A Citeh point of view

Q&A with Vital Man City regular Moonarmy live from Portsmouth city centre!!!

Early days I know, but are you happy with how your season is going so far?
Very Excited & happy. About time we City fans had something to look forward to, and the season so far is more than any of us expected. So far so good.

So, you have suddenly become money backs Citeh! How does this feel? Are you overcome with excitement or do you worry slightly that things might go belly up - or is this something that you are sure will not happen anyway?
It feels good to be able to match the financial power of the other top clubs. A long way to go yet, but its one step in what I feel as the right direction. No worries from my end as long as we are not dropped into debt like some clubs I won't mention.

Who do you think has been your best summer signing and why? I think this one 'should' be pretty obvious!
Obviously Shauny Wrighty, I was gutted when he left so obviously I'm made up that he's come home and come home a better player.

Could you have done with more arrivals - if so in which areas and maybe even who? Although I suspect this will not be a problem in the New Year...
Definitely could have done with more, but as you say, the New Year will do. We could have purchased a solid proven left back. This is currently the only weakness I see. All other areas have been covered.

What are you expectations, or hopes for this season? I would suspect they have risen somewhat in recent weeks...
Very good runs in Carling Cup, FA Cup and a Premier League Top 6 minimum, also a good run in the UEFA Cup to gain ourselves a bigger spotlight.

What about Pompey, what do you think we should expect or hope for?
I see Pompey doing well this season as long as Defoe does not dip in form or get injured. I think your season will depend more on him. Definitely top 8 but for my Pompey mates I'd like to see Pompey in Europe next season.

Who is the real danger man that Pompey need to watch?
Tough question, I'd say the danger men as being Robinho and SWP but Petrov is injured. Jo has just found his feet, so maybe he will be a threat too.

If you could take any Pompey player and put him in your squad - and given your riches you probably could! - who would it be and why?
On current form I can only think of one: Defoe.

Is there anyone that you would like to send Pompey's way?
Danny Mills lmao. Nar, only joking, I would not send Michael Ball to you lot either, not that you would want him. Nar, sorry, other than those two I don't want anyone to leave lol!

Go on, who's going to win?
I would not be a City fan if I did not say City, so I'm saying City! Had enough of being cautious, lol!

Am very pleased to hear of your good fortune Moonarmy. Good luck to you all at ManC. However, after Sunday, I have a feeling there will be two or three more Pompey players that you would like to have in your squad. (mind you, that said, we would like to have them ourselves - they are only on loan! Still waiting for a Sheik of our own, unfortunately). Anyway, back to the positives - we are going to win 2 - 1.

If the expectations of this guy are the expectations of the average City fan (ie top 6 minimum AND very good cup runs in three cups), Mark Hughes can expect to be out on his arse by Christmas! I bet he's chuffed to nuts that he left Blackburn now.... Don't mind me though, I'm still a bit bitter that they signed SWP!
21/09/2008 08:33:00
big expectations - particually when your squad hasn't improved masivly over the summer. There aregoing to be a very large number of teams competingfor a top 6 finish - you, us, spurs, villa, everton, westham - to name a few, and there are only two places up for grabs!
21/09/2008 09:29:00
Good answers Moonarmy.. but don't expect too much too soon.. Although Chelski achieved very quickly when they had their 'cash injection' they weren' that far from it beforehand. Always wish City well (one of my favourite sets of fans) but after Sunday of course. My predicition 2-2
21/09/2008 09:32:00
Vincent Kompany is our best summer buy, City to win as usual in Manchester .... I like Pompey but their record in Manchester is worse than woeful
21/09/2008 10:14:00
we rewrote the record books over and over with away wins last season jack... today could see a change in fortunes again, 3-1 pompey for me :-)
21/09/2008 10:47:00
agree Tantona top 6 and very good cup runs will not please those investing all the millions - if that is all you get this season i think someone else will be in hughes' seat this time next year...

Jo gained in confdence with the 2 goals mid week to get him off the mark, he will be more relaxed, you could suffer if you concentrate on Robinho, but Defoe has the Jimmy Greaves finish, given half a chance. could go either way, but home advantage may tell.City by the odd goal, but don't put your shirt on it. good luck for the rest of the season.

I have a lot of respect for what you guys have achieved, and hope to achieve in the future. There are definately good times ahead for both our clubs. Good luck for the season, but starting on Monday!
