Great signing, certainly a statement by the club and his capture should pave the way for a few other world class players. Regarding Yid from India's comments, do you think anyone signing for you is motivated by football? You've won much less than City and your potential is far lower.

Now City will be hated just as much as Chel$ea and rightfully so. Yes you guys should have the right to sign great players and challenge the top 4, but what you guys are doing and what Chelsea did is stupid. Is Barry worth 120,000 a week?? WTF 120,0000 for Barry? Then what is Garrard, Torres, Rooney, Lady boy, Messi and Kaka going to ask for 260,0000 a week? Are you guys ruining football? Yes. Not because you guys dare to challenge the top4 but because you guys have to pay over the odds like Chelsea to get good players in to make up for the lack your prestige and CL football at your club. I’m not jealous at your clubs spending power cause just like Chelsea some players just won’t come to your Club no matter how much money you throw at them because some players would rather say they played in a Milan, Barca, Liverpool and ManU shirt not “I played in a City shirt.”

eightsin - "You've won much less than City and your potential is far lower". Come on mate look at the stats before opening your mouth. Although I agree that with city's millions it looks like you're gonna leap frog us, everton and villa in the 'near' future and might break up the top 4 monopoly (about time too). Although I think it does set a bad presidence to pay (reportadly) 100-120k a week for a slightly better then average player with probably 3 good years left in him. In terms of long term sustainability of any sucess I think that's slightly worrying...

This is GREAT news. Barry is a top professional who will make our midfield the most formidable in the Premiership. Now we need to sort out the defence -- and get a goal machine in! Oh and by the way, all Villains coming on here giving it rice about this transfer: just ask yourself a question. Why is it most of you have been expecting Barry to leave for more than a year? Then try laying that turnip on Man City's doorstep. Villa losing Barry has as much to do with Villa as it does with City.
