Disaster at VMC legend Buzz Lightyear's household as his Gelson Fernandes Fan Club must now officially close. And it's Saint Etienne who have signed the Swiss midfielder...
From headless chicken to headless poulet? Well, this will be one of the first inevitable departures from Eastlands this month.
The fee is undisclosed, but I'd wager we've taken a hit on the player.
Gelson signed for City amid the frenzied month that Svennis had two summers ago to bolster a squad of relegation certs.
He was full of energy and ran around like a mad thing, but all too often, he'd dive in late and face the consequences which quite often destabilised the team's plans.
Gelson's reknowned as a nice bloke and nobody would deny that he didn't give it his best.
We wish him well in Ligue 1 with Les Verts.
