Johnny On The Spot: This was an immensely disappointing City performance at the end of a more than promising pre-season. The Blues were terribly slow out of the blocks at the start of each half and afforded United's players criminal free space...City sat back far too deep all too often and ultimately paid the price for failing to establish any consistent high tempo to their play. We would get murdered in the Champions League employing that pisspoor work rate...The rags operated in stark contrast to that fact but in truth should have and could have been on the receiving end of a drubbing at 2 down with both senior centre halves off the park. City gifted this win to United and the rags know it...I don't wish to single out individually glaring poor performances. Those players will know who they are. Instead I'd prefer to take the positives from what I sincerely hope will be a huge wake up call. So take a bow Edin Dzeko for carrying the attack single handedly all game and Gareth Barry for striving to stamp authority on City's AWOL midfield. We must learn from this.

Forget the stats, City was thoroughly beaten.. Second half was unbelievable, United fielding a side consisten of mainly youngsters were able to outplay City for 45 minutes, you got a long way to go until you start dreaming about a title. Yes it was a friendly, you must be relieved by that, however your team badly needs Tevez..

Had trouble finishing my pint. No way salford should have put 3 past us in the second half. But it will make us stronger.

We had no tactics really, just soak it up and hoof it clear. Unfortunately, we were incapable of soaking it up. I'm really disappointed by the performance of Balotelli and Yaya. Not like we were the ones trying to bed in new players. We just couldn't deal with Utd's attacking threat.

Cant wait for Filthcolumn to post his normally so insightfull comments. As predicted United outplayed City with a youth team, Ctiy looked nothing like top 5 material, They were abysmal. Granted it was a friendly, and Kun was kept on the bench, I am sure he will provide a much more potent threat that Dzeko, whom will be flogged in January. Again Chelsea lost 3-1 last and went on a winning streak in the PL.
