After seeing the PFA results today, I really do believe Yaya Toure deserves to win the Premier League's player of the year award.

#JusticeForYaya

The influence he has on Manchester City is unbelievable and has stepped it up in every single big game. I honestly consider him to be the best midfielder in Europe. Perhaps Yaya is right - the fact he is African may well be hindering his status among the 'greats'.

FFP is not as bad as 1st feared,there will be sanctions:
1. 21 Player Squad Limit
2. The wage of the concerned team cannot be more than it has be for their last season's champions league campaign.
3. 16.5m will be withheld from the money the club earn from the champions league for next 3 season.

These might be what City and PSG might be facing next year.

What odds can I get on Pellegrini not being in charge for the start of next season?

My step brother went to Rome the other day and on the way home thought the plane was going to crash having yo make an emergency landing. It was an electric fault and while they were making the emergency landing the plane was giving off a lot of smoke on the outside, my arse would've went. Not long after they landed though the fault was fixed and the plane was given the all clear and got back on it. I would've gone fuck that I'll find a different flight.
I was quite happy that they did well because he's gone to a lot of away European matches and got fucked over. One of those with a season ticket plus rarely misses an away match. I wish I had a friends like that who wanted to go to football a lot but couldn't spend that much following United because I'd rather spend my money elsewhere.

I shouldn't have really been happy the qualified though because he's the most bitterest blue. The type that even when they were shit still would argue how city are better.

Growing up my close friends who were big football fans were city fans and the shit what would go back and fourth made me hate them so much. While disliking Liverpool and probably even more so with leeds, my hatred for them was nowhere near city because you only ever see the odd token scouser here and that and you don't have to face them the next day after a loss. Honestly think every business in Manchester has to have one token scouserworking for them :lol:

As I've got older though and my nephew has been a season ticket holder I don't mind city to much these days. Plenty of times I'm happy if they win when I know my nephews there, especially if he goes to am away game. My nephew is about 6 and had a few season tickets and was a mascot not long ago coming out with Silva. Great lad Silva, he saw him months after being a mascot and recognised my nephew in the crowd and let on to him.

Watched that Noel Gallagher interview with Gary Neville the other day, was really entertaining. Seems to be slightly less bitter these days. Probably down to having a great team.
Was fascinating when they were talking about how some City fans would prefer to go back to the days of being shit and mentioned Ricky Hatton as one of them who'd prefer that. Ive spoke to a few who think like that saying how the club isn't quite the same and it's strange now some who've been through the dark days are strange with the success. Think Blue Moon doesn't quite sit right with a great successful team and many City fans agree. It's like an underdog song and the only think what use to bring some hope in the dark days.

City played right into our hands,Pellegrini had picked a perfect team with 2 defensive midfielders fernandinho and fernando + milner as well,this would have been the perfect team to deal with a gung ho going arsenal and counter us for the win except,we did not go gung ho but it was city who did so...which was stupid seeing their team selection,they should have played smarter or if it was indeed Pellegrinis choice to go all attack from the beginning...He picked the wrong team he should have gone with 2 strikers.

City should go with 2 strikers,a defence of

Hart,Zabaleta,Demichelis,Kompany,Clichy...Midfield of Fernandinho,who can play ball to bombing forward Lampard,Silva on the left,Milner on the right to provide some cover and industry,Dzeko to hold the ball and some arieal threat while Aguero can provide the link up to midfield and attack..Should avoid Jovetic for that role and put Sergio in this match up,he is a hardworker..

Do you want to start with fernando and Fernandinho,too little attacking threat in my opinion..Going is 4-1-3-2 with navas,silva,milner is too all out..Navas if needed for milner and Fernandinho + Lampard to start..

What say citizens?

Wow, its been a while since I've been on this thread. Meyyappan, that's a good 11 on paper, the problem is Dzeko can be so lazy at times. He's a big guy, but he doesn't hold the ball up well, and isn't aggressive enough, Negredo and Aguero were a great partnership, shame it didn't last. I'm looking forward to seeing Bony and Aguero upfront.

@Mak, I liked that Neville-Gallagher interview, but I thought Gallagher was too romantic about the past, especially Maine Road. The way some go on, you'd think Maine Road had a carnival atmosphere every match, with everyone singing for 90 minutes. In reality it was just like the atmosphere nearly everywhere in the country, sometimes it was flat as a pancake, great for a big game, and so on. Times change, there was an opportunity to upgrade from Maine Road, and we had to take it, that's just how it is. Robinho going from the Bernabeu to Maine Road would have been hilarious. I honestly think fans like Ricky Hatton will just never be happy. If we were shit, they would complain about being shit. I think too many have been brainwashed by the likes of Talksport into believing the club has lost its soul or is no longer a club they can identify with. ADUG have done a great job giving former players like Bell and Summerbee roles with the club, Swales removed any links with the past, and turned us into a joke. I think the fact they're investing locally to give youngsters decent facilities is great. But some are just totally ignorant about that, and would only be happy if the club was run by Mancunians, and every player was born 5 miles away from the stadium. Maybe they should be reminded that it was a City fan Chairman who destroyed us. I know it may feel a bit strange to go from mediocrity and barren years to winning trophies, but that makes it taste all the more sweeter, yearning and hoping for better things during the dark days, now after so long, they're here! I also disagree about what Noel said about expanding the stadium, it's the right decision. I'm no fan of Bluemoon.

See Nastasic has made his move to Schalke permanent. Thoughts, Citizens?

Personally, from a neutral p.o.v, I'd say that City should've done more to retain him really. Could turn into a great centre-half in the future.

I'm no City fan, but I'll repeat what I said to you in the shoutbox; why on earth would Aguero leave City for another Premier League team? If he leaves he's going to look to move up, not make a sideways step or move down. So he'll go to Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich if they want him and City decide to deal.

Honestly, why the hell would City entertain selling him to Arsenal?

I did not see your reply at the shoutbox,i said this in the heat of the moment,but anyways Bayern do not want a striker,real madrid if they get one they will have to move benzema or he himself might do that,barcelona are transfer banned and with their front 3 wont be buying anytime soon,chelsea wont spend that much with costa around,he definitely would not go to united and they wont sell to him....so the pipe dream i had was not that bad at all.

But he has to want to leave and city have to decide to let him go and with his recent performances and his cult hero status,it probably would ot happen and thats why it is a pipe dream.

It was a bad pipe dream. First of all, why would Aguero want to leave City and go to Arsenal? Secondly, why would City want to sell? Thirdly, why would City want to sell to a rival? Lastly, why would they only be selling for £50m?

The only two teams I'm seeing going after Aguero (with a reasonable chance of signing him) are Real Madrid and Bayern. The germans mostly, Ribery and Robben won't last forever. They could get a Gotze-Muller-Aguero trio upfront with no positions assigned, just let them play. Real doesn't need him while they have Benzema, the fans might not like him but they know he's good and important in the team.

As for Aguero himself I believe he wants to leave City, and will only move to a team with higher chances of winning the league/UCL. In other words, no Arsenal.

Lewandowski,you forgot about him.

Well because man city need an overhaul and seem to be on the decline and with ffp will they be able to buy players to do an overhaul of the squad?But yes why would they sell to us?and why only 50m are fair questions.

They do need a overhaul, but getting rid of their best player and one of the few who will only come out of this season with credit is not the way they will go.

What do you reckon guys, Pellegrini out this summer?

Is he already on borrowed time, whilst City wait for the right man to become available (i.e. Guardiola) ?

Suppose time will tell. It could be argued that City would benefit from an injection of some young talent / pace into the team, while some of their high wage-earners are starting to get to the latter stages of their careers. But then again, would be weird seeing City without someone like Yaya Toure.
