Manchester City reached the 1000 goal mark in the game against West Bromwich Albion last weekend.

As Fernando slotted home to score our third goal in the game, it was City’s 1000 strike in the Premier League.

It has taken a total of 18 seasons to get to the four figure mark, 12 to reach the 500 mark and then less than 6 years to double that, so that in itself shows the improvement at the club over the years.

The Official Site have picked out some of the best from that 1000 and you can read their selections on that link.

The shots chosen by them, include David White (remember him) from way back in a game against Queens Park Rangers in 1992, as he bagged our first goal in the newly formed Premier League in what was Sky Sports maiden Monday night football encounter.

Our first penalty fell to Keith Curle back in 1992 against Coventry City, an it was one of only two penalties we converted that season.

Our 100th strike fell to Paul Walsh (he also grabbed the 99th) in the space of three minutes as we hammered Everton four nil at Maine Road back in 1994.

Our last Maine Road goal came in the 2003 victory over Sunderland and was bagged by Marc Vivien Foe. Meaning our first City of Manchester Stadium goal came via David Sommeil in 2003 against Portsmouth.

The 500th record went to Shaun Wright-Phillips in 2008’s tie against Portsmouth in new chairman’s Khaldoon Al Mubarak in his first visit to watch the side back then. We won 6-0.

Meaning Fernando takes the 1000th plaudits.

How quick to 1500 now?
