Well …… the time is almost upon us. Events in South Africa have been put firmly to the back of our minds and the serious business of the Premier League can now take centre stage.

On 5th May Peter Crouch headed us to a 1-0 win over Roberto Mancini’s side at Eastlands ….. and a season double over our Manchester rivals.

Same Again Please !!! - Crouch Breaks City Hearts

Now, in just a couple of days time, City visit the Lane equipped with new signings Yaya Toure, David Silva, Jerome Boateng and Aleksandar Kolarov ….. a side with £75m of improvements since our last meeting ….. and counting !

With only Sandro in for us so far and the Brazilian unable to make an appearance for Harry Redknapp’s side until his current commitments have been fulfilled, the Spurs line up should have a familiar look with Gio Dos Santos the only player looking ready to gate crash our first XI.


Gareth Bale should make the line-up for Spurs after shaking off the knock that forced him to miss out Wales’ midweek match with Luxembourg.

Roman Pavlyuchenko is still suffering with a hamstring injury and looks likely to miss out.

Jonathan Woodgate is still nowhere near a first-team return.


Well, they may have spent big but, Villareal aside, Harrys boys have had a decent pre-season so the City clash should not be striking fear into our boys on the opening day!

With confidence high following our Champions League qualification last time out … at the expense of City, you’d like to think that we could repeat our opening result against Liverpool from last season.

  1. If I were asked to make a prediction I’d go for 2-1 home win but hand on heart I’m more focused on the CL play off otherwise last season’s great effort would’ve been for nothing.

  11. We have no reason to fear City or anyone else, just play to our strengths and let them worry about us , prediction?, dont do them otherwise I’d never be the pauper I am right now!

  12. We have got to win for the World its downing Burning Shaking and Broke . Yet City Oil Slickers are Spending obscene money and wages on players. All to get into fourth spot or beyond and the money comes from Oil the very substance that is set to rocket to 126 a litre and food and jobs will be lost . So we need to show the watching public its immoral to spend all that money when the world his in such a bad way. We MUST WIN AND WE MUST WIN AND WIN WELL FOR ALL THE PEOPLE STRUGGLING TO LIVE A 100 MILLION REASONS 3=1 SPURS

  13. Nice post! GA is also my biggest earning. However, it’s not a much.

  14. Anyone remember the season of the “Famous Five” when Ossie Ardilles was manager. Proof that talent alone is not enough. I think Citeh will take sometime to gel, and expoect them to be embarrassed on Saturday

  15. Prediction: Tevez acts like a complete wanker and dives at least once. Mancini gives an incomprehensible post game conference where he shrugs off there 1-0 loss to Spurs. COYS
