Johnny On The Spot: A night that hurts like hell. City were 5 minutes away from recording a stunning victory in Madrid but were ultimately undone by conceding two sloppy goals having absorbed everything Real threw at them and twice gone in front. Joe Hart's clear anger and frustration spoke for us all post match...To a man City gave their all tonight against a quite brilliantly talented side and held their own for long enough periods to make their own presence felt...It's often unfair to single out individuals in a solid team effort, but Barry, Clichy and Tevez were outstanding. The next step now is to take this result out on the Ashburton bottlers this Sunday... A couple of special mentions. We don't often say this on VMC but the referee had a great game putting dreadful Premier League cardsmiths to shame. Meanwhile the self styled "special one" Jose Mourinho continued his quest to become the next rag manager with a classless straight down the tunnel walk off and tacit refusal to give City any credit for a tremendous performance tonight. His sheer, sweat drenched relief said it all. City have arrived at the top table and we can be justly proud of our team tonight. stats courtesy BBC

It's not the defeat that hurts so much as the hope we had been given.

Had to be the very essence of ragness that scored the winner, didn't it? Being FB'ed, Tweeted and texted by rags having a jolly good titter - convenient the way he shat on them from such a great height eh?

If we can make it past the group stage, then we should do well. We proved we can mix it with the best, and I feel sorry for Hart the most.

We played the team who on their day (like today) are the best club side in the world, they won La Liga over the generation defining Barcelona team. Simple fact is that they are better than us at this point just as they are better than pretty much everyone else. To almost win there is amazing but at 2-1 we should have held on and WOULD have held on if we defended like we once did. Defence needs sorting.

Of Real's 29 goal attempts on target...28 were from outside the box. Still, if you buy enough lottery tickets...
