I thought Wolves were going to be a certain casualty to go down as well, but with two wins in a row now, could make a good fight of it. Portsmouth under Grant, again he`s a talismanic figure and despite his criticism when he was at Chelsea, certainly had a great time there. Took them to the Champions League final and only lost on pens, put them back into the championship race and nearly pipped Man.Utd for the title, all that from a manager that took over in the second half of the season! I think Portsmouth will stay up and get the home points they need and pick a lot of good draws on away games as yesterdays game showed.

Looks like City's Top 4 ambitions are over.Sodding Spurs,sodding Harry Redknapp,sodding inconsistency.
All anger aside,I just think we really havn't got it right.Hughes has been very smart with the money and made some great signings(in particular Craig Bellamy) and some awful decisions(selling Richard Dunne),but the side just hasn't gelled and people arn't trying hard enough(Robinho in particular).

I think you're being a bit hard on City. Expecting to break into the top 4 at the first attempt with what is basically a new team is asking an awful lot.
Look on the bright side...youse got a game in hand and only 6 points off 4th spot, with a long way to go and everything to play for.

I will say that this years Premiership is one of the best so far with lot's of twists and turns. The top 6 is a lot more open than ever for a change.

Chelsea's name is all over this seasons title.
United 2nd and it's anyone's guess for 3rd and especially 4th.

Chelsea are far from convincing and although they have been good in parts they also look very vulnerable too. I have this odd feeling that the scum will shine through and pip it again and for once it would be deserved. Not one single team this season can take any result for granted.

Chelsea are playing badly and winning. When they hit form they look unbeatable.
That's championship material.

As for the scum winning it...Villa have no chance!

I hope Brucey pulls his finger out in January and gets us a new left back. Our defence is shakey to say the least and George McCartney has to be the first to go. Same old shite again against Villa and in the last few weeks in general. Looking rocky at the back to the point a one goal lead (if we even get that, of course) will never be enough and putting rubbish, rushed crosses or long balls into the box at every opportunity going forward.

Bruce looked as though he had us playing differently, with more confidence. Attacking full backs, trying to play through the middle and open defences up but the last few games it's been back to route 1 stuff. Hopefully he can get it turned around again soon.
