You've got to be a manager in top-flight football for ten years before you even get whispered in those circles,
But to me the bottom line is the more education you can give yourself, and the more preparation you can do, the less chance of failing.
He's keen to show what he can do, he's done enough to suggest it will be well worth having a look at him,
We started extremely well, we had our tails up and put them under pressure. If I'm honest, maybe the lack of firepower has cost us with losing Georgios at the weekend, but I won't make excuses.
With what has happened to Coley, he is certainly not going at the moment. That might be a decision we make in March or April.
I don't want to portray myself as a hard man in management or anything like that.
Matt will be training with us today. We will have a look at him and see what the situation is. At this stage it is impossible to say what will happen.
The effort of the team is very good at the moment and we're gaining in confidence as a team,
We have disappointment in our camp. United didn't create too many clear cut chances and their goalkeeper made a world class save to keep Cole out.
I told him to bring us 14 or 15 goals this season and he is well on the way to providing that.
Credit to Kasper, because he has done exactly what we wanted from him, as well as what Bury wanted, so it has worked very well for both of us.
At this club, all I see is great backing all the way down for me and I will be judged on results like the next man.
As a young man trying to make your way in life, you feel your back is against the wall and you are scrapping against the whole world,
What has happened is disappointing but I still feel as though something will be sorted out in terms of agreeing a contract with Joey.
I am doing the job with the mentality that I am going to be here a long time and I hope that I am.
In an ideal world, we will still qualify for Europe.
Today I thought we deserved it. Results haven't been good at the club but the players have stuck at it and they've been under a bit of pressure.
I certainly don't think we deserved to lose. There's a great confidence in the dressing-room at the moment and a growing will not to get beaten.
I want them to be fully committed to the work place and fully committed to the people they work for.
We think it was a wise investment. He's still got an awful lot to learn but he was a real handful for them.
We've Claudio back in training and we'll judge how he comes along.
I do appreciate that the most important thing as a manager is to get good results.
If we inundate the courts with these charges, I'm hoping sooner or later that somebody's going to strike down that fact, that we're not born poachers.
With the length of contract we are offering it's no gamble for this club.
He Fowler is like anyone else at our club in that if someone made a serious offer for him we would sit down and think about it.
He has performed exceptionally well this year and is one of our top three, there is no doubt about that.
Andy is having an operation today and we think he will be out for between four and five weeks.
I have made it totally clear to the players that my door will always be open.
Manchester City is a club of the community, a family club, and I don't condone it.
This must be the only industry in the world where you can have a total novice, who has not even been in management for one year, being touted for the top job in English football. Would we say the next prime minister is going to be someone who has not even been elected as an MP (lawmaker) yet No.
