Erling Haaland is the main interview in today’s FA Cup matchday programme against Newcastle United while there are special tributes to club icons Dennis Tueart and Bernard Halford.

Haaland talks of improving all aspects of his game – even scoring goals! – speaks of his eagerness to win more trophies, discusses how he dealt with a long spell on the sidelines earlier this season and also how he developed such a strong mentality.

Check out his thoughts in full in the Magpies edition of the programme, which is out now ahead of this afternoon’s 17:30 (UK) kick-off.

There is plenty of other content to get your teeth into.

We have a celebratory feature on legend, Tueart.

Tueart, who scored 109 goals in 275 appearances during two spells with City, marked 50 years this week since he joined the club.

As well as looking back at his career in blue, we also delve into the archives to bring you a brilliant front cover of the matchday programme from yesteryear featuring Tueart in very trendy attire.

We also mark five years since the death of much-loved former long-serving club secretary, Halford with a special spread dedicated to him.

By his own admittance, Bernard “ate, slept and breathed” City – in fact, his nickname over the years was indeed ‘Mr Manchester City’.

He was a key figure at the club for more than 40 years and by way of a tribute to Bernard’s enormous contribution, we dedicate two pages to him in this weekend’s matchday programme.

We have a match report from our games against Liverpool and Copenhagen and we have plenty of updates from around the club in our ‘In the City’ feature, including news on our ‘Together: Treble Winners’ and ‘Julian Alvarez: Standing Alone’ documentaries.

We look back at ‘How the Treble Was Won’ as we flashback to our 2022/23 campaign and an emphatic 4-1 home win over Liverpool in the Premier League.

Oscar Bobb and Lewis Miley go ‘Head to Head’ while there are the usual popular features, too, like the manager’s notes, the thoughts of Mike Summerbee in his ‘Buzzword’ column and opposition spotlight to name a few.
