Andy Cole: Celebrates his winner against Juventus in 1999

Manchester City on Tuesday reached the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in their history, as we take a look at the other English sides to reach the last four.

City were twice knocked out in the group stage (2011-12, 2012-13) and twice reached the last 16 (2013-14, 2014-15) before progressing to a first quarter-final, where they beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 on aggregate.

    I suspect this CL Semi Final for City will be one of several over the next few seasons.

    Things will obviously get a lot more difficult for City from here with Real already through and you would think both Barca and Bayern joining them.

    But the impossible can happen as Liverpool proved in 2005 and Chelsea proved in 2012.

    I wonder if TT are going to copy the “how far teams could still move in the Premiership table with 5 games to go” article in the Mail…still can’t believe I read all of that.

    I think that article highlights how poor Arsenal have been in the CL under Wenger.

    Sorry,but I don’t get the point of this article. Surely, seen as they’re the only English side left in the CL,priority should be given to City,rather than looking at what’s gone before? Give them their moment in the spotlight

    suarezteeth – its the only way teamtalk can write a champions league article and include the other teams in it. saves them actually talking about city’s success and making it about man u, liverpool and chelsea.

    the coverage towards united and liverpool on this site is getting worse by the day. they are the most supported teams but i’d say 80%+ of the fans on this site dont support them yet the only articles on here are about them.

    Another pointless article from Teamtalk. They seem to find it so hard to be able to write positively about City, and they always make sure they drag the ‘sky 4’ into every article! The site is a sinking ship

    In fairness it is an article that highlights that bar one or two clubs PL clubs have struggled to get to the CL Semi Final stages.

    Hopefully that changes over time and there are a few more PL clubs progressing to the last 4 and beyond.

    Total arse of an article. City fan I ain’t but, to me, this was nothing but a teenage style, ‘Yeah, but..’ instead of at least some well-earned respect for our remaining team in the CL!.. Will the writer also be on here posting similar crap when Leicester (also not my team) take the PL crown, as I’ve started to really hope they do, giving it the same sort of ‘yesteryear’ bull? For sure, those teams lauded above would love to be in (either) City’s shoes right now and NOT sqauwking pityfully and vainly about the past!!!

    ha that would be classic if Leicester won the PL and the first article was …

    LEICESTERS PL RECORD DWARVED BY MANCITY, MANU, CHELSEA, ARSENAL…..

    Totally pointless article – was football invented the day the European cup was reconfigured into a new marketing brand?

    Only relevant or interesting bit is how terribly arsenal have done! It goes to show that it’s not the taking part that counts.

    Ha ha ha…When you think of Liverpool’s European history, to see them dismissed in this way is just hilarious, and more than a little sad.
    It’s true I’m afraid, with age comes the unmistakeable conviction, that the world is full of idiots….Ha ha ha
