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

Shay: City Will Do Big Things



On tour with Aston Villa in Hong Kong, former City goalkeeper and Ireland's Number One Seamus Given has underlined his belief that The Blues are going places...

If only you could play with two 'keepers and bigger nets. A sentiment that many Blues identified with in the knowledge that the ever popular Irishman couldn't dislodge England's Joe Hart last season or the next unless the young star was injured.

Now free of the serious shoulder injury that essentially all but ended his City career, the Villans new signing has revealed to the Irish media that it was a wrench to leave the Etihad Stadium:

'Leaving Manchester City, who are going to be a big club in world football, was a big decision...but I had to be playing regularly.'

And there is no doubt in Shay's mind that Roberto Mancini will continue to work his shrewd magic as The Citizens seek to build upon long craved for success:

'...City will do big things. They have fantastic owners, who are bringing in some of the best players in the world, so I think it is inevitable they will do big things like winning the Premier League and the European Cup, if not next year then in the years to come...it is just a matter of time.'

Top man and already sorely missed around Carrington. All at VMC wish Shay the very best of luck at Villa Park.

Come on Guys it is time you dislodge that other shower and win the title. I am not overly happy at the way Chelsea bought it and you will in time (hopefully 2011-2012) that being said if it beats chew a lots to the title then bring it on. Shay a steal at 3.5 delighted to see like big Dunny that City fans are sorry to see him leave. The Villa to beat City on penalties FA cup final 2012? COTVABU
