Our favourite City-centric findings from across the world wide web...
The rib-tickling and the thought-provoking... The heart-warming and the joyous... What's caught our attention this week?
League Cup Champions!
League Cup winners: 1970, 1976, 2014, 2016, 2018.
Cometh the captain…
I mean, can we talk about THAT Vincent Kompany celebration for a sec?
The absolute outpouring of emotion. The jumps. The run to the fans.
THIS from the very man who lives and breathes Manchester City. The man who has been through so much and has played such a key role in our recent success.
WHAT A MOMENT.
Feel like we’ve seen that celebration before somewhere, you know. Can’t put my finger on it though…
Oh captain, my captain
“Find someone who looks at you like Benjamin Mendy looks at Vincent Kompany.”

Like father, like son…
After helping City to League Cup success at Wembley, Kevin De Bruyne shared this adorable snap of little Mason – his biggest fan – sporting a City kit and cheering on his dad.
All together now… Awwwwwwwwwwwww!
There’s a time and a place, lads! Priorities?!
Always nice to receive messages of congratulations from former players and managers.
Roberto Mancini still holds his former club in high regard…
Congratulations to @ManCity for #CarabaoCup. I’m happy for @aguerosergiokun, @VincentKompany and @21LVA who have already made the history of the #ManCity and keep winning new trophies! pic.twitter.com/mD3KVYZ1Ph— Roberto Mancini (@robymancio) February 25, 2018
Feed the Goat… some birthday cake!
On the subject of former employees, the Goat enjoyed one hell of a birthday!
Phil of the Future
Sunday marked another unforgettable day for Phil Foden.
The Stockport-born City fan stepped out onto the pitch at Wembley as the Blues claimed a fifth League Cup triumph.
It’s really is the stuff of dreams – and it’s richly deserved for the teenager.
Bleacher Report clipped up some of his best moments…
There has been further cause for celebration, as our amputee team clinched the National Amputee Cup! Congratulations to all involved.
Georgia Stanway, she scores when she wants… and the youngster picked the perfect time to net an absolute worldie at the weekend.
With City trailing 2-1 at home to title rivals Chelsea, the 19-year-old was introduced from the bench and made a sensational impact, rifling home a long-range rocket into the top corner to level the score and keep our title hopes alive.
Can’t. Stop. Watching.
Just John Stones and Noel Gallagher, sitting having a chat about music. No big deal.
As part of EA Sports’ Match-ups series, the pair talk Oasis songs in the dressing room and Pep Guardiola’s current favourite tune.
Shoutout to former Club Photographer Sharon Latham, who has been shadowing Noel Gallagher during his tour of the USA.
Danilo has built a snowmaaaan
‘Do you wanna build a snowmaaaan? Come on, let’s go and plaaay…’
I can only imagine that’s how Danilo alerted his family to the fact it was snowing this morning.
Anyway, here is a lovely family snap of him, his wife and his son – and their new friend.
Where are Blossoms?
So, over the last week or so, fans of indie rock five-piece Blossoms (two of which are City fans - Tom Ogden and Joe Donovan), have been speculating on the band’s whereabouts after they announced a new album last summer.
In response, a light-hearted documentary entitled: ‘Where are Blossoms?’ has been created to explain.
As NME’s Nick Reilly explains: “In the short film, it’s claimed that each member has gone off to pursue their own individual passions after the success of their 2016 debut, and there’s some unexpected new ventures in store.
“It’s initially revealed that bassist Charlie Salt now ‘works’ as a mascot for Stockport County FC, while drummer Joe Donovan now runs an ice cream van that chimes out to the sound of their very own ‘Charlemagne’.
“As the documentary progresses, the new occupations become increasingly bizarre – and it culminates in a clip that sees Myles Kellock undertaking an unlikely foray into hip-hop as he records a ‘Fire In The Booth’ session with Radio 1 Xtra’s Charlie Sloth.
“But the clip also teases that a return could be on the horizon, with the date ‘01.03.2018’ briefly flashing on screen at the very end of the documentary.”
