Valeri Bojinov, The Bulgarian Raging Bull's comeback is gathering pace...
It could well be that Bluesy might now hold back on the search for another striker until the last minute this month as he monitors the progress of Bojinov's promising return to first team action - A return that could save City many millions.
His headed goal against the quintessentially brilliant Stockport County yesterday will have given the lad a tremendous boost and the belief that he will soon be able to charge about up front roughing up defenders for City the way he did in Italy.
With Jo getting polluted in China and Benjani thigh knacked, there has been much talk of City shelling out big time for Roque Santa Cruz at Blackburn. But if I were Bluesy, I'd settle for what we have right now.
Bianchi and Vassell's Premier League experience may yet prove surplus to requirements leaving Benjani, Evans, Sturridge, Jo, Caicedo and Bojinov making up what could become an embarrassment of mainly young and powerful riches in the MCFC armoury. Jo and Bojinov up front could prove a fearsome partnership with the right service.
It's likely these lads will get to work together regularly on a rotational basis unlike being asked to fulfil the lone striker roles they essentially failed in under Svennis.
The Boj has time on his side to recover from that appalling knee injury suffered against the rags last summer. There is no need to rush him back with too much action too soon. But so far, so good. Only 22, he could still have a long and rewarding career in the game. Here's to that career being with Manchester City!
Do you think Bluesy should still spend on another striker? Give us a shout on the Vital MC Forums.
