Johnny On The Spot: What a season. The resilience and determination that has epitomised FA Cup Winners Manchester City's charge into the lucrative Champions League group stage were displayed again at The Reebok today as a strong yet silky City got the job done with plenty to spare...The Blues have ended the season in 2nd place level on points with Chelsea but finish 3rd having scored nine goals less than the deposed Champions...The statistics bear out Roberto Mancini's shrewd tactical approach throughout this historic campaign. Joe Hart's 29th clean sheet of the season in all competitions across 59 games and the confirmation that The Citizens are the league's 4th highest goalscorers underline a canny balancing act that saw the team come together and fight like tigers when the chips were down...City didn't even need the help today of "The Emirates Bottlers" latest fiasco at Fulham to confirm a thoroughly merited top three finish which has been achieved under tremendous pressure...This will be a close season to savour for Planet Blue and the party has only just begun! - Tonight sees the MCFC Player of The Year Awards and tomorrow, the FA Cup & Top Three parade through the streets of our city. Typical City is dead and gone. We're Not Really Here. - On behalf of the Vital Manchester City Admin Team and the Vital Network thank you for your loyalty and support. See you in Europe!

I feel proud to be a Blue. I never thought the day would come that we finished joint second but we did. Hell yeah.

A great way to sign off on what's been a brilliant season for City. I never expected City to get third place at the start of the season, to only be denied second by goal difference shows amazing progression from last season. Hats off to all involved at the club, in particular one man who has galvanised this team, introduced that all important winning mentality and stuck the boot into the desperate hacks and rival fan who knock him at every given opportunity, Roberto Mancini take a bow. I would also like to say thanks to all the admin staff on VMC for some cracking reports and articles throughout the season. Cheers lads.

I just liked the way in the last few games, City have got rid of the shackles and taken the game to the opposition and thats the way to win coinsistantly.

Well done lads, this is a new City or we'd have been 2-1 down after 88 minutes and scrambling for a goal! Forza Mancini, look out Europe!

City have conceded the same amount of goals as Chelsea in 33 but kept three clean sheets more making Mancini's defence the best in the Premier League 2010-2011.

Thanks for the kind words Bluedub. Although you will not be privy to this but JB and I will be staying a little longer than anticipated. Here's to season 2011/12 and the title.

What a great season. To all the Mancini knockers out there - still want the "special one"? Mancini has more class in his little finger than Mourinho, Whinger and Slur alice all rolled into one. Can't wait for next season!

Cast your mind back to the match at the emirates.Arsenal had just trounced Chelsea and City had numerous injury problems.We go there and get a creditable draw.Mancini gets slaughtered by the media and a lot of City fans.Negative Italian football is the stereotypical and xenophobic comment labelled at Mancini(strange because we have scored more goals than the media darlings spurs).Mancini said it was very important that we did not let Arsenal win that match.Today's final league table totally vindicates Mancini.Forza Mancini.

To all the hacks that have given us such a hard time this year .....your Humble Pie is ready for eating.

300 million for 3rd , I bet United are gutted they had to spend 16 million to win the league hahahaha , I think Chelsea and United had average seasons by there standards and Arsenal went off the rails bigtime , The points you had normally would just about get 4th , Yes you have improved but your knowhere near the finished article , Nice to see a team rough the top end up a bit though and hope you Pool and Spurs can stop the United-Chelski normality !!! P.S is Michael Johnson up for sale ?
