Dzeko Signing: A Huge Step In The Right Direction
Vital Manchester City member, Daniel Grigg sent us the following.
With the signing of Edin Dzeko (for the first time since the signing of David Silva), one can finally see a real direction to what Manchester City are looking to achieve.
In my opinion Roberto Mancini has seen a flaw in his team and tried to rectify by filling it with what many of us think is the perfect man to help City's push for the title.
Dzeko reminds me a little of Alan Shearer - with his power, ability to score tonnes of goals with regularity and most importantly the fact that he's more dependable. In other words that puts the Bosnian way above Mario Balotelli and Emmanuel Adebayor in terms of their importance to the club and pecking order.
If Peter Crouch has 'good feet for a big man', then Edin Dzeko's footwork can only be called truly fantastic. This was made abundantly clear against Wolves yesterday with a wonderful bit of skill in the second half and then an excellently weighted through ball for Yaya Toure to strike past goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.
Comparisons can be made to Dimitar Berbatov in terms of ball control and shot power, while the former Bayer Leverkusen striker's success in the Premier League should remind everyone that Dzeko, having recently signed from Wolfsburg, is likely to continue the form he showed for the Bundesliga club.
I truly have the faith in Edin's ability. Do you?
