Johnny On The Spot: There was always going to be no margin for error for The Blues in the pursuit of The Stretfords who will play at QPR next month...Roberto Mancini's men's main collective failure was to allow themselves to be "harry-ed," hustled and bustled out of their stride repeatedly in west London tonight...The R's were everywhere and never took their foot off the peddle...As warned in the VMC Preview, Harry Redknapp is slowly getting his survival game plan across to generally limited players as their upward trajectory of results proves. It isn't pretty and almost old Wimbledon-esque kick 'n' rush out of massed defence at times, but it was enough to rattle the champions backed by a raucous crowd...Had Pablo Zabaleta's storming header not hit the crossbar in the first half, it was nailed on that Rangers would fold, but in truth City did not take their chances and did not get in behind the massed home defence enough to continually hurt them, despite an unbelievable amount of going round the houses possession that registered 604 passes to the home side's 267...The result is of course hugely disappointing and means that barring a miracle from Southampton and a dreadful Fulham the Trafford Gap could be a psychological 10 points before City take on Liverpool on Sunday...Planet Blue can still draw some comfort from the fact that the rags will still drop points at some stage, that QPR is becoming a difficult place to go and that there are still a lot of points to play for but The Blues are still not direct enough as they haven't been all season and right now are missing a forward line spark.

Very frustrating, only 4 shots on target after all that possession sums it up well, we lacked spark tonight.

QPR set out to park the bus and muscle us out of the game. It worked.
