If a week is a long time in politics, I'm not sure how you measure this past week in the life of Manchester City. Faced with two crucial 'six-pointers' at the bottom end of the table and a tricky home fixture against Everton on the back of three defeats, we have managed to turn things around with a nine point haul which has hoisted us up into the top half of the table and generated some confidence that had clearly drained from the side prior to the Christmas period.
“We got in their faces man for man and showed more- Stuart Pearce.
energy than them. And from our leaden footed first half we looked like we were
the ones on the front foot and full of running.”
"I think we played well enough in the first half to go
on and win the game.
"We hoped to do the same in the second half. Manchester
City changed, and they upped the tempo a little bit, but for us to concede at
the start of the second half was really poor." - David Moyes.
