Man City beat Wolves

Man City beat Wolves

Well that wasn`t so bad, was it?

While many of us wouldn`t have admitted it, a few may have feared being on the receiving end of a bit of spanking from Manchester City yesterday, however it didn`t happen and we could of pinched a point in the end.

We may have ridden our luck at times, but Manchester City did have around £100 million of recently acquired talent on show. Shay Given probably proved the best value on this appearance, while Bridge, Toure, Wright-Phillips, Barry, Robinho, Tevez and Bellamy showed the quality in the side and Emmanuel Adebayor was the man who once again bagged a goal for City.

But for all their huff and puff they didn`t add to their tally, much like the game against West Ham, the opposition threatened to bag more, but couldn`t manage it, as we continue to pick up positive comments for our battling displays.

Keogh rattled the bar during a second half where we enjoyed a better spell, not many clear cut chances were created, but it was good that we still enjoyed a period of pressure, rather than rolling over and accepting defeat.

Vital Wolves Comment: Must admit, although it is a defeat I remain fairly chipper, I was expecting to be on the receiving end of a walloping and perhaps we should continue to expect one eventually, but right now, we`re holding our own and look more likely to pinch points late on.

you did well in the 2nd half and our own inaptness at finshing almost came back to haunt us and cost us 3 points, to be honest with you wolves fans on another day we would of had 4or5 atleast but it just wouldnt go in for us and you were more lucky to get away with a 1-0 defeat than this article lets on ye you battled but it was only citys poor finishing that kept you in the game we either put them wide or straight down your keepers throat usually robinho buries them chances, anyway good luck for the rest of the season and yes you will be in for a few beatings but im sure we can find 3 teams that are worse than wolves in the prem! (pompey, hull, burnley)

Battling is all very well, but 42% possession and 2 attempts on target compared to 10 tell me that a draw would have been unwarranted. That said we competed and the lads should have the confidence to realise that we can compete at this level, poetentially tern over most teams on our day and cause some upsets. Doyle is short of match fitness, SEB and Kights not far away, and I hope Zubar will figure before long
