'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Inward Looking

Our last Vital Manchester City poll question asked...

Roberto Mancini has brought the typical Italian slow slow pass game to City. Does it suit us?

Here is the result, in descending order.

I hate it - 59%
As long as we win, yes - 35%
Not bothered - 5%
I expected it - 1%

Who remembers the phrase, 'Boring Boring Arsenal' during the George Graham era but hey, they ground out result after result. I wonder if Manchester City will follow suit and end up being tarred with the same brush during the Mancini reign?

Our new front page poll question asks...

What will happen to Portsmouth FC?

To vote, use the poll question to the right hand side of this article.

I wonder if we football fans take ourselves too seriously.

If it wins us some trophies then who cares - honestly, the sooner that banner at United disappears the better. As a group of fans, bar newcastle, we are one of the least together bunch I think I've ever come across. Get behind him, he's our bloomin manager!

At the moment we are playing mainly sideways and backwards because that is what our players need to do to get to grips with the new tactics being imposed by our manager. I know it's frustrating for some fans, but we need to remember that the opposition can't score if we've got the ball! As Mancini's tactics sink in and the players become more comfortable with the system (and perhaps once we have more creative talent in midfield?) I'm sure the players will become more adventurous

fifthcolumnblue has it spot on. Also if city dont finish top4, its widely reported mancini will be replaced. So he has to get results 1st, performance after. Its unfair and foolish to expect perfect football, given the short time mancini has had in charge. He hasnt had a full pre season with the squad to implement his tactics. He hasnt cried and moaned pleading to bring in his own players like what mark hughes did. I only think city play poorly when adebayor starts and mancini tinkers the team system. I believe we great football with tevez playing alone, its going to take to mould a solid team with ade playing. In time I am sure we will. I watched city tear blackburn apart with brilliant attacking football.T he team is going through a bad patch were all the players form has dipped. Despite this we remain strong defensively and won the last two home games playing poorly. Not bad.

The results are good but we are playing too slowly and giving the ball away far too often as a result of being closed down effortlessly. A compromise of style would be nice but I trust Mancini that all this will be worth it in the end! Liverpool will be our biggest test.
