Match Highlights View More Below

City ended the first Sunday of the new season where they were on the last Sunday of the old one – top of the league.

A familiar 2-0 win at Newcastle was gained with the minimum of fuss thanks to a goal in each half.

Rehearsals complete, understudies prepped, new cast members welcomed, familiar faces given new contracts all that remained was the smell of the vanishing spray (liniment is so old school) and the roar of the crowd!

Opening day nerves are not something that one associates with City who have treated the draft created by the curtain going up as a wind beneath their wings previously winning four times in five first day outings and drawing the other.
