Haha, just saw someone post "City throwing money at their problems as usual". My thoughts on the match:
Great game. Thought City looked good up until the opening goal, then they went downhill. Not sure if Hart could've got to it, probably not expecting it to go in. Young's goal should've stood but I can see why the linesman got it wrong, he didn't have the replay like us. Hard to say what would've happened if it would've stood, City could've went all out attack and made a comeback or they could've just collapsed under the pressure. I thought Zabaleta's goal was quite good, fair play to him. Didn't really see whether Rafael dived or not, I didn't get to see a replay but judging from most comments there was contact - just glad that RVP scored the free kick (with help from his old Arsenal team mate).
Bit disappointing with what happened with Rio, Rooney and the fans. To be fair, it was only a minority that were throwing them and the surrounding fans were quick to point out the guy who hit Rio. At first, I thought he'd hit himself when celebrating. Overall, happy with the 3 points but it was a close one towards the end.
