As at the time we putting together this article, Man City sit at the top of the Premier League having won a staggering 16 matches in a row. Pep Guardiola’s team have put aside every team that has tried to stop them, and how.

Surely the Pep side have also managed to book their place in the league cup semi-finals and the Champions League knockout stage.

However, things were not as rosy as it seems now before they were taken over by Sheikh Mansour. Before the cash injection, Manchester City belonged to the lower echelons of the Premier League, flirting with occasional relegations to being mid-table quality at best.

First of all, It definitely was the last day of the 2004/05 Premier League season, Stuart Pearce, the then manager of the Citizens, made the head-scratching decision of playing goalkeeper David James up front.

And of course the City were facing Middlesbrough and needed a win that day to qualify for the Uefa Cup ahead of their opponents on the day. With two minutes of normal time remaining, Pearce did the unthinkable in a bid to unsettle their opponents.

And the manager switched midfielder Claudio Reyna for goalkeeper Nicky Weaver and ordered James to play upfront, despite having a decent forward Jon Macken on the bench. After that what took place was pure comedy.

To add to that, also know that James actually made a couple of horrendous challenges inside the penalty box as he made a complete nuisance of himself. Things got dramatic for the Citizens as Borough defender Frank Queudrue handled the ball inside the penalty area, resulting in a penalty for City.
