FC Barcelona: Just Another Team
Manchester City boss Mark Hughes is expected to field a strong starting XI against last seasons Champions League winners, FC Barcelona.
MCFC fly the short distance to the south of Spain on Wednesday (19/08/09) in what is effectively a PR exercise, nevertheless, Blues travelling to the Nou Camp can expect an experience to behold.
Anyone who have ever visit the 98,000 plus capacity stadium will be in awe by the sheer size and grandiose of the Catalan ground. In addition, Bara fans will add to the kudos and general experience, something I wish I could have bottled some years back. I suspect long after the event City fans will be talking about how friendly the locals were for years to come.
If this game doesn't make your mouth water perhaps you should forget all about football and take up another sport - underwater basket weaving perhaps?
During Wednesday's match build-up we at Vital Manchester City will post live feeds from the match via the forums, plus, as usual we will be running our ever popular match day threads.
