Could see a huge change in their mentality now against the top teams in Europe.

A lot like when we bet Milan at OT in 07 but lost at the San Siro. Fergie reckoned that gave the players a lot of belief that they could compete

Only saw the highlights but City looked great last night. Agree that it's pretty difficult to dislike them.

Huge two games for us now. Would be very happy with 4 points.

Ozil's goal last night was just pure class.
Favourite goal just to look at i think since Van Persie's header int he World Cup.

He's scored 7 in 9 this season. Looks much more confident in front of goal.

It would be practically impossible to lift the ball up like that if he shinned it. Wash your mouth out Dara.

that was rough. no one's performing it seems
martial wasn't able to do much. mkh was completely anonymous when he came on. seemed a bit lightweight too
say what you will about valencia, but at least he can put in a cross. don't think darmain managed that in 90 mins
zlatan is just a post at the moment
blind and rojo looked like they might get caught out with every break in teh second half

no positives really

And then his agent immediately dismisses the apology

He has to be one of the most hateful men in the footballing world and that's saying something

State of him like

I don't know whether to feel sorry for Toure cos he's just been brainwashed by him or he is in fact just a complete knob too. Bit of both probably.

Basically nearly every year since he joined, his agent has mouthed off about City disrespecting Yaya in some form or another, repeatadly openly slagging off City and talking about him leaving etc. He thinks he's some master bargainer/businessman when really he's just a transparent idiot.

And then Yaya would give the odd, not exactly subtle, hint about his interest in other clubs every now and then.

Most notably was "cakegate", where his agent said the club disrespected Yaya by not giving him a cake (which they did) and celebrating his birthday properly and that "some clubs buy their players Ferrari's".

Then Yaya went on twitter saying to only take words out of his mouth seriously and made light of the situation... and then about an hour later those tweets were deleted with something like "everything my agent said is true and he speaks for me". It was written in a completely different style, clearly not the same person who wrote the other tweets. So most think it was Seluk.

It was all very pathetic.

....Oh yeah and the most recent one is that Pep didn't include him in the champions league squad and Seluk said Pep should be reprimanded by City and went on to speak a load more nonsense. So Pep just said Yaya will never play for City again until Seluk apologizes.

I'm probably forgetting loads of other stuff tbh.
