As City suddenly threaten to score goals every time they pour forward again, we catch up with the VMC Forum posse’s fascinating squad performance monitoring…

We are seeing some real trends emerging in line with Planet Blue’s votes and the players’ respective form.

David Silva is reasserting himself at the top of our leader board with some irrepressive displays and the brilliant Sergio Aguero has powered up the table into second spot. Samir Nasri has grown in confidence whilst Joe Hart and Vincent Kompany are the only men from the backline to make the current top ten.

The 94 goal Citizens are going to take some stopping on current form!


The VMC Man of The Season Format 2011-2012:

This season VMC is running our Man of The Season contest using a Formula One style points system run by PhillyCitizhun Productions replacing the accumulated polls won result used at the end of the previous four seasons to define our Maine Man. This way we are getting greater accuracy over who is regularly putting in a shift for the City cause.
