Bollox!! Well done Tottenham, Harry Rednkapp and congratulations to all you Spud fans out there.
tudor
Yep, good luck to Spurs in the CL. Time for us to tighten up the squad and get ready to go again next season.
Johnny Baguette
thanks lads.....it was a great duel all season
lillywhites101
As much as I hate to say it but Spurs were the better team and deserved the win. Oh well, at least we qualified for Europe as well.
tudor
unlucky guys. next year hope you guys knock arsenal out of top4 ;-)
yidinchina
thanks for taking the result on the chin city fans, good game which overall we were the better team, unlucky to you guys and a great fight all season, no doubt it will likely be the same next season, the biggest bonus of all is it aint liverpool, good luck to you for next season, CHAMPIONS LEAGUE!!! i can't believe it but damn it sounds great. COYS
spursman79
unlucky chaps i dont like the way your club is going but i love your fans and your vital site sorry it was you guys were the ones to go out hopefully you will take arsenal out nxt season
jljyid
Thanks for the kind words jljyid. It is appreciated especially when you feel as though a big hole has just opened up and i'm falling down it never to be seen again. We'll bounce back thats for sure.
tudor
Hats off to Spurs, the better side on the night won. Good luck qualifying for CL. Don't do an Everton.
bluedub
no worries tudor i am sure i will be posting on here over the next season and wishing you guys well apart from the obvious 2 games and theres no harm in being a gracious winner no matter what reputation us "SPUDS" have
jljyid
Gutted..... but fair play the Spurs,to beat Chelsea/Arse in a week and then to come to CoMS and do us,you deserve it. good luck. As im sure we will all say.. as long as it wasnt the Pool. Next year you never know... it may be the Arse and the Pool miss out. Heres hopeing.
belfastblue
Top class City fans.
Clive 49
I was at the 2 FA Cup Finals in 1981 and you top class then as well. Just a matter of time before you overtake Man who.
Clive 49
well played city a great battle and i agree with jljyid your supporters are amongst the best and very gratious (spelling) in defeat and really hope you stuff the arsenal next season. you never know but maybe it will be a battle for first between us next season
norwichspur
It's been a great match up all season and it came down to 90 minutes in a one off game. Luckily for us we just had enough to hold you off but you've also been great this season and unfortunately someone had to miss out and respect for being so gracious in defeat. See you in the Champions League 2012...
Phartman87
Have to offer commiserations to you Man City fans I support Tottenham but you are a very good side and supporters and don't worry you will be right up there and good luck in the future.
Uskok
ye'll be there next season lads.. genuinely, the best of luck to ye
Tottenham 4 TheTitle
Unlucky lads, your time will come im sure of it. MASSIVE respect for all things City
HuddersfieldYiddo
belfast blue - with Chelseas and Utds aging squads, Utds & Liverpools debts and Arsenals mismanagement in never buying anyone i think all 4 places theortically could be up for grabs. Good luck next season mate
HuddersfieldYiddo
Well done Spurs - a bridge too far for us.
Thaibluefan
When The camera picked up that little lad in the crowd crying because Citeh had lost, my heart went out to him, but I also thought, hang on son I,ve been waiting much much longer than you for this, His time will come as sure as it will for all Citeh fans good luck for next season, I will only add give my regards to Pi ,,ed again once he has finished crying in his beer, to the rest of you top top respect.
Born&BredSpur
I look forward to getting our revenge over spurs by knocking them out of the Europa league next season. You do get into the Europa league if you go out in the qualifying rounds don't you? ;)
fifthcolumnblue
In the group stages if a club comes fourth they do not qualify for the Europa League, they simply go out of the competition. Its the club who finish third who get a second bite at the European cherry.
Tudor
Barry's injury was quite possibly the difference-maker. Whilst he was on the pitch, City always looked capable of snatching a victory. After he left it, City produced nothing.
Albarnista
Hope your right Huddersfield yid..........I hope your right.
