i would have put my house on the fact that that would be the very first comment on here. lol so who is stupid enought o play a so called "reserves team " on the 1st day of the season. i think you mean you had the quality of the reserves. at least its better than having no players which is what will happen when your new owner gets banged up and his money taken... for a thai guy he doesnt half act like a true manc utv

I dont think we could give MOM to a defender when you let 4 goals. Villa did play well, but they scored when we were going for the win after equalising. We played right to the whistle and the introduction of sturridge and Ireland injected some energy into the side. Well done Villa but I would be worried about the villa defense who will meet far better attacking side than City. Well done to City for not going to Villa for a bore draw and actually making a game of it. The scoreline a bit unfair on City but Villa deserved the win.

City81, if that is your best english i suggest you go back to school. As for our defence i admit we let in sloppy goals, but that was more to do with arrogance at playing such a poor team. After the third goal went in the whole team went into showboat mode - ashley young was taking the pi$$ out of your whole team, even in his own area. In a tighter game against decent opposition we'd be more disciplined. Anyone remember the thread about City out singing the villa...... Sh!t support my lord, **** support.......
