Kolo Toure: A Chance For Revenge

Kolo Toure: A Chance For Revenge



Derby Build Up: Kolo Toure has been recalling his battles against Our Malc's Evil Empire and reckons City offer him the opportunity for personal revenge this Saturday...

Vincent Kompany's right hand man knows exactly what it is like to go unbeaten for so long as the rags have done this season before suddenly tasting defeat.

It was the rare sight of a dodgy Old Trafford penalty in October 2004 that saw Arsenal's 'Invincibles' (including Toure) head for defeat following an unprecedented unbeaten run and City's central defender knows all too well the subsequent psychology involved:

'When you are on a good run like that and you lose, everything becomes harder. It shakes your confidence. Maybe that can happen to them. It was difficult to lose that game. The circumstances were hard because they got a penalty, which we didn't think was a penalty. For us, it was really difficult to lose to United...I think Saturday a great chance for me to get my revenge.'

Toure clearly senses that opportunity knocks for The Blues:

'I have spent most of my career in England battling United, first at Arsenal, now at City. They are always at the top. Now we have new players, we are capable of fighting against them and that has been shown with our results against them over the last 18 months.'

I'd just prefer our players to keep quiet then go about their business on Saturday. Leave the back pages to their half wits, past and present to make the predictions. I want us to win just to shut up people like Charlton, Pallister, May and Fletcher - plus to get three points closer.

Now is the time to strike. Hope you can get the win and close the gap whilst improving your chances of staying in the mix.

Good Luck City

The FA Cup is the only competition MCFC can realistically win this season. But can they overcome Le Arse?

Gabriel Jesus WILL travel with the squad having made a full recovery quicker than most expected from his foot injury while John Stones will definitely miss out after failing to recover from a muscle injury in his leg.
