City's atmosphere is absolutely shocking.

Like a morgue.
There's no away fans doesn't help.

Anyway ****ing shambles. Yaya needs to just **** off to PSG and have done with it, he's an embarrassment to the club. Fernandinho has been dreadful since the World Cup.

We never lost a home European game under Mancini, FACT. (In fact we have only done that under Hughes). Last season we beat CSKA home and away. We've gone backwards now.

Pellegrini never admits he or the players are wrong tho. Every post match interview he just pretends he doesnt understand the question or jus changes the subject! He was asked whether he agreed tht yaya toure's sending off was very unprofessional and indicative of the teams performance and instead just started rambling on about fernandinho's red card!

Yeah, he's been quite some distance off from his level last season, but I feel a lot of that has to do with what happened in the WC in that Germany game. He's probably still mentally scarred from that defeat and no matter what we fans think, all the pressure that these guys go through and to suffer a defeat like that on such a stage may leave some players scarred to the point where they're never the same again. He's one of those struggling to return to his pre-WC form from that Brazil team and I think that may have a lot to do with it actually, him being so poor up to now this season.

Bye bye Pelle.
Who will replace him?

I guess they will try to get Simeone but will he go there and leave his beloved Atletico. Sure it could be a new challenge and interesting prospect as there will be more money and it will be difficult to keep challenging against the Real/Barca in spain but there are reasons to not go to Man City either.

im just saying his time is up because realistically Man City are a powerhouse club these days and not doing well in the Champs League is a big failure. Especially not making it out of the group and playing shit football in the EPL as well. Thats an automatic sack, if it continues like this wouldnt be surprised if Pelle got sacked in the next month or two max.

Replacement? Theyve got the funds and the world class players, wouldnt be hard getting a top class manager.. Klopp, Simeone.. Someone younger than 60 :)

the fact Pellegrini didnt even know last season against Bayern that another goal would of got them top place in the group should of been the indicator needed that he is a fossil and not the right man for the job! absolute joke

Moyes would probably do better than Pelle.

He has done better than LvG at United for now and LvG has spent shit loads more than Moyes.

well Moyes is too superior for United, we are not in europe anymore, and maybe will not be for five- six seasons. He should join super club called Arsenal.

Just stating facts.. No need to start hating..

Moyes had 17pts and even had the burden of playing in the UCL as well. LvG has only EPL to focus on + spent 3 times the amount Moyes spent and has how many points in EPL? 13. :howler:

Plus you blame Moyes for not being in europe but the team that he inherited was destined for disaster and who left that team? The one and only SAF, who knew what was coming and left on a high, but had he stayed one more year his side would have been exposed just as it was under Moyes.. He basically jumped ship and threw Moyes under the bus.

Moyes doesn't know how to get teams to win, so no he would not be better than Pellegrini.

We CAN still qualify from this group if we beat Roma and Munich, as unlikely as it sounds. Need CSKA to draw or lose one of their last 2 games as well though. The fact is I'd be embarrassed if we managed to make it out of the group.

I don't think Pellegrini would be sacked mid-season that is just folly, but if we don't win the league or at least put up a reasonable title defence then I can see him going at the end of the season. Who'll come in I don't know, based on the season they're having maybe it is time for Klopp to move on from Dortmund while his star still shines. However don't rule out us promoting Vieira.

Preposterously we are through. 2-0 win in Rome, CSKA lose to Bayern. Nasri and Zabaleta with the goals. We looked a lot better in Europe playing one up front. The Two Fernas doing the job in midfield with Milner. Demichelis was solid as was Hart. Looks like Yaya's suspension actually helped us out.

We've had the bad form behind us now, and now we go into February with a clean slate.

Fossil man is just calm under the pressure. He doesn't need to admit his mistakes or call out the players in public.

Some idiots just call for heads every week the team loses and then go around giving head the next week the team wins.

Absolute joke is what Pellegrini has done since he arrived at City. I wonder how much the media would be sucking his cock if it was Mourinho instead.
