City need Dyno-Rod treatment

The results of our web-poll show overwhelmingly that Blues expect an ever bigger clear-out of players in this summer's transfer window.

Your views on last week's cull of players were overwhelmingly in favour of more of the same. We asked:

How do you rate Psycho's clear out so far?

OK for now, but more needed: 85%

He's got rid of the wrong players: 7%

Not Sure: 7%

Great - that should do it: 1%

Once again, I'm sure we're not telling Psycho anything he doesn't already know, but lack of funds and players on long term contracts don't make it easy for him to manoeuvre.

I think most fans were expecting / hoping the likes of Sibierski, Mills, Thatcher and Reyna would be on their way, but their respective contractual situation doesn't make it easy to offload them unless other clubs comes in with offers.

The 10 players shown the door last week were:

Kiki Musampa, Albert Riera, David Sommeil,Geert de Vlieger, Mikkel Bischoff, Tuomas Haapala, Ian Bennett, Karl Bermingham, Paul Collins and Michael Ward - we wish them well and hope they find other clubs soon.

I think there'll be no excuses from Psycho if it all goes tits up; it'll be his sqaud and his management team. Next season will be a real test, but the most important thing for Pearce is to assemble a squad of players who really want to be at Eastlands. We need a team, rather than a ragged collection of individuals

I'd love SWP to come home, but not in exchange for Richards, Sturridge plus cash - that's not good business. I think Anfield or Emirates statium is more likely destination.

City underachieved last season and should be a top 10 club at the least. Psycho needs to sort out some better teamwork.

It'll be a typical season; big highs, deep lows and ultimately a sense of underachievement and disappointment... but it wouldn't be City if it were anything else ;-)
