The Manchester City 25

The Manchester City 25



Manchester City have officially released the eagerly anticipated 25-man squad list.

There were a few suprises in the list, with many expecting the likes of Shaleum Logan, Jo and Roque Santa Cruz to follow the likes of Robinho and Bellamy out of the club on loan or in permanent deals.

City had no problems meeting the minimum number of 8 home-grown players, with 12 players currenly registered in the 25.

Teenage sensation Mario Balotelli headlines the U21 group, none of whom are required to be named in the 25-man squad, but under the new Premier League rules, all are eligible to play.



Keepers: Shay Given*, Joe Hart*, Stuart Taylor*.

Defenders: Jerome Boateng, Wayne Bridge*, Aleksander Kolarov, Vincent Kompany, Joleon Lescott*, Shaleum Logan*, Micah Richards*, Kolo Toure, Pablo Zabaleta.

Midfielders: Gareth Barry*, Nigel de Jong, Adam Johnson*, Michael Johnson*, James Milner*, David Silva, Yaya Toure, Patrick Vieira, Shaun Wright-Phillips*.

Forwards: Emmanuel Adebayor, Jo, Roque Santa Cruz, Carlos Tevez.

* Denotes 'Home Grown' players = 12



U21: Mario Balotelli, Dedryck Boyata, Greg Cunningham, Abdi Ibrahim and Alex Tchuimeni-Nimely.

With such youth in the side, this squad is going to grow stronger and stronger every season.

At least we've still got some genuine "home growns" coming through. The four lads in the U/21 are all tidy players

Agreed eighthsin and JB, but I'm really pleased that Roque Santa Cruz stayed. If he regains full fitness he'll be one of the best in front of goal. A different type of player, a good guy and great for the changing room and the vibe. I know that most people wanted him out, but if his fitness holds he could yet become a leading member.

You make a saliant point roy. The service was abysmal from the wings last season and he might yet come good. Fingers and everything crossed!

Roque is a true centre forward, his hold up play is immense - far better than Ade or Jo. He is certainly a decent weapon to have at our disposal IF he can stay fit. Fingers crossed.

How is this possible? The press said we had a billion players on our books and there was going to be a firesale at City, how did players like Logan and Jo survive?
