It’s boarding passes and passports at the ready as dapper City gaffer Roberto Mancini prepares to offload any players not up for the fight at Manchester City…
Shay Given, Emmanuel Adebayor and Robinho have already publicly white flagged it and regard themselves above fighting for a first team place at resurgent City.

Roque Santa Cruz, as reported here earlier could take the total departures from SportCity this summer towards the 20 mark.
In other news, the big Ecuadorian junior striker Felipe Caicedo’s loan move to West Ham fell through last week and like the young Brazilian Jo, who was poor against Timisoara last week might yet find himself on board for City’s quest for glory this season.
