City crush Arsene's whingers!
Great result, odd game, full of goals, controversy and hypocrisy!
City started poorly in both Half's but generally defended well until we went 4 up! Richards and Bridge looked very impressive! Lescott despite having a Dunne moment played pretty well making some top well timed tackles. Kolo once again the best at the back!
Nigel De Jong at last got a chance to shine this season. He is a top class player and provides the necessary grit that we haven't yet had this season. The ball winning skills of him and Barry should be treasured by Hughes! Steven Ireland was again anonymous, coasting through the game leaving us 1 short in the middle! When he was finally removed, City finally found it's best shape!
Bellamy had a stunner and should of been MOTM! He lacks the final ball to be really effective on the left as a winger, but his work rate and effort made him undroppable! As soon as he shifted through the centre, we looked better organised and balanced! Everyone has mentioned Robinho struggling to get in the team, well i think Ireland will struggle, he has yet to perform this season.
Arsene Whinger once again relies on stats to finish another game in a ungracious manner, despite Arsenal not troubling Given at all in the 1st half! Perhaps he should of set his team to go out and win instead of getting one over Adebayor. Ade was marked with about 4 players on average and victim to the continued barrage of low grade fouls that Whinger claimed United are guilty for, but never Arsenal. I thought their fans were also disgraceful, their conduct towards their own players has always been poor. Deeply unpleasant taunts on Adeabyor all game, it was quite amusing at the time to see him sprint the pitch. The reaction from the away fans was simply out of order. When Robin Van Persie scored and ran to city fans screaming 'F*ck Off' i didn't notice anything been thrown at it him, will he get punished for that?
He probably did stamp on Van persie who took him out with a reckless and malicious tackle. I thought it odd that he saw so much of the incident with his head pointed towards the ground! I expect the witch hunt to go on for sometime, and perhaps Ade won't get away with it like Rooney or Ronaldo! Clattenburg was stood in front of the challenge, so expect the Fa to ignore it's own laws and have another trial by TV. Van persie has shown himself to be classes hypocrite, with a provocative press release and his conduct on the pitch with the fans and Adebayor! Not a great way to end a great victory, we don't really want to lose Ade for a few games either. hopefully RSC and tevez will be back soon! City gave a strong performance and took our chances well! Great confidence boost for the united game!
