Are you surprised JB? What surpsies me more is the expectation that the poll suggests that he will sign this January.

I sense a degree of desperation across Planet Blue, Buzz. Mirrored at the club. Cook and Hughes have both ill advisedly raised expectations at different times and their over inflated bids are being brutally exposed as clubs and players stand off. The vast majority of Blues are horrified at the prospect of Bellamy in a City shirt for starters. Many were hoping a Kaka signing would stop Hughes from embarrassingly going back a third time for both Bellamy and RSC.

I dont think the Kaka deal will happen, we simply are not a good enough team yet to tempt him. I don't know why he is persistantly chasing Bellendamy, there must be others out there that can do a job for us, but I do go back to why are we chasing a striker?

the money they are talking is obscene and immoral. £500k a week. Don't care what club or who the owners are, the football authorities should put a stop to such things. Would hate it at my club and at any other club. Just not right. What do you City fans think?

Villa fan here. Now while i love Kaka, and to me he is the best player in the world and also my favorite. The money that is being quoted is ridculous. £100-£175 million and £500,000 a week, nobody is worth that. Also i can't believe your lot are not using common sense. If it is true about it being £100 million, then why diden't they just use that money to buy 4, 5, 6 class players to strengthen the team. Because then you would have more chance to survive and move up the table with those players. And it is not really in midfield you need strengthen,surelly its at the back you need players first. UTV

Johnny/Buzz: I agree it was a lovely diversion and more than a bit of fun from the horror of imagining Bellamy et al in a City shirt. I also had more than a bit of fun fending off the jealousy on the other thread. Fear/Cox: I am not sure if I should be embarassed to admit that it did not bother me the money as it is all about supply and demand. The reality of Citys current position in world football with an unfashionable manager and no CL has to be quantified as well. Surely, genius should not be valued on the same scale as everyone else. If I gave it much thought, I would have to say anything over £10k/wk is obscene for most players when you consider stopping, controlling and kicking a ball accurately to a teammate looks beyond them. I would prefer Kaka at City than not as there is no way he would have come unless he was promised top class reinforcements as his teammates(which would rule out the Bellamys of this world). Top quality would want to play with him as it would add gravitas to Citys project and help fasttrack it. However, I am not unhappy as our owner doesn't appear the type to have a plan with just one option. I am not as convinced as you all are that the door is completely shut on this anyway. We have to sign quality now. Surely Hughes can see how close we were with this. No other club has got more than a f*** o** from Milan over the years when they have tried to sign Kaka. We actually made them think about it (we have not had an official no he is not for sale from AC Milan to my knowledge). Ironic that we came closer to signing him than the journeymen we have been chasing recently. It may horrify you all but I thought £ for £ Kaka would be better value for money than Bellamy/Santa Cruz too.
