Down again - End of season report

Down again - End of season report

I watched the game but was so disgusted in the apathetic performance that I decided I would not be doing a report. Instead I enclose an end of season report on the manager and players.

Jakupovic - Yes he is a good goalkeeper but not a great one. If City get £4-5 million for him they should snap their hand off.

Marshall - Panic buy disaster, maybe he would be better in the Championship but I would be inclined to get rid.

McGregor - Probably City's first choice in the Championship if Jakupovic goes. A good keeper but prone to the odd error.

Robertson - Had a good season and will more than likely move on for 8-10 £million. Good at going forward but not a top class defender - probably better in midfield.

Dawson - Still a good centre back and will probably be better in the Championship if he stays.

Ranocchia - Top class centre back who will return from his loan spell. Expect to see him with a Prem London club next season, whoever doesn't get Maguire.

Maguire - Man mountain who has matured into City's best player - expect a £10 million + transfer soon?

Davies - Will probably excel in the Championship next season - bit parts only since Silva arrived

Elmohamady - Sorry but I never saw him as a defender - too erratic - if he goes it wouldn't be a big loss - loyal servant to Bruce.

Elabdellaoui - Looks a good dependable full back from what we've seen - not sure if we bought him or he is on loan. If he's ours he should stay.

Markovic - Already gone back to Liverpool I presume - good in bits but too inconsistent, not worth the money Liverpool paid for him.

Grosicki - Quick but no end product so far. Let's hope he has a better season in the Championship.

Huddlestone - Still a good player, sadly not used against Palace. Needs to be used in the Championship.

Clucas - City's second best player of the season, must stay - work ethic unbelievable.

Evandro - Not a good as either Huddlestone or Clucas.

Meyler - A combative midfielder who will be at home in the Championship.

Maloney - Looks to be on his way out but I never could see the reason we bought him in the first place - diminutive.

Mason - Sad end to his season and I hope he plays again. Not worth the money we paid.

N'Diaye - Not sure if he's sale or return but I wouldn't keep him if we can send him back.

Hernandez - A City enigma - would probably do well in the Championship but personally I would get rid if Bruce is willing to pay £10 million. Too inconsistent and only seems to play when he wants.

Mbokani - Waste of money, there are better battering rams in the first division - get rid Niasse - should go back to Everton too inconsistent.

Diomande - Works hard but just another battering ram really.

Silva - A great first half season in the Premiership, hope he stays but think he will go. Tactically a bit suspect in the last 2 games, particularly against Palace playing Maguire at right back.
