From Football Italia on Channel 4......

"Giorgio Chiellini’s agent has revealed that the Juventus defender is hoping to join Manchester City this week.

The former Azzurrini full-back was linked with Liverpool in recent weeks and seems set to leave the Serie B champions after stating that he felt neglected by the club.

Reports in Italy last week suggested that he had become a target for Manchester City, as Sven Goran Eriksson hoped to add the defender to the Italian contingent formed by Rolando Bianchi and Bernardo Corradi.

“I will soon meet Juventus to discuss Giorgio’s future,” said Davide Lippi. “We all hope that he will soon join Manchester City." "

Too true! I check the newsnow feed every hour or so when I'm at work to keep myself updated with who we're linked with at the moment.

So just today, these are the names of players linked with City.....(in chronological order.....)......
Bojinov (Fiorentina)
Elano (Shakhtar Donetsk)
Leighton Baines
Silvestre
Scott Carson
Zigic ( Racing Santander)
Keiron Dyer.....yes, still.
Alan Smith
Chiellini (Juve)

And that's just today. Strange and surreal times to be a City fan.

It's a good job the whole 'innocent until proven guilty' thing was abolished all those years ago, or the press wouldn't really have much to do anymore.

On another note, Castillo's gone to Shaktar, so he's off the list.

Manchester City are understood to have lodged a bid with Fiorentina for Valeri Bojinov.

Sven Goran Eriksson has already signed one Bulgarian in the shape of Martin Petrov and now he is hoping to add another. Eriksson is desperately trying to re-shape City's squad before the transfer window closes and has added four new faces so far, but he could add up to ten more within the next month.

Bojinov has now emerged as a target with Italian reports claiming a bid was lodged on Monday with Fiorentina. The Florence club are now considering the bid, but look likely to let the 21-year-old open talks with City.

Bojinov spent last season on-loan at Juventus, but they have decided against taking up their option on him and Fiorentina have since made the striker available for transfer.

Is Bojinov any good? And is there any more news on the Curtis Davis/Chilliani

Bojinov's very good- he was a bit of a wonderkid when he broke onto the scene at Lecce- but  I think he's struggled to live up to his potential.

Davies I think was just paper-talk, whilst we've had a bid rejected for Chiellini, and are now being linked with a young Real Sociedad left-back, Garrido, and a Croatian defender, Corluka.

Elano's expected to sign this week though.

He's the Brazilian, right? Is he any good? I know he is supposed to be a play maker with a decent score ratio...

Elano's been a regular for Brazil under Dunga- he certainly sounds good on paper,  though whether or not he'll adjust to English football is impossible to tell at the moment. We'll just have to trust Sven knows what he's doing.

I've heard rumours that there'll be a press conference tomorrow- probably to announce some of these new signings

likelyhood is that the unveiling of Bujoniv will be 2moz. Hopefully Sven will unveil more than one player.

Shrewsbury 0 - Man City 2 (Corradi, Dickov)

Corradi scores yet again! Seems a new manager has brought some life to his legs! Wonder if he will have a part to play this coming season. I know these are only friendlies against lesser opponants (some might argue the contrary!) but I'd rather him score than not. Maybe Sven will be able to improve his game? Who knows!!?

I wasn't upset when Corradi came in, he's done it elsewhere and wasn't a donkey buy, its just that we had nothing coming from midfield last season (apart from Joey, who scored anything he created), so the chances were at a premium and the pressure was on the striker to convert every one that came along. I say give him a shot, he's not worse than fucking Vassell anyway.

As for Dickov, move him on.

Yeah I'd give him a go, looking at his pre season. Dickov is too old now, and never really cut it at the top anyway. He has scored some vital goals for us, one imparticular springs immediately to mind! But he has done his bit for us a few years ago. If he continues to hang on, he is in danger of making his role in city folklore slightly tarnished.

Love the moaning git, but he needs to move on.

I'm positiviely giddy!!!! I mean this could all backfire, but at least what it means is that Michael Ball isn't guaranteed first team football, and that my friend is always a good thing!!!

I thought Bally was a pretty good player. He did ok for us at the end of last season.

If I were a City fan I would be less concerned than what was happening on the pitch - I reckon Sven'll do a pretty good job- that the fact you have a serial human rights abuser and alledged crook as your chairman!
I've witnessed some of Thaskin's shenanigans first hand and he makes Berlusconi look like Mother Theresa! Take my word for it- this will come crashing down around the clubs ears.
Next year when a democraticaly elected government is back in charge of Thailand the government will have no choice but to extradite him on the corruption charges (and he will be charged), He is very likely to be found guilty and will no longer be deemed a 'Fit and Proper person'- your board should hang their heads in shame for getting into bed with this character and unfortunately it's the fans who are going to suffer in the long run.
A huge, huge mistake.

Meh, I'm not too bothered really. Its City, there's always something, if its not this its that. Fuck it.

Anyhoo, the money he's invested in the Club is clean, whatever happens after that is another thing.

And like I said, its never boring at City, this is just another chapter.

As for human rights violations, where was Amnesty and all these human rights groups last year when I had to witness City go 5 months without a goal at home?

Pah, fucking doo gooders....

Elano Garrido and Coluka all confirmed, thank you very much!

Also I didnt realise our new owner was a Doctor, I don't know what all the fuss is about, surely there's never been a evil Dr?!

so you have suffered under "Frank" frist hand eh? In what respect? And how do you know "he will be charged"?
Insider info? Or a worried rag?

There are always two sides to a story, and there are plenty who believe that "Frank" did more in the battle against drugs than any before him. Are you sure you're not a Daily Mail reader just regurgitating what you have read before?
If he was some kind of war mongerer then the city board would not appoint him and the F.A would not have deemed him fit and proper.
As I said before, I have never known a billionaire (or even a millionaire) who was whiter than white.

Let the facts come out before making rash judgements just because he fancied our club more than yours.

From: 30 minutes walk from Manchester city centre.
The issue about Shinawatra taking over City and what City fans should think is something of a moot point now. He has taken over and there's pretty much fuck all the fans can do about it. (But you did say alleged crook. Are the human rights violations allegations as well?)

If you want to apportion blame, then feel free to point at City's board, but don't forget that the FA and even our own government could do something if they wanted to.
The FA and the government have done nothing about the takeover. If nothing else, it shows that the higher up you get in football, it's all about the business side and less about the football.

What is this fit and proper test anyway?
Seems like something along the lines of:
"Are you loaded?
If so, are you willing to spend an amount of money that your average footy fan in the street can't imagine?
You are on both counts? Jolly good. Welcome to English football, it will cost you eleventy squillion pounds thank you very much."


I'm excited about what's going on at my club, I genuinely am, but this is tempered by two things.
1. I still harbour some fear that it doesn't matter who the manager is, how much money he is given and who he buys, this is still City and City-related thing always have a propensity to go wrong.
2. Mr Shinawatra might have hidden reasons for taking over (you know, like maintaining popularity amongst the Thai people where football is so popular) but as I said above, it's a moot point.

And ultimately, those two points don't matter because if nothing else, City Til I Die.

Fuck it! If i was a City fan I'd be very happy right now. Its exciting getting new players in and it looking like you may have a whole new team. If your new manager can get it all working together it could be a great time for the blue half.

Hopefully you'll be able to stop having to advertise your club on billboards and buses!

Bojinov, Bianchi, Petrov and Elano are all excellent signings. I'm starting to get a bit irritated.
