Sunday’s Premier League fixture at the Etihad against relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town will NOT go down as a classic. It was what happened when referee Mike Dean blew the full time whistle the 54,000 plus inside the stadium, and millions of TV viewers will remember.
Normal circumstances dictate, when compiling match stats here on VMC is, I would award player ratings, out of ten and then, in a few words describe individual performances. However, on this occasion, I remember paying little attention to who was doing what and spent pretty much the whole 90 minutes wishing the game would finish so I could watch the lads receiving the Premier League trophy.
Based on the above I will award the whole team 10 out of 10.
Ian Cheeseman, as usual on match days was out and about talking to special guests, former MCFC players, and Blues.
On this occasion, Ian interviewed Ian Bishop, Shay Given, Ian Brightwell, Peter Barnes, Richard Edghill, Tommy Booth and Andy May.
Those who run the official Manchester City FC social media outlets, including their YouTube channel were, as one would expect busy pushing out loads of material.
Here, I’ve picked out two.
Sheikh Mansour posted the following.
“Never give up.”

The players were also busy on their respective social media accounts.
É ainda mais satisfatório ganhar títulos quando você desfruta da caminhada! Superar obstáculo, reerguer-se, sorrir nas vitórias, e sim, aprender com as derrotas. Esse é o melhor caminho. Graças a Deus sempre por me permitir viver grandes momentos. Premier League 2017/2018???????? #quemdiriahein #debicaspromundo
Celebrations continued into the evening.
