Champions League - our first game

The Champions League has finally arrived at the Etihad Stadium and we start with what will be a very enjoyable game. We start our campaign against Napoli in the prestigious competition and no doubt fans, players and manager will be hoping for a home win.

For manager Mancini, it is not only special because of Manchester City's UCL debut, but because his biggest critic - his father, will be in the stands for the first time tonight.

Mancini said before the game "It's an exciting day for the club because to play in the Champions League after many years is a very important and special day, Napoli are a good team and did very well in the Italian championship"

International Duty: How have our players done this weekend?

Well, I think it's quite apt to start with England, considering we had 6 players picked for the squad for the 2 matches this week. Joe Hart and Gareth Barry started for England last night in a side which beat Bulgaria 3-0. James Milner and Adam Johnson also made appearances from the bench.

Hart was a spectator for most of the match, but made a good reaction save in the second half, as well as misjudging a cross. Good performance on an unpredictable pitch.
Barry continued his impressive start to the season and even grabbed an assist for the first goal.
Milner and Johnson were both late substitutes and didn't really have enough time to show their worth. Milner did prove his versatility by slotting into a more central attacking midfield role though.
