Manchester City have signed Brazil midfielder Elano from Shakhtar Donetsk for £8m to complete a hat-trick of deals for manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.

 

The Swedish boss also picked up Javier Garrido from Real Sociedad for £1.5m and Vedran Corluka from Dinamo Zagreb for an undisclosed fee, on Thursday.

 

Elano, 26, and left-back Garrido, 22, have secured a four-year contracts.

 

Croatia defender Corluka, 21, who can play at either right-back or central defence, has signed a five-year deal.

I'm really desperate for West Ham and Man City to fail next season.

 

I'm more worried about West Ham though. They're signing players with Premiership experience, whereas City's buys are all unproven in England.

And have you heard of any of them bar Elano?

 

Your point?

 

Would you prefer panic buys and team full of players that you've never heard of and are unproven in the Premiership that all speak a different language?

 

So every successful player in the premiership has to be well known prior to coming to the premiership in order to succeed?

Asking questions is fun isn't it?

The thing with Man City is that they were a complete pile of shite last season, so have a long way to go and whilst they may be good players (mostly i don't know them) they probably all won't instantly fit into the pace of the prem.

 

The likes of Viduka, Geremi, Barton and Smith are already proven in the prem as is Owen who is essentiall a new signing this season.
