Easy win for City, at home and they have found rhythm again. Sane is literally tearing defenders apart with his pace and accuracy and if they put in half of what they did against us they'll break Wolves down very fast.

Not so much found rhythm again, rather 6 key players have returned from injury

i think you'll run the gamut with Wolves and walk away comfortable in the first half itself but then again this Wolves side have been quite impressive against top opposition. Hope its a good game.

Wolves are tricky bastards against the top six. City should still have too much for them but it'll be closer than most.

If you had to trademark a Pep's City goal, that's the one.

Typical Man City goal. 

Break the lines with a pinpoint pass, square it across 6-yard box for an easy tap in. They make it look so easy.

Am I going mental or did Fernandinho actually just get booked for cynically stopping a counterattack?

Given what other players have been sent off for similar challenges, that's the right decision. The follow through works against him.

Aye, any hope of wolves getting anything has evaporated with that red.

Red card for Boly. Game over. Looks harsh for me. Won the ball and his foot is barely an inch off the ground. What a sport this is now where I know the majority of people will argue with me that it was a stonewall red.

Man City fans may argue justice after Boly's hand of god goal against them at Molyneux.

Not saying I agree, but just unfortunate. On the flip side, I've seen worse challenges go unpunished.

That's just unlucky. That said, City were always going to win this game.

Cor Jesus went flying in to the post. Ouch.

Can anyone remember the last time one of those challenges actually caused a serious injury? There must have been 50-100 red cards given for "That could have broken his leg but didn't" since the last time one had to be given for an actual Shawcross style leg breaker. Maybe the one that did Coleman was the last one.

Furthermore, McCarthy suffered a horror injury last season for us off a purely accidental collision with Rondon who correctly wasn't punished for it, so I still don't see why what used to be deemed good tackles now have to be red cards if you clip someone above the ankle on the follow through and give a 1 in 500 chance of seriously hurting them.

Anyway, I'm pissing into the wind by still arguing against it. The toothpaste is well and truly out of the tube.

It is harsh but the game has changed rightly or wrongly, and that challenge is in the dangerous category these days.

I also think ref's have had the seed planted in their head about protecting players from dangerous challenges from the likes of Pep himself, whose been so vociferous about it previously.

Undecided on if it was or not...
