    Sleepy boy to make a comeback from hiding should Citeh win. X)

    Normally playing Citeh, I'd confidently predict a win ('cos we always beat them) - but the midfield lineup for me lacks muscle. Would have preferred Palacios for Huddlestone, plus Corluka is a good player but weak against fast wingers...

    There are so many unknowns in the Citeh team its almost impossible to call. I'd ignore the pre-season catastrophe to be honest. I expect them to be challenging for the second season in a row for a top 4 spot, though defeat in this fixture against the team that kicked them out of the proper European trophy last year, puts Mancini under pressure from day one.

    Would be happy with 3 points.... and dont care how the game goes. I'd imagine Citeh fans if they are honest, wont be overly confident either.

    i think City are the far superior team on paper but theres soo many new players there that need time to gel, im going for 1-1

    One man has kept Man City in this already. Joe Hart.

    Supermod

    Who said English football looks bleak...

    Huddlestone and Hart are quality.

    My stupid bet for today is
    Everton away at Blackburn
    Blues away at Sunderland
    Villa at home to West Ham
    Stoke away at Wolves
    Blackpool away at Wigan
    270/1

    I don't think it is that stupid. Blackpool away will be a problem. At home I think they would have stood a better chance being first game and all.

    It wasn't something I was requesting agreement for! X)

    But seriously, Citeh could have no complaints if they went in 4-0 down at the break. Spurs like quite lively and only some quality keeping has kept them in it, let alone level.
