Johnny On The Spot: You cannot argue with a 1-4 win away from home and in point of fact, City played this game in all aspects the way that top sides have tuned us in many previous seasons...At times The Citizens play was scintillating with fluidity, intelligence and crisp one touch passing the order of the day...Much was made of the rival managers in the build up and it was interesting to note two more facts: Mancini got the team selection spot on and the balance perfect. By contrast, Hughes had no Plan B and did not employ all three substitute options mirroring his time as City's boss...There were numerous outstanding Blues performances. Kolarov at last gives us a strong left back with options and a dead ball threat that will only improve as he becomes fitter and gets his eye in...Tevez led the side superbly and Kompany, Zabaleta and particularly Barry were immense. El Apache has now scored 38 goals in 53 City starts with 9 bagged already in this campaign...It could have been an embarrassing scoreline at half time but to their credit Fumham stuck at it and their fans gave them staunch support...City's travelling army were richly rewarded and it was heartening to see Mancio round the players up to applaud them at the final whistle...On this evidence City are contenders and know now that nobody in this league is invincible. This is shaping up to be an exciting season.

Brilliant performance, it all clicked today. Not many differences from our so-called "negative" approach (= myth. We've not been negative, just lethargic and lacking sufficient tempo and energy), just that the players played at their true level today and gelled better than they have so far. As Jamie Redknapp said, the first half performance was possibly the best in the league this season.

Only 8 shots on target? What a load of boring defensive rubbish. Mancini out, I'm sure we'd all prefer Mark Hughes back no wouldn't we? Who's with me? Guys? Anyone here?...

Shame about Zaba's yellow card - he's out of next weeks match. Just hope Boateng's ok. Wouldn't like to see the daydream believer in there

At least we can be guaranteed Delap versus Boateng on throw ins!!
