Buzz on the Spot: Happy Birthday Southampton, as City gifted The Saints three goals at St Mary's this evening. Credit must be given to Southampton for the way they played and put pressure on City from the start. City never looked like coming back into the match when Gareth Barry cooly slotted the ball past Joe Hart at the start of the second half to put City 3-1 down.I was trying to find some positives for a team second in the Premier against a Southampton Team that were struggling at the relegation end of the table, but sadly I could not come up with any.To say City played poorly is an understatement, but that was no excuse against an excellent Southampton, who were up for this game and wanted it far more than City Did. Roberto Mancini: "Congratulations to Southampton, they deserved to win, I have said nothing to the players, they know how badly we played, now we only have a 10% chance of winning the Title."

Well played Saints, fully deserved and tbh it could've and probably should've been a bigger scoreline.

Gareth Barry, Joe Hart AND Roberto Mancini,MUST PAY THEIR WAGES to those fans who made the Journey to the South Coast after that inept performance that I have seen from a City side the bad old days, of Frank Clark and Alan Ball...... We were woeful, cant think of anything to say that isn't swearing....

Shocking performance. Could reigning champions have played worse?

3 mistakes, 3 goals. If the team had kept their heads up, we might still have got something from this game, but instead the heads dropped and we allowed Southampton to boss it. Not a great day at the office for us, but Southampton look to be headed towards a second season in the PL, and I wish them all the best.

Thanks guys for the comments. I hope you weren't too annoyed by my article on the media as I was merely showing that they were more concerned about you losing than the way we knocked you out of your stride. I wouldn't mind betting that if we met again at ours in a month the game would be different. Though I thought the game highlighted the fact that even good teams with strong looking squads can crumble when they lose a couple of their main players and others looked drained.

Have to be honest SFC, I'm astounded that you describe us as media darlings, from what I can make out the complete opposite is the case. I understand your point in regards exposure, you have a legitimate grievance but there is no way we are media darlings. Btw the result had nothing to do with us fielding a weakened side, it was simply a case of one set of players wanting to win and the other set not trying a leg.

Agree we showed more desire but for me I was surprised how easily we stopped Yaya. He was the one man I felt really worried about. I will admit that when I saw what I had written I was going to change Darlings to Headliners but was tired and left it to retire for the night.

Yaya was poor, he hasn't been at the races all season but Saturday was particularly bad, his passing which is usually excellent was way off, I lost count of the number of times he kicked it straight to a Southampton player. Himself and Barry seemed to be trying to outdo each other in who can put in the most incompetent display.

From reading various comments and seeing the game I wonder whether both need a good rest. Perhaps should not have played in Africa if he is not performing as usual. After all his all action style does take a lot out of you. Something I am expecting our team to find out soon.
