The heart-warming and the joyous... What's caught our attention on the world wide web this week?
You may have seen (and if not, where have you been?!) that a certain Mr Sergio Aguero has signed a new deal at the Club, extending his contract to 2021.
As a result, we can look forward to many more years of wonderful performances, stunning goals and magic moments from the Blues’ all-time top goalscorer and the man who netted arguably the most iconic goal in the Club’s history.
Skip to the future
Steph Houghton has viewed a sneak peek of the future – and wow, it’s mind-blowing!
Broadcasting live from their South Manchester office, the City and England captain appeared as a live 3D hologram at Vodafone’s ‘Future Ready’ conference in Newbury to give 11-year-old Lionesses superfan Iris some footballing tips.
It was the first live holographic 5G call between Manchester and Newbury – and it raised some eyebrows. Check it out…
The timing, the nonchalance, the execution, the finish – and the importance.
Two sensational equalisers in two crucial games, scored by two City legends.
Mirrored side-by-side, these two fabulous strikes are quite a sight!
‘Oh Georgia Stanway, she scores when she wants!’
Another cracker to add to the youngster’s collection. She doesn’t score tap-ins, that’s for sure.
Take a look at this worldie strike in the 4-0 triumph over Everton.
Rockets all around!
How about this from Felix Nmecha in the Elite Development Squad’s thrilling 3-2 Premier League 2 victory over Derby?!
A piece of cake
There’s no better way to celebrate a milestone moment than with cake!
In recognition of the ‘Cheetah Cat’s’ achievement, the Scottish midfielder baked this special cake – it looks too good to eat!
Needless to say, FIFA’s ‘The Best’ Football Awards boasted a star-studded guestlist, as you can see below!
Life of Riley
Melbourne City’s Riley McGree was nominated for the beloved Puskas Award that night, for his outrageous ‘scorpion kick’ for the Newcastle Jets.
Now having signed for our Australian counterparts, the Australian bagged his first for the Club with another fine effort. (No scorpions involved this time but still a stinger!)
Phil good factor
The moment we’ve all been waiting for: Phil Foden’s first senior City goal!
An incredible moment for the youngster and the Club – and he celebrated it in style.
Foden produced a Man of the Match display, even without his goal – and this early moment of brilliance capitulated Oxford’s gameplan, according to manager Karl Robinson.
Here's that Phil Foden turn that killed Oxford's plans to press City, according to Karl Robinson. It was 14 seconds in. pic.twitter.com/WlymTrGopc— Sam Lee (@Sammy_Goal) September 26, 2018
New York, New York
Congrats to New York City on securing a MLS Cup Playoff spot with a 2-0 triumph over Chicago Fire.
A fantastic result and top marks for this caption…
Poor Bernardo Silva – he’s forever being taunted by his teammates.
The latest to tease our Portuguese playmaker is joker Kyle Walker, as he scrutinises his colleagues’ clothing styles for Unscriptd.
(There are some very questionable fashion choices to be fair!)
