    A bit unfair on Mancini given that both Ireland and Bellamy seem to be on their way out of the club anyway. As the full squad isn't available yet the manager has to use the players he has available for a pre-season friendly but I don't expect to see any of these three in City's starting eleven in a couple of weeks.

    They looked dire against NYRB yesterday especially Bridge.

    Given the money he's spending/still liable to spend, reckon he should get a few months. Though top four is a must.

    Yeah, cos pre season is where the points are given out. I'd say he has a season and prob more if they hit top 4. Good start so far though for him.
    The above is all opinion and based on personal experience. Unless stated otherwise it is not a dig at anybody, well probably none of you lot.
