What a complete capitulation. Yes its tough and yes sometimes the decisions are unfair but you have stick your head up and give it your all.

lets be fair - the game was completely taken away from them by the ref, and the linesman who in the first half didnt think Maicon had pushed Gabby over when it happened in front of his stupid little rugger face. And even then another spawny goal to make it four. Shots on target stat shows we werent that bad for the first hour. Meanwhile two other teams won below us and we are in danger of getting left behind. HAVE to beat Arsenal now.

Easier said than done Grizzly. I know they are supposed to be "professionals" but when you see something being swiped away by some excuse for a linesman, it's hard, very hard. I hink Weimann was taken off for his own good. I think I would of had to of been escorted from the ground if I was there for my own good too. Even the two commentators on T said they were VERY harsh ecisions. We were still in it a 1-0 until that turd of a linesman decided he wanted to do an immitation of a prat....he got that spot on!

Stop making excuses. Yes the lino got it wrong. It took Man City around 6 minutes between goals. What sort of defending is that? Weimann was robbed, but he shouldn't be jumping with his arm stuck out in salute in the first place. The heads going down and the ease of the play was pathetic. The second penalty was not harsh. Bannan went to ground and the ball came off his arm. No its not 'hand to ball' but the linesman and referee judged that the fact his arm was in the way prevented a goal scoring opportunity and blew up. If that was the other way round you would be screaming for a penalty. Sometimes you have to take the goggles off. One poor decision does not equal a 5-0 drubbing. A poor performance equals a 5-0 drubbing.

Well we all know it's rigged so nothing new there. I always say you have to effectively win 3-0 against the top 4 sides if you actually want to win as when you tally in the dodgy decisions 3-0 equates to 1-0 if your lucky. So effectively we lost 3-0 today.. the rest would normally be dodgy decisions. Then of course you have to factor in the psychological effects of those decisions repeatedly going against you which surely has an even greater impact on confidence & belief etc.. 2 of the biggest factors in deciding the result of course.

Same attempts on target as City, so not that bad a performance, but Lerner you need to stand up and tell us your game plan because we're now in the relegation zone, he needs to sort something out, for me though, he can't go quick enough.

City retained the ball after if rolled onto Bannan's hand, when it had already rebounded off him. How many times have you not seen those given...? This is nothing new - but we re not usually 9 pts from 12. When is Bent going to be fit ?

FFS malacaxeta. Will you stop going on about bent. Wouldn't have made any difference. You don't just "score goals" by playing a goal hanger and crossing your fingers. Good to see Bowery get blooded against the champions. The game was lost by then and the score was irrelevant, it's a long term thing. Future could well be bright. We need some experience for the here and now to carry us through though.
