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

Moyes For Manager Petition


The phrase, 'freedom of speech' comes to mind here and I am happy to publish most of the articles we receive at Vital Man City, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with its content.

Conal Fitzpatrick, a Manchester City FC supporter sent us the following.

The Petition

Manchester City Football Club, with the backing of Sheik Mansour have been given a unique, once in a lifetime opportunity to become a force in world football and perhaps create a glorious new era which would become the greatest in our history, leaving a legacy we long suffering fans have yearned for to our children and for generations to come. However, the financial superpower status bestowed upon us is just part of the equation we must solve. Having a manager capable of delivering us to the promised land is just as crucial.

I like Mancini, but his track record is not convincing. I suppose the ideal choice would be Arsene Wenger - but 15 years younger. Imagine Wenger bringing youngsters through over the years as he has done at Arsenal, playing beautiful football, but armed with almost limitless financial power to bring the true world class players in to put the icing on the cake.

Wenger is perhaps too long in the tooth now, but how about another manager, British, a man who cut his teeth at Preston, doing a tremendous job before being poached by Everton where, on a shoestring budget he has consistently turned out teams which fight for the cause and can play very attractive football despite rumours to the contrary.

He has consistently been able to spot uncut diamonds and turn them into polished gems.He has had to put up with his very best players being poached, yet still he has guided Everton consistently to a high finishing position, an FA Cup Final and into the Champions League. Imagine Moyes with money to throw at a project!

Mancini may prove to be the man, but I am not confident. I want the powers that be at MCFC to look at Moyes the man and his record over the years - including his loyalty - and then at the end of this season offer him the same opportunity we have been given - the once in a lifetime chance.

Moyes for City! Please sign up here if you agree and I will present this to Garry Cook.

I think Conal was expecting similar comments Black Sheep Radical. There are more throught provoking remarks via the forum thread of the same name.

Yeah, Moyes has a good track record of managing on a shoe-string budget. Look what happened to the last manager we had that had that kind of record. No thanks, Gollum can stay at mount doom, especially after the way he treated us over the Lescott transfer.

"I think Conal was expecting similar comments Black Sheep Radical. " Then I hope I have not disappointed him (or you), Tudor. Because a proposal as spectacularly silly as this deserves comments no more or less 'thought provoking' than mine.

I (Conal) expected the reactions above. However, as a City fan, when Purple Nose finally does one, who is the manager you would LEAST like to take over at Owe Trafford? Mourinho? Hiddink? Running short of options? Think about Moyes again. Think about him taking over at United. If he's as bad as some of the comments suggest then you would no doubt love him to replace Taggart. Are you absolutely sure?
