I think City haven't got that big name manager that players want to play for.  Mancini is a bit of a tool IMO.  Ancelloti is awesome.  I think they need someone like Acelloti/Mourinho/Guardiola to entice the players they are after.  They can easily outbid Utd, yet RVP came to Utd and if they fail to land Falcao this summer they are going to struggle again.  Last years signings have all been a big disappointment except for Nastasic who seems to have a lot of potential.

SAF himself said Chelsea will immediately be a title threat again if Mourinho goes back, so I think there's probably something in what you said.

I don't think Mancini will be there much longer honestly

Mancini has recently blamed the loss of the title on the club not getting the players he wanted.  To start shifting the blame on other people must mean he feels pressure on him about it.  To be fair had RVP gone to city then I bet it would be a lot closer title run in... with us maybe chasing them.

Iniesta is one of my favourite players.  He's awesome... I don't think he has a weakness in his game apart from being a bit of a short arse.  He's also a really nice humble person and he will most likely be a one club man... a player that just cannot be bought.  He turns up in the big games too.

easily my favorite player, watching him play is one of the biggest things that started drawing me to the game

i just love the role he has and the way he fills it

he's awesome

I'm sure it would be different if City had RVP but even still, he made some really weird choices. That whole 3 in the back experiment he wouldn't let go, even though his players hated it. Stuff like that, I just don't think he is the right guy to lead them anymore.

while we are at it:

would love to see the franchise system in european football, like the shit they have in the us with the nba.
i actually don't give a shit about the whole traditionbullcrap i want my team to win shit and not have a massiv long tradition in playing in the lowest league possible.

any other opinions?
What do you mean by franchise system? The whole player draft + no relegation + salary cap thing? Because if so, these things are precisely what hinders the development of MLS - or rather, it's because of them that the MLS isn't taken seriously.

Player draft + relegation go completely against the competitive nature of the league - you are not punished harshly enough for underperforming, and that alone shouldn't be happening in a serious league. Wigan fans last days of the season: "ok we're 17th, if we lose this game we're gonna go to the championship and it's gonna suck ass and we'll be depressed and shit". Seattle sounders fan: "doesn't matter if we are dead last, next year we'll have new players for free".

Obviously this is grossly oversimplified but hopefully you get the idea (also I have no idea if Seattle are last or something, it was just the first team that came into my mind).

Adam Johnson signs with Sunderland! Really excited to see him get consistent playing time, it wasn't going to happen at City. McClean + Johnson will be a pretty good winger duo.

Ah welp so much for that.

I know this is a little OT, but we are in OT...so deal with it

Can you explain to me how the American system works.

Can you ever lose your place in the league?

How does player recruitment work?

How do you get to join the league?  Or promoted to it?

Is there is a second tier / third tier like most soccer leagues?

Shit like this makes me sick.  It used to be a staple of the Italian league years ago, but it's everywhere now in every league.  Shit I even went to see my local team play (Fleetwood in Division 2) and it even happens there.

  • CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SEMI-FINAL DRAW

    SF2: Borussia Dortmund v Real Madrid


  • CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SEMI-FINAL DRAW

    SF1: Bayern Munich v Barcelona

    I predict a BM vs RM final as I don't think Messi is going to be fully fit.  With BM winning it... make your predictions now for bragging rights later.
