Bert Trautmann 1923 - 2013


Former Manchester City goalkeeper Bert Trautmann, who played on in the 1956 FA Cup final despite breaking his neck, has died at the age of 89.

The German made 545 appearances for City between 1949 and 1964, winning the FA Cup and the Footballer of the Year award in 1956. He is regarded as one of City's greatest ever and most popular players.

But he had arrived in England as a prisoner of war and 20,000 people protested at City's decision to sign a soldier who had fought against the Allies.

President of the German FA Wolfgang Niersbach said: "Bert Trautmann was an outstanding sportsman and a true gentleman. He came to England as a soldier and therefore a wartime enemy and he became a celebrated hero.

"During his lifetime he already was a legend. His extraordinary career will remain in the history books forever."

Trautmann went on to become the first foreigner to win the Footballer of the Year award and received the OBE for helping improve Anglo-German relations.

Trautmann, a paratrooper in the Luftwaffe, won the Iron Cross for his bravery on the Eastern Front before being captured by the British on the Western Front and being imprisoned in Lancashire, where he was noticed for his footballing ability.

After his release, he opted against returning to his native Bremen and played for St Helens Town before joining City and, despite the controversy about his recruitment, establishing himself as their first-choice goalkeeper.

Trautmann helped City win promotion to the old Division One, reach the 1955 FA Cup final and, despite breaking his neck in a challenge with Birmingham's Peter Murphy, win it the following year, when he played the full 90 minutes in a 3-1 victory at Wembley.

By the time he left Maine Road in 1964, he had made a record number of appearances for City and since then, only Alan Oakes, Joe Corrigan and Mike Doyle have represented the club more often.

As Germany had a policy of only selecting players who played in their homeland, Trautmann did not feature in international football even though he was seen as one of the outstanding goalkeepers of his generation.

But he went on to manage Burman, Tanzania, Liberia and Pakistan before retiring in Spain.

The new boss Manuel Pellegrini

Manuel Luis Pellegrini Ripamonti (born 16 September 1953) is a Chilean football manager and former footballer, who is the current manager of English Premier League side Manchester City. As a coach, he has managed teams mostly in Spain, Argentina and Chile. A qualified civil engineer and a competent footballer, after retiring as a player, he moved into coaching in his native Chile and subsequently Argentina. Pellegrini moved to Europe in 2004 to take the manager's post at Villarreal, a small club near Valencia with little notable history to speak of.

Under Pellegrini, Villarreal quickly gained the nickname of the "yellow submarine" due to their yellow kits but also their low profile compared with Barcelona and Real Madrid. He achieved a third place finish in 2004–05 La Liga, a Champions League's semi-final in 2005–06 and broke the big two in 2008 by securing a second place finish in La Liga in 2007–08.

Pellegrini's consistent record at Villarreal attracted the attention of Real Madrid and was appointed manager in 2009. He amassed a total of 96 points, a then club record until it was surpassed by Mourinho in the 2011-1012 season, at Real Madrid, but lost the title to Barcelona by 3 points. He was dismissed after one season and later lamented the Galácticos policy employed at Real which prevented him from building a balanced team. Pellegrini later took up the manager's role at Málaga in November 2010.

Pellegrini led Málaga to a fourth place finish in his first full season and Champions League football. He made it to the quarter-finals of the 2012–13 Champions League, becoming the only coach to take two different teams to the Champions League quarter-finals in their debut seasons in the competition. On 22 May 2013, Pellegrini confirmed he would leave Málaga at the end of the 2012–13 La Liga season. On 14 June 2013 he was appointed manager of Manchester City on a three year contract.

Pablo Zabaleta MCFC Player of the Year 2013/14.

Pablo Zabaleta has been voted the Etihad Manchester City FC Player of the Year for 2013/14.

‘Zaba’, who joined the Blues from Espanyol in 2008, received 68% of the votes polled by official supporters’ clubs and fans online after a superb season during which he clocked up 42 appearances and scored three goals.

Pablo also wore the captain’s armband on numerous occasions in Vincent Kompany’s absence and also won successive Etihad Player of the Month awards for January and February.

Never afraid to put his body on the line, his numerous gashes, bumps and scrapes have endeared him to City fans for whom he has become a cult hero over the past few years.

Pablo said: “I would like to say thank you to all the City fans who voted for me. This is a great personal honour and sits alongside winning the Premier League title, captaining City and playing for my country.
