Johnny On The Spot: Planet Blue witnessed the completion of a steadily accumulated power shift across Manchester football today. The sight of the ashen faced Glazer brothers, their hopelessly leaderless, indisciplined players, the distraught Taggart and swathes of empty red seats said it all as the noisiest of travelling hordes milked this stunning shockwave of a victory for all it's worth...If Roberto Mancini thought he might have begun to reach legendary status in Manchester through a Cup Semi Final win, an FA Cup win and realising the holy grail of Champions League football, then this record breaking win will cast any doubt aside for the dapper City gaffer who as ever was a class act in post match reaction after nailing the Stretford bin man for tactics again...and the fact today is that the ageing Ferguson will not get that many more chances to attempt to avenge this total humiliation - squad against squad, he hasn't got a prayer...The united supporters who clung to their Community Shield win against a third gear City knew defeat was coming as liddle ciddy's continued resurgence just wouldn't go away but none of them could have expected a rout of the proportions City's mercenaries dished out in their own backyard...This was as controlled and measured a performance as you will see all season. City's smouldering latent power spearheaded by Mario Balotelli once unleashed ripped the united rearguard to shreds and in point of fact it could have been 10. City have now scored a sensational 33 goals in 9 league games. The Citizens total for the whole of last season was 60... The only outstanding question now is what will a legion of learned punters and anti-City brigade hacks come up with to explain away a stunning result that has resounded not only throughout Europe, but all around the world...Wolverhampton Wanderers, YOU are next.

Silva's last pass is one of the best I've ever seen in world football. Can't say much else right now, my head is buzzing!

Samaritans have set up a special number for concerned rags 0161 161616. Red nose thought he could deal with us and the fans are using pants Evans and the sending off as the excuse. Total humilation will do that to you, I guess.

I think I might have a little cry with joy. Do I feel giddy or what. Great performance, great win and what a great day. CTID.
