    I was interested in that article, and I'm sure the rest of it is equally interesting as the bit I read, but I got to the line about 'half the whatnot of Tonga'. Can anyone write an article about City without comparing the money spent to some other wholly irrelevant total? Mention the amount of money, compare it to what others are spending but to come up with the fact that it equates to half of someone's GDP is critical, sneering and tedious!

    What's great is that we can also keep high levels of concentration and pressing for over 35 mins when we need to, look at the Chelsea game. I do worry we might burn out of the cause of the season though. I think Pep wants to create the fear factor early on and I imagine we will see more games where we take the gas off the foot if we are 2, 3 up after the first half.

    Great to see us scoring and dominating so late in the match today while not quite hitting our best form earlier in the match. I think the 35 minute theory is spot on but it's nice to see that when it doesn't go to plan we can grind out a result and fight for a win. It's something that we haven't seen since a lot of. To be honest even under Mancini if we weren't on form we'd rarely grind out a result.
