Manchester City Rivalry
The blue side of Manchester has no dilemma regarding the biggest rivalry of their beloved club. Manchester City, as things naturally go, nurture the greatest contempt towards their city rivals – Manchester United. Initially forged during the Victorian times, the Manchester derby has never been fiercer than it is today.
With the emergence of Citizens as England’s main force following the 2008 takeover by the City Football Group, the red side of Manchester began to take notice of their ‘noisy neighbours’. It wasn’t long before Pep Guardiola came to guide his team to 100 league points and record-breaking achievements, however, further fuelling the rivalry and taking it to completely new heights. United also remain the club City have the worst record against, even though the overall balance is shifting towards the Citizens as of late.
As far as other rivalries go, Manchester City also have fiercely contested affairs against Liverpool, but also Tottenham. The rivalry between City and Spurs has been a healthy one, with both clubs going through a steady rise in recent rise. After all, both sets of supporters still have great memories of City’s 4-3 FA Cup comeback from 2004.
Manchester City History
The blue club of Manchester was founded in 1880 under the name of St. Mark’s (West Gorton). Seven years later, the club was renamed into Ardwick Association Football Club, while it wasn’t until 1894 that Citizens adopted the name we today know them under.
Manchester City played their home games at Maine Road since 1923 to 2003, when back-to-back champions of England moved to their impressive City of Manchester Stadium. With a capacity of 55,000, the stadium still lacks the atmosphere found elsewhere in the Premier League. City’s supporters gather under the Manchester City F.C. Supporters Club since 2010. Blue Moon is considered to be the club’s unofficial anthem.
Appearing in their traditional sky blue and white colours, City have had a fair share of changes when it comes to their away kit. Unlike with other Premier League powerhouses, the origin of City’s colour of choice is unknown. However, the records do show that the second Manchester-based club have been playing in sky blue since 1892. City’s current badge has been implemented in 2016, whereas the club had the total of three different versions before that.
