One down already. Out of the Capital One Cup at the first hurdle to a side who haven’t won away for about 67 years, okay….that’s not strictly true but Villa don’t exactly have the greatest recent record of winning away from home.
Once again, City struggle to hold onto a lead. Not once but twice this time and ended up well beaten so it’s congrats to the Villa and hopefully they can have a good run in the competition.
On the City forums, they were aghast at the paucity of effort put in by certain players whilst others consoled themselves in the misguided notion that we’d fielded a reserve team despite the facts suggesting that more than half of the starting team were players who are regular first team personnel.
The two young guys who have been on the fringes for a bit, Razak and Suarez, started in midfield but had little impact apparantly. Opinion was divided about Super Mario again, this guy polarises opinion like few others, some were saying he was our MOTM, others implied he did very little.
