If still committed to playing for his side, Nicolas Anelka is never more dangerous then when he and his advisors are looking for a new club.

Bolton come to Fortress Eastlands on something of a high after obtaining their third win of the campaign against a woeful Wigan side. Good grief, City really should have put Wigan to the sword.

That said, Bolton have yet to win away all season. Once again, our young squad is going to have to be prepared to slug it out with a team who regardless of their lowly position in the league can hurt you from all angles.

The likes of Anelka, Diouf, Nolan and the ever combative Davies will have to be well shackled. What concerns me post our disappointing results at Wigan and Spurs is whether or not we are too lightweight to sustainedly contain teams that on paper, and on evidence so far this season, we should be beating.

I still maintain that once our team 'clicks' again, then we will see wins gained with more comfort, but I suggest there is still a need to concentrate better, wise up and toughen up. Of course there is nothing you can do about refereeing decisions such as the one that allowed Chimbonda's hand goal at desperate Spurs last week, but this season's destiny is very much in our own hands.

We're still in the top six, we can give Spurs some payback for that goal in the League Cup and four of our next five games are on home soil. What an opportunity that we could only have dreamed of last May!

Time to freshen things up Svennis. Bianchi must now be given a sustained run in the side. I suggest that Garrido needs time out and Ball should also get a run of games. Neither will I be alone in wanting Geovanni to play a greater role in the side.

As Sven says, 'The future is ours.'

Stop Press: This week, France Football are suggesting a link between City and Saint Etienne in January. Georgios Samaras is touted as a potential signing for Les Verts. Could my top tip, their right side midfield creator Pascal Feindouno move in the other direction?

JB, totally agree about Bianchi and Geovanni. They are goal scorers and we need them in the side. It's our only failing this season. What about Bianchi up front with Geovanni and Elano behind. Hamann behind Johnson and Ireland and the usual back 4. Bolton are to be feared and we need to be physical at the back and midfield but with this front 3, we'll batter their defence.

Post Bolton game - either Elano wasn't fit or he's rested for Spurs on Tuesday. A great turn-around and I believe he went 4-4-2 second half. Delighted to see Bianchi start and score and last 87 mins. Mpenza days must be numbered with the loan signing of Castillo. I understand he missed a 1 on 1 today. Fantastic blues-looking forward to MotD.

I am not with contracting with Castillo now, Becouse a Latin American strikers needs longer time to adapt to the English league, it is not sufficient period loan of mid-season, And I remember when Wanchope played to Man City from mid-season before foure years, He can not sufficient only at the last two games against Newcastle and Everton ( Wanchope play before with Derby County )
