Mancio Offloads To Hacks Over Transfers

Mancio Offloads To Hacks Over Transfers

Trouble at t'mill and then some. Roberto Mancini has revealed his absolute frustration over The Blues' lack of transfer activity at his Community Shield presser...

'After four months, I don't know what to say. You need to ask Brian Marwood. Talk with Marwood, please...I'm not the Sporting Director and cannot talk about the players.' said the City boss as he responded to questions over City's lack of any signings so far this summer.

In the scheme of things with morale sky high across Planet Blue, not a smart move with the anti-City brigade having had very little to foam about this summer. The vast majority of City fans would prefer to see the registering of disappointment over such issues kept in house, but it's out there now and has to be dealt with.

Mancio clearly revealed his frustration that the City hierarchy has yet to capture any agreed targets 'in order to improve' but more tellingly admitted unhappiness at how the club is structured over transfer market policy: 'I am not happy - but I do not know what to say.'

One senses that this has been coming with City's ambitious young manager eager to build upon the stunning platform he has constructed at City with some key squad additions, but the need to balance The Champions books is also uppermost with UEFA President Michel Platini continuing to make boggly eyes at City as opposed to anywhere else.

The City boss went on to confirm that The Blues had received numerous offers from some of Europe's biggest clubs to sign Mario Balotelli but each one had been rejected.

No offense but Mancini is being a tad bit selfish. Has he forgotten that too many cooks spoil the broth?? *poor rich Manager*

Said all along, Marwood out of his depth! @Mq Every team has a 25 man squad, Mancini only wants a couple of additions like a midfielder to succeed/challenge Barry and replace De Jong.

I believe Mancini wants two or three more @Mq to replace players that were signed under Hughes tenure that he wants rid of.

You'd think our owners would be able to recognise that their football administrator is out of his depth wouldn't you Stu?

Yes Bluedub but it seems his capabilities have truly been put to the test this summer without an open check book and he has failed spectacularly to offload players or bring in what Mancini wants.

Couldn't agree more Stu, out of his depth. I've been saying it for a while too. Something's gotta give - and it won't be Mancini. Marwood and Deadwood OUT!

We failed to shift the deadwood last summer too, why did the owners not hold Marwood accountable for this then?

Bridge to Sunderland, Adebayor to Spurs, RSC to Real Betis, Nedum to QPR, Boyata to Bolton, SWP to QPR, Bellamy to Liverpool. Majority were loan deals but only because of wage issues. Who did we fail to shift?

John Williams was brought in to shift the deadwood last summer and failed (besides loans). Williams' contract with the club wasn't renewed, it's all in Marwood's hands now.
