Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes has been Talking The Blues a fortnight ahead of the season's curtain raiser versus The Citizens at White Hart Lane...
Post an essentially dreary World Cup, 'expert' analysis of The Blues has been restricted to a desperate outburst from the rags' Paul Scholes and the likes of Martin O'Neill or Harold Redknapp acknowledging the City threat. We certainly haven't been subjected to the same ferocious criticism that we've grown accustomed to. Even the usual 'ruining football' hackery has subsided.
Anyroad, the Spurs Brazilian keeper has chosen the moment of his latest interview to offer some advice to East Manchester:
'You never win things with big names alone, you need to do it as a team, not only as names....'
The former PSV man continued:
'City have lots of big-name players, but last season I don't think they performed at their best. With the players they have, they need to do better than they did last season. If they put all their names on the pitch and work as a team, then it will be a great team.'
Gomes played a blinder at Eastlands last May in what became 'The Champions League race for fourth decider' and it will be fascinating to see whether his grasp of the bleeding obvious is mirrored by his grasp of crosses and shots unleashed from what will be a City side strengthened in all areas and carrying a nucleus mindful of that shattering defeat.
We could be in for another cracking contest!
