Lamborghini Out Of Storage, Robinho's Back In Town

Manchester City appear to be giving Robinho another chance to shine in the Premier League.

In an effort to make the 26-year-old feel at home the club has reportedly brought his Lamborghini car out of storage, extended the lease on his house in Cheshire and arranged private day care for his child.

25-Man Squad

The £32.5million record signing has already been included in Roberto Mancini's Europa League squad and now it's thought the City boss is going to name the Brazilian in his Premier League 25-man team.

The only thing missing is a red carpet at Carrington, a heated toilet seat and a truck load of women to service his every need.

Welcome back Robbie!

In a ideal world robinho would be a model professional and display the world class skills he has for city. But we dont live in a perfect world do we. If only... Atleast jo is fighting hard now and doing well. Maybe he can encourage robbie to do the same.

On the surface good news and if he starts in the drssing room Viera can down him. Its obviously why Mancini kept Viera - the enforcer - and got rid of Bellemy the rebel.

Spud 1 I like many of us simply can't answer your questions. I suppose we'll be kept in the dark and treated like mushrooms until someone from the club comes out and tells us. In the meantime I'm off to put a pair of underpants over my head, stuff to pencils up my nose and walk around saying, WIBBLE.

It will inevitably take a few weeks to entangle - given the World Cup, friendly internationals etc but Mancini has seen it all before.

Don't you suspect it might be bad man mangement by Mancini.It cant be that half the original team have suddenly become this way.

Spud1 - they weren't his signings and as you saw in your 1-0 win they weren't good enough when it counted. We are aiming for the top and needed to make changes.

Despite all our signings, we're still disturbingly low on creative maestros. If Silva breaks his leg, what do we do, especially with Superman on the way out? That is where Robinho could be useful, roaming freely behind the strikers. Robinho was the first hero of our new era and while he has shown typical mercenary traits, giving him another chance may be a great thing for all of us. At least see how he goes until January then sell him then if things are still poor.

I have to say I have never been a big fan of Robinho ....I think he is a lazy self indulgent ..(but talented) player. However if Mancini thinks he is worth another try lets hope he takes it and changes his attitude.

Robin Ho Ho as Phoenix? Mmm.. He might understand that he has to knuckle down, and in that case we'll find out if he's got what it takes, but as we've noted before, it may be more than even Hauptsturmführer Vierra can lock down. Vierra speaks Italian, English, French, various shades of African and a couple of Father Figure tongues. Mancini delegates or uses the axe. He has to because of his English. He was outnumbered by Craig, Superman and Ned, but he's cut the odds on the creative branch of the native language running amok in the changing room. From the outside, it looks about as smiley as Cosa Nostra, and I s'pose it gives him a chance of hanging onto a maverick talent, but we'll see what happens when January comes flying through the Cheshire Gap and the Lamborghini's not safe on the road. If he can be kept, he'll provide one or two moments of bliss, but what then? There's more.. but not here. I wish him well, but unless he's a changed man, it'll still be Robinwho?

I agree Roy, even if he stays who is to say he wont get cold feet as soon as the season starts and want to go again? Its a huge risk, but at the same time, he is already a City player so its not like we are gambling money on him, but we are gambling responsibility.

At best Robbing Ho will only be one wasted berth in the 25. I'm not best pleased, as disloyalty generally brings out the worst in me (not that I'd advocate having him hung ,drawn and quartered in Albert square or anything), but if there was even a glimmer of hope that our little primadonna had grown up and realised that this was his best chance of achieving something outside of the Brazil squad, I guess I could get used to the idea of seeing him treading the boards again. Just have reservations as to whether he'll ever "Play the Dane" or be reduced to the role of an extra.

At the moment he's an extra. I can see him now in my mind's eye, not chasing back.. and standing there.. desolate.. like. Have you got the right metaphor though 5thcol? I'm sure we'd all like him to become Harry in Henry 1V Part 2, where he's got rid of Falstaff, Pistol and Craig. We could dress him up at the gates of Harfleur, and teach him not only the speech... 'Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our Brazilian dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
as modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
as fearfully as doth a galled rock
o'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
to his full height. On, on, you noblest English.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
and sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
that those whom you call'd fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
and teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
the mettle of your pasture; let us swear
that you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
for there is none of you so mean and base,
that hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry City, Eastlands and by George' ...but the context. We'd be off to a flier... Sorry, just got back to it. This was a midnight prank. Which might get mangled by the Vital format. Later...
