City 1 Everton 1
August notes
I was hoping we would have scored more goals in the opening three games and been a bit more fortunate with refereeing decisions but at least we have only dropped two points so far. Our finishing must certainly improve if we are to take advantage of our possession rate. It is no use getting 70-80 percent possession and then failing to put the ball into the back of the net. I feel we tend to play at the same pace too often and defences are able to organize themselves better in the final third.
Variation of approach play and better crossing from the wings is essential.
The failure to sign Sanchez and Evans was disappointing but the decision to end the transfer just prior to an international weekend was crazy to say the least.
There were five major first team signings - Benardo Silva from Monaco - Mendy also from Monaco - Ederson from Benfica - Danilo from Real Madrid and Walker from Spurs.
Other signings were Garcia from Barcelona, Luka and Ivan Iilic from Red Star Belgrade and Luiz from Vasco das Gama.
departures include Caballero, Clichy, Kolarov, Iheanacho, Navas, Nolito, Bony, Zabaleta, Mooy, and Joe Hart on loan to West Ham.

September Notes
The results and performances against Liverpool and Feyenoord were excellent. Plenty of goals some from distance and even some from corners! Nice to see a varied approach to corners and we also had players shooting from distance and our new wing fullback Mendy put in lots of instant crosses. Kevin De Bruyne is doing a fine job in midfield as is David Silva and Aguero and Jesus are working well together up front.
In defence Stones has improved and our new keeper Ederson has shown us what a good keeper he is and a good team man by turning out in Rotterdam after being injured against Liverpool.
City's magic form continued at Watford with the six nil away win which put them top of the league. A wonderful Aguero hat-trick was the highlight but don't forget the terrific work by David Silva and De Bruyne. Would there be room in the team if we had signed Sanchez from Arsenal. With Benardo Silva and Sane on the bench and also Danilo and Gundogan in waiting as well as a player called Yaya Toure who has yet to figure this season City are in a strong position to win a few trophies this season.
Aguero is only a hat-trick away from beating Eric Brook's record of 177 goals for City. I would not be surprised if Sergio got the record against Crystal Palace who are suffering at the moment.
However Aguero only managed one in the 5-0 win against Crystal Palace and then missed a penalty against Shakhtar in the Champions League. He then got injured while in Holland and will be out for several weeks so breaking the record is going to be delayed for a while!
We did see some cracking goals recently - Delph scored an excellent goal against Crystal Palace and Kevin De Bruyne notched his first of the season against Shakhtar and then scored a wonderful effort to win the away match against Chelsea. It was a shame that City only scored one against Chelsea as the sky blues dominated the game they keep their place at the top of the league. Delph - standing in for the injured Mendy - is doing a good job and surprising a lot of City fans. One of the major stars for me is Ederson in goal. His speed ,decision making and wonderful distribution is giving the defence a big lift.
