Johnny On The Spot: Manchester City supporters have every right to be concerned tonight following as spineless and spiritless non performance as they come in Nottingham today...City were poor in every department. Devoid of shape, guile and any semblance of organisation, Roberto Mancini's players allowed the game to drift hopelessly into the hands of a third tier bordering on fourth tier Notts County who surely could not believe what had turned up to play them...Of course, City starting with 10 men didn't help. Jo's inclusion is beyond belief. He has no control, no spark, no skill, no nothing and this correspondent will challenge anyone to point to statistics or instances that prove otherwise...Amid today's team that played like strangers, in particular, YaYa Toure again faded badly, Joleon Lescott is going backwards and James Milner looks limited...Yet in fairness, to a man City did not look as if they wanted it enough on a shocking playing surface. Except for Micah Richards, that is. Were it not for his charging will to win, we would be wallowing tonight in what would have been, considering our resources and standing, the club's worst ever defeat...This must never happen again. Rockets need to be fired repeatedly before we travel to Birmingham.

Well done Notts County, good spirited display and fully deserving of their draw. Too many below par performances in City the team. One shining light was Micah, great game from the lad. Silva also did well, as usual, when introduced.

Milner is a total waste of money. He doesn't want it enough. Today was a day when he should have taken County apart but he tries to play Opta Stats Football. Verdict - exit door. In the end despite what you say Jo probably did more, but like Milner doesn't want it enough. Verdict - exit door.
