The 2011/12 season was perhaps the most dramatic in Premier League history. There were many challengers for the championship, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal all had strong squads and the desire to win, but each crumbled under the pressure. Only the two Manchester clubs showed the strength and resilience needed to take the title race down to the wire. With both teams locked on 89 points, goal difference would prove the crucial deciding factor. Manchester United, the most decorated club in English football, have overcome many challengers to their throne. Their manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has been forced to rebuild the squad countless times, losing legendary players like David Beckham and Ruud van Nistelrooy to greed, injury, age or ill-discipline. However, every difficult transition has been followed by unrivalled success. Now, this great club faces their greatest challenge, Manchester City. After 44 years living in the shadow of their superior city rivals, the blue half of Manchester has finally tasted success. Under the expert guidance of their manager, Roberto Mancini, Manchester City have become only the fifth club to win the Premier League title. A turbulent season culminated in a dramatic final day showdown on Sunday 13th May 2012, with Manchester City snatching the title from their city rivals with an astonishing last-minute goal against QPR, scored by their star striker, Sergio Agüero. Will Manchester City capitalise on their success and succeed where Arsenal, Chelsea and Blackburn Rovers have failed? Only time will tell, but few would bet against them. This exclusive documentary follows the historic events as they unfold; leading up to the nail-biting finale that turned the streets of Manchester blue. Watch as thousands of fans salute their heroes in an open-top bus parade through the city, and witness as dreams come true.
