Man City's Barry: I thought we'd blown it

Gareth Barry confesses he thought Manchester City's title hopes were over during yesterday's amazing win against QPR.

He was replaced by Edin Dzeko 21 minutes from the end of Sunday's final game against QPR, with the Blues losing 2-1.

But in stoppage time Dzeko and then Sergio Aguero netted to turn the entire campaign on its head and end City's 44-year wait for a league title.

"At 2-1 down I was thinking this is done," Barry said.

"I looked up and saw a helicopter and wondered if it was the main trophy being flown north.

"Towards the end, I was sitting there watching our fans leaving, just thinking 'Here we go again'.

"In a way, it makes it more special but I would have preferred an easier win."
