Forget United The City Is Buzzing

Forget United The City Is Buzzing

Manchester City executive chairman Garry Cook has warned success will not come overnight, nevertheless that missing buzz has returned to the Blue side of the City.

Boss Mark Hughes will meet with new owner Sheikh Mansour and his representatives in Abu Dhabi in a couple of weeks time to discuss January transfer targets. If the figure being banded around is anywhere close to the correct figure, Sparky could end up with around £100million in his player war chest.

Garry Cook told the Manchester Evening News...

'The future on the field is bright. Mark talks about moving this club forward. I can't think of anybody better to take us there.'

'He knows what the job involves. If we give Mark the resources, he will deliver for us but he is working with a squad he largely inherited.'

'We got the manager we wanted, along with the right coaching staff. And we knew we had great admin staff.'

'But we knew we needed resources on the field as well. And that was all about bringing in the right partner. We have a benefactor who understands the needs of all those parties.'

'If you bring all these elements together - and it has happened as much by luck as by design - it creates a huge buzz.'

'And there's a buzz here now that we haven't seen for years.'


City has to wait until Monday 20 October for their next Premier League fixture, with struggling and in turmoil Newcastle United being their opponents.

Hughesy is getting a massive level of backing from the board. A much higher commitment is being made to him than to almost any manager Manchester City has had. Of course he has inherited a squad which he has not built. But isn't that always the case? The next few months will show how really good Hughes is. He must keep us in the UEFA Cup for one, and keep us intouch with the Premiership leaders. A top 6 finish will be the least the new club will expect.

A top 6 finish is still realistic, but we have to put an end to the hard-luck stories of Wigan and Liverpool and start notching up some points. We have a run of five domestic games now which should be capable of winning. Still very optimistic - the future is definately BLUE!

Not nit picking Sindbad, but Hughesy has more money to spend, but Peter Swales did an awful lot of backing to his managers, they just didn't buy wisely.I think that is the key to success,

Swales kept the club going through thick and thin, Buzz. he loved City. But how many managers did he have? We need to stick by Hughes -- and the owners are saying they will stick by him. You know what I mean: Swales was in different times... I don't think it's fair on either owner to do a comparison. Now it's the global rather than the individual. In many ways it is frightening. But City will soon be a global brand. Really.

i agree sindbad swales loved city backed his managers in every way he could, and invariably died for the club he loved he just hung on too long, wishing he could be the one who was there when his boast of 'becoming bigger than utd' came to fruition, but too compare him to now is daft, differant era altogether. i am by no means a swales supporter just to give credit where its due, as in franks case too would we be in the posititon we are now without his help???
