    Bony isn’t even second choice pal.
    Kelechi Iheanacho is Pellagrini’s first choice along with Aguero. Pellegrin has already stated that the Nigerian wonder kid is the future of man city pushing Bony further down the pecking order.
    Swansea enquired last week to his availability and were not not back so why would we ??

    We wouldn’t be able to spend the money we are spending if it wasn’t for the way Mike Ashley has run the club. I can’t wait to see the squad at the start of next season.

    Bony has played around twice the amount of minutes as Iheanacho, u sure he isn’t second choice?

    Sissoko is able to move the whole team higher up the pitch simply by running with the ball. That in itself should not be underestimated.

    I think ur trying a little too hard son the best at getting a reaction are a little more subtle

    Only going on what Manuel said at the weekend buddy. His contract is in dispute at the moment because of him having 2 agents. Pellegrini said he didn’t want to lose the young starlet as he’s the future of Man city……..hence where does that leave Bony with Aguero there as well

    What are you basing that on?

    In all the games Aguero missed, the young kid wasnt chosen ahead of Bony once. Bony started most, or has been first choice off the bench when they have both been on the bench together.

    No WWSBRD, it’s you that can’t admit you were wrong. Were you one of the ‘Pardew out’ supporters?

    Basing it on what the Man city manager said mate at the weekend after the palace game. I would say he knows a bit more about the squad then any of us on here lol !!

    Mike

    If we stay up, finish this window off as it seems to be going, then i think the squad in August will be close to the best we have had.

    Still think Sissoko will leave in the summer for his CL dreams but is we get 20+m for him and reinvest then fair enough. I think we are likely to reinvest now more than previously as McClaren looks like being more trusted with money than Pardew.

    I think you were trying to troll but i agree with you 🙂

    Id imagine they are the present

    doesn’t berohino (not sure how its spelt) offer more
    I think he can play wide as well as through the middle

    also think bony will want champs league and there are a lot of clubs can offer that in Europe

    the other thing is sadio needs to move he appears to have burnt his bridges with with pulis and west brom so we might get him cheaper

    also the local greggs has had to lay off 2 bakers since benny left I am sure them and there families would love to get back to backing pies
    so really buying him would help the local economy

  • 14 WWSBRD // Jan 18, 2016 at 10:09 AM

    Oh mikey boy might be worth trying someone else I struggle to keep interest with someone who completely ignores what I said…it rather limits the debate

    Though since u asked I was happy when Pardew left yes though that has, again, nothing to do with ur original bait

  • 15 jazzyp // Jan 18, 2016 at 10:10 AM

    Beermonkey

    Who say’s Berahino doesn’t want CL football hence he would sooner go Spurs.
    I would love Berahino here mate but do you not think he is more of a risk than Bony who is proven ??

  • 16 mike ashley for the greater good // Jan 18, 2016 at 10:10 AM

    JDduai, thanks for agreeing but Pardew seems to be trusted with money at Crystal Palace.

  • 17 WWSBRD // Jan 18, 2016 at 10:12 AM

    beer
    Is Berahino chunky these days? Ive not seen him in ages but I did hear he was carrying some timber these days

  • 18 beermonkey // Jan 18, 2016 at 10:12 AM

    not sure McLaren is more trusted I think we have got to the point that if we don’t invest big we will go down there just isn’t quality in the squad to sustain first team injuries and out of form players

    we will spend again in the summer we will sell sissoko and then over the next 2 years the best will be flogged and we will slide down the table till we have to do it all again
    then again they might have changed

    Here’s a wee nibble
    We might have a decent revenue from ground advertising for one thing Mikey, without it looking like a tat shop.

    The analogy of a house is good.

    The truth of the matter is Mike Ashley bought a rotten Victorian pile with the superficial gloss of some 80’s cowboy work done on it.

    It had about 3 mortgages and 7 secured loans on it (we were still paying Real Madrid for M.Owen ffs)

    The current regime has taken about 7/8 years to restore it to the level of other dwellings in the street (The PL)

    IF Ashley hadn’t saved in the nick of time it woud have been condemned and demolished.

    After 7/8 years of root and branch ruthless cutting back , can it now be competitive in the streeet !
