Johnny On The Spot The disbelief across Planet Blue will be immense tonight. How City contrived to lose a game that we should have, and could have had wrapped up in the first half is mystifying. Two gilt edged chances came our way on the back of dominant play and had one of those gone in, you'd have put your house, car and season card on the game finishing up 3 or 4 nil in City's favour. But out came Sunderland in the second half pinching themselves at the let offs and though clearly nowhere near as well equipped as The Citizens, they gave it a right go to their absolute credit. They played with a freedom that deserted City and gaps began to appear across the midfield as City's calm assurance deserted them. And up popped an old defensive achilles heel with the conceding of a ludicrous penalty at the death. Ok, Bent was offside, but this was a collective throwaway by a City side packed with Premier League experience. It'll be a long fortnight before we welcome Blackburn where we can expect to see a number of changes as the injuries clear up. Learn from this Blues. There is no margin for error at this level and you must take your chances.

Can somebody please tell me,why does Micah Richards keep getting picked,week after week,year after year.Managers come and go,yet they still pick this massive liability.He costs us so many points and games,it is no joke anymore.

The knee jerkers are out in force again. Get a grip, do people like this actually watch football or are they just WUMS? We should have had this won at half time, didn't take our chances and were punished simples. Congrats Sunderland, kept playing for 90 mins and ultimatelty deserved it. Interesting to note the officials cocked up the big decision YET AGAIN.

Boateng will start against Blackburn. Meawnhile, it's a massive compliment to us don't forget that rival fans feel threatened enough to come on here at the first sign of a defeat. There is a long way to go and we will batter many sides this season.

amazing defeat really. The funny thing is i was only expecting 4pts from these 3 games but I thought we'd lose to Spurs, draw with liverpool and beat sunderland but there you go. Will have to be more clinical on the road this season imo.

Nothing wrong with the overall display, just need to take the (glaringly obvious) chances we had. Micah Richards proved yet again that he will NEVER be good enough, he makes Titus Bramble look positively assured. Bent may have been offside, but there are no excuses for conceding a ridiculous penalty in the 94th minute, and I can't see Micah getting a game once Boateng is fit again. Hallelujah to that. P.S. If i was Mancini I'd be straight on the blower to 'arry Redknapp to see if he's still interrested in taking Micah off our hands.
