No City plans to axe Brown

Reports suggest beleaguered Hull City boss Phil Brown will still be in charge of the Tigers for next weekend's game against Stoke City.
The BBC is reporting that Brown will hold talks with new chairman Adam Pearson on Monday but the manager's position will not be discussed.
Speaking immediately after Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Burnley, which had been labelled as a must-win game for Brown, the Tigers boss said: "I will speak to the owner (Russell Bartlett) later and on Sunday, and we will find out more on Monday.
"I expect to be manager of this club in the Premier League next year."
Pearson will replace Paul Duffen, who resigned as chairman earlier in the week.
Meanwhile, Brown was unhappy with referee Mike Jones' display at Turf Moor, saying: "The Burnley fans were baying for blood because of the first decision that went against us.
"If it stays 0-0 at half-time the game stays tight. I've got no qualms with their second goal - but at that stage it should have been 2-1 to us. Maybe you should start interviewing referees after the game.
"You don't want excuses, you don't want reasons, you want referees to make big decisions. If the referee is going home thinking he's got the big decisions right I'm begging him to go home and watch Match of the Day tonight and tell me he's got them right."
