Luckily our outstandimng owners are not that silly. We are blessed just think we could have the Glazers, Randy, those two idiots at Liverpool or even worse Del Boy and Rodney at West Ham.

I think it is a bit early to be talking about changing our coach FFS. We have played one game.

Destabilizing tactics. This is a rehash of a story from last season where we also apparently wanted Capello.

Id get use to it, when chelsea went rich if a manager did poor he got the chop. I feel if mancini isnt in the race for the title come christmas christmas then he will be gone. If i remember chelsea didnt spend as much as you before they got there first premier league title? So if your not competing up there he should get the sack because it would be embarrasing.

P.avfc-Ranieri got the chop after finishing second and reaching the CL semi final, hardly poor is it? This is City not Chelsea, two different clubs at very different levels when they came into money, so why the assumption that City will be as ruthless?

If Mancio isn't under pressure, then there's something wrong.

Yeah chelsea were a big club when they got took over. And Mark Hughes? Cant see how mancini has done better than him, You can come at me with all stats but everyone knows hughes is a good manager, Mancini still has alot to prove and if performances are like they are against spurs he will soon be off. And of course city are as ruthless if not worse, You have mega rich owners who want success not to keep lingering around 4 - 6 you should be getting that title this year with the money you have spent no questions asked. Your definately not gonna get the title, probably 4th but i think that shouldnt be your aim, so i will say again mancini wont last the season.

The only people who are heaping the pressure on Mancini are our detractors in the media and from other clubs. They are SOOOO eager to see us fail that I can see the flecks of foam glinting around their mouths from the comfort of my sofa. Of Course Mancini will realise that he is expected to bring success, but let's not forget that he is the manager that our owners have chosen for the job (unlike the hapless Hughes), so even if it takes a while for us to find form, I expect Mancini to be given at least the whole season. People like our chum the pretty awful vital fart chewer are just guilty of wishful thinking.

People who believe Mancini is going anywhere fast are kidding themselves. Hughes was not the choice of the current owners yet he was gives £200m+ and 18 months, yet people want to believe that Mancini, who is the owner's choice and who has a track record of winning titles, is up for the chop without even having a full season under his belt, yeah right!

P. I don't need to throw stats at you. It's obvious that Mancini is doing a better job than Hughes by merely watching City play. Mancini tightened us up defensively, gave the team more organisation and maintained the attacking threat. As for your assumptions, let's just wait and see.

And I suppose Villa are a brilliant attacking side that score goals for fun? Well judging by Saturday they are. I do despair.

Villa are a selling club that can't afford to progress, thus they lost an outstanding manager. There is only one way for Villa - down, down - and unfortunately their 'smart' as oppossed to their 'thick' fans know this.

LOL willy, Cant afford to progress yet we played the best we have in a long time saturday and gone a step further every season you do make me laugh. Losing an outstanding manager? I think not, best thing whats happened to aston villa this season you only needed to watch our game saturday to realise that. Where this season for city? 5th? 4th? spending over 100m and still got challenging for title LOL :D

West Ham are dreadful. O'Neill is a class manager - the season hasn't yet started. All the knockers will be ready but thats part of the unique quality of football.

West Ham are dreadfull but with your performance sat i could see them putting up a fight against you tbh. O'Neil is far from a class manager, he cant do tactics, has 1 gameplan, doesnt like playing youth, sticks to 1 team and is awful in handling money/wages. He did well to get us up to this point but really really had to go.

Just wondering how many bad results it will take before the Villa fans are calling for their "new" manager's head and for a big name appointment to replace him. It's a fickle old business, and one swallow doth not a summer make. Hell, even Blackpool can be made to look good by a poor Wigan (no offence Wigan fans), and even Everton had a bad day at the office against a highly prosaic Blackburn side. Don't get carried away by the Wet Spam result fart chewer!
