Johnny On The Spot: A crucial win in the scheme of this campaign and thoroughly deserved. There's something about this group of City players. They don't like getting beat and that fact shone through at The Hawthorns and then some...But Mark Clattenburg. Never in a million years would he have sent off a Manchester United player in the borderline circumstances Jimmy Milner found himself in. Here is wisdom. Clattenburg has not refereed a single rag game since the 1-6 a year ago this weekend...Since then he has officiated 4 City games including two this season and has sent off 2 Blues in the process out of the 10 players he's sent packing since September last year. Maybe David Gill could give us the reasoning behind these facts?...Back to City and well played Blues. The squad are handily placed in the table for this stage of the season and head for Amsterdam this week on a high. Stats taken from the BBC website.

Wonder how dominant we'd have been playing 11 vs 12 instead of 10 vs 12? Is it me, or is Clanger-burg auditioning to become a basketball ref? Because he seems to be fond letting hand-balls go without the appropriate punishment. Still, we proved we have what it takes to be Champions with a performance like that.

In the same week David Gill becomes vice chairman at the fa,we get Tw*ttenburg again so soon after the Stoke farce.Coincedence?The Milner red might have been borderline,but can you honestly say any of the rags would have got a red for that.Apart from that,great performance from the lads except for the two slip ups from Kompany and Lescott.Also a point not mentioned by the media.We are now four points better off against the same teams than last season(Bolton last season,s'ton this).

Excellent spirit shown yet again. The Baggies had a purple patch after they scored for about ten minutes but we bossed the rest of it and got the deserved 3 points in the end.

I am sure Dzeko was booked aswell, but it was a brilliant win, a true test, the new comback kings, You can bet a few rags were jumping for joy when James Milner was sent off and we went behind, ony to bounce right back when Edin Dzeko came on and did the double and won us he three points.
