This article is about Manchester City players with at least 100 appearances or at least one Player of the Year award. For Manchester City players with between 25 and 99 appearances, see List of Manchester City F.C. players (25–99 appearances). For Manchester City players with fewer than 25 appearances, see List of Manchester City F.C. players (fewer than 25 appearances). For a list of all Manchester City players, major or minor, with a Wikipedia article, see Category:Manchester City F.C. players.
Richard Dunne played for the club for nine years between 2000–2009, making 352 appearances and scoring 7 goals in the opponent's net. He has won the Player of the Year award four times, more than any other player.
Niall Quinn made 244 appearances for the club between 1990 and 1996, scoring a total of 77 goals. He was voted Player of the Year in 1991 and is an inductee of both the National Hall of Fame and the club's own Hall of Fame.

Manchester City Football Club, then known as Ardwick, first entered the Football League in the 1892–83 season. Since that time the club's first team has competed in numerous nationally and internationally organised competitions, and all players who have played in 100 or more such matches are listed below, which encompasses all players who have been inducted into the Manchester City Hall of Fame.[book 1] Also included are all winners of the Player of the Year award which has been awarded annually since 1967 by the Manchester City Official Supporters Club based on a ballot of the supporters.

Alan Oakes holds the record for Manchester City league appearances, having played 565 matches between 1959 and 1976.[1] If all senior competitions are included, Oakes has 680.[2] As of 1 January 2016, the player who has won most[3] international caps while at the club is Joe Hart with 57 for England.[caps 1] Prior to Joe achieving this distinction the record had previously been held for over 40 years by Colin Bell with 48 England appearances between 1968 and 1975.[4]

The Manchester City player who has been capped the most times for England is Frank Lampard who was capped 106 times for England between October 1999 and June 2014, but he only played for City for one season in 2014–15 after he had retired from international duty. The Manchester City player who has been capped the most times internationally is Shay Given who, as of 1 January 2016, has been capped for the Republic of Ireland 131 times since March 1996. He played for the club for two and a half seasons between 2009 and 2011.

The goalscoring record is held by Eric Brook with 177 in total, scored between 1928 and 1939.[5] Brook shares the league goalscoring record with Tommy Johnson; both players having scored 158 league goals.[6] Johnson also holds the record for league goals in a single season, with 38 in 1928–29.[7] This single season tally also means Johnson additionally holds the record for most goals scored per game played in a season, his 38 goals in 39 appearances during 1928–29 yielding a goal scoring rate of 0.97 goals per game.

The player who holds the Premier League record for the most lethal scoring rate (i.e., the highest number of goals scored per total minutes played) while playing for City is Sergio Agüero[8] who, as of 1 January 2016, is still currently playing for the club. During the 2013–14 season he scored 28 goals from 34 game appearances (or 0.82 goals per game), but since many of his appearances were not full 90 minute games, he actually averaged a goal for roughly every 90 minutes he was on the field, which made him not only the most efficient striker (in terms of minutes per goal) of any club in the Premier League that season — but also since the Premier League began.[8]

The following information applies to both of the tables listed in the next section of this article:

Order

  • Players are listed according to the date of their first team debut for the club.

Legend

Nationality

  • Normally the player's country of birth or later adopted nationality. In the case of a country such as Germany that has been unified it will indicate whichever of the prior nations, West or East, determined how that player was capped at international level during his playing career despite his nationality now being simply German.

Club career

  • Club career is defined as the first and last calendar years in which the player appeared for the club in any of the competitions listed below, regardless of how long the player was contracted to the club. For players who had two or more spells at the club, the years for each period are listed separately.

Position

  • Playing positions are listed according to the tactical formations that were employed at the time. Thus the more defensive emphasis in the responsibilities of many of the old forward and midfield positions, and their corresponding name changes, reflects the tactical evolution that occurred in the sport from the late 1960s onwards. The position listed is that in which the player played most frequently for the club.

The following information applies only to the table of "Historic players" listed in the next section:

Appearances and Goals

Statistics sourcing

David Silva has won one FA Cup, one Football League Cup, and two Premier League titles with Manchester City since joining the club in 2010.
  • All of the Player of the Year data in the table is sourced from the history pages of the Happy to be Blue! web site, which lists all award winners up to, and including, season 2011–12.
  • All dates and numbers in the table are sourced from a hardcover book published in 2006 according to the inclusion / exclusion rules stated above. The individual table entries of a number of these players have subsequently been sourced from the web wherever possible.
  • In the case of players whose football careers at Manchester City spanned either of the two world wars, the choice of which appearances, during and either side of the wartime period, are included in the "official" tally of games played may cause discrepancies with other possible sources of similar data for those particular players. Likewise, how competitions such as the Charity Shield, Anglo-Scottish Cup and the Texaco Cup are handled by other sources will also create discrepancies with the numbers included in the table below.

Currency

  • The statistics are correct as of the beginning of 2004.

The following information applies only to the table of "Contemporary players" listed in the next section:

Appearances and Goals

  • Appearances and goals are broken out into four column pairs, with the rightmost column pair depicting the respective totals of the appearances and goals shown in the three leftmost column pairs.
  • The appearances and goals listed under the "League" column pair heading comprise those in the top two tiers of the Football League (including any Football League play-off games) and the Premier League.
  • The appearances and goals listed under the "Cups" column pair heading comprise only those in the FA Cup and Football League Cup.
  • The appearances and goals listed under the "Other" column pair heading comprise those in the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League/UEFA Cup, the FA Community Shield, and the Football League Trophy.
  • Substitute appearances in any of the above included fixtures, and any goals scored as a substitute, are also included.
  • Appearances or goals scored in testimonial matches, exhibition games, or in any abandoned fixtures, are excluded.

Statistics sourcing

  • Most of the Player of the Year data in the following table (and elsewhere in this article) is sourced from the history pages of the Happy to be Blue! web site, which lists all award winners up to, and including, season 2011–12. Winners of the PotY award since 2012 are individually cited from elsewhere on the web.
  • Most of the dates and numbers in the table are sourced from the Soccerbase online database as indicated by the individual cited reference notes for each of the players. The remainder are sourced from Gary James' book.
  • However, Soccerbase has a few issues. It seems to identify all player appearances and goals scored in Community Shield fixtures on an individual season basis, but does not necessarily include all those appearances in the total appearances tally of certain players. Regardless, the core match data on which those tallies are sometimes mis-totalled is quite sound and accessible in alternative ways, and thus can be used to (self-)correct the database's own tallying errors if properly footnoted.
  • Goals later reassigned by the Premier League "Dubious Goals Committee" also tend to get overlooked by Soccerbase. Some goals that have never even come before the DGC have been misattributed to other players despite the rest of the football media correctly attributing them. Whatever the source of the discrepancy it can be addressed by footnote reference to alternative match reports for the games in question - which correctly attribute the dubious goal(s) - and by providing links to documentation of the pertinent DGC reassignment findings elsewhere on the web.

Currency

  • The statistics are correct as of the last match of the 2015 calendar year, which was played on 29 December 2015.

List of players[edit]

The list of Manchester City players with over 100 appearances, or winners of "Player of the Year" award, is presented below in two tables. The first table lists all the club's historic players, providing only the basic "appearances" and "goals" totals for each of them. The second table groups together the club's most recent players, providing a more detailed breakdown of their "appearances" and "goals" statistics (and with the current players highlighted in blue for easy reference).

National Football Museum Hall of Fame[edit]

Former German POW Bernhard Carl "Bert" Trautmann kept goal for the club between 1949 and 1964. Famous for having played through to the end of the 1956 FA Cup final despite sustaining a broken neck, he has now acquired an almost legendary status at the club. This sculpture of him at the Manchester City Museum celebrates his prowess.
Trevor Francis will always be remembered in Britain as the first £1 million player. £1.18m is the actual amount Nottingham Forest paid Birmingham City in 1979. Two years later he moved to Maine Road for an even larger fee, but his time spent wearing sky blue was plagued with injuries and he was sold to Sampdoria by a cash-strapped City at the end of his first season. City fans that saw him play (when not injured) rate his skill and flair as highly as any player that has worn the club's shirt.

Appearances[edit]

  1. ^ a b c d Some well-respected statistics sources include in players' total appearances tallies the three rounds of league games played by Manchester City at the start of the 1939–40 season, before war was declared on 3 September and the football league was officially abandoned. Frank Swift, Eric Brook, Alec Herd and Peter Doherty all played in each of those matches, and when these three fixtures are included in their official appearances tallies they are three games larger than they should be. Because those matches have long been expunged from official league records and these games should similarly not be included in these players' official total games tallies. When these war time fixtures are properly accounted for Swift's total appearances for Manchester City become 375 (not 378), Brook's total appearances for the club become 493 (not 496), Herd's total appearances for the club become 288 (not 291), and Doherty's total appearances for the club become 131 (not 134).
  2. ^ a b Tony Book's total appearances for the club are normally reported as 315 and Tommy Booth's total appearances for the club are normally reported as 491. These discrepancies relative to the M.E.N. sources being used to support the total appearances stats. of these two players are due to the UEFA European Cup Winners Cup tie away leg fixture played against Honved on 21 October 1970. The cited M.E.N. sources for both Book's and Booth's total appearances tallies align themselves with this team selection in which Book plays no part in the match, and his normal right back position is taken by Tommy Booth. However, at this particular time Tommy Booth was suffering from an injury that kept him out of first team action for around 3 months, so this data is believed to be erroneous. Likewise, the main book source for this table reports Book as being in the starting line-up for this game and Booth as taking no part in it. Consequently, this particular table entry has been editorially adjusted to be in alignment with the main book source.
  3. ^ Sometimes this number is reported as 445. The discrepancy lies in the old First Division One league game played at home against Coventry City on 13 December 1975. The cited M.E.N. source for Power's total appearances tally aligns itself with this team selection in which Power plays no part in a match where no substitutes were used. The main book source for this table reports (p. 419) Power as being a substitute who replaced Tommy Booth.
  4. ^ Sometimes this number is reported as 177. The discrepancy lies in the Second Round League Cup tie played away at Barnet on 20 September 1994. The cited M.E.N. source for Rösler's total appearances tally aligns itself with this team selection in which Rösler plays no part in this match. The main book source for this table reports Rösler as being in the starting line-up for this game instead of Foster (p. 457). In this version, Rösler (not Vonk) was substituted off to be replaced by Quinn, while Vonk was substituted off to be replaced by Foster who was not in the starting line-up.
  5. ^ Sometimes this number is reported as 159. The discrepancy lies in the Football League Division One home game played against Fulham on 16 January 2000. The cited Soccerbase source for Tiatto's total appearances tally reports Tiatto as having played no substitute role in this game for which it reports no substitutes were utilised by Manchester City. The main book source used for many of the statistics depicted in this article aligns itself with this team sheet report in which Tiatto replaces Mark Kennedy in the only substitution done by the home team, giving him one additional appearance.
    Also note that the five "other appearances" by Tiatto consist of four appearances in the 2003–04 UEFA Cup competition and one appearance in the 1998–99 Football League Trophy (then known as the Auto Windscreens Shield for sponsorship purposes).
  6. ^ According to the 9 individual seasons (2006–2007 to 2008–2009 and 2010–2011 to 2015–2016) of Soccerbase records listed for Joe Hart's appearances for the club, he has played in 33 UEFA Champions League matches (6, 6, 7, 8, 6 for seasons 2011–2012 through 2015–2016 respectively); 13 Europa League matches (9 in 2010–2011 and 4 in 2011–2012); 9 UEFA Cup matches (all in 2008–2009); and 1 Community Shield final (in 2011). This yields a total of 56 (33+13+9+1) appearances that should be included in his total "Other appearances" tally. As of 1 January 2016 this total (Retrieved 1 January 2016) was erroneously showing as 55, 1 less than the same Soccerbase records indicate on an individual season basis, so it has been editorially adjusted for this article accordingly.
  7. ^ According to the 8 individual seasons (2008–2009 to 2015–2016) of Soccerbase records for Vincent Kompany, he has played in 26 UEFA Champions League matches (6, 6, 4, 7, 3 for seasons 2011–2012 through 2015–2016 respectively); 11 Europa League matches (8 in 2010–2011 and 3 in 2011–2012); 9 UEFA Cup matches (all in 2008–2009); and 2 Community Shield finals (in 2011 and 2012).

Goals[edit]

  1. ^ Some well-respected statistics sources include in players' total goals tallies goals scored in the three rounds of league games played by Manchester City at the start of the 1939–40 season, before war was declared on 3 September and the football league was officially abandoned. Peter Doherty played in all of those matches and scored a goal in each of the first two games, and when these two goals are included in his official goals tally it is two goals larger than it should be. Because those matches have long been expunged from official league records and those goals should similarly not be included in his official total goals tally. When these war time fixtures are properly accounted for Doherty's total goals for Manchester City become 80 (not 82).
  2. ^ a b Sources differ over the scorer of an FA Cup goal against Blackpool in 1966. James and the MCFCstats website credit it to Johnny Crossan, Baskcomb credits it to Glyn Pardoe. The figures in this table assign the goal to Crossan.
  3. ^ a b Sources differ over the scorer of a goal in an Anglo-Scottish Cup tie against Sheffield United played at Maine Road on 9 August 1975. James in his book (p. 515) credits it to Tommy Booth, but the Bluemoon website credits it to Joe Royle. The figures in this table assign the goal to Royle.
  4. ^ The following game recorded by Soccerbase incorrectly credits a goal scored by Richard Dunne to another player: Charlton Athletic 2–2 Manchester City (2 April 2005) – Soccerbase mistakenly identifies the goal scored by Dunne as an own goal by defender Hermann Hreidarsson. This goal was also initially attributed by the majority of the sporting press to Hreidarsson, but it was later reassigned to Dunne by the PL 'Dubious Goals Committee' (see "Comments" at end of the 11v11 match report). This total has been editorially adjusted for this article accordingly.
  5. ^ The following game recorded by Soccerbase incorrectly credits a goal scored by another player to Nicolas Anelka: Fulham 2–2 Manchester City, 20 September 2003 – Soccerbase mistakenly identifies the 46th minute own goal scored by Fulham defender Zat Knight as a goal scored by Nicolas Anelka. This deflected goal was initially attributed by the majority of the sporting press to Anelka, but was later reassigned to be a Knight own goal by the PL 'Dubious Goals Committee' (see "Comments" at end of the 11v11 match report). This total has been editorially adjusted for this article accordingly.
  6. ^ The following game recorded by Soccerbase incorrectly credits a goal scored by Micah Richards to another player: Man City 4–2 Arsenal (12 September 2009) – Soccerbase mistakenly identifies the goal scored by Richards as an own goal by goalkeeper Manuel Almunia. This goal was also initially attributed by the majority of the sporting press to Almunia, but was later reassigned to Richards by the PL 'Dubious Goals Committee' (see "Comments" at end of the 11v11 match report). This total has been editorially adjusted for this article accordingly.
  7. ^ The following game recorded by Soccerbase incorrectly credits a goal scored by another player to Carlos Tevez: Newcastle United 1–3 Manchester City (26 December 2010) – Soccerbase mistakenly identifies the own goal scored by Newcastle defender Fabricio Coloccini as a second goal by Carlos Tevez. This goal was initially attributed by the majority of the sporting press to Tevez, but was reassigned almost five months later to be a Coloccini own goal by the PL 'Dubious Goals Committee' (see "Comments" at end of the 11v11 match report). This total has been editorially adjusted for this article accordingly.
  8. ^ The following games recorded by Soccerbase incorrectly credit goals scored by Yaya Touré to other players:
    (1) West Ham 1–3 Man City (11 December 2010) – Soccerbase mistakenly identifies one of the 2 goals scored by Touré as an own goal by goalkeeper Rob Green.
    (2) Man City 1–2 Everton (20 December 2010) – Soccerbase mistakenly identifies the goal scored by Touré as an own goal by defender Phil Jagielka.
    (3) Man City 4–0 Newcastle (30 March 2013) – Soccerbase mistakenly identifies the goal scored by Touré as an own goal by defender James Perch.
    All three of these goals were initially attributed by the majority of the sporting press as own goals scored by the above mentioned players, but in every case they were later reassigned to Touré by the PL 'Dubious Goals Committee' (see "Comments" at the end of each of the three 11v11 match reports). This total has been editorially adjusted for this article accordingly.
