UTD fan here,

TBH all other people are just jealous of what city have at the moment. I think that its a gud thing for city but bad for football in general becuase wages will start to go through the roof (more than they are now John Terry 120,000 a week whats that about, becuase of Roman) and becuase they no they can afford it city will be paying far too much for players, ok so 30m for Robinho isnt such a bad price but it wont stay that way for long.

Its all rosey and bright at mintute but what happens when things don't go according to plan look at liverpool with thoses tow fighting like a kids in play ground and I dont need to say anything about newcaslte.

Anyways good luck you will need it.

The Argentina team of the 2006 World Cup is probably the ugliest sight in football I've ever seen. Have a look, i think you'll agree they're quite ugly.

My fellow Blues, are we loving it loving it loving it or what.

the most pleasing of all this is the way how supporters of the so called top 4 trying to rub salt to thier own wounds. hahahahahah

you lot glory hunting idiots, will never know how it feels to be rewarded for truley supporting a team through thick and thin.

top 4 who?? with world's richest man behind us, the world brightest young manager at our club and with our acadmy being the world's finest, in a two or three years there will be a top 1 MANCHESTER CITY AWH MY MANCHESTER CITY.

SerieA is correct. All of a sudden thousands of people who live in Manchester have decided to claim they are City fans and go on about supporting their team through thick and thin.

Talk about gloryhunting.

Dont start knocking neutrals in Manchester, thank god their supporting City instead of 'Trafford' United. It allows us to get a foothold back in the fanbase of the city from all those people who started to support united because they won titles years ago.
CITY TIL I DIE

I think the new owners have got the right idea of creating something which will last and having fun doing it BUT neither of those things will happen if Hughes remains as manager.He doesn't create flair teams and doesn't employ flamboyant tactics unless one considers "hoof,chase and cut them down" as flamboyant.He is lucky now with the wave of exuberance sweeping down of the Brazilian factor and new ownership but long term it will need a world class manager capable of harnessing the talents that will come. Sorry to point out that Blackburn and Wales don't make the cut required here.Hughes must go and before the January transfer window.

Hughes has managed the team now for 4 months and we have beaten, in some style, 2 teams in Sunderland and Portsmouth who have spent a lot of money in the summer...and we're still in europe. Credit where credit is due...we were beaten 8 - 1 at 'Boro under Sven!
Early days yet, but Hughes must go....????
I don't think so.

TeatimeAtHarrods:

I think you are completely wrong about Hughes. He is a manager that has proven that he can motivate players and build a team with limited resources. He has not proven he can build a successful team with unlimited resources, but few managers have (Mourinho maybe, even Ferguson has been limited to a degree that Hughes won't be).

If Hughes understands the right structure to follow (which he clearly does), can motivate and get the respect of the players (which he can, despite his lack of managerial experience) and has the backing of the owners, then he will be a huge success for Man City.

As a Liverpool fan I was disappointed with the new City owners statements today. They appear well balances, sensible and willing to back their manager and this can only be bad news for Liverpool. I was hoping they'd sack him and bring in Keegan or something !!!
