We are through to the last 16 but oh boy did we make it hard for ourselves. We had to play extra time before finally wrapping up the win.
Our goals were scored by Gareth Barry and Kolo Toure, both goals were headers from set pieces, Goals below!
I have to say last nights game was the most boring game of football I have seen in a long while, both teams were absolutely rubbish to watch.
I have no idea what was wrong with our lads last night but as a team they were shocking, their decision making and passing were particularly poor. It wasn't like we were playing a good side, Fulham were rubbish as well.
I think the main reason we were poor was because of two certain individuals not doing their jobs again! Ireland and SWP are both proving to be weak links in our side at the moment, granted SWP was involved a little more last night than he has been lately, but he still seems to think he run right through a defender and on top of that his final ball, passing and decision making were rubbish all night. As for Ireland I don't know if his poor performances have got something to do with over training himself or what, what I do know is we need the old Ireland back!
Out of all the negatives last night City had one huge positive, Nigel de Jong! He was absolutely fantastic last night, he was all over the place winning tackle after tackle. I love to see this from players, he is backing up what he said about not being happy on the bench, keep it up Nigel.
Most important thing, last 16 here we come!
