How disappointing that we have today got to lunch time without City getting a completely new team.

With the season over and the World Cup not started it is a great pastime to see which players are heading to eastlands according to the written press.

Today we have Hart (returning), Boateng, Munoz, Luiz, Arteta, Gerrard, Milner, Silva, Rossi, Ibrahimovic.

So Zabaleta or Ricards or Onuoha are looking safe today folks!!

I'm sure that other Vital sites are seeing their Clubs linked with various footballers and it must be discouraging for young players to see seasoned internationals being linked with their Club who would clearly take preference over them and also players who have pledged their futures to Clubs looking as though they are ready for the revolving door.

As I have said on several occasions, City weren't far off it last season and of the above the Arteta, Gerrard, Milner thread looks good but for me not Gerrard at the expense of Michael Johnson.

I have never seen what Managers see in Ibrahimovic. For me he is just another so-called striker in the mould of Adebayor - can do it on his day but how often do those days come along?

After Joe Hart's exceptional season with Birmingham I for one would love to see him back for City, even at the expense of Shay Given, who will probably miss the start of the season anyway.

Mancini looks as though he is getting his teeth into things and trying to obtain some established start before their stock rises in the World Cup. Transfer windows are a very exciting time to be around Manchester City right now. I'm sure Rebecca's fax machine and e-mails are rattling along at an all-time high!!

We love you City....

Wholeheartedly agree. One thing is for sure if we could bring in a striker to match Tevez's endeavour, we'd be devastatingly good up front for starters!

have you not spent enough money on strikers yet? All man citeh fans have boners imagining what players are going to be brought in. Do you reach your climax or lose erections when you find that you've gone and bought b team internationals?

LLB - Boners? That's a different game altogether, is it not? Who are the "b team internationals"?

Sorry to hear about your erectile disfunction probles there lifelongblue, but surely a football forum is not the place to air them?

hehe, no erectile disfunction here lads. Except for the feeling of being on viagra ever since we won the double. but of course you can't really appreciate that feeling in 'recent' times can you? I think the players I was talking about would be lescott, bridge, sylvinho, a. johnson. then you have the over-paid "superstars" like Adebayor, Santa Cruz, Toure. So the £100million spent on those transfers plus the wages they're getting for doing, let's face it, sweet f.a. and you must be looking down at the mess in your hands thinking "so soon?"

Mess? We've just enjoyed our best season in PL, going from tenth to fifth, finishing less than twenty points behind yourselves, whereas last season we finished around 40 points off top. The players you mention, Sylvinho out of contract, Lescott would be on the plane to SA if not for injury, Bridge would be on plane if not for Terry, A Johnson a steal at 7 mil. Adebayor scored one in two, Toure and Crocky I'll give you that one, but that's hardly a mess, is it?

Its an expensive mess Bluedub. Its thanks to you that people can't claim we bought the title in 2004/05 anymore, you've shown (with real determination and pride) that no matter how much money you throw at players, they won't perform together well enough to win. but you're right; 19 points off the champions, one cup final and europa league for next season... sounds like a bargain.

Chelsea started their spending in a much stronger position than City so it was easier for them to win trophies early on in their investment, was it not? I'd list all the expensive flops, but I have work to do and that would take a long time, so I'll leave that one. Remember also that Chelsea owe their parent company 700 million, whereas City have total debt of 37 million.

ah, of course. the small fact that we Chelsea do not owe anyone that kind of money is always over-looked especially by tabloids and naff websites. 'Contrary to media reports today, other than a small residual balance Chelsea Football Club and our parent company Chelsea FC plc are debt free and do not owe any money to our shareholder (Fordstam Ltd). Neither do we owe any money to Roman Abramovich.'
