yeah, are you listening to talksport too?

Just mentioned that there and they reckon that the fact Utd have made a 2nd bid and that Moyes has confirmed it means they must have got some kind of encouragement from Barca or the player.   I wonder if Villanova leaving will hinder or help chances of signing him.

As a Utd supporter and someone who thinks Cesc is a quality player, I'm not too impressed that we'd spend 30M+ on him. Fellaini would rather be someone to target. Not sure if Moyes is not allowed to do so though.

Suarez to Arsenal  :P

City have bought very well IMO, overpaid for the players they have got in but if they all click then they will be super tough to beat

If they click.

I fully expect City to struggle early doors.

It takes time to bed in new players, and they insist on a relentless policy of player recruitment.

I could be wrong.  Hope not.  ;D

I think he's probably allowed to do so but was discussing this with my bro at weekend (he's a Utd fan), I think Moyes needs some kind of a marquee signing to give Utd fans a shot in the arm amidst the Rooney saga and the uncertainty of a new manager coming in and fact that City and others have been spending.

I think in order to get the fans onboard fully he needs to get a big name, not someone who used to play for Everton, thats too obvious, makes out that he lacks imagination/inspiration to identify players able to play for Utd so just turns to the guys he knows.  Ordinarily Fellaini would be a great signing for most teams inc Utd i just dont think he's perhaps top of the list for the reasons Ive just listed.

Agree with Lewis, not that its my job to manage the books at City but happy with the players we have got, but would like to have picked them up for about 5m less than reported for both of them.  Hopefully reports are exaggerated, everyone likes a 'City offered 30m for a player worth 15m' story.

Yep i agree Utd need a big signing to get the fans onside and believing in Moyes.  I can't see Cesc leaving Barca but if he does then my money would be a return to Arsenal.  And City's money and slight overpaying is the reason they get deals done so quickly... instead of haggling over 2/3mil in a fee they just pay it

Is smiting frowned upon?   you wrote off City's chances and even hoped for it.  You left me with no choice :D

No  ;D
Just a blot on my clean copybook... 
Hate to think I've upset anyone!

Afraid I am not a fan of the City way of doing things...

Sure all their fans are very nice chaps though  :D
And don't smite people without just cause  :D
