The fever pitch successful ban Adebayor campaign that has raged since City's 4-2 win over Arsenal leaves City with no options up front now Carlos Tevez is confirmed as out...
Assistant Manager Mark Bowen has advised the official site that Tevez is 'very doubtful' for Sunday's Manchester derby:
'What we are hearing is that it's probably going to keep him out, but until the doctor assesses him hands-on we don't really know.
The boss has been in contact with the Argentina medical team, as has our medical team.
'But the signs are not encouraging. We wouldn't 100% rule him out yet - fingers crossed and we are always hopeful, but it's very doubtful.'
Tevez's absence following on from Adebayor's certain ban leaves Mark Hughes a frustrated man with his revitalised six man senior strike force now decimated.
Tevez joins Roque Santa Cruz, Benjani, and Robinho on the treatment table.
Sparky will now know that his rejuvenated side, having fused quickly and already proving they can beat anyone on their day will only have Craig Bellamy up front when only a fortnight ago it looked as if we would be in a strong position to have a real go at the League Champions.
The lack of height that plagued our forward line all last season has returned and it's now pointless bemoaning City allowing one striker too many to leave this past summer.
One thing's for sure, we can rely on Bellamy to give it 110% based on his previous battling performances.
'We are tougher and stronger,' said the Welsh terrier this week.
Despite the club coming under siege from all angles this week, if the team continue to work hard for each other and battle away, there's no reason why we can't continue to upset the Big Four apple cart.
If Arsenal fans are anything to go by, the rags wouldn't be able to handle a defeat!
No surrender. Siege mentality.
