MCFC Academy graduate Nedum Onuoha, coveted by Premier League rivals, continues to battle for a regular first team start…

There were precious few bright moments at Pompey in another wretched team no show on the road. Still, Ned’s low risk, no nonsene approach continues to win him admirers.

He’s our Vital MC Man of The Match.

However, Mark Hughes is almost certain to ring the changes as City return to European competition this week. Many of us would certainly like to see Ned continue to retain his place alongside the guaranteed return of Blues skipper Richard Dunne.

PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO THE CARL RAMSBOTTOM APPEAL:

On 27 November 2008, Carl travelled over to Germany to watch his beloved side play Schalke in the UEFA Cup, however due to a tragic incident at a German train station, Carl suffered life threatening injuries.

Due to this horrendous incident, Carl ended up in a coma for three weeks. He is currently in a rehabilitation unit in Germany while his family remain by his bedside.

The family are hopeful that Carl might be in a position to be repatriated to a rehab unit within the United Kingdom, hopefully sometime in March.
