Vital MC Man Of The Match Awards Update

Okay. Let's get this one out of the way. Stephen Ireland and his bandaged leg showed the way again for a City side thinking all they had to do was turn up at Brighton...

A shocking result of course, but Sheikh Mansour is now at least familiar with our annual League Cup tradition.

Many of the players Bluesy brought in last night have done themselves no favours whatsoever.

It's also noticeable that Kasper Schmeichel's Dad and the obsessed Chelski and rags fans have been on Vital MC voting again...

I listened to the Andy Hinchcliffe commentary on The abiding memories I have is of City creating loads of chances but needing Gelson Fernandes to kick the ball against a defender to score. I will vote for Ireland because he at least seemed to keep trying and never gave up. I think Stevie as well as everyone else involved will want to forget this game as soon as possible. Except of couse Brighton. They deserve congratulations and it says a lot about them that they stuck at it, brought the game level and won by penalties. Well done Brighton.

Full focus on The Pie Tasters tomorrow. They'll be chuffed with their emphatic victory over the Carrot Crunchers. I'd like to see Petrov back and firing, but SWP, Robhino, Garrido, Richards, Hart and Elano could all see a start.

There wont be the same inept performance on Sunday, as Hughesy wont tolerate it! Changes will be rung again, and I'm expecting Petrov to figure at some point. Come on City! Let's get some pride back!!

Losing to Brighton was a huge shock in the world of football.
