    Quote of the Weekend
    “When you are yelling ‘Attack! Attack! Attack!’ and you attack for 85 minutes, you have to think as a fan, is it all right to yell that? They want us to know we have to score. My mother knows that and my grandmother knows that. Goals are always the most important thing.”

    Tweet of the Weekend
    “Big two points dropped by City. Pellegrini at fault. Poor decisions after Bony injured.”
    • Former Manchester City star Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) is less than impressed by the leaders’ goalless draw at Aston Villa.
