We will not be admiring Man City

We will not be admiring Man City

Chances are, the Mick McCarthy out bandwagon will no doubt pick up some more momentum following the game against Manchester City.

When you are without a win in seven Premier League games, which includes five consecutive defeats, the last team you want to face is a side that is capable of putting six past Manchester United.

But that's what we have tomorrow, a Manchester City side who are top of the Premier League, unbeaten all season, winning every game at home, scoring on average three goals per game and only conceding once at home all season.

It's one of those games that realistically, we just write off.

We shouldn't expect anything from the game and matches against those around us are the ones which we should be aiming for points.

But our Mick believes that City could be ripe for the picking!

"We play in a different league to them and most of the teams do, but we will give it a go and you never know. I`m not going there to admire them - I want to take something off them and will do my level best to do it." McCarthy told the Express & Star.

Is it just wishful thinking? He can hardly turn around and say that he expects a thumping even if he does.

But right now I'd take one of those valiant defeats that we were hoping to avoid this season.

You can pick up confidence and momentum from a good performance, even if it does result in a defeat, so I think Mick has the right attitude going into the game.

Lets hope the players can impress and not fear a good hiding.

I might have written the game off but the team should not do so. If we play a 4-5-1 formation with a midfield with creativity and edge, we can go for them. And who knows? One should never give up hope: why else did I buy a season ticket this year?

As a City fan, I thought the result at Molineux flattered us greatly. We really struggled for the first half hour and didn't play well for any sustained period throughout the game. I thought Wolves played very well early on and ok for the rest of the game. Everything we hit goes in at the moment but that cannot continue. It will be two totally different teams tomorrow, so hopefully the match will stay fresh.

If we can keep City down to a max of 3 goals, that won't have been a bad day's work for us.I agree with the sentiment that they can't bang in 5 or more every match, but they could against our defence.I hope the match stays as fresh as it can for as long as it can, too, camelsfoot...and that's as much optimistic as I can muster!COYW!

See, I can't even type 'optimism', regarding this match, let alone feel any. It's like the Fonz trying to say 'sorry'.

... or MM making the gesture, for that matter. But, if puts out a viable team this afternoon, I will acknowledge his conversion.

That throws up an interesting question,SB.Which of the two is more likely to use the 's' word?As for the game, I think the result is completely dependent on City. Should they be complacent in any way, then we stand a cat in hell's chance.If that isn't optimism, I don't know what is!
