Joleon Lescott must sometimes wonder what it is he needs to do to impress at City. In his four years with the club he has amassed 101 appearances but throughout his tenure with the club he has always been seen to be a squad man. A backup for a first choice centreback. At the start of this season it was Nastasic who kept Lescott on the bench and before that Kolo Toure continually prevented him from getting a run in the team. You have to go back to a 6 month period in 2011 where you could realistically say that Lescott was a first choice centre back for us.Discuss this article in the forums (10 replies).
How would you sum up Manchester City's campaign this season. It has to be Jeckyl & Hyde with the bad being away from home wheras our home form being sublime. Although our premier league campaign has got off to a stuttering start and let's face it, 8th isn't where we want to be sitting right now things are not all doom & gloom.
In the same week that our owner has provided a rare insight into where he sees the future of our development policy. We put 7 past Norwich with 5 different City goalscorers and qualify for the Champions league you would think watching the reaction of some fans that the defeat at Sunderland would put us into a relegation scrap.
Right from the word go this season City have picked up one injury after another which has continued to hamper Pellegrini's team selection, especially the back four. Things are starting to look like they are settling down though and as long as we do not pick up any injuries against CSKA Moscow tomorrow night we may well finally have a full squad of players to choose from come the 27th and Chelsea.
Vincent Komany and Demichelis are the only noticable absentees from tomorrow evenings Line-up and although the loss of Kompany is a big loss we have plenty who can cover. Pellegrini seems to prefer Garcia in the role although the fans, some more than others, wince when his name is read out as part of the back four set-up.
