Crisis ....What Crisis ???
Well what a funny old game this is, and what a difference 90 minutes can make.
Earlier this week there were calls for Pearce to go, but after this afternoon's 2 - 0 win against an equally under-achieving West Ham, Psycho has got himself some breathing space and the wolves have retreated from his door... for now anyway.
The game wasn't a classic by any means, but who cares, the result was all important today; just ask Alan Pardew who tonight has probably swapped places with Pearce as the manager most likely for an early bath - those 'fantastic' Argentinian signings don't look quite so clever now do they.
A couple of special mentions:
1) Samaras for proving that he does have the ability to become a top class premiership marksman
2) Ishmael Miller - awesome performance by the young lad and proof again that the Academy lads are one of City's best assets
And I can't really forget to mention the Gaffer - well done Psycho, it's been a really tough week.... take tomorrow off - you've earned it !
