I didn't say it was a small squad, I said it was strong one.But that is not true is it? Apart from keepers we had 17 players to choose from last season, the smallest squad (not roster) of any of the top sides in the Pl. Fernandinho gone and a whole host of others rumoured 7 in total. We need to sort out those 7 players ASAP.
Don't disagree with much of that although for 25 years of them, the bar has been very very very low!I have no idea what is going on internally at City. That said, i think we can apply some basic reasoning.
In relation to the players, with the exception of Bernardo, they are likely frustrated about playing time. Thus, it's understandable.
As for the assistant manager, he is leaving to be a full-time coach and will be likely earning a pretty penny in Qatar.
The scouting 'guru' is most likely being offered more money and/or a more senior or interesting role, no doubt due to another club rating him highly. We may have better quality staff working higher up the chain in the area of scouting so he does not have an opportunity to progress at City so good luck to him.
No idea with the women's team.
You get turnover of staff in successful organisations too. A degree of turnover can be healthy (less inertia, increase in energy and enthusiasm, different skills and knowledge, new ideas etc..). I have been a City fan for 40 years and in all that time I have never been more confident about the way the club is managed than I am now.
