I'm watching the Madrid derby but I've been told that City have been an absolute shambles defensively speaking.

Been reading some of the highlights and apparently they have been shocking - could this be the day the title was won already?

Game over, more points dropped for City, they really are doing their best to hand Chelsea the title.

Rescued a point at the end, still - City love shooting themselves in the foot don't they?

Gorgeous freekick from the man with all the flair, James Milner. Don't often see players just curl the ball around the wall, almost inch perfect. Chelsea's league.

What a terrible thing to see that half the stand was empty when the goal was scored. This beat-the-crowd argument is something I just not understand.

Absolutely gutted. We defended heroically. Could see that free kick was heading in from the moment it left Milner's boot - curled beautifully beyond the wall and an outstretched McGregor.

Our next two games could either turn our season around completely or see us almost guaranteed relegation.

Really poor defence yesterday an absolute shambles at the back. Kompany went missing!

Hull were unlucky not to get the win they took there chances far better than we did.

Pellegrini is messing with the team too much in my opinion. He keeps changing it and its shows.

It's my opinion we need a squad overhaul.

We won the league title in 2012. I believe that was when our squad was at it's peak. Hart. Zabaleta. Kompany. Toure. Silva. Aguero. These were our key players that season.

3 years on and these 5 players are still our key players. Zabaleta is out of form. Kompany is out of form. Toure has been missing on international duty. Aguero isn't quite 100% yet. We've basically been pulled through christmas by the brilliance of Silva. Now teams are just marking him out of the game and we haven't got a plan B. Instead we have Navas, the most frustrating player in the premier league, and 2 defensive holding midfielders who are (guess) yep, out of form.

It may be a case of taking a couple of seasons not winning titles or even challenging, but we need to desperately rebuild the squad. Just like Chelsea in '11, just like United in '13, our squad is aging badly and we need to do something about it. We have an academy, lets flippin' use it.
