Poll Result: Ince Sacked - Sparky Next?

Google language translator


On our last poll, Vital Manchester City regular, alphieblues asked fans...

Who will be the first manager to be sacked?

Here is the result, in descending order.

Mark Hughes - 52%
Paul Ince - 44%
Gianfranco Zola - 2%
A.N. Other - 2%
Tony Adams - 0%

With Blackburn Rovers announcing today (16/12/08) that their manager Paul Ince has been sacked, we keep on the same managerial poll question theme, but this time ask...

If West Brom beat City on Sunday, what should happen?

To vote, use the poll question to the right hand side of this article.

Well my vote was for Ince and as the Rovers board have said they could not afford to become detached from the relegation pack. If we lose on Sunday we could be dragged into the same situation which will give our board some serious questions to answer.

whatever happens against WBA......it is the wrong time to sack a manager.....as a new manager wouldnt have time to do anything before the Jan window closed....so we would actually be in a worse situation than we are now......GIVE MH THE TIME TO DO HIS JOB.....!!!

We have to stick with Hughes through the transfer window at least. We need to support him and hope he puts matters to rights on the pitch. The team must pull together and fight for their places. Come on City!

I typed last night about how high the top flight stakes are now for clubs compared to when Taggart was struggling at the rags in 89. Results inextricably linked to future income are everything. Clubs in our lowly position are starting to panic. One of the problems with changing manager on a regular basis is that an incoming manager does not get enough time to assess who he needs to ship out of a struggling squad. The one's who give in all too easily and are not up for the fight can very often slip the net to underachieve again. That's what has happened at Manchester City this season.

hughes should be sacked, for the simple reason - WE CAN AFFORD THE BEST, BUY THE BEST. if we want to reach the heights of premiership glory and champions league. we need mourinho, rykard etc. if mourinho or lippi turned up at carrington, the players would be galvinised, city would look like they mean business worldwide. no longer a joke outfit under mark hughes. hughes had alllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll summer to access the squad, much longer than svens 3 week pre season. but it was his choice to wait for the last minute for bargain buys. 70million was spent in the summer, none of our best players were sold. so why are we fighting relegation, this time last year we were 6th. redknapp has made a instant impact at spurs, kinnear has installed fight into newcastle, sunderland are now winning, it wouldnt be sods law if west brom get a rare win against city. hughes team is a shambles, lack fitness and fight. ince didnt have billionaire onwners and team that boasts robinho, swp, johnson and richards. blackburn sold there best players. yet ince got the sack.

All the top teams have the best managers and I don't think Hughes has had a fair go yet. He has part of that chance in January, to show us what type of player he wants to bring to the club. A run of three or four wins on the trot will stop all this nonsense of the sack and we will be all happy once more. More signing in the summer should make this club stronger and better to cope with injuries and suspensions and then number of games that are played in a season. COME ON CITY CTID
