Get,Get ,Get, over it...

Listen to yourselves.. do the majority of you even watch football?

Mark Hughes and in particular HIS coaching staff was taking us backwards, yes backwards. the stats dont lie.

Mark Hughes spent upwards of £80m to improve a defence that shipped more goals than bottom of the table Portsmouth.

He picked players on reputations and price tags rather than current form and ability.

He stuck with his own signings as to prove a point that he was a GREAT manager.

The truth is somewhat different.

MCFC were quite right to change their direction, the only gripe to many is that they bungled their way around it.

Garry Cook will, if left in control at our great club, do more damage than anyone outside ever could.

Roberto Mancini.

He is a WINNER.

As a footballer and a manager he WINS.

Now i understand this takes a lot of getting used to being a CITY fan, but which would you prefer.

Happily playing in Div 2 or taking on the so called big boys and WINNING trophies.

?????

Our new boss..

Roberto Mancini is spot on in my book.. He's there for 6mths with a 3yr option.. aim is Top 4.. Hughes and his cohorts had 18mths, and they were aiming for was Top 6 with £200m spend.

And do u for one moment think that any so called British manager would have come to City for 6mths.. WOULD THEY FUCK.. cos all they want is.. more money and a huge CONTRACT.. to line their GREEDY pockets with..

You have all these PONY british managers.. and so called MEDIA pundits, moaning that Mancini coming in is terrible for British football.. No.. I'll tell you whats terrible, is the UK clowns trying to convince us.. the FANS that they have a clue what do with £200m, and that they ARE in turn FOOTBALL MANAGERS.

If he can sort out that squad.. and make Robinho something more than a glorified ballboy.. then he's got my VOTE.

If he can make Adebayor JUMP and attempt to play within a team, then he has my VOTE.

If he can make TOURE see that the reason he was bought was because he is supposed to be a defender, then he gets my VOTE.

If he can turn possession into GOALS, then he has my VOTE, and draw into WINS, then he also has my VOTE.

Because MARK HUGHES.. was outta his DEPTH at CITY.

He was much more suited to BLACKBURN, BOLTON, STOKE, WIGAN.. teams where the only AMBITION is to stay in the PREMIERSHIP.

We are CITY and we DESERVE more..

And with MANCINI.. we'll have something proper to aspire too..

We'll be WINNERS..

Snow

SNOW. Pure white and glorious stuff.. if yer a kid, you'll love it, its magical, its uplifting, its cold and it sometimes sticks to the ground.

In London its had maybe 4 inches of snow in a few weeks.. yep, you heard right.. 4 measly inches..

Snow is bad for transportation.. WHY.. Because on this island, well we just aint used to SNOW.

Nothing new there. In England we aint used to leaves falling off the trees, rain thundering from the skies, wind howling and shaking the buildings.. but SNOW it seems is a nuisance, that Councils and now Governments have trouble dealing with.

Ya see this weeks wonderous but very slight SNOWstorm (ha), caused 100,000+ passengers to miss their connecting Eurostar trains to and from Europe, because the wrong TYPE of SNOW, yes you heard me, the wrong type, infiltrated the Eurostar trains electrical systems when the trains hit the Channel Tunnel in Calais, France.

What was wrong with the SNOW you cry.. Apparently it was too DRY and FLUFFY.. oh good..Glad thats cleared up.

We see Snowstorms on the news, we see Monsoons, we see Avalanches, we see Tsuanamis, we see disasters all over the globe and on this poor little island, we see things grind to a halt because of 4 inches of SNOW.

I seen with my own eyes yesterday evening. A gritter ( sand) truck attempt to lay sand on a nearby road, a full two hours after the SNOW had fallen.. Whats the point Einstein,a blind man could tell you that SNOW was on its way, or where the roads too dangerous for you to drive yer bloody sand wagon.

More ineptness follows the news tonight that the COUNCILS them again, have decided that due to the adverse weather conditions, they will not be collecting REFUSE till into the NEW YEAR.. why you cry.. Because the roads are too dangerous..

You couldnt make this shit up.. And why am i surprised or bothered.. I'll tell ya why.. Why do we pay COUNCIL TAX.. to empty our refuse, to keep our roads clear, to provide us with the services we sometimes need and countless other ones we never see but we PAY for.

Inept councils chosen by an Inept Government in an Inept country funded in no part by Inept people..

Bah Humbug!

The hidden appointment of Roberto Mancini

Personally.. This wasnt planned 3 weeks ago.. This was all set into place last season with the sterling and hidden agenda appointment of BRIAN KIDD..

Then there was the appointment of BRIAN MARWOOD.. It seems our owners wanted their OWN MAN in charge all along. And ya cant blame them, if i pumped £500m into a football club, i would like to see my manager have a PLAN B..and from time to time.. a PLAN A.

Its the way Mr COOK crumbled under pressure yesterday that was EMBARRASSING

Is this the way the Arabs wanna be seen to be doing BUSINESS, after all , he's speaking for them when he comes out with his GAFFES.

A blind man could have told ya the PRESS would be looking for answers into the SACKING of MARK HUGHES, and it was totally NAIVE of Garry Cock Up to expect to be able to get away with a few unrehearsed lines on a sheet of A4.

They MEDIA sniffed BLOOD.. and oh my Garry.. well.. u may has well being hung upside down in a Butchers freezer..

I'm not gonna persecute GARRY COOK.. but im sure his BOSSES wont be best pleased with him when they see his latest offering zooming down the net to Abu Dhabi..

why the sacking of Mark Hughes was the correct decision

Dont you get it.. our owners aint prepared to wait for a season or two.. and deffo not after pumping millions into the club.. would you wait??

The CV is one thing.. the facts are another.

Garry Cook came to City city as somewhat of a sharp shoooter.. the facts are somewhat different, the way he's going he'd be lucky to get a job in Woolworths..

Mark Hughes came to City as a bright young manager due to his work at Wales and improving Blackburn on a shoestring budget, he's left now, im sure he'll be compensated.. and bounce back at a club of his level.. ie.. Bolton

Roberto Mancini has come in as our probably Number 3 choice.Gus Hiddink was never gonna come due to his Chelsea connections and Jose Mourinho has unfinished business at Inter.

The media paste a negative spin on Mancini due to the corruption in Italian football and their dislike of all things Manchester City.. This is not his fault and nor is it his undoing.

You still have to win..and you can only win and beat what is put in front of you..

I'm fairly sure we have the right man in charge on the touchline, and its up to him and his team to make sure we have the right quality on the pitch.

Mark Hughes v Roberto Mancini

ROBERTO MANCINI.. IS A PROVEN WINNER..

City press conference 21 dec

Ah, the last bastions of the 'modern world' - the press..

The British media have had it in for City for a long while, and this has been accelerated somewhat be our vast wealth.

I think we are still suffering for having Thaksin Shinawatra and Sven in charge especially with the media.

They dont like us..they dont respect us.. and whats more.. they cannot wait to see us fall..

WHY..

Because we threaten their cosy little lives and their fave little football teams, ie United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal.

In Garry Cook we have a chairman who is an accident waiting to happen.. or has it.

He makes Peter Kenyon look like Snow White.

His role in that press conference was laughable. As the press hovered for rich pickings.. he lived up to his role as the bungling executive who has little idea what football means to a club and its fans.

Its all very well sticking to the written statement Garry.. but when challenged you lose the plot, banging yer fists on the table like a frustrated schooolboy, you've lost the argument old bean, or was it not like that in Nike?

At least Mister Mancini kept his cool..he didnt look phased by the attack on his appointment,maybe he didnt understand what all the fuss was about.

After all.. they do things different in Italy..

Where form is temporary and class is most definitely permanent
