Johnny On The Spot: A firecracker of a Lancashire derby saw City and Liverpool go at it hammer and tongue with ultimately the spoils being shared following Roberto Mancini's bold decision to run with Plan B, go with three at the back and attempt to retake a lost central midfield by flooding it and pushing a dangerous Liverpool back...This was as agonising a contest as Planet Blue has encountered in The Hunt For Rag October with Liverpool intent upon giving everything to end City's title hopes...Should Mancio concede the title tonight and take some pressure off his players it will be interesting again to see how The Stretfords react following their relentless ability to claw back or grind out results so far for the entire season despite shipping some very even contests...City had the look of a side coming up short, spent and in need of reinforcement even with a stunning lung bursting performance from James Milner...Like the rags in the last campaign, City have endured a lengthy injury list throughout this one and the knowledge that the Touré brothers are flying back to Manchester will serve as an injection of much needed fresh legs ahead of a tricky trip to Southampton...A blessed relief following The Stretford Gap streching to nine points is that with any luck the sheer anti-City bias emanating from Sky and BBC mouths will back off...All is not quite yet lost for The Blues but if the results pattern of a tough season continues it will be...Yet it's well worth reminding ourselves that MCFC will not being away meekly into the night anymore and based upon this type of hard earned experience will be back stronger in August.

Wythenshawe is Blue in my experience JB Perhaps he moved from Ordsall or somewhere else Salford-esque!

Just dawned on me I didn' doff the cap to Kun Aguero's brilliance in the absence of any pundit venturing to do so. Mancio tonight says this ain't over.

Anthony Taylor is from a United family but claims to support Altrincham (sure).

Even Bob was getting paranoid like the rest of us, why did the libnesmen see all the City fouls against Liverpool, but just happened to miss the one on Dzeko? It was a good game end to end and I would have been disapppointed had City put the ball out in that situation and don't blame Liverpool for playing on. City had a chance to clear it and fluffed it. Liverpool the better team but only just and a good open game credit to both sides.
