Fans demand Castillo!!

73% of people polled on Vital MCFC are asking for an early sighting of new Mexican loan signing, Nery Castillo.

Perhaps worried by recent appearances suggesting Darius Vassell is the number one front man at the club, the supporters want a genuine goalscoring hero instead.

Not since the Goat and Anelka have we had someone capable of netting twenty or so goals a season.

Castillo is the next to be given the chance so let's have an early look Sven.

A Trevor Francis style debut awaits.

Would be excellent to see what new dimension Nerys (lovely boyo) will add to City's game.

Oh God, the Liver Birds, Bluemorg. It'll be Nerys Hughes if he does a Greek Tragedy and becomes Sam Harris! Still, he's known as El Diablo and from what I've seen ont' tinternet the nickname is fitting. Talking of Sam, Birmingham are alledgedly in for him. I've a feeling Mpenza could be off, too. He doesn't seem as up for it anymore and the old injuries are back.

This is what El Diablo is capable of: Check out the Middle Eastern Stuart Hall!

That'll do for me, merlin! The more fans that say they've never heard of Sven's young signings, the more that ensures our surprise package continuity. That said, a more reknowned signing is imminent. Meanwhile, city 81, please can you tell us where you are based?

Nice one city 81! That's brilliant! The good City word continues to spread worldwide! That goalkeeper you refer to could well be Tony Coton. I had a lot of time for him once but sadly, he has been possessed by evil. He is now often found sat on a crowded bench of worshippers behind a certain Sir Ferguson!

Tony Coton yesss, This was his name, I remember him famous incident maybe it was in 1985, When he was keeping the ball, then come player from behind him and stole the ball from his hands & scored the goal :) , But I am sad what I hear from you about him, I wish to him well .

Ah, now the keeper you are thinking of there with the ball out of his hands scenario was Andy Dibble. It was against Nottingham Forest and I wasn't impressed!

Trevor Francis grabbed a couple on his debut. 'Massive' City following that day .... behind the goal and down the side at the Victoria Ground. One of the great City forward debut's.

I understand you City 81. You have picked a team, which has the most loyal fans, who know what its like to have bad days and can recognise talent when they see it. I remember watching us play Arsenal and they beat us 5-1, but they played brilliantly and we appreciated that. I dont think that anyone left the ground before the end, unlike the Newcastle fans earlier in the week. I still think i am in a dream at the moment and am about to wake up and SP is still the manager. Nightmare!!!
