    Lads,

    Come on, Cornish pasties?! If you are going to do it, do it right! A nice Hollands meat & potato is a touch more Manc!

    As for the forecast, it seems like City are everyone’s second favorite, but it think that is

    A) because everyone else seems to have bought more players, and
    B) because it is so rare (and difficult) to win it in back to back seasons.

    However, if any club in recent memory has been better prepared to do it, I don’t know which. City have strengthened in their only weak spots, and have re-signed their top players to long term contracts. All is well in the camp, Manuel “This Charming Man” Pellegrini has created a system and a framework for success…regardless of the line-up, and he has ready made replacement for every position whether injuries or lack of form raise their ugly head.

    I don’t know of anyone who has them outside the top 2 in one of have most competitive seasons their may ever been in the Prem, so they will, as you say, be there or there abouts. Here’s hoping it is “there,” and they lift the EPL trophy yet again! Or, barring that, I’ll take second, the FA Cup, and the Quarters or Semis of the CL.

    The future is BLUE!

    City have a solid chance but Chelsea should be strong as well.
