A great article and a fair reflection of the game! Its unusual to see such an unbiased review on a fans site. I'm a Man City fan and struggle to read our own fan sites at times, they're so ridiculously blinkered!! Anyway, best of luck to your boys over the season as I think your definitely the most realistic chance of stopping them red bastards winning the league again


Good article. Deco was useless and de Jong must look forward to playing against him again. Cech needs to assert himself more in the area and catch the ball from crosses. His punches are weak and led to their first goal. As for the second, well...You're also right about Carlo. It seems to take him a while to realise what's happening and then there's not enough time left to make a difference. Another recent manager would have sent the artillery in.


Good, well written article although I have one incy wincy issue and that's the essien and de Jong comment, I think in a few years you'll be eating those words. Nigel is an absolutely fantastic player, he almost single handidly played essien, lamps, deco and ballack off the park! Anyway lads hope you beat the other London team(not
arsenal) to 1st! And good luck for the rest of
the season. City fan.


Ancelotti should of fielded J. Cole and Malouda instead of the ever so slow Ballack and Deco. City's midfield were just too quick.
