Johnny On The Spot: Ian Holloway for England and no mistake...Having threatened to dictate events towards the end of the most pivotal Manchester City seasons in decades, The Citizens allowed themselves to be bullied into submission at Goodison Park. A fact that was not lost upon the grinning face of the watching Stoke boss Tony Pulis...City operated on a different level to Everton for the majority of the game, dancing to a Silva tune that had even Everton's anti-Lescotters applauding. But David Moyes sent out his side in the second half on a mission to rough City up big style and the moment the long balls came bombing in, out went all City composure from turf to bench. Even Vincent Kompany was found badly wanting in the face of some appalling Everton tackles...This result and performance must now serve as a wake up call for one of, if not the most important week's in the club's history considering the height of the stakes involved. There is no margin for error and if City continue to waste goal scoring opportunities they run the risk of being punished. Certainly by sides as physical as Everton, and of course, Stoke.
