No news on Lichaj's injury yet, but he did have the ball in the back of the net on 14 mins if that cheers anybody up.

Was always going to be a hard match today with the next generation stepping up to reserve level and we're obviously missing the regular names like Bannan, and Delfouneso who would've no doubt played had it not been for International commitments so no great reason to worry, I'm sure by the end of the season the second string will have done us proud again.

Will update with more accurate times and additional subs when confirmation is in.

Edit - updated

Actually Mike, we've got the Athletics arena right next to CoMS - holds more people than Ewan Fields, but our club chose to give something back to the community it originally came from. From Wiki: "The Manchester Regional Arena is a multipurpose stadium in Manchester, England primarily used for athletics and association football. It was originally developed as the warm-up track for the 2002 Commonwealth Games held at the adjacent City of Manchester Stadium. It has hosted the AAA Championships and Paralympic World Cup, and was the reserve home ground of the Manchester City reserve team prior to moving to Ewen Fields in June 2010. It is the current home of the Manchester City ladies' side. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester_Regional_Arena

No worries mate, I did spot the LOL at the end of the comment, but we City fans are having to work overtime to counteract all the negative propaganda that's sprung up recently! Tell you what, I much preferred the athletics arena, not only closer to home, but a nicer stadium as well! Better pubs in Hyde though, but I'll have to drive down their if I want to watch the reserves, so won't be able to make full use of them :(

Fair's fair, I don't like (like I didn't with Chelsea) the way the money is being thrown around and the wider damage that will be done to the game - but to be fair that started with the Sky millions and player wages, but credit where it's due - that is a nice touch from your club and it's a shame more won't do the same really. Sounds like it's a bit tough on the fans given the distance, probably be better for you if it alternated games between Ewen and the Athletic, maybe kick the U18's down to Hyde to make up for it. Best of both worlds then.
