The Vital MC MOTM Versus Scunthorpe

The Vital MC MOTM Versus Scunthorpe



Sparky's options are getting stronger and the first full 90 minutes in Sky Blue of Roque Santa Cruz underlines City's clear and present danger to our rivals...

Crocky, sorry, Rocky's power in the air was there for all to see as City reached the League Cup Quarter Finals. Himself and Emmanuel Adebayor are giving us the kind of aerial threat that we haven't seen up front since the days of Niall 'Disco Pants' Quinn.

Here's to the affable Paraguayan enjoying the type of City career success to that of the big Irishman, albeit with the trophies Quinny richly deserved for his efforts but never realised:

14. Roque Santa Cruz 35%
7. Stephen Ireland 16%
8. Shaun Wright-Phillips 12%
1. Shay Given 9%

32. Carlos Tevez 1%

Sparky's "mercenaries" keep on putting in more than a shift. What's all that about then, "Fleet Street" hacks?

Well I picked this winner after selecting a couple of dodgy MOTM's recently, hopefully Santa Cruz will get another match or 2 soon after impressing in the last match.

I watched a re-run of this game and then voted for RSC but thought Tevez ran him close

Great to see RSC fully fit and showing some of the form that made him a star at Blackburn. More of the same thanks Rocky.
