    Sean, I was think along those lines too mate. We have to basically be at our best.

    As Nine rightly points out, City look more determined than ever. I don’t know whether this is any way fudged or impaired by the lack of tactical nous re both Arsenal and Chelsea, but you can’t take away the fact that both were emphatic victories.

    The job was done at Everton. We’ll just have to wait and see how the remainder of the season pans out and what impact will the Champions League have on both Liverpool and Man City.

    Got to keep ploughing…..

    Brian @8:26pm difficult to disagree with any of that mate. I think Higuain will get fitter and I think he’s a useful short term signing whether he goes to the end of this season or to the end of next season.

    Top quality player Brian. Aguero seems to be quite a private person much like David Silva. Two of the best players the ol has ever seen

    Do you think either could be cities best ever player?

    Nil, quite right and you can’t underestimate the effect that the CL might have on both teams.

    Chelsea have to give sari time but I think he be sacked if they don’t get top 4.

    Utd in the driving seat now.

    I don’t know to a big degree whether Cescy is missed but question marks raised on Jorginho and his teaming up with Kante. Away from home you need these guys to pull together to protect the back 4.

    David Luiz looked absolutely nervous. As the game unfolded, it was more than apparent these guys looked disjointed.

    I absolutely felt for Hazard and Higuaín today – proper Top Quality players. Why no Willian today I don’t get that. Ross Barkley quiet as well and pegged back than somebody that could pose a threat.

    To compete against a side like Man City, you have to be able to hold authority in ALL playing areas.

    Makes you appreciate previous examples in Claude Makalele, Michael Essien and Jon Obi Mikel – that might be another debate though altogether haha 🙂 🙂

    Men against boys today Nil. We need another Frank Lampard there seems to be a young man with that potential currently playing at Derby.

    Nine,

    not all doom and gloom mate. It’s a very painful defeat, but you can turn things around. Top 4 still to play for along with the League Cup Final.

    All The Best Mate.

    P.S. V good shout on Lamps and he so far seems to be doing more than a decent job for The Rams

    Cheers

    Adlab,

    Totally agree from a Neutral Perspective.

    I hear you in Sergio not receiving anything and he most dearly is an unsung hero. A Fantastic Servant to Manchester City.

    He’s already well represented for his club and could be deemed already as an Ambassador.

    Only 30 years of age and it seems he’s been around for hundreds of years.

    In my reckoning, many more to come from him as long as he stays minimal in injury.

    Another good 5+ years, here’s hoping – though not to score any against Liverpool as a disclaimer (Ha! 🙂 )

    Cheers
