There's a hell of a lot that needs sorting but it is three points in the bag. At the moment we just want to keep winning until the summer then there has to be big changes.

In some ways I was relieved it became a competitive game because it was fucking boring for the first hour or so.

If only, we could be 'outstanding' like Liverpool were today, according to Brendan Rodgers, in defeat and not scoring mind instead of being awful, only scoring 3 and winning all 3 points.

How do you travel unconvincingly?

We scraped it.

hubby wants to know (he's only come to support City last 5 years, don't ask!  ::) ) why is it regardless of how much money is spent , that it's totally different players, managers, City's  playing style doesn't change? Er blame the tea lady ? Seems to be the ethos of the place? 
Still reeling from the fact City scored last goal from a corner!!! :o

Think back to some typical City wins from the past and you'll get the picture - get a two goal lead via an opposition howler and a good free kick and then contrive to throw the game away in the last 20 mins or so and scramble a late winner. About as unconvincing as it gets.

As goat has already mentioned, Hart's two biggest flaws - judgement on crosses and distribution - have been there since he first arrived at the club and I think it's fair to say they're not likely to improve now. I didn't like his post-match comment that "sometimes you come out and just don't get there" - nope, that's an error of judgement, it doesn't happen by chance and for the first goal he was yards away from getting the ball and ended up in no man's land.


Kolarov played well, he is rumoured to be one of those to be shipped out? Cant see him wanting to stay in anycase if Dzeko and Jovetic go.

I was pleased for him when he scored as one bloke near me did nothing but slag him off for the whole game, at least he had to shut up a bit when Kolarov scored.

Ta Brendan...

I've always thought Kolarov was an important member of the squad. I know he has his faults defensively, but  he's one of our more positive, attack minded players - and he does deliver. Better than Clichy in many departments.

A good three points but a very unconvincing performance. Villa had more possession than we did which is unthinkable really.  Pellegrini reckons we've got our confidence back! Who is he trying to kid! 

The guy I sit next to reckons he's heard Viera will take over next season or sooner if results go down hill.

I thought Viera didn't have the qualifications and therefore can't take over?
