So Hughes has finally been sacked after a run of two wins in eleven games, but just who is the man replacing him?

Well, it's a fine domestic track record gafferwise, that's for sure.

City say he has a proven record, but being the manager of iter Milan s like being the manager of Celtic or rangers, virtually guarantees you at least one trophy a year.Not filling me with confidence n this appointemnet and don't think we are any better off than when mark hughes was the manager.

I'm certainly sideing more with that viewpoint Buzz. I've been priviledged enough to see how Carrington is set up at close quarters and I've often wondered what it's like at a club where a manager walks in and lifts a place when a team is in a relegation dogfight. How a squad with plenty of previous manager loyalists in a sound competitive position reacts in mid season is another matter entirely.

he will get my support, whish i hope the fans who screamed for Sparky to go, will now get behind Mancini, as they did'nt with Sparky and maybe just maybe we will win some thing... who knows with a settled team and the fans behind him it may be possible but there are those who don't want us to succeed and they are supposed to support city....

I'm interested to see the new dynamics of the team and who are the new favourites. I wonder how many Ex-academy players will be in the team? Ireland, Richards and Onouha have to raise their game yet again. I wonder how Robinho and the loanees will be treated aswell.

Good manager but don't read too much into his record with Inter. He won one league title in the courts, another when there was no competition and a third when he brought everyone else's best players.

His tactics will be the first interesting point I wonder who he sees as dead wood at the club

Any new manager would immediately recognize that the back four are fragile and need to be protected, which would suggest a greater role for de Jong or Kompany, and will come at the cost of one of your attacking midfielders. Ireland or Wright-Phillips, I would guess.

I think this appointment will all end in tears.....Hughes was/ is a good gaffer. If he gets another Prem post he might come back and bite you in the bum . At least he should be well compensated for his troubles.
