Man City Injury Updates

Man City Injury Updates

Who's fit and who's crocked...the complete list, well no actually just news on Sidders and Lukey Young to be honest.

Speaking on the official site Monnymite said he was hopeful that Steve Sidwell would be back in contention for the City clash after missing the Blackburn game with a thigh injury he picked up in our match against Cardiff.

'Steve is improving, we will take it lightly for the first couple of days but I am hoping that he would be alright.'

However, Luke Young is still not ready for first team action but Monny expects him to be back in contention after the International break.

'Luke is doing really well, he is improving his fitness each week.'

As far as no news is good news can be concerned, although still crocked Boum Boum and Downing haven't made the official site for a few days so progress must be going alright for them.

Off topic, but I just read this on another side about the most overhyped players in recent times: Nii Lamptey – The Ghanaian became a key player at PSV Eindhoven before Ron Atkinson brought him to Aston Villa in the summer of 1994. His huge potential, however, was not realised there and he soon followed Atkinson to Coventry, where he also flopped. A move to Venezia proved equally unsuccessful and he went on to play for a succession of lower status teams before retiring from the game last year following a spell at South African side Jomo Cosmos.

Even if Sidwell is fit to play, his lack on match fitness may not be enough to stop a good Manchester City side which sees the return of Adebayor, although Robinho is definately out. I am sure Dunney is looking forward to playing against his former team mates.

we have to mix things up a bit.....i am bored by some of our play so far this season, it is unimaginative. happy with the results, but we really need to spark more.....i think Downing will provide this.......... when he is fit....

good point leftfoot, really looking forward to seeing what Downing has to offer, he's always looked good to me, not that I've watched Boro very much apart from when we are playing them, so who knows, he might be another important part of the jigsaw. Agree that the performances have been lacking but also that the points have been welcome and if we can build on that to start playing more convincingly, then it could be a decent enough season. If we don't have another gear to step up to though, then it will be cause for concern .... lets cross that bridge when we get to it though!
