What A Week For Manchester City

After so many years of hurt, this week proved to be the week where everything went for City. It all started on Tuesday night where a Peter Crouch own goal saw City through to next years Champions League. Yesterday, City had a superb chance of winning their first trophy for 35 years as they were to face Stoke in the FA Cup final at Wembley and for the first time in a long time, they were favourites heading into a final.

And then finally, although a lot of Man City fans and players might be too hungover to even consider this but because Arsenal lost today against Aston Villa, City are now just two points behind the Gunners with a game in hand.

After Tuesday nights success against Tottenham, every City fan was more than confident of winning against Stoke and on the day, no disrespect to Stoke, but  they just proved too strong for the Potters. Silva had two golden opportunities to put City ahead but he just didn't keep his head and Sorenson made at least two saves that were top class.After his semi final heroics against Man United, Yaya Toure obviously wanted to make sure he was a crowd favourite as he scored again after some nice play from Balotelli and Silva.

Man City now have a great chance of getting automatic qualification into the Champions League next year with Arsenal losing to Aston Villa today. Darren Bent's two goals were enough to secure three points for Villa, or from a City point of view, prevent Arsenal from getting three points. Now although it doesn't sound too easy a task, all City have to do is beat Stoke on Tuesday and then Bolton on the last day.

So City fans, what do you make of the past couple of days? What are your expectations for next year?

I would love to hear any comments you may have.
