Smh, at lease we got a point... J.Rodwell is awful, I don't even understand why we even got him
Battered at home and relied on a dubious penalty! Dortmund were class!
If utd won that penalty you would have been crying penalty all day, give me a break! I do agree though, Dortmund outclassed them, all match.
That's not the point, the point is did you think it was a penalty? And yes I probably would have said it was a penalty if it was my club because I am bias towards my own club. Still Man City have not had a clean sheet in all competitions and I can't see them getting out of the group now or winning the league with such a poor defence.
You should be glad they were playing city and not utd.
UTD would have been battered.
Indeed and City were unlucky really as Dortmunds only goal came from a mistake the defence was bang on all night. Citys tactics were bang on although dangerous all night.
Man City don't deserve a draw. Dortmund were cutting through them like butter. If it wasn't for Joe Hart Dortmund would have won for sure.
Agreed. A draw for Joe Hart is justified. For the team as a whole though I am not so sure. Hart was great tonight.
It was Mancinis tactics he let Dortmund boss City about as Dortmund like to bring all players upfield. They tried to pass over the players to Dzeko at the front and it worked great for the first 20 minutes and onlmost got City a couple of early goals until Dortmund realised what City were doing, closed up the gap and stopped it. So instead of changing things up straight away Mancini as usual kept things going and then game offside after offside. Mancini was completely to blame for the draw. City was the better team for first 10 minutes and last 10 when they finally switched tactics and stopped trying to lob it over Dortmund. To be fair though Mancinis tactics DID work and the only goal scored against City was a mistake from a bad back pass. that lead to a goal.
Disappointed, well i am always disappointed with a Draw. But this was a great game to watch. But this was Dortmund's game all the way through, i'd say City were luck that they went home with a Draw and a point.
Can someone explain the handball rule to me again? I thought I understood it, but clearly not. HOW is that a handball? Just HOW?
Yeah I'm with you. I really wish they would start being consistent when applying the rule and deciding what is an "intentional handball". Remember last Euro? The rule (or applicaiton of it) clearly changed between the first 2 weeks and the rest of the tournament. By the way, if you want to see a worse example than today, youtube the semi-finale of the Olympics for women between Canada and the States, you'll see a handball called against a Canadian player that will make you cry!
City was just like Chelsea last year, but more lucky.
no Chelsea were way more lucky
Borussia Dortmund should have taken all 3 points. Manchester City were LUCKY to have taken a point, Joe Hart was phenomenal. The penalty was cheap as it hit Subotic on his knee before it bounced and hit his arm. Unlucky for BVB. Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid will exit the group that's for sure based on today's performance.
Hart can certainly hold his head up high. He had a solid game.
the manchester teams have rode their luck this week. they need to up their game if they want something out of europe this season.
This was embarrassing for city, Dortmund beat them like a red headed step child. That penalty was one of the worst and most undeserving or penalties if all time. City better just fight for that Europa league spot cause Madrid and Dortmund are definitely going through
one of the most one sided games ive seen in a while, score could have been anything but for hart.
You obviously missed the united, spurs match then..
Yeah, United absolutely battered spurs in that second half and had 87% possession in it.
that game was 2 sided. spurs were good in the first half and united were better in the second. in this match dortmund dominated from the first minute. you're delusional.
Dortmund showing they are a force to be reckoned with. They do seem to be missing the spark that is Kagawa from last season in the league but im sure after this performance there starting to adjust without him. Just shame that majority of the chances fell to Gotze who is an amazing talent with bags and bags of potential and ability but lacks a goal scoring touch that many players his style seem to also lack. Its going to be tough for City since anything less then 2 wins from Ajax games is going to end their chance of knock out stages and i can see Ajax having good odds on getting something at their ground. tough group for city but tbh i think they will continue to struggle in europe aslong as mancini is in charge he has a very poor european record at his previous clubs(got demolished by both liverpool and then Man U in consecutive seasons in knockout stages)
i wonder if balotelli will ever miss a pen.. i almost hope he can go one better than le tissier and score every one he takes (as long as they aint vs utd)
