Could and should have finished them off in the first half. Blackpool's fresher legs almost cost us in the second half but we stood firm and secured another shutout and a vital 3 pts.

No bookings!? Wow, Clatterburg almost had a decent game today. Should have wrapped this one up early, with Tevez particularly guilty of scorning at least 3 decent chances as well as the penalty. Must have been the orange boots he was wearing!

Well I was there and we bossed nearly the entire game except towards the end we became very complacent and Blackpool could have snatched an equalizer. We missed so many chances that I was waiting for the "Typical City" moment and if not for a couple of great saves by Joe, it might have been. Worryingly, we seemed to dry up as a unit after Silva's injury, I'm not sure we have an able backup for him, and wonder if we may try to buy one.

Yeah we really started too become more unsure about ourself after Silva got injured and gave blackpool enough space and confident for them too start attacking.

There is no two ways about it Silva is the engine that drives us and without him we tend to cruise ....
