|Never Forget QPR|
Written by widnesblue on Friday, 9th May 2014 10:53
So here we are. One game left of the season and sitting proudly at the top of the Premiership. It's been a long road but we are are where we are after what has been an exciting season so far with some incredible performance from City at times. Last night was always gonna be tough against a team with the pressure off. A team that had boasted all week how they were going to come to the Etihad and attack City. How they were going to do Liverpool a favour. This was the message from Lambert the Villa Manager and various players. The reality was they "parked the bus" (which seems to be the in way to describe a team who play ultra defensive). Villa wasted time not at all unlike Chelsea's performance at Anfield the other week.
City seemed to struggle at first and seemed to eager to get the breakthrough but as the second half started the blues seemed to be refreshed and played with a calmness that was always going to finally get the one goal we needed. But we didn't just get the one did we? Zabaleta played like a man possesed!! He is really a player that in my eyes is what City are all about. "WERE MAN CITY, WE'LL FIGHT TO THE END" Dzeko proved his worth with his two goals,before Jovetic scored in style and Yaya went on his fantastic run from deep within our half to score a beauty. That beauty also being City's 100th.
So at last i feel i can believe. One game left and two points clear. But and it is a big but....we must never forget QPR.

Matchday #3, and Robbie’s not happy. I know opinion is divided, but I have considerable sympathy with the Chairman on this one. I don’t want this to be necessarily a political comment, but many are looking on with bemusement as the government seem to lurch from one knee-jerk reaction to another during this crisis, and I would be saying this of any government, regardless of their political persuasion. The nub of Robbie’s comments is quite simple, what’s the point in having a panel of experts working closely with responsible club owners to plan supporter’s safe return to essentially open air stadia, investing in alterations, changes to layout, developing detailed procedures etc. to then have the rug pulled out from under their feet? I know why, a second wave seems to be coming, and frankly it looks like people simply can’t be trusted to follow the rules – but why then are pubs still open, or does the virus only come out after 10pm?

After last weeks’ solid point away against Bradford City, tipped by many to be strong promotion contenders, we now face another stern test against fallen giants Bolton Wanderers. Okay, giants may be stretching it a tad, but these guys have won the FA Cup four times, the League Cup twice, and the Charity Shield and Football League (Sherpa Van) Trophy once apiece. Christ, they were in the Premier League just eight years ago. But, they are where they are for a reason, and Saturday is all about 11 v 11, literally on a level playing field…

So here we are, the drôle de guerre is over, the real battle is about to begin. Can we take any positives from the opening exchanges so far? I think so, the style is good, albeit Noah is right that the work in the final third needs considerable improvement if we are going to capitalise on our tippy-tappy triangles in midfield. But we’ve played some decent sides, far better sides than we should expect to face in League 2, and we haven’t been beaten out of sight yet, so let’s see what today brings against a side I think will be there or thereabouts come May next year.
