Sparky's Statement Of Intent

Sparky's Statement Of Intent

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes gave the Premier League and the football community as a whole something I bet he thought he would never be able to do - Sparky's Statement Of Intent.


Robinho

After pulling off one of the most remarkable transfer coups in Premier League history when they smashed the British record by landing Brazil forward Robinho from Real Madrid for £32.5million, Hughes told thousands of bleary-eyed City supporters staying up past many of their bedtimes last night...

'I have said that in order to compete with the best teams in the Premier League, we have to be in the market for players of this calibre, and Robinho is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world. This is a real statement of intent as to the ambitions of Manchester City.'

It's just unbelievable. When you consider Chelsea sanctioned the sale of thousands of Robinho replica kits on line this week, it gives you an idea of the seismic shift in spending power the Arabs have made possible.

if they add 'nearly signed for us' underneath they may get some money back with a bit of discount.

The management would fear for their lives if they sold Lady Boy to us.

lol. I myself doubt that he would come to Middle Eastlands, and I think it'd get right up the noses of true blues and rags alike if it went through. I can't stand the idiot, and him wearing blue wouldn't change that any time soon. I was more curious to your reactions at the proposal than whether you think it'll happen though. Still, thanks for the replies.

Congrats to all you Citeh fans from the Chels. Gutted you snatched Rob from under our noses, but that's the way the cookie crumbles! We know what a rollercoaster ride you're about to go on. And it'll be nice, when your honeymoon's over, not to be the most despised team in England anymore. I'd love it if you lot bought the Winker!

I think Robinho will prove to be the bargain of the season when you think of the £70-80m being asked for the likes of Ladyboy, Kaka, Messi etc.
