Mancini's Man City Mess Is A Dog's Dinner!
It's all going wrong already at Unreal City. They continue to splash the cash and what is being achieved? Yes fifth place was progress last season but it was only achieved because Liverpool were so crap. Based on pre season form, City are going to go backwards this year!
The spending is continuing but are Balotelli and Milner better than players already at City? I don't think so. Mancini is turning over the squad to put his own men in place but that is weakness personified. He has the personnel already, bloating the squad still further is just adding to the fat and building unrest. Now City have to shed players to meet the 25 player squad cap but players won't want to walk away from mega contracts, so City will have to fund inflated wages for players playing for rival clubs. What a mess! What a dog's dinner!
How long will Mancini stay in the job? The players don't like him and Jose's achievements at Inter have put the Italian's efforts into perspective. It takes time to build a team but will Mancini be afforded that time, or will he go the same way as Hughes some time in October? My money is on an early departure with player unrest and supporter protests forcing the hand of the money to burn owners.
City fans will yell "Jealousy" but everybody in the country outside of Eastlands wants the mercityenaries to fall flat on their wallets. Titles have been won by bank balances for a long time now but the Arabs have taken spending to new ridiculous levels. It isn't good for the game so it would be great to see the venture fail.
The 3-0 defeat to Inter Milan puts things nicely into perspective. You can buy a team but you can't buy class. In terms of cost, Man City are anything but cheap, but in terms of pedigree, they are more Chum than class!
