Can I Have A Word?
Well the drama is finally over until the summer...the January transfer window is officially closed. Personally I am satisfied with the signings that Mark Hughes has made. I will admit that I was quite sceptical about Craig Bellamy, but his debut goal against Newcastle United was well-taken and he looks hungry and keen to prove himself despite his arrogance. The rumoured £14 million price tag is inflated, but that's to be expected now that City have the 'Richest Club in the World' label, although this isn't necessarily right.
Midfielder Nigel De Jong has been signed for £17 million to provide some bulk and weight in the centre of the pitch and experienced goalkeeper Shay Given is City's final signing of the window. I think the signings are a step in the right direction, impressive and exactly the type of players that we needed. Jo has gone to Everton on loan and that's a good move for him following a disappointing few months at City.
The Kaka saga was the talking point of the window. I have previously posted on here saying that £107 million for one player was stupid money. I rate Kaka as one of the best players in the world but I just didn't think he was right for City at the moment. We need to build stability and get the right players in before we can throw in a major star like Kaka.
The results of my last vote are now in. I asked who you thought had been City's best player of the season so far and Vincent Kompany just edged out Stephen Ireland. The new poll is now open so get voting!
Keep the blue faith as always,
