone is a moral trophy in itself, eh!

If that's not enough for you, you can again relieve how the Premier League's most expensive squad were comprehensively beaten by the likes of Sunderland, Southampton and Everton, and were inexplicably out of the title race by February! February! There are also extended highlights of the Manchester derby at Eastlands, where United played city off the park and beat them in the funniest way imaginable.

Then, of course, we have the season's crowning glory. That's right, city's epic run to the FA Cup final. No 'luck of the draw' for the blues here. city had to overcome the giants of Watford, Leeds United and Barnsley (all at home), before facing a relegated Wigan Athletic team in the final. Alas, it proved to be one hurdle too many for the plucky blues, who were outplayed and beaten in the final by a side who cost less than Gareth Barry. Still, the defeat did spare city the embarrassment of hosting another parade and the prospect of no one turning up for the third year running. Every cloud, eh?!

And there's more! Yep, just when you thought you couldn't take any more heartache and misery, on the same night that over 250,000 reds packed the streets of Manchester to celebrate Manchester's proper club lifting yet another trophy, the city hierarchy were sacking yet another manager! Yes, after having spent £300 million in just over three years and ending his final season without a trophy, Roberto the failure was finally sacked.

Oh yes, it's all here, blues. So tear yourself away from your sister for a moment, comb that moustache, throw on your best Matalan polo shirt and get your copy ordered today!

5.0 out of 5 stars City till I die!, 3 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Manchester City: Season Review 2012-2013 [DVD] (DVD)
2nd in the Premier League for the first time, beating Man Utd at the Old Toilet (sorry meant 'Old Trafford') and getting to the FA Cup final, can't get better than that since we were so poor that season and still managed to do all that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Anti-climax....But good.., 19 July 2013

A typical interview with clubs owners in the 'diplomatic' way....Call me old fashioned, it sounds like a business meeting, not listening to 'fan- like', chairmen of old, who show some emotion !
Action very good but somehow the last few matches of the season spoilt the 'runners up' spot in the league....Especially the dire performance at Wembley v Wigan...No passion, no pride, just pound signs....v Norwich too...Post Mancini....
Player power...No thanks....Mancini and fans deserved more from the players.....from a season ticket holder since 1978...Steve.J.

3.0 out of 5 stars Massive Room for Improvement, 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Manchester City: Season Review 2012-2013 [DVD] (DVD)
In terms of releasing a proper season review, Manchester City still have a long way to go.

Firstly, the basic criteria is to show every goal from every game, including the ones that you lose. Was dissapointed that they just skipped over the loses to Dortmund (0-1) and Sunderland (0-1). Makes them seem like sore losers.

Secondly, professional commentary is always better. The City TV commentators are terrible at best and there needs to be some SKY/ITV/BBC/ESPN commentary. Surely City - the richest club in the land - can afford to pay for this ???

Other areas for improvement - player interviews would be superb, match by match selection (as opposed to month by month) and just all round better editing. It seems the producers wanted to squish the entire season into 90 minutes. So what if it goes over 90 minutes ???

As a collector of season reviews, I always say look at the previous ones released by Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United. They have done it the right way for years.
