Kidd took temporary charge of City following Roberto Mancini's dismissal earlier this month, and watched the team come from three goals down to grab a last-gasp winner in St Louis.

City trailed to goals from Demba Ba, Cesar Azpilicueta and Oscar despite dominating the first half but Javi Garcia began the fightback before Edin Dzeko's double and a Micah Richards clincher.

Kidd said: "I thought we were unlucky to go in 2-0 down but the players were tremendous.

"They have had a tough couple of weeks after losing the manager and the FA Cup final. It has been a draining, emotional couple of weeks.

"They have done great work in New York with the appearances and events for the club, they have done great work.

"We only had one training session, so that might be the secret. You can't say enough about them."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
