Johnny On The Spot: And so it came to pass. A powerful blast from Manchester City was swiftly followed by the type of scattergun English refereeing we're by now all too familiar with and an admirable Norwich City repeatedly secured footholds in a game the opening 15 minutes of which they didn't have a prayer...For Nasri versus Bassong, read Williams versus Van Persie and there's the crux of it, nevermind constant wholly erratic rule application by the beyond pisspoor Mike Jones...But my goodness me City's "mercenaries" worked tremendously hard at Carrow Road, despite the return to the dreadful set piece defending that blighted The Blues chaotic start to the season... Collectively, City wanted this win with a passion. As a unit, with a bang, lethargy was replaced with vigour. Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko worked skilfully and tirelessly and energised their teammates of whom Gareth Barry was absolutely outstanding. On this evidence, down to ten men for the majority of a must win match, Roberto Mancini's men served notice that they are right behind their gaffer and determined to defend their title with renewed fight. We're not done yet. Stats Courtesy Sky Sports/Sporting Life

I hate it when we have to win against both the opposition and the referee. Shocking display from all the officials today.

Sign of the times FCB. Been like that for along time now. How did Bassong stay on? Read all about in Ped's Christmas Special

I dont like Nasri but that was a shocking decision.. to keep Bassong on.. Nasri's reaction didnt merit a red card by any means. Bassong is a ******** dirty spud.
