    For the drop Im going to go for - Burnley, Portsmouth, Hull

    Wayne Bridge's ex asked Drogba to go down on her.






    So he fell to the floor like he'd been shot and rolled around clutching his ankle :whistling:



    Relegated - Pompey, Burnley, Wolves
    Next Manager sacked - Zola (well, not sacked, but he'll walk)
    Best Striker - Rooney (on current form, not sure if it'll last all season though)
    Top 4 at the end of the season - Will have a better idea after this weekend

    I would agree I think Zola will be the next to go and Mark Hughes will possibly take his job. I wasnt a fan of him at City but I think he'll do a good job at West Ham, he made Blackburn a very decent side with little money a few seasons ago.

    Relegated .......

    In order, for me, it would be

    Shrek
    Drogba
    Tevez
    Torres
    Anelka
    Defoe

    insomaniac - do you think man city are better of with mancini??

    I mean its not as if he pulling in the results and getting the best out of players....listening to the radio the other day alot people were calling and saying the standard of football is not as good as it was under hughes!

    Tevez in 3rd??? are you for real....

    surely Torres and Anelka are better strikers then him.......

    Tevez's headless chicken approach covers alot of his weaknesses as a striker

    I think he means current form. Torres injured we shall see at the weekend meant to be back, would put him down to bag a goal if ready to play.

    Depends what you mean by the standard of football, we are not conceding 3 goals a game which is always nice but we arent an all out attacking team either.

    I much preferred the Hughes style from a 'spectacle' viewpoint the games were always exciting with lots of goals but we were getting some silly results.

    Mancini is trying to make us more defensive but the last three games have been the dullest games ive seen all season, no attacking threat, no width, no spark. Mancini is trying to play his own style with players who are used to attacking. Its not going to work, Wayne Bridge cannot defend for toffee so when you tell him to stop bombing forward you might as well not have him on the pitch. Same for Micah Richards. In the summer ( if he;s still there) Mancini might buy a box to box midfielder and a left and right back and we will b ein a lot better shape.

    What annoys me the most is he refuses to play Stevie Ireland and rarely play SWP and then moans we arent pushing forward ! he plays with three defensive midfielders and moans we hav eno width !!!

    Tevez is in the form of his life at the moment, if by 'headless chicken' you mean 'covers a lot of ground' then yes he does, he goes at defenders and the keepers and chases lost balls, its that type of grit and determination that has got him so many goals this season, it is not a weakness. I wish we had five tevez and 0 Adebayors.

    True....he reminds of young/slim rafa.....a very negative manager whose first aim is not to lose a game rather than win the game!

    Steven Ireland has great potential and would love to him managed by Fergie....

    SWP for me is a bit hit 'n' miss.....depending on his mood he can be very effective or a complete waste...kind of like nani

    I think steven ireland might go but he wont be going to Stretford, SWP is frustrating. To say the least.

    Even as a Liverpool supporter, David Villa is a better finisher imo, but Torres is the better all-round footballer.

    People are going on about Rooney now being one of the best in the World (let alone England), but I'm sure most Premier Lague defenders are more worried about facing Drogba and Torres than they are Rooney. Rooney is playing unbelievably well at the moment though.

    top four;
    Chelsea
    man ure
    arsenal
    liverpool

    bottom three;
    wigan
    burnley
    pompey


    Rooney best striker

    As an all rounder Rooney is without doubt the best striker in the world at the moment. no one tracks back, picks the ball up from midfield and has the total all round game as he has.

    I wouldn't class him as a striker though.....goal poachers like Van Nistelrooy, Van Basten, Fowler, Lineker, Inzaghi were/are true strikers . He's more of a forward than a striker, what with his tracking back, chasing the ball etc...... People have made comparisons between Rooney and Pele, and to be fair I think it's probably not too far from the truth, going on the style of Pele's play.
