Phil Collins & City Fans Agree - In The Air


Legendary Genesis singer and drummer, Phil Collins agrees with Manchester City fans when he sings - In The Air Tonight.

Monday 23 February 2009, Manchester City has played 26 Premier League games, and sits pretty on 32 points - league position, 10th.

Games to play - 12. Points up for grabs = 36.

Top four spot and Champions League place in next year's competition, oh yes.

City manager Mark Hughes is slowly but surely building his team and perhaps we Blues should believe, In The Air Tonight.

What do you think?

Nothing much happens in the first half, then the drums come in and make some noise before heralding an increase in workrate during the second half. Sound (over) familiar?

I feel sadness, fear and even heart burn when i think of city under hughes. So much is wrong at eastlands. I see no signs to optimistic despite yesterdays draw.

I'd rather see a Meerkat playing the drums..... @enzo - Hughes hasn't even had one season. You can't judge a manager in this short a space of time. He needs two seasons minimum before you can judge him.

I agree BG. Hughes needs another window and another season, the signs are there and if we could take that attitude we had yesterday into games when we play the lower end of the premier, we will win alot more than we lose and Robinho will start to smile again.

I expect the gorilla is called Guy. They always are.

Hughes needs a another batch of fastasy dust that he sprays around eastlands, deluding many fans. Its a certainty he will be sacked in the summer and it would be for the best interests of the club. 1) he simply isnt/wasnt good enough for city 2) inability to work with the squad he inherited 3) stupid team selections, subsitutions and tactics 4) no improvement from svens team 5) cant handle the dressing room 4) lame excuses after every defeat 6) cried for transfer kitty since septmeber to solve team performances, when he already spent 70million in the summer?!?! 7) he has had a WHOLE preseaon to implement tactics, formations and fitness, unlike sven who only had three weeks of pre-season prepare and buy players 8) who thinks ADUG wont consider a proper manager (mourinho, moyes, lippi, rykard) in the summer with their trillions?!? 9) Hughes wont city anywhere hear top4 next season or attract top players to eastlands 10) look at the league table and our numerous crap performances and tell me he is doing a good job, after spending 130 million???? if his name was mark hughesio or mark hughinho he would have been sacked in december. Funny how a point at anfield seems like a win to most.

Does the gorilla have any experience of top flight management?

to quote phil about thirty thousand times during that song "oh lord..." speaking of songs? when was the last time we sang a new song aside from the SVG song last season? surely ireland/robinho should get one... liverpool had one for torres in his 2nd game, and i think most of the league know that song now
