First off, very disappointing results take place when you think one game in the PL is walk in the park and that's how I felt our players where playing right until Stoke City scored. A win against Liverpool and we came in over confident which Stoke gave us a reality check. Slip ups happen but City lacked imagination and drive, the team was off.

ON the other hand,I'm not a fan of the Jovetic&Aguero pairing just because I feel like they are too similar type players and you don't want that on the field, you want to have a target man with aerial ability which comes in the names of Dzeko and Negredo but with Negredo out it just shows how important keeping Dzeko healthy is for us. MP should have changed his formation and brought Fernandiho and Fernando and drove Yaya forward and let him run havoc in the box with a dude his size he would have to got one in and Fernandinho has taken loads of shots from distance which would have trouble Begovic even more.

Anyhow props to Hughes, he had a plan and it worked. He marked our attacking players with at least 2 players from Stoke, gave City's attack little to none room to create anything and should more determination to keep us out by throwing their bodies around to block shots. They countered when City just stopped thinking and Mame Biram Diouf put in an unbelievable solo goal leaving City red faced.

Looking forward, the next 3 games are important and we need to win. Its going to be tough but we can do it!

Credit to Mr Mark Hughes, he came with a plan and it worked. I think we played well but Mr Hughes men were well disciplined in their defending caught us on the counter and that's basically the story there. Well played sir.
Stoke were deserved winner. They wanted more than us. Congratulations to them.

I think they played whole time in their box defending then relied on counter attack, well we are the champions we should be able to overcome situations like that. Should practise their long shots etc.
@Snitch, they were not lucky, they could have penalty at first half, that could have changed the whole complexity of game.
They came with master plan to sit and attack on counter which they executed perfectly.Our super stars did not show any determination at all, shame on them(2 shorts on target at home against Stoke)

Edit: This comment goes after Snitch's comment
@ManCityBlue

They wanted it more than us?? How? I count them lucky today

whats wrong with Footy... posting are really getting bungled up
+1
MP completely got it wrong in his team selection, it should not have got Augero and Jovetic pair, we needed tall striker in the box for such defending team.
Even if Dzeko was not ready, Toure and Jovetic would have been better option with Fernando/dinho in midfield.
It is bad time to loose before international break.

Kolarav, Hart and Dihoo were the culprits but all of our players were too bad.

Edit: It should be after BlueMoon's comment.
Yeah the Aguero/Jov partnership did not look good at all. But in Pellegrini's defense this is the 1st time the two have started together. We also don't know if Dzeko was capable of 90 min today after his knock from last week.
Hart ...... not good goal keeping
The more you see it the worse it looks. Smh
Also Fernando makes a difference...
fk won't be easy to turn this around
Team news
City XI: Hart, Sagna, Kolarov, Kompany (C), Demichelis, Fernando, Nasri, Yaya Toure, Silva, Jovetic, Aguero

Subs: Caballero, Clichy, Zabaleta, Fernandinho, Milner, Navas, Dzeko
No Zaba?
Rotation, sagna needs game too but surprisingly fernandinho hasnt start any game yet. But wow, jovetic+aguero! Finally
I just heard Er's interview he said Zaba is banned in CL game so now Sagna needs playing time before CL game and same goes to Augero.
As long as them orcs don't get Aguero injured, I already got a heart attack
Potentially good news for City. Uefa to revamp the seeding system. Under the new system champions from their respective leagues will be seeded into pot 1. No more group of deaths.

IMO, the champions from their respective leagues should be the ONLY ones allowed in the competition and have them play each other and whichever team ends up with the most points, that team then wins the CL. I mean it's called the CHAMPIONS league for a reason, right?
That wont be much fun and it wont be that popular either. A lot of world class teams would miss out. The whole point is to face some of the best teams from around Europe not just the champions.
+4
The "fun" part is subjective. It would be fun for me to watch the Champions of each league battle it against each other. Plus, it will make each league more competitive as the teams will have extra motivation to finish first. Oh...and if that's the whole point, then they shouldn't call it "the Champions League"...
So no Barcelona, Madrid, Dortmund, Arsenal, Chelsea?
+4
^^Hmmm...did you read my comments above...read them again and if you still can't figure out the answer to your question, then let me know because you might have a far more important thing to worry about than that...
I did read it again. You said the champions of each league. The teams I mentioned didn't win their league so they wouldn't be in champions league.

Edit: and i was agreeing with Yaldho that's why I said no Barcelona, Madrid...and etc.
+4
When the CL was introduced in 1991 or thereabouts, a lot of people complained about the same thing you are complaining about Foooty. To be honest I feel the champions only + round robin format would be very boring. This format is way better, makes more money, but most importantly, adds meaning to the CL.
Is jovetic a starter for you guys or Dzeko?
As of right now, both are starters. Looks-like Pellegrini wants to introduce Aguero very slowly due his injury record and Negredo is out injured.
