Good to see Robbo back in action also Fabio Nunes too. Thought they would have given Rochina a run out too for match fitness etc. Preston will be gutted he is on the bench as he has been doing well. Hope Mahoney gets his chance during the game.

Any chance of getting back to his England level before 04/01/14? Might be able to keep the score respectable that way.
As it is, and commenserate with Venkys reign of plumbing new depths, I fully expect to see our record league reverse of 1-7 being exceeded. It may be that even our all-time record home defeat (0-8) will be rewritten. If City play their second or third string then the impact might not be so bad. Here's hoping.

There are some decent players with lots of first team potential in the U21s - Nunes, Fernandez, Songo`o, Jordan Slew, Marcus Olsson and with the new lad Mahoney and young Preston on the bench. Plus Robbo of course! Nice to see we have some strength in depth....
