Well where do I start, I list all the names of City fans who attended the match from the North East of Scotland but it would take too long, a really great turn out – well done – pity about the score.
I’m writing this in the airport after the game and young Shay McGillviary has just had his photo taken with Mancini – nice gesture Roberto!!
Speaking of Roberto, although nobody wants to pick the team, most along with myself reckon Carlos Tevez should start every game, he is more than capable of 60 games a year
and is the teams most influential player, certainly the most consistent, and maybe serious thought should be given to this matter
While I’m whinging we might as well get rid of the Ballotelli subject – time he was dropped, not good enough for this squad and has failed to convince the fans lately – big time.
The game – I haven’t seen any percentages yet but we certainly had the majority of the play and didn’t score enough, some of our football especially in the second half was a good as we’ve played all season., Zabaleta (apart from the first goal), Tevez, Nastasic, Silva even Nasri played well but we didn’t beat what is really a poor United side and that’s important because I still think we used the wrong players to start with. I don’t even think United necessarily wanted it more than us either, they got the rub of the green and three points.
I don’t think a 6 point gap is worth mentioning at the moment and its 2 years since we last lost at home which is a great achievement in itself, hopefully the manger & the team will treat this as a wake up call and onwards & upwards in the remaining games.
I’d just like to say that was a great performance from the boys in blue, was so proud, the rapists were lucky!!
