The story of the remarkable transformation of Manchester City since 2008 is told in a new Sky Sports Originals documentary by the three players whove been there since the beginning. Following the news that Pep Guardiola is set to start his new job at the Etihad Stadium on July 1, City Slickers takes a look at the remarkable journey the club has been on in the past eight years since the Abu Dhabi United Group took over.Vincent Kompany, Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta are the three longest serving players at the club and spoke in depth about their experiences. I was here first, then Vinny [Kompany] came charging through the door and about two weeks later Zaba [Zabaleta] came, says Hart, who was signed for £600,000 from Shrewsbury Town.I was told they were both central midfielders! Ive seen Zaba age, thats how long weve been together. Zabaleta, Kompany and Hart are the three longest serving players at the club Zabaleta turned down Juventus to come to City in 2008 for £6.5m: It was so strange to go into the dressing room and I couldnt speak a word of English.Kompany was recruited from Bundesliga side Hamburg for £6.7m and straight away he felt the club was going places.He said: Before I signed I got told something big is about to happen and straight away you saw that those guys mean business.Since 2008, owner Sheikh Mansour and his associates have overseen £1billion transformation of the club, building a state of the art football academy and a team full of star names. Pablo Zabaleta speaks to Geoff Shreeves Everyones got their own story, no-ones just turned up for Manchester City, getting paid bundles of money, being bought for bundles of money just by being them, says Hart.Weve all had to go our own different routes, our own little scraps and perform in the right situations. Aguero: I get big-game nerves Sergio Aguero admits he suffers from nerves in the build-up to big games With their financial strength, City found they could compete in the transfer market - but bringing in so many new faces had its difficulties.In my first game I was asking, literally, Michael Johnsons name in the warm up before the game. I just didnt know the names. In the beginning it was about getting the names in and then slowly you could start building a real team, says Kompany.Its been a whole lot of fun looking forward to going in the next day to meet a new super talent, adds Hart.When we do sign players, I think theyre signing players not just because theyre fantastic players. Were signing peoples personalities, people who want to win, people who want to play for their community, play for their club, and thats where were trying to go. Joe Hart in City Slickers In recent years, City have experienced success on the field, notably winning the Premier League in dramatic fashion in 2012 and again two years later. Off the field the club has grown as well, most recently with the completion of a state-of-the-art training facility with the words of owner Sheikh Mansour stencilled on the walls: We are building a structure for the future not just a team of all-stars.Kompany believes City are leading the way for other clubs: The impact weve had on the local community has probably been bigger than any other club in the world and thats something to be proud of. Barnes and Goater Q&A We quiz Liverpool and Man City legends John Barnes and Shaun Goater on the Capital One Cup final. I mean you cant get past the fact that people are going to have opinions about amounts being spent but the reality is that a lot of money has been spent wisely as well.Ill be disappointed if at the end of my career Ive only got two titles to my name. In my head I just want to win everything. Thats what Ive set out to do in football.This journeys been incredible with City but it just has to carry on. We are part of making sure that this club is something that lasts for a long time.City Slickers is on Sky Sports 1 this Sunday February 28, after the Capital One Cup Final, and available On Demand now.

Portugal Jerseys .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche. WASHINGTON -- DeMar DeRozan wouldnt let a little ankle injury keep him from carrying the Toronto Raptors.DeRozan shook it off and scored 40 points, outdueling John Wall in a showcase of All-Star guards as the Raptors beat the winless Washington Wizards 113-103 on Wednesday night. Despite leaving the game briefly to get his ankles re-taped, DeRozan was 14 of 23 from the floor and cracked the 30-point mark for the fourth time in four games to start the season.Hes playing on another level right now, said backcourt mate Kyle Lowry, who scored 18. Hes making my life a lot easier and making I think everybody on our teams life a lot easier. Hes saving possessions, hes creating possessions. Hes creating offense.DeRozan tied Mike James 2005 franchise record with four consecutive 30-point games after previously dropping 40, 32 and 33 in games against Detroit, Cleveland and Denver. He said he didnt care about Sports Illustrated ranking him the 46th-best player in the NBA but tries to improve each night.Im just a student of the game, DeRozan said. I just try and put everything together, be a student of the game while working, always feeling like Im new to the game so I can soak up as much as possible. I try to release it once I get out there on the court.DeRozan released enough that the Raptors (3-1) withstood a dominant performance from Wall, who scored 33 points in 13 of 19 shooting and dished out 11 assists. Otto Porter also shot 11 of 13 and had 23 points for the Wizards (0-3), who committed 21 turnovers that turned into 30 Toronto points.Thats hard to overcome, Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. Theres a few things that we have to correct.A CUT BELOWLowry needed three stitches to close a cut below his right eye. Coach Dwane Casey knnew DeRozans ankle was OK but was concerned because he didnt know how bad Lowrys cut was.dddddddddddde bounced back, Casey said. Hed be probably a pretty good hockey player if thats the case. He came back. I thought that got his attention a little bit to say, `Hey this is for real tonight.BENCH BOSSESWhen DeRozan and Lowry were out early in the second quarter, the Raptors climbed back into the game thanks to a big showing from reserves Terrence Ross, Patrick Patterson and Cory Joseph. Torontos bench combined for 34 points to Washingtons 11.They played great, DeRozan said. They got us the momentum back.MUST-WIN?Center Marcin Gortat called this a must win for the Wizards at the morning shootaround, an ultimatum that didnt make much sense three games into a season.Were all right, were fine, just three games, Wall said. I dont know why he said its a must win. You want to win a home opener, yeah, but its not a must win.TIP-INSRaptors: Toronto has won eight consecutive regular-season meetings and 11 of the past 12. ... DeRozan tied Jose Calderon for the second-most games played in Raptors with his 525th.
