Johnny On The Spot: The City juggernaut gathers lightning pace. Roberto Mancini and his close knit squad's reaction to being written off at Arsenal less than a month ago has been 5 straight wins including 15 goals scored and 1 conceded. Quintessential title winning form...The thundering momentum behind Mancio's men is immense now and regardless of what the rags do at home to Swansea, The Citizens have one hand on a holy grail unimagineable 3 years ago...Newcastle are a far better side than Stretford and so it showed today, but in point of fact The Magpies were never allowed to settle with Kompany and Lescott again imperious. Zabaleta and Clichy never stopped running and Hart when called upon was stunning...Silva kept a solid City together and in total control of the game until Newcastle's first shot on 28 minutes but the deep lying Blues were largely profligate with Tevez and Aguero just not quite firing...But cometh the hour, cometh the rag nemesis following Mancio's masterstroke substitution in sacrificing Nasri for De Jong so that Touré could start to charge forward. How the hacks scoffed at Touré's signing and salary but boy has he delivered for this club. Two clinical finishes later and Manchester edges closer and closer to a promised land that Planet Blue never ever thought it would see again. A brilliant, brilliant win.

Anyone else think that newcastle might just be a wee bit over-hyped? Good team, yes, but we destroyed them and could have had 5 or six. Still hope they make the CL, but come on folks, only one team was going to win today.
