If the Blues somehow manage to finish 4th in the Premier League this season, chances are we will look back on Garreth Barry’s late equalizer as the most important goal City has scored since promotion back to the Premier League.
The City performance while visibly poor, and perhaps aided by some poor officials decision, can count as a job well done. Stoke is a very tough side to break down at the Britannia, and City’s late flurry of goal scoring chances despite not having Carlos Tevez or Craig Bellamy available, speaks highly as to the motivation for this current City side.
A less resilient and determined team would have lost last night. This result bodes well for City’s 4th place chase. Ultimately, I still believe has too much quality and historical pedigree to be overtaken, but should the Blues actually achieve this lofty ambition, we will look back on Tuesday’s night’s draw as the key result.
