Vital Boxing - Bellew Wants Lebedev Next


Would be absolute suicide to get rid of Mancini at this point in time. IMO he needs to be given at least until the end of the season before any decision is made.

Guys, you let him spend 400 million of your money.. letting him go would be a precursor to self imploding! Besides, there isn't any other high profile, competent coach available now either. Unless you want Rijkaard or Schuster, that is.

Would be a fatal mistake. But all this talk of pressure on Mancini is coming from the media, not our powers-that-be. I've yet to see one even semi-reputable report that suggest the *owners* are unhappy with Mancini. The media is willing us to fail. No, not just willing, actively working against us in an attempt to see us fail (all the slanderous stories, including the De Jong one that The S*n was forced to apologize for). We're fourth, as close to Arsenal (well, before their game with Everton today) than 5th spot, have Balotelli coming back, and will sign a top forward in January in an attempt to bring up the goalscoring tally, as we do not have many natural goalscorers besides Tevez and Adebayor.

No JT, we let Hughes spend most of that - and we got Roque Santa Cruz, Lescott, SWP, Adebayor and Bridge, none of whom is doing the business for us at the moment (Have hopes Adebayor & Lescott might still, but the others can go). For the most part, Hughes' purchases were money wasted, Mancini's buys have for the most part been much better from what little we've seen of them. Of course we could always start at square one and ship out all of Hughes' buys as well as Mancini's to accomodate the players any new manager might want to bring in!

I can understand points from both side of the argument so im neutral on this debate. I think that he should be given a chance to get the team playing how he wants and to see what players he wants to keep and who can cut it in the prem and challenge for the title. I think that there are several players who hughes brought arnt good enough so i would give him time personally. But on the other hand there is an arugment that he should be getting results with the money he has spent and should be going for the league and NOT top 4 because all that money seems pointless for just a top four finish. But yeah i rambled on about *****e so i think he should be kept in the job.

Though the football is terrible and too defensive to watch, it would be a bad move to replace mancini now. Even if he does achieve the aim of 4th spot, the manner in which we do it MUST be entertaining. The whole world is watching city now, we must attack. If this boring football continues, i wont pay to watch city untill we improve. Im sure when cook meets the owners this week, they wont be happy with press reports of players not being happy and the standard of football being played. Imagine the whole abu dhabi supporting a drab, boring collection of millionaire footballers afraid to go over the half way line. The sheikh will not be happy, he probably embarassed. I expect cook to deliver mancini with criticism on his arrival back to the uk. Italian chairman regualrly offer/demand tactial or player changes to their managers. I remember belusconi telling anchelotti to always play with two striker, in which he happily obliged. Mansour should tell mancini to buck up, play attractive and aim to win the league! We have the players. Now the mancini should show his worth if he wants to stay for next season.

We have had something like 11 managers in no time at all and look where we are. You have to stand by the manager at least until the end of the season. Yjat is umless he completely loses the dressing room and who will know that better than the players. Your main problem is that you have a huge number of fully capable first teamers who copuld all walk into any other team and that will always cause a problem or two.

We are fourth in the league, why would we want to get rid of our manager???? Simple really!

The stuart pearce brand of football returns :( Not good enough. Even when we had a decent spell earlier on in the season we were pretty boring. Mancini shouldnt be sacked. i really hope he gets it right so we can show the blood sucking press how wrong they are. But hes making things hard for himself by insisting on attacking with only 4 or 3players every week. We never push up, full backs dont bomb on, no runners from midfield at all or creavity.... oh wait a minute - when your squad has four defensive midfielders and no creative central midfielders to compliment them (like a xavi, fabregas, gerrard) that says it all.
