Johnny On The Spot: Micah Richards went from hero to villain inside 10 minutes today. A terrific late winner looked to have sealed a throughly professional away City victory, only for him to be caught out of position bunching City's solid defence in the centre and allowing Stoke in through the back door to Planet Blue's total frustration...However, City remain in 4th spot with a mouthwatering Champions League decider coming up against Bolton, yes, Bolton before a run of games which City must surely be looking to capitalise upon and win in style...We learnt plenty about this City side today, moreso than in that superb win at Fulham...Stoke away is a fixture dreaded by the league's footballing sides and as usual Stoke carpet bombed The Citizens resolute defence initially, but slowly found themselves up against a City side prepared to mix it and dish it out in equal measure...Some of City's possession football and interchange of passing was again full of confidence and sumptuous. There is much to take heart from even though two points and ground at the top have been painfully lost...

After the first 20 minutes when they bombarded us and could have scored one or two, I felt we played well. Especially the second half, it was all ours but like against Brum we had problems splitting their defence open and creating chances. Micah's goal was great and we were cruising after that, we had the ball for something like 5 minutes, just passing it. Then yet again brain lapse and we threw away a 5 point lead in 4th. Moments like that have already cost us this season and if they continue could be the difference between 4th and 5th place (or dare I say it 3rd or 4th / 2nd or 3rd / I won't go as far to say 1st or 2nd). A draw at Stoke is not bad at all but the manner in which it happened is a stab in the heart for us City fans.

Im never confident going to stoke. Im always happy with a point because of their cave man football tactics. The sooner they get relegated the better.
Sheikh Mansour
we really do struggle with stoke every time so at least we came close to winning this time, we're good enough away and now need to focus on getting it right at home

HAHA what are your comments now filthcolumn... Keep spending millions on mercenaries who doesnt give a f..., you will nothing, but hey u are used to it.. Wont be long til your sugardaddy dumps you on the sidewalk with a bad taste in your mouth, suck it up lads.
nordkap
nordkap go and ***** in your clubs community page incase if there is any..Dont ***** your rubbish here...

"Gutted" is the word. That's the second time this season we have thrown points away in the 90+ minute (Sunderland the other). Having said that, a point is not a bad result at the Britannia (ask Liverpool).
Thaibluefan
Agreed Thai, I think that really we were all expecting their goal once we began playing around instead of attacking. Migraine eh!!!
Oziman
Hey Nordkrap, nice to see you calling me out. For your information I have a social life and am not always available to post comments to make your sad little life complete. Still, despite the hangover I am nursing this morning it's nice to know that I've made a difference to your sad little life and that you miss me when I'm not around. TTFN.
fifthcolumnblue
FCB as much as i always disagree with you that was a nice comeback, I wouldnt have bothered because nordkap didn't make much sense in his comment tbh. A point against stoke is good, not a easy place to go and i thought stoke played very well aswell and could have took all 3.
P.Avfc
So I guess this weekend saw normal service resumed, right? We're top of the table, best attack in the Prem, chelsea trailing, and all you rest pretending to know anything about football..heh.
