It's obvious that the 6-1 would've had a negative mental effect on our players, the recent 4-4 against Everton too. For Monday the City players are not intimidated. This match is a chance they never thought they'd get, it's an huge opportunity for them. We need to let them know that the true opportunity is only to escape from the match with their health, not points. Biologically, this leads us down the path of coordinating a Haka-routine to display just before kick off. Obviously the Haka itself is only relevant for the Māori people, so we'd need our own version. I don't think doing it to United Road would be suitable and we probably wouldn't be able to persuade the Etihad to play it in the background, so the only real option we have is the players chanting. But what? Imagine all our players lining up around the centre circle and screaming and punching themselves. It would be incredible and would give us the mental edge in such a finely balanced match. Nobody wants to start tackling upon players who have just performed a Haka, something I've witnessed with my own senses. The key is execution, so please express any ideas. Rooney and Valencia are my candidates to lead the routine.
