Vital MC Man Of The Match Awards: Middlesbrough
Google language translator
Our Republic of Ireland number one Shay Given was absolutely outstanding in his Manchester City debut against Boro, putting in a match winning performance...
Mark Hughes' pursuit of Given's wealth of experience was absolutely justified inside the players first 90 minutes behind the sky blue line.
His distribution was exemplary and his constant communication with our young defenders delivered a calming effect.
We can go into the tough challenges our last 14 league fixtures represent reassured at the back and knowing our excellent young 'keepers Joe Hart and Kasper Schmeichel can learn a lot from Given's approach to the game.
