Fantastic.

There are some old school Man City fans that still get excited whenever the team reach the magical 40 point mark in the league, a decade of relegation scraps has probably left them with some Vietnam War-esque flashbacks, but those days are a thing of the past.

Ever since the Abu Dhabi United Group took over the club in 2008, Man City's fortunes and status in world football has absolutely skyrocketed.

Under the stewardship of chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak, the club have won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and League Cup but most importantly, City have splashed the cash to bring in some wonderful footballers.

Money isn't an issue at the City of Manchester Stadium with players Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Yaya Toure and many more all joining the club in recent years.

As many football fans have remarked, being the Man City manager must be like those moments when you're cheating at Football Manager, such is the endless amount of financial power that the club have.

This being said, Steve Howey's prediction about Man City's first starting XI with Pep Guardiola in charge should give you a laugh.

Steve was a little bit optimistic when he made this prediction in February and it's doing the rounds on Twitter today.
