City's First Half Evaluation!
Google language translator
Mark Hughes came in with plans and set out his foundations for City, however when Abu Dhabi took over from Thaksin Shinawatra in the summer, the future looked brighter than the mobile network Orange. On that same day, excitement turned to true shock when it was revealed Robinho was joining the club.
A series of signings including the return of City's prodigal son, Shaun Wright-Phillips brought huge hope that City could finally take that next step that Mr Wardle desperately wanted when he let Thaksin have his club. However a series of unpredictable City performances had left them fighting around relegation until City finally got some sort of consistency in recent matches. City's away performances are still leaving fans blue, but with the January signings set to boost their presence away from home, surely it is only a matter of time before the performance returns away from Eastlands.
Tudor believed that City's UEFA cup campaign was where City where producing their "great stuff" but believed that both English cups City were involved in produced pretty terrible performances and the premiership campaign still had room for improvement. cityman51 also agreed with Tudor and believed that there is "still time for improvement away from home as the UEFA Cup qualification for next year IS still in our grasp"
Elsewhere Johnny Baguette couldn't get his head round why City have failed to beat physical sides when he said: "I have been stunned at how we have failed to cope with the league's technically less gifted but more physical sides. Never expected that from a Hughes side".Buzz Lightyear also thought that the midfield was to lightweight, but believed that once the new signings settled, the peformance would improve.
However like Johnny many City fans still believed that the only way is up. bluemooner_mcfc believes that there can be no more excuses for Hughes as he managed to field over 8 of his own signings in a recent team line-up. Doody is happy with City's current position and is very excited about the future. He said the next few months "will I am sure bring both the wow factor and some frustration but we are going to start climbing the table for sure".
Fifthcolumnblue has also raised questions about City#'s form but believes that now the following points have been either been addressed or helped the club.
1) We've got the holes in the squad (mostly)filled
2) We've got rid of the two alleged worst troublemakers
3) We've all been drawn together by the negative press
4) We've still got the UEFA cup to look forward to.
Thaibluefan also summed their opinion in one word. "One word for the first half of the season - Frustration. The second half - Expectation?"
mcfcthriller, alphieblues and bluemooner_mcfc all believe that its not over until the fat lady sings although the identity of the lady seems to be vague as both Sam Allardyce and Ronaldo have all been seen singing, although the man dressed as a woman may not have been Ronaldo but may have been an acquaintance of the Brazilian.
City's first half of the season was summed up exactly by mcfctop4, who described the first half performance as:
Supporting City is like Supporting Tiger Woods with a welding mask on..
More talent than humanly conceivable, but still unable to see where he is meant to be going...
