A draw and a loss for Manchester last night. City are hanging on by a thread and may fall short of The Invincibles (to whom they are being compared in the league) in Europe, who reached the quarter final stage and now its London’s turn against the Germans; or more specifically North London, as where Chelsea are concerned “Frankly my dear I don’t give a damn”. Talking of Chelsea, they have announced that Anelka can go in January for around £1m. Could it be time for Nic to ‘come home’? As I said yesterday, with Chamakh in Africa we could do with some established cover up front. Stranger things have happened.
A Win tonight and we are going to the next phase. Lessons learned from previous campaigns point to us trying to finish the job tonight, but lest we forget Dortmund are German Champions so it should be a good game. With Fulham at home on Saturday at the utterly frustrating ESPN driven time of 5:30 and the Carling cup tie next week we have a good seven days to make progress in three different tournaments. No bombast, just let's see how we get on. These are the good times.
