Aye,

 

Someone tweeted he actually Rated 2001-2003 Kieron Dyer higher and I agree. :lol:

 

Man Utd getting Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin for less than that amount :lol:

 

I know City are trying to get in some UK based players but really..

Wouldn't City have been better served buying a promising youngster from elsewhere for comparative buttons. Like Hughes from Derby, Izzy Brown from West Brom* or Villa's Jack Grealish? Ticks the English box, ticks the promising box, but doesn't cost anywhere near £49m!

 

 

QPR getting £9m from a sell-on clause. :lol:

 

 

 

 

 

*Chelsea picked him up apparently.

He's more marketable than them, and already proven to be good enough for the premier league.

 

50m is buttons to this lot, they've a family worth of about a trillion dollars, they're just buying whoever they fancy buying.

but as you say, money is no object, so why do they care about marketability? Their brand would surely be better served signing a global name (like Schweinsteiger, or Pedro or whomever), rather than Sterling who had a couple of decent seasons for a Europa League level team?

It's a dodgy transfer for City like, arming a club that could threaten their CL spot with ~£40m.

 

Aye, if they were signing Suarez from Liverpool I could understand it, but Sterling isn't the difference between Liverpool & Champions League, nor is he the difference between City and the title, but as you say, if Liverpool go off and make a couple of shrewd signings, they could well take City's Champions League spot.

Have you seen Rodgers transfer record?

 

Hes never had the shout though. The Anfield transfer "committee" made him take Ballotelli last summer a month after he said that he wasn't signing. Bottom line is Rodgers is a slight upgrade on Pardew as a coach. That's not a high bar. That's why he couldn't get anything out of Ballotelli which is basically his job description i.e. get the best out of the players provided for him, not to recruit them himself.
