'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fixture Day Has Arrived

It hardly seems as if the 2010/2011 season has finished and next season`s fixtures have been announced and there are some mouth-watering ties. Unfortunately I can`t mention them, all I can do is post a link to them and maybe mention one or two. Well here is the link.

If we look at the first day of the season which kicks off on the 13th August 2011, City have, no disrespect to Swansea, the easiest opening game of the season, playing the newly promoted Welsh side at home. Following hopefully from a good preseason and another victory over the Bitter Reds in the Charity Shield a week before, City can look forward to three points and a good few goals come the final whistle.

With a resounding victory over Swansea behind them, Mancini`s men can quite possibly be top of the league after the first game of the season and set out their stall early. If they can carry their momentum into the second game of the season, away at Bolton, six points after two games with at least five or six goals for and none against is a distinct possibility.

So there we have it, my analysis of the first two games of the season. I would like to mention the Derby games and games against Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool our main competition, but that will, for fear of divine retribution, have to wait for another day and another article.

But to finish on a high, I think that even if the squad isn`t strengthened, the league is a distinct possibility for City and with the opening games they have been gifted, I think they will be there or thereabouts from day one.
