Johnny On The Spot: Roberto Mancini and his shrewdly rotated team sent out a stunning message to the rest of the Premier League today with a powerful first half rout of Aston Villa that reduced the second half to little more than a practice match...The sheer strength throughout the City squad was underlined with 5 changes made from the win at Newcastle, including 12 goal Captain Carlos Tevez. Mario Balotelli's coolly taken hat-trick ensured that the City talisman was not required...Hapless Villa were outclassed in every department including in goal where Joe Hart was outstanding. How hollow Stephen Ireland's bitter words of warning sound now...The next game cannot come quick enough for a City side working hard as a unit and growing in stature with every goal. Every player when called upon is putting in a big shift.

I can't believe that last season Villa were in the same bracket as City and Spurs. and now we are relegation certainties UNLESS we change the manager NOW. Apologies that we didn't even bother to turn up to give you a game today

A terrific display that turned around our stagnant form at home that hasn't been mirroring our good away form. Silva was unplayable and while Mario didn't do much except score three goals (did I just say that?), that is exactly what he's here for. Plus his attitude in general was good, no petulance and a few little smiles. Just wondering, exactly what was Milner booked for near the end?

He was booked because of Delph's reaction I think Stu, the tackle wasn't in any way cynical.

Silva. How quickly did the hacks write him off after one game at the start of the season!?? He's sensational.

As for Villa, they returned some of their seat allocation and on that evidence I can see why. They were absolutely brutal.

I think Blackpool will provide a tougher challenge. Not many teams win at Sunderland these days.

What a great performance! Every one of our players put in a shift today, aNice to see us bag a few goals at home for a change too! Krfesk - it really is astounding to see how far the Villa have fallen in such a short space of time, and I commiserate with you - it was always going to be hard once O'Neil walked out on the eve of the season though, and whilst you've got some very good youngsters, Houllier (or as I'm sure most Villa fans would prefer, another manager), needs some serious backing from lerner and your board if you're not to spend the season at the wrong end of the table.

They should have taken cash for Milner and used the extra to buy someone instead of Ireland. Said it when he left, Ireland with his never changing mentality would be lucky to impress in the Championship. In the end I feel like we got Milner for 16 mil as Ireland is worth nothing IMO, he is anonymous and spiritless in 99% of games.
