    Greg Cunningham

    He has played for quite a few levels for us up to u-19s and made his debut for Manchester City today. Anyone watch? How did he look?

    The game is still on, he came on at half time at left back and got booked after two minutes.

    I watched the match, hard to judge him as Scunthorpe ran out of gas with about twenty minutes to go.

    He was a striker in underage levels in Galway and they converted him to a full back at City. He was very highly rated here before he went over so Im delighted to see him make that sort of progress

    Didn't do much wrong, but didn't have a lot to do either. Wasn't really in the game, apart from the early booking, and made simple passes when he had the ball. Very little came down City's left side so he didn't see a lot of the ball.
    Always good to see a young player make his debut, and Mancini seems to be giving the better youth players their chance in recent games.
    Hope he can push on from this.

    Not the best footing in the world on him and i doubt he'll be a forward thinking left back. With a bit more bulk on him he might be better at centre back. His glancing header from a corner sent the ball into the danger area costing City one goal.

    Sounded like a well grounded lad, seems to be enjoying his time at City. Good to see him get the chance, long road to go yet though Im afraid.

    Comes across very well. He's obviously held in high esteem anyway! Hope he can go on and keep improving.

    Wayne Bridge out for a few weeks after a hernia operation - http://www.mcfc.co.uk/News/Team-news...fter-hernia-op - should see Cunningham into the matchday squad while he recovers.
    Scored a penalty in the shoot out last night VS Bolton: http://www.mcfc.co.uk/News/Match-rep...s-v-Bolton-Res
    U19 striker Sam Sheridan scored Bolton's opening goal in the 1-1 draw

    City have Garido and Silvenho (sp) to cover the left full position so I would be surprised if he is included.

    It was his league debut, good for him. Mancini clearly rates him.
