The six changes that Mark Hughes made for tonight's League Cup clash won't have done themselves any favours for their futures having failed to beat Brighton tonight having created shedloads of chances. Cup games are all about getting stuck in and making your advantage count. Something City failed to do. A timely feet on the ground for all concerned and plenty to re-focus upon for Sunday at Wigan.

To Alphieblues - I expect your nose bleed has stopped by now but I bet your backside is bruised. What a bump coming back to earth that must have been:-) Seriously tho, commiserations, we did bad as well. Or should I say again!

Gandor..Not a bad thing to get out of the CC we were still a round behind everyone else and had already played five Uefa Cup matches with another one coming up next week. I can't think of any Premiership club that takes it seriously.... Oh by the way Buzz did he not jump OVER the ball for the first goal ?

What gets me about this game is that so few fringe players came forward to strike a claim for a regular game. Sturridge should have thrived in this challenge but seemed to be largely ineffective. Tal Ben Haim did not come over as a reliable defender, getting caught out of position a few times. Obviously a very disappointing game. Last night I couldn't believe it. Tonight I remember all those other times our wonderful City has fallen at hurdles like these. The thing is that the team created enough chances to win comfortably and just did not put them away. But well done Brighton!
