Johnny On The Spot: A tremendously robust and professional performance from Manchester City left Leeds hopelessly outclassed. From the first whistle The Blues were at the visitors and bang on top of their game, maintaining complete control throughout...City were full of purpose and pressing and the Championship side who once played their football on a different planet never got a sniff...City's Argentine Ground Attack were in imperious form. Tévez and Aguero registered there 67th and 42nd goals in sky blue respectively, boding well for the intriguing visit of Chelsea next weekend...This result and performance in the face of an almighty banana skin backed by a week long tsunami of anti-City sentiment proved categorically that Roberto Mancini has his players on side and to the crestfallen likes of Danny Mills and a legion of vulture hacks, "Mancini" rang out around The Etihad Stadium. Chelsea, YOU are next. Stats Courtesy BBC Sport

Job done. Professional performance and a poke in the eye for the anti-City foamers. I don't doubt for one moment that they will continue to bitch and moan from the sidelines as they big up the next game as "Mancini really needs to win this one or he'll be under real pressure".....

what happened to the red cards Clattenburg was supposedly going to be dishing out to City players today? not even a yellow.

Clatters certainly handled that game well. When Browny was goading Yaya I thought here we go..and so did Mancio.

Man City manager Roberto Mancini: "I think it was really important to win this game. If you score two goals within the first 20 minutes it is easier, but the FA Cup is a difficult competition as Arsenal and Everton showed yesterday....We started well with intensity. I think the result is correct. Our strikers need to continue to score like they did today. If they do that, we can have other chances....I am happy to hear the fans chant my name as they are really important. When we lost against Southampton, our thoughts went to them as they deserve to win every game."
Johnny Baguette
The "Mancini out" brigade in the media and amongst our fans will be reaching for the razor blades this evening. As comprehensive a victory as we could have hoped for, bring on Barnsley
fifthcolumnblue
that was a most professional game City have played for a long time, Leeds never had a sniff, and got what they deserved, NOTHING, so lets hope this is a catalyst for the future WITH Bobby Mancini..... Well done Blues.
