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

Mancio Pays Respect To Big Mal



Roberto Mancini's growing bond with Manchester City supporters has been further augmented by him dedicating The Blues win at Blackpool to Malcolm Allison...

'Malcolm was an important manager for City and I am very sorry for his passing. This win was for him.'

His words have been well received across Planet Blue and a packed Eastlands will join the City gaffer in remembering the larger than life Big Mal before the massive game against Arsenal next Sunday.

It is sure to be an emotion charged occasion as City fans come together to show their appreciation and admiration of one of English Football's most passionate, flambouyant and meticulous coaches.
