'If It's Football, It's Vital'

VMC's Some Might Say: City Beat Champions Again



Post Match Reaction to City's shrewdly solid 1-0 win over Chelsea from the Eastlands movers and shakers and the VMC Forum history makers...

Roberto Mancini:

City's dapper gaffer was his usual cool for cats self in summing up a massive win:

'After 5 games Chelsea had scored 21 goals. They are a fantastic team. Our guys today played a strong, strong match. We closed all the space for them and when we had the chance we played football.'

Carlo Ancelotti:

The Chelsea boss made it clear that he rates The Citizens:

'We didn't play how we wanted. We suffered from the pressure in midfield Man City put on us. We didn't have the possibility to show our quality...City had a very good performance. In midfield they used a lot of power. Man City deserved to win. Man City have a lot of quality to fight for the title.'

Vincent Kompany:

City's classy defensive giant was in defiant mood as ever following another superb marshalling of the defence alongside Kolo Toure:

"There were fourteen players on that pitch, more on the bench, and thousands in the stand who just refused to beaten. Today is already yesterday as far as we are concerned... Tomorrow is now the only day that counts."

Nigel De Jong:

City's midfield cage fighter underlined this City side's resilience:

'We knew that we had to win today...we just have to work hard and continue this. From the first minute we put the pressure on...If you saw how we defended from the front to the back that's why we kept a clean sheet.'

johnkelv:

"All the players put in a shift and the goal was fantastico. Now back in the race lads."

StuMCFC:

'Our three best performances in the past one to two years:

1. vs. Chelsea
2. vs. Chelsea
3. vs. Chelsea

If we played like today every week, we'd be title contenders for sure. Absolutely brilliant.'


robinwho?:

'Absolutely brilliant!'

Buzz Lightyear:

'Unbelieveable. Once again we did a job and Chelsea were not over us, a deserved win in my books.'

Thaibluefan:

'Just back from the pub. Even had the Rags cheering - SUPERB CITY.'

Ancelotti: "Man City deserved to win. Man City have a lot of quality to fight for the title." - Good to see a sporting acknowledgement in defeat. How rare is that??

Certainly makes a change from the anti-football rhetoric from Wenger and Baconface every time they lose.

JB, think we're all too used to seeing Fergusons sour, unsporting and frankly disgusting post match comments. It seems there are still some gentlemen amongst managers in the Prem, Mancini, Ancelotti, Hodgson, De Matteo and Holloway spring to mind. Ferguson is the equivalent of dogs mess in a play area. Off topic but true.
