Manchester City - 15/02/2002

Manchester City

   FA Cup

All week the build up for this game has been big. For the people itís a massive game with Kevin Keegan returning, but for me itís just another game that we have to win. I know that sentiment and emotion plays a big part in football, but this must be put to one side and we will concentrate on playing a match against a team who we should beat. Yes, Iím looking forward to a great atmosphere, but Iím more interested in getting into the next round of the cup. I went to Wembley in my first season with Newcastle and it was an unbelievable experience, I want more of that and my focus is on winning games that will get us to Cardiff. We are the home team, we have a great team, we are at the top of the Premiership and they are a Fist Division team - we shouldnít be worrying about City, but concentrating on playing well ourselves, They have some good players Ė Wanchope and Goater, but are also missing Pearce and Benarbia so everything is in our hands.
