VMC Man Of The Match Versus Sunderland

VMC Man Of The Match Versus Sunderland



Adam Johnson's lively substitute appearance and sublime stoppage time equaliser were more than enough to secure the VMC Forum vote for MOTM at the Stadium of Light...

Otherwise, this was a wretched City performance that only sprang into life in a blockbuster of a second half.

That said, The Black Cats are emerging from a long, dark winter of discontent firing on all cylinders.

In the scheme of things, they could well have a say in which club secures a 4th placed Premier League finish this season.

Wearside is going to be a difficult place to go for the remainder of this season and most notably, Spurs have to go their in April.

If The Mackems can take this form on the road, then Villa and Liverpool can both expect a game later this month.

Back to City, and after Johnno, Craig Bellamy's running, Joleon Lescott's continued improvement and Patrick Vieira's promising performance were all recognised by the VMC worldwide community:

11. Adam Johnson [60%]
39. Craig Bellamy [20%]
19. Joleon Lescott [13.33%]
24. Patrick Vieira [6.67%]
1. Shay Given [0%]
2. Micah Richards [0%]
33. Vincent Kompany [0%]
3. Wayne Bridge [0%]
8. Shaun Wright-Phillips [0%]
5. Pablo Zabaleta [0%]
34. Nigel De Jong [0%]
18. Gareth Barry [0%]
32. Carlos Tevez [0%]
14. Roque Santa Cruz [0%]

The Story So Far:
FA Premier League unless stated

Carlos Tevez, 6 (Bolton A, Spurs A, Wolves A, Blackburn H, the rags H, LCSF1, Chelsea A)
Nigel de Jong, 5 (Fulham H LC R3, West Ham H, Wigan Athletic A, Liverpool A, Chelsea H)
Craig Bellamy, 4 (Arsenal H, the rags A, Villa A, Sunderland H)
Gareth Barry, 3 (Blackburn A, Portsmouth A, Stoke H)
Shaun Wright-Phillips, 3 (C. Palace A LC R2, Burnley H, Arsenal H LC QF)
Wayne Bridge, 3 (Fulham H, Hull A, Stoke H, FAC5)
Adam Johnson, 2 (Bolton, H, Sunderland A)
Micah Richards, 2 (the rags A LCSF2, Stoke A)
Emmanuel Adebayor, 2 (Wolves H, Portsmouth H)
Shay Given, 2 (Birmingham A, Everton A)
Pablo Zabaleta, 1 (Liverpool H)
Martin Petrov, 1 (Scunthorpe A FAC4)
Vincent Kompany, 1 (Middlesbrough A FAC3)
Roque Santa Cruz, 1 (Scunthorpe H LC R4)

City's 1-1 throwaway against Hull City and the FA Cup exit at Stoke registered no winner.

SWP was my man of the match. He really showed why he's worth that £100k a week he's asking for.

Spoke volumes that our subersup convincingly won the man of the match poll. Too many poor performances, betetr second half, even better when Johno came to the party.

Is there space on the plane for Johnno now that "Goldenballs" is crocked? Watch this space...

They took Walcott and he had never played a game for Arsenal, I don't see why Johnno could not be in the squad, I hope he starts Saturday.
