How High City?

How High City?

The question on every Blue's lips this coming weekend is how high can City go in this extraordinary season as we open the next chapter of 'Sven's Book of Revelations..'

City now stand only 8 points behind our record Premier League points haul which was achieved back in the 2004/2005 Fatty Fowler penalty miss season with 12 games to go, having passed all other pisspoor totals.

That's a measure of how far The Iceman has taken us after seven months in charge.

Going into the Everton Euro crunch game on monday night, confidence is clearly sky high post the united double achievement.

The team can step out knowing they have made history now and if they can maintain the level of performance sustained at the swamp, anything is possible with The Blue Army behind them, ready to raise the roof.

We've all had chance this past week to stop the clocks, take a step back and appreciate whether we are really here or not.

As the squad have taken a well earned break, the good news has kept on rolling in. Johnson, Castillo and Bojinov nearing first team action. Sturridge continuing to bang the goals in and Caceido demonstrating his power by also scoring his first goal in an MCFC shirt! The icing on the Eastlands cake is the brilliant Joe Hart earning recognition from the Italian England manager no less and rightly so. Indeed, our latest poll has also revealed that our MCFC Vital visitors foresee at least 3 of our young players representing their countries before too long. What a credit for the club.

Suddenly Svennis and Hans Backe have options all over the park as our mini season of 12 games begin.

Swimming safe amid this sea of knowledge, this correspondent sees no reason at all why we cannot make European competition.

Outside of the Everton six pointer, the revenge mission over Chelski and the trip to Liverpool, the other 9 games are against clubs outside the current top five. What an opportunity!

The biggest factor in our favour will be the steadily improving state of the playing surfaces as the spring approaches. This will suit and assist City's playing style.

The second factor is revenge fuelled motivation. Everton away was a garbage performance and Chelski need no introduction. Both sides will encounter a very different Manchester City, I'm sure of it.

Everything is in place for the Euro charge. Time to go over the top Blues. Sing your hearts out for the lads and see you on the continent!



Johnny Baguette is heading for the hills and will be back on line after the Wigan PieTasters game.

I forecast a finish on 66 points how far this will take us I am not sure. Are there any stataticians out there that could tell me if that is good enough for a top four finish ???

According to Chris Bailey, If Chelsea win the League Cup, then 7th place will qualify. Also in his article he says that an average of 57pts has qualified for 7th. So Alphie if you are right then 66 points should get us 6th. Lets root for Chelsea for the cup.

Well done Spurs, they have had some difficult draws and deserved the win. It is good for football that a different team has won this major trophy. Things are bow building up in our little league and we need to be strong, but we need to score goals, this may well depend on goal difference and we are at the moment adrift of everybody.

With a bit of luck the Toffeemen will be suffering from a UEFA hangover which hopefully will result in us getting three or four against them.

The only thing that makes me wary is the points split between the top half and the bottom is getting wider and this year 66 might just get sixth place. Conversley they say that 40 points avoids relegation I think this year it will be more like 35 points will avoid relegation.

First thing today is Kuwait National Day, Becouse that must Eriksson and his man win today to make a double happey to me today, Second, alphie the teams in the botom of the table they not be in same level when the end of season start, They will be hard & Fierce, Remmber Portsmouth before two season when they won in 7 of the last 10 game, also West Ham in last season, The bad thing we will play with six of the bottom teams & The four of them will play away .

Don't worry city81 it is usually only one team in the relegation fight that puts a string of victories together so that should see us get three wins out of four against them. With another three or four wins against the rest should see us to 66 points which is my forecast.... HAPPY KUWAIT DAY TO YOU...
