You Are The City Chairman - What Do You Do?

You Are The City Chairman - What Do You Do?

Vital Manchester City new signing, bluealltheway posted the following on our City Chat forum.

The problem for the City board is huge. Do you keep your bets on Hughes and let him buy players that would perhaps fit into his style, or do you cut your losses and get a Sven type with international rep and have him buy the players and manage the survival struggle?

If Hughes stays and buys players who do not work and we look to go down then it's all too late for rescue from someone else. Tough decision.

Another very real point is whom will Hughes be able to get in January? Who in their right mind would join an outfit looking at Championship threat?

City have already started back pedalling on the big names saying that they should follow the Manchester United model and buy in the summer - BS!

They realize there is not a snowballs chance in hell they could pull in any names at this stage no matter how much they offer. I say, cut your losses NOW and have a negotiated established international manager on line ready to go for it and bring with him (through his influence) some good signings if possible.

I believe Mark Hughes is a good manager but you can be good and still fail if you have personality clashes with players and a subjective selection of squad.

MH is better equipped to handle the English Premiership solid 'salt of the earth' type player and the odd obscure international but he is obviously hopeless at managing the egos of high profile internationals. That has to be an art in itself.

In my opinion that requires a Sven type manager who speaks languages and knows how to coddle big egos.

Truly, if I were the Manchester City Chairman I would be having seriously sleepless nights right now. A BIG GAMBLE either way!

Before i write my comment, i agree whole heartedly with editorial above. I knew hughes wouldnt work because city isnt wigan, stoke, blackburn, middlesborough etc. We have always been "special" club, all the fans predicted a elano and hughes bust up. Its not to say elano is lazy, its a clash of characters. Wenger, scolari and fergie would have elano running through walls, richards destroying bulidings, benjani hitting a bran door and dunne defending! we need someone with international name and track record. 6th - 7th place finnish possible under new management. Relegation is likely under hughes. 1) sack hughes and all his backroom staff 2) give frank rykard a three year deal with unlimited funds frank name alone and throphie winning cv (as a manager) will entice the top players. unlike the likes bellamy and bullard who are linked with us now.

"special" Club? Yeah yeah, Special in this way- "The only club in the world which wants to win the CL, but finds itself looking at Championship football!!!"
