Manchester City Season Preview
With Don Roberto of Bluewatch MCFC
Getting better with every game that we participate in, the results are not the key, but to build fitness levels and develop an understanding. The best thing about our pre-season tours was that 50% of our side were not present and yet we still produced the levels we did, and beat the likes of Arsenal with ease.
What to look forward to from your club this season
A title challenge and progress in domestic cup competitions to at least QF level. I am not saying we will win the title again, but we will definitely go the distance again and press someone to reach record hauls in order to snatch it from us.
What to worry about
Nothing. Not being big-headed or arrogant, but we now have no worries, we are not going to get relegated, we know we will see World Class players every week play for our club and the future is also looking bright with the quality of Academy lads coming through.
Where are you going to finish?
Top three, hopefully first again, but definitely in the top three along with Chelsea and United. We just have to be more consistent than those sides over the season and beat them when we meet.
Best/most outrageous transfer rumour
Most outrageous has been the van Persie one for me, He is a player who we don't need and I hope the club don't sign, not because he isn't a good player, as he is, but because of his age, injury record and the fact he has had one good scoring season in eight at Arsenal. We already have four more productive and better equipped strikers here.
Manager right man for the job?
2011 FA Cup Champions, 2012 Premier League Champions... what do you think?
Player to look out for?
Of those you know nothing about, I would say either Karim Rekik or Denis Suarez, both young lads might get a chance this season in the League Cup and FA Cup games, and hopefully also some Premiership experience if we run up the type of results we did last season. Of those you are aware of, Silva, Nasri and Aguero will all get better this season than they were last.
Dead wood you would get rid of?
I think we need to clear the decks and the likes of Adebayor, Santa Cruz, Guidetti, Weiss and Michael Johnson I would sell, and then loan out the likes of Boyata and Savic (if we can get a good back up centre half before the window closes).
Game of the season?
The 1-6 will take some beating, but to come from behind and score 2 goals against a dogged QPR side in the final 5 minutes to win the title will never be eclipsed, and that was a game no City fan will ever forget nor get tired of seeing. CHAMPIONS.
Best away day?
It was only 3-1, It was only 3-1, 30,000 empty seats, it was only 3-1, it was only 4-1, it was only 4-1, 40,000 empty seats, it was only 4-1, it was only 5-1, it was only 5-1, 50,000 empty seats it was only 5-1, it was only 6-1, it was only 6-1, 60,000 empty seats it was only 6-1, it should have been 10, it should have been 10, you lucky b@$t@rds it should have been 10.
How good are your pies?
Never try them, go to the game to watch the football, not have a 3 course meal.
Thank You Sheikh Mansour and ADUG for making City fans dreams come true
