Dublin Here We Come - Half Way Stage Update
VMC brings you all the important upcoming dates as City's quest for European glory recommences in Greece on Tuesday night...
City have reached the half way stage of the competition to reach the final in Dub.
The Citizens will play the 9th game of their Europa League campaign at Aris Thessaloniki FC on Tuesday night knowing that if they can secure a win in the Greek side's Kleanthis Vikelidis Stadium fortress, then they stand a very good chance of setting up a last 16 humdinger against Beşiktaş or Dynamo Kiev.
In the words of our leader in all but armband Vincent Kompany, post derby defeat:
'This could still be a very good season for Manchester City. There is too much to look forward to for us to start thinking negatively now...OK, we have lost a game. It is three points. But it took something special for Manchester United to win it.'
Come On You Boys In Blue...
