The Boj: The Comeback Is On!
The exciting Valeri Bojinov returned to action in a City shirt last night for the first time since last August's 1-0 derby victory. And guess what? he scored..!
The Feelgood Factor engulfing Eastlands right now has been given a further shot in the arm with this news.
The Boj was given a second half 25 minute run out at Newcastle and netted the equaliser in a 1-1 draw. It's reported that he almost plundered a winner but headed wide.
And the good news doesn't stop there. Our future midfield general Michael Johnson came through a first half run out in the same game. New signing Felipe Caicedo also featured in a side including Isaksson, Jihai, Garrido, Mpenza and Geovanni. All of whom needed full games under their belts.
No doubt Sven and Hans will be thrilled with this news as the squad now take a well earned few days break before beginning preparations for our '12 games of European Destiny.'
For that Holy Grail to be achieved, we need as many options as possible. The pitches becoming easier to play on will also suit our squad's style.
Everton's vist, who will be confronting a very different City side to the one who surrendered so meekly at Goodison last month, can't come quick enough!
