City 1 - 0 Plymouth: Happy New Year!

Another win for City, and we've collected 10 points out of the 12 on offer over the Christmas and New Year programme. I'd have bitten your hand off for that at the start of December. As we had an early kick off today, other results are still to come in, but I reckon the worst we can end up today is 12th, and we could stay in 10th if Wolves lose and Burnely don't win.
Decent game today I thought. A goal from prize asset Joe Ledley was the difference on paper, though to be fair I thought Argyle were poor, and sub Steve Maclean had two gilt edged chances late on to seal a more emphatic victory for us. Kevin McNaughton had an immense game, and was in the view of the little crowd we sit with easily man of the match, though the official MoM went as it usually does to the goalscorer. Roger Johnson again was superb, but generally everyone played well.
Officially it was the last match of on-lone keeper Kasper Schmeicel's loan spell from Man City, although a little bird suggested to me today that Sven may let him stay a little longer, and he might, just might, get a loan until the end of the season. I hope he can - he's superb, and better than any of the other keepers we've got at City with no disrespect. He made a couple of good saves including one at the death to keep a clean sheet today. He got a huge and well desereved reception at the end of the game.
Looking good. C'mon City!
