Buzz On The Spot- Guesting here trying to fill the boots of Johnny Baguette, who has gone Christmas shopping. Manchester City looking a lot like Santa Claus, ready to give Reading a Christmas Present of at least a draw and really looking like they were going to go home with a valuable point. Reading having the worst defensive record in the league had brought the bus with them today, as bottom Club visited the home of the Champions at The Etihad Stadium. Reading in previous games, had given it a go but today the tried to contain City and to their credit, they did so for more than 90 minutes and must be gutted to go home empty handed. In what was a contrant stream of attacking from City, they did what is becoming typical of City by never giving up,just before the final whistle, Barry popped up and nodded the winner, snatching away the present at the last moment running out worthy winners but it was a close thing.

10 shots off target, a little worrying?

A lack of clinical edge, been a problem all season Robson. Not sure how we can fix it, shooting practice or buying yet another striker perhaps.

No it's a tough one. You can't exactly invite teams onto you just so you can then break! It's probably a massive headache for Mancio.

Their best play was the Goalkeeper with all bar one of the Royals a few meters infront of him for most of the match, that tells it all, it was just a question of breaking down the wall and scoring more than they did. You can't always run up a cricket score and that 1-0 wins are just as good as 1-6 they both win you 3pts.

Well done Buzz! They still need to know they are allowed to have a shot from outside the box but all in all against a solid defence we came out well. 3Pts is a good result of course it is, but we could be still seen to be sharper at moving the ball up the field.

As the man says. 20 more 1-0 wins and City will retain the title!!
