Johnny On The Spot: Business as usual for the league leaders. From the first whistle there was only ever going to be one winner as City's razor sharp pass and move game left Norwich hopelessly chasing shadows. Samir Nasri was influential. A massive yellow bus parked itself across The Etihad against the stated intentions of Paul Lambert, but once shot through, it was game over...The City juggernaut is now only 2 goals shy of 50 up for the season with a stunning +35 goal difference but you can bet your bottom euro that Roberto Mancini will be critical of the lazy defending that gifted Norwich their second corner and consequent goal...City simply shifted through the gears in response to that setback securing an emphatic victory with two more goals...With Bayern United winning 4-1 at home to Bremen, the stage is now excitingly set for Wednesday night's Champions League do or die, last chance saloon clash at The Etihad. Never say never.

Norwich were damned if they did, damned if they didn't. Great performance City, patience and pure skill unlocked a stubborn Norwich setup and as soon as they tried to make a match of it, we were ready to capitalise. Averaging 3.42 goals per game. That's outstanding. And 5 different scorers today to boot. This time last year we were been dubbed the one man team. Hahahaha, chuckle chuckle

I predicted 4-0 but I'm more than happy with 5-1. Well done lads.

Probably the most one-sided game of the season. Norwich fans were great, even at full-time they were cheering their players. Not sure what their manager was on though suggesting the scoreline was a bit unfair, it should have been much worse for them really with Dzeko and Aguero's misses. If we exit December still top of the league after Chelsea and Arsenal, we will be in a super position to do the previously unthinkable and win the league.

Yes, i was miffed at Lambert's Fergie-like denial. Norwich were never in the game. the next challenge is Bayern, will they bring a full strength team? Villareal lost and Napoli scored 4 this weekend. It looks bleak but i think we have a real chance of European silverware this season. Although the Europa Cup match schedule is unsettling, we have a big squad and we need to give them games.
