its hard to be success like us united... they will never be greater than us...
i've heard that there is more blue fans than red fans manchester..
but our fame is at the top they--- bottom.

they might take place in ucl.. but will end up like chelski for sure..
they have funds.. they can buy any players they wanted, but there is no
players who dreamed to play at man city.. itll will take alot of times..
they need to filled their musuem with something.. then itll attract the
quality players like Kaka. Ronaldinho. and etc... Maybe robinho joined
them because madrid doesnt want him to joined chelski .. reasoned
might doesnt wanna meet him at UCL so they got better price..
Robinho might wanna joined chelski by using man city as a stair..

Who knows?

City Back In For Henry
http://www.goal.com/en/Articolo.aspx?ContenutoId=900037

Reports from England indicate that Manchester City are preparing a January swoop for Barcelona misfit Thierry Henry...

According to the Daily Mail, City manager Mark Hughes has highlighted Henry as the answer to his team's consistency problems in the final third.

The Sky Blues fell victim to a legendary Liverpool comeback at the weekend, losing 3-2 to Rafael Benitez's side after holding a two-goal advantage at half-time.

City were among the front-runners for Henry's signature early in the summer, but no move eventuated as then-owner Thaksin Shinawatra was more concerned with trying to lure Ronaldinho to Eastlands.

But with the Citizens' striking options looking somewhat lean given Valeri Bojinov's injury problems and Jo's inexperience, Hughes is desperate to sign a proven goalscorer who will complement the squad's considerable creative options.

While Henry may be 30 years of age, there is little doubt that a pairing of he and Robinho would strike fear into the hearts of most defenders.

And with the backing of Abu Dhabi United Group, City will have no problem affording whatever price-tag Barca might place upon the former Juventus player.

Hughes is also thought to be after a goalkeeper, as current back-up Kasper Schmeichel is likely to leave in January.

City announce boardroom revamp
http://www.teamtalk.com/football/story/0,16368,2483_4328919,00.html

Manchester City announced a restructuring of the boardroom on Monday night, with long-serving director Brian Bodek stepping down at Eastlands



Once the Abu Dhabi-based consortium completed their takeover, making City the richest club in the world, it was inevitable there would be changes.

Bodek's exit marks the final severing of official ties with the men who controlled the Blues prior to Thaksin Shinawatra's takeover last year.

Dr Thaksin's stake has now been reduced to 10 per cent, although he will still have two representatives on the board in Taweesuk 'Jack' Srisumrid and Victor Restis.

Also brought in to work alongside executive chairman Garry Cook are Simon Pearce, a trusted business and communications advisor to the Abu Dhabi government and a key player in the recent buyout, and Martin Edelman, who has knowledge of takeovers after being with the Miami Dolphins NFL franchise in similar circumstances.

Edelman's legal expertise is also in demand. However club officials have stressed he is not providing advice on the acquisition of property in and around the Sportcity complex.

City have refused to say whether there will be further additions to the board, although it is believed that is the intention.

The Blues hierarchy have successfully quelled the rampant rumours of the cash to be lavished on Mark Hughes' squad, insisting they will take a long-term approach.

New arrivals are expected in January but at this stage it seems doubtful an influx of signings will be enough to get City into Champions League slots by the end of the season.

will be interesting to see who they actually get....they think it's so easy to get great players with just pure cash incentives, not every player is motivated totally by cash and also many players want to play for certain clubs in certain countries.
if it were that easy chelski would have signed every major player in the world before city arrived and it was never that simple. the great thing about them spending this cash is that you know they are going to end with a load of mercenaries in it for the cash with no sense of loyalty and even with all the cash it's not going to be all good times. in the long term think it will lift them to another level, but the greatest and biggest team in the world...keep dreaming on
