Poor showing again yesterday, but you just knew it was going ot be one of those atypically City days when you saw the worst away record come to home of the City's best home record, the typically city way of losing a no lose game.

Some strike by Huddlestone though....

Did ya ever get the feeling we could be talking to each other in here?

Yea, thought we might have gotten that shout but some you get some you don't. We're lacking a lot around midfield at present, Reyna looks a beaten docket, Did hasn't fired, and Joey's doing it all on his own. Thought Ireland might have given us more, but maybe if he gets a few games after his injury he might pick up some form. Also we really need to sort out left back.

How come Welsh was the first in the list?

Anyway genuine question. With all the talk of Joey Barton being mooted for an England call-up what do you reckon your chances of keeping him will be? I'm assuming that Stevie Mac will want the majority of his squad to be involved in European competition of some sort and the chance of him getting it at City doesn't look very promising.

Same for Micah Richards, although it would definitely be in his best interest to stay at City for the next couple of years at least IMO. His development would be stunted on the Chelsea/Utd (yeah right) bench whereas he's guaranteed a game at City.

Put me in mind of a young Glenn Hoddle. But for city I think we have the nucleus of a good side. Weaver is a good keeper, Micah and Dunny are good at the back. Barton can hold his own in the midfield, and I quite like vassell. I just wish the fucker learnt how to finish!!

Our problem is we are consistantly inconsistant.

Do you think that City will manage to keep hold of playes like Richards and Barton? I understand flogging Wright-Phillips when someone like Abramovich appears chucking money at a team.

Just watching Sky Sports and apparently Joey Barton has no 'ambition or desire' to leave City. We'll see about that.

Sheffield Utd 0 - Manchester City 1 (Ireland)

Very important win yesterday. Still a long way to go, but if we can pick up points against those around us - West Ham next - the we'll be ok.

Stevie Ireland did well in a rare start, and I'd like to see him given a run of games now to prove his worth. When he came on against the rags he gave us more creativity and guille in the midfield, and he was the best midefielder on the pitch against Sheff Utd yesterday.

We still need another striker, someone who if they sign in the january transfer window will bag us 8-10 goals. In terms of strikers I'd like to see one of the following either on loan or ideally bought:

Alan Smith
James Beattie (if Smith goes to Everton)
David Nugent
Robbie Keane
Freddy Eastwood (maybe a bit of a gamble)
Peter Crouch (loan move?)
John Hartson (free to nominal fee)

Players we should get rid of. IMO of course!

Mills
Thatcher
Distin (he either signs or fucks off)
Corradi
Reyna
Dickov

Any of you watch that show on Channel M? It's behind the scenes at Man City Football Club. Maybe somebody at the club will reveal something about transfers.

Good win against the Hammers yesterday. Our record against tham away is pretty poor. But then our record away against most teams is poor! Neither team played any sexy football, but city fought the harder and wanted it more. Played in the Stuart Pearce mould which is what we need to do at the minute till we can bring someone in who can create goals and bang them away.

Two away wins on the bounce? up to 10th place? two clean sheets? Whats going on!?

I would like to see David Dunn sign in jan from birmingham. Good classy midfielder if he can avoid injury.

Bring on the Toffees!!!!!

Samaras is a greek god!!

He came on and changed/won the game for us against Everton. We need more days like this from him and less like the ones he has given us recently.

That is three for three, first time for around 17 months! Who next? Bring 'em on, come on!

And as for Micah Richards going to Chelsea for 13 million? Not a chance of it! If they offer 25 mill then maybe...

"Oh, Micah you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind! Hey Micah! Hey Micah!"

Chelsea reckon they wont be held to ransom....yeah right. You see the panic in their eyes because theyve drawn three games, fans booing, board asking questions. Hold out City and I reckon you can name your price!

I reckon we can name our price at the moment.

The funniest thing bout the whole thing is, if they hadn't bought SWP for the huge price they did, they'd probably get Micah for 20mill or so, but as SP said, with the money for SWP in the bank we don't need to offload Micah for anything less than extortion, sweet!

We'll beat them 3-1. A good cup run would do us the world of good. It did last season, then we got beat in the quarters and the season went to rat shit.

You don't even wanna know ow many pages I had to go down to reusrrect this thread!

http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30100-1272382,00.html

Word coming out of Eastleands is that Svennis has signed a 3 year deal with City and that he already has Harewood, Benayoun and someone else who's name escapes me lined up.

To be honest, I'm more than happy with this situation. While Sven has a habit of playing boring football, it couldnt have been fuckin worse than what we had at times last season and he will be able to attract a few decent players to the Club also.

Welcome Sven, happy to have ya!

Brilliant news, well all apart from the Harewood bit.

I really do hope his builds his team slowly taking it season by season.

How much is Sven on btw and does the new owner have any intension of buying/developing the ground?

Yea I'm unsure about Harewood, but he couldnt be worse than the planks we already have in there.

I'd imagine Sven is on a serious chunk of change, but he was the man for a long time so we'll see what materialises.

As regards our financial situation, it will be interesting to see what develops, we have a serious debt there and I would be interested to see does he plan on paying it off or what the deal is. As regards Eastlands, I'm not sure he needs to buy the ground, our lease is pretty minimal and while it would be nice to own it outright, I think its something that can be looked into further down the line.

Now this whole deal has gone through, I'm a little fearful for what Shinawatra has in plan for my beloved Citeh, but shur its not like we were a well run machine before this (not looking at you Kev, honest....) so we'll see how it develops.

Really?  
Why don't you rate him when he is it the only man to win the double in 3 countries? 

Or the most successful England manager we have had in the last 40 years.

Also can you please tell me why he is a greedy fucker.


Thanks

Yes a future employee trying to get the best deal available to him, that is abhorrent.....

His Club career as manager speaks for itself. Also he is the best candidate available. I don't really get the the general dislike of Sven.
