City Vs West Ham - The Crown & Lion Monday 28th Sept K.O. 11.00pm

Seen as i have just about calmed down after the infamous timegate charade of last Sunday i am back relishing the visit of Zola's West Ham for some deserved retribution after last weeks debacle at the swamp.

Our Boy Blues stood up to the plate this week with a hard earned victory over the ever improving Fulham under Roy Hodgson. Hodgsons whole team who got the not for the fixture had either played one or zero premier league games this season. They started well at eastlands with 35yard screamer from Zoltan Gera in the first half and remianed formidable opposition for most of the game but a resilient City got the deserved place in the final sixteen teams after an equalizer from Gareth Barry and a winner from Captain Kolo.

With the four day rest break for Hughes team they hopefully should all be in peak shape for the Visit of the Hammers. Run-outs for Michael Johnson and Roque Santa Cruz in mid week which they both came through unscathed means that they should be fit enough for a call up to the bench for this match. Tevez should also be fit for a start aswell as Micah Richards who was rested against Fulham midweek. Kick-Off is late this week but some fans are likely to be at the Players Lounge bar or the Crown and Lion.

Chairman's Prediction - Bellamy to continue his great vein of form against his old club and get two goals in a 3-0 victory to the blues.

All enjoy your weekend.
