Manchester City will not win the league

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy does not think that our opponents tomorrow have much of a chance of winning the Premier League this season.

We all know that Mark Hughes has been spending money in a bid to keep up with Real Madrid. His headline grabbers are obviously Adebayor and Tevez, which were added to an already impressive strike force of Robinho and Bellamy.

Gareth Barry jumped ship from free falling Aston Villa to join, much to the surprise of the bewildered Martin O`Neill. Toure has also left Arsenal to join, while Lescott is desperate to leave Everton to join up with the most ambitious club in the Premier League. (Massive pay cheques are obviously coincidental; all these players have clearly joined the club for the love of the game.)

So with a big array of talent, Manchester City are being linked with breaking into the top four, while some suggest they should be battling to lift the title.

Some might claim it, but some does not include Mick McCarthy: 'I don't think that expecting them to win the league when they have just bought a team is realistic." McCarthy told the Birmingham Mail.

He then went on to add that they might be there or there abouts, but ultimately will fall at some point: 'They might make a push for it. But I just don't think it is realistic to expect them to win the league when others have got a settled team.'

Vital Wolves Comment: Way to go Mick, lets rile them up ahead of our game on Saturday, they won`t want to prove us wrong by handing us a humiliating defeat now will they?

mick is prolly correct we wont win the title this season, he would of only answered a question put to him by a journo, they ask all manager how they think city will do just so they can provoke a response from the city fans, its called building us up for a fall and the media cant wait for the day we lose to a team we shouldnt lose to. anyway good luck wolves for this season (just not in saturdays match) ;)

Mick always seems to give an honest assessment, lets hope the timing of the article does not come back to haunt us greatly. For what it is worth, I think he is probably correct for this season. Top s for sure, and next season top 3 if all goes to plan. The Wolves that is not Man City (honest)
