Had a weird night amongst the city fans. Stadium half empty at kick off due to a fucking car on the tram line to Ashton. Thought we did great first half but sat back waaaay too much second half and seemed to be waiting to give them the game.
Some great defending blocks and I thought Howard had a great game.
Was right at the corner where they had a stonewall penalty disallowed - you should have heard the citeh fans when they realised the ref hadn't given a penalty, magic!
I was as far away as I was at Newcastle from the Everton fans, but whereas the noisy end of Geordies drowned out the Everton fans, here all you could here was the chants of the evertonians! Citeh fans are shit. Everton fans are awesome.
Gotta say the Etihad is a fucking lovely stadium mind, great facilities and awesome padded seats.
But took me 15 minutes longer to get back to my Manchester home from this game than it takes me to get home from games at Goodison. Stupid trams.
Also met Trevor Sinclair outside the ground. Erm, woot.
