By the media we have been given x amount of reasons, hints and ideas of why our season has gone down the drain. We have also been the witnesses of under-performing players, a certain player hitting out at our manager in the news and also some of our players defending our manager while accusing their fellow players.
I have come up with a list of players exempt from the cause of Manchester City's disaster and a list of possible culprits.
Exempt: Shaun Wright-Phillips, Robinho, Martin Petrov, Valeri Bojinov, Stephen Ireland, Daniel Sturridge, Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta, Felipe Caicedo, (Wayne Bridge, Only just arrived), Benjani Mwaruwari, Kelvin Etuhu.
"THE GUARDIAN: Mark Hughes has identified a small but influential group of Manchester City players he fears are trying to lead a dressing-room mutiny against him."
Possible culprits: Elano, Jo.
Under-performers or just not good enough, we have all seen it with our own eyes, stupid mistakes that have cost us games and complete wasteful play.
Micah Richards, Richard Dunne, Michael Ball, Javier Garrido, Ched Evans, Darius Vassel, Jo Alves, Elano, Gelson Fernandes, Dietmar Hamann, Tal Ben Haim.
Check that out, pretty much half of our first team.
I left Micah Richards a message on his web site micahrichards.com as follows.
"Dear Micah Richards,
I am a 33 year old Manchester City fan and following talk of you stating you take criticism in your stride, I would like to give you some 33-year-old criticism.
You, Micah Richards, Richard Dunne, and Michael Ball have been disgraceful this season, the embarrassment we City fans endured losing to Notts Forest was disgraceful.
All three of you get paid x amount of money to fight off Premier League Strikers week in week out and all three of you let two struggling championship strikers make us look pathetic & foolish.
Do you seriously think you deserved to wear a Manchester City FC shirt that day? I think not.
You and Richard Dunne have let the whole club down and in my own opinion, you really should be sold on and shipped out but due to the fact we have no one better, we have no choice but to put more unearned faith in both of you.
Do you deserve our faith, can you earn it back or do you want to leave as we only want players that want to play for us 110 percent, those who would be proud to play in our shirt? Do you really want to be part of Manchester City FC? If so, then why are you not giving 110 percent?
Mark Hughes in all honesty has arrived at Manchester City with a squad consisting of 50 percent deadwood, its not Mark Hughes's fault, it is all Sven Eriksson's fault if anyone's.
Mark Hughes needs time to clean out the deadwood and put the underperformers in their place. Right now morale is probably low, lower than its ever been for two seasons so I believe Mark Hughes will be relying on his new signings to pick us up.
Personal note, it's great seeing a manager get off his seat, shouting orders at the team doing his job.
Do the right thing by supporting Mark Hughes.
