Where it fucked up was that Mancini knew Balotelli wanted to leave but put everything into a difficult chase for Van Persie instead of just bringing in another striker & fucking him off.Cityfan said:This season and last seasons financial constraints are probably very different.
We have freed up money on wages from RSC, Bridge, Tevez ,Balotelli, Maicon and Toure last year it was mainly Ade and Bellers of significance.
Mancini/Marwood also got in Nastasic and Rodwell so it was hardly a disaster the eason before the same team bought in Aguero, Nasri, Clichy and er Savic who except for the latter looked just as potentially influential as this lot.
We made a couple of mistakes last year but taken overall our business has looked pretty decent over all of the last three years to me.
I bet we could have signed some of these guys last season.
