VMC's Some Might Say: Blue Moon Rising Again?

VMC's Some Might Say: Blue Moon Rising Again?

Yaya Touré's 27th and Carlos Tévez's 68th City goals respectively saw off Chelsea in style. Post match reaction from The Etihad Stadium...

Roberto Mancini:
'I think for us it is not important to look at the table, just to work like we did today, to improve and then look at the table in one month...I think football is finished when it's finished, in the last minute of the last game.

'We can't think that it's finished with 11 games to go. It's not my mentality or my players' mentality and we need to play like today. Both goals were fantastic.

'I think Joe is the best keeper in England and one of the best in Europe but a goalkeeper like him can do better with the long ball. He could be perfect. It's important to have concentration always.'


Rafa Benitez:
"We did not do well in first half but it was nil-nil. We asked for more character. In the second half, we did well. If you make mistakes you get punished. They are strong. We knew it was tough. But they controlled the midfield. It will be a fight until the end...We are playing too many games, so I managed the squad.

"I have not seen the replay of penalty, but it's a clear chance, so Hart should have, at least, got a yellow card. It was a good penalty but a good save too, so credit to Hart. It was a turning point."


Joe Hart:
'It was sometimes tough but two bits of quality won us the game. We know we have that so as long as we defend well we'll be alright.

'Frank Lampard is a great penalty taker and a bit of a hero of mine. We've spoken a lot about penalties but he's strong-minded. He's not going to be put off by an idiot like me! It was a case of trying to to go the right way and get a strong hand on it.'


Yaya Touré:
'We needed to play very well today. A big, big credit to all our team today. We have 11 games to go and will continue to try to win.'

CITY ON TWATTER:

Vincent Kompany:
'That was a big win today! Great team performance that deserved a victory! #MCFC'

Sergio Aguero:
'I am not mistaken if I say we played one of the best games of the season. This team can do it and it showed today. Come on City!!'

Looking at the replay, Joe Hart did connect slightly with Ba and we would have been disappointed not to get a decision had it been A City player. however it was not a yellow as Ba had lost contact with the ball and if Harty had not touched Ba, it would have been a goal kick, right decision by the Ref.It is amazing what a bit of straight talking does, but all the press could say was that Bob swore in the presser,***** me!

What the feck is Benitez blabbing on about? Joe tried his best to avoid contact, Ba ensured there was contact, it's a penalty without question but why should there be talk of a card?

Looked a penalty and I had a great view, Ba totally played for it though and wasn't interested in the ball. Lots of dives and appalling little decisions by Mariner though, the foul count was absurd.

The same rules didn't seem to apply to both sides, especially in that first half.

A closet cockney red are you, 123spurs? You're in fine company with the thousands of cockneys who secretly or not-so-secretly abandon their local team to support football's #1 tourist attraction.

Hahaha. Sad little Spuddies reveal that after decades of supporting their underachieving wannabes, they've gone native and started supporting London's favourite team. P.S. 27 and 68 were the goal times, what's late about that? Dork.
