Vital MC Man Of The Match Awards: Aalborg

Vital MC Man Of The Match Awards: Aalborg



Manchester City's Brazilian masquerading as an Irishman, Stephen 'Superman' Ireland bags his 10th Vital MC MOTM vote of the season...

As the season enters it's final weeks, it's down to MCFC Academy graduates Ireland and Shaun Wright-Phillips as to who will be crowned Vital MC Player Of The Season.

Both were outstanding last night, as was last season's main man Elano in what should have been a 10 nil massacre, and amongst other players are running into a rich vein of form at precisely the right time.

COME ON CITY!!

PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO THE CARL RAMSBOTTOM APPEAL:

On 27 November 2008, Carl travelled over to Germany to watch his beloved side play Schalke in the UEFA Cup, however due to a tragic incident at a German train station, Carl suffered life threatening injuries.

Due to this horrendous incident, Carl ended up in a coma for three weeks. He is currently in a rehabilitation unit in Germany while his family remain by his bedside.

The family are hopeful that Carl might be in a position to be repatriated to a rehab unit within the United Kingdom, hopefully sometime this month.

City Academy graduate -- 22-years-old -- the world at his feet. TEN man-of-the-match performances already this season. Fantastic form. JB's "Brazilian masquerading as an Irishman" is spot on. He is showing pure talent and skill. And the way he and Robinho are starting to turn on the magic you could well believe he is truly becoming a "Samba-beat" player. But in reality he has got there by hard work and total commitment... This the requisite for the skill to shine through. Robinho is recognised as a world-class player. But at times last night you could see Stevie in the same regard. And the even better news is that our very own SWP, also a City graduate, is looking the real deal too. I'm pinching myself and there is pain. But even so a dream is starting... If City can build a team around these three... We fans can see the UK's best football at Eastlands.
