Man City relying too much on Robinho

Stephen Ireland admits Manchester City's players are relying too heavily on Robinho. “After the game (against Newcastle) we sat and chatted amongst ourselves and we knew we had not been good enough all over the pitch," said the midfielder. “There were times when we were all guilty of expecting and relying on other people to produce something and that isn’t right. "It felt like we had lost that game and not got a point and now we have to make sure we put on a show for the fans and win Sunday’s game against Stoke."
