I can't believe the articles circulating from 'former City stalwart' Danny Mills on the subject of Adam Johnson.
First of all in what capacity is Mills considered a 'stalwart'? Second, why is he suddenly enabled to comment on things Manchester City?
He is busy telling 'talk rubbish' that Johnson isn't a Mancini type player and will struggle to command a regular place in the team.
Mr Mills, when everybody is fit everybody will struggle to command a regular place in the team. That is what Manchester City is now about. You don't work and you don't get a game. Adebayor is discovering that, so is Given, so is Richards, so is Lescott. You get injured you have to fight your way back.
Mills then goes on to say that Johnson is an impact player. We know that and most of the time impact players make an impact 20 minutes from the end coming on as a replacement. No harm in that for Adam.
He finally goes on to say that we lack a 20-25 goal a season striker. How many did Tevez get last season and he's not even an out-and-out striker. I probably agree with him to some extent on that one but despite my earlier discomforts, Balotelli could be the man.
The only thing he doesn't say is that when he 'played' for us City didn't have a right back. He was either injured or not injured and not playing.
I distinctly remember a conversation I had with him when he probably wasn't fully injured and wasn't fully fit and couldn't get a game. He was probably on good money for that time having actually played for England and when asked if he was disappointed that he wasn't in the team his answer was 'football isn't everything'.
Well Mr Mills in the words of the esteemed Reginald Perrin's gaffer CJ - you didn't get where you are today by not playing football. As you try to develop some sort of credible career out of punditry, please remember that.
