During the close season there is often very little to write about football that is worthwhile. Obviously, transfer stories capture the headlines but the majority of football coverage focuses on speculation which quite frankly bores me to tears.
Thankfully the City website has been jam packed with videos of all sorts to keep the City faithful entertained during the baron months. The City website provides a vast array of videos that cast shame on their rivals websites. Though the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have similar sections on their sites, you’ll be hard pressed to find the same level of content in comparison to City.
City offer videos ranging from training, in depth interviews, First Team and Academy match highlights, behind the scenes features to more light-hearted features like #AskSergio in which Sergio Aguero answers fans’ questions from Twitter. Last season City debuted the particularly excellent ‘Inside City’ feature which gave an insight to the working of City on a weekly basis: anything from training to charity work was covered. One episode even featured behind the scenes footage of the promo event for Joleon Lescott’s clothing line.
City’s most recent posts are extensive features of their recent pre-season tour of Austria and current tour of China. I don’t know about you but I would much rather be able to see what is actually going on at City instead of reading the ramblings of some listless journalist from The Daily Mirror speculating about what is going on.
