    I think City need somebody in midfield in the Fernadiho role. Rodri is the obvious choice but he will need to move up a gear at least. Gungdogan does not fill the same role.. I just wonder if he will use Stones in that role and partner Dias with Laporte but Stone does not have the same vision or energy level for the game but maybe a new plan is about to be launched!!!!

    Just trying to guess what Pep has planned, he knows now….I do not!!!!

    Two of my Grandchildren, both girls and city fans, bought me a lovelocks present to day for my 87th knowing I will not be attending next season. This is a guided tour inside City stadium, something I have never done although been in the stadium since it was open. Really looking forward to it,

    Is it true Kane has agreed personal terms with City, is he allowed to even speak to them!

    I suppose i will get over it in time, IF, he keeps fit and scores goals like Augerro. What concerns me now…who is going in P/e because no way will be paying that in cash. Thecandidates

    Laporte….Hope not, too good to let go
    Sterling. Hope not, not my favourite but believe he will do well next season
    Bernado….Hope not we have nobody else who can fill as many roles
    Mahrez…maybe, but stated he does not want to go anywhere
    Zinchenko..maybe
    Mendy…yes

    All will be revealed in the next week I believe, just hope we have made right decision

    My two granddaughters finally took me on the City tour. It was interesting and nice t0 see the inside of the stadium where the players train and change. managed some nice photo’s with the girls as well Looked at the new pitch, which has not been played on yet and it looks amazing, supposed to last 11 years depending on number of games played. Visited the shop afterwards but everything was too expensive and in my view not value for money because I think the quality needs to be improved. Plenty of people buying so somebody has money. In our small group people from Burma, Taiwan and ARSENAL!!!!!

    Brian, I expect the Arsenal fans were there to compare grounds, I would think theirs is probably the better ground, although the cupboard with all the shiny things in probably confused themπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜„β€¦β€¦β€¦..Pagan

    Pagan…it cannot be much better than what I have seen, however, the best part of the City facility is not in the Etihad stadium but across the road in the Academy building and where they have 16 pitches including a full size one where EDS/Women play and seats about 8K I think..it is a remarkable complex and the gym facilities are fantastic. the ones in the Stadium are just pre match warm up areas, and medical rooms, for visitors as well. I guess all the new stadiums have improved over the last 5/10 years, Everton next in line, which looks impressive as a stand alone ground. The good thing City have is it is all very much together for all the teams and administration.. I do not miss Maine Rd, it was sad on the last day and I shed a tear but when I think back at standing in the Kippax on cold wet winter games, the new stadiums have it for me.many years ago I used to work in a Cotton Mill, now demolished in the immediate vicinity of the ground and I can still clearly remember climbing the turret Tower at the Mill and looking across in the direction of where the ground is now, The Gas works was the Locator and that is still there but all the terraces house have almost goneand new ones in place plus other notable amenities like the Velodrome and Athletics ground next to the City shop. The area has changed significantly, in part, due to City support with Manchester on affordable houses, a term I always find odd because you have to afford them to be in them!!!
    As to Cups/Silverwear,,,we have some catching up to do but I think we have made a start, nothing comes overnight and at one stage Arsenal had to catch up with Preston, Huddersfield etc. Ha-ha who said the good old days playing in knickerbockers and the ref in formal suit and tie!!

    Just watched the City v Preston pre season warm up game. 2-0. City started with Dias, Ake Fernandinho, cancello, mendy and Mahrez the rest filled with Eds Players.. HT and 10 changes all EDS players on now. Goalkeeper took a bad injury, hope it is not as serious as it looked, but medics on pitch over 10 minutes. Sandler and McAtee I thought stand out players, very promising for City Fernandinho..what a player at his age and mixing it with the youngsters who were quicker but not smarter!!

    Just watched City’s second pre season game against Barnsley. Another good performance from the youngsters, Liked Sandler at CB and Gomez in midfield. Of the seniors Ake, Zinchenko,(what little time he had}, Cancello Mahrez excellent and of course Fernandinho who always appears at danger moments and deals with it. The youngsters did tire and they were bundled off the ball a little too easily by tougher opponents but always fought back..a good sign.
