And now from skysports.com:

Ronaldo running at four defenders and is bodychecked by Kompany but the referee is still unimpressed. Some strange decisions this evening.

Are they wrong as well?

Not entirly sure what you expect me to say.

Mancini is a moron in Europe but we already know this
City is crap in Europe but we already know this
I moan but we already know this.


This result is Mancini; fault - 3 at the back hasn't worked well in the past. Chelsea maybe but we had to hang on. Once we went what looked like 4-2-4 we were good.

Yes they;re wrong.

That was a fair challenge. Kompany the stronger of the two - I assume they refer to the point where Ronaldo vs Kompany was on the right wing. Where Kompany eased into Ronaldo and he went sprawling and started screaming the referee.

Not that it matters.

Even slightly.

Yes, yes, yes, the entire world of sporting journalism is wrong, only you are right.

Fair enough, it doesn't matter anyway. Maybe you'll scrape the Europa, or just leave it to Ajax.

Two sources are wrong, in my most humble opinion.

In my most humble opinion, Kompany led a fair challenge. On the wing, where Ronaldo was going no where, he lent into him using his arm and shoulder and had too much strength for Ronaldo - That or CR7 was looking for a free kick. In my own opinion.

Maybe we'll get into the Europa, but I can hardly care either way.

Gotta say though, it would be nice to have a whipping boy in a group stage.

I'd love a Montpelier. A Nordsjaelland. A Lille. A Braga/Cluj/Galatasaray.

What you need to get is seeded, and then you might avoid a group of death scenario.

Only problem is to get seeded, you have to get further in the competition, which you won't do if you keep drawing all the better teams in the group stage.

Catch 22 if I ever saw it.

That's only for the big clubs.
