To be fair the City fans have a point. Bet you didn't take anywhere near 3k to Oldham in League One.The irony of 50,000 odd Man City fans screaming "where were you when you were shit" at us Record attendance against Bournemouth, random. Haven't other teams sold out?
Coming to you on 4G right now from deep inside Manchester as we try and get out of the place. Gridlock.
As for the game, City utterly clinical first half, scoring from some frankly daft chances we gave them. All you can do is make the opposition score a bloody good goal if they are gonna score. We just repeatedly dropped a bollock and Sterling was all too happy to make us look stupid. Bugger me he's fast.
When we did manage to attack, City's defence actually wasn't up to much, and we really should have had a few goals ourselves. Murray and King failing from some excellent positions, although Murray took his goal well. Should have got back to 2-2 really.
And although it makes no difference, we're pretty pissed off with the first City goal. Clearly offside to the point where the lino put his flag up. Then put it down again when the ref played on ignoring him.
Makes absolutely no difference to the end result, but irritating all the same.
De Bryune is pretty impressive, able to get a lot of power from barely touching the ball. We found it impossible to handle both him and Sterling.
Second half City dropped down a gear or two and it was pretty non eventful. Except the final goal, which half the home fans missed cos they'd already left. Perhaps I should have taken that as a warning for the road chaos I find now.
Just remind me to reconsider my travel plans if I end up here again. Might get back on the m6 sometime tonight...
To be fair I often feel like chanting it at our own fans at times, I get very frustrated with the 'new' crowd. But to hear it coming from Man City fans did raise a smileTo be fair the City fans have a point. Bet you didn't take anywhere near 3k to Oldham in League One.
Finally no way was Sterling's goal offside, Ritchie was playing him on by a mile but the linesman had a 'moment' that caused minor confusion. The right decision was made in the end.
