Vital MC Man Of The Match Awards Update

Google language translator

With his never say die blue blooded spirit and tireless work rate despite being relentlessly scythed down by the rags, SWP is our MOTM from a pisspoor Manchester Derby...

Shaun Wright-Phillips total commitment to Manchester City is now without any question and he certainly didn't deserve to be on the losing side yesterday.

Our MOTM polls always provide a sound indicator of how our squad is performing and this season it's becoming something of an MCFC Academy procession with SWP and Stevie Ireland sharing 13 star performances between them!

I wonder how many more teams will adopt that tactic against SWP in future matches.

If we could smack in a few of the free's he wins, then we'd be in the top half. Christ, the amount of times I shouted "SHOOT" yesterday...

I must say it is the first time I have disagreed with the MOTM result this season. I thought Vincent Kompany was immense yesterday and but for him it could have been worse.

I expected the Rags to dish out some "special treatment" after Taggart had gone over the top criticising teams for "targetting" Ronaldo. The difference of course is that Ronaldo has been shown by TV evidence to regularly dive to get free kicks. I expected the Rags would go for Robinho but four bookings in challenges against SWP tells its own story. The word "disgraceful" is not strong enough if you ask me .

city81. Robinho didn't look 100% fit to me. Sprained ankles can be very painful. I can't think of another reason because he is pure class and the Derby game is the sort of challenge Robinho thrives on.

Gents, I understand that Robinho played after having pain killing injections in his ankle. I would rather he had not been risked.

Robinho was not fit and several fans have mentioned that he didn't look his normal self. I would rather have rested Robinho than lose him for another three or four games. I agree Alphie, Kompany was up there and he will become one of our best players and should have been MOM.
