Johnny On The Spot: Roberto Mancini and his City squad will be as non-plussed as the sun soaked Eastlands faithful as to why The Blues didn't steamroller West Ham out of The Premier League today...They set off like a train and threatened to run up a cricket score, only for complacency to set in which allowed The Hammers to battle back into a contest which made for uneasy Blue eyes, mindful of the gulf in class yet frustrated by City's profligacy in front of goal as chance after chance went begging...YaYa Toure and David Silva looked the pick of City's attacking intent and both deserved a goal or two for their efforts...Whereas City now have one foot firmly in the Champions League door in racing seven points clear of fifth placed Liverpool, West Ham have now lost five straight games and look doomed to relegation. Their loyal fans deserve far better...Back to City, and Nasty Moyes and bitter Everton are next up on Merseyside. They are sure to provide a stern reminder to The Citizens that this race is not yet run despite a resurgent past fortnight which has put Planet Blue in close contact with long held dreams.

One step closer, well played lads. Nigel's first goal a memorable moment! Shame he was injured, seemed to be hobbling badly after the game. :/

Very entertaining game and the Champions League is getting closer every week. Mancini made some bold decisions in taking off a defensive midfielder for a striker - he wanted this win badly.

Great goal by Nigel, pity I failed to make the bookies before the match, have stuck a few quid on him scoring for a good few weeks now - DOH! How we didn't end up with a cricket score is beyond me, 21 attempts says it all. Hope Nige is not seriously injured, we'll really miss his grit against the likes of Everton and Sjoke. On another note, Zabaleta took a bad tumble at the end of the match and had to be heled off. Not good.
