City cruised to a 2-0 victory against Danish side Aalborg last night, handing the Blues the advantage to proceed through to the UEFA Cup quarter-finals.
Aalborg were poor considering that they had arrived at Eastlands with a 16-match unbeaten run to protect, and had previously beaten Deportivo La Coruna 6-1. City scored through goals from Felipe Caicedo and Shaun Wright-Phillips and will go to Denmark next Thursday knowing that it is theirs to mess up. In fact they should have scored more, with Stephen Ireland, Wright-Phillips and Robinho all going close to increasing City's advantage.
My only disappointment was the crowd. 24, 503 was a shocking crowd considering City were in the last 16 of the UEFA Cup, with a real shot at winning their first trophy for 33 years. What's going on? Do you guys not want to see City progress? Where were all the fans? Credit crunch....it was on telly....any excuse eh....
