Johnny On The Spot: How Shay Given did not pick the ball up out of his net repeatedly today is a mystery. Or is it? Sixty pointers City showed in Birmingham today against a dreadful Aston Villa that the swagger is back and were it not for the cagey "don't concede" tactic of not piling men into the box behind the effervescent Kun Aguero on follow ups, this could have been a massacre...As it stands, the Blues have an invaluable three away points bagged, but after shutting up shop following Joleon Lescott's winner, were indebted to a sensational save from Joe Hart in the closing stages. Villa appeared by then to suddenly be playing with relief at not having been savaged and exchanged their shocking lack of commitment for a bit of daring do...Yet ultimately, this is an evening to savour across Planet Blue tonight. Title chasing City are clear at the top with 60 points and a +9 goal difference on the rags. There are 13 games to go, no injuries nor suspensions and "new signings" the Touré brothers and Mario Balotelli are about to take the field again. Opportunity knocks. Take it.

Talk about a 1-0 battering! Bring on Porto and the Toure brothers return.

Good 3 points but we could and perhaps should have made sure of it much earlier. Still a win's a win and that two point cushion over the Rags is back. :-)

And that's how titles are won. How can you play at home and put 10 men behind the ball for 80mins?

We've done well to sign Balotelli and the Toure brothers outside of the transfer window. Hope they bed in quickly and bring home the Premiership...
