And so it is..

So El Apache ( Carlos Tevez) calls Gary Neville of "Nited" some names.. AND
Its had extensive press coverage in the UK media of their recent spat, and now well. Let MCFC give "Nited" something to really moan at. Lets go to Old Trafford on Wednesday and finish the job. Yes.. lets go there and beat them. We have done it before, lets not go there and defend please Roberto..

I hope Mr Mancini gets his tactics spot on and his team selection. A blind man will tell you that "Nited" will come out with all guns blazing looking for the early breakthrough and to get the theatre of sleep onside.

So i would like City to combat this and pick an adventurous team. I would like to see Stephen Ireland start in place of Gareth Barry who has looked jaded in recent games. Nigel De Jong should retain his place in the centre, and keep SWP there to spring the attacks.

Stick Carlos up top with Emmanuel Adebayor and give the United defence occupied for 90 mins.. instead of the 30 mins we seen last week.

My team would be

1.Shay Given
2.Michah Richards
3.Pablo Zabaleta
4.Vincent Kompany
5.Nedum Onuoha
6.Stephen Ireland
7.Nigel De Jong
8.Craig Bellamy
9.SWP
10.Carlos Tevez
11.Emmanuel Adebayor

Subs

forget the spare keeper, he's pants.. and we dont need him

so..

Robinho
Boyota
Garrido
Benjani
Petrov
Barry

We have enough in our locker to beat Nited.

Lest we forget that we BEAT Barcelona in the Nou Camp earlier this season.

I dont think i have seen a Nited side as bad as this for 20+ years..

When Darren Fletcher can be the main man.. then you have serious issues El Taggart.

1-2 will do me.. as they will score.. but we have enough going forward to trouble them.

I also hope that the match doesnt end with us all squabbling about the officials.. Mr Webb and Mr Wiley.

Step up to the plate City.. We are 100 mins away from out first Wembley Appearance since 1981.. i wont count the Full Members Cup in 1986, or the Play Off Final in 1999..

Make yourself.. HEROES.. not ZERO's

Olden.. but Golden.. well..

United sign Micheal Owen and it was hailed as clever!!!

Arsenal re-sign Sol Campbell and Wenger is hailed as a genius!!

City sign Patrick Viera.. and we're slammed by everyone!!!

Can Chelsea dig out Kerry Dixon NOW..lets have some parity.

Ryan Giggs is 35.. Player of the year last season, blah de blah de blah..

Football shouldnt be ageist.. but in the past few years its become that way.

Will we we ever see the likes of Teddy Sheringham again.. not football wise, but age wise, playing till well into his 40s?

Football is not a hard game.. You do need pace.. but not overly so.

Patrick Viera will slot easily back into the British game..he will play central midfield for Manchester City, he is experienced, a World Cup Winner..City are aiming for the title, his signing could be invaluable..

Solomon Campbell on the other hand shows that ARSENAL have no money. Sol aint played this season, his last club was Notts County of the 4th division..

How he thinks he will be able to handle the pace of the Premierships attackers.

ARSENE.. wakey wakey..

If ya play in attack, you need a burst of pace, or a knack of finding space. Micheal Owen has neither anymore, again.. the worlds self proclaimed biggest club in the world.. is on its ARSE.

Long may it continue..

DARE TO DREAM

So... here comes 2010.. the year i had tipped City to end their 34 yr hunt for a trophy.

When i tipped City to win the title,back in August 2009 i may have been slightly over zealous.I mean we had Mark Hughes+ the welsh taffia in charge, CITY had just spent £200m.. we had Robinho,Tevez,Lescott, Bridge,Adeybayor, Barry, De Jong, Given, Toure, along with academy kids Richards, Ireland, SWP..now that's a SQUAD to win the title, or is it.

We started the season brightly.. then went off the boil, thanks in no part to Adebayors assault on the Arsenal fans, which cost us a LOT MORE than it did Arsenal. Look at the run they went on since we peppered them 4-2..as opposed to where we went.

With the news today that Patrick Viera once of Arsenal is primed to sign on a season long loan from Inter..it will make most City fans shake their heads.. but it will make me happy.. happy in the knowledge that we FINALLY have a proper manager in charge of OUR football team.

Roberto Mancini.. could easily have done a Mark Hughes, by that i mean scoured Europe with £100m and bought a bunch of inform/outta form mercenaries who would have come in and unsettled the fine start we have had under Roberto,albeit with a depleted team.

Look at the players we have missing..

Bridge, Lescott, Toure, Onuoha, Ireland, Adebayor, Robinho, Santa Cruz,Johnson, SWP, etc.. a whole first team unavailable..

So why is Patrick Viera key..He can play midfield, he can play in defence, he's also hungry to make the French World Cup squad in South Africa

He's 33.. He played for Mancini at Inter.( where they won 3 scudettos) He knows Mancini, he knows the Premiership, he knows what it takes to win TROPHIES.because make no mistake.

Roberto Mancini didn't come to Eastlands to finish 4th.. publicly he may well have done.

Roberto Mancini came to England to WIN THE TREBLE.. this season.

League, FA Cup, Carling Cup

Roberto Mancini wants it all.. and he wants it NOW..

Dare to dream.. why not..
