Hahahaha! You are nowhere near Championship winning form. Look at the difference in possession, the number of fouls you committed, the shots compared to the Arsenal! And you were at home, oh dear, oh dear. You beat us last month, what happened today? From all the lads at Vital "Top o' the table n' havin a larf" Chelsea!!

haigh_for_7, yes, because one game represents a full season doesn't it?

Chelsea had two men sent off when we beat them 4-2 at stamford bridge and they still went on to win the title. I was proud in defeat today because the lads and the manager went for a win. It was a fluke result and these things happen in football, united wasted arsenal 6-1 in 2001. Does it mean arsenal are a bad team? Even with 11 men arsenal were nothing to rave about today. ANY team that gets a man sent of would struggle to get a point, even at home. Any team! Look at the history of football. The only way arsenal can beat a top team in the past 3years in the league is when the other team has a man sent of. Otherwise they get bullied and beat, as usual. Well congratulations to them! I await their annual "fall out the league race" at febuary and the open top bus parade to celebrate their financial results for the year.

High 7 off his meds again. Very good performance by the lads today despite the result. Well done.

SM, supporting City for so long would no doubt have been an annual exercise of S & M. You call us chokers but even with the 600 million pound funding you may yet find a way to screw things up.

Vital man city thanks you for your post sheikh mansour but your figures are wrong. We have beaten the top four plus spurs in the league at least once each over the past 2 seasons without the opposition having a man sent off.

The league is Chelsea's so Arsenal should focus on one of the cups to end their own trophy drought. Also, their fans should focus on supporting their team rather than increasing their reputation as arrogant, entitled fans by invading sites designed to support other clubs.

Thanks for your resounding vote of bitchiness Stu. You talk about arrogance and entitlement when you in particular have begun behaving like a league winner already.

Have I, Deltaforce? That is strange as I don't even think we have a chance of winning the league this season and but for a moment or two have never had any moments where I've revised that thought. Most City fans do not believe we are ready to win the league just yet, but that there will be a time very soon where we are able to. The target this season is top four -> Champions League, you will find those believing we will win the league to be the minority of City fans or in fact rival team fans (such as yourself) or the odious media putting words in our mouth.

Stu, it seems clear that with all the mega investment into your club, top 4 is not what your owner will settle for. Claudio Ranieri at Chelsea was sacked for finishing second to the invincibles in 2004! The Arabs may be more benovolent than the Oligarch but Mancini needs to atleast finish as a runner up this year.

Deltaforce, you are doing exactly what the media do and putting expectations on the club that are not there. It is a very clear target for top four, which takes us to that next level where we may be able to attract the "A list" and improve our squad even more. Plus, the Champions League revenue will be vital with Platini's new rules. There is not even a whisper out of Eastlands of expectations of a title push this year. Even so, there is still no reason we can't push for second, we have the squad, have been in good form, and showed a togetherness and heart yesterday that should shut at least some of the "mercenary" comments up. This "pressure" on Mancini is largely fictional. Even the semi-competent Leslie Hughes with his "great" transfer policy was given 18 months after flirting with relegation at times in his first season. Now take into mind that Mancini is a). the new owner's choice (Hughes recruited pre-takeover), b). delivering more points per game and more discipline than Hughes' team did), and (little known) c). a good friend of Khaldoon, the chairman of our club and Mansour's right-hand man, then it may alter the perceptions of the media-influenced minds of fans not following City closely.

I am doing nothing but state the reality - you have the squad to finish runner up bought at great expense and now its Mancini's headache to get this team to perform. Finishing 5th last season was not the plan for City and its time for Mancini to make up for that. With great money comes great expectation. You cant have your cake and eat it too.
