Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is well aware of the important decision he'll have to make when he submits his 25-man Premier League squad.
The list has to be submitted to the Premier League HQ once the summer window transfer closes on 31 August and unless there are exceptional circumstances the named squad cannot be altered or changed until January 2012.
Players omitted from Mancini's list are of course eligible to play in other competitions such as the Champions League, FA Cup and the League Cup but on this occasion I want to focus solely on the domestic league.
The following list of players are currently contracted to Manchester City Football Club. I also appreciate between the date this article was published and the end of the transfer window one or two players will be sold or loaned out but based on the information I have at my disposal, this is my list.
Nigel de Jong
Those who I think will miss the cut are...
Dedryck Boyata, Wayne Bridge, Greg Cunningham, Nedum Onuoha, Abdisalam Ibrahim, Abdul Razak, Emmanuel Adebayor, Craig Bellamy, Roque Santa Cruz and Alex Nimely.
Rumours suggest Mancini wants to recruit at least another two players before the transfer window closes, one of which is a winger. If that is the case there is going to be a few players named on my list who are going to be well miffed.
