Bye-Haim

Manchester City's summer signing Tal Ben-Haim has joined Sunderland on a loan deal that finishes at the end of the season.

I wish Ben-Haim well and hope that he can re-discover the form that he had when he was at Bolton.

Bloody Hell!!!..... does that mean he will be back with us next season.

Wish him well? More like wish Sunderland and his new team-mates well. He's been named as THE player that complained to Gary Cook about MH, so if he's that disruptive then we're well rid. He's not a terrible defender, but he was error prone and short of confidence, not something we need at the moment. Good luck, hope that you do well enogh at Sunderland for them to want to buy you in the summer, because we'd rather you didn't come back.

Why did he goto City again?
LeeCookFan
He was probably promised game time until hughes realised he was so utterly useless. good luck to him though, hopefully sunderland can improve him.

i think its safe to say he is an utter disappointment

The big lummocks had nothing to offer City. Bad buy for us and we need to sell and replace him, not loan him out. Let's just hope we don't get any injuries to Richards or Zabaleta...

Injuries or suspensions to Zab or Micah are both covered, I bet Kompany could play rb at a push, and Onuoha. We still have berti I think. Ben-Haim was signed because Hughes was not sure that Dunney was staying and he needed a CB quickly. Thats why he signed two TBH and Berti. Also Dunney waa suspended at the start of the season and Hughes didn't know what he had, but knew that we were shipping goals and still are.

One of the worst centre halfs I've seen at City, and that's saying something.
Johnny Baguette
Could be something for the off season that JB, a manchester City all time worst XI. I am trying to think of anyone who comes close. Alan Kernagan I didn't rate, but all the others did a reasonable job.except Berti who has to be in there.
Buzz Lightyear
Well if he finds some sort of form at least we may get a half descent return when we sell him in summer.
Doody
he just is not good enough....we are lucky to be able to loan him out....I am surprised anyone in the prem wanted him....!!
lincolnblue
I always rated TBH very highly and still think he's possibly one of the best 50-60 centre backs currently playing in the EPL.

My Dear Mr Baguette, "One of the worst centre halves...." whilst I accept that TBH is yet to be inducted to any City fans hall of fame, tell me that you can recall messrs Brightwell,D; Heslop, G; Johnson,N and indeed Clements,K without giving an involuntary shudder and i will concede that you have a point.

Has he tried to kill anybody at Sunderland yet? He tried to kill Cech at Chelsea!
