US captain and midfielder Claudio Reyna was back from his injury timeout and gave a pretty good account of himself in Manchester City’s loss to the Spurs yesterday. I saw the game on FSC and Reyna was quite impressive teaming up well with Kiki Musampa to give City’s midfield a boost. But they just did not have the quality forwards to pass the ball to. The Spurs were everywhere with the Keane and MIdo show taking over.
David James used his large and gangly frame to make some gravity defying saves keeping City in the game. There was an unforgettable moment where he came charging out of goal trying to outdribble Mido, only to be stranded way out in front. He was lucky that Mido flubbed the chance. But I can see why England is excited about James being their goalkeeper. He is a great athlete. Just a bit unpredictable.
