Revolving Door & Now Expect Exits?

Google language translator

Tal Ben-Haim and Jo look set to leave City within the next 28 hours.

Ben-Haim is locked in talks with Sunderland which I understand to be a permanent deal.

While Everton are in talks with Manchester City over a possible loan deal for Jo?

I've only been awake a matter of hours and already its all kicking off. Keep on Manchester City Vital Football for all the official news.

It's about time we started talking about exits rather than just who we're going to buy. Tal Bern Haim clearly has no future at the club after his poor performances and going behind Hughes' back to Gary Cook. Good riddance, he'll probably do OK at Sunderland cause he's worked with Sbragia before. Jo is stagnating at City and a loan deal will be the best thing for him and the club. It would be typical city if he did really well for Everton and denied us a place in Europe, but that's the risk we will have to take if we ever want to se 19million worth of player. I can't see him coming back to MCFC if he does well, but at least we might manage to recoup some of he money we paid for him. Any news on Vassell, Mills, Berti and Ball (Ball is recovering from surgery, can't we buy him out?)

It will be interesting to see if Moyes plays Jo in his proper position, that is one behind the striker.

I doubt it alphieblues, but that would be a good thing as it would force jo to get stronger and play centre forward which is where we need him to play.

Considering we don't actually have a striker (well we have anichebe but he's beyond useless, and even why our other 3 are injured he still doesn't play), Jo would more than likely play up front alone if he came.

I was under the impression Jo was an out and out striker rather than operating behind the main striker? I'm sure he and Cahill will find a way if they end up playing together. As for us taking him full time at the end of the loan, well i can't see that happening, in order for it to happen you'd be looking at a huge loss because there is not a chance we would pay 19 million for one of your back up players. Unfortunately you'd be looking at a massive loss, possibly beginning to reap the costs of paying well over the odds i'm afraid. Tried and tested is what you need. If this move happens, it's win win for Everton and possibly another great signing by Moyes.

Jo is second striker, dropping deep and linking the play. Which he did to good effect at cska playin of fox in the box wagner love. Which explains why hes never settled at city, playing up top alone. Jo only hope for a city future is IF hughes gets sacked in the summer. Thats looking very likely.

I don't think we will catch Everton, but even if we did that means Jo is not doing the business and a Summer sale is on. If he Starts to motor then the move has done it's job and where here only one striker gets the nod, Everton are struggling in that department and a regular place and a good run of games maybe just what he needs.I agree Alphie, wil he play him in a 442 with a strike partner.

No news on Sturridge City81, reports are that he wants 40,000 a week, but I would suggest that sort of manoey is reserved for someone who already had a proven record in the premier and is a regular in a starting 11, not someone still learning his trade.

TBH for sure, thought Johnson may have gone somewhere and wasn't there talk of Vass. Surely we can't keep paying wages to Berti (sorry Buzz know you have this thing about seeing him) for much longer.

If Sturridge is asking for 40k I would suggest he and his agent have a headbang, look at the financial state of the country and then announce that they're taking a reality cheque. Hope a contract gets signed tho'.

Jo would benefit greatly from a run of games. I predict he will do well. He has only started 6 games for us, its not enough. Look at how Utd stuck by Berbatov and now they are reaping the rewards as he gets his confidence. A loan move is ideal, but I do wonder if a run in our team would be better. We missed aerial presence yesterday, and he certainly has that.

this will be perfect for Jo and will finally decide if he can make it in the prem......
