Fortress Eastlands Finally Falls

Fortress Eastlands Finally Falls

An Arsenal side playing football on a different planet have finally ended City's Fortress Eastlands league residency...

The Gooners should have been out of sight by half time, such was their dominance in a game that saw City work hard and do well to gain a fightback foothold. But ultimately class told and the creditable unbeaten home league record has ended. It's taken until February for that to happen. Unthinkable 12 months ago.

Seven months into The Sven Revolution, like all the other sides outside of the so called big four, we can gauge our progress whenever we play one of them. Clearly, there is a hell of a lot of hard work and continued squad rebuilding to be done if City are to compete with a side like Arsenal on an equal playing field. They were not at full strength today.

Hard work has been all about what this City season has been built upon. We have a young side and a small squad still finding it's collective feet in the Premier League and some performances have put us in dreamland.

But in reality, recent poor results, including the failure to beat Derby County have left us staring down the barrel of a mid table place by the end of this difficult month unless City can rapidly rediscover the coherence and the determination that we know they are capable of.

Fair play and good game it was. There's good signs in the game and I think your team will pick themselves up soon. Hey you guys would want us to beat ManU to the title wouldn't you? :)

Honestly I hope your boys beat Liverpool to fourth spot. Obviously though the season is catching up with your players now as Sven can't rotate a fairly small squad. Good luck anyway, especially against manure next week.

So we go face to smacked arse with Taggart and The Evil Empire next sunday. A ridiculously timed fixture with everything stacked against us. A no win situation. And now no Elano or Corluka.

Difficult task awaits sevn, On another topic about the transitions, I did not understand how he sign with the 17-year-old player a loan for one year, what we expect from him in one year to do ?i He very young & does not have the experience, Also about the another player I read little about him, It does not have a good record for a striker, And I did not find for him any tape in YouTupe site !!!

We are up against it, city 81. As for the transfers, I think Filippo Mancini's one year loan signing is a favour from Sven to Filippo's dad who is a friend of his. As for 19 yr old Felipe Caicedo, he's been tracked by a lot of big clubs and City have gone for it. We shall see what he can do next week!!
