Johnny On The Spot: This was as bad a night at the office as they come. It's sorely tempting considering City's rank bad luck since Christmas to allow yet another absymal refereeing performance to paper over the cracks but outside of a bar rattling howitzer of a shot from the effervescent Samir Nasri, City were toothless at Goodison Park...In particular, Edin Dzeko was hopelessly unable to put himself about an Everton backline that lacked height. Despite oceans of possession and a hatful of half chances City just did not get in behind Everton enough to hurt them. Admittedly when they did, up went the borderline flag but The Blues are lacking a cutting edge right now and badly need to rediscover it asap or risk undoing an awful lot of hard work...Everton to a man put in a shift, once again raising their limited efforts that extra notch for City. Their tackling was generally late and often atrocious, but well protected for the third consecutive season by Mr. Walton, they were able to pull off another smash and grab...What will worry a tremendously disappointd Roberto Mancini tonight above all else will be that minus Yaya Toure, this was City's strongest XI and they continue to dominate teams without putting them away...So City welcome Fulham on Saturday knowing that the lead at the top is down to goal difference again. This correspondent believes that if the side can get that rub of the refs cards and bit of luck required, then a three or four nil win will be nailed on in the coming weeks and the confidence and focus will return, but right now, we look sussed out.

Shall we hold our breath for a retrospective ban for Drenthe's tackle?

He can't get a retrospective ban because the ref saw it and booked him.

Just gotta LOL that we were the ones that made fewer and less nasty fouls, but came away with more bookings. Not the first time that's happened this season either.

So we have Spurs 123, Spurs One2 and Spu4 life. What's the difference between them? Spu4life has at least learned how to count to 4. Well done lad, just think where you could go with that if you had thumbs, eh?

You and Micah both DJDD. Could have been red, most definitely should have been at least his second yellow. Nasty piece of work that Drenthe.
