    Brian Marwood | The Official Man City Podcast

    Brian Marwood | The Official Man City Podcast

    Brian Marwood joins Rob this week to discuss his career in football. They start by talking about the 1988-89 season when Brian was part of Arsenal’s title-winning side that won the old First Division on the last day of the season, beating Liverpool 2-0 at Anfield. It remains one of the most dramatic climaxes to a league season ever. After briefly covering his time in marketing at Nike and as a commentator at Sky Sports, they discuss his role in transforming City post-takeover. Brian was key in signing the likes of Yaya Toure, David Silva and Carlos Tevez, players that turned City into one of English football’s best sides. And now, with his focus on the City Football Group, Brian continues to help push City to the forefront of the game. This one is not to be missed!

    Brian Horton | The Official Man City Podcast

    Brian Horton | The Official Man City Podcast

    In this episode of the Man City podcast, Rob is in conversation with Brian Horton, City manager between 1993-95.
    With Peter Reid sacked after just four games of the 1993-94 season, chairman Peter Swales approached Oxford and asked for permission to speak to Brian. He was installed as manager days later, becoming the last managerial appointment of the Swales era.
    But it was a turbulent period in the Club’s history, with City in a state of civil war as the Swales Out campaign gathered momentum. City’s chairman of 20 years was ousted in February 1994, just six months after Horton came in, replaced by former player Francis Lee.
    Horton kept City in his first season, with the arrivals of Paul Walsh, Uwe Rosler and Peter Beagrie vital, and the following campaign started superbly, with City managing big wins over Everton, West Ham and, most famously, a brilliant Spurs side, playing a vibrant, attacking brand of football.
    But that early promise subsided, giving way for a poor second half of the season, and Horton was sacked by Lee as the campaign came to an end.
    Here, Rob and Brian discuss his time at City, his pursuit of Luis Figo and the bitter nature of his sacking in the summer of 1995.

    Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak | The Official Man City Podcast

    Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak says the lessons learnt from a ‘challenging and unique’ 2019/20 campaign will only make City hungrier for more success going forward. In a wide-ranging season review with Editor-In-Chief Chris Bailey, the chairman reflected on a season unprecedented in terms of the many obstacles it presented. Khaldoon also spoke of his immense pride at Manchester City’s continuing role in aiding efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Dennis Tueart | The Official Man City Podcast

    Dennis Tueart | The Official Man City Podcast

    Rob sits down with Dennis Tueart this week at the City Football Academy to discuss his rich and varied career. Tueart has had three stints at City – two as a player and one as a director – giving him a unique perspective of the Club. He joined from Sunderland in 1974 and went on to win the 1976 League Cup, scoring in the final with a brilliant overhead kick that has gone down as one of the all-time great City goals. He left City in 1978 and joined the New York Cosmos, replacing Pele in a star-studded lineup, before returning to City in 1979. During his time as a director, City enjoyed back-to-back promotions under Joe Royle and after a year spent back in the old First Division, established themselves in the Premier League under the guidance of Kevin Keegan. Tueart, as ever, is frank and open as he discusses his life and times.

    Paul & Joanne Lake | The Official Man City Podcast

    Paul & Joanne Lake | The Official Man City Podcast

    Rob sits down with Paul and Joanne Lake to discuss Paul’s career in the game, his injuries and the treatment he received from the Club’s staff during his lowest moments. The pair talk openly about Paul’s struggles with mental health, as well as the process of writing the bestselling book, “I’m Not Really Here,” which neither expected to be so successful. Paul’s story is unique. He was the captain of City in 1990 and there was talk of him leading England, too. Unfortunately, City’s underinvestment in his rehabilitation process meant he had to retire aged just 27, his potential left totally unfulfilled. Now, for the first time, both Paul and Jo discuss his ‘Life of Two Halves’ in gripping detail.

    Francis Lee | The Official Man City Podcast

    Francis Lee | The Official Man City Podcast

    In this episode, Rob sits down with one of City’s greatest-ever players: Francis Lee. Lee signed for City in 1967, described by Joe Mercer at the time as “the final piece of the jigsaw”. By the end of his first season, City were crowned champions, with Lee scoring 17 league goals. He left in 1974 having added an FA Cup, a League Cup and a European Cup Winners’ Cup to his list of City successes. In total, he scored 148 goals in 330 matches. He retuned to City in 1994, taking over from the much-maligned Peter Swales as chairman of the club. It was turbulent period, though, and having assumed control with City in the Premier League, he left with relegation to third tier almost certain. At his home in Portugal, he opens up about the effect that time had on him and his family in his first in-depth interview since his time as chairman.
