Manchester City's talisman Carlos Tevez quintessentially captures the Blue Mood as City prepare for the showdown with Sheriff Taggart and his cowboy chancers...
The 15 goals in 22 starts striker whose services the rags could not afford underlined what is firing The Blues in an interview with the dreadful Daily Mirror. The man that rag smugfest United We Stand described as 'a dog chasing a stick' when they realised he was leaving them said:
'What happened at Old Trafford earlier this season is still in our heads and this is the moment for revenge.'
Tiny Tim, The English Patient's time added on to time added on's winner has not led to many more appearances in the AIG shirt and if Tevez's attitude going into this one is anything to go by, City are intent that there will be no repeat:
'I want to play in this match for many reasons. It's a semi-final, a derby and there's a bitter rivalry between the two clubs. I believe this is a good moment for us to play a local rival like United, who never normally give anything to their opponents. In a semi-final over two matches and in a derby, anything is possible. But I think the key will be the return game at Old Trafford and we must ensure we get a good result at home.'
Certainly, off the park, City's support is up for this one like no other before and wrongs are after being put right. The rags can be assured of a thunderous unwelcome reception as they prepare to face what is even with injuries, the strongest City side in decades:
'Slowly we have improved our level, the squad is confident, morale is high and if we get a victory over United it will be sensational.'
Bring it on.
