Nothing to smile about Manuel...and we don't want you at Chelsea

So Pellegrini saw fit to send his youngsters to Stamford Bridge to play in the most prestigious domestic cup tournament in the world. What a shame. He disrespected the competition and, if you want to get sensitive, disrespected Chelsea. In the end he got what he deserved and probably gained nothing in terms of experience for his young guns who will probably just feel demoralised.

Chelsea have the best set of youngsters out there and have basically won it all in the last few years and they wouldn't dream of putting them out as a whole team.

So Pellegrini had injury and team concerns ahead of his Champions League tie against Dynamo what. This isn't the CL semi-final or final we're talking about..he should have played his best team on Sunday and his best team in the CL a few days later. With the form they are currently in, City have no hope of a CL final appearance anyway.

Lets hope in years to come managers, especially foreign managers, understand the importance of domestic trophies like the FA Cup and don't start fielding second string sides in that competition. We already have a competition for that and it's called the League Cup...oh and guess what, Man City are in the final of that one.
