Third A Distinct Possibility

Third A Distinct Possibility

Manchester City gave themselves a real chance of Champions League football next season following their 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers last night.

City pulled further away from their nearest rivals Tottenham and now boast a decent four point gap having both teams played 33 games. On the other hand City has a game in hand over Arsenal but lag five points behind. The question of course is, 'can MCFC bridge the gap?'



The run in:

Manchester City

Sunday 1 May
Man City v West Ham

Saturday 7 May
Everton v Man City

Tuesday 10 May
Man City v Tottenham

Tuesday 17 May
Man City v Stoke

Sunday 22 May
Bolton v Man City

Arsenal

Sunday 1 May 2011
Arsenal v Man Utd

Sunday 8 May
Stoke v Arsenal

Sunday 15 May
Arsenal v Aston Villa

Sunday 22 May
Fulham v Arsenal

Tottenham

Saturday 30 April
Chelsea v Tottenham

Saturday 7 May
Tottenham v Blackpool

Tuesday 10 May
Man City v Tottenham

Sunday 15 May
Liverpool v Tottenham

Sunday 22 May

Who if any has the easiest run-in?

I really think we can catch Arsenal up. If the Rags beat the Gooners and we beat both West Ham and Everton then its 'game on'.

Let's just concentrate on consolidating 4th - anything more than that would be a bonus as far as I'm concerned. Must admit that City being City, I'd prefer us to finish 3rd so we don't have to go through the terror of the qualifiers! :/

it is a possibility but it's obviously out of our control if they beat Man Utd and a couple of their other games

Nothing can be ruled in or ruled out, but Arsenal look to have lost belief and key players have let them down from superb positions. If they cannot galvanise themselves and end up losing to the rags, then I can see them caving in further. City are moving with spirit in the opposite direction. Mancini clearly has the team well focused. Heads down, keep getting the job done and see where it takes us.

Come on, we are only ever a draw or defeat away from Spuds being right back in the mix. Last season they pulled a rabbit out of the hat by beating us, Arsenal, Chelsea and United all within the last 8 games. We should keep our heads down and make sure we are clear in 4th for when 'Arry's hot and cold cockernees come to town.

The luxury, if you can call it that, they we have is that we are comfortably clear of Liverpool right now. Spurs have to battle with keeping their focus so they don't get caught and making sure they play in Europe next season while also listening to rumors that their manager is gone over the summer, and the possibility that he will poach half the squad wherever he ends up.

This weekend can be a good one for us. Chelsea beat Spuds, Stretford beat Arsenal and we beat West Ham. End result? Seven point clear of Spuds, two behind Arsenal with a game in hand. And that's only concentrating on the next match!

I'll take that ped - but don't forget we are CITY and it wouldn't surprise me if all of those results were reversed.
