Return Of The City Trio: The Real News

Return Of The City Trio: The Real News

Whilst the obvious transfer rumours have been taking up the headlines, it is a trio of less sensational stories that have caught my attention.

Apparently, Benjani is the man to take the pressure off former City player Gary Megson. With Elmander and Davies not exactly tearing up trees, Gary believes Benji can revitalise Bolton for the second half of the season in an attempt to avoid the drop and save his bacon at the same time.

The good news for the Trotters is that the Zimbabwean's 'track' record is much better than his airport one, so he might make the medical on time!

Also according to the Red Tops and Darren Lewis, Harry Rednapp is still not happy with a Spurs side that obliterated Wigan NINE - one in the league.

He wants to sure up the Londoners defence and is back in for Micah after apparently being knocked back three years ago.

Is Micah the right man to sure up any defence and do we really want to sell him?

Three bits of good news that have come out of the Official site this week have all centred around returning Blues.

Both Vincent Kompany and Michael Johnson played the full ninety minutes on Monday night against Blackburn and are looking forward to making an impact on the Blues push for a Champions League spot.

The Belgian international volunteered for second-string duty on Monday night after his recent lay-off and said...

'I finally got 90 minutes to run around and make some tackles and I really enjoyed it. I made a lot of good, strong challenges, which is a big part of my game.'

'I'm looking forward to pushing for a first-team starting place. The competition doesn't bother me. I'm just as much competition to the others. I hope to be in there in the near future.'


The biggest news perhaps is the return of record signing of Robinho, who is fit and ready to play some part against Hull City. The game couldn't have come at a better time for the Brazilian magician as it is at home and against the team he was on top form against last year.

It will be an important period in the trios Blues' careers as all three are fans favourites and quality players, but all three find themselves playing second fiddle to arguably inferior but in form players.

Robinho, undoubtedly in the top three left sided players in the world, will find it hard to wrestle a starting place from Craig Bellamy on the left as the fiery Welshman has performed well in every match this year.

Vincent Kompany, courted by Barcelona, can play effectively in defensive midfield or in the back two, but has top performer De Jong  and captain Kolo Toure in his path, not to mention club darling Nedum Onuoha.

Michael Johnson when fully fit is without doubt our most complete midfielder, but gone are the days when we can afford to give a potentially great player a steady run in the side and with Barry, Ireland and Tevez playing the attacking roles in midfield, Johnno has to be very patient, keep in shape and await his chance.

One things for sure, and that is all three would get in most teams in the Premier League and that can only be great news for Mark Hughes and the rest of the campaign.

Its good news that most of our players are now back from injury and Hughes will soon have even bigger selection problems than usual.
