VMC Man Of The Match Versus Burnley


The VMC Forum posse earmarked the crucial contribution of MCFC's World Cup winner Patrick Vieira in bossing midfield throughout City's thumping of Burnley...

The giant Frenchman responded competitively to shedloads of stick in recent weeks during which he was publicly asked by City gaffer Roberto Mancini to up his game.

Registering his first goal for The Blues will have done him the power of good.

Vieira's experience will be called upon further as The Citizens gear up for the last 6 games of this enthralling campaign.

Check out the link to Paddy's post match reaction at the foot of this article.

Of note in our latest MOTM poll, Emmanuel Adebayor's work rate has increased tenfold.

In point of fact, all of City's main strike force have contributed important goals to the Blue cause since their recruitment:

Tevez: 33 starts, 26 goals
Bellamy: 36 starts, 14 goals
Adebayor: 24 starts, 11 goals
Santa Cruz: 6 starts, 4 goals

MOTM v Burnley:

24. Patrick Vieira [35.71%]
25. Emmanuel Adebayor [14.28%]
11. Adam Johnson [14.28%]
4. Nedum Onuoha [14.28%]
39. Craig Bellamy [14.28%
16. Silvio Sylvinho [7.17%]
1. Shay Given [0%]
28. Kolo Toure [0%]
33. Vincent Kompany [0%]
18. Gareth Barry [0%]
32. Carlos Tevez [0%]
14. Roque Santa Cruz [0%]
34. Nigel De Jong [0%]
52. Alex Nimely [0%]

The Story So Far:
FA Premier League unless stated

Carlos TÚvez, 9 (Bolton A, Spurs A, Wolves A, Blackburn H, the rags H, LCSF1, Chelsea A, Fulham A, Everton H, Wigan H)
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)
Patrick Vieira, 1 (Burnley A)
Pablo Zabaleta, 1 (Liverpool H)
Martin Petrov, 1 (Scunthorpe A FAC4)
Vincent Kompany, 1 (Middlesbrough A FAC3)

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

Brilliant result where 5-6 players could have been awarded MOM. Special mention for Johno who was absolutely quality, his distribution from corners was spot on as well as he cutting in from the flank

Glad to see Paddy getting recognition for his superb performance on Saturday, granted the space the Burnley allowed him played no small part in allowing him to turn in such a well rounded performance, capped with a well taken header to top it off. His experience and winning mentality could prove pivotal in the run in and it would be nice to see them hacks and opposition fans that criticised Mancini for brnging him in eat their words.

He's a real statesman is Paddy. Always good value in an interview. The video link certainly gives you the impression he has settled in.

Having watched the game, my impression is that Vieira's primary purpose is to provide experience, leadership and a winning mentality. I don't get the impression that he's going to play much of a part, if any, next season, assuming that you are looking to make significant progress again next season. Still, you look like you'll wrap up 4th, and should you do so, Vieira's done his job.
