City Saddled With A Player No One Wants

City Saddled With A Player No One Wants

Vital Manchester City understands that Blackburn Rovers has made NO approach for City striker, Roque Santa Cruz.

On 21 June 2009 Manchester City paid the Ewood Park club £17.5 million for the Paraguay international on a four-year deal, but one of the problems was that City signed him when he was already side-lined with an injury, and when he was finally pronounced fit he simply didn't live up to expectations. Another one of previous Blues boss Mark Hughes blunders.

Once Sparky was out of the way Roberto Mancini soon realised the 29-year-olds future lay elsewhere and loaned the forward back to Blackburn with the understanding they had first dabs on a permanent transfer. Sadly Rovers are prepared to smash their transfer record in their search for a striker this summer but it's not going to be RSC.

City is saddled with another useless player on massive wages and so what should the club do. Perhaps one idea is to terminate his contract by negotiation or sell him off on the cheap.

This disaster alone was worth Sparkless' job, when an obsession with a player goes wrong. Questions have to be asked of those who willingly pursued this player when surely they knew Hughes was mad. Of course we were operating on a different level in 2009 but even then City fans recognized this as madness. At least Lescott, also bought for an obscene fee, has come good and started to pay back his hefty transfer fee with some excellent performances in England's meanest defence last season. But there is no defence for Crocky, we may have to give him away for free.

I think the only people that want Crocky are the ones that run the local glue factory.

Himself and Jo represent City's all time worst business. We can't even rely on Hughes signing him again now!

If Sparky was still boss at Fulham it is doubtful his Chairman Moh would have bought any of his "pets." Or perhaps that is why he is no longer there?
