Good result yesterday, just as I left the ground 2 minutes early to avoid the traffic, the crowd go mad.

Missed the third goal. Fucking typical.

Great performance from Berbatov, he needs to keep it up for the 8 remaining games.

Well, I can't say I'm surprised. What is surprising though is that, as far as I can remember, only 3 manages have actually been sacked in the Prem this season, and we're into mid-March already. It's funny - at least as far as I can recall, there are usually many more than that much earlier in the season.

I am surprised. If it was going to happen, it should have been when Pearson replaced Duffen as chairman. I think that this post from a City forum I frequent sums it the situation up pretty well:

"Brown had won six league games in 51. Expecting him to win three out of nine (and even that wouldn't guarantee survival) is optimistic. It might have happened but I do hope that the present situation won't be revised in later years to one of "they'd have bloody well stayed up if they'd kept Brown". As things stood, I think it's more likely we'd have gone down than stay up. People can go on about the spirit against Arsenal all they want, but that wasn't what cost Brown his job. Had we turned one of the home draws against Portsmouth, West Ham, Wolves or Blackburn into a win, I suspect the decision may not have been so straightforward.

Brown's record against the poorer teams in the league in must-win games - this season, last season, and the Championship survival season even - is nothing to write home about. The gamble from Pearson and/or Bartlett is, I suppose, that a new manager will give us fresh impetus and galvanise a club that may or may not have become a little fractious. For what it's worth, it's a decision I back, albeit with an incredibly heavy heart.

I do hope that Phil Brown comes back to the KC at some point, or at the very least that we, as fans, get to say thanks. He has been more responsible more than anyone else for some of the best days of my life - not just my football-supporting life, but my actual 35-year-old life. I will proper love him for ever. The best era any of us will ever witness in support of the club is now effectively over and leaves an unfillable chasm. But my head knows that this is the right thing even though my heart feels like my first girlfriend has just left me for my best mate. Who's ugly. And got herpes. And doesn't like cricket."

So the 'Special One' makes Chelsea appear ordinary, but I'm not happy.
I was hoping Chelsea would progress to at least the quarter finals. Unfortunately they get to concentrate on the League. Ah well. :/

In better news, at least the injury to David Beckham won't effect our bid for the 2018 World Cup...according to England's chief executive Andy Anson.

The race for fourth place is still very well on, with Man City, Villa, Spurs and Liverpool moving up and down the table rapidly.

All I'm gonna say is: Come on City!

Bleh!

Villa (Don't see us cracking the nut, but you gotta be hopeful)

We just don't have the squad, well atleast enough experiene in the squad.

Delfouneso and Delph, two players who someday, I believe will be legends at Villa Park, need to see the field more. Delph has played a few games in the League cup and FA cup, buyt you can see he lacks the matchday experience but clearly the talent is there. Delfouneso - Well what can I say? That boy can play, tall ,strong, quick, young... I wanna see him on the pitch, not Heskey!

To be honest mate my prediction keeps changing. Villa could well be in the Champion's League next year.

Yeah you right, I guess any of the four could be.

It is such a good race, something that I haven't seen for awhile. The race for fourth is more entertaining than first (probably because the teams we support though)

Just good to see some action away from United, Chelsea and Gunners.

Without doubt the most interesting Premiership in years with a three horse race. A whole load of contenders for 4th spot, in fact the only certainty seems to be that Portsmouth and Burnley will get relegated.
