New official City website is awesome!

I have just got back from the preview of the new official website and I have to say they have done a tremendous job.

I was debating whether to go into detail about the new site or just give you a general idea, I have decided just to give a really brief insight into the features. If I tell you too much I think it would ruin your experience of what is a great site.

City have basically covered everything that the readers of my blog were most concerned about, they have added an academy section which will help us to watch the development of players, you can now look at player stats in depth, the online shop has been improved, MCFCTV has been scrapped and a large selection of video content will be a available on the site free to everyone, there is a live score centre on match days that can be scrolled back to the beginning in case you miss kick off and City have even thought of a good way to bring blogs like my own and the official site together without it being messy.

To be honest City have pulled out all the stops here and have covered pretty much everything that my readers wanted, on top of that there was many many more great features, it is hard to remember them all! The site launches on the 1st of July so make sure you get on and have a look, I will find it unbelievable if you find any kind of problem with it. We will certainly be the best in England when it comes to our website.

All the people involved in the making of the website should take a bow, you have done a fantastic job!

It was also nice to see City really appreciate the fans by inviting me and others alike along to such an event, this kind of relationship with the fans is more than helpful. I really appreciated being taken into account when they were thinking about one of the clubs decisions. It was a good night and a good experience and I also think the people at City who organised it should get alot of credit.

  2. Yes and even better than just commentry, like I said it has a live score centre that gives you the action as it happens. E.G. bookings will be shown by the players name, if you tune into the score centre late you can rewind it back and analyse the action unfold as it happens.

  6. Well I think he said it might be changing but it will direct you to the new one from mcfc.co.uk, don't quote me on that though because the way the night was there was groups of people just conversing and I only overheard that part.
