There are no stats to cover how much of my finger-nails are missing, how many times I banged my head against the wall, how hoarse my voice is from shouting at the computer or how many hours I will now need to spend in a darkened room to overcome the shame of that limp performance against such industrial opponents. Disgusted.

Think a man of the match poll after that shower is a bit optimistic. How about a "which player doesn't deserve a kick in the a**e after that rubbish" poll?

lol fifthcolumnblue. Perhaps you should ask the very same question in the City Chat forum. I'm sure it prove a huge success.

44 million quid of new recruits and we still can't be motivated or creative enough to see off a 10 man side who hadn't scored at home in 4 games. Total embarrassment for Hughes to face again.

As I said in another posting if we can't win this game (and I meant against 11 men) it's goodbye top 6 finish. Hang your heads in shame guys we fans deserve better.

The stats count for nothing if you don't score. We gave Sorensen an easy afternoon. I swear he could have dozed off for half an hour with no risk.

Had a few more of those attempts been on target it may have been a different story in the papers this morning. Robinho is not looking happy.
