Bianchi Arrivederci

Bianchi Arrivederci

Breaking news from Italy. Rolando Bianchio is reported to have signed for Lazio in Rome this afternoon...

The deal is understood to be permanent, with City being paid in instalments over three years. The total fee is not yet confirmed.

Bianchi has had fantastic support from the City faithful but has not been able to secure a regular place in the starting line up.

His departure now leaves a glaring hole in an already weakened strike force and Svennis must now move swiftly to reinforce our frontline inside 8 days.

Just got info from L,Unione Sarda website. They say the deal is worth "near 12 million euros" to City which by my calculator is roughly what we paid for him.

at least we have georgie boy as a replacement :-) On a serious note is that the way open for Podolski?

I am really happy for two reasons, first, We did not lose the value of the deal ( there news talking about £10M ), Second, look for another striker, And I think that if Eriksson has no intention to buy striker, did not sell Bianchi.

It's become an unneccessarily heated debate Buzz. The media are having a field day and it's a situation we have been dreading for months where City are in a no win situation because if one bellend shouts out, we'll be portrayed as villains. The fact is the fixture should have been moved at the outset in order to quell the hysteria that has steadily built up. I'm personally reluctant to give the subject much more column width as I'll most certainly risk offending someone and would draw even more attention to the silence/applause debacle and away from the football. That is an important match for us next month and we need points to continue our drive for Europe, but that fact has been already swamped by the "what will the City fans do" furore. On a personal note, the Munich dead should be remembered with respect and dignity and then the football should take centre stage. No matter what any Blue feels about this situation and how united have approached the subject down the years, we are stuck with this match and have to face it with respect and move on.

Back to the striker debate and Sevilla's bad boy Luis Fabiano and one Gerbil Cisse continue to be linked with City. Where was Svennis today? I understand he wasn't at Carrington....
