Pellegrini orders Canary Roast

With 10 games to go Manchester City are 10 points off the top of the Premier League in a far from Perfect 10 scenario.

It seems an eternity since Roberto Mancini’s side were on the receiving end of a shock FA Cup Final defeat to the now relegated Pie Eaters of ‘Wi-gone’ – come to think of it, it seems a lifetime since City were Roberto Mancini’s men.
