Trio named in emerging XI

The City of trio of Joe Hart, Michael Johnson and Ched Evans have all been named to an emerging British XI, named on Sky Sports' website.

The full team is listed here and given that we were the only club to feature more than one player, it is yet another indication of the success of our academy set up to be represented so prominently - and not even included in the line-up are the more established Nedum Onouha and Micah Richards, and those waiting in the wing such as Kaspar Schmeichel, Ishmael Miller and Kelvin Etuhu.

vote it up!

Don't think Kaspar can be classed as part of a British XI really, and not sure about Kelvin either. But the sentiment is right there - Nedum was awesome against Blackburn ('brave linesman'? What was that all about? - he chickened out as soon as he got surrounded by redshit Hughes sledgers). Don't worry they'll get theirs when our mean streak is fully developed. We just need some muscle down the right, and to develop our overlaps on both wings. Corluka for Didi? It's working very nicely.
