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

City Stars Out Of Africa To Face The Rags



Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure are gearing up to bolster Roberto Mancini's injury hit side ahead of tomorrow night's League Cup 'Battle Of The Swamp...'

With Togo and The Ivory Coast both out of the African Nations Cup, the way is clear for the big duo to face 'The Billion Dollar Debt Men.'

City skipper Toure is understood to be eager to get back at the helm of a young side that despite defeat at Everton has continued to make progress on all fronts. Kolo has played a lot of football in Africa and is determined to lead The Blues out in the race for Wembley. He will land at Ringway today.

Giant striker Adebayor has been to hell and back in recent weeks but has returned to training at Carrington. Mancio and his backroom team will continue to monitor Ade's progress before pitching him into the side against the ageing, elbow straying Rio Ferdinand and partner.

Kolo's the club skipper and is sure to start if available. If he's up for it and having it, that'll do for me. The more of the lads "97th minuted" are out there, the better.
