Sven adds another!

Sven adds another!

Bulgarian international, Valeri Bojinov, today became City's eighth signing of the summer and fourth in just two hectic days.

Bojinov, 21, joins the blues from Italian side Fiorentina in a four year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Bojinov holds the record as the youngest ever overseas player to debut in Serie A when he appeared for Lecce at the age of just 15 years and 11 months.

Bojinov's arrival probably completes one of the more hectic weeks in City transfer history following yesterday's signings of Elano, Garrido and Carluka.

Going down the imported multi national route, a la, portsmouth, bolton etc. Hope it works, should be a lot of badge kissing etc.

Eddie .... the difference in the City approach is that the average age of all 8 imports is in the region of 23. Unlike the imports at the aforementioned clubs these players have everything to prove rather than just looking for a last payday. I hope it works.

Ronin, these are internationals, which if you look at it play a premiership class of football, Svennis has had to go abroad for his players as here they have priced themselves out of the market, and the good thing is, even though we have the money, we will not be blackmailed into over the odds purchases, Someone pointed out the comparison between Richardson and Petrov, Petrov looks the part and whilst I dislike Rednose, he is not going to let anyone leave the swamp if they had any potential. The point now is that we have cover inb all areas, it is down to the players we have to show the manager why they should be picked and that can only be good for us, they will be out there giving all, if they want to part of the team, if not adios amigo, or whatever language they happen to speak as they go through the exit door to the job centre.

DD, I hope one of them is a goalie, Carson. I still think we need a class Central Defender for Distin. and a Mike Doyle type guy in midfield, this part I expect Johnson to fill, but needs a season or two more to mature, blend in gently not burn him out.

I think Corluka will be the ideal replacement for Distin and at 21 he already has experience in the Champions League and at International level.

well if ya think about it i think isaksson is a great goalkeeper being honest wit ya and i think he will do the thricks for us and i did think gettin rid of distin was stupid cos i though he had a brillant sesason for us he had his ups and downs but they were mostly ups

I thought Corluka was a right back? Going to be an interesting season ahead. Going to take 6mths for these players to settle in, then we will see
