These comments from Manchester City fans, before AND after losing to Newcastle United, top off that victory nicely.

Incredible what it does to a set of supporters, having a Sheikh come in and deliver such expectations.

Not hope, expectations.

Read and enjoy.

Manchester City fans comment via their top Blue Moon message board:

PRE-MATCH

‘I’m up there tomorrow with one of my sons, so would love it to be 6-0 … but although Newcastle have lost all their top-six games this season, all but 2 of them were tight affairs / single-goal margins.

It’s the way Newcastle play – just hanging on for grim life all game and hoping to nick one. So it could be tighter than we’d want?’

‘Hope we batter them.

City 3-0.’

‘Our £50m defender (Mendy) cant defend.’

‘Bullsh.. And how much defending are you expecting us to do at St James Park?’

‘Got a nice 3 days up there, can’t wait.’

Tough game with Rafa’s negative sh… football with ten men behind the ball until last five minutes so need an early goal then few more in second half.’

‘There is no logical reason why we won’t win this comfortably.’

‘Once again…. I can`t see anything other than a comfortable win.’

‘A convincing 0-2 would be great with no injuries.

The bar codes are having a torrid time at the moment and I really would love to see us humiliate them with a 5 goal pumping.’

‘We always win against Newcastle.’

‘Another sell out at St James today with 50k geordies roaring in the North East hotbed of footballing passion. …….errr not!’

‘Struggled last season in a rare off day up north. No reason to not start the match with our strongest possible team try and obtain a decent lead and sub when necessary.’

‘Hope the pitch and weather is decent, will make it a long 90 minutes for Newcastle if it is.’

POST-MATCH:

‘Shi..

Title race over.’

‘Fu.. off city, that’s all I have to say…just fu.. off.’

‘Fu..ing abysmal.

Worst performance for a long, long time and a fu..ing terrible time for it to happen.’

‘Disgraceful performance.’

‘It’s the hope that kills you. I had a feeling something bad was looming tonight. 4 losses in the league within 8 weeks, that’s Europa League form.’

‘Too slow too predictable and too arrogant

Our full backs, good god they are sh…’

‘Good for 24 seconds.’

‘Horrible performance, scousers win tomorrow I think the league has gone this season. Ref was a c… again got nothing all night.’

‘1 league title in 5 seasons then, pretty fu..ing disappointing.’

‘Strongest team picked and an absolute dogsh.. performance.

Lost for words after watching that tonight.’

‘The night we lost the title.

Looks like those cup games destroyed our rhythm completely. Or they were all drugged tonight.’

‘I didn’t think we had it in us to play that bad.’

‘Looks like we need to go back into the market for a pair of fullbacks.’

‘I don’t know where we go from here as a club, we spend years coveting Pep as the answer to all our problems and here we are losing to relegation fodder.’

‘Titles gone. Embarrasing performance. Keystone cops at the back, usual crap set pieces and clueless up front.

Newcastle gone behind in 12 games this season and lost the lot but came up against us and our complacency after going 1 up.’

‘Build up play was slow, passing was poor, slow to react, no real movement in final third and some really poor defending. We looked petrified as soon as Newcastle got in our final third. 7 points is a big gap but 14 more games.’

‘Scoring for fun against Burton, Rotherham and Burnley reserves and the players thinking Newcastle is a stroll in the park.’

‘It has to be bloody fat Spanish waiter to help Liverpool win the title. In the stars for them.’

‘Forget about the scousers dropping points, we won’t make up the gap anyway cos we keep on dropping points to rubbish teams.

Losses to Palace, Leicester and now fu..ing Newcastle! We don’t deserve the title.’

‘Amongst other poor displays, I was intrigued by the performances of Sane and Sterling. In a game against two banks of defenders you need someone to beat their man and, at the very least, force the opposition to alter thrir positioning. That is what both are capable of doing but neither did. Both of them either lost the ball to their marker or simply stroked it back to the defender who had passed to them, something Newcastle were more than happy to allow all evening.’

‘My stomach still feels like it’s been ripped out! It’s going to take a good few days to get over last night, absolutely gutted!’

‘Benitez relishes coming up against top passing attacking teams and sets his teams up very well.

Bottom line though and why there near the bottom, attacking wise a clueless fu..er, plays like a fat sam side, and only reason Newcastle fans not on his back is his reputation of his past glory’s.’

‘I think it’s safe to say we’re in a bad patch, Seen as we havent went through a spell like this in about 2 years!

Last night showed along with the Leicester and Palace performances that you can’t just turn up and expect to walk away with three points. Personally I think all those defeats we didn’t work hard enough didn’t look like we had hunger to put those teams to bed even after leading in each of them.’

‘That result hurt me last night. I took it too personally.’

‘I’m fed up. Every time we succeed we fail to push on. Coming into this season there was no reason that with the squad we have and a bit of topping up every year to keep it fresh we couldn’t have gone on and made this league ours for the next 5 years.’

‘Newcastle were never really in the game but took their chances when they got them.’

‘Teams like Newcastle make the game more physical and a scrap and we struggle, we stop creating any real chances and it happened again last night, how many times was their keeper tested in the last 20mins, not enough.’

‘I just don`t believe what I saw and still pretty much in shock.’

‘Newcastle getting some credit for the way they set up but we self destructed again after having the better of the match early on.’

‘Just climbed out from under the stairs.

Unwatchable that, like a horror movie.

However, I still can’t get out of my head, that little pompous prick, not only not allowing that goal, but actually booking Kevin, which after he took that player out, could/should have been sent off.’

‘I missed first 14 minutes, lol, but I guess they upped their game later. They were very close all the time, covering the space and pressing when needed. We were miles from our best but some part of it is also due to them frustrating us. It was definitely a good game for relegation candidates.’

‘Look, Newcastle had less of the ball than most of our opponents and only 2 shots on target.

They have a marquee coach so 24 per cent possession at home and 2 shots on target is not a masterclass. Newcastle closed their eyes, hoped for the best and got away with it.’
