Man City are not too good to go down...

It's very nearly that time again when fans of clubs who are too near to the relegation drop zone start to cast worrying eyes at the league table and the fixture list. West Ham, Watford and Charlton have been pretty much mired in the brown stuff all season, of the three perhaps Charlton have a chance of surviving sliding down the dreaded greasy pole and into financial meltdown and The Championship.

One set of fans who probably didn't think their club would be where they are now in the league is the Man City supporters, but for good reason, not so long ago they were known as 'a yoyo club' because of their regular sojourns into the nether regions of lower league football, at one point they were on the verge of dropping into the old third division.

Since their latest return to the big time and over the last few seasons things have been a lot better with Keegan bringing a measure of stability to the club. However, the current manager Stuart Pearce now finds himself and his team just one place above the drop zone and out of the bottom group of clubs, City have what looks like the toughest remaining games. Sure they have two games in hand on the rest of the bottom clubs, but they have to play the top four sides and no points from those games could see them in trouble.

United face City in what could be our second to last game of the season, the Reds might need to win to secure the title, City fans would love it if they could stop that happening, but into the bargain the Blues might also need something from the game to stay up, the possibilities are intriguing to say the least.

One thing is for certain, Man City are not too good to go down, City fans would agree of that I'm confident.
