City's Mancini inspired Xmas resurgence has been noteable for it's focused team ethic. Carlos Tevez and Gareth Barry have spearheaded the charge earning richly deserved applause...

Barry has been growing in confidence and stature again and 12 goal 'El Apache,' well, he's been simply stunning.

Across the team, players like Barry, Tevez, Micah Richards, Vincent Kompany and Martin Petrov already look happier under Mancio's guidance after two tough challenges were overcome with 5 goals to the good and 2 clean sheets taking City into 2010 in 5th place with a game in hand.
