An unreported fact

In amongst all the takeover, Robinho and Wright-Phillips focus an important fact has been missed.

We won two consecutive league matches by three goal margins.

City hadn't won a single match by a three goal margin since February 2006 (and Joey Barton, Albert Riera and turmoil at Newcastle United were all in the news).

But two consecutive league wins by margins of at least three goals?

The 3-0 win at Barnsley on 31st October 2001, followed by the 4-1 defeat of Gillingham on 3rd November. (Dunne and Wright-Phillips started both games).

And in the top flight? August 1994.

3-0 against West Ham at Maine Road on the 24th (the second game of the season), and then 4-0 against Everton on the 27th. Of those seven goals, Rosler and Walsh scored three each, Peter Beagrie scoring the other.

Spot on!

After the win at Sunderland and especially seeing Shauny back in Sky Blue scoring and celebrating... We were all ecstatic and realised that we really are a different proposition this time round. Could things get any better? Well apparently dreams DO come true! Roll on next Saturday... I'll be there, again!

Onwards & Upwards!
