we came to EASTLANDS from MAINE ROAD

In 2010, I predicted that the official name of the City of Manchester Stadium would be changed through sponsorship to the 'ETIHAD STADIUM' and a Ten year deal was signed with the airline in July 2011

But much of the media and press still refer to the ground in their reports as 'EASTLANDS'

See below what they are saying recently:.

Manchester Evening News 28/09/16 The Hoops have a number of players with a point to prove, too, with an in-form Scott Sinclair never breaking through at City and Patrick Roberts hoping to show why he's good enough to come back to EASTLANDS. City, with a top of the table clash against Spurs to come, need to take care of business and will have to prove that they can win games without star player Kevin De Bruyne.
Daily Star 16/09/16 In a word, garlic. Yep, seriously… It’s all because of parasites – as garlic is an answer to the pests infecting the grass and damaging the roots. Jackson’s bizarre methods have clearly worked though – as the EASTLANDS turf is kept in quality condition all year round.
BT Sports 15/09/16 With seven wins from seven under new boss Guardiola it has been a highly impressive start to the campaign by all at EASTLANDS , and not just Aguero. Summer signing Gundogan was the latest to catch the eye as he made a belated first appearance following a knee injury.

With seven wins from seven under new boss Guardiola it has been a highly impressive start to the campaign by all at EASTLANDS, and not just Aguero.

Football Talk 10/08/16 His record at City is clearly a concern but in fairness Bony has been given limited chances to establish himself as he’s always played second fiddle to Sergio Aguero, so I wouldn’t use his time at EASTLANDS against him too much.

Sane, who has signed a five-year contract with City, cited the Catalan’s appointment at EASTLANDS as one of the key factors in persuading him to join the four-time champions of England.

Perhaps most gallingly for City's Abu Dhabi owners, the encounter will take place with PSG having been jet-propelled ahead of them by Qatari backers, whose motivation to succeed will have been fuelled by the perennial battle between the two tiny Gulf states to outdo each other.
