Things we love: Kompany, Villa and Oasis

THINGS WE LOVE: Man Garcia, Vincent Kompany, David Villa and Oasis.

THINGS WE LOVE: Man Garcia, Vincent Kompany, David Villa and Oasis.

With three of our teams in FA Cup action, it’s been a busy week at Manchester City but as always, we’ve kept our eyes peeled for things we love about the beautiful game.

We’ve had plenty to celebrate and there’s been no shortage of gems on the internet, so here’s what caught our eye over the last seven days…

Captain fantastic

…”City love you more than you will know…” are the words sang from the stands for Vincent Kompany.

Well, that love is certainly reciprocated and it was evident from our captain’s passionate display following his goal at Southampton.

A great moment for the fans and the skipper and the goal wasn’t bad either.

The band in Blue

Take yourself back to 1997 for this one.

City unveiled a new badge and Oasis released their third consecutive number one album.

After the global success of their first two Manchester City’s most famous fans were at the centre of the music world as they prepared to unleash Be Here Now.

Promotion was still required, however, which is why this comic was published depicting Noel, Liam and the lads in an Oasis take on their beloved City’s kit.

It certainly did the trick – Be Here Now became the fastest selling album in British chart history and no doubt the Maine Road faithful played a part in this.

Manchester City Women

Where do we begin?

It’s been quite a week for Nick Cushing’s side and they’re most certainly deserving of all the City love.

It began with victory over Liverpool as they booked their spot in their first FA Cup final at Wembley next month and the good news continued with the PFA Team of the Year announcement on Thursday, with no fewer than five Blues selected.

Fruitful loan spells

A must read for any regular browsers of our weekly loan watch, ITV Sport have caught up with Manu Garcia this week.

The Spanish playmaker is one of five City loanees helping NAC Breda in their quest for promotion to the Eredivisie and has impressed since his arrival in January.

The midfielder has starred in the No.10 role and in this interview with Will Unwin he talks playing styles, promotion and future ambitions.

Take a look...

Pick that out

Football can make you feel all kinds of emotions and David Villa makes an appearance this week for giving New York City fans – as well as the rest of us around the world – a feeling of disbelief.

The Spanish great struck from 53.5 yards to net one of the best goals in MLS history and most impressive of all?

He made it look effortless.

Sit back and enjoy…
