Come on City, time for a win and a crushing one at that in the league. I've gone for a goal bonanza with a 5-1 home win so I hope that I haven't overrated our chances tomorrow!

Taking my 2 year old daughter with me today. Thus far she's been to City 6, Pompey 0, and City 4, l'arse 2. On current trends I am hoping Kevinho's 5-1 is the correct score!

A must three points, no offence to Burley, but we could boost our GD today.
