'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Vital MC Man Of The Match Awards Update

Our MOTM award for the Villa defeat reflected polls across Planet Blue as City's stand in skipper Micah Richards just pipped the steadily improving Elano to the post to pick up his second recognition on the bounce.

In truth, had Richards not been on the park, we would almost certainly have conceded more goals. Hard to believe that the lad has only just turned 20.


MOTM Aston Villa v City,
Premier League Away fixture:


Richards 38%

Elano 36%

Petrov 5%

Sturridge 5%

Evans 3%

Johnson 3%

Corluka 2%

Garrido 2%

Gelson 2%

Hart 1%

Ben Haim 1%

Etuhu 1%

Ireland 1%


The Story So Far....
(FA Premier League unless stated)


Richards, 2 (UEFA Cup Midtjylland, Q2 H, Aston Villa, A)

Jiminy Cricket. Who's voting for Lightbulb Head on teh left b
Johnny Baguette
See, I'm that shocked I can't type! Who's voting for Lightbulb Head on the left back poll?! Sir Bacon Chops knows a has been offload will delight all rags. I'd rather play Danny Mills out of position and that's saying something.
Johnny Baguette
I see Micah scored for the U21's tonight !!!
alphieblues
He had a good game Alphie, played RB, but he hit the bar with a header, Nedum also hit the woodwork. named man of the match. I hope MH was watching, because I would swap Charlie for Micah.
Buzz Lightyear
Agreed Buzz. And what a good start to the day to see that A*rsehole Whinger is going after Silvestre for Arsenal...!
Johnny Baguette
Yes, strange one that. Shame if we dont get him (cough! splutter!)
oliverblue
Agree with you Oliver, the gooners have some decent left backs, perhaps he needs a benchwarmer. Had a look at all three of the City Lads last night, Onuoha played well but went walkabout on occasions. Richards did the same at Villa. Johnson his form is down to rustiness and started to come into the game more in the second half and then they took him off. The sooner we get Dunney back the better. he will be able to stop MR running off up field.
Buzz Lightyear
Why MH not make Micah play RB, onuoha play CB & Sell Corluka, From money that comes from the deal will buy a player who need for the team .

I see we are no being pursued by Donetsk via FIFA over failed payments on Elano deal. The financial situation at City has clearly been serious since the takeover. Dangerous developments.
Johnny Baguette
Again the media have twisted things round regarding this payment. The facts are that the SELLING club are usually responsible for the payment to the developing club of the player. Donetsk obviously thing it is City's responsibility when in fact it is they who are responsible for this payment
alphieblues
Are we looking at a "Get City" campaign or is the club in financial trouble? There must be hundreds of these deals going on in European Football. So why suddenly a question mark against a deal involving City?
Johnny Baguette
Good grief. Even hairdresser's dream Djibril Cisse turned down an offer from City, preferring Sunderland. Marseille's president even back him up with a no vote for our desperate offer. Sunderland instead of City. Our profile is not good.
Johnny Baguette
thinga are not looking good for us and will probaly be that way for a while by the looks of things who can we sign that will go to us there is not alot of options if u ask me
dunne deal
Are you getting that last January feeling again? Same as me. Nothing doing. No point bringing in foreign imports with no Prem experience but I suppose that's what they will try for to get a staged payment.
Johnny Baguette
All we need to do is turn over FCMatalan. Don't forget it is early days yet, even Spuds got beat and after all thgey money they have shelled out. We have the players to do the job, we just need a few more, but am glad we missed out on Cisse and the Gooners can have Silvestre.
Buzz Lightyear
Jo should be back with the weekend, but definately the Midgetland match. God knows we need him!
oliverblue
The january feeling we have had 2 months to sogn players and we have signed 2 all together and we are owned by a billionaire doesnt feel that way at all we are going into are second season and honestly so we look like a team that can qualify for europe
dunne deal
