City Start The New Season At Home Against Swansea

City Start The New Season At Home Against Swansea

Manchester City begin the 2011/12 Premier League season at home against newly promoted Swansea City.

One has to go back to 8 October 1983 and the old Second Division the last time Swansea travelled to MCFC and Maine Road for a league match. Incidentally the Blues won 2-1.

The season kicks off on Saturday 13 August and finishes on Sunday 13 May 2012 when Queens Park Rangers visit the City of Manchester Stadium.

Season 2011/12 fixture list can be found here.

Have done a bit of research and found out this season will be the first time in SIX years that we've started a season with a home fixture. The "Totally random" fixture computer clearly doesn't like us much, does it?

It wouldn't appear so Fifth considering we're fixed to play away following all 6 of our CL group games. Random my arse!

The six year ready up comes to an end. Has to be said that this represents as promising a run of opening fixtures as we've seen in a long time.
