There won't be too many teams that will be going to the Etihad this season and picking up points, so to get that game out of the way with a point in the bag is a decent result. We were 10/1 to win there, which tells you how unlikely the bookies thought that it was that we would get anything but a hiding.
We just have to keep going out and picking up results. If we can keep beating the teams below us and pick up at least a point in each of the games against the top six, of course we will be right up there in the mix. Of course there will be a few hiccups along the way, but we just need to stay focussed and keep them to an absolute minimum.
I'd settle for doing the double over the shite right now.
