2009–10 Manchester City F.C. season

The —11 season is Manchester City Football Club ' s th season of football , its ninth consecutive season in the Premier League , and its 14th season in the Premier League since it was first created with Manchester City as one of its original 22 founding member clubs.
The team finished fifth in the previous season , thereby qualifying for an opportunity to compete in this season's Europa League. The club is managed by Roberto Mancini who was appointed as manager midway through the previous season. Popular City midfielder Stephen Ireland was transferred to Aston Villa as part of a player exchange agreement in the Milner deal. The team began this season's campaign well, collecting four out of a possible six points against "Top 7" opponents Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool , which was three points more than City managed in the comparable fixtures last season.
City then stuttered for a couple of games against Sunderland away and Blackburn Rovers at home , bagging only a single home point out of the six despite completely dominating both games, with according to manager Roberto Mancini at least 25 missed chances in the Blackburn game alone.
City got itself back on a winning track again with a 0—2 away win against Wigan Athletic , which was the first time the team had ever won at the DW Stadium, breaking what some supporters had labelled a jinx for this fixture. After the previous season's run to the semi-final of the League Cup , the team's performance in that competition this season was very disappointing, with the Blues falling at the first hurdle, losing 2—1 to West Bromwich Albion in the third round tie played at The Hawthorns.
The team began its Europa League campaign in much better style, clocking up three back-to-back wins in its first three games. Umbro made a new set of kits for Manchester City whilst they were in their second year of contract with the club.
On 2 February , there was a minor "kit faux pas " when the Manchester City team wore its regular home team kit for its away fixture against Birmingham City at St Andrew's , a fixture that usually required the visiting Manchester City team to use one of its alternative strips in this case, its third team kit since the midnight blue away kit also represented a colour clash  as the primary home team colours of both sides combined a blue shirt with white shorts.
No explanation had ever come as to why this mix-up occurred because as per which kits were to be worn in which fixtures was determined before the season even began , or why the referee, Kevin Friend , allowed two teams so similarly clad onto the pitch rather than insist that one of them first change its kit, although Birmingham's —11 home shirt features large elements of white. Since then, there have been several instances of City wearing sky blue against teams in royal blue.
