Game Statistics Wrong! Wolvas had more % then you guys, Tbh you got ripped apart!
Yids, Arse, Chelski lot - please don't say a bloody thing!!
They only come here when we lose Tudor, so unless you have your moderation hammer handy, expect plenty of it. ;)
Hammer at the ready Stu.
You with The Wolves, blitz? If so, fair play to your team and gaffer.

Congrats to Wolves, fully deserved three points. They showed good fight, something that was woefully lacking in City's performance, the opening 15 or so minutes aside when it looked as if we could give them a hiding.
Blitz - you're right they had more possesion, but "ripped apart"? no need to exaggerate mate.
At least we don't have an incompetent referee to blame, just our players. Poor Spurs, just got shafted by the Big 4's 12th man, Clattenberg, in one of the worst decisions in football history.
come off it stuMCFC, man ure have been the most hated club in the world for years, just because you have now taken over that label ( well in england anyway) people get great satisfaction when you lose because, well you know dont yer, you'll get used to it!
Surely its quite concerning that without Tevez you lose you're attacking edge and therefore suffer as a team. Unlucky though, we all have bad days at the office.
TheFamousNo7, I would say our main problem today was not the frontline, as Adebayor looked fired up and was waiting for service and Balotelli was exciting until our team went to the dogs. The problem, besides some sloppy defending, was an unbelievably lazy and lethargic midfield performance - Milner, Barry, Yaya were all very poor and Wolves seemed to run through them. Never have we missed De Jong as much as today. If our midfield was strong, we could have won because Adebayor and Balotelli were both playing well for a time.
Fair play StuMCFC i haven't seen the game so will have to take you're opinion on it.
will have to get our act together pretty quickly with 3 hard games in 10 days
According to the BBC those stats are correct, but it doesn't matter - we lost and deserved nothing from this game.
I didnt watch the game (as I was watching Everton's) bi=ut can any city fan tell me how Balotelli did? Wanted to know how he went in his debut in the PL. Oh, and unlucky today, everyone has their off days, and judging by the comments seems that you had yours against wolves
Balotelli looked like a monster for the first 20 minutes or so. Involved in everything, having a chance or two. Then the collective team performance went to hell and Balotelli gradually with it. His legs seemed to go, he was very sloppy, losing possession, petulant and stroppy, an obvious substitution if there ever was one, yet in one of Mancini's most puzzling moves since coming to City, he took Adebayor (one of the few who actually looked up to it) off instead and Balotelli kept playing ineffectively.
Balotelli has been out injured for 3 months, and it most certainly showed in the second half. It will take him a few weeks to get up to speed, although he showed enough in the first half to indicate that we've got one hell of a player on our hands. Think it was a mistake to start with him though, and he should have come on as an impact sub later on in the game.
Man, I watched the highlights, and Balotelli is a spitting image of Micah Richards, they look identical to each other
