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

Nijinsky: Go For It City



Manchester City's greatest ever player has called for the City side to make the Etihad Stadium a fortress this season...

Ahead of tonight's league opener with Swansea, City and England's Colin Bell told th'official site:

'I want to see us turn teams over and make teams frightened to come to the Etihad Stadium...to have any chance of winning the title we have to really go for it at home and win most of our games here starting against Swansea..

'I'd like to see us set our stall out and attack teams at home because we have the players to do it.'


It's clear upon the evidence that was set out before the nation on it's top flight football pitches this past weekend that City have the tools to win the Premier League.

Opportunity knocks to make a statement with title rivals Chelsea and Arsenal both unable to score goals at Stoke and Newcastle respectively. The rags meanwhile continued where they left off last season with another fortuitous win at West Brom.

We need to play higher up the pitch. Quite often we concede ground and invite teams to have a look at us. We should start no further than 10 yds into our own half and keep it there, reducing them to long balls to nowhere. Then let Silva weave the magic and Dzeko get the goals.

Couldn't agree more Ped. If there's one thing that bugged me about Mancini's tactics last year it's that we drop way too deep and invite the opposition on to us. I'm all for keeping team shape when defending but we need to put pressure on the ball higher up the pitch, hunt the opposition down and give them no time to relax on the ball.
