|Never Forget QPR|
Written by widnesblue on Friday, 9th May 2014 11:09
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.

Matches of Yesteryear - Exeter v U's 27/11/91 by wessex_exile
So, back again after my break for international duties. With our ongoing exploits in two of the three domestic cup competitions, it’s nice that the random match selector has chosen one of our earlier forays into a cup competition – albeit the one competition we’re no longer involved in this season…
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.
Matches of Yesteryear - Tranmere v U's 12/1/02 by wessex_exile
Well, after a tremendously exciting week for U’s fans everywhere, what better way to calm things down than remembering the daily grind of league football.
