Straight Outta 'Fleet Street'
Time to put this January Transfer Window into perspective. Swooped, Snubbed, Failed, Stunned and Thwarted shriek the sports hacks headlines...
...and there'll be more to come from 'The Street of Shame*' as midnight on thursday approaches. Are Manchester City clearly not prepared to be held to ransom? Has Frank Shinawatra really got any money? Did Svennis really bid for all these players at a time when major deals are rarely made? Is he still about to pull off a massive transfer coup or is he as fed up with all the media driven specualation as the rest of us?
So here they are. The sensationally 'swooped for' one's that got away or will suddenly be joining us, as the MCFC Aladdin's cave of Frank's loot unleashes itself in a whirlwind of Societe Generale style spending....and don't get me started on the players who are supposed to have left us this month!

MCFC Vital apologises to all football agents and journalists whose exclusively circulated Manchester City signings we have omitted.
