Rotation is part of the game in this country. City will go for all 4 trophys. You cannot do that playing the same 11 every 3 days. 2nd string players will get pissed off particularly when they are internationals and think they are worth their place. We face losing 2 or 3 players a year because of this - we know it happens and will continue to do so. If you want to play the kids in the League Cup and FA Cup and go out in the 3rd or 4th round so effectively be only challenging for 2 trophys then we can stop rotating - then again were not Liverpool.

Just read on the BBC gossip page Fernandinho has been put on the released list, I wish him the best, now just Mendy to move on, hopefully to our French Club so that will be 4 out, a striker, a midfielder and two defenders , in should be 1 defender 1 defensive midfielder 1 attacker and 1 striker, playing an adaptable 4,1,4,1 system with Delap 3rd choice striker and Doyle 3rd choice defensive midfielder these two have out grown the U23s

No he hasn't! He just isn't on retained list as contract is up end of month ;)
If he's offered and signs contract he'll be added.....those lists mean nothing more than still in contract or not for next season.......he's only left/Leaving if he's been told he's not getting an offer, and we dont know if he has or hasn't......simple ;)

If Laporte does end up leaving, I'd love Bastoni from Inter

I have a bad feeling we are going to let Laporte go for around £50m in some madly structured deal which would be an atrocious piece of business.

...
Err, yes he is, if he isn't on the retained list then he's got to be on the released list.

He might yet sign back up in some form or other but I've got more than a sneaking feeling that we're waiting for confirmation or not on a replacement.
