Manchester City V Bolton Preview

14/12/2007 - Eastlands - 3pm

In a reversal of the last couple of years it is City who sit in the top six and welcome a struggling Bolton side only just coming to terms with the loss of Fat Bastard Allardyce. Ginger Bulemic Gary Megson is carrying on the tradition of 'the beautiful game' at the reebok.

Bolton have held the upper hand for three years since an emphatic 6-2 win, bizarrely what sticks in my mind most about that win was Allardyces stinging criticism of his team for coming and 'playing football' , so glad we didn't get him.

Anyway onto tomorrow's game 2 of the players of the season so far return in Elano and Hamman, whilst Ireland misses out due to suspension. Bolton have no new injury worries.
With the League cup quarter final coming up quick on tuesday, im a little suprised that Elano is been risked against a team that has now added nasty tackles too its already impressive time wasting and persistent fouling routine's.

An early goal is the order of the day as Bolton will certainly come for the draw, I predict a 3-1 win with the players inspired and in some cases worried with the news that Castillo is too become the first of a few high profile January signings. Anelka with the late consolation !

vote it up!
