With Newcastle rumoured to be getting a new owner and Tottenham now winning their games, Manchester City are now in the spotlight and the media truly has their knives out.
Speculation ranges from Mark Hughes’ future to player revolt to a January fire sale to a January spending spree to Mourinho being offered 15m / year (tell me how that’s not a bad deal) to take over from Hughes.
It’s ridiculous, we love to build them up when they’re doing a little bit well and we love to tear them a new one when they’re doing a wee bit bad. Manchester City are still the same team, albeit with defenders shot of confidence and with Robinho and SWP in the side providing fantastic creative / goal-scoring talent. A central midfielder worthy of the label and the defence getting it’s act together will see City challenging for Europe.
It was never that good for City, and it’s not as bad as it seems. Let’s hope the new owners aren’t as affected by the negative press as the Tottenham and Newcastle owners have shown themselves to be in recent months.
