Fortune's a changing

Fortune's a changing

Now I'm trying not to be overly negative about City's potential transfer targets, but all the warning signs are here for a disatrous acquisition.

There is a lot of speculation that Quinton Fortune is about to join City, which I think is cause for concern. A deal for him to join Celtic has just collapsed rather suddenly after Celtic stalled to review Fortune's medical situation - alarm bells sounding already !

Now poor old Quinton didn't have the happiest of times at United; a fringe player at best and his career was blighted by bad injuries - not his fault, but after enduring last season during which we seemed to have the worst injury run in living memory, why do City appear so keen to sign Fortune up on a two year deal, and probably on big wages, when the liklihood is that he'll be spending a lot of time on the injury list with Reyna and a few others I could mention.

Do Celtic know something City don't?

It's all very worrying :-(

Well I suppose there's no need to bother with the facts then, he had a medical at Celtic, some stuff happens we can ignore, he's not with Celtic. He had injuries at united but he's fit now. We were going to offer him the ... no hang on we're not bothering about the facts are we? fact 1. Celtic offered him a 1 year deal. If he's going to buy a place in Glasgow he wants more than 1 year. fact 2. City are also offering a 1 year deal. He already lives in the North West so wouldn't have to move house. fact 3. Bolton too are offering a 1 year deal. I don't know about wages. I suspect we wouldn't break the bank for him. Same with Dabo who, despite earlier wailing and gnashing of teeth turns out not to have signed for anyone yet... odd that...

The fact is that Fortune is injury prone

Who is speculating about the signing ? I am sure Psycho will not sign anyone who will not be able to give more than 100% for the Club.

I think u have a definate need to worry if the story is true, cannot say he is a good player anymore becauase good players actually play. Take him on loan til Jan and if all is well then offer him the two year deal now that would be good business 4U.

Can you take a player out of contract on loan? Who would you be loaning him from? What's the difference between a 1 year loan and a one year contract? What planet are you from?

He did not fulfill his potential at Man U amd would probably be successfull in a lower league, but not the Prem.

Agree with you Bluetone - He picks up injuries quite a bit, but not a bad player when he's fully fit - may be worth the risk!
