Deryck writing up
Superb game at Ewood Park, we stayed over night at the Darwin hotel and we were treated to a graet performance from the blues.
After a tough goalless first half we bagged 4 in quick succession, goals scored by
A Johnson 56, Balotelli 59, Nasri 72, Savic 86.
Johnson scored a cracking cutling shot, followed up by a KungFu kick by Balotelli.
Nasri scored late on and Savic scored a bullet header to make it 4.
The thing that stood out for me that day was the noise of the crowd. The entire stand screamed Mancini Manci throughout as support for the Tevez incident in Munich.
On the other side of the scale it was sad to see the Blackburn fans be so cruel to Steve Keane.
He comes from Italy to manage Man City
Dzeko showed just why he has become first choice for Roberto Mancini’s new galacticos with the brilliant four-goal blast that devastated Tottenham in a remarkable White Hart Lane victory.
The Bosnia striker, who couldn’t buy a Premier League goal last season, snapped up a perfect hat-trick then added an injury-time stunner to emphasise his own potency and that of the buoyant Blues.
Samir Nasri conjured an impressive enough midfield debut on his instant return to north London, but his performance – and a good few others – was totally overshadowed by Dzeko’s irresistible display.
Superb performance from City, what a player Dzeko is, 4 special goals, I find it hard to choose between the backwards header and the amazing strike from 30 yards.
Gotta love the grin on Nasri’s face after Dzeko scores again.
