What do you make of Ryan Bennett? I watched his perforance today with interest

I used to watch him at Grimsby when he first broke into the team and at that time (League 2) he looked very accomplished for a young player. He was widely tipped to have a bright future even back then. Grimsby got a nice sell on fee when Norwich signed him which will keep us going financially until at least next season so thanks for that.

I thought today he looked a bit out of his depth at times The premier is a huge step up and you get punished for mistakes far more than the other leagues. Today he was up against a very good attack force it has to be said. Tevez and Aguero were interchanging positions all the time- that 2nd goal was a classic. I am sure with more experience however he will develop into a decent player for that level.

Haven't seen a great deal of him since his move, he was the best player on the pitch against Spurs last weekend but was pretty woeful today I thought. He just needs to learn the finer points of defending, if he improves his decision making and his positioning I think he'll be a great defender for us. He's still raw at this level as a lot of our players are, but I think the two Bennetts will be massive for us next season. Ryan at the back and Elliot out on the wing.

Was at Wembley today, and I am absolutely gutted. The worst feeling I have ever had as an Everton fan. sad.gif

Well the title is back in the balance

it is now in the hands of both teams, If one of them wins out they will be champions, next Monday is gonna be huge.

Could the title really be decided on Goal difference??

I'd make City marginal favourites now, though Mancini is just playing mind games telling everybody that they can't possibly win it.

It's going to be years before us Norwich City fans will forget the 6-1 roasting Man City gave us at home last week.

If it comes down the goal difference then City has a large margin to play with that almost amounts to an extra point in the bag. Hope they do it anyway, Man Utd are a pretty smug club and it would be great if they won nothing at all this year.

Surprised that nobody has mentioned the events of today yet. United winning 1-0 and City down 2-1 going into stoppage time, a Dzecko header and then a goal by Aguero give City the title. Unfortunately Bolton didn't win so QPR stay up. Fantastic end to a great season though.

On a personal note, 12th place for us is a fantastic result for our first year back in the top flight. Would have snapped your hand off if you offered 17th at the start of the year, so to finish 5 places above there is tremendous.

We need to go away and re-build this summer to mount another offensive next year. Same again would be excellent and our finances at the club are certainly more settles now. I think the most important thing this off-season is keeping a hold of Paul Lambert.

Player of the year went to Grant Holt, and you can hardly be surprised. 15 league goals and 17 all together is some accomplishment. Hopefully we can get Kyle Naughton back with us next year. We need a left back, another striker and probably another winger too.

Certainly going to be interesting to see who we bring in, but we are still Premier League biggrin.gif

I'm a little disappointed I didn't get to see the Bolton fans crying, but a cracking day of football nonetheless.

Brilliant day of Football, just amazing end to the season

Would of been even better if Bolton had won and sent QPR as a result of Citys comeback, but still can;t argue with the drama that happened.

One thing I'm getting annoyed at is all the people on Facebook and such declaring City have just bought the title and don't deserve it, I guess I missed the news that Rooney, De Gea, Ferdinand, Smalling, Jones, Evra, Vidic, Valencia, Young were all signed for free.

Out of interest, why all the hatred for QPR?

Exactly! Someone actually posted on Twitter that Man Yoo had actually spent more on the starting 11 today than City had - I'm not sure whether that is true but it wouldn't surprise me!

Great last day of the season, where it is up in the air right until the final whistle!

Just hoping that next week's Scottish Cup Final isn't as dramatic, although if I get to celebrate at the end then I'll happily go through the emotions like the City fans today! cool.gif

Joey Barton, Neil Warnock, and now miserable fit Mark Hughes. All their fans talking rubbish at the start of the season about how we were doomed and they had brought in elite talent etc etc etc. just can't stand the guys

Well I can understand the distaste for Barton, and I don't like Warnock, but having said that firing Warnock when they did was a real dumb move.

We finished above Liverpool, so I'm satisfied.

Gutted that City won the league though. I really do hate that club, second only in football to Liverpool.

True, but at least that got him off my tv screen.

I wonder what happens to Barton, it's automatically 4 games for his 2nd straight red but FA shy have to ban him for longer after his kick out at Aguero after the red card.
