Three second half goals from Dzeko, Toure and Aguero in a ten minute period secured a comfortable victory in our first Champions League group game.
Well that has got to be a relief, I know it is for me. It was very important we won tonight, not just because of the Champions League but for our confidence.
For the first 10 or 15 minutes tonight we looked ok, nothing amazing just a bit better than we have been, then we went quiet and let Plzen into the game pretty much for the remainder of the first half, the half finished with a feeling of disappointment.
The second half had hardly started when we struck through Edin Dzeko and that goal was the beginning of a better, more determined City performance. The game restarted and we were playing well with it taking just five minutes before Yaya banged in our second, we had finally started to peak and after another five minutes of playing good football we scored our third goal thanks to Sergio Aguero.
The second half was brilliant tonight, it was like someone had turned a light on and the players could see how much better they can be. We were organised, we worked hard and we were focused on the task at hand, Plzen didn't know what had hit them and couldn't handle our talented team.
The best thing about our second half performance is that although we were good, we were still not running at full speed, the potential of our team is scary we just need to start realising that potential and if we do I think we will go a long way in every competition this season.
Hopefully this victory has released some of the pressure that's been on the players lately, as well as give them confidence heading into what is already an important game in terms of the title race.
