How good are we?

Quiet day news wise so just a couple of bits picked up from around the websites.
Seems that Geert de Vlieger may well be on his way in the summer after he confessed to be non too keen to continue with life on the bench, according to Sky Sports.
"I'm too ambitious to be happy sitting on the bench for much longer," said De Vlieger. Let's face it, he isn't going to dislodge David James anytime soon, so an ideal scenario would be for him to share back-up duties with Nicky Weaver before going on his merry way in the summer when hopefully Weaver should be back to full match fitness.
City are apparantly riding high in fourth place in The Times entertainment table. Not come across this before but it apparantly ranks sides on the basis of on goals scored, shots on and off target, the number of times the woodwork has been hit, corners for and fouls against. I'm a bit unsure of the relevance of this to be honest but if things are that entertaining why are there rumblings about the atmosphere?!
Young Jonathan D'Laryea has joined division 2 basement side Mansfield on a months loan, joining the likes of Willo Flood and Karl Bermingham who are currently gaining experience out in the Championship.
Not checked out the Actim index for a while but good to see City players still featuring highly, with David James second in the keepers rankings, Joey Barton and Claudio Reyna in the midfielder chart, with Darius Vassell and Andy Cole likewise in the strikers one. One gripe though - why isn't Sylvain Distin in the top five defenders, let alone not in the top 100 and behind Danny Mills, Ben Thatcher and Trevor Sinclair?
