    Is Adebayor being left out by Mancini or is he injured? Haven`t been watching city games lately.

    Ade's dealing with an ankle injury for the past few weeks, then he ****s off to the African Cup of Nations if I'm not mistaken.

    Jabo: That was some of the smoothest passing I have ever seen, would've been amazing if Carlos put it away but he just nicked it the wrong way.

    kp40: Yup, I'm not getting too excited. A home win over Stoke isn't much to brag about, the Wolves win was impressive but then again it was Wolves, so meh. Not stopping Mancio though, he came out today saying winning the title is realistic after seeing the 3-0 win at Wolves..........

    PS: 6 clean sheets in the league this season, 4 of them without Lescott in the starting line-up. Kompany's played 4 games as CB, 3 clean sheets.

    We can officially say Lescott is the most overrated defender in a LONG time. IMO, he doesn't deserve a spot in the England team.

    Should've had more than 1 goal, but another clean sheet... Well done. Boyata looked incredibly solid and composed in central defense, only 18, solid prospect. Benjani had 2 good touches all game, one happened to be the finish. He's definitely on his way out, probably on loan to Pompey.

    PS: Rumours flying about Cordoba being our first signing. Really not necessary, Kompany's more capable at CB and Micah can fill in at CB while Toure and Lescott are out, and when they're back we'd just have a headache selection at the back. Get a decent left-back to replace Bridge and I'm happy with our squad. Done.

    I got really bored and read through this entire thread just to laugh at some of the pre-season predictions and signings and stuff and ran into this...... 2-1.

    It's obvious. he's playing Assassin Creed II. I'm sure he will support both Milan and Inter when he comes back.

    Vieira having his medical at City, 18-month deal for him. In other news, we're also being linked with Cygan, Pires, Ljungberg and want to bring Keown out of retirement to join Toure and Adebayor for the return trip to Emirates Stadium later this year...

    Why Vieira?? You guys have Ireland and Barry (and Kompany) who can play DM.

    Unlike Hughes who were obsessed with strikers, I think Mancini has holding midfield fetish.

    It's good to coach a wealthy team.

    Because he wants to sign one holding mid, who he's already worked with before?

    I really liked the fact that City never signed any has-been players in their new era.

    Maybe Mancini thinks they need more experience at midfield area.

    I think they need quality defenders (both full back and center back).
