City drew after extra time at Old Trafford today, they did however lose it in extra extra extra time.
We were absolutely robbed of a point today, the referee allowed play to continue for over a minute and a half more than it should have. I am not saying we were robbed because we deserved anything from the game because we didn't although scoring 3 goals at Old Trafford is maybe worth a point, I am saying we were robbed because the referee was clearly playing on until United scored and that is the truth about what happened. He also gave a free kick that never was in my opinion for Utd to go on and score from the resulting set piece.
City were not all there again today, we were very sloppy and repeatedly lost possession, when will Hughes teach them to put their foot on the ball and slow things down? We can learn from this game today, Utd were way better than us in every single department and we should look at them and say that's what we need to be doing.
It is time that Hughes finally drops two of our big names, SWP and Ireland were being carried again today and contributed absolutely nothing. De Jong is playing well so I say keep him in midfield, wait for Robinho to get fit and bring in both him and Weiss. SWP is just not good enough at the moment, he seems to think he can run through players rather than have to take them on and as for Ireland there isn't a couple of faults with him, he looks like a man that has never played football before.
I think we can take lots from this game, I mean after all we did score 3 good goals goals at Old Trafford which is a hard task in it's self. We should keep our heads up and be ready for the next game, because we can finish high up this league if we want to!
