Man City planning massive clearout to make room for big money deals Manchester City are ready for a massive squad overhaul this season. The Daily Star Sunday says City will return to their big spending ways in the summer, though will adhere to UEFA's draconian financial fair play laws. They are planning to raise cash through sales and slash £50m from the wage bill. Mario Balotelli has already gone for almost £20m and the futures of Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez, Samir Nasri, Joleon Lescott, Micah Richards, Scott Sinclair and Maicon are all in doubt. In addition, Kolo Toure and two players out on loan – Roque Santa Cruz and Wayne Bridge – are out of contract. There could be other casualties, too. The message is loud and clear – stand by for a summer of stunning transfer activity at City.
Southampton v Man City, 17:30 Before their match with Liverpool the reigning champions hadn’t conceded a Premier League goal in four games, and a lot of the supporters at the Etihad for their 2-2 draw with Gerrard and co went away saying they Reds were the best team to visit that year, so it is clear the away team are in decent defensive form. The Saints only have two wins in their last ten games, and if 9/2 first goalscorer with Boylesports Edin Dzeko is firing they could have to settle for a difficult day and no points. Southampton players Luke Shaw, Nathaniel Clyne, Gaston Ramirez and Guly do Prado are all possibly out, while recent signing Vegard Forren awaits his debut. Manchester City will be bolstered by the return of brothers Yaya and Kolo Toure from the Africa Cup of Nations and both Vincent Kompany and Maicon could also be available.
Can Mancini retain his job? by Sunday Oliseh 03/04/2012, 09:49 Roberto Mancini, manager of the world’s richest club, Manchester City, is definitely having sleepless nights these days! Why? His job and future as manager of this, now world renowned club, is threatened to say the least! Manchester City lie second in the Premier League, 5 points behind eternal Rivals Manchester United. Thanks to their 3-3 home draw vs. Sunderland whilst Manchester United came off at Blackburn with a 0-2 victory. Who could have thought this possible just a few months ago when City lead the pack, at one point with as much as 9 points! Man City is arguably littered with world class players, bought expensively and in large numbers. The players who sit on the bench of this team are easily regulars in most teams around the world today. Sami Nasri (ex Arsenal) Carlos Tevez, Dzeko just to name a few! It boasts of talented players like Silva, Ballotelli, Yaya Toure, Kolo Toure, Sami Nasri , Gareth Barry, Carlos Tevez, Edin Dzeko and ...
Μanchester City-Reading Tactical Analysis Man City snatched a controversial winner in stoppage time over a determined Reading side who arrived at the Etihad and parked the bus. Both sides showed a number of changes from recent games. Vincent Kompany made the bench following his return from a groin injury, enabling Kolo Toure to start. With Gael Clichy out injured, Dutch youngster Karim Rekik started at left back. Gareth Barry was recalled following his suspension and partnered Javi Garcia, giving Toure license to push further upfield. Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez hoped to extend their record of Man City always winning when the two begin a game together. Man City used a 4-2-3-1 formation. Reading boss Brian McDermott rang the defensive changes following the heavy home defeat to Arsenal. Only Adrian Mariappa survived from that game with Chris Gunter, Alex Pearce and Ian Harte all recalled. The Royals lined up in a 4-5-1 which would become an increasingly defensive formation as the game wore on with Pav . ...

Man United vs Man City- Review It was Derby Day in Manchester as the Noisy Neighbours were on a 37 game unbeaten run at home and trailed the Red devils by 3 points. City had a stronghold of possession in the opening minutes of the game but were blanked out by a classic counter attack started by Ashley Young. He played a pass to Robin Van Persie and continued his run. Van Persie helped the ball into Young’s run with his chest, sending him darting down a clear flank. Young played the ball to Rooney at the edge of the penalty area and he, surrounded by three City defenders, scuffed a shot to into Joe Harts goal, leaving the keeper wrong footed. Problems only grew for City as Captain Vincent Kompany was forced off the field with a troubled groin, and was replaced by Kolo Toure, who apparently was not good enough to be in City’s Champions League squad. He handed the armband to Pablo Zabaleta. Things didn’t get any better though for City as a swift cross from Rafael was met by an unmarked Wayne Rooney, wh ...
The last time Man City played 3-5-2 they lost against Borussia Dortmund.however,today the got key and mobile guys at the back, zabaleta,nastijic,Maicon and Zabaleta are far much beta and attack minded than Micah Richards en Kolo Toure.

Teko Modise recently made headlines for being well-paid at Sundowns, at less that R5 million a year before tax. Here's trivia to put that in context. Of the top 10 highest paid African footballers not one is from Mzantsi. 1. Samuel E'too in Russia (R200 million a year AFTER TAX) 2. Yaya Toure, Manchester City (R150m) 3. Didier Drogba in China (R130m) 4. Seydou Keita in China (R120m) 5. Emmanuel Adebayor, Hotspurs (R100m) 6. Kolo Toure, Man City (R60m) 7. Fred Kanoute in China (R60m) 8. Chris Samba in Russia (R55m) 9. Michael Essien, Real Madrid (R50m) 10. Mikel Obi, Chelsea (R45m). How's that for "Soccer's Mr Big Bucks" Teko, as our media call him?

Kolo Toure edges closer to Man City exit, rumours are he is heading to Jenny Craig to front up their new campaign
Football Opinion: It's still early days but I can say this: 1) Liverpool has one *** a talented kid in Raheem Sterling who gave veteran Kolo Toure a torrid team. In the same breath, Martin Skrtel must have been a Man City fan in his childhood. The way he gifted Tevez an easy goal smacks of a previous 'M-Pesa' transaction between Skrtel and Mancini. 2) Van Persie showed his class with a sublime goal but it was sad for any football fan to see that deep gash in Rooney's leg. 3) As RVP did that, Arsenal strikers were firing blanks. Clearly, firepower is needed upfront (Llorente?). The only positive from the two drab draws is the Steve Bould factor, defensive mentality. Song not missed at all but RVP clearly a big miss. 4) Man City from the two games so far look very ordinary. One hit wonder? Or is it 'One night stand'? 5) Chelsea are on a roll. This to me is the team to beat. Eden Hazard is already a super bargain, with 6 assists and one goal so far in 3 games. 6) Barcelona will always have their way. When t ...
Is Arsenal FC a feeder team to the big clubs of Europe? Henry to Barca; Ashley Cole to Chelsea; Fabregas to Barca; Nasri, Adebayor and Kolo Toure to Man City; now, possibly, Van Persie to Man U. No wonder they haven't won a trophy in the past seven seasons.

Going back to Man City, they should be looking to offload Kolarov, Bridge, Adebayor, Milner, Santa Cruz, Kolo Toure, Dzeko and Tevez.
Arsenal hasnt won a trophy 4 7years. I agree. However,i wana advise players who wana leave d club to make up their mind n just leave. No need draggin d issue n generating acrimony.

What has become of Kolo Toure? Adebayo has just come back to what he used to be b4 d Etihad switch. RVP,make up ur mind. If u wana leave,leave. If u wana stay,stay! Dnt incure d wrath of Le proffeseur!

Arsene Wenger fears that Man City - who have already tempted Nasri,Clichy,Kolo Toure and Adebayor,could be back for more of his players
City to offer Van Persie pounds 210k a week Spanish source AS is reporting that Man City are lining up a big money summer move for Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie as Real Madrid set their sights on Etihad Stadium forward Sergio Aguero. Roberto Mancini’s side are ready to offer the Gunners skipper a salary of as much £210k a week in an attempt to lure the Dutchman away from the North London club this summer. The 28 year old has been in outstanding form over the past two seasons and Arsene Wenger has heavily relied on the striker and can ill afford to lose the former Feyenoord man. Van Persie will have just a year to run on his current contact come the end of the season and Wenger will be looking to get his skipper to put to paper on a new deal as soon as possible to avoid losing such a hugely important first team player at the end of the season. Arsenal are beginning to get used to advances from Man City having lost the likes of Kolo Toure, Emmanuel Adebayor, Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri to the big spen ...
