No they won't. It takes more than just star players to win the CL and Liverpool fans of all people should know that.

I'll say QF the max.

They'll probably go as far as Spurs did before meeting a similar fate - a tanking at the hands of Madrid or Barca.

shody1976

who?

Don't question Zlatan. Kriz will be lurking around here somewhere.

Seriously though grag, I think you've got a mite carried away here. Whilst City have undoubtedly put together a fantastic side, a midfield of Barry, De Jong and Toure is going to get completely outplayed up against Xavi, Iniesta and Messi. Depending on the draw and injuries, I think City could make the semi-finals, but could see them beating either Real or Barca at that point.

1st game of the season at home vs newly promoted Swansea was always going to end up in a hiding

Bolton did the same away to newly promoted QPR, much more difficult.

Therefore i say Bolton to win the champions Lea...... Oh wait :IN:

Citeh do have an incredible depth of talent in their squad to be fair and will do well this season up until all the egos fall out which i suspect will be by the end of October..

USE THE FORCE LUCAS
15-8-11, 22:55

This!

You can accumulate the best players in the world, but if you have a manager that doesn't have any tactical know-how whatsoever those players can only take you so far.

It's like having a boat without a captain at the helm.

I am expecting this to be Mancini's last season at Man City as he isn't going to have anywhere left to hide after failing once again to win the Premiership.

Being unable to overhaul the weakest Man United side for years was ridiculous in itself last season considering the players he had at his disposal.

Certainly one of the most inept managers in the Premiership for me, it's incredible that he has lasted so long.

If he was at a club like Fulham, West Brom, Wolves, Wigan etc.....they would be a nailed on certainty for relegation in my opinion.

I won't go into their benches although Barca's isn't exactly weak. Fabregas, Pedro, Adriano, Thiago etc.

City's bench is pretty damn impressive too mind, but as a whole squad, Barca's is better. No doubt about it in my mind.

And they have a better manager.

You could pick and choose from both.. You seem to prefer all Barca players yet for me many of citys are just as good, if not better.

Barca play top football, it makes people think all their players are ireplaceable but they are not.. Many of citys players could easly replace them.

Which ones? You seem desperate to steer clear of actually saying which ones.

Valdes is better than Hart. Alves is comfortably better than Richards. I think most people would pick Pique/Puyol over Kompany/Toure. Abidal ***** all over Clichy. Busquets and Mascherano are better than De Jong (this doesn't make De Jong a bad player). Xavi and Iniesta are on another level to the rest of the world so obviously they are better. Pedro and Sanchez are better than Johnson, comfortably. Villa is better than Aguero. And Messi is Messi.

I don't see what players you are talking about.

Swap Kompany and Pique and you cant really agrue with that.

Man City could have more strength in depth though as Barca don't have that big a squad and tend to use the same 13 or 14 players.

Best sqaud in the world.. even better than Barca

Yet can they play as good as barca.. probably not

You know it's not about having the best squad or players ..... it's about having the best team, mentality, fighting spirit, willingness to work hard and so on.

Just look at United - not the best players or squad, but they never accept defeat and their strong mentality and self belief makes it so hard to beat them.

Or let's look at Barcelona - having a fantastic squad and incredible players and being the best side at keeping posession and moving the ball around and playing the best attacking football therefor, doesn't stop them from working hard and playing as a team.

Does Man City have those traits ?? I think they don't. Let's remind, how depended they were on Tevez, they lost their grit and fighting spirit with Carlos missing. They are just a bunch of great players, nothing more nothing less. Not a team !!!!

15-8-11, 23:18
Which ones? You seem desperate to steer clear of actually saying which ones.

Valdes is better than Hart. Alves is comfortably better than Richards. I think most people would pick Pique/Puyol over Kompany/Toure. Abidal ***** all over Clichy. Busquets and Mascherano are better than De Jong (this doesn't make De Jong a bad player). Xavi and Iniesta are on another level to the rest of the world so obviously they are better. Pedro and Sanchez are better than Johnson, comfortably. Villa is better than Aguero. And Messi is Messi.

I don't see what players you are talking about.

Im not staying clear of anything.. Many of there players are like for like.

Only Xavi and messi stand out IMO

I think its up for debate... and we could debate all night. Barca have fantastic players but so do City.

You could pick and choose from both.. You seem to prefer all Barca players yet for me many of citys are just as good, if not better.

Barca play top football, it makes people think all their players are ireplaceable but they are not.. Many of citys players could easly replace them.

Which City players are better than their Barcelona counterparts? Compare both starting 11's:

City

Hart

Lescott
Kompany
Clichy
Richards

Toure
Barry
De Jong

Silva
Dzeko
Aguero

Barca

Valdez

Puyol
Piqu
Abidal
Alves

Xavi
Iniesta
Busquets

Messi
Pedro
Villa

Tell me where City have the better players.

Barca play great football but their players par Messi and Xavi are no better than what City have.

We disagree.

This is everything in a nutshell.

Barca play great football because it is instilled in them to do so by their manager and has been a way of life at the club since forever.

Despite City having players of similar ability on the whole, they won't be able to emulate Barcelona until the owner understands the importance of having a competent manager.

It's ironic that City are giving Mancini too long, and Abramovich doesn't give his appointments long enough...yet both clubs are trying to achieve the same thing.

It's all about identifying the right horse and then backing him..

I've been out all evening and just come in, saw and read the report on the City match and thought, I bet loads of people will be crying about how they are going to win everything and we need better players blah blah blah.

Already first thing I saw was this, I've not read any posts yet but, first game of the season against Swansea at home.Yes they won, Aguero is a good player we've all known this for ages. But we saw it last year, City will slip up a lot, as will every other team. Lets stop worrying about what other teams do and what players they have until we play them, until then, if we win most of / all of our games, what do we have to worry about? Think of it that way.

We will have to agree to disagree on that, but it's all about opinions of course!

Paying all that money for a defensive midfielder and then playing him at centre half seems a touch bizarre to me.

Although Mascherano is a quality defensive midfielder, his limited technical ability (passing, heading, ball control etc) made me raise my eyebrows when I heard Barca wanted him.

Granted, he is excellent in the tackle and breaks up play well though....but that's about it.

They are going to push the league this year but they won't win it with Mancini in charge. He is not adventurous enough. He won't try to win a 0-0 game. He will bring a defender on to shore up a 1-0 instead of pushing for 2-0/3-0.

As for youre question... If city sign Nasri, hes just as good as iniesta IMO

You could debate that Villa or Pedro are as good as Aguero or Tevez. In this case, I think Tevez is better than all of them.

And now you're trying to tell me that Nasri, who City haven't even signed yet, is better than Iniesta? He's not even better than Silva. And once again you dodge my question. Good night Graggy.

If it is a choice of ManU or ManC winning the prem then give me ManC anyday.

But it is all academic as Liverpool are going to win the Premiership...City Second

During the Glory years and since, I've always liked City. They were never a real threat to us and we shared something in common = a deep hatred for Utd:D

as the song goes...

one, two, three

after me

We 'ate Notting'am Forest
We 'ate Everton too
We 'ate Man United
But Liverpool WE LUV YOU

altogether now...

:D


City fans must be feeling like they found that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Hope they taste some success but second to us of course. We need to make sure the fire in our bellies is stronger than anyone else

The discussion has arrived at a point where Man City have better players than Barcelona. Anything but a CL win for Man City should result in sacking of everybody connected to the club.

Wow you lot are an envious bunch. And no, I'm not a MC fan, LFC through and through. Nobody ever had a problem with them when they were little ol' harmless Man City.

Meanwhile we're clamoring for Juan Mata, (heard pleads of Aguero nonstop), etc. We've spent a fair penny in this transfer window. How come it's fine when we do it, but when they do it, its looked upon as obscene.

And spare me with the 'they don't deserve it' nonsense. It makes you sound like a spoiled child. Who then 'deserves it'? Its 2011 not 1981. History or lackthereof shouldn't mean a thing.

Fact of the matter is if John Henry dropped 50 mil on Hulk we'd all hit the roof and rightfully so. This childish bellyaching really needs to stop. It makes us look pathetic and we're better than that.

Lets just stop the hypocrisy. If anything, this just solidifies the EPL as the best league in the world and will make it all the more sweeter when we finally get #19.

City schmity. As we speak, I'm sure Kenny's planning how to neutralise Aguero and make City look ordinary.

Give it a few weeks and the spoilt brat, hissy fitting prima donnas will start infighting.

And Mancini reminds me not of a headmaster, but the teacher at school who wanted to be liked but who none of the kids respected. I still expect him to be gone by Christmas. ;)
