Post Match Reaction to City's pleasing win over Lech Poznan from the Eastlands movers and shakers and the VMC Forum history makers...
'I watched Poznan four or five times, they are a good team. But we played very well in the first half. In the second half we started so-so. I thought they could be a problem but the third goal finished the game.'
The gaffer singled out the on fire David Silva for special praise:
'For David, it's easy to play football. Everything for him is easy. He's a fantastic player.'
The Blues boss then went on to confirm that Emmanuel Adebayor, suddenly running into form, will face The Arsenal:
'Manu has scored a hat-trick and he has a good chance of playing against Arsenal. He gave an excellent performance. It was very important for us and for him...This was a good victory for us because we are first in the group now. I think it was a good day for all the squad and for Manu, because it was important for him to play well...Ade and Tevez can play together - they played against Blackpool together. My teams play always with two strikers, and Manu and Carlos can play together, for sure.'
'City played extremely well, it was a very good lesson for us. The reality turned out to be different from the plan...City showed us what modern football should be like.'
'The mood in the camp is fantastic.'
'Great hattrick for Adebayor but Silva was the architect of our success today...A good performance, moreso in the first half. Very strong and solid. A bit disappointed in our second half, very sloppy defensively. We must pray in unison that Kolo is fit for Arsenal, Lescott gives me the 'Dunnies' (jitters).'
'Job done, but should have had at least 1 or 2 more.'
'Ade's first two goals were brilliant - more of the same please. Silva was just awesome - so clever on the ball.'
'Boyata - I hope we have that lad on a long contract.'
