VMC Forum Man Of The Season Latest

Roberto Mancini has selected a settled team for the last few games and the familiarity and togetherness this has generated is clearly benefitting his players...

Gael Clichy is a case in point. Throughout this season's campaigns, Clichy has found himself rotated through the left back role with Aleks Kolarov. Some players can drift in and out of sides at will with no impact upon their performance, but Clichy is the type of player who needs regular games and is not unlike the unfortunate Jimmy Milner and Edin Dzeko in that respect. The difference being that neither Milner nor Dzeko can nail down regular starts as the final countdown continues.

Clichy has been absolutely outstanding for The Citizens in recent games and is tearing into the type of sizzling form that should make him France's first choice left back.

The experienced 26 year old's return to a stable City side has injected consistent pace along the left flank and added more width to a team that has infrequently played to narrowly this season. Some of his tackling and passing have been world class.

The VMC Forum's latest poll which Clichy won by a country mile also confirms that Sergio Aguero is our current player of the season with 3 more games remaining. With 29 goals to his name, the brilliant 23 year old Argentinian hotshot could have scored twice that amount such have been his opportunities. Few would bet against Kun scoring yet again on Blue Monday when the rags come to town...

This is how it feels to be City, this is how it feels to be small, you signed Phil Jones we signed Kun Aguero, Kun Aguero, Kun Aguero.

Zabaleta on course to knock Kompany out of the top10, who'd a thunk it?
rojo2010
Clichy's first motm on VMC, first of many I reckon. What a bargain this fella was. What were you thinking Arsene?
Bluedub
Haha,. wait till he costs you big points.. Oh wait, he already has..
Sajit
When was that Sajit?
Bluedub
Don't remember Clichy costing us any points.
rojo2010
Sorry Sajit, but Clichy is just one of those players that went a bit stale at his former club (Yourselves obviously) and needed a move to reignite his career. As far as we're all concerned he's been a fantastic purchase who rarely lets us down.
fifthcolumnblue
Clichy has been as close to flawless as you could ask for this season. Can count the number of mistakes he's made on half a hand, he's been arguably our most consistent player this season next to Lescott - as in, neither have hard even brief losses of form.

They won't buy Clichy because they have Alaba who looks like he could be the next big thing at left-back and it'd stunt his growth.
