FC Copenhagen Vs Manchester City: Uefa Preview.

A nice break away from the disappointment that is our premier league season. There is aspiration from city fans, that we can actually can get to the final in this tournament despite our poor domestic form. We have been quite fortunate in the teams we have been drawn against. Copenhagen are not a bad side but it could of been worse. We certainly have the quality to beat them. Ignoring the nonsense their coach Solbakken has come up with this week, the game should be competitive, and hopefully the team will play with some pride and spirit.

Robinho, the most recent scapegoat is likely to be fit as will Richards. SWP and Dunne will also be available for the fixture. So a pretty decent squad available. Gelson has remained home due to injury, which may lead to Kompany returning to the midfield with the absence of De Jong from the Uefa squad.

Hughes has been calling for the same spirit that enabled us to beat a struggling Schalke side. This game was some time ago, in November. Our most recent European form has been less convincing. A poor display at home to Paris St-Germain and then a woeful loss to Santander leave me with some worry with today's fixture.

i am hoping for a draw at least so we can put a few past them at home. Fingers crossed!

Alot of fans do think we can win this and why not whilst we are still in it we can still win it, but it will certainly get tough in the later rounds and we will need to pull our socks up.

On the poor display against PSG a tad harsh we played ok that night and PSG were nobodys fool very well set up and kept their shape all the way through, cant defend the santander performance that was poor hope we play better against Copenhagen or we are done.

the PSG game was pretty bad, boring and a very cold night. The hughlight was their mental fans.

I am really hoping for a good performance. Raise our game for the UEFA cup.

Suppose it was boring but we were not terrible as a team thats all i meant.

I am hopin for more than a good performance to be honest, we need to win well ,its about time our players got some pride and started playing for themselves as well as our club instead of bein laughed at from week to week.
