Manchester City sacked manager Peter Reid just four games into the season, and quickly confirmed Brian Horton of Oxford United as his replacement.
City were a competitive, attacking side during Reid's three seasons as manager, when they finished fifth in his first two seasons and ninth in the next campaign. But under Horton, they found it increasingly difficult to find the net - just 36 goals were scored in the league all season, and no player scored more than 6 goals. The mid-season sale of David White to Leeds United robbed them of one of their last quality performers, and his replacement David Rocastle (signed from Leeds in a separate deal) failed to live up to expectations.
Despite their lack of goals, City avoided the drop and finished 16th - their lowest finish since relegation in 1987. Horton sought to reverse this decline by bringing in Nicky Summerbee, Uwe Rösler and Paul Walsh, while David Rocastle moved to Chelsea after less than a year at Maine Road.
Manchester City endured another torrid season in 1994/95, which saw them continue to fall well short of the standards of their city rivals. Their goal scoring rate improving dramatically from 36 to 53, but they slipped one place into 17th - though still enough to achieve survival. But it was too late to save manager Brian Horton's job and he was sacked to make way for Alan Ball of Southampton.
Key striker Niall Quinn recovered from a serious knee injury but failed to make an impact on City's dismal showing, though new German striker Uwe Rösler was among the Premiership's top target men with 15 league goals. His strike partner Paul Walsh was also a frequent goalscorer, with 12 Premiership strikes.
One of the few things that gave City fans something to look forward to was the emergence of exciting young players like Garry Flitcroft, Richard Edghill and Steve Lomas. The close season arrival of Georgian midfielder Georgi Kinkladze was another exciting prospect which suggested that the dark clouds that had recently hung over Maine Road might not have cast too lengthy a shadow.
