So I've heard news that Dzeko is set to be offered a new contract. To me personally, I think that's great news. He has been consistent and without him, we wouldn't have scored many goals in the absence of Aguero.

What do you guys think? Keep the Diamond or is it time for him to move on?
I say keep him, I wasn't too sure before because of all the sure goals he missed but he has proven with the right set up and constant playing time he can get goals, and he is a great back-up striker to have, I would rather have him than go out and get another striker who isn't capable of handling the Epl.

Any news on what's next for guidetti?
I hope rekik gets a chance next season,If not I don't see the purpose of our academy, and it would be a real shame for the club to not use it, and continue spending needlessly when talent is at the door knocking.
Rekik is going to be an amazing CB for City and Netherlands one day but I don't think Rekik is ready for City next season and I'd rather send him off on loan to PSV for another season rather then bring him back and have him on the bench all season.

Look at the positive side, before joining PSV Rekik was never played top division football before and now at PSV not only is he getting minutes but also he got a call from the Netherlands national team against France last month. I mean that's a huge step up and we need to let him continue to grow. Rekik is like Courtois, the more he plays and the more season he has under his belt the better he gets. Despite being on loan this season to PSV and the positive that's been happening I don't think his ready for City just yet. If I was Pelle I would send him on loan for another season.
+1
I see your point, but he rekik said in an interview, if we sell lescott and richards he wants a chance.

I don't see why we can't give him a chance, look at sterling, he is the same age as rekik and he is performing so well at Liverpool, who is to say rekik couldn't form an invincible partnership with kompany.

Its interesting but I really don't know how it would play out because it would come down to:

#1. Kompany/Nastasic/Demichelis/X
or
#2. Kompany/Nastasic/Demichelis/Rekik
Best paid team in sports and collected 5 points out of 12 in recent 4 games(Southhampton, Arsenal, Liverpool, Sunderland) speaks all.

Just my opinion, MP is not suitable manager for league competition(He wants his style and it does not get result enough to win title after 38 games in 9 months), he is a manager for knock out competition. We're not there up to the standard to win CL so MP will deliver some domestic knock out trophies.

And there could be UEFA ban to buy us players, if that happens it will be disaster in our defence

I have feeling that we may still loose 3-5 points on the road. I hope and wish I will be wrong.
He will learn that defending is equally as important as attacking, he has to if he wants league success and to keep his job.

There are some games you have to win by digging deep to fight and win ugly to have a chance at winning title, you can't play flashy football every single game, some teams will set up for that and restrict you and there will always be a dip in form and that's where the title is won, if you can win games that you are second best when you are not playing well then you are on your way to greatness.
No, what he need to do is to play with more dynamic tactic according to his opponent weakness. Rather than just one style for all.

One more season for him. To fast to make a call
Pelle knows our defense is weak. Yes he focuses on the attacking football style bringing in Navas, Negredo, Jovetic and a Fernandinho to give Yaya that freedom in the attack but he wanted to sign Mangala and Fernando from Porto as a defensive reinforcements on deadline day in the winter window but that fell apart.

@Mylica, I agree. We need to me more dynamic tactically because we come in with one style and when that doesn't work we don't have a plan B. We need to be able to break down our opponents due to their weakness.

Overall, I think Pelle is the man for the job. Obviously this is his first season in the PL so I mean his still in the learning curve off the end. At the least now he knows that the PL is and what to expect. Things can change very, very quickly for any title challenger at the end of the season because the title so near and every contender wants it.

Btw, I hope this is true. http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/apr/15/manchester-city-uefa-financial-fair-play-rules

I read about City being one the 76 clubs being under investigation by Uefa but I'm hoping we get out of this mess. Although our deficit in 12-13 was 51.6mil much better compared to the two seasons before were our deficit was 150mil. I hope Uefa looks into that and lets us go this time but really we need to stop using more then we make at this point. This summer our top priority should be a CB. We could try to keep Rodwell if his willing to stay or else promote an academy player to take his place that's not injury prone. Also we need a RB replacement for Richards.
i gotta say when Jovetic came on the game changed completely! he caused quite a bit of trouble to sunderland defenders
Yes .. it was a welcome change
Wow who would have thought. We went from a week from Liverpool vs City for the title and who's going to gain control but now us drawing against Sunderland just gave Chelsea a huge title push and an opportunity for them to win. Now the title is going towards either Chelsea or Liverpool.

MP, I'm lost for words. Starts out of form Negredo and Silva not even on the bench for a game that means a lot for our chance of a title hope. Even without Silva we should beat Sunderland with the quality we have. I just don't know what to say other then disappointing in how things turned out for us, its a shame.
I really think its over for us, Chelsea are 1 point ahead even if we win the game in hand. We should of beat Arsenal and draw against Liverpool, but this result has made it more clear to me. We're going to have to depend on Liverpool and Chelsea to drop points from now on.
I wonder how Dzeko feels. He's been playing so well and then suddenly when Aguero is back, he's being replaced by Negredo. God I feel for him man.

You must admit, their goals were lucky. It sucks so badly that Nasri missed that last chance, there would be very different discussions happening on the forum had it gone in.

Nonetheless, onto the next game. We can just win the rest of our games and hope Lady Luck will be on our side.
TBH, I think both team could have been winner. Borini messed up that big chance in the first half and their keeper shamefully let that Nasri's shot went in. And that Nasri's shot (one after goal) had gone in...he really should have buried it.
We all have to factor in also that MP is new to the EPL, and it takes a certain tactical approach to win the EPL, for him to do this in his first season would have been a great achievement but let's not fool ourselves it's not that easy, yes we have talented players, their work rate also factors in the possibility for MP to win the league in his first season, but like I said before it also takes a certain tactical approach to win the league, hopefully MP can recognise this approach, I really don't want to see him get sacked.
+1
Pelle has a certain balance to the way he manages the team. But his selection for the team has been ridiculous this late to the season, like why the fck Didn't Navas start today we needed his speed. Nasri ran out of ideas, no one looked like they wanted to score today.
+2
A draw at home against the bottom table team. Earlier in the season it would have been 6-0
Dude everyone knows Sunderland is City's Kryptonite.
+1
Even superman finds some way to deal with kryptonite and save the day, it's pity we can't do the same, maybe we are not so super as everyone thinks we are.
+1
So you guys are fighting for the title and rest Silva when he clearly was a magician in the previous match.. MP and Wenger pissing me off. At least now Liverpool got a higher chance of winning the league.
OK. Aguero's working his way back to full fitness, and Yaya and Silva both picked up knocks. Does that excuse the rest of the team not playing with any conviction whatsoever?

It's enough to make you want to punch something in frustration. All these players are immensely gifted but they act like they only have to put maximum effort in for 10 minute bursts once a game or so. After the 2nd minute they looked like they were ready to head home. It's just not good enough.
To add to that, my barber told me when the game was showing that we have the highest paid players in overall sports, second is the baseball team Mets and third the Dodgers, how do you think that makes die hard fans feel? All that money being spent and no fight? Sometimes I rather we had 11 players from the academy who wants to fight for every inch of ball, I envy Liverpool, they are honestly on the right track, their players are hungry for success.
Liverpool has the same squad as they had last year and the year before and the year before, were they hungry for success then too? when they finished 7th and 8th and ect....
+1
they are just lucky cos they played nearly half as less games as us and chelsea did
+2
^We have a squad with more depth and "better players". No luck in this mate, you have to be hungry in every compitition if you want silverware, every player have to step up and be counted, I guarantee you next season when liverpool purchase key players they need with another set of youngsters coming through their ranks they will still be in top 4, we'll see though.

But Don't forget Liverpool participated in the Capital and FA cup just one less compitition than us, not that much of a difference. Wigan was more hungry knocked us out, we showed Barcelona way too much respect at our home instead of playing our game from the get go, and we got lucky with some individual brilliance to get the "mickey mouse cup" from sunderland.

Now tell me how does that look for all that money invested in players? I am not saying we should be winning every compitition but when you are so close to to silverware you expect players to be showing some fight and not just turning up and expect to go through.
+4
we played more games than they did in the capital one cup cos we made it all the way to the final and won it! we also played more games in the FA cup than they did! their squad has played much less than we have and thats why their squad looks fresh! its not that they have more hunger its that they are more fresh... Mourinho Suarez Brendan Rodgers and many more have said that Liverpool has a massive advantage because they are playing nearly half as less games as the others have.
Guys i am no trolling or anything , trying to have sensible conversation.
+1
@napada : Bro

The liverpool Starting 11 includes a 20 year old Jon Flanagan (of whom no one must have heard before )
A 19 year old Prodigy in raheem sterling
Jordan Henderson , who wasn't trusted to come this good before this season.
Steven Gerrard Playing Defensive mid , clearly out of position to cover for lucas (Describes our squad depth )
Our bench :
Victor moses (wouldn't even make your reserve squad)
Ally Cissokho(Oh come on)
Luis alberto(20 year old would be star , hasn't done anything yet )
Agger & Lucas( ok , they are good )
A Always injured Joe allen !

City will have played 14 more games than liverpool at the end of the season ,clearly with the squad you have , it shouldn't be a problem.
+3
@Ashup78

How many Luis Suarez are on your team? How many David Silva and Yaya Toure are on Man City? If you don't think playing 14 more games is a disadvantage, you are kidding yourself.

A team maybe strong, but it has certain players around which the squad is built, that drive the play. Silva and Toure are those players for Man City, and when they get tired, the team is toothless.

You'll find out next year how terrible your team will look after that mid-week champions league game. We lost to Villa and Crystal Palace following mid-week champions league. And that game on Sunday was pretty much a European night type of a game and atmosphere. that dip in form is expected, especially when you rest your most important players.

You may get away with it for a few weeks, but as the season drives on, the legs get heavier and heavier.
and to say we had the same squad as the past two years is a little far fetched.. as a football player I really don't think they mind the extra games, they're getting paid ridiculous sums of money and doing what they love.

what it comes down to is passion and determination, something Brendan Rodgers is instilling into Liverpool's players. Its as if were playing for something more than the title (the 96) and have the best captain in the world driving our players.

So @Napada17, I wouldn't necessarily say it comes down to the amount of games we had. It mostly comes down to having an amazing captain, a club surrounded with expectation, and a fan base that literally acts as a 12th man. The atmosphere last night at the ethiad wasn't remotely good enough for a team of cities quality.
+2
Not troll just have to answer@moeb.This is the riches club on the plant if your gona start making excuses for them just bcoz two of their top players wasn't playing then somethings wrong. Man city knew they were fighting on all four fronts at the Beginning of the season and bought Accordingly, the man city faithful know their football and don't want no excuses on why they shouldn't have beaten sunderland last night. So for this Moeb8 to say look how ur terrible team will be bla bla bla,look liverpool will buy players enough to fight on all 4 fronts if we get knocked out on all Competitions is bcoz we weren't good enough No excuses nothing to do wiv two of players was out. That's type excuses man utd n chelsea have not man city n livepool.
+2
@Ashup78 @CTscouser8 @ONLYONE u r talking about 14 games more mind u most of them were champions league and to play a champions league game is like playing 3 premier league games and u know why? because there is traveling involved u r playing europes top teams because only top 4 or top 3 of each league in europe makes its not the same! there is a massive difference but none of u liverpool fans seem to understand that! anyways i will have this convo with u guys next year as well i will see how far u will be in the league
@ONLYONE. "liverpool will buy player to fight all four fronts" Oh you make it sound so simple! In fact I thought the same thing when the season started for City but games add up and players get tired because they are human. Of course Liverpool hasn't played in CL yet so don't come here making it sound like its going to be a walk in the park because its not.
"Liverpool hasn't played in CL yet" ...you've got to be kidding me. Liverpool won it ten years ago and were in the final in 2007... played in the comp just a mere 4 years ago, they know how it is. don't get so cocky with Man Cities new found success and Liverpool's small fumble due to a bunch of imbeciles owning the club. if it wasn't for Cities middle eastern oil money you'd still be a quiet little team from manchester vying for 6th or 7th place. we'll see how Liverpool deal with it next year.
okay CTscouser stop the oil money talk , they have the money we don't . If we had it even we would use it , baseless arguement .
And guys , what i am trying to say is that with the hundreds of millions city has spent and the quality in the city squad don't you think that 'Liverpool has got less games to play , thats why they are top ' is a silly excuse ?
Being honest here , Almost all the teams over the years in the tittle race have always been in the champions league , this is probably a rare occasion with the liverpool side being top.
At the start of the season no one said that liverpool have less games so they have a good chance at the tittle , it was always city and chelsea who were real contenders .
Chelsea are still in the CL and also are in strong contention for the League , I think you get what i am trying to say .
guys here blaming MP for dropping silva?? why the hell would he start Negredo?? dude is invisible! its like playing a man down...MP also is not very good at mind games and he's definitely not good at relieving the pressure off the players thats one thing Mancini was good at and Mourinho learnt from him by telling the press his team is out of the race, way early on.
It's his first season, hopefully he will learn like mancini did.

what is it that u said ? lol
