You're actually revelling in Lampard scoring? Okay mate you do that.

I'd say what is more pathetic is finishing last season with less trophies than Arsenal rather than double the number like we did.

City deserved at least a draw and maybe a win, but also did not create that much either. Was a great game between two top teams and these will definitely be first and second this season.

Dean spent the first half giving out cards like a poker dealer, so it was inevitable that someone was going to get sent off. It was a physical game, and I don't think anyone but the ref had a problem with that. Zabaleta was stupid to react, but the fact that that was only his second foul of the entire game says everything, and the first one was never a yellow. Once you're on a yellow, you've got to be more careful, but you generally expect to get some warning from the ref rather than being sent off, unless it's a really reckless one. Let's face it, neither foul was malicious, cynical or particularly bad, especially the first one, which he was actually trying to pull out of at the time.

Anyway, I though we were comfortably the better team and the stats show it, other than the only one that's important. It was obviously important to not let them win today and we did that. Had we kept 11 men, I was fairly confident the goal would come and they wouldn't be able to respond (our new-look defence was incredible).

Doing okay so far. The Stoke game was the real disappointment, but 6th place after a start including Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea is respectable. We looked like we finally hit form yesterday after a shaky start, and it's come at the right time with a slightly easier (on paper) run coming up. And hopefully all of the other defenders in the league have been shown by Kompany and Mangala how to deal with Costa.

Yeah Dean is a crap referee I am so sad he is a namesake of mine. Nearly ruined the game but luckily your guys plugged on in 10 men.

I actually think he's one of the better referees. He didn't really make many mistakes yesterday, he just set a bad precedent early on and then had to be too strict throughout the game.

Don't follow how he does usually for City, but I am sure he hates Arsenal

Arsenal fans are sure every referee hates Arsenal though. ;)
Nah that mug in particular, I am not normally too bad otherwise, more used to Italian refs screwing Roma over :D

another mancunt crying about a ref decision, a correct decision at that. It took a chelsea legend to score against his former club, pathetic. :D
awww poor little baby chelski fan mad that they couldnt win when the ref handed the game to them. playing with 1 more player for 34 minutes and a clear penalty on dzeko denied...
