9.29 - Super Casual Pellegrini's City were Atrocious

David Mooney tries to keep control of Kieran Clarke and Ciaran Murray as the team discuss Manchester City's victories over Leicester in the Premier League and FC Basel in the Champions League. We're discussion Sergio Aguero's role in the squad and how that's changed under Pep Guardiola, while Raheem Sterling must be feeling positive after setting his critics right with his 20th goal of the campaign. We're looking at how Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan have settled into the team this...


9.28 - Grown a Left Leg

Sam Roscoe presides over the panel of the Daily Mail's Jack Gaughan and ESPN's Jonathan Smith to discuss Manchester City's last seven days. We're taking a look at the major talking points - including Raheem Sterling's open goal miss (and the fall out from it), Ederson's footwork and his ball handling, and the tiredness that seems to be spreading through the team. Tom Green assesses whether Pep Guardiola was right to name just six subs at Burnley or whether he should have given a chance to a...


9.27 - The Last Refuge of a Scoundrel

Sam Roscoe is back to preside over Gaz and Richard Burns from Yahoo Sports, as the panel look back over two routine Manchester City wins. In the week where City's performances have been top notch, it's unfortunate that the officiating and the tough challenges that have been flying in on their players have hit the headlines - we're looking at how there has been a raft more of red-card-worthy tackles that have all been leniently punished. Would VAR have solved the issues? We're looking at...


9.26 - A Weird Portal to Greatness

Manchester City got back on track in the Premier League with a win over Newcastle and they made their first final under Pep Guardiola, too - all in all, not a bad week. David Mooney is joined by Howard Hockin and Richard Burns to chew the fat of the last seven days. In all of the good results, we're asking if there's an issue with the defence after no clean sheets in the last six and none since New Year's Eve, while we're also looking at John Stones after his hit-and-miss performances...


9.25 - Not Too Keen on You

After Manchester City's first defeat of the season, David Mooney is joined in the Blue Moon Podcast studio by City fans Helen Powell and Nic Unsworth to discuss one hell of a weekend. We're looking from back to front at the team in their loss at Liverpool, discussing why so many players had an off-day and just what the Blues have to do to get a win at Anfield. Should John Stones have had a foul for the second goal? Should Ederson have just booted it out of play? What did City's...


9.24 - Alexis Sanchez Transfer Special

David Mooney is joined by Goal's Sam Lee, ESPN's Jonathan Smith, the Manchester Evening News's James Robson and The Sun's Martin Blackburn to look at the latest developments of the Alexis Sanchez transfer to Manchester City. It's understood Arsenal want to sell the player and he'd like to play for Pep Guardiola - but could a disagreement on the price allow Manchester United to steal in? Will City meet Arsenal's demands to stop that happening or are they prepared to walk away? The...


9.23 - Squeezing Orange Peel

A week of cup comebacks is the talking point for Sam Roscoe and his guests Kieran Clarke and ESPN's Jonathan Smith. The team look back at Manchester City's FA Cup victory over Burnley and their EFL Cup success against Bristol City, focusing on how Sergio Aguero has returned to form to impact on the games. We're assessing John Stones's return from injury after he's had an eventful set of matches, while some smooth play from Ilkay Gundogan gets the panel fawning, too. We're discussing...


9.22 - Disaster of All Disasters

David Mooney takes charge of the first show of 2018 and he's joined by Richard Burns from Yahoo Sports and Andy Hampson from the Press Association to look at Manchester City's dip in form… as they drop points for only the second time this season. As well as the games with Crystal Palace and Watford to analyse, the team look at Sergio Aguero's situation at the club and his relationship with Pep Guardiola, while we also assess the impact the return of John Stones had on the defence. David...


9.21 - Glitch in the Matrix

For the last podcast of 2017, the team review Manchester City's wins over Newcastle and Bournemouth. We're looking at how Pep Guardiola has got the side playing so well, with the ability to dig in deep when it's really needed. How much has Nicolas Otamendi improved, in light of his superb goal line clearance at St James' Park, and his superb passing and positional play all season? Are City's players being targeted by thuggish challenges after yet another one was missed by the officials?...


9.20 - So Emotional

It's Christmas! And who'd have thought Manchester City would STILL be on the winning run they are, now up to 16 games in the Premier League. Joining David Mooney in the studio to discuss this week's talking points is Paul Atherton and John Hay. We're analysing how City made Tottenham look like an average team, focusing on the high pressing and the creativity in Pep Guardiola's side. Kevin De Bruyne is coming into his own, while we also look at the impact of Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling....


9.19 - Whodunnit?

Another week, another set of records broken - and Sam Roscoe is joined by the Daily Mail's Jack Gaughan and Goal's Sam Lee to discuss how Manchester City earned the top-flight's best ever winning run.

The panel look at City's ability to break down a team that's parking the bus, which may or may not come in handy this week, along with their vulnerability at set pieces without John Stones in the side. We take a look at City's performance in Ukraine...


9.17 - Cucumber Cool

David Mooney is joined by Manchester City fans Kieran Clarke and Rob Toole to discuss the hot topics of the week. On the agenda is Raheem Sterling's late-goal record this season, questions on how City can break down stubborn defences, and how Pep Guardiola has got the team playing in his style right up until the last kick of the match - as we review the tough 2-1 wins over Huddersfield and Southampton. We're also discussing the manager's 'praise' of Nathan Redmond, Benjamin Mendy's...


9.16 - Early Joker

Sam Roscoe chairs the debate between ESPN's Jonathan Smith and Mail Sport's Jack Gaughan as the pair chew the fat over the last week at Manchester City. Should Vincent Kompany have been sent off at Leicester? How has the last week shown that Raheem Sterling progressed immensely this season? Will City cope without John Stones? Just how hard did Kevin De Bruyne thwack that shot at the King Power? We're here to discuss the talking points. We're looking ahead to the Premier League games with...


9.15 - Thrown to the Wolves

David Mooney is joined by Howard Hockin for this week's Blue Moon Podcast, as we look ahead to Manchester City's trip to Leicester. Who should partner John Stones at centre-back? Is Aguero ready to start after fainting on international duty? How difficult will the tie be after the break and with the Foxes' recent good form? We assess City's recent record at the King Power Stadium and look at how they've been better away to Leicester than at home. We preview the upcoming game with Feyenoord...


9.14 - A Football Paradox

It may be international break, but while Manchester City have a weekend off we do nothing of the sort!

David Mooney puts goalkeeper Ederson under the...


9.13 - Favourite Man on Earth

This week, David Mooney is joined by Richard Burns from Yahoo Sports and City fan John Hay to discuss the last week at Manchester City. We're analysing the performances against West Brom and Napoli, looking at how the team accepting opposition pressure on the ball is creating chances, and we're lavishing praise on the club's defence this season - even if there were a couple of errors this week. We look at Sergio Aguero's record-breaking goal and speak to members of the press to get their...


9.12 - Drink Your Milk, Eat Your Greens

After another record-breaking week, David Mooney is joined by Ciaran Murray and Keiran Clarke to discuss the victories over Burnley and Wolves.

We look at why City were so...
