Your hopes are really top four? Really, Really? With all the money you have spent your aim is the top four? It should most definitely be the league this season, you cant ignore the amount of money you have spent and you should really be challenging and winning the league.

shut up you nob. So anything less than the league is a failure? What an idiot. We've never been in the Champions League before. Its a very simple man that thinks money equals success. There is a hell of a lot more to it than that and considering our starting point I think things are moving along quite nicely. Apart from captain fantastico and his amazing exploits. He's only got himself to blame for sleeping with the 19 year old and his wife subsequently *****ing off back to Argentina.

P.Avfc - I appreciate you have changed your Vital name once or twice but how about changing it again. I know, you could call yourself 'Thrush'. You irritating **nt. (lol).
Tudor
Well, P.Avfc. You'll recall our discussions early season over Ireland's embarrassing statements and your suggestion that we should wait until after 10 games to see how right or wrong the lightweight midfielder was. Thoughts?
Johnny Baguette
Oh so here come the city trolls who cant take a comment without hurling abuse at people HAHA! And tudor i have changed it once, due to being forced too by the moderator! Honk Honk! There wasn't anything harsh about my comment, it's actually praising city saying you should be aiming for the league with the ***** load of money you have threw around and not fourth. And baguette i dont see milner playing the football he did at villa, by my eyes both signings were flops, i didnt't expect villa to be above city because we are building our team from youth and not the cash HONK!
P.Avfc
Are you a clown going round in circles in one of those comedy cars mate? Honk?
Johnny Baguette
Our hopes are CL qualifcation P.Avfc, I would say that's fairly reasonable, given the massive transition taking place at the club in terms of playing personnel and considering our manager hasn't even got a full season under his belt. It's not as simple as throwing money at it and the rest will take care of itself, even the most retarded of football fans would appreciate that I'd imagine. Real Madrid are a case in point. As for the Milner Ireland argument, there is no way Milner has been a flop, he hasn't reached the levels he was playing at last season but has always and will always put in a good shift, something which cannot be accredited to Ireland. In fact Milner has been improving steadily recently and even took the MOTM award in our last Europa League game. A flop? I don't think so. Ireland on the other hand has done what? apart from taking a public tongue lashing by his manager?
Bluedub
If we talk about the Top 4 we get branded unambitious. If we talk about the title we get branded arrogant. I prefer Mancini's method of playing expectations down when you know full well that he will be doing everything in his power to finish above 4th.
fifthcolumnblue
But you all talk down to me for saying you should be aiming for the title? Just shows you are a bunch of nasty arrogant pigs. Milner seems like he cant get a game just like ireland, and ireland has had a few good appearances but his heart aint at villa, but frankly we will flog him for cash so job done, we wont lost no sleep barry bannan is twice the player.
P.Avfc
Milner has started in the majority of our games this season, and featured in almost all of them. When he has missed out he has been replaced with quality, whereas Ireland is losing his place to kids with little or no PL experience, hardly comparable really.
Bluedub
TF7 - what part of City don't renegotiate contracts during the course of the season do you not understand? Them sources you're quoting are obviously using info then to them by Tevez' agent to try to stir the *****.
Bluedub
P. don't be silly, anyone is replaceable.
Bluedub
Your on the wrong article bludbub i think mate.
P.Avfc
But yeah my original point anyway was saying you should be aiming to win the league and you have a chance. And ireland is losing his place to kids, we have probably the best youth going in the league apart from arsenal at the moment i would say. Ireland was just a bonus in the deal anyway he is still a handy player just aint working for him.
P.Avfc
He lost his place to Peres the other week, lol!
Johnny Baguette
Who can blame a Villa fan for hating us? We took their two best players, gave them two liabilities, and turned them from top 4 contenders to relegation battlers.
StuMCFC
I don't think we should extract the miguelito out of anyone. Other people have greater aspirations for City than we have ourselves because we still take each minute of each match as it comes and don't generally issue predictions that are unattainable. Villa have their own problems. They are going backwards. I'm not 100% with the performances of Barry nor Milner, but they deliver some goods. Ireland was deliverint the same as SWP, Adebayor and RSC.....Zilch
