Carlos ‘El Apache’ Tevez was again Manchester City’s driving force at Craven Cottage winning him the MOTM poll vote of VMC’s Forum posse…
His 22nd goal in 30 City starts was an absolute belter and you just know there will be more to come.
He’s now firmly on course to becoming VMC’s Man Of The Season with 7 poll victories. It’s a mark of his fight to the death spirit that 5 of those poll wins came on the road.
Tev came in narrowly ahead of Patrick Vieira, who’s engine room efforts did not go unnoticed by City’s fans despite many hacks continuing their ‘Get Vieira’ wih him to fail agenda.
City’s focus is now upon Everton and the opportunity for some payback following the very public hammering Everton boss David Moyes gave Manchester City FC around City’s 2-0 defeat at Goodison Park in January.
The story at Carrington is that Moyes gave City their team talk for Wednesday night’s game the moment he gloated to the media at the final whistle.
