Johnny On The Spot: This was precisely the outcome required for injury, suspension, Cup of African Nations and craparazzi hit City ahead of the testing revenge mission at Arsenal next weekend - the goal for 17 year old debutant Marcos Lopes following good work from Mario Balotelli being the icing on the third round cake...James Milner and Pablo Zabaleta were the City driving forces against a game Watford side who put the likes of Stoke City's recent cowardly Etihad approach to shame by carrying plenty of threat. Ultimately the champions' class told. Stats courtesy BBC Sport - The FA Cup 4th Round Draw will take place at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon Live on ITV @ 15h30 GMT

Not at the game today and waiting to see the highlights, but if the stats are anything to go by, the shots to goal and those on target for City are impressive. A job done on a potential banana skin, Wford is an excellent team and had their fair share of attempts at goal.

Happy to see Mario get a run, looking forward to the draw.

Enjoyed the stadium, we can play better, honest, just a quick note.. Apologies for some so called fans giving it large about Supporting local team and chanting utd.. What can I say? Totally embarrassed really, not sure where they came from, because they are never at the home games. We all know there is only one team in Manchester, they play in blue! Good luck for the rest of the season, hope to see you at the Vic next..
ANDY710
Cheers and many thanks Andy. Wouldn't surprise me if that was some Stretfords paying to get in amongst the away support. Their famous ratboys in black have done it before! Good luck for the season!
Johnny Baguette
Well said Andy710, the u****d songs were noticed by a lot of our fans!
