Woohoo, there goes one of my New Year resolutions :-)

Starting to get a little nervous now in anticipation of the match tonight, a real pisser that Dave is out but fingers crossed we still have enough to do'em.

C'mon City

Though I only miss a big senior reaction (and acheivement) adversus a very bad start when playing a dirty solid side (say not Villa or Fulham), in order to change my mind about the seasonal potential.
Still I don't miss the point Ted and most are rising: now - senior or evolved junior we may be nowadays - we are already the BEST TEAM of the League, so that it must happen something very adverse for not winning an pivotal match.



If anybody - a very few - would still have a doubt on that I am a twunt....here above!!!
I asked for a final proof in adverse conditions versus a solid side... and tonight I get the reward: City taking at the Emirates without David and Mario, ffs!!!

Worser than worse I could even be attending a business dinner at ko time... :-) Image

So, what can I say??? Image

Should David and Mario have been I would probably have tubed "You ain't seen nothing yet"... but I am too nervous to do that...

1. "unintelligible language"
2. "ACID QUEEN"
3. "never once fails to turn a football thread into a himseelf thread"
4. "thumbs stalker often resulting in repetitive thumb strain"

You'd need to make a very good psychiatrist in order to guess what next in a eight yrs long line of hatred...


In Roger Ailes/Donnie Drumpf's words: "don't know it for a fact, but many people say so..."
there must be some truth, then!

I'm sure this isn't going to be the spectacle that everyone thinks. I think that it'll probably be 0-0 or 1-0 to either side.
I seriously hope I'm wrong. I want to return the favour they did us at Eastlands, the twunts.

The Arse game was the only one I got to see at COMS last year, so I am hoping for a little revenge today

Nothing given away in training but my guess would be the obvious team at least for the front 6!

Hart
Boateng,Vinnie,Lescott,Zaba
Nigel,Barry
Yaya
AJ,Tevez,Milner

Boateng might not please many but it does seem he is the preferred one at the moment. Lescott instead of Kolo?? That might be switched as maybe Kolo is more suited to defending against the way Arsenal play but Lescott is the man in possession and has been playing well.

Result? I sadly fear a defeat 1 nil. I am sure we will approach the game to contain them and break when we can and the best possible would be a 1 nil win.

I am deeply concerned by this game. No Silva is a huge blow but if he seriously picks Boateng, we could be on for a long bastard night. Micah and Zabs, end of. Sitting abck would be fatal, but Mancini will. We will need a slice of luck tonight. Here's hoping.

Well, with Silva missing & Boateng playing, that would mean we're potentially weakened in both attack & defence so we'll do well to get anything. I wonder if he'll swap AJ over so Milner can protect Boateng or whether he sees the threat as being down the left, perhaps from Walcott?

Sounds about right team wise.. although i feel you never really know with Bob.
Will be tough game, if we can keep them out i think we have a chance.. they may get frustrated. lets hope so.

Not even thinking about a draw. We are good enough to win this and i'll be dissapointed if we don't.
