City huffed and puffed but couldn't find the net. Sadly, goals from Andriy Shevchenko and Oleh Gusev gave Dynamo Kyiv a significant lead to take to Manchester. But, just as long as Roberto Mancini picks an attacking line-up in the return leg then all we have to do is find the net three times, avoid letting them score and we go through. It's not going to be easy but we CAN do it. Believe Blues, believe!

We deserved to lose, there was just nothing cutting edge about our attack. Like you said, huff and puff. Silva has an off day meaning there was no creativity, and between them Tevez/Balotelli/Dzeko had about 2 shots. Don't think we will pull this back, it'll probably end up like Hamburg and we'll get 1 back then hit the post/bar 3 times and not get the job done.

It was only when Tevez came on for Balotelli that City started to eke out some decent chances, and Dzeko came to life. Kiev showed City that quick accurate passing and finishing is the key, but as usual City started like a tortoise on fire.

we need to focus on beating Reading on Sunday to get to the FA Cup semis and if we do that then it just comes down to giving it our best shot against Kiev next week and if we go out then so be it, it would at least free up a couple of weeks in the run in.

Slow, boring and predictable till Tevez came on...as per usual. What's with the short free-kicks with 2 minutes to go, FFS!!

Opportunity missed. We looked solid and strong for first half hour and if anything were undone by our own by now traditional tactics. Dynamo defended deep and hit us on the counter. I think we lost it in central midfield. Gave them too much space and time to think. NDJ will stop that off in Manchester. We ain't done yet.
