Pep Guardiola and Txiki Begiristain talk to Man City's Rob Pollard about the manager's contract extension. The contract, which now runs to the summer of 2023, sees Guardiola commitment to City extended to seven years from his arrival in 2016. Since joining Manchester City, Pep has had a transformational effect on the Club’s playing style and has guided the team to eight major trophies, setting a series of significant records along the way. In total, the team has won 181 of the 245 matches under his in charge – a win rate of 73.87 percent – winning a piece of silverware every 31 games he has overseen.
Hear from Gabriel Jesus, Pep Guardiola and Rodri as Cel Spellman, Shaun Goater, Richard Dunne and Steven McInerney give their thoughts on Manchester City's draw against Liverpool in the Premier League.
Brian Marwood joins Rob to discuss his career in football. They start by talking about the 1988-89 season when Brian was part of Arsenal’s title-winning side that won the old First Division on the last day of the season, beating Liverpool 2-0 at Anfield. It remains one of the most dramatic climaxes to a league season ever. This one is not to be missed!
Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak says the lessons learnt from a ‘challenging and unique’ 2019/20 campaign will only make City hungrier for more success going forward. In a wide-ranging season review with Editor-In-Chief Chris Bailey, the chairman reflected on a season unprecedented in terms of the many obstacles it presented. Khaldoon also spoke of his immense pride at Manchester City’s continuing role in aiding efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this episode of the Man City podcast, Rob is in conversation with Brian Horton, City manager between 1993-95. With Peter Reid sacked after just four games of the 1993-94 season, chairman Peter Swales approached Oxford and asked for permission to speak to Brian. He was installed as manager days later, becoming the last managerial appointment of the Swales era.
Joe Royle & Andy Morrison both left their marks on Manchester City's history. They sat down with Man City's Head of Written Content, Rob Pollard to discuss back to back promotions from the clubs lowest point in League One to the Premier League. Andy Morrison opens up about his struggles off the pitch and Joe Royle describes the impact of Andy on the entire football club.
In this episode, Rob sits down with one of City’s greatest-ever players: Francis Lee. Lee signed for City in 1967, described by Joe Mercer at the time as “the final piece of the jigsaw”. By the end of his first season, City were crowned champions, with Lee scoring 17 league goals.
Rob sits down with Paul and Joanne Lake to discuss Paul’s career in the game, his injuries and the treatment he received from the Club’s staff during his lowest moments. The pair talk openly about Paul’s struggles with mental health, as well as the process of writing the bestselling book, “I’m Not Really Here,” which neither expected to be so successful. Paul’s story is unique. He was the captain of City in 1990 and there was talk of him leading England, too. Unfortunately, City’s underinvestment in his rehabilitation process meant he had to retire aged just 27, his potential left totally unfulfilled. Now, for the first time, both Paul and Jo discuss his ‘Life of Two Halves’ in gripping detail.
Rob sits down with Dennis Tueart this week at the City Football Academy to discuss his rich and varied career. Tueart has had three stints at City – two as a player and one as a director – giving him a unique perspective of the Club. He joined from Sunderland in 1974 and went on to win the 1976 League Cup, scoring in the final with a brilliant overhead kick that has gone down as one of the all-time great City goals.
