Johnny On The Spot: A BIG point for Manchester City and Mancini's men will leave WHL the much happier of the two squads. Spurs, with their wealth of established talent were always going to have a right go at us at home and it's great 'keepers that can be the difference in situations like that first half where Tottenham kitchen-sinked us... Hart was imperious with the entire City back line, playing much less narrowly than last season all working tirelessly for the cause. Kolo Toure, shorn of the captaincy probably had his best game for The Blues...Mancio's Italian 4-5-1 which we are likely to employ for big games on the road slowly took a grip in the second half as City began to dictate the pace and increase possession...Of City's three debutants, the jet lagged Silva looked classy and YaYa Toure grew in stature as the game wore on...As Spurs ran out of ideas, Mancio maintained the 4-5-1 and whereas Lennon, SWP and Barry maintained predictably dreary England form, Adam Johnson again showed great promise in a restrained cameo. Harry will be rueing his side's failure to have put this game to bed, but the baptism of fire Spurs gave City was repelled then controlled by a robust looking City side. It will be fascinating to see how City play when set up with more freedom. An enthralling contest.

Look at that possession stat, City done well to retain possession like that considering they're apparently a team of individuals

Trying to find the silver lining as always Bluedub. Am no fan of the Spurs but it was easy to see that MCFC was comprehensively outplayed today. Mancini is so risk averse on the road that most of your matches outside your stadium are super drab affairs. Sorry if you find that offensive, but its true.

Should have been the usual 3 points for the Spurs against City today and yet again at WHL a keeper plays a blinder and deny us. We need to finish teams off. I dont see *****y doing anything, a bunch of assembled pre-madonnas who wont have a clue how to play together

61% possession says they can play together. If that was the worst we can do - wait until you see the best. Sorry arpant but your comments arpants.

@johnny http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/eng_prem/8901397.stm. During the period City pressure (first 10 minutes of 2nd half) the 2nd half possession was ~40-60, and that was the period city had the ball the most, so that stat is impossible.

You're both right about stats. The Sky and BBC stats are totally different.

Be interested to know who provides the BBC's stats. FDC are the official PL stats suppliers. I've asked our pals at City Media who provides the clubs Match Day Centre figures. I'll put the answer on here. Important we get the right facts!

Today proved that spurs will have a better season? I really am lost for words when someone makes idiotic statements like that. Today proved that Spurs are more settled and match fit than City are at the moment, that's all. P.S. Joe Hart had a blinder, but that's what we pay him for, so whine about your finishing, not how lucky we were! @arpant - I don't normally like to be pedantic and pull people up over their spelling on the internet, but WTF is a Pre-madonna? Is it Ms Ciccone before she became famous or did you mean primadonna?

Good possession of the football from us, and over time once we start to understand each other more we'll turn that into more attacking intent. Roll on Balotelli

Possession doesnt mean anything, it isnt how much possession you have, it is what can you do with that possession and City (much like everton) did squat with that possession. You only had more possession because you had Yaya toure, Barry and De Kong, who are 3 DM in the middle and all looked ordinary to be honest
