City Throw Down Euro Gauntlet

City Throw Down Euro Gauntlet

A brilliantly professional performance at Newcastle saw City silence the away day win obsessed sports hacks whose frustration continues as City remain a top four side...

In Iceman style, I will say that City outclassed Newcastle for the second time this season tonight and in doing so, threw down the gauntlet to our realistically UEFA Cup rivals Everton, Villa, Pompey and Blackburn. Er, and Liverpool? Who would have thought this last summer!!??

Sure, the Champions League places that we have troubled all season remain a dreamland to continue a dalliance with, but we all must keep our feet on the ground after this brilliant start to 2008.

Just as the statistics relentlessly piled up against Stuart Pearce, they are doing so in the other direction for the superbly astute Sven-Goran Eriksson. That's only two Premier League defeats in sixteen games and only four defeats all season. Stunning.

The squad Svennis is building are coming together steadily and we are now in a position to top up our half full glass of Blue magic with a couple of campaign boosting signings.

What a confidence building victory to take to West Ham United in the FA Cup.

Well played, Blues!

Oh yes, and Allardyce for England.

Steady as we go, lads. So far so good, game by game the Svennis way! Difficult not to get carried away by the brilliant position we now find ourselves in, however! I've been saying for some weeks that when this side starts to click again, the football will flow. January and February hold some tough assignments. With reinforcements on board we can look ahead with real confidence.

Good win City. Looks like you Everton and us for a possible Champions League spot. Alot of debate on Vital Villa on whether Liverpool can be beaten to it this year and I think one of us can do it. BTW - I bought Elano and Bianchi in my 06/07 Football Manager team before you bought them and they did really well. Funny how things turn out!!!!

The pressure is building inside Liverpool - the phone-ins are taking 'Benitez out' calls (ridiculous). Clear however that the septics will haul his ass out if they fail to take fourth. Personally fifth spot remains realistic in a three way with Everton and Villa.

I fear Everton and Liverpool more than the Villa and Portsmouth for that 4th spot but I'm very hopeful with better players to come in. Just imagine if Nery settles in and becomes a success! Bring on WHU.
