Johnny On The Spot: This was a Manchester City performance that bordered on the imperious dominance that Kev McCarra of the Grauniad rightly pointed out must be the next level for The Blues this season...QPR were battered in the first half and could have been humiliated but for City profligacy in front of goal that once again threatened to undo some quite sensational passing, movement and pressing which epitomised Roberto Mancini's rampant side's approach...The Citizens continue to break records. Tévez, in blistering form is regaining his El Apache territory and is now the 1st Blue to 50 goals in the Premier League...It's clear and present that outstanding performances such as those today from Rodwell, Touré, Tevez, Silva, Nasri, Zabaleta and the unsung Dzeko that the portents bode well. Somebody soon is going to get battered IF the defence can cure it's wholly unneccessary wobbly phases that invite teams on. The watching Jose Mourinho will be targeting that achilles heel later this month. You cannot give a sniff at this level to the likes of Johnson and Zamora so God forbid we serve up space or opportunities to Ladyboy Riverdancer and co at the Bernabeu...All in all a good day at the office and two weeks pause for thought before the trip to horrible Stoke. It's not been a solid start to the season but hard work and a will to win sees a good platform built from which to kick on. Stats Courtesy BBC

On paper we hammered them - in reality it was probably a bit closer than that. Hughes has bought far too many players in oe go, but they do seem to be much better quality than the ones he previously had. If they can all click in the near future, QPR should be more than all right this season. If they don't then Sparkless will soon be handed his P45. City still look a bit hesitant in defence, let's hope it's just a matter of getting warmed up!

Weave to start being clinical in front of goal, Dzeko will be able to do that if Bob gives him a run. Again disappointing that QPR did not sell all their allocation, I am sure that there are City fans out there who would have loved to be ale to get to see the game. Anyone know what happens to unold tickets in the away section?
