City Players Booted Out In January - You're Choice

City Players Booted Out In January - You're Choice

Google language translator

Manchester City fans have been busy on the Vital City Chat forum deciding which player they would like given the boot come the January transfer window.

Do you have an opinion? If the answer is yes, you can register here and begin posting straight away.

Sinbad says...

I can see eleven going and a higher number coming in. The squad is essentially too small. The changes can't all be done in January, but I still think there will be some key changes then.

Some of the INs might look a bit fantasy football. But I've enjoyed researching them. The idea was to have small groups of players from the major footballing countries. Hence a clutch of German players, for instance. Including a top young goalkeeper to give Joe Hart at least serious competition.

If I were Hughsey...

Vassell (free)
Caicedo (loan)
Berti (free)
Mills (free)
Etuhu (loan)
Logan (loan)

René Adler
Christoph Metzelder
Klas Jan Huntelaar
Giorgio Chiellini
Jeremy Toulalan
Taye Taiwo
Marcell Jansen

Meanwhile Johnny Baguette had his own favourites...

I reckon there could be a clear out...certainly next summer, failing serious revolving door activity in January should we still be contenders in Europe.

Dunne (potential shock offski there)
Garrido and Ball (writings on the wall)
Schmeichel (been gobbing off too much and will get the boot)
Etuhu, Logan (unless they can get in some top performances through the coming fixture intensity)
Benjani, Vassell (days numbered unless they can re-establish themselves)
Castillo, Caicedo (will be palmed off on loan)
Danny Mills (I will personally drive him wherever he wants to go).

An excellently time article heading into this important phase of games. The players will stand or fall by their performances. The message is clear. Be a part of it or it's a taxi.

If i was a player and I saw my name on the exit list i might get a little nervous lol. But seriously, either some of them lift their game or start packing, cos with new players expected in Jan, there isnt any place for non-performers.

I agree about 'headless chicken' Gelson, I don't rate him at all. Scmeichel needs to go. I don't think Evans is Premiership quality. Ball can't even get a game now, so he'll be off when we sign Bridge in January.

Bridge isn't good enough. we ned the best left back in the world to free Petrov and shore us up. There is only one...

Seriously -- cast offs from Chelski will not take us where we want to go. SWP is a fantastic player who wasn't given a chance by Mourinho, and is an exception. Exceptional in every way, especially as an attacking right winger the best in the world! But the likes of Huth (at Boro, average), Bridge (less than average) will not take us where we want to go. We need the best Left Back in the world. Why? Because we need to free Petrov, Robinho and Jo down the left to wreak mayhem. the best left back in the world, I believe, is Marcell Jansen. he would cost a lot of well spent money. If there is a better Left Back, please tell...

Ghost, The problem is if Evans go to another club he will become agood player as like as Govani, I Miller & Sameras!!!
