    Are Manchester City ruining english football?

    Are manchester City damaging english football?
    They buy who they want when they want. They remind me of a spoilt child, who get what they want but they don't really need it. They get it because they can.

    The likes of Javi Garcia, Jack Rodwell and Scott Sinclair all of them great players but none of them get game time, they are left out week in week out.

    Before moving to Man City they were all well respected players at their clubs and looked promising, but since moving to City we don't hear their names.

    In a word 'yes'. Totally agree with everything you say. On a slight aside, whilst foreign influence is important for the Premiership, I also think there should be a cap on non-domestic players in order to nurture homegrown talent more. I think the English National side is suffering as a result of many English club sides fielding a team with only a couple of English players, sometimes even one and occasionally none!

    If they aquire players who plays an english style football then everything is ok. Problem is that this is the case only in 20%, rest of them are separate stories, not a team players.
    Dzeko is maybe the best one but there is no team mates who will asist him and make something for the team and not for themselves.

    Hmmm you've got a good point, Scott Sinclair was looking good at Swansea, kinda gone massively to waste at City, i imagine they just bought they for European Home grown player quota's paid just the warm the bench or allow registration in the first place, bit like marrying for a green card in america...
