    Just stunned to see it, I've been watching City since 67, never had this feeling and enjoyment before, idolise Colin always have, but but but but fuksake this is a different game, I find myself watching the clock not because I'm worried about the result, just because I don't want it to end.

    Zelda is sad :(

    Great read though. When people talk about Pep elevating the league he's in you can get a sense of it from this kind of article. Last time I think this has happened in our league to such an extent would be early Wenger and to smaller degree Makelele style Chelsea

    I was enjoying your writing style, but by the end I grew tired of the metaphors. Over killed it, however you can write a lot better than many professionals.

    I agree with the comments above that City have played better this season. I felt for long spells of the game that we had lost control

    It's a matter of personal taste, but I disagree with your criticism about the over use of metaphor. There was an aesthetic beauty about our football that can't be adequately conveyed without the use of poetic imagery. Mundane, everyday language simply wouldn't be enough. As I texted to a mate, "There are virgins around the world weeping at the unattainable purity of our football"

    Only thirty minutes? It's a worry! Don't forget the Wolves game in the late fifties - 3-1 up with ten to go and we cop for a 3-4 reverse! I think a wee note to Pep on the grounds of being shortchanged for the last hour?

    There is no doubt that when we play to our passing best it is impossible to defend against.

    Our football is getting better and better.

    My favourite comment I read about the Stoke game was from a Liverpool fan ( who had just watched the world's bestest game ever) , paraphrasing here,

    "this is like watching amazing porn having just had disappointing sex with your fat wife"

    Didn't mention that the stadium was 2/3 empty with 5 minutes to go either. Could do better.
