Getting tougher?

City this season have been like Arsenal, but with more money and fewer points.  On our day we’ve played some miraculously good football, but on difficult away trips we’ve been shown up as physically and mentally weak.

We drew 2-2 having been 2-1 up at Hull and 2-1 up at Newcastle.  We conceded a lead to draw 1-1 at Craven Cottage.  At home we’ve been even worse: losing to 2-1 to Spurs after going ahead, and 3-1 to Chelsea.  Against Liverpool we were 2-0 up and lost 3-2.

But today we battled back from 2-0 down with two minutes remaining to get a point.  Robinho (via Andre Ooijer) set up Danny Sturridge on 88 minutes, before Sturridge returned the favour for the 93rd minute equaliser.

Of course, the real way of showing mental strength would have been to take one our of early chances and then grind out a 1-0.  But for now, this will do.
