How Manchester City is establishing a new footballing order

For a club that had existed for so long under the shadow of their hitherto more illustrious neighbors, Manchester United, Manchester City have carved a unique niche for themselves with the manner they are dethroning the aristocrats of European football one by one and establishing a new order.

What started like a joke in the quarter-finals when they swept aside Bayern Munich reached another level on Wednesday as they demolished 14-times winners of this competition, Real Madrid in an emphatic fashion.

Never before have we seen the Champions League holders, Real Madrid so overwhelmed, outclassed, outran, out-passed, and out-thought by any team. Pep'a tactical dexterity made Los Blancos look like children as they romp to a 4-0 win on the night, making it 5-1 on aggregate as they will now meet Italian Giant Inter Milan in the final in Istanbul Turkey on June 10.

With the flawless way they executed judgement on Real Madrid, anyone can be tempted to say this is surely Manchester City's and year when they will finally win the biggest club trophy in the game for the first time.

For Pep Guardiola, who has won the competition twice with Barcelona, it's been 12 years of waiting having failed at Bayern and agonizingly close on two occasions with City.
