Well no doubt Warnock will be moaning about the pens, but frankly if you have a defender stupid enough to do that twice, you should be more thankful he wasn't sent off given he already had a yellow card. Then again you could say the same for that Clyne character, not content with dragging Gabby back, he then tries to take his leg off.

Ok so it wasn't a corner for our first goal, but Gabby went down in the box aswell after bundled so fair's fair. And that's ignoring Lee's slap on Warnock for their pen before it was given.

Palace gave a good account of themselves (apart from Lawrence) and if they take the desire, and work ethic they showed against us in the games through to the league they'll be fine.

A decent game apart from when we sat back again, but a thoroughly deserved win and could've easily been in the 5-6's had we taken our chances. Onwards and upwards, should be a nice confidence boost ahead of our easy next game!

Good stats there Vital Villain - I know we always ask the guys to give 110%, but I didn't realise they could also do that with possession! :)

theres no doubt Delph has got a bright future ahead, although i think putiing on some timber would really help his game. Cuellar was also my man of the match. Milner and Gabby shouldnt of even been of the park imho, both were knackered from minute one and were in need of a game off (although gabby still got a goal and won the first pen so my hats of to him). All in all we won the game and are through to the qtr finals so good job to the boys, playing sexy football is greta but its the win that counts and we got that so happy days!

Comment on the ratings from ManCity's website - sound familiar? Barry- 5 (Offered very little. Should have scored a fantastic opportunity to take the lead. Needs to get more involved.) LOL
