Cue huge sighs of relief around Stretford and Beijing as arctic weather in Manchester has seen the League Cup Semi-Final clash with MCFC postponed…
Third division Leeds’ humbling of the rags on Sunday left Taggart’s belittling plans for the cup clash in disarray with the home counties natives seriously restless meaning he would be forced to field his predominantly ageing senior players.
Without question, the risk of a second humiliation inside 4 days being lifted will leave legions of rags who have been incredibly silent for days, massively relieved.
Roberto Mancini’s City squad will be immensely frustrated because despite a lengthening injury list, The Blues have been playing superbly.
Mancio will be content in the fact that an opportunity to repair a number of knocks has materialised and that City can now get two more Premier League games under their Umbro belts against struggling Blackburn and Everton before finally locking horns with united later in the month.

Wednesday 27th January 2010 @20h00 GMT:
The Swamp, the rags v City
