Cause for optimism

Martin Samuel, who is more supportive of the ADUG project at City than most, has a rather positive piece about us in the Mail today:

The better team still won at Old Trafford on Sunday, but City's performance demanded respect. They have won here in recent years, but it has always been in the manner of the underdog, raising their game to meet the occasion.

On Sunday they lost, but as equals. Do not be fooled by Manchester United's domination of the second half. United can safely expect to dominate every game at home, regardless of the opposition.

The fact that Manchester City drew level after going behind on three occasions, the fact that Craig Bellamy scored the two best goals of the game, the fact that it took United until 16 seconds from the final whistle to put the result beyond doubt are all tiny victories for Mark Hughes and his men.

And that is what City are about this season: tiny victories.
