the 1903–1904 Manchester City FA Cup champions.

In the 1930s, Manchester City made it to back-to-back FA Cup finals, losing to Everton in the first one before overcoming Portsmouth to win it in the second.When 84,569 fans filled Maine Road for a sixth-round FA Cup match against Stoke City, the club smashed the record for the largest home attendance of any team in English football history, which stood until 2016.[In spite of leading the competition in goals scored, the club was demoted after winning the First competition championship for the first time in 1937. Twenty Later, in 1955 and 1956, a City squad using the Revie Plan as a guide made it to consecutive FA Cup finals; as in the 1930s, they lost the first one to Newcastle United and won the second. Bert Trautmann, the goalkeeper for Birmingham City, continued to play after unintentionally fracturing his neck in the 1956 final, which the Blues won 3-1.

With a record-low home attendance of 8,015 against Swindon Town in January 1965, the future appeared gloomy for the team after being demoted to the Second Division in 1963. The management duo of Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison was chosen in the summer of 1965. Manchester City made the playoffs and won the Second Division title in the inaugural campaign under Mercer.

This was the club's sole recognition in Europe as of 2022. The Blues became the second English team to win a European medal and a domestic title in the same season when they also won the League Cup that year.

Throughout the 1970s, the team remained a title contender, twice coming only one point behind the league champions and making the 1974 League Cup final. The final game of the 1973–74 season versus archrival Manchester United, which Manchester City needed to win to have any chance of avoiding relegation, is one of the games from this time that Manchester City supporters remember most fondly. Denis Law, a former United player, scored a backheel goal to give City a 1-0 victory at Old Trafford and secure their opponents' relegation. When Newcastle United was defeated 2-1 in the League Cup final in 1976, the club's most prosperous era of the 20th century came to an end.

The prosperity of the 1960s and 1970s was followed by a protracted period of decline. When Malcolm Allison returned to the team in 1979 to take over as manager for a second time, he wasted a lot of money on a number of dud purchases, including Steve Daley. Then came a series of managers—seven in the 1980s alone. Under John Bond, City advanced to the 1981 FA Cup final but fell to Tottenham Hotspur after a replay. The club was twice demoted from the first division in the 1980s (in 1983 and 1987), but Peter Reid's leadership brought them back in 1989 and they finished sixth in 1991 and 1992 This was only a brief respite, though, as Manchester City's fortunes continued to decline after Reid left.

City was a co-founder of the Premier League when it was established in 1992, but after placing ninth in the league's inaugural campaign, they struggled for three years before being demoted in 1996. Following 1. FC Magdeburg of Germany, City reached its lowest position in history after two seasons in the First Division. They were the second ever European trophy winners to be dropped to their country's third-tier league.

After being demoted, the team had off-the-field turmoil, with new chairman David Bernstein enforcing stricter financial management.Under Joe Royle's leadership, City won the Second Division play-off final against Gillingham in dramatic manner to win promotion on the first try. City returned to the top level after earning a second consecutive promotion, however this turned out to be a mistake.

step too far for the club that was recuperating, and City was once again demoted in 2001. When Kevin Keegan took over as manager during the offseason, the team won the First league title in 2001–02, shattering previous records for both points and goals scored in a single campaign. This allowed the club to immediately return to the top league. A 3-1 derby victory over Manchester United during the final season at Maine Road in 2002–03 put an end to a 13–year streak without a derby victory. The UEFA fair play ranking also allowed City to enter European competition for the first time in 25 years.

Manchester City's financial situation was shaky by 2008. The previous year, Thaksin Shinawatra had taken over the club, but due to his political struggles, his assets were frozen.The Abu Dhabi United Group later bought City in August 2008. A flurry of high-profile player bids quickly followed the takeover; the team smashed the British transfer record by signing Brazilian international Robinho from Real Madrid for £23,5 million. Despite the increase in funding, the team's performance did not significantly improve from the previous season, as evidenced by their tenth-place finish. However, they performed well to get to the UEFA Cup quarterfinals. The club spent over £100 million on players such Gareth Barry, Roque Santa Cruz, Kolo Touré, Emmanuel Adebayor, Carlos Tevez, and Joleon Lescott during the summer of 2009, setting a record for transfer spending. Roberto Mancini took over as manager in December 2009, succeeding Mark Hughes, who had been hired not long before the change in ownership but had initially been kept on by the new board. City missed out on a spot in the Champions League after finishing the season in fifth place in the Premier League.
