Mackay's men made history on Sunday as they became the first Bluebirds side to win 10 successive home games with a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in front of over 20,000 fans - a figure they have topped in every one of those 10 victories.

And the City chief believes the impact of those supporters as well as the ability of a squad that includes the likes of Peter Whittingham, Craig Bellamy, Craig Noone and Tommy Smith have been huge factors in earning his side a place in the record books.

"Our fans come here every week and put an atmosphere into this stadium that can make teams tentative from the kick-off," he said. "You have seen that a few times when we've caught teams cold this season.

"I have got exciting players that want to play football and exciting players that want to go forward and pass the ball.

"That allows our fans to create an atmosphere which means teams come here knowing they are in for the game. And that is very pleasing.

"It (the record) is something I am very proud of and something that builds momentum."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
