The 2003/04 season was a significant one for Manchester City, marking their second consecutive season in the Premier League after gaining promotion at the end of the 2001/02 season. Here's an overview of Manchester City during the 2003/04 campaign:
Premier League: Manchester City, managed by Kevin Keegan, finished 16th in the Premier League. They faced a challenging season, flirting with the relegation zone at times but ultimately secured their top-flight status for another year.
FA Cup and League Cup: In domestic cup competitions, the team did not make a significant impact. They were knocked out of both the FA Cup and the League Cup in the early rounds, which was a disappointment for the fans hoping for a cup run.
- Nicolas Anelka: The French striker was a key figure for City, finishing as the club’s top scorer that season.
- Shaun Wright-Phillips: A product of City's academy, he had a breakthrough season, showing the form that would eventually earn him an England call-up and a move to Chelsea.
- Sylvain Distin: The strong defender played a crucial role in the heart of City's defense.
Transfers: The club made several new signings to strengthen the squad, including bringing in experienced players like Trevor Sinclair and David Seaman.
Stadium: The 2003/04 season was the first in which Manchester City played their home games at the City of Manchester Stadium, now known as the Etihad Stadium. They had moved from their long-time home, Maine Road, at the end of the previous season. The move to the new stadium was a significant moment in the club's history, signaling a new era and ambitions.
Overall Context: During this period, Manchester City was a club with a rich history but not the financial power they have today. They were yet to undergo the transformation that would come with the takeover by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008. The 2003/04 season is often looked back on as part of the 'pre-takeover' era, a time of more modest expectations compared to the trophy-laden years that would follow in the next decades.
