They have enough midfielders.


He would improve their squad majorly. The midfielders they have weren't good enough to get them to the knock-out stages of the Champions League

Just the midfield?

Delighted with the win tonight, the manner of the win is as important, showed great determination to get the 2 goals we deserved.

Stoke match is vital. A win would certainly help to swing things in their favour (even slightly), They'll have to stay focused and avoid the mind games. The pattern for the remainder of the season is fairly predictable - if City fail to win a game they'll be accused of "bottling it" whereas United will not be written off until it's mathematically out of their hands.

yes great win, should provide some confidance, but we must win next 3 games, and stoke away is never easy.
one game at a time now.

What a fookin win, absolutely buzzing when Nasri scored. He was brilliant, my MOM just ahead of Mad Zab and Micah, though it's about time he put in a shift like that.

Couldn't bring myself to celebrate Tevez's assist though, and there were some embarrassing displays of 'Welcome Back' flags and t-shirts. He's part of the squad and I'll be happy in general if his goals get us the title but any man love I had for the guy is long gone.

Win against Chelsea, lose at Stoke anyone?!

For obvious reasons I have no man love for Tevez but I hopped round the sittingroom when he slotted that ball thru for Nasri

Great stuff!!!!!!

I'd rather celebrate Nasri's good finish, but I really can't understand how any City fan can still be happy for Tevez.

Because things move on thats why.....not 'happy' about the whole thing myself but there were mistakes made on both sides, tevez made big mistakes and mancini made equally big mistakes, everybody gets things wrong now and again....time to move on.

Loosing at stoke is not an option, its just about winning and getting results now, battle by battle.

Such a huge game on Sunday and Vinny may be back for it but do you change a winning team? Thought Micah and Mad Zab were superb so for me they deserve to start again. Probably would bring Kompany in for Kolo if he's pretty much right.

Then what do you do with Mario? Away to a physical Stoke with a hostile crowd I think he could have a brain fart and do something stupid. I'd probably go with Dzeko as a starter.

Resting Silva also crossed my mind so something like this -

-----------------------Hart----------------------

Zabaleta------Richards-------Kompany------Clichy

-----------------De Jong----Milner---------------

Nasri-------------------Yaya--------------Aguero

-----------------------Dzeko--------------------

Subs: Pantillimon, Kolo, Kolarov, Tevez, Silva/Johnson, Balotelli, Barry.

I thought Dzeko ran around like a headless chicken
against Chelsea so i would let Mario start and see what happens

You are right about Silva

Delighted it was Nasri who got the goal if I'm honest and happy too that Carlos had a part in it.
I have changed my tune since before Xmas and feck it, I don't care. He played a part (a big part) in our win the last night and that means more to me than any half hearted, PR scripted apology meted out in the past

We need to win this season to keep Mancini safe, keep the investors happy, shut Man Utd fans up but most importantly put a more optimistic head on Xavi6
