I'll start with the obvious. The demolition job on the Rags on Sunday. I have revelled in the analysis and opionion pieces that either neutral or City/Utd bias media have been producing these past few days. No matter which way you shape it, they took an absolute pasting.
I had written in my previous post that this would be this City team's - under Pellegrini - first real test, a litmus test if you will. To see how they match up against an opposition who would be described as 'elite' and would offer a more recognised match in terms of being a fellow champ league team as well as the (incomprehensible after this match) fact that they are reigning champions from last season.
|How Utd's artificial challenge turned out to be perceived by City on Sunday|
I guess we will actually have to wait until next Wednesday against Bayern Munich before we can see how this City team will really match up against top opposition. Because clearly this game, against probably the most awful Utd side in my lifetime, was not the yard stick City and observers were looking for to determine what this team can really do. It did offer some sublime memories though and the deserved right to slap it up to our ghastly rivals. I will enjoy these highlights again and again and again......
Quick mention on the League Cup match against Wigan. 5-0. Nuff said. Let's now erase that FA Cup Final loss out of our minds forever.
