Johnny On The Spot: What a travesty it would have been had a conservative Fulham taken anything from this game. Gifted a lead through more pisspoor Premier League refereeing, they proceeded to park the bus at regular intervals whilst City wrestled with the demons that have seen The Blue Juggernaut miss gears thus far this season...Various radars appeared to still be off in the early stages but through sheer tenacity and hard work The Citizens passed their way back into this game with the type of quickfire pass and move that has become this squad's trademark...Tevez and Silva in particular put in immense shifts which were ultimately rewarded with Fulham finally being throttled into submission by Dzeko's fine strike off the back of City starting to flow again at last...This constitutes a timely and crucial win which will serve as a terrific shot in the arm across Planet Blue.

Fantastic performance, if not for Halsey disgracing himself for the second week running we might have won by more of a margin. Silva looked close to his best today.

Total dominance. The only thing that took the shine off was Halsey's early gift to Fulham. That was never a penalty, but we'll just have to be happy that it didn't cost us come the final whistle.
