Another home draw for the Blues - Here's what the fans had to say. The next Your Shout will be after Sunday's trip to Fulham: firstname.lastname@example.org
The only positive aspect of the disappointing draw is that it is now three clean sheets in a row for us.
After a timid performance from both sides in midweek I think we were all hoping for a positive performance against Birmingham. Although we had 21 shots, apart from Milner's attempt that was cleared off the line and Tevez's disallowed goal we were restricted to half chances due to agonisingly slow build up play.
Still fourth and three points clear. Last season we complained about the defence. Well we need to have a right balance in attack too. Mancini has still not put out the best starting 11 this season.
We will never win anything with a team that's afraid to attack. Not the best game I've seen by any stretch of the imagination.
The truly great teams pick themselves up when they are in trouble and we need to rally around the team, around the players, and around the manager. Plenty of games to come, let's look ahead and get a solid three points from the next match. Come on City!

The team seem scared to go forward or put something together, they dither around outside the box making tiny complicated useless passes, and there are very rarely stunning goals - A lot of ours are scrappy.
