In & Out Speculation Continues

In & Out Speculation Continues



How cheeky are these clubs who think they can get our players on the cheap on season-long loans with City paying part of their wages? Tottenham, Liverpool, Villa, Fulham, Marseille - if you want these footballers then pay up both to City in terms of transfer fees and the player in terms of wages.

Why on earth would City want to loan Bellers to Spurs? You know what you get with Craig - 100% all the time, no shirking, no cheating and goals. If you want him, Harry, then cough up my son.

Similarly if RSC fancies the Cote D'Azur, St Tropez, Juan-les-Pins and all (not forgetting how close is Monaco), then its cheque book time for Marseille.

We have paid sometimes heavily for these players (not only the 2 mentioned above) and have paid them perhaps too well. It is down to your powers of persuasion to convince them that less money in a lesser club is the way forward. Spurs and Marseille might be able to offer Champions League football this year, however temporarily, but they are not Manchester City. We had to persuade them to buy into the vision, so it's over to you.

If players are not up for the fight to get into the 25-man squad then they are effectively telling the Club they no longer want the wages they command at Eastlands and want to try their luck elsewhere. With that comes the inability of the club they join not being able to pay them what they get paid now. The modest fees being suggested by City take that into account.

The latest comments surround Dzeko or Balotelli? For me Dzeko every time. He is established, scores goals and is a robust footballer in the mould of our one-time hero Uwe Rosler. Balotelli as I've said once before strikes me as a problem waiting to happen. I would like to be proved wrong but his CV doesn't look good to me.

The point here being you persuaded them to buy into your vision with hefty,hefty pay packets and enormous amounts of dosh. Fair enough, but we lesser mortals have to work on limited budgets, so it will take much, much longer to make then take massive wage cuts.

I'd prefer Balotelli to be honest, much more explosive, 20 in 64 isn't a bad CV in my book...

"If players are not up for the fight to get into the 25-man squad then they are effectively telling the Club they no longer want the wages they command at Eastlands" Because at the end of the day, winning trophies are what real footballers want ;) baaa baaa

Its teams paying ridiculously stupid wages that cause so many problems financially in the modern game. Just because your owner has more money than sense and gives those kind of wages out left, right and centre why should ours have to suffer when we are actually one of the few properly run clubs?!

Man City have to sell, or loan players out, full stop. At one point, if there are no offers from other clubs, you will have no choice but to loan out your players to us (Spurs) and I'm sure Richards, Ireland, Richards, would much rather be in a squad rotation club who are in the champions league than who are in the Europa League. What you have to ask yourself is, what kinda starting 11 are Man City gonna have next year compared to Spurs? A Team? Or a load of individuals worth 15m + each ??

Guys the reality is that the only players we need not have in the 25 are Jo - Caceido - Santa Cruz, Etuhu and Logan - all the rest including Balotelli would fit in the 25 - you lot read too many hack journalists with scare stories.
