Joe Hart: Demanding improvement from Manchester City

The 2012 Premier League champions failed to pick up silverware this term and saw boss Roberto Mancini depart the club.

England keeper Hart says the players have to regroup and push on next season, whoever the manager is.

He told Sky Sports News: "We need to improve. Last year was not what we wanted, we didn't really achieve any goals that we wanted to achieve.

"(It was) down to us but we need to improve massively next year.

"But that's what's exciting about this club."

He added: "It's not a thing that you just intend to be good for one season, we want be good for years and build a massive reputation and that's all part of next year.

"It's not all going to go our way but we've got to have the character to come back."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
