4 minutes left in it and City need one more. I have to say I think they're going to nick one here at the end.

Tip of the hat to Aguero there for staying on his feet, could have easily gone down Drogba-style and tried to claim a penalty, instead he tried to finish it honestly and then got straight back and got on with the game. Kudos to him for that.

I know! Had me out of my seat, I honestly thought that was creeping into bottom corner! I do feel a bit for City, they threw everything into it at the end there, it was just too steeper a hill to climb. Thanks to them and Chelsea though from a neutral's perspective for two excellent nights of European football.

So would Brad Friedel. I remember him scoring a last-minute equaliser against us at the Valley when he was playing for Blackburn. Unfortunately for all his efforts at the other end he couldn't keep out Claus Jensen's last minute last minute strike and we won the game 3-2.

I'll tell you what. If there are only 2 restaurants in Manchester then Tevez has been camped out in both of them for the last few months.

Most influential performance I've seen since the opening one or two games of the season from Nasri - mind you I guess most players would be in the shadow of Silva.

How in a million years is that Hart's fault? It takes a huge deflection off both the Toure brothers and is always going to deceive Hart.

City showed the resiliance of potential champions tonight by fighting back and earning the win. For 70 odd minutes they were slow and poor, much like the criticism of Arsenal, it was one pass too many and the final delivery was awful. Then Tevez came on, Aguero woke up and the rest, as they say, is history. Aguero is simply awesome when he gets going and never stopped working tonight, and he was probably the only City player who did!

I take it you're still a STH Peter (welcome back by the way, haven't seen you post on here in yonks!), I have to say I thought the atmosphere as a whole was very poor tonight. Lot of empty seats (especially Chelsea! Any ideas on how many they actually took up) for such a big Premiership game, midweek and on Sky or not.

I think Aguero is class by the way, sheer class. I hope he sticks around in the prem, as a neutral he's very exciting to watch. A real workhorse of a player but with such tremendous talent and skill!

Hi Goodfella,
Yeah still season ticket holder but going half with my bro next year as with recently having a child money is tight. I don't post much in here as i don't want to get banned as with football i'm easily wound up. Atmosphere was good at the game, don't know how it sounded on tv, it's not been brilliant lately through i agree as i don't think us city fans are used to title run ins and are a bit on tender hooks. Good to see Charlton doing well mate, is BWP still banging them in?

Alright mate. Yeah I know that feeling! That's quite a good idea actually with regards to the STH, I take it City's went up in price over the past couple of seasons and I expect they may continue to rise, especially if you win the EPL. It sounded quite solemn on TV to be honest, especially in the first half, one the equaliser went in the place livened up but I was expecting a cracking atmosphere when I switched the TV on, mind you from shots of the crowd you could see hearts were in mouths. Yeah, thanks, it's been a great season, it's hard to know how to feel after the last five have been but I'm actually relishing the run-in because we're in such a good position and I have such faith in the manager and team (and I haven't had it properly since we were in the prem). Yeah BWP's having another great season, 21 so far and although he had a blip of confidence midway through he's bounced back from that with 7 in his last 7 games. Be intriguing to see what he ends up and how he fares in the championship next season.

EDIT OMG a SCREAMER!

Yaya drove them home to the FA Cup win last season. He brutalised Chelsea in midweek and now he's struck one from 30 yards out. Fair dues.

Because of one tackle?

Nasty isn't a word I'd use to describe Barry either.

Yep, I'll go with that, certainly not worth the 12-15 million City payed for him.

I'd say Parker is a far superior player and his record value is still to date the 10 million Chelsea payed us for him, and that was at the time and is most certainly proved now to be a distinctly average price for the player he is.

Nah. Song is a very good player though, we had him on loan for a season at Charlton when he was just a teenager and he was a class act, if a little fiery. He got sent off once for throwing the ball into row H in the west stand after a refereeing decision didn't go his way.

Seriously Lucas is better, his positioning is far better for a start. Too often Parker has to go running around because he couldn't read the play whereas Lucas can. Lucas can also dominate a midfield more effectively, negating the main creative threat and spreading the play about.

No, Parker goes running around to sweep up other players' messes, he patrols the middle of the field well and can be that box to box player every club needs, I'd say his variety of positioning and the way he can move across the park is what makes him the player he is, certainly did at Charlton. Lucas, on the other hand, is very inconsistent and from what I hear, far from a fan favourite up at Anfield.

Lucas has to clear up other players' mess as well but doesn't have to hurtle around the pitch to do it. I'd argue against him being inconsistent, in fact for the last 18 months he's probably been our most consistent outfield player. Not only that but he has become a bit of a fan favourite but who cares about that anyway? They're the same fans that booed Evra and were unfairly booing Lucas not long after he came to the club. I wouldn't trust a lot of football fans and their opinions.

We're just going to disagree about this anyway I do think Parker is a good player, certainly the best English player in his position, but he's still got weaknesses. He did play for Charlton though

Parker doesn't hurtle around the pitch, he's not a headless chicken by any means, he's just got swift movement and can read the situations well, take the way he played at Chelsea yesterday in the first half where Spurs were struggling and he kept his composure and got them out of trouble on more than a couple of occasions with his tackling, neat ball control and accurate passing, he rarely gives the ball away.

Yes, let's. I think every player has their weaknesses, Parker's main weaknesses were exposed at Chelsea when that fool Raineri played him out of position on the right hand side of midfield. Yes, academy product of ours, like many other impressive young English players like Jonjo Shelvey, don't forget where you got him from!
