I give up. City bottle it (again) Palace 1-0 City

OK, I'm done with the optimism. I'm seriously hacked off as City manage no point from 6 as they throw away the points against an average Palace side.

I can't believe we're going to have to settle for a play off place (at best), but the way it's going, that'll be as good as it gets.

Away at Palace tonight chances came and went. In other matches, City looked to be slipping down the leaderboard (again) as the Jacks, Forest, Norwich all went ahead, only for the Jack and Forest to be pegged back. At the same time City got a penalty, only for Peter Whittingham to hit a woeful penalty against the post, and Palace, inevitably end up grabbing a winner.

It's bad enough not being able to break down and beat sides like Ipswich and Palace, let alone throwing away glorious opportunities such as penalties when they present themselves.

It really feels like City are bottling it. I hate to say it, but you have to wonder.

City have been their own worst enemy this season, spurning chances, playing with an arrogance on occasion that other teams have just buckled down and ignored, worked together as a team and run rings around our 11 individuals.

I don't know what to say any more.

Never mind, maybe Jay Bothroyd will say "it's all ok because we played well and we'll definitley go up."

Get real.
