MCFC Submit Squad For Timisoara Clash



The Blues have submitted City's Europa League squad to face FC Timisoara to UEFA with debate sparking omissions and inclusions...

It's looking like Eastlands curtains for Craig Bellamy and Stephen Ireland but our returning record signing Da Souza Robinho is in alongside the widely touted as offski Roque Santa Cruz, and there's also a place for our Johnno, or 'Johnno 1' as he's known around town!

Tricky David Silva is also out following a ludicrous international friendly mission to Mexico with the Champions of The World, Spain.

The squad surely hints at being a strong indicator of where Roberto Mancini's thoughts lie right now.

23 of a possible 25 players have been named in advance of the mission to Romania.

UEFA Europa League Playoffs Squad:

Goalies: Given, Hart, Taylor;

Defenders: Richards, Boateng, Zabaleta, Kolo Toure, Lescott, Logan, Bridge, Kolarov;

Midfield: Wright-Phillips, Adam Johnson, Yaya Toure, Michael Johnson, Barry, Vieira, Kompany, de Jong;

Strikers:
Adebayor, Robinho, Santa Cruz, Tevez.

Should The Citizens safely negotiate the Playoffs, then Mancio will be then able to adjust the squad for the season and the competition proper.

Blues, look no further than VMC for the latest SportCity developments.

In other news, Mancio's Squad continues to take shape, with respect to Andy Smith and The Manchester Guardian...

Mancio has a record in Italy of being a tough man manager, bordering on the ruthless. He's reacted to a couple of players public complaints last year about double training sessions with installing a steep fitness hill at Carrington. Now Bellamy speaks to Sky News about himself and out he goes of this squad.

Hmm, only 23 players named? is that to leave space for Milner and Balotelli?
