What Manchester City fans had to say about Newcastle

7 years ago

After Saturday’s match at the Etihad, we thought we’d search out what Manchester City fans had to say about the match and Newcastle United.

Their biggest Premier League win in 11 months and the match won in only 27 seconds, what would the blue half of Manchester have to say?

We visited a few different Man City forums and there were some interesting takes on the match and our club…

‘Even an idiot could see we took our foot of the gas after we got the fifth, we still got a chance or two but the minds of the players were not on scoring by then.’

‘I get the point that after being 5-0 up after 60 minutes that we should (and indeed could) have gone on to score more goals in order to improve our goals difference tally when compared to Chelsea. So no need to worry and let’s enjoy the victory over the Geordies.’

‘No need to kill ourselves trying for a 10-0 win was there?. Still should have a lot in the tank for Barca on Tuesday. Easiest win we will ever get this evening, well done Blues.’

‘My only gripe with the game is we went off the boil when we could have really gone to town on a poor Newcastle team, it may sound hard on the team but if I was the manager I would go to town on them, for not going for as many goals as they could get.’

‘5-0 was enough, could have had more but i’m very happy with the result. Some can find a negative in anything.’

‘I remember that for the decades before the money came in, I used to always consider that there was a lot of affinity between the fans of CITY, Newcastle, Villa, West Ham etc. I am just grateful that the sheik chose us (he could have chosen any club) so that I do not have that pain anymore.’

‘They are more pessimistic even than City fans.’

‘Newcastle would be ideal candidates for a bit of investment if not for this ffp bollocks. Especially with the new tv deal. I wonder how much of that will end up disappearing.’

‘A new owner with a few quid chucks in similar investment as a one off even; Newcastle suddenly have a start at the top 6.’

‘Too much passing and not enough shooting.’

‘Anyone starting to think we can make a game of it against Barca?!’

‘Barca are a shade better than Newcastle.’

‘Defending shaky at times but Hart had it under control mostly.’

‘Enjoyable but let’s not get carried away. Newcastle were absolute dogs**t and Dzeko decided to wake up because Bony has arrived.’

‘While there was some excellent play from our lads, I thought Newcastle allowed us to do exactly as we wished….we probably should have scored 10.’

‘I seem to be alone in thinking that at least in the first half Newcastle weren’t that bad.’

‘Bit pi**ed off we declared at five with 38 minutes remaining.’

‘Up here in Newcastle you can feel the supporters pain.’

‘If I were a Newcastle fan, I’d be mightily pissed off about their attitude for the last twenty minutes or so. Granted, they’d been blown away, it was over. But they actually played as if they’d got a point, and they were happy with it. I would have expected them to at least try to get a goal back, to salvage a bit of self-respect, and to offer something to the travelling fans.’
