Robinho targets title

Bold words from the Brazilian:

"The club have set their sights high this year and backed that up in the transfer market," said Robinho.

"There have been great additions - now we need to understand we must be stronger mentally.

"If we can be like that this season and have what it takes to go for the title.

"The more I think about it, the more I think this year must be our year."

We have certainly started well. But before anyone gets carried away, consider what Martin Samuel wrote in today's Mail:

There has been much excitement over the perfect start to the season made by Manchester City. Four wins in four games with no goals conceded are not to be sniffed at, but it is too early to get carried away.

City have played Blackburn Rovers and Portsmouth away, Wolverhampton Wanderers at home and Crystal Palace in the Carling Cup. The minimum requirement from those fixtures would have been seven Premier League points and victory at Selhurst Park.

Anything less would have signalled trouble ahead. City have exceeded expectations but are not even close to the hard part.
