UEFA Build Up: Calling International Rigsby!

City's much loved Flying Winger Martin Petrov is on the bus for Newcastle and City reserves' clash with The Barcodes. He could realistically be on his way to Hamburg afterwards...
Were Rigsby to make the bench in Germany, what a shot in the arm that would be for Mark Hughes, his management team and their training ground walking wounded.
Superman Ireland, ankle knacked at Carrington last week joins Vinny Kompany, who nevermind his relentlessly cortisone injected toe injury has now torn a hamstring. Alledgedly City's 50th Hamstring injury of the season.
Despite other ongoing injury concerns, Planet Blue will take heart from the fact that we could still 'do a Schalke' on Hamburg on Thursday night as The Blues only took 18 fit senior players, some carrying knocks, over to Germany last November and still came away with a classy win.
If Petrov can boost Hughes' flagging options then so much the better.
