It was so new to them they collectively had no idea how to respond. Marcelo Real Madrid Jersey . Theya?d just watched their team crumble in the final three minutes, allowing Real Madrid to score two goals and defeat them 3-2. The cluba?s fanbase were split in their reactions. Many longstanding supporters were used to disappointment and called in the post-match talk show to say that being disappointed with a 3-2 loss at Real Madrid in the Champions League shows how far the club had come. Yet, there was a section of the supporters who expected more. Millions had been invested into the team and, they said, they wanted to see their club challenging amongst the true great teams of European football. And yet they still wait. Two years have passed for Manchester City since that night at Madrid, but there has been an all too familiar feeling for their players and fans when it comes to the Champions League. It is a tournament that played a huge part in the sacking of Roberto Mancini, after back-to-back years of failing to qualify for the knockout stage, and the hiring of Manuel Pellegrini, who had been seen as an overachiever in the tournament with Villarreal and Malaga. Yet, the familiar tales kept on coming. Not that anyone is feeling sorry for them. City remain relative new boys to the big scene and nowhere has that been more evident than in the UEFA co-efficient system that has handed them difficult groups in each of their four campaigns so far. In 2011, it was Bayern Munich and Napoli that stopped them from progressing, while in 2012, they were exposed, finishing last in a true a?championsa? group that consisted of Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid and Ajax. Last season, under Pellegrini, they performed much better, winning five of six matches, but still finished second to reigning champions Bayern Munich. That forced them up against a group winner in the last 16 and they were outclassed over two legs by Barcelona. This year they were handed Bayern Munich. Again. For the third year out of four. And CSKA Moscow for the second-straight season. After losing in Munich on Matchday One of the tournament, City were already facing up to the prospect of likely finishing second once again in their group. Such a scenario, of course, is not always a bad thing, provided City can show that they have the qualities to be mature enough to get the job done in Europe against top teams. Such a test was presented to them on Tuesday night against the fourth team in Group E, high-flying Roma. Two years on from that night in Madrid, the fans were no longer divided in their expectations. Before they played Roma, City had played 21 Champions League matches in four seasons, won eight, drawn four and lost nine. The eight wins had come only against four teams a Villarreal, Viktoria Plzen, CSKA Moscow a all twice a and twice against Bayern Munich when, each time, the German giants had already qualified for the last 16. City fans werena?t the only ones thinking the club had something to prove. I fancy City to put down a Champions League marker and beat Roma convincingly tonight, tweeted Michael Owen, only hours before the match. Whenever European footballa?s elite competition comes around almost as familiar as Manchester Citya?s Champions League opponents is the na?ˉve, borderline biased, analysis from sections of the English media around a Premier League opponent. It happened again at the Etihad on Tuesday. Tony Gale, in charge of providing colour commentary, said about Roma early in the game, that Roma was not as frightening a side as it has been down the years. Shortly before half-time he added that City shouldna?t be giving this team a chance. The same City who lost to Stoke at home earlier in the month indeed struggled to insert any form of dominance on the game, but Roma played a huge part in that. After 25 minutes, it was already 1-1. City had been handed the perfect start when Maicon pulled Sergio Agueroa?s shirt and the Argentine stroked home the penalty. The moment of the match, though, happened midway through the first half when Francesco Totti scored his first-ever goal in England with a magnificent finish over Joe Hart. Hart was at fault for being slow to react, before a key slip, but not as culpable as Vincent Kompany who, again, stepped up and wandered out of the backline a to track the intelligent Totti a and Yaya Toure, who simply allowed Seydou Keita to stroll past him into midfield. It was hardly a shining moment for Citya?s spine. Tactically Pellegrinia?s side were na?ˉve, playing with just two central midfielders, and Romaa?s midfield trio took over the game in the first half as Totti dropped deep and even made it four-versus-two at times. David Silva was then forced to drift off the left flank to make up a three and thata?s why Maicon had so much space to get forward on that flank. Shortly before the hour, Pellegrini removed Edin Dzeko for Frank Lampard and City had more control on the game, but they werena?t good enough to go on and win the match, as they couldna?t reach the level of tempo that this club so often shows domestically. a?We didna?t play well,a? admitted the manager afterwards. More familiar tales for City. It was the fourth-successive Champions League season where they had failed to win their opening home match. A team that has won two Premier League titles on the back of some wonderful home performances will know all too well what a challenge that now brings in terms of qualification. They now must win back-to-back clashes with CSKA, something they did last year, and likely find a way to win at home to Bayern Munich and/or in Rome on the final matchday if they want to progress. They certainly have the players to accomplish such a feat, but the truth is the English champions once again failed to deliver when asked to sit at the top table for European footballa?s showpiece event. Any more performances like this one on a European night and City will be ending their Champions League campaign far too prematurely for a fourth-successive season. Sergio Ramos Jersey . Expensive. The NFL fined Tomlin $100,000 on Wednesday for interfering with Baltimores Jacoby Jones on a kickoff return in the third quarter of a 22-20 loss to the Ravens on Thanksgiving night. Danilo Jersey . -- Arizona pitcher Bronson Arroyo is expected to miss a week to 10 days because of a back injury. .S. womens soccer team to a 2-0 win over China in Colorado in the afternoon.Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been criticised for not using Anthony Martial as a striker, but is he more effective on the wing? The statistics throw up some interesting results Anthony Martial has been one of the most talked-about players in the Premier League since Manchester United made him the most expensive teenager in football history on the final day of the summer transfer window.At first, the discussion centred on how the little-known Frenchman could possibly justify a transfer fee that could reportedly rise as high as 61.5m. Louis van Gaal and the player himself called it crazy money, and many observers saw it as a desperate move by United after missing out on bigger names. Martial, though, didnt take long to silence his doubters. He marked his Premier League debut by coming off the bench to score an unforgettable solo goal in a 3-1 win over Liverpool on September 12, and a week later netted a clinical brace in a 3-2 victory over Southampton at St Marys Stadium.Suddenly, the crazy transfer fee looked like a shrewd piece of business for a side desperately lacking spark in the final third. Martials emergence has been one of few bright spots in Uniteds disappointing season, and with the 20-year-olds talent no longer up for debate, the discussion has turned to where exactly he is at his most effective.Van Gaal has provoked the ire of many Manchester United supporters by fielding Martial on the left flank for much of the campaign. The frustration is understandable. The former Monaco man is routinely their most threatening attacking player, after all, and with seven Premier League goals he is also joint-top of their scoring charts. Anthony Martial scores for Manchester United against Stoke in February So is Martial wasted out wide? Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry is among the leading voices to have said so, but Van Gaal has refused to bow to external pressure. The United boss has explained his stance by saying he puts the teams needs before those of any individual, but he might have been better off pointing to the stats. Anthony Martial comparison - Premier League 2015/16 PL 2015/16 Martial starting as striker Martial starting out wide Starts 9 13 Goals 2 4 Assists 1 2 Total shots per 90 mins 1.7 1.9 Shots on target per 90 mins 0.6 0.7 Chances created per 90 mins 1.1 1.2 Succ. dribbles per 90 mins 2.3 2.8 Touches per 90 mins 45.2 50.9 According to Opta, Martial has begun nine Premier League games as a striker and 13 out wide, and the stats show his starts on the flanks have been more productive in all attacking departments. There, Martial has averaged more goals, more assists, more shots, more chances created and more dribbles per 90 minutes than he has up front. Is Europa hangover real? Does playing in the competition affect a clubs domestic form? His two-goal performance against Southampton in September was an early indication of just how devastating he can be through the middle, but eight Premier League starts as a striker since have yielded no goals and only a single assist. Even more damningly, Martial has only mustered one shot on target in his last five starts up front combined. In those 450 minutes, the Red Devils claimed just two points and only managed to score twice. Anthony Martials last five starts as a striker - Premier League 2015/16 Opponent Result Mins played Goals Assists Shots on target Leicester City D 1-1 90 0 0 0 West Ham D 0-0 90 0 0 0 Bournemouth L 1-2 90 0 0 0 Stoke City L 0-2 90 0 0 1 Southampton L 0-1 90 0 0 0 It is equally significant that Uniteds results have been notably better with Martial stationed out wide. Isco Jersey. With the Frenchman starting through the middle, they have recorded three wins, two draws and four defeats, giving them an average of just 1.22 points per game. With Martial on the flank, however, their record of five wins, five draws and three defeats equates to 1.54 points per game. Manchester United with Martial starting up front v starting out wide - Premier League 2015/16 Manchester United Played Won Drawn Lost Points per game With Martial starting as striker 9 3 2 3 1.22 With Martial starting out wide 13 5 5 3 1.54 In the continued absence of the injured Wayne Rooney, it remains to be seen whether Van Gaal will keep faith with youngster Marcus Rashford or opt for Martial to lead the line in Uniteds Europa League return-leg with Liverpool and the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium on Super Sunday. United need Rooney back Wayne Rooneys return will boost United for the final stretch of the season, says Denis Law. But with the stats in mind, perhaps it wouldnt be too much of a surprise to see Martial finish the season on the flank.
