VMC's Some Might Say: It's Not Over Yet

VMC's Some Might Say: It's Not Over Yet

It's advantage Stretford as City crash at Swansea. Post Match Reaction to frustrating defeat in Wales...

Roberto Mancini:

'Swansea played very well for the first thirty minutes. They were aggressive and had a lot of possession. Later on in the first half, and then the second, we controlled the game and had some chances but we should have scored. Then we made a mistake at the end and conceded their goal.

'We had plenty of chances in the second half, but if we create chances we need to score from them! If you don't and you also make mistakes, like against Sporting, you can pay by conceding a goal. I don't think we deserved another result like this, but now we can do nothing.'

'There are ten games to go, and it's important we start to score and win again. Some players may be tired after seven months of the season, but I think we have a lot of energy to get back to the top.

'It all depends on us...We have to be strong, when you are at the top it is easy, when you are not, you have to be strong.'


Brendan Rodgers:

'We respect every opponent we play, none more so than Manchester City. They have gone away to Tottenham and Manchester United and have had great victories so we knew coming here today this was going to be an incredibly tough game for us because of the level...We retained our positivity...we scored one and created other chances and when we had to defend we defended well.

'...we have hurt teams and that's something that's been proved over the last couple of seasons. Even against the best teams we believe that can cause problems so today was a great victory and a terrific goal to win the game.

'Scott Sinclair is one of the reasons why we are at this level and Joe Hart is arguably the world's best 'keeper so there's nothing against Scott with the penalty.'


Micah Richards:

'I'm gutted. I don't think we turned up today. We didn't really work hard. We didn't play our football and in the end Swansea probably deserved to win the game.
...It's a shame because when you've got so much talent on the field, we should be coming here and taking the three points with ease.

'We always knew coming here would be diificult. We spoke to other teams. They are a very good passing side as you saw today.

'The atmosphere in the dressing room is down...We've go to pick up ourselves up. We have an important Europa League game on Thursday. We've lost two games in four days and we are not used to it. Our mentality is winning.

'...We always knew united were going to be on our backs. It's disappointing to drop into second place after being top for so long.

'But it's not over yet.'

This just keeps getting better, we have Spurs fans with their minor victories over City losing, do you realise how pathetic that looks Hotcore? I guess it can't be that easy to focus when you're in freefall eh?

Can't believe you get this 'spud troll' infestation on this site too. Christ...it could have been at epidemic proportions if they were still "title contenders". Only the Spuds can be choking and still laugh at another side's blip.

Good God, the "COYS" *****s still come out to play when they're crap? And here of all places? I thought all the crowing was just because of their high league position. Oh wait, who am I kidding, it's always been like this. Good luck for the rest Citizens (the Chelsea fixture excluded of course)...

Not sure what grounds a Spurs fan has to troll us on based on recent events? 4pts from Spurs last season, took their Champions League place. 6pts from Spurs this season, going to finish above them no matter what happens. And Spurselona now have Arsenal and Chelsea at their heels so Champions League football isn't even assured.

Who knows indeed Nicskter. U*d drew 2 and lost 2 in their final 10 games last season, so who's to say that won't happen again?

if U*d lose Shrek they are doomed - he appears to be almost single-handedly carrying them at the moment, and if English teams would learn to attack the way Bilbao did, then we'd see a lot more U*d defeats - unfortunately they don't, as everyone still seems to be ***** scared of them, despite the evidence suggesting that they really are just scraping along at the moment! As to hotcore, well mate, Arsenal are 1 point behind you after last night, and Chelsea only 3. Wonder how your trolling will look when you end up playing on Thursday nights next season?

Rooney is overdue getting sent off, nevermind booked. When does his FA sending off ban expire?
