You know how it goes by now: I apologise for being too busy to update the blog (who’d have thought flying and working would make you tired!), explain that things will soon be back to normal (Monday, people, Monday) and then rush off into the wilderness (in this case, Oscar Wilde’s for today’s FA Cup game).
Before doing so I want to provide the world’s fastest Manchester City match report and Leeds United preview, all rolled into one.
Manchester City: The played for a point, we played for a win. Outstanding attacking performance, tested Joe Hart (and the frame of the goal) more than enough and were unlucky not to win. Many, many positives to take from the game including Robin van Persie’s involvement and our second clean sheet at the back. No dramas with the draw.
Leeds United: The rotation in the squad will be massive, so much so that no-one has any idea who will partner Sebastien Squillaci at the back. Where City parked the bus Leeds will go at us with a unique 4-0-6 formation (yes, you heard me) and it could be a high-scoring, entertainment-packed footballing feast.
Enjoy the game people and enjoy the (hopeful) return to normality* on Monday.
