  1. Worst game by City I have ever seen. Poor touches, and the last 15 min were complete helter skelter. Disappointed I am. Couldn’t finish worth beans. And to think I inaugurated my City jersey today – hah!

  2. While it’s disappointing he isn’t playing today, he went the full 90 in both games of the previous knockout round against Kazan.

  3. Wow, the problem with Man City is Mancini. I don’t know why he insists on playing Yaya Toure in an attacking midfield role when he slows down play too much.
