Reading v City

I hope City go out and attack. Imo Reading have a fairly poor defence and Elano should take advantage and turn his form around. It has been pretty poor of late and he won't have many easier attempts. Reading are pretty good midfieldwise and will be dangerous on the counter. Hopefully Dunne will be on form today. I predict 1-2 City.

we have to win this one if we are seriously thinking about europe we dropped pionts agianst teams we shud have beaten so this is a must win.2-0 to city
City need a win just for confidence, never mind Europe. More than anything City needs a good performance.
Dunne just went off injured, looked really bad. He was in tears, there was blood coming out of his leg. Doesn't look good.
Oh dear, lets hope its a gash rather than a break or anything.

Defence looks shite now: Sun, Corluka, Garrido, Ball :eek:

The rest of the side looks good and attacking though.
Corluka and Garrido at CB? :googly: :D Oh well... still hopfully City can pull out a win here.

Ball at CB, not Garrido. Its hard to get any info on Dunney's injury, but it looks bad from what I hear. 3 of our 4 centre-backs injured now, thats Dunne, Richards and Onuoha. Will we recall either of the Mills or just give lads like McGivern and Logan a go?

Ball is captain now as well. Bit strange as he's been here 14 months, but only Hamann, Fernandes, Hart or Johnson seem to show any leadership for us.

We need a goal now, no way we'll keep a clean sheet.
what's the formation we're using?
4-3-2-1 from the looks of it. Elano and Vassell out wide. I think that may be to protect Elano, in the middle hes getting kicked too much these days. I'd like to see Caicedo on. Apparently Fernandes is playing very well.
Good news on Dunne, commentator said it's a gash, and it's as nowhere near as first feared :thmbup:

Johnson and Gelson, you are set in the centre of midfield for 10 years :thmbup:
Goal Reading, poor marking by Sun and Corluka.
Ugh 0-1, Shane Long, who should not be playing professional football.
Castillo and Caicedo on for Vassell and Hamann. Come on City, lets get something from this game.
Oh dear, we're shit right now.
england all over again, lots of promise in the beginning and then gradually ****ing up and playing shite :howler:
