    Yeah, clearly he's not up to snuff or Mancini would play him as they are desperate for a fit left-back. Obviously there's no short-term future for him there, he needs to go out on loan and get some games under his belt.

    He is 19yo and highly regarded by both Mancini and Trap. Whatever he has been doing up to now has worked just fine.

    It would be a huge risk to play him against Chelsea. The likes of Malouda and Anelka have destroyed world class full backs in the past, let alone a 19-year-old novice. A player like Cunningham needs to be gradually eased in. Mancini even admitted his first competitive start last night was ahead of schedule.

    Aye that's a fair point - if it was the likes of Bolton then his attitude would probably be different.

    Heard Cunningham is joining Leicester on loan. It's be good to see him get some first team action.

    good to hear, these young lads need game time.

    can we really see him getting into the first team at man city, ever though?

    Frankly, no. Mancini under too much pressure to get instant success to waste time developing a young player. A period on loan followed by a move seems like the best we can hope for to be honest.

    Good to hear. Looks like Eriksson is reviewing his old Man City post-it notes, bringing in Darius Vassel as well.

    I seriously doubt it. Wouldn't exactly break my heart to see him move on either.

    Ah, to be fair he's had a good long look at Boyata and he certainly seems to rate Cunningham. It's very rare to see two 19 year olds getting game time in defence at any Premier League club, let alone one with a limitless credit card.

    The Sven connection must be at work here. Cunningham can only have been, what, 16 when Eriksson left the club? Interesting.

    It will be our first real chance to judge him properly. If he does half as well as Coleman at Blackpool he will be a sucess

    Excellent news. I'm sure he'll be very excited at the prospect of linking up with his old mate Darius Vassell.

    Leicester at 40/1 for the division title.

    They might well be down to 20/1 after the weekend

    16 points behind? I don't think so really, could make the play offs for sure though

    If enough perception is created in the next few games that Leicester are capable of getting run together, then their odd will tumble, sustaining the run is another matter. If a sound manager comes into a team with potential & money and is able to rectify the immediate weaknesses then who knows what can happen in that league.
    Will Cunningham get a run out this Saturday? he would hardly go to a club if he was just to be a reserve?

    I would imagine Sven must be familiar with him from his Man City days and wouldn't have loaned him if he didn't wish to play him.

    Hardly likely that Greg would go to a club that was not going to play him.
    Hardly likely that Sven would sign a loan player and not play him.

    2 x hardly likely = it's unbelievable that Greg won't play on Saturday .

    Left-back Greg Cunningham goes straight into the squad following his arrival on loan from Manchester City.
