Billy, i disagee with you on the rotation, its necessary to an extent of course, but roberto overdoes it to the point its counterpriductive. The strikers are not match fit Because they have such stop start playing-time. Injuries happen just as much through lack of match fitness as through overuse, but most often they happen compketely out of the blue. You know iv alwys been pro dzeko, and think we should alwaus start big man little man.. Starting edin just because carlos had a couple games where he didnt score is not the way to do it. When he doesnt score in the next 60 minutes of a game, which is ok for a striker, he too will b benched in turn. All it affects is confidence and morale, and gives mancini something to focus on in post match discussions, ignoring the real issue which is lack of attacking play in midfield.. i do feel our strikers more often than not get rotated out of form. We are lucky to have such good strikers that are able to produce goals whether off the bench or start, but i think more consistancy and less tinkering would lead to far mire productive and stable performances. I do agree that januaru may well b a good time to get a replacement for balotelli, someone who will make a difference when called upon, and a creative midfielder..
