Them stats are incredible when you think how the game panned out. Napoli looked a constant threat save for the last 20 mins of the first half and that was with just 30% possession, an excellent counter attacking side.

City made something like 600+ passes to Napoli's 200+. Not quite the battering the anti-City hacks would have the football world believe.

Still don't understand how we managed to get all the cards either - I know 2 of them were for dissent, ie free-kicks unjustly going to diving Napoli players, but still, there were no bad fouls from our side all night. I guess the Napoli game, just like the Bayern game where we had two stone-wall penalties turned down in the first 20 minutes, shows how effective an extremely vocal home crowd can be in swaying the referee's decisions.

Kompany and Kolarov did put in a couple of bad ones at the end Fifth but I agree with you that the home crowd influenced the decision making of the ref, especially in the second half, just goes to show how important it is to raise the roof of the Etihad when we're at home. The ref to be fair to him did spot a lot of their play acting and waved play on but what gets me is I thought simulation is punishable with a caution, especially for repeat offences but I guess if refs were to caution everytime a player took a dive the Italian teams would have matches abandoned constantly as they would have so many sent off.
