The rib-tickling and the thought-provoking... What's caught our attention on the world wide web this week?

In our latest edition of Things We Love, Club Journalist Caroline Oatway rounds up the best of the internet’s offerings from the past seven days…

The Circle of Life

Music videos replacing lyrics with names are all the rage on social media at the moment.

This one featuring footballers and the must-sing-along tune from the Lion King – the Circle of Life – is positively genius and had the City content team in hysterics.

Needless to say, it took a while to get it out of our heads! Enjoy…


They’re becoming a regular inclusion in this feature, but we’re all fans of Borussia Monchengladbach’s Twitter account.

We shared their teasing of the pub which gave up trying to spell their name, instead opting for ‘A German Team’ a few weeks ago – and it seems the footballing world loved it as much as we did. There was even demand for a limited edition scarf!

The Big Interview

It goes without saying: Pablo Zabaleta is a City legend. Hard-working, dedicated and passionate, he absolutely epitomises the Club and will go down in the history books as the first ‘adopted Mancunian’ Argentine.

Graham Hunter first interviewed ZabMan back in 2008. As he explains, a lot has happened since then!

Eight years and more than 300 appearances on, Hunter sat down with Pablo again for his podcast.

This in-depth conversation mustn’t be missed, as the defender opens up about his role in the Under-20 World Cup, Leo Messi and the ‘golden generation’, former teammate Dani Jarque who sadly passed away in 2009, the right-back role, Pep Guardiola and of course, THAT game against QPR in 2012.

Tune in here.

Sterling work

Raheem Sterling’s displays have been one of the talking points of City’s season so far.

Inspired under Pep Guardiola’s leadership, the winger has played a key role for the Blues and he has opened up about the impact his new manager has made – and how…

Worth a watch!

Rock ‘n’ Roll Star

City’s Champions League clash against Barcelona saw the launch of our new ‘Playlist’ feature, in which fans and famous faces select their favourite tunes to build-up to matchday.

On Tuesday, it was the turn of former Oasis and Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher – and he picked some absolute belters.

It clearly had a positive effect… maybe we should play it before every game!

This playlist is also available on Spotify. Have a listen here.

A piece of art

No words needed. This is simply beautiful from Manchester artist, Amanda McCrann.

That awkward moment...

So, ahead of this weekend’s visit of Middlesbrough, we decided to have a little fun on Twitter with our #ThrowbackThursday…

Only, not everyone got the joke…

There was no way we were gonna let them get away with that. Cue this…
