O.k heres hoping we don't go down, but it aint looking good right now. Who do you think Keegan should be playing to keep us up? If we do drop who will leave? And while I'm at it, who's your favourite player?

I think:

Keeper - Arason. (James is too dodgy right now, the last thing we need)

Defense - Sun Ji Hai (Runs all day) Dunne (gives 110%)
----------- Distin (Usually solid enough) Tarnat (Great passer)

Midfield - WrightPhillips (best player this season) Barton (Determined)
----------- Tiatto (aggresive) Macca (Can still create)

Forwards - Fowler (does his best) Macken (works for the team)

Subs: James, Wiekens, Reyna, Anelka, Bosvelt

I'd drop Anelka for not working hard enough. Sibierski for missing too many chances. Sinclair for doing nothing.

If we drop I think Anelka goes 1st. Wright Phillips next, then Tarnat, and possibly Distin.

My player of the season: Shaun Wright Phillips.

rob rob rob ive been hoping nobody would open a thread like this but hey, if you think that team will play on saturday you have got another thing coming, sun ji isnt fit to wear the city shirt he may run all day but so do headless chickens! Arason is no where near as good as james! come and watch the reserves every week in hyde and you will see. and how can you not play anelka hes are top goal scorer! as for the outlook on our futre id pinned all my hopes on blackburns poor form but thats gone out of the window, saturday is definetly touch and go win or draw and we will stay up lose and i fear yet another false dawn and back down to division 1, i would think barton is a sure starter after the interview he gave in the paper today, and they have all been in training today on there day off so all is not lossed! ( now youve got me started)

I know there is no chance of that squad playing but it's who i'd choose. We should cash Anelka in. He has all the attributes to an amazing striker, he fast, powerful, a good finisher but he's too lazy. James is a calamity, but Weaver will be coming back soon. I like Sun Ji Hai, defensively he isn't the best but he can go forward and links up well. I don't watch the reserves play and I rarely see the 1st team live, but from what i've seen i'd rather have Sun in the team than Van Buyten or Bishoff. I really think a solid player like Wiekens is needed either in defense or midfield, somebody who will grit there teeth and play hard without getting sent off.

Whos been your biggest dissapointment this season? Mine has to be Sinclair, he works hard but just doesn't gel with anyone.

i'd like to wish man city all the luck in the world on their relegation quest. i really hope they can do it. all the best boys.

let's face it, it's looking like a choice between leeds and man city for the last relegation spot. i think portsmouth and blackburn are have done just enough to stay up.

well wiekins and tiatto arent havening there contracts reniewed at the end of season so we can say good bye to them. Rob how can you even compare sun to bishoff he hasnt even started a game all season!!! and to say hes better than van buyton ( i had to read that twice). To be honest i dont think weaver will ever make it back to the number one jersey. Sinclair has been a real let down but from waht i hear as long as we stay up we should be getting de pedro from sociedad to play on the left next season.

At the moment it is definitly city or leeds but leeds play portsmouth on sunday!

Its no suprise its come to this, millions in debt, a new stadium they cant fill, players that wouldnt get a game in the Nationwide and one of the most hapless managaers in todays game....

it could only be citeh, second only to Spurs for having "knee jerk reactions"..

it will be a shame but its no more than you deserve, having ideas above your station is hazardous to your health, I would say citeh are gonna do a leeds but they dont have half the quality that leeds had and subsequently had to sell, apart from Anelka and at a push SWP who they gonna recoup millions for, Dunne lol...

so...

"To The Nationwide F*ck Off"

see you's in a few seasons!!

I was comparing them because they're both defenders, who would else could come in for Sun? I mentioned the 1st team regulars. I think if we go down Keegan will say goodbye.

Vannizzlefashizzal why do you make accusations like we never fill our stadium and were in loads of debt when you obviouslly havnt got a clue! stick to your stretford rangers! The reason why we are nothing like leeds is our "debt" was a loan taken out on the futre revenue created by the extra capcity on the new ground over a number of years. so infact unless we suddenly start having attendances of less than 32000 and we were getting that in divsion two i dont think were going to go bust in a hurry! and as for attendances over the last 4 games city have had a average capacity of 47105 97.98% (yeah dead empty)

so 4 games left starting with a must get something out of this game against leciester, then a home game against a champions league chasing newcastle and with our home form that does not sound encourging, which leaves boro away and last game against everton at home hopefully boro will rollover as there season is basiclly over but depending on results i could definitly see it going to the last game although we will no more after the weekend!
