We have Stoke to thank for starting the trait of the weekend of the underdog or away team.
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

And 'uur Albert' makes it three:

Note, the run Sturridge makes to the back post to provide an option, and Sterling holds his run a second and creates himself space and clear path into an area of space in the area should the need arise. Fluid forward lines. "You gotta luv um."

Now, the most important part of the game is a clean sheet, as the old lady in the Chinese laundry will tell you.

The media are already dissecting Balotelli's every on pitch move.

Striker in missed chance shocker. First football he's play all Summer. He's still in pre-season rusty mode.

What's more important is how he's fitting in to the team's play. Considering he's known his team mates for 5 minutes and a couple of training sessions the early signs are more than encouraging.

Two goals so far in three games. Raheem is looking like he can improve on his 9 league goals last. It's the only way Suarez could be replaced - collectively.

In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

Got a bad feeling ahead of today's game. For the first time I really think Rodgers is struggling.

I fear a gruesome defeat today.

Nostrodamus walks among us.

 :D ;)

I've always sung Mark Hughes' praises as loudly as possible.  ;D If there was any justice in football he'd still be City's manager.

;D ;D ;D Brilliantly put!

 :D    Thanks Martin.


Dracula is dead, long live Dracula.

Great to see us putting Spurs to the sword today. 

Getting this type of great result early in the season, will be great for the confidence of our players - especially Sterling.

Going to White Hart Lane and playing dazzling football, is a fine achievement.

6 points from the first three games is a better start than I'd expected. It's a pity we gave up all three points to City, but we can right that wrong later in the season.

Against a team that have been scoring goals freely so far this season, a clean sheet, away from home is really promising. Unlike last season when we  started off with a few, lets hope we can keep this going all season, and our goal difference has now been given a good boost, to boot.

very true.

Been a great weekend.

City lose at home against Stoke....United struggle and pick up a point against Burnley.  Two points out of nine.

United are up to their necks in debt, and spending a whole further pile more this summer (including massive salaries).

I love our fluidity.

Great goal for Moreno.  Ballotelli had a good debut.

a point would have been nice.

but I look at it, as that was possibly our hardest game of the season.....so, everything else is gravy.

our goals and fluidity today, will give the lads great confidence.....they will now begin to realise that there is indeed life after Dracula.

Excellent game to watch and i was more than pleased with the result.
The 2 spanish fullbacks looks excellent and solid.
Lovren is excellent as a defender but fairly useless going up field but i'm hoping he'll get better and better at that, sakho was good and bad in equal measure.
Allen and Gerrard played well and as for Sterling he was superb.
good debut from Mario and once he finds his shooting boots he will be a real danger and his tracking back was nice to see, sturridge was a constant threat and henderson mopped up.
Overall a top win.
Thank christ Gerrard has given up the internationals cos he can at least recharge now.
