Picture: The Meaning Of Useless = Joleon Lescott

Picture: The Meaning Of Useless = Joleon Lescott

Why on earth did Manchester City pay Everton £22 million for Joleon Lescott?

I am a proud Blue and hate to depict a current Manchester City player as anything but someone who walks on water. HOWEVER, Joleon really does need to step up to the mark.

The 28-year-old may have 12 England caps to his name but the second rate centre-back really needs a kick up the backside.

A man of his experience should command the line but instead he allows League One players to run him raged. Yup, I'm thinking of the drawn game against Notts County.

This article is not to demean Joleon but, should he read this then perhaps the following picture should be enough to make him think about where he goes from here.

I for one think Lescott has a City future but the jury, in my opinion is out!

**The hosting company has decided the picture was not appropriate hence i'll add a new one in due course.**

It is very difficult to play one match every month or so and all players need to have regular games to keep up their match fitness, that is why it surprises me that some of these players don't play more reserve team football or are they too good to do that.

Harsh! He's not worth anything like the ridiculous fee we paid following Hughes dogged fight for his signature, but he's far from useless imo.

I see the haters are out in force on the 'who overall deserved to win' poll.

The meaning of "wasting money" more like. Actually thats quite a toughie, especially with the likes of Santa Cruz, Jo, Robinho, Adebayor and Milner all also competing for the accolade.

Harsh to call Lescott useless, he may not be top four quality but he isn't awful. And bluedub, you forgot Owen "The English Patient" Hargreaves, Taibi, and Forlan. :D

Hmm, well I can go one better back to the time when the rags were "buying football" and picking off the best players. Gary Birtles in 1980 for 1.25 mil, a fortune in those days! Flopped horribly for the rags.

Now I know this might get the odd persons back up but we need to get behind our players more. Our songs are pretty rubbish and we are far too cynical. As soon as something bad happens in a game our whole contingent accept defeat. You could see it today at Notts County with 25 minutes left. There is too much riding on the players in my opinion. We are the 12th man but the lack of passion sometimes is woeful. Leicester at home in the last round was a disgraceful turnout and atmosphere and I wouldn't be surpised if its just as bad this time.
