DD, I just love the way they play, one touch easy movement, just a pleasure to watch. There are 8 players playing from last season, all of them appear to have improved or is it simply of playing them in their right positions, which was a rare thing last season. Thank you millwallj.

Buzz, how do you think Mr. Southgate will approach Fortress Eastlands on sunday? Pack the midfield and defence or go for it? Understand Boro missed a shedload of chances last weekend. Be interesting to hear how any passing Boro fans see the game shaping up.

Jb you should read Robbos blog on bbc.co.uk/football, very entertaining (a boro fan) I believe that most teams will now be sitting up in their seats. They will be afraid, we have been very hard to score against (Fulham was a daft game when we missed Dunney and his control) but now we are starting to score goals and they are coming from all over the place. Teams will be coming to get a point and will be happy to do that. Newcastle tried to attack and play an open game they paid dearly for that Boro and Brum will come for a draw and it will be up to us to prise it open. If we score early then the games will open up. We may need a can opener.

Well Buzz, I think the best thing that can happen for this City team right now is for us to get that early goal. As we are on a roll, the momentum we have and a rocking stadium could see us absolutely batter either one of Boro or Brum. Any side that can keep City quiet for half an hour or so will fancy their chances always leave us with the old nagging doubts but Newcastle did that and even scored yet we outclassed them. What a difference from the Pearce and Wigley opposition scores, now what strategy!

JB, I am from the era when we used to beat the rags regularly home and away. When we played teams then I never bothered if we went one down, I knew we would come back and win. This team gives me the same feeling. I know a lot of fans will still be in SP manager mode, but the noise from the fans is a billion times better than last season and this gives the players a lift. We are beginning to have that one goal start over teams before we kick off, if you know what I mean.

Absolutely, DD. He is a manager's dream. I think he could play any position, even goalkeeper! - Now there's an idea...!
