3 league wins on the bounce and 2 away league wins in a row. Long may it continue but things are about to get a whole lot harder in the next 2 matches and we need to start converting our chances or we will pay for it.

A fascinating situation once the break is out of the road. The rags have two tricky away assignments before they face us. Spurs and Besiktas won't be pushovers. meanwhile, be interesting to see how The Gooners react at Eastlands to that morale sapping defeat at the swamp.

It's agood start but the form of the team (Given, Adebayor and Barry excepted) hasn't been consistently good enough to break into the Top . That needs to change in the next two games or City will be back to mid table.

I agree with you Kev, we need to start being more ruthless in front of goal, starting next week would be a good time to put it to practise

Kev, the more we play together the better it is going to be, don't for get these players have only been together for a matter of weeks, the teams we have met have have all basically been defensive and we have had to break them down to make them come out and play. The Rags and the Gooners will be different, they will come out thinking they are going to win, we just have to show them they are wrong.

Great win. When we start geling better in the coming months we will be racking up 3+ goals in easy like todays.

Going in to the match I was expecting a Pompey flogging, they played a little better than in past weeks got to be a little worring with the attacking players you bought.
