It's silly spending. It's like Mancini just wrote out a dream team and said I'm having that.

thats 20 odd players on huge money. there wage bill must be horrific.

The sad thing is that just before the Sheikh came in they were getting quite a reputation for some fantastic young players none of them even get a look in nowadays.

When i typed that I wondered if Michael Johnson had dragged himself away from Greggs and yes apparently he signed for Leicester for a year, I missed that.

Surprised no one has taken a punt on Onuoha

Did a decent job at Sunderland last year and cant imagine his wages are too high

Onuaha is quality saw him a few times for Sunderland last year.

I think JAgielka will go to Arsenal and Everton will get him on loan for a year.

I think the likes of VIlla/everton/Sunderland are all waiting for Cities cast offs !!!

The thing is if a young player starts getting a reputation, City are always in on the act. I suppose its up to us to spot them earlier than that. Before they blow up. Easier said than done. They don't seem willing to sell their players to their big club rivals either. I'm starting to despise them.

People have spoken about wage caps and suchlike, but what about simply a limit of how many players each club can sign within a year or within a transfer window?

Then City would be free to spend their cash, but would have to actually stick to buying who they actually want, instead of just anyone who they dont want their rivals to get.

you'd have thought the 25 man squad limit in the PL would actually deter some of these players either willing to be there still or signing in the first place, clearly money motivates more than game time for most!

The FFP rule coming into effect simply must come in and be enforced properly sadly with the charlatans and idiots running our game it'll never work properly.

If you look at the squad that PTP posted, 20 of those players will regularly be involved (assuming they get Nasri) and there's 5 spaces left for the rest of the squad or for new signings.

25 is still a big squad.

I know mate, but you'd expect players to at some point think "is this good for my career" problem is always the money they'll offer to get players in - I mean the wages they must be paying out to Bridge, Adebayor and Santa Cruz alone must be huge.

FFP simply has to be enforced and properly (I'm sure it won't be though!)

Are UEFA investigating that stadium name thingy? The surely must be? If they get slammed on that one, surely they must sell half their squad?

400M price they paid apparently includes not only stadium naming rights but also shirt sponsorship and development on the new training grounds as well as significant investment into local community redevelopment.

I think they found the loophole of how to pump the money into a club without getting caught not that I think that UEFA would enforce it even if they would found enough evidence to revoke their license.

I can't see players wages being a problem at all in the future. They will just let a sponsor pay the players higher wages for image rights etc like Man U and Nike trying to do with Sneijder. The sponsor may even pay a part of the transfer fee like they already do in South America.

Garry Cook welcomes Samir Nasri: "How are you, brother?"

Also comforting to know that footballers also have to do the embarrassing walk through the office on their first day.

Pretty much.

I hated his condescending comment yesterday when he gave a friendly piece of advice to Arsenal fans that they should trust Arsene as he's a top manager and will get it right again..

Depressing really but I hope they win the league (if we can't obviously). They should be winning the league with the money they've spent, the firepower they have...so any successes they might have would be more hollow even than Chelsea's success. And it would get right up United's nose, so I can handle it. It means nothing really.

City winning it hinges on Mancini's mentality in games against the top 4/6.

If he can move from his default setting of being defensive and sometimes settling for a draw, away from home, then they should win it.

Be interesting to see how they approach the game tomorrow
