Pearce CAN Turn City Around !

Although the honeymoon period is well and truly over, it seems that there is still overwhelming backing for Stuart Pearce to turn the club's fortunes around.

Now us City fans are renowned for our unwavering blind optimism, but talk of a top six finish that I have seen in some press reports, even for City, seem a tad optimistic.

We mustn't get carried away with the win over 'Boro. they themselves are no great shakes and even though we ground out a much needed and welcomed victory, the quality of the football was dire, an exhibition of 'ugly' football at its best (or worst, depending on your point of view) !

We asked:

Can Psycho Turn Round The Season?

Yes - 'course he can - 82%

No - we're doomed ! - 18%

e have another horrible looking game against a struggling Charlton tomorrow; on paper, a game we ought to be able to get something from. Charlton will be fired up for it and desperate to get the three points to take them off bottom spot.

Our away record is simply shocking reading, so expect another low-quality, workman-like game devoid of skill and flair. If City are to escape the relegation dogfight then November will be a defining month of what is proving to be yet another tortuous season. Win-able back-to-back home games against the Toon and Fulham respectively are followed by consecutive away trips to Anfield and Villa Park - not easy by any means.

However, we need to be looking to win games now rather playing to avoid defeat. Realistically we need, and ought to be able to get seven points from the next four games, but as we know all too well, football is a funny game!

It now down to the players to take a bit of responsibility and get the results on the pitch - there's only so much Pearce can do, but on the day, it's up to the players, individually and collectively to get it right.

I am surprised by the amount of soft touch foreign players he's got in his team, I would of thought he would of wanted a few more british based players who know how to fight for results.

There is no doubt he will turm it around, with most of the injured players coming back for once he will have a selection headache
