Wolves 0 – 2 City

Having picked up mum from Carlisle and then having a family roast dinner, I decided to record this match and watch it after the meal, so I warned fellow Blues with whom I normally exchange texts during games not to text, and then mum, Billy, Raji and I watched it together. I hoped we could beat bottom of the table Wolves, but our away form isn’t great so I wasn’t completely confident. However, City had excellent incentive to win as Everton had miraculously managed to score 4 goals at the swamp to hold ManUre to a draw (after being 3-1 down as well!) 🙂

We played a good attacking line-up and the match started brightly with both teams playing well. Frustratingly City missed 3 excellent chances before finally scoring half an hour in (Aguero) making me very nervous – and poor Billy and Raji had all my nervous squeals, frustrated sighs and mutterings in stereo as mum and I echoed each other 😀 Hart made at least two good saves to keep it at 0-1 for the half time break. City wavered for a while which did little for my poor heart, but then managed to sort themselves out and start playing again – and got their reward when Nasri scored our second goal – making me breath SLIGHTLY more easily. Wolves didn’t roll over and die though and it remained a game to the end – happily we kept the 3 points, though I’m sorry it sent down a team I like in the process.

If I was nervous about derbies before, I feel positively sick at the thought of Monday’s forthcoming one… we’re 3 points behind ManUre with +6 better goal difference, and there are only two games to go after that. City have to win it to stay in the title race…
