Johnny On The Spot: Well, well. Never say never said Joe Hart a couple of weeks back when every hack under the sun wrote Manchester City off. Roberto Mancini has cunningly repeated that the title race was finished across three straight wins that have realised 12 goals and shipped only 1...This has taken pressure off his players who have begun to play with freedom again and it has slowly eaten away at The Stretfords' mindset to the extent that they have lost belief and handed the title race initiative back to the resurgent Blues much to the certain chagrin of the rag biased London press pack this week...There was an anxiety about City today in what became eventually a routine win over a lumbering, relegated Wolves. Their Chairman was bang out of order televised enjoying a joke following City's second goal. Their loyal fans deserve better...Back to City and that anxiety was understandable considering the stunning news of another stuttering rag result beforehand. And it was the likes of Carlos Tevez and Gael Clichy's title chasing savvy that saw City through to set up the mother of all derby's in 8 days time...All the rag gloating we have taken is bordering upon implosion as a young, strong and fully fit City side prepare to welcome their ageing backbone within the city walls with many a score to settle. Bring it on!

No team spirit. Mercenaries bottled it. And so on. All the stereotypes and cliché blowing up in the faces of haters. Haha. We'll fight till the end!

Nice to have things back in our own hands. Just wish we'd taken a few more of the numerous chances that came our way today.

GET IN! Great day to be a City fan. Well everyday is, but today was particularly enjoyable. Commiserations to Wolves on their relegation and a huge doff of the cap to Everton for proving that Utd can be attacked at Old Toilet - just depends on whether your team has the balls to do it or not.

What do you reckon Gordon McQueen will do with his "MANURE 20" t-shirt now?

Did him a favour. It was always going to be a bit on the snug side.
