It is all well and good buying a proven goal scorer such as Sergio Aguero and a world class play maker such as Samir Nasri, but if we can't defend properly none of this will matter!
I believe Adam Johnson and Carlos Tevez should have been brought on earlier to reinforce the attack.
"For almost an hour the game was so embarrassingly one-sided that we forgot how to defend when it mattered. Defenders need to be told to close down players quickly - show them any video of a Stoke City game that should do it. I know we should have had a free kick before they scored their 2nd goal and we were unlucky with the wicked deflection it took to wrong foot Hart, but we let them take the initiative.
Although a draw away from home is not a bad result this could have been so much better.
"It was as if when we got to 2 nil up the team collectively took their foot off the gas. Mancini is right, we need to close out games better. Let's hope they learn from this." - Nige Vickerstaff
First half brilliant, second half what happened? Mancini needs to bring the correct players on at the right time. Eight minutes isn't enough to rescue the game!
