Fantastic performance, actually pressed which made all the difference, and managed a win against quality opposition with 10 men. (Prowse contributed absolutely f*** all).

Sadoldgit added 12:13 - Jul 6

A great team performance. Everybody pulled together and put in a shift. Such a change from that dreadful Leicester performance. Well done to Ralph and the squad for turning things around.

FaroSaint added 13:13 - Jul 6

Really great team performance the best for 3 years

KriSaint added 14:37 - Jul 6

Perfect formation, pressing, defending and counter attacking performance vs a very, very good team.
I was worried about Ings, with all his heroic running, getting a muscle injury after an hour, but Ralph did right in not substituting him.
I was also worried about Romeu playing the whole second half on a yellow card, but whose head cleared De Bruynes last gasp free kick, which was clearly a good kick of the ball, headed for goal? Romeus head :-D

Very, very well done to all the players and Ralph and with Adams´ great winner, this was a fantastic match to watch. Never forgotten.

It wasn't a fantastic match to watch, we were being battered for 90 minutes and if Pep hadn't been so arrogant to leave De Bruyne and Foden on the bench to rest them it might have been a different story. Our 'Captain's' performance was particularly forgettable, just jogged aimlessly as usual, didn't contribute a thing.

We weren’t battered for 90 minutes. We played like an away side in the first half and did well. The second half was mostly one way traffic but that was 45 minutes, not 90. Our captain put in a decent shift as did everyone. City are a quality team. To take three points off them was an excellent achievement given how poor we were not so long ago.

I thought the Watford game was excellent attacking football, this game was 100% solid defending. Every player was fantastic. They defended as though it was the last day of the season and we needed 3 points to stay up. So proud. JWP was incredible in his effort and leadership (not sure what game you watched I_would), Ings was absolutely everywhere getting stuck in, toss up for MotM for me between KWP, Stephens, Romeu or McCarthy.
This was the proudest performance I have seen since we beat Inter Milan. Chuffed to bits that Che got off the mark by exploiting the sweeper-keeper system.
