Officiating has been a bit frustrating but it's the goals we conceded which were the problem in the end. Soft

The ref has given everything the crowd has asked for.

yeah but I mean getting booed like that. Its not like he dived or anything. He was fouled. It was a legit call for a penalty. Whether the ref gives it or not is another thing.

When Luis starts playing desperate football we get into a bad headspace offensively

Moses is a waste of space, Alberto should have been instead.

Really poor keeping for the second goal, but we were just not clinical enough to get us over the line.

Harsh....very harsh lost. A game we clearly do not deserve to lose. Having said that.... Dear Brendan Rodgers, can you please get your coaching staffs to look into our set piece defending, pronto! We have been through this all season long and we are still going through it again.

Beaten by poor refereeing decisions and not taking our nailed on chances. Up against the best team in the league - no disgrace

Ref had nothing to do with Sterling side footing over from 5 yards. Or Coutinho not scoring from a great chance. Yes the offside was wrong but he could and should have given several pens against Skrtel.

Proud with the effort of the lads today. Being disappointed to leave the Ethiad with nothing is a sign of how far this team has come.

Also the bench. Zero impact there again. Is why last summer was so frustrating

Allen best player for either side. Should beat the chavs and their negative Jose footy if we play this way.

Our finishing is what let us down. But fuck Lee mason and those half retarded officials with that awful display. Aside from robbing the first half goal they made soo many bad decisions and cards

Johnson, Sterling and Coutinho had great chances and missed. Ref decisions come and go and the offside one was poor in particular but you have to put easy chances away not moan about reffing decisions.

Gerrard and Sturridge being injured weakens your squad...it happens.

Decent enough performance, refereeing decisions didn't help. We'll be ok for top four I think based on recent performances, but damn that was frustrating. Wasted a few good chances and conceded two crappy goals. Hard not to feel bugged down by this result even though it's nothing fatal.

Thought we played ok but in the end feel we do need to have ambition to at least take something from each game. Not really one for honorable defeats especially when we led the game and made those defensive errors

Should have got a draw though really despite that

heads up boys! never a deserved win for city. we should get at least a draw. but if you cant defend kompany at corners, you have to avoid them.
with stevie, sturridge and hopefully agger back on, we should be more than confident to stay near the top for the rest of the season.

and please no blame on mignolet...

Alberto would have done much more than Moses. I would have put Aspas in earlier rather than Moses. We had him in on the 60 odd minute, and he was extremely waste of space. Send him back to Chelsea. Fucking hell.
