Not written for a while since our signing of Nigel De jong. Not much has happened in the real world since, although we seem to be the target for some very unfavourable reporting. Both BitterandBlue and TLDORC have covered this in some detail recently. Our player being linked in unfounded transfer rumours even when they have denied all on their personal sites. Near slanderous sledging from certain Journalist who have simply lied and have been out of order. It's no surprise that the Sun is home to one of the Culprits.
City have become easy targets for abuse because we tried to sign one for the Best players in the world. A response that has it's grounds in jealousy that city shouldn't be allowed to try and buy Big Stars. Only a few including the Award Wining Sports Journalist Martin Samuel's have been decent enough to report without bias or an agenda. His recent interview with Mark Hughes was a refreshing break from the rest of the tabloid rubbish.
Transfer wise, nothing conclusive to report, only rumours. Shay Given is a certain target and it will be interesting to see if the deal will be done, we need an experienced goalie to take the reigns from the inexperienced and naive Joe Hart who needs to sit out a season or two and develop his game away from the spotlight.
Werder Bremen Midfielder Diego has been linked. The player is currently banned for Strangling an opposing player and has also been caught Drink Driving, although he denies being drunk! He is a Classy player apart of the same Satos side that Elano and Robinho has such great success at. He left for Porto and later joined Werder where is has become a player of great importance along side Frings. Who knows if there is any truth in the rumour, i hope there is!
Robinho has returned from Brazil and should be ready to play the toon on Wednesday night.
