Wigan Athletic Vs City - The Crown & Lion Sunday 18th Oct K.O. 7.00pm

It seems to have dragged on for an eternity, but the international break is finally over.................... at least for another three weeks anyway.

So what have we learnt from this break? Well, we now have conclusive proof that Rio Ferdinand can't actually defend, that Steve Bruce has a man crush on David Beckham, and that England's best players are clearly Wayne Bridge, Gareth Barry, and Shaun Wright-Phillips. Oh, and that simply playing for Stretford Rangers is enough to land the England goalkeeper's gig, even if you have recently been playing like an orangutan with a rod stuck up its bottom.

City look to get back to winning ways this week after earning a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa several lifetimes ago as they travel the short distance to Hicksville, Lancashire to take on the pie eaters of Wigan.

Roberto Martinez's side currently sits 12th in the table on eight points from nine games. They have won two and lost four of their last six games and come into this fixture on the back of a 2-1 away defeat to Hull.

Unfortunately it's yet another Sunday game, so work commitments / general laziness may get in the way. However, for those of you interested in getting out for a few jars, mcfcUAE will be meeting at the Crown & Lion in Al Barsha's Byblos Hotel from 6.30pm to watch this game on the big screens with full English commentary. The day's other fixture is Blackburn Vs Burnley at 4.00pm, so do please try your best to rein in the excitement.

See you there,
