VMC Man of The Match No 43 versus Fulham

If half the City team had shown the same endeavour and application that One Pablo Zabaleta did against Fulham, Mark 'Shakey' Hughes' lot would have copped for a proper pasting...

Zaba is a massive favourite in Manchester now and has won admirers across Planet Blue with his comitted performances and increasingly savvy tackles.

The unacceptable nonsense excuses of the squad being overworked and too tired don't apply to Zaba who is relishing the intensive series of games that City's players must succeed in if they are to aspire to anything this season.

The VMC Forum posse have made Zaba our Man of The Match.

5. Pablo Zabaleta 56.52%
45. Mario Balotelli 26.09%
19. Joleon Lescott 13.04%
8. Gareth Barry 4.35%
25. Joe Hart 0%
7. Jerome Boateng 0%
28. Kolo Toure 0%
13. Aleksandar Kolarov 0%
42. Gnegneri Toure Yaya 0%
32. Carlos Tevez 0%
10. Edin Dzeko 0%
24. Patrick Vieira 0%

Zaba is a great guy and never lets us down. We didn't use him right against Fulham, but you get the impression that if the only shirt left was the goalie...he'd play there
