Manchester United Vs. Manchester City, 2011 Community Shield: Gael Clichy Makes City Debut

A Manchester City player makes his debut for the club! But not the exciting and/or good one. Gael Clichy comes in for Aleksandar Kolarov, which is clearly the most important substitution ever made by anyone in the whole history of football. Clichy wins a corner, which is completely wasted. Shock.

Meanwhile, Adam Johnson is starting to make his mark on the game, cutting inside and forcing David de Gea into a fine stop, his first of the match. The Spanish goalkeeper has to be very alert to leap up and beat the ball away at his near post - that shot was an absolute rocket. At the other end of the pitch, Nani tries his luck, but he'd be more likely to suceed if there weren't three Blue shirts between himself and the goal. It's still 2-2 with ten minutes to go in the 2011 Community Shield.

PS: Where on earth is Sergio Aguero? Argh.
