Sensible outcome.

It will be interesting to find out who will be their new CEO.

Too bad that they may actually benefit from this in the end, with a decent CEO coming in.

Tevez stripped of Captaincy

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has confirmed that Carlos Tevez has been permanently stripped of the club captaincy.

Tevez's future was in doubt all summer after he revealed his unhappiness about life in Manchester.

Moves to Corinthians and Inter Milan failed to materialise and Tevez has now remained at the Etihad Stadium.

During the Tevez saga, which ran over into the new season, Vincent Kompany took the armband and the Belgian admitted he was unsure whether he would remain captain.

But now Mancini has confirmed that, even though Tevez is back in the squad, Kompany is officially the new City skipper.

"The captain is Vinny Kompany, The reason is simple - Carlos in the summer wanted to leave the club for family reasons," said Mancini.

"I respected his opinion to leave the club. But Carlos is here now, we didn't find any solution for him.

"He is a fantastic player for us because he can score 20 goals in one year - but I decided in the summer Vinny was the captain."

I think he'd have stood a better chance of keeping his job if he'd admitted it and apologised profusely (and immediately) for a lapse of judgement in an email intended to be private and sent while on holiday. As it was he just added insult to injury.

It serves him right.

And Man City should have sacked him sooner but perhaps there were legal issues that needed to be resolved.

He got a fair amount of positive press this week about his effectiveness at Man City. I don't know whether it's justified or simply his mates in the media helping him out with some positive spin as he desperately tried to keep his job.

If it is true then they may get someone less embarrassing but also less effective.

I suspect really it'll make f*ck all difference.

No I am fed up of looking at 80% of the threads & thinking that I am fed up of YOUR childish ramblings which always come back to race or sex & 99% of the time have nothing to do with football - now this made up personna might be interesting to you but I am beginning to find you offensive & a joke too far.

OK back to Man City

They're steam rolling teams, it's bloody impressive - where we're a bit toothless in front of goal they're sharks when they smell blood.

Whats scary is all players that are not starting, when they have a dip look at all the fresh players they can bring in.

One last thing, i saw Mancini as there weak link, they way he's change the way they play/evolved their game is impressive - kudos.

The fact that they can effectively 'drop' Dzeko after his incredible performance against Spurs and then have another forward bag a hat-trick in the next game shows the ridiculous strength and depth they have. UEFA's FFP rules cannot kick in soon enough. The only problem I see Mancini having is giving them all enough game time, other than that they are a force in every competition they are part off.

Well, yeah, probably not, they already have a star studded squad and all the money in world, guess I could take on the job at this point.

They've already got the squad now, so like the Mancs (utd) it will be fine tuning each year.

Sad to say we're so far behind both Manc teams, how on earth can we compete?

The thing is when we face them i think we'll give an good account of ourselves, it's the other teams who we should be beating (like Stoke) where we struggle, thats nothing new we've had the same problem since we last won the league.

I entirely agree.

Seriously though, spamming on this site is getting way out of control, especially (but not only) when its unfunny and way overused jokes about race or sex.

Getting more than tired of coming across pages of this drivel in all sorts of innocuous threads, especially in the footy section. Occasional friendly banter and "in jokes" are one thing, but when it turns into outright spam its detrimental to the site and we'd be stupid not to address that. So rein it in before it is reined in for you, please.

I'm not going to argue your general points, as you're obviously entitled to run the site in whatever way you wish, but surely 'unfunny' is purely subjective?

I personally find IRWT to be funny more often than not, and think his contributions to the forums serve as a welcome change to some of the more boring and 'meh' posts/posters whose contributions achieve very little in terms of entertainment/fun IMO.

If anyone found the tripe posted above that I just removed funny then they must have had a lobotomy.

Spam is spam. Its quite obvious what the topics of threads are, I'm not suggesting we're going to get militant about anything that deviates from those at all, but there is a limit and its getting breached in more and more threads of late by a select few posters. Which puts everyone else off and makes for a very dull forum in the long run.

I've asked the mod team to remove on sight anything they judge to be complete drivel in the footy section from now on until it gets under control. Yes, that is an entirely subjective judgement, but such is the nature of forum moderating.

I cant comment on the specific stuff you removed I was talking generally, but with regards to what you posted, your judgement is usually pretty accurate, so that's fair enough.

I'm inclined to agree with you on the off-topic stuff, it can indeed be frustrating sometimes when one notices new posts in a topic that is of interest, and then sees none of the new posts are actually about the topic

It's entirely possible that IRWT has gone a bit OTT with his antics lately, and it's fair enough if that needs to be calmed down a bit. I hope we can allow him to carry on being 'himself' though, within the context of the rules obviously, because i genuinely find him to be a highly entertaining (if a little unhinged) poster, most of the time.
