Desperate anti-City brigade hacks who have failed abysmally to derail the City juggernaut have resorted to picking off individual targets. The latest is AJ...
24 year old England international Adam Johnson suffered a dip in form following a serious injury last season yet defied the odds in making the end of season run in that co-incided with a sensational team effort realising a third placed league finish and the FA Cup to the utter dismay of a legion of crestfallen hacks.
Johnson, a brilliant talent with many years on the clock ahead of him, has fronted much of the new season's club merchandising publicity and is a popular figure around a resurgent City squad poised for a first ever Champions League campaign. So why on earth would he consider moves to Everton or Liverpool drearily touted in The Street of Shame?
Roberto Mancini didn't sign AJ from Middlesbrough to make up the numbers. He is still learning and now has a platform to ply his trade alongside the very best in what will be this season a squad rotation based campaign.
The fact is that any move out of the Etihad Stadium now for guaranteed starts on the advice of learned pundits with agendas to pursue would be a ludicrous step down.
