City v Newcastle: Opening Day Game Thread

Kickoff time... finally!

Clive Brunskill

Fellow Blues, the time is finally here. Time for our beloved City to take the pitch once again in search of the Premier League title. Time for our new signings to make their mark. Time for Edin Dzeko to prove (half of) us wrong. Time for Manuel Pellegrini to show us what he's got!

On to the lineups then:

Bit of a surprise to see Aguero starting given that he didn't play a minute in preseason, but according to Pellegrini he is ready to go. Wouldn't be surprised to see Nasri, Milner, or maybe even Negredo come on for him around '60 or so. Stevan Jovetic is strangely not on the bench. Otherwise, the lineup is pretty much as expected.

Final score predictions? Who will get the season's first goal for City? Comment away...
