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

Vital MC Man Of The Match Awards Update

Google language translator


Our Number 10 continues to silence sports hacks who were willing him to fail to adapt to English football. And he wears short sleeves and doesn't wear gloves...

So, De Souza Robinho has already rattled in a hat-trick against precisely the type of physical opposition those in the know said he'd be stifled by. So far so good for the quicksilver cheeky Brazilian.

Encouraging performances from Elano and Hart too, who would surely have been our MOTM any other game!

I think he's going to make hay while the sun shines this autumn. The timing of his hat-trick is perfect at the start of a crucial phase.

It's amazing the service our strikers are getting and the chances we are creating. Only one glitch up front right now and the media are going after Jo now having failed to topple Robinho....

No surprise at the outcome of this poll. Fantastic performance on Sunday, and let's hope he puts Boro to the sword tomorrow.
