Johnny On The Spot: To the eternal chagrin of the anti-City brigade, keyboard warriors, bitterest rivals, foaming pundits and "big four" mournful hacks, Manchester City are forging a strong team mentality and battling for an increasingly promising cause...The Blues have dismissed more straw clutchery in now losing that albatross of no league away win since Boxing Day that we kept hearing about ad nauseam. City have now recorded 24 clean sheets in 53 games. That's no messing and the Mancini message is clearly getting through...Desperate route one Blackburn away with enormous Champions League pressure weighing upon The Citizens was never going to be easy but the glaring statistic of 145 passes completed to Blackburn's pisspoor 35 in the first half shows the gulf in class that really should have seen City out of sight...Still, no injuries or suspensions shipped at Ewood Park and enormous relief will now resonate through Eastlands and Carrington on top of a wave of FA Cup euphoria with 6 competitive fixtures remaining in this long, hard working season...No reason now why City cannot have a real go at West Ham United on Sunday in a bid to drive a growing league advantage home. All of a sudden, 3rd placed Arsenal are 5 points ahead of City who have a game in hand. The next game can't come quick enough and it's time to start looking up again with relish.

Perfect time for his first goal, well done Edin my boy! One step closer although, first 30 aside, that was the definition of winning ugly.

Great result, puts that bit of breathing space between ourselves and Spurs. We showed good resolve to see out that game, promising signs for the run in. Well in Dzeko, never doubted you for a second lad.

For the first 20 minutes we run Rovers ragged and then for some reason we took the foot of the gas. Not that it matters now as we WON! Well done lads.
