Media Watch - December 21st

Here's a round-up of the latest online and newspaper media coverage about City, and unsurprisingly one story in particular features prominently.

Bristol City "looked like the Premier League team" during the win over Manchester United in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals according to Lee Johnson in the Evening Standard.

Jose Mourinho 'admits some Manchester United players weren't up for it' according to the Independent.

The Telegraph's spin on his comments paint Mourinho in a somewhat more gracious light with the United manager calling it a "beautiful day for football".

The Metro speculate that Jose Mourinho 'snubbed' the offer of a glass of wine with City gaffer Lee Johnson following defeat in the Cup.

The Independent reports that Lee Johnson can't wait to face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

There's a Nottingham take on it all in the Nottingham Post - reporting that Brian Clough's long-standing League Cup record stands for another year following defeat for Mourinho.

The Metro focus on the moment Johnson swung around a ball boy in celebration following Korey Smith's injury time winner.

The Mirror ask whether Lee Johnson used Mourinho's own methods against him following a 15 minute meeting between the pair prior to kick-off last night.

Former United and City star (and part-time rapper) Andy Cole agrees with Jose Mourinho that Bristol City were 'lucky' last night according to the Daily Star.

The same publication evens out their reaction coverage by featuring Craig Bellamy's assessment that "Bristol City were the better team on the night and deserved to go through".

Lee Johnson looks forward to taking on the "beast" of Manchester City with Sky Sports.

Coverage of City's escapade's reached an international audience last night with socceroos in Australia and the interestingly named Fanchester United in the States amongst a host of international news as far and wide as Japan, India and Italy featuring the giant-killing.

Johnson jokes with the Mirror that he may have replaced dad Gary as Bristol City's most successful manager following the win.

Former City gaffer Gary Johnson is hoping for a special Christmas present from son Lee according to the Mirror.

The Mirror also praise City owner Steve Lansdown for keeping faith with Johnson during the club's record-breaking run of losses last season.

There's yet more coverage for those GIFs with BBC Newbeat the latest to dissect the social media phenomenon.
