OK that's clear, yeah?
The long term future is about the 2012/13 season and the forthcoming summer, the short term is about securing a Champions League spot.

Let's face it, if, after we play City, we are looking at our form being WWWWWWWLW we would all be quite happy I would have thought. I have a sneaky feeling, based on Mancini's tactics in the corresponding fixture last season, that a draw may be the result.

The chase for ECL qualification is now a contest between Newcastle, Chelsea, Sp*rs and Arsenal so rather than looking around us we need to focus on what we have to do, get another run going and cross that line.
Keep on running
