Sparky's options are getting stronger and the first full 90 minutes in Sky Blue of Roque Santa Cruz underlines City's clear and present danger to our rivals...
Crocky, sorry, Rocky's power in the air was there for all to see as City reached the League Cup Quarter Finals. Himself and Emmanuel Adebayor are giving us the kind of aerial threat that we haven't seen up front since the days of Niall 'Disco Pants' Quinn.
Here's to the affable Paraguayan enjoying the type of City career success to that of the big Irishman, albeit with the trophies Quinny richly deserved for his efforts but never realised:
