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

Support Sparky

Google language translator


With the English press beginning to give Manchester City boss Mark Hughes a hard time following a string of poor results, we at Vital MC have decided to buck the trend and show our support.

Since the 45-year-old Welshman signed a three-year City contract back in June Sparky began the Premier League campaign with a 4-2 away drubbing at Aston Villa. The following week City came back and tore apart a very average West Ham side 3-0. City left August behind on a winning streak after blowing away his former United teammate Roy Keane's Sunderland, 3-0.

Since then the Eastlands side have stuttered...

Chelsea 1-3
Portsmouth 6-0
Wigan 1-2
Liverpool 2-3
Newcastle 2-2
Stoke 3-0
Middlesbrough 0-2
Bolton 0-2
Tottenham 1-2

10 November 2008

Having played 12 Premier League games Manchester City sit in 13th place, two points away from bottom club West Brom.

10 - Fulham - 14 points
11 - Bolton - 14
12 - Stoke - 14
13 - Man City - 13
14 - West Ham - 13
15 - Blackburn - 13
16 - Tottenham - 12
17 - Wigan - 12
18 - Newcastle - 12
19 - Sunderland - 12
20 - West Ham - 11

Sparky and his team have a seven-day break until their next game away at high flying Hull City. With skipper Richard Dunne and Gelson Fernandes missing following their red cards yesterday Mark Hughes is going to have re-shuffle his team and somehow conjure up a winning side.

Patience is a virtue, we all know that. Sparky has been told there are funds available for new players in the up and coming January transfer marker. We wish him well.

MH has certainly had his influence on our team we are doing a Blackburn and finishing bottom of the Fair Play League.

It's far too early to call! Let's see what he does with the money in January and the summer break before casting doubts. With the exception of Robinho, he has spent conservatively up to now. Things will come good. We just need patience!

He needs time but the squad looks very divided. Our powers of self destruction are second to none.

i think the team involves too much around Robinho he isnt the only player on the team that can score goals. We need to be smart about our football teams are getting smart about us they know to watch robinho and with him been man marked he team look lost
dunne deal
give him time....he has'nt been able to spend properly yet...
lincolnblue
it will take some time to get thing rights ...he has my support... its still early days.

He will be just fine. So far he has had proper money to spend for about 6 hours on deadline day and came up with Robinho. In January he will address the left sided, and midfield weaknesses that the whole world knows about and I can see a good season. November will be difficult but watch him get it right in December and onwards. At the end of May is when he should be judged anyway.
