Full squad for the US Tour:
Goalkeepers: Joe Hart, Willy Caballero, Richard Wright, Ian Lawlor

Defenders: Micah Richards, Matthias Bossaerts, Jason Denayer, Karim Rekik, Matija Nastasic, Dedryck Boyata, Gael Clichy, Aleksandar Kolarov

Midfielders: Fernando, Samir Nasri, Scott Sinclair, Javi Garcia, Emyr Huws, Jack Rodwell, Bruno Zuculini, James Milner, David Silva, Jesus Navas, Yaya Toure

Forwards: Alvaro Negredo, John Guidetti, Kelechi Ihenacho, Stevan Jovetic, Edin Dzeko
I hope karim rekik gets first team action this season. personally Id prefer him over the overly expensive mangala.
His going to get his shot but not over Mangala. Mangala has age, games minutes, physical presence and more attributes that fit the PL over Rekik who has shown potential in Eredivise but his only had one good consistent season where his played over 20 games whereas Mangala has multiple seasons and experience.
Hearing rumors Javi Garica looks to be the man who could be sold to balance things out. Wouldn't mind if that happened. With Fernando now around, it looks like his opportunities are limited even more.

Agreed, Garcia can be solid at times but he lacks a bit of pace that is needed against top teams.
I disagree guys. Last season we were one injury to Yaya or Dinho away from having 0 midfield cover. Selling Javi would negate any depth we just added, besides Javi really stepped up his game last season.
You do make a good point about him stepping up last season but the pace of the league is something he can't keep up with consistently and despite his good showing its not enough to make up for his bad showings and if that's the case I'd rather give the chance to a young academy product like Emyr Huws who shown potential and send Javi Garica to a league that suits his style better that way don't have to sell a player like Nastasic.
If Nastasic goes I am going to be very annoyed. He is one of our best prospects going forward. I have no idea why we would sell one of our best talents, for cheap.

Rumors are out that Arsenal are willing to pay 16 million pounds for him. Would be sad if he has to go. Selling him to Arsenal is foolish in my opinion. We should keep him for the EPL squad and not involve him for the CL roster if that's what it takes.
One thing is certain, either Rodwell or javi are going to be sold
@Tomi, I agree I can't stand to bare the though of selling him, I rate him above Rekik. When in form his one of the best young CBs in the league if not Europe and after the injury struck season his had its not fair to see him out that way. Especially for 16mil, which would make City look like idiots because in a few years his going to be worth at least more then 30mil. I agree we should just remove him for CL but I don't know how happy he would be about that, every player wants to play in Cl and if he can't I don't know if his going to want to stay.

we can always bring up youth players
And how many youth players can we bring up with the composure, execution and vision that Nastasic already has in his locker at a young age whereas youth players even in the Pl his age don't come close because it takes them years to really capture that skill set for a CB while his already got it. It would rather be foolish to let him go.
City to train within a stones throw of my home in New Jersey.. Sometime between the Sporting KC friendly on Wednesday and the AC Milan game in Pittsburgh on Sunday! I have Friday off so hopefully they will be training then!

Anyone thinks Pelle would be fired if we fail to get any silverware this season?
No, not at all. I mean why would we? He can't possibly be under the hot seat to win the title or go every season his in charge because their really isn't a better replacement for him if he got sacked plus his already done enough. I remember the owner saying that we need to win 5 trophies in 5 years or something like that, well Pelle already knocked off 2 titles in his first season in charge.

Pelle is a great manager, he lead the likes of Villarreal and Malaga deep into the CL campaign when he was in charge and considering that's one of Man City's goals theirs is no better man to do so then Pelle himself, it would be rather foolish if we didn't win the title this upcoming season and he was sacked.
You make a good point moe, but we all know the board members in the epl aren't rational when it comes to sackings of managers.

If pelle were to be sacked I'd go crazy, because that would be crazy, I would be really ashamed of my club.
Well Txiki Begiristain is a smart fella tbh, his helped City get the best possible players and he got us Pelle to replace Mancini which is great because looking at other top Euro teams some directors bring in managers that are no help to push the team. I love and respect Mancini but Pellegrini was a major step up to helping Man City turn things after last 12/13 season display.
Another valid point, and I respect what he has done, hence it would be crazy to sack pelle after what he has done in just his first season :)
Injury blow for Negredo


Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo expects to be sidelined “for a few months” after breaking his foot.

The Spain international, who played the first half of City’s friendly victory over Hearts on Friday, has broken the fifth metarsal in his right foot.

“I want to let you know that its going to be hard for the next few months, I fractured my 5th metatarsal and will be out a few months,” Negredo wrote on his Instagram account with an accompanying picture of him wearing a protective boot.
Its a quite troubling situation for us. With Negredo out, Aguero still not 100% which clearly showed in the WC, it comes down to if he has a good preseason in him because he hasn't looked convincing in a while. The only striker left is Dzeko and him alone isn't enough. Hopefully Jovetic can stay injury free which is not insured to the slightest considering his long injury list since joining us last season. The two Balkans have to step for City.
Time for Jojo to step up.
Can someone explain to me the squad size issue that's going on? I know you have to have 17 non-homegrown players for the Pl but what is it for CL?

away kit?
+1
Last season's away kit with black and golden print is better imo
^ The black and gold kit is one of our best looking kits, glad I got me one:)
I really like these actually. I like the black and gold too but have never been much a fan of buttons on shirts without a collar like the black and golds
Nastasic and Rekik as CBs for the Hearts game. Awesome! Our future pair.
+1
lol sinclair looks good.
Sinclair could have been a top player but he choose to move to the wrong club. At Swansea he was getting starting minutes and looked like a developing young future star winger until his development stopped since his move.
Under Kompany's tutoring they will learn a lot and potentially be great prospects for the future, excited to see Mangala play too
Why on God's green earth are we thinking of selling Nastasic?

Matija had a breakout first season where his stats rivaled the best defenders in the country and showed his comfort against big strikers like Ronaldo in the big stage. The second season was injury plagued. Similar to Varane. I don't understand why we are selling someone with so much promise. He could be our very own Serbian god a la Vidic.

Even thinking logically, if we sell Nastasic we are left with Kompany/Mangala/Demichelis. Knowing Kompany's injury record we could be left with fielding Garcia and Demichelis as CBs again. Utter bunch of tosh.
+1
I don't understand it either; however, the thinking behind selling him apparently is to promote Rekik to the 1st team as his replacement. Anyways, it'll be a huge mistake to sell him but hopefully it's just the media BS rumors.
+1
i think the number of international player restriction plays a big part in this sale. sad really.
@Blueheart how does that matter at all? Just don't name Nastasic as a CL player this year, that's all. He could play in the EPL and other tournaments. Starting next year the sanctions would drop and we will be raring to go again.
owh i thought he is 22
I also hope this is B.S. Nastasic is going to be one of the best CBs along with the likes of Varane one day and it would be one of City's biggest mistake selling him. His first season he was just full of class, never going to forget his debut vs Real Madrid. It just wouldn't be right to sell him.

I would send Rekik on loan again because if I was Pellegrini would start Nastasic over Rekik any day of the week. When Nastasic is healthy and in form his simply amazing while Rekik is certainly getting better his not at that level yet to earn a starting XI place over Mangala and Nastasic. I'd sent him on loan again and this time to a much tougher league then the Eredivise to really test him like the Bundesliga or Serie A where he'll go toe to toe with some great attacking teams.
