This weekend could well be the first and last Manchester City Home game at 3pm standard Saturday Kick-off time for some time ahead. With City now safely through to the group stages of the Europa Cup drawing Juventus, RedBull Salzburg and Lech Poznan in the process, there will be many European Thursday night football games to come. Along with the Carling Cup games it is likely many of Manchester City's fixtures will be rescheduled for Sunday afternoon and Monday evenings.
With this in mind I am calling all Dubai Blues to arms. Get into the Crown and Lion on Saturday at 1pm onwards to enjoy what may be our last Saturday kick off for some time. The fasting season of Ramadam is likely to be over and Eid Al Mubarak will likely of commenced so plenty of ale will be readily available.
Manchester City need to get back on to winning ways after a small blip last week against Sunderland and nothing more than a thrashing of Blackburn Rovers and full points will do. With six of the City squad having helped England to two convincing wins in the European championships group stage against Bulgaria and Switzerland spirits and morale should be high in the camp. Fingers crossed Blackburn are in for a hammering.
At 3pm Saturday in the Crown and Lion we will find out. See you all there.
