I`m not a Mancini fan and have stopped posting as regularly on here for fear of being disliked more than I am already. I just don`t like the bloke or think he`s right......

Cue all the 'consistency and let`s give him time merchants!' LOL) tongueout

He's digging his own grave by having this "I know better" aura. I'm not for getting shut of the bloke but he'll need to change his head if he wants to get result out of games like today's. Bet going away will suit us more 'cos teams will want to come out and play. This was a totally Hughes-like performance.

Can you imagine the boos that would have gone around the ground if we'd played West Brom at home been 2-0 up and only got a point.

You lot are pathetic
Half of you don't even turn upto the games, shown by the amount of empty seats at Wastelands.
Secondly you are having your best season in god knows how many years position wise and yet you still boo the team off the pitch.

Fredthered, I'm not into deleting posts, but go and spit bile elsewhere or I'll get shut of anything you write. Saddo.

We can't be accused of playing a similar game to the one we played against the rags. We had the whole game to sort out 1 goal and that's the disappointing thing. Adebayor had a chance to make a name for himself today, and if he's spat his dummy out he's a disgrace.

I get the impression that players are not playing for Mancini at all and the likes of Tevez, Johnson and Yaya Toure have got a had every bit as big as Mancini's on their shoulders.

Being happy with a draw against United does not mean you should be happy with a draw against Birmingham.

Was that really hard to figure out?

You will never win anything with Mancini running the show.

Big club, Small Team Mentality, they lacked belief.

Mancini's master stroke is to take off the only player that can grab a goal out of nothing (Tevez). Birmingham at home should be 3 Points.. Man City are capable of beating any team, but they have to get that winning mentality, or never giving up.. Like the reds did against A Villa.

Yo be honest, you have too many big pay small play players. They are happy to pick up their wage packets, but don't want to put in a shift.

It's obvious from the outside that Mancini is not big enough to get the respect of the players, there is internal fighting in the dressing room, and Mancini's manner is to blame for that.

You need the special one, but not sure you would get him.

Pearce, Sven, Hughes, Mancini.

Not top club managers.

Do we stick with Mancini and finish up 5th or sack him?

We have a good squad but do we trust Mancini is January to spend again?

Is there anyone who can come in now?

As Ive already said.

If we'd been 2-0 up and only got a point against West Brom then the boos would have been a lot worse.

FredtheRed and OldNewtonHeath.

that would have been a lot more embarrasing result than today.

BTW. United were again poor on the road, but at least you are consistent dropping 2 points on the road.

9pts out of 21 United

Chelsea will have won the league by Christmas.

==============================================

Finally, someone speaks the truth. Roberto knows that most teams that park the defense also have killer tactics to win crucial goals. You do not go jumping into attack when you are not comfortable at the back. We had 24 shots. The problem is not more attacking flair but killer shots. Killer free kicks and good aerial threat. One goal and the defense fall apart.

thats what the ABC's hope for but it wont happen.

"no "big" manager will touch it city with a barge pole"

why exactly?

its a dream job for a manager but "big" managers are in short supply.

it will come good but for this season we will probably sticky with Mncini

City were just not good enough to beat Birmingham today but Birmingham would not have been hard done by if they would have lost as they just defended and time wasted since the 34th minute. Can't really blame them as it is a good point for Brum but what really annoyed me was the referee's inability to stop Ben Foster taking roughly 30 seconds to take a free kick/goal kick. Only four minutes were added on and there was six substitutes but every failed city attack was greeted with Birmingam being allowed to take the sting out of city by time wasting. Can't blame Brum but te referee was very poor and if I was a neutral I would have switched off because it made it such a stop start game. Worst game i have seen at eastlands since wednesday night, oh wait it was the game from wednesday night..... rubbish nil nil bore draw.

yeah we are 4th a real mare!

your just a tube mate, "the end" the end of what your nose, your bell, what is the end?

City fans have stood by their club for decades if it all goes pop we will still be there so do one spanner.

more likely another club who reside just outside Manchester go pop first.

2001 Fergie says he's going to retire.

All the top managers would be interested. No

Hitzfeld signed a new contract with Bayern.

In fact quite a few also did the same with the club.

The MUFC job would be a poisoned chalice.

Fergie would still be trying to run the show. Just like Sir Matt did from upstairs in the boardroom.

I think Utd will be ok if Fergie can stay on until he is 90 and Giggs and Scholes play past 50.

The team that were 4th last season on this day finished 4th. That was Tottenham. City were 6th.

I know its a fact and that fantasy makes a better story but we need to educate these gullible souls.

City are 4th this season so will continue that trend.

City played well today and will win games playing a lot worst. 21 attemps loads of good football. For me we need a top striker and guess what Mancini has asked Cooke to sort it and he will arrive in Jan - pro active. 1 year in we now look a top 4 side and are getting better yes we need to score more goals but Balotelli has been injured and a striker is the next signing. If we keep with Mancini he will win us the league but as always City fans have cant wait. Today thosands booed their own team shame on you support the club - and remember where weve been for the last 30 years

Blue Tamsie
============
You are a true blue. I do not get this fans. You do not have the likes of Essien in your team and you want the DM to throw themselves forward.

You do not have a Champions League spot and you now want to throw the opportunity away for some blind attacking football. Until we have a defensive midfielder that can turn defense into attack, we have to focus on strengthening our weaknesses.

Why do they not write their preferred squad list and stop blabbing? So much talking no criticism.

That's an absurd comment! You're ahead of us by 3 points and we have the Champions League to contend with as well, not mickey mouse Europe where you field a reserve team! And anyway, I would much rather watch good open football week in week out than the utter dross your lot are serving up!

And I am aware how many times Italy have won the world cup!!!!!!!! I was on about their most current attempt! Pathetic display of negative tactics and got taught a lesson by much LESSER footballing nations! Keep this up and we will be past you in no time, while actually being entertained in the process.

Taking Tevez off and bringing on Barry when needing for a goal is a new level of ridiculousness! Boring City, boring boring boring...

I have one word for you. Arsenal. I hope that they meet you in the CL and put you in your place, for the zillionth time, with their carling cup side, at white hart lane.
Get out of the shadow of Arsenal first before you start commenting about other teams. Spurs fans should hide their tails and stay quiet as long as Wenger is at Arsenal..
