Banking on 6 points at home, I think we'll still need at least 4 points from the other 3 away. Given where we have to go, coupled with our away form thus far it's looking highly unlikely but you never know. Shame 'cos I've a taste for Europe now!

There's still a a chance. I want to see City go hell for leather for this. Nothing else matters before the end of the season. Ireland, Onuoha, Petrov, Bojinov, Given, Robinho, SWP and Robinho have the appetite for it so why not?

I think it's too much to ask - for me the Fulham game killed any hopes . . . . .but you never know with City.
