Johnny On The Spot: Roberto Mancini celebrates three years at the Manchester City controls this week and he can look back with great satisfaction at the team he has fused, but one senses most notably at the resilience he has instilled into his men...This was a time for champions following that last seconds derby defeat and The Blues, having weathered the ever expected early Newcastle charge didn't let their dapper City gaffer down. You won't find many Martin Tyler or Mark Lawrenson style anti-City brigaders pointing it out, but you could see just how much this hard fought win meant to Mancio in the way that he thanked each of his players as they left the pitch and joined them in thanking City's tremendous away following...This was as textbook an away win as you can get at this level. Absorbing pressure, attributing your own and playing with flare when required. In truth, but for continued profligacy City could have run up a big score on Tyneside. Newcastle were game but any forward thrusts belied what looks to be an almost total lack of confidence...City's clear and present injury crisis has had to be carefully managed through the season to date and the European exit could yet prove beneficial come the winter's tougher months. There were some outstanding performances today, but the pick of the crop have to be Joe Hart, David Silva, Pablo Zabaleta and Captain Yaya Touré who had his best City game in months with his confidence brushing off on Javi Garcia...All in all, an immensely pleasing day at the office with City threatening a ruthlessness that should have Reading quaking in their boots next week. We're not done yet, Taggart. Stats courtesy Sky Sports/ Sporting Life

Can anyone tell me WTF Kolo and Sergio were booked for? I hate it when we win, yet I'm still furious with the ref.
