Cause for optimism, ctd.

Oliver Holt in the Mirror has a very similar article to Martin Samuel's in the Mail - reminding us that the future is still looking pretty good for City:

But if ever a match was a metaphor for a changing of the guard in English football, it was this one.

If ever a performance from a losing team sounded like the rumble of a train in the distance, it was this one.

Because amid the magnificent bedlam of this classic encounter, City provided the proof that not only are they breathing down the necks of the big four but that they are bearing down on the champions themselves.

On the evidence of their performance yesterday, City’s grand project to conquer the Premier League is a lot further advanced than we thought.
