Johnno's Season Effectively Over

Johnno's Season Effectively Over



City have been rocked and the Roberto Mancini's options and strength in depth sorely tested by the news that England winger Adam Johnson is knacked for three months...

Ankle ligament damage sustained in training has been confirmed. The timing could not be worse. The closing of the transfer window is imminent, Europa League commitments beckon, the Blues are mired in a second FA Cup replay to lower league opponents and essential ground has been lost in the race for Champions League football.

With a raft of players offloaded on loan and the nosedived Shaun Wright-Phillips now a confirmed wantaway, will Mancio make an emergency move for right sided trickster?

CITY GO TO BRUM ON VMC:

Head for the VMC Match Day Experience Forum for the build up and beyond to City's return to Premier League action away at Birmingham City on Wednesday night.

Mancio has just confirmed what we already know that we have nobody on board like Johnno. This constitutes a hammer blow to our aspirations this season. He has been in fine form.

A big blow, but at least Jonson will now be able to concentrate on his off field activities. No doubt the press will be following him 24 hours a day.

The retention of SWP will not make any difference as his head is not on his football, but maybe it is a good opportunity to blood an academy player? You can never tell what they can do until they get a chance..and they are unknown to the PL managers. Looks like a chance for McDermott. He's done well on his loans to lower league teams, let's see if he can make the grade. He could certainly be an inverse winger on the right, although in the EDT he nearly always plays orthodox.

FFS. His injury couldn't have come at a worse time. Perhaps he might be an influence come April and score the winning goal to secure us a top 4 place.

Rumour on Bluemoon says we're in for Matt Jarvis at Wolves or Santi Cazorla (Spanish international) from Villarreal.

Gotta love rumours. We clearly do need someone with that bit of magic that Johnno brings, but run the risk of having too many players once he's fit again. Jarvis looks OK, and has premiership experience, but I've not seen anything from him to indicate that he's Champion's league level, which is what we've got to be aiming for. Cazorla is lightning fast and can play on either wing (the classic two-footed player), but has already turned down Real madrid, and would take time to adjust to the PL - by which time Johnson will be back! I really do think our best two options would be to either recall Vlad from the SPL if we can, or try to sign Landon Donovan for a few months. Vlad won't cost us anything, and Donovan will bogger off in a few months meaning no selection headaches further down the line. All in all a really not very welcome bit of news, particularly as the injury happened just as AJ was showing top form, and also because it happened during training FFS!
