Nice to see the fake doctor preparing his excuses for this season.Looks like " all our players are injured again" is going to be this seasons mantra.c.t.i.d.
You're quite right! Religion has no place in football, hence he was rightly booked
Why anti-Muslim referee in this match. It's so embarrassing EPL practice hated of Islam. Thank you Nasri for Eid Mubarak. Despite playing on the day of Eid Mubarak. What a shame Britain. Human right where you are. Do not know how to talk only. But did not do anything. Islam forever. lest we boycott the Premier League. Why not give card with Teves when do the same action. Remove the card Nasri . Do not involve religion in the Premier League. What a shame EPL.
Jack C the reason is probably because it wasn't a foul in the first place. Shame about the offside goal everyone except the officials could see it, can't expect the little darlings to get everything right but hey thats football. Lets hope serious injury doesn't blight the Premier league this season its better to see two good sides at full strength rather than one having half the side missing through injury as was the case with Man United most of last season only to hand City a Piric victory with the last kick of the last match. Still a new season starts and lets hope it is talked about by the football on the pitch rather than referees and major inuries making most of the headlines Good luck to all and may the best Team win
Happy Eid Mubarak for a wining goal....
How come Tevez didn't get booked for showing a slogan on his shirt after scoring, but Nasri did? Surely managers must get annoyed when players do this. It might prove crucial later on in the season when they get a ban for accumulating yellow cards.
@ Jack C 252 - yes, MU sold Sylvester to Arsenal.
Funny how all the MC fans have buried their heads in the sand regarding Tevez's goal which was clearly off side. Now if this was an MU player they would all be shouting brown envelopes and refs in pocket, etc. But now that the shoe is on the other foot, silence. It won't be long now before the brown envelope brigade comes out of the woodwork again. How much did Mancini pay for this win against a very spirited and hard done by Southampton?
Hilarious.....!! The usual set of illiterate rags and foreigners who don't even know where Manchester is, let alone ever having been there commenting on a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with them. Go and support your own teams and stop polluting the web. Fair play to Southampton. They gave it their best but it's difficult to play against a side that has quality in every department and not just the will to win. A winning start for our boys. Off to Liverpool next weekend. Hope we can repeat the dose there and get the season off to a flyer - again. Night, night saddos. Go back under your rock.
Sad to see linesmen not having glasses
Tevez's goal was a 2m offside 4 officials don't see that on the opening of the premier?
How sad people haven't got enough use of the English language to comment without using FOUL language. Give us all a break and learn how to speak coherently (hope you all understand that). Probably not.
249 by asd does that ASD mean a stupid #$%$ City dont win 3--2 allthe time sometimes they win 1 --- SIX get it right up you
A wins a win rags now go try and win yours against the team that F cked u!!! last season lol
Arseanl will survive without VPC. Not a single palyer is unreplaceable. It is up to th to the remaining of the club players to raise and stand to face this as a challenge. Do you think Mr fergie will win just because of VPC? Who will feed him the same as Arsenal players did last year? Has ManU ever sell a playet to Arsenal in the past?
Apparently, the tackler did not receive even a yellow card. How many injuries we shall see in the league before refs go to school to learn how to direct a match. Just because Citey is champion that Mr Webb will a;;ow such physical plays without punishment. Fans want to see a winner not a butcher.
bret you are on the ball , with intellect like that you could manage united
I think City will win 3-2.
3-2 again can you city scums get even luckier
same old same old City win on goal difference who would of thought it up you RAGarse knobs

Tevez put in a typical all-action display, but for creating City's first goal and scoring the winner Nasri gets the nod.
