A must for any City fan, but...
on 16 June 2011
What a great season for City, but this is not a review of the season; it's a review of this disappointing DVD.
Sure, you get all the goals, including the FA Cup, but you have to squint to see them at times. In a world of high-definition and 3D television, it's not acceptable to take match footage that looks like it was shot on a cine camera and slap it on to a DVD. This disc has all the hallmarks of a real rush job. Not only is the quality of the footage questionable, but some of the final scores on the titles are wrong. Yes, wrong. Nor is there any real sense of progression. A football season is a story that unfolds over 10 months, with setbacks and triumphs jostling for supremacy. Here, you get no idea of what the league position was at the time of a game, or what the context of an individual game was. Come on, we just won our first trophy for 35 years and made it into the Champions League. Tell us the story.
Some of the behind the scenes extras (mostly lifted from mcfc.co.uk) are fairly amusing, if you like gurning kit men, but as a whole this DVD feels hurried and badly thought out. A black mark for a media team at City that has put a lot of hard work in this year. Oh, and Endemol (main credited producers), you should be ashamed of yourselves.
