Strong team performance from City up against the Blackburn cloggers. The ratings from Manchester Evening News on this game are remarkable. They give all City players a vote of 7 out of 10, but rate Elano best player. I've never seen that from MEN before. Looking at Blackburn though, all Fat Sam's teams play the clogging way. And when it doesn't work he has a crass excuse. In this case it was "We were in control and comfortable..." before giving away three goals. Good grief, someone should buy him a dictionary. I heard him on TV the other day bemoaning all the foreign players in the game and the lack of opportunities for young English talent. Hey Fat Sam: "When have you ever managed a club committed to a youth policy?"

If his side was as good as our why are they not in 6th place? Sam said the only difference was the goals and that they were the better team.
