So you are the ever immaculately turned out Roberto M arriving at Carrington with only Brian Kidd as support. You've watched The Blues, what changes if any would you make...?
Nevermind the coffee probably being rubbish, you've got a job on.
First up, the stories that Shay Given led a deputation of Hughes loyalists to confront City CEO Garry Cook in the immediate aftermath of Sparky's sacking. How do you intend to deal with that?
Rumours are swirling around SportCity that Capitaine Kolo Toure, particularly hapless against Sunderland wants out of the north.
Many Blues have highlighted a lack of leadership across the park. That was entirely evident amid the collective chaos of Keystone Cops defending that threatened to result in defeat against The Mackems.
Is it time to name a new skipper?
Meanwhile, anybody with half a footballing brain would identify that City need an astute defensive coach. Would you look to bring one in? Got someone in mind?
Then there are the tactics. Would you adopt a more cautious approach or stick with the 'we'll score one more than you' mayhem until you can bring in reinforcements?
Maybe you feel that the whole squad needs major midwinter surgery. Would you make radical personnel changes?
Then again, maybe we should adopt a new mantra at MCFC....'if it ain't completely broke, er, don't fix it...too much...'
Give us a shout both here and in the buzzing VMC Forums with your Italian slip on views....
