Thank you from the the Adminstrative staff and Users of Bluemoon for letting me post and answering these questions. It's a
class fansite and well worth a read.What did you think of the opening game against Spurs?Marvin
Good result. Defended well contrary to the views of Alan Hansen, but did not create enough from the significant possession we enjoyed. In the circumstances i.e. new players and limited preparation time after the World Cup a pleasing startUnknown_Genius
Satisfied with the point. We didn't look like a team, but that was to be expected, with so many new arrivals, who have spent little time together. Considering the nucleus of Spurs' team have been together for a long time, away from home, and they hammered us first half, pleased with a point.mccity
Impressed with the result, maybe ought to have done better in the first half. Pleased with our passing and possesion though.Akai
I think we came out with a great result! I am happy with the point.
And Liverpool's against Arsenal, if you saw it?Marvin
Boring 1st half enlived by the Cole sending off. Thereafter Livepool defended brilliantly as they normally do. Good goal from Ngog. Questions remain over Cole (he's never been the same player for me since his cruciate injury) and Liverpool as an attacking force.
Liverpool did well with 10 men, but I don't think Arsenal were that good. I actually thought Liverpool looked more dangerous with 10 men.mccity
A bit like our game, but not as extreme, and with two bad pieces of goalkeeping.
Liverpool surprised me on that one, playing with 10 players for 45 minutes and still manage to score against one of the so called "top four".
What are your expectations for this season? Care to predict where you'll come in the league and how far you'll get in the three cup competitions?
I really don't know where we'll finish. All depends on whether we can keep the vultures at bay whilst City's team gels.
My expectations are that if we don't finish in the top 4, its a disappointment, however 4th will be mission accomplished, anything above is a bonus. I'm predicting 3rd, and a Europa League victory. I think we'll reach the quarters in the 2 domestic cups. I'm forever the optimist.mccity
I expect there to be a big fight for two places in the top four, and I fancy us to get one. I think we'll do pretty well in Europe, OK in the Carling Cup and a semi-final in the FA cupAkai
In the league, we should be in top 3. FA win it, Europa league reach the final .. that's what I am expecting this season.
Who do you think is your most important player(s)?Marvin
Yaya, Tevez, De Jong, Kompany, Adam Johnson, Hart
We might discover Yaya Tourι to be more significant than anyone this year, but I'm expecting another good year for Tevez and HartAkai
Tevez and Yaya.
Your worst player(s)?Marvin
We don't have one
... are hopefully all going to be gone by SeptemberAkai
Do you have a particular memory of any previous meeting between our clubs? Say something that happened to you that day or a decision you disagreed with?Marvin
Nornally Gerrard's divingUnknown_Genius
The last minute goal by Anelka right infront of the Kop, in a 2-1 victory in 2003, will live long in the memory.mccity
Pearce's first win with us winning it late goes down well in my mind with Musampa's volley. The 3-2 at ours is a sour memory, for many reasons.
Any young up and coming players in the squad that we might not know about?Marvin
Watch out for Nimely and Boyatamccity
Ibrahim, Nimely and Guidetti are knocking about, ready to come through. If you haven't heard of Boyata, then him too.Akai
What sort of line-up will be put out against us?Marvin
Hart, Boateng, Toure, Kompany, Kolarov, De Jong, Barry, Yaya Toure, Silva, Tevez, AdebayorUnknown_Genius
Expect the same shape and formation as against Spurs
A 4-3-3 I'd imagine if we got Milner. If we didn't it may look more like a 4-5-1.Akai
Hart, Boateng, Kolo, Kompany, Kolarov, Yaya, Silva, Barry, AJ/SMB, Adebayor and Tevez
Do you have any favourite/best chant(s) and perhaps any that require an explanation?
"Fergie sign him up" for Carlos Tevez, its what the nited fans wer chanting at Fat Fergie to do and never did. To his cost. mccity
Bluemoon does it for me
Which Liverpool player will you fear the most?Marvin
As it stands, GerrardAkai
Apart from Torres and Gerrard, any Liverpool players you'd fancy pulling on the City shirt?Marvin
Pacheco, looks a top prospect
Maybe Skrtel or KuytAkai
Glen Johnson, one of the best RB's in the EPL.
Care to predict the score?Marvin
0-0 . You'll come with 2 banks of 4 and defend like mad. That's the Hodgson way
City 2-1 Liverpoolmccity
I will go for 2-1 City
