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.

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.
