Vital Manchester City new recruit, italia7482 sent us the following article.

First of all, I am a Manchester City fanatic with blue blood running through my veins, as it does with so many of my fellow blues, however in my opinion herein lays the problem.

We are so passionate and so committed to this club that days like today (Sunday 21 December) are so hard to bear. I was happy to have Mark Hughes as our manager (his red links bothered me no more than his Chelsea or Barcelona one), but in my opinion, his time has run out.

It is unimportant if the players are not playing for him, or he cannot get them to perform the way he wants. A shameful drop into the relegation zone has ensued, (and were we not so long ago talking of the players we would buy to help improve our chances of a place in the Champions League), we now talk of players to save us from relegation. How different a few months in football make?

This business (Gary Cooks words) of our football club (my words), is in dire depression. There is an almost palpable feeling of sick, disgust and general deep depression sweeping through my brother and sister blues tonight. The blame must lie at the feet of the manager. He is the one person who motivates our team – it is he who decides the tactics and the formations – it is he who stands by the results, or lack of them.

I despise the constant changing of managers but I despise RELEGATION even more!

Goodbye Mr Hughes and no thanks for the memories.
