"The good thing is that City know we're here now and we're not going anywhere".
"Fingers-crossed we don't lose anyone". That's what we all aim for, and I am looking forward to it already.
"It wasn't just the way we won - we had so many clean sheets on the run-in - it was ridiculous - and won our last 14 games".
"There is a togetherness we have throughout the whole club".
