Mancio: 'We Must Change Our History'

Mancio: 'We Must Change Our History'



In a frank and open interview with The Sunday Times, City boss Roberto Mancini, currently in Italy caring for his sick father, has declared his 'good feeling' for the coming season

The suave City supremo is clearly in no mood to entertain the by now repeated droaning mantra from numerous quarters that City are either 'ruining football' or 'buying success" which has lessened somewhat this summer:'

'...Manchester City spend a lot of money, but last year, two years ago, three years ago, all the teams - Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea, Liverpool - spent a lot of money, no? Because if you want a good team you must buy good players....all the teams that play in the Premier League spend a lot of money on players. This is normal...we want to invest in Manchester City because we want to try to improve our team.'

Meanwhile, the message of ambition is clear to Planet Blue from our City scarfed leader going into the final two weeks before the big kick off at White Hart Lane:

'I think that I'm a good manager. I know football very well and think that I can win with Manchester City...I think we will win something for sure. I don't know if it will be the Premier, the Europa League or the FA Cup.'

Hinting at further signings he concluded:

'I want to finish in the transfer market before I can say if we can win the title or not. But I have a good feeling this year. This year is important. This year we must change our history.'

Not sure what he's talking about though. The most we've spent on players in a single transfer window was 61 mil and that was on SEVEN players! We've never bought two players who cost more than 20 mil in ONE transfer window. So no Mancini we have never spent like you are doing

Every single success under Taggart was fuelled by money. FACT. Repeatedly unrivalled in the transfer market for decades, relentlessly breaking transfer records. This utter drivel that "we're exempt from criticism because we didn't spend our multi millions inside two years" is laughable.

JB - Why is it laughable? When we did spend big, it was on ONE player for that entire year. Is it the same as what you or what Chelsea did? I'm not jealous of your spending but it should in no way be compared to what you're doing atm! We always mixed youth with our team. We never bought an entire team to get us success!

Ireland Onuoha Richards Ibrahim Cunningham Boyata M Johnson etc etc all part of the MCFC Academy player belt and all used by the current manager. The point I am making is that united have been untouchable for decades financially and suddenly are surpassed. Had the Glazers the money Sheikh Mancity has Taggart would be spending. His excuses that the quality isn't out there as reasons for the sudden frugality are pretty lame.

Would you say a fee of 32.5 mil for Robinho is justifiable? How about 19 or so mil for Jo? Perhaps 22 mil for Lescott is a reasonable and value-for-money transfer? Vila's 30 mil asking price for Milner is value for money as well. Oh and don't list players that rarely feauture in City's first team plans you're just embarrasing yourself naming once in a blue moon players. Also on another point we haven't suddenly been outmuscled by financial muscle Chelsea have been richer than us for years.
