Ronaldo with half a leg is more lethal than most premiership strikers when fully fit. Sparky also has a good record of keeping crocked players fit see Santa Cruz, Dunn, Bellamy and others at blackburn.

I think we can trust Hughes to play his best side. There will be opportunities for Ronaldo when he is fit. Also a 12-month contract isn't too bad. There is a higher-than-usual risk factor about this one, but it could turn out to be very shrewd business.

Hughes is certainly shrewd Sinbad! A fully fit and firing Ronaldo would cost £30m+ in today's market. Time will tell!

Well someone had to sign him, gonna be one of those players either a great signing or a poor one. Either way it is another signal of intent of Man City.

Pile of *****e. The guy is totally finished. Why would you go near him with all your mega-zillions? Surely the likes of Gomez / Villa etc, your deadline day targets make more sense in the long run?

Sirtes...It is very difficult to sign players in January especially if they are playing in the Champions League so this short term signing is a very shrewd move. If he flops so what, but then again he might just light up The Premiership like the crock Santa Cruz did..

As long a Ronaldo's legs keep going he'll be a fantastic asset to the club. The Arabs want as much publicity as possible hence the signing. Ronaldo is just another step in their quest to take over the footballing world!

10 years ago, I watched Gareth Taylor playing up front for City. I'll take on Ronlardo.
