'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The VMC Man Of The Match Versus Liverpool



City's midfield cage fighter Nigel de Jong is fast becoming a very important player for Mark Hughes. The tough tackling Dutchman did another job for us on Merseyside...

The question that's starting to knock around Planet Blue increasingly is who his central midfield partner should be. Gareth Barry, after an excellent start to his career with City is said by Sparky to be carrying a groin injury. That would explain his current malaise.

Is Stephen Ireland the answer or step forward Vincent Kompany?

Meanwhile, Carlos Tevez' game changing substitution is acknowledged with a quarter of the VMC vote. Should he start against Hull?

Give us a shout on both counts here and in the VMC Forums.

34. Nigel de Jong 50%
32. Carlos Tevez 26%
7. Stephen Ireland 15%
1. Shay Given 5%
19. Joleon Lescott 1%
8. Shaun Wright-Phillips 1%
25. Emmanuel Adebayor 1%
4. Nedum Onuoha 1%
3. Wayne Bridge 0%
5. Pablo Zabaleta 0%
28. Kolo Toure 0%
39. Craig Bellamy 0%
18. Gareth Barry 0%

No real surprise there then as De Jong was the standout performer amongst those who played 90 minutes although Tevez did play really well when he was introduced as a second half substitute.
