I'm impressed... City were very good. Efficient, dangerous, cool and smooth. Hamman is a master, and his quality and temperament rubs off on all. A great game by all, notwithstanding the disgraceful tackling from Sunderland and the crap from the ref.

I have to agree about bthe ref. What a terrible performance! At least he was equally bad for both teams, but surely he shouldn't be refereeing in the Premiership!?

Was pushing my luck today, pressing the record button on motd before the game finished, usually a jinx. Great Win. taking the bias about SWP away, anyone ideas who the MOM was? Watching the highlights does not actually tell the whole story.

Dont count Berti yet City81, Mr Hughes does not know how good he is yet, Nedum is injured and Zabaleta has never played in the Premier. Richards was replaced today by TBH because he was injured but not know how badly, so It would be best to keep Corluka, because not only is he a quality defender, we like him and want him to stay, but that would leave us short if these injuries are long term. However if enough money is put onto the table by a bidder, I expect them to accept it.

Wright -Phillips what a legend the bloke is, should never have left. Has been good business though 12m profit on the deal LOL

The story goes that Corluka stuck around longer than the rest of the team waving goodbye to the travelling Blues. I can't imagine he will now be so captivated by a Spurs side who have lost their way again. Looks like he's off?

Charlie must be thinking twice about his future...Does he stay and be with a very successful team or does he go and face an uncertain future...

Very professional performance yesterday. Looked good in nearly all areas, the only exception is that Jo still hasn't adjusted to the pace of the Premiership. That will come! SWP a breath of fresh air. Happy days!
