Johnny On The Spot: City only have themselves to blame for this immensely disappointing draw having collectively and criminally taken their foot off the gas when two goals to the good against a Fulham side who were dead and buried...In truth, City should have been home and hosed at half time such was the again, total domination of an opposing side. Yet Mark Schwarzer kept Fulham in it and he ultimately had a big say in Fulham earning a desperately needed point...Having conceded midfield, Mancio attempted to shore it up with Zabaleta for Silva but in doing so took creativity away at a crucial phase of the game...Still, City had enough on the park to see Fulham off but as composure returned following some poor defending and failure to play to Mark Clattenburg's erratic whistle, wrong choices were made and in the end The Blues had to settle for remaining unbeaten with a point. There can be no excuses for this one and much as all Blues knew we wouldn't win every game this season, the manner of this throw away should serve as a reminder that despite the sensational football served up again, City have to become much more ruthless.

Every time we take the foot off the gas we get punished - we must learn that whiever we're playing, however much we're leading we can never become complacent like we did after our second goal. The result is two points lost and a golden opportunity to stay level on top with the rags wasted...Mancio did a mistake in taking Silva off - if a third goal would have come from somewhere it would have been from him. Anyway, we're still unbeaten and the season is still long, but we have to give it 100% allways no matter by how many goals we're leading if we want to win the PL

Really hope this is a bit of a wake-up call for the team. In most of our games we've totally dominated play and scored bags-full, but I think sometimes the players need to be reminded that they can't just turn up and expect to win - they have to work for the full 90 minutes every game.

The team has to stop being so nice and start throttling teams. If we win every game 5-0 then so be it. We cannot rest on a two goal lead, it simply is not enough on the road against a decent team. And let's all be quite honest, Fulham does have a decent team. It's no excuse for losing the two points, and hopefully this does wake the team up and force them to keep their foot on the pedal.
