Matchday Live: Onuoha and Goater reveal best and worst pre-season trainers

Nedum Onuoha and Shaun Goater name and shame the best and worst pre-season trainers they played with in an hilarious clip from Matchday Live.

Ahead of kick-off in our 2-0 victory over Preston, the former City duo were tasked with spilling the beans on which of their teammates would return from the summer break with a spring in their step and who would be seen bringing up the rear in the fitness drills.

Goater was quick to name two of his fellow ex-pros as the ones likely to be leading the way, which meant the honour of digging out those who needed longer to get back into shape fell to Nedum.


And the former City defender didn’t disappoint, even putting on a demonstration of the stiff running styles that would often be on show, much to the delight of presenter Cel Spellman and Shaun!

Matchday Live, a rebranded version of last season’s We’re Not Really Here, gets underway one hour before kick-off for all Men’s matches, providing viewers with City-focused buildup, expert insight and, as can be seen above, plenty of laughs.

It’s available to watch on all digital platforms, and returns at both half-time and following the final whistle, when our special guests will react to the result and Pep Guardiola’s post-match thoughts.


Saturday’s edition, when we welcome Barnsley to the Academy Stadium, begins at 5pm (UK), with Richard Dunne and Michael Brown our special guests.

CITY+ is the only place to follow every kick of the action once it gets underway, with a subscription costing just £1.99 per month, also granting access to full-match replays of all Men's and Women's matches as well as exclusive content.
