Now that we’ve had some time to digest this past week’s action-packed EPL encounters, I figured this is a good time to share my thoughts with you on some of the key teams:
After many months of speculation as to whether he would join Chelsea, Madrid, Juventus or Manchester United, City finally have landed their man Edin Dzeko who they have been pursuing for quite some time.
Initially expected to cost £50m he came quite fairly priced at £27m, he now joins Carlos Tevez and Super Mario in sharpening City’s forward line. After watching City rely too much on Tevez the whole season, it is hoped that he will be the major determinant whether or not City can win the EPL and Qualify for the Champions league. His arrival clearly hastens the departures of Adebayor, Santa Cruz and Jo. This is a very good purchase made by Mancini if not the best that we have seen since his arrival.
Verdict: Hit or Miss? Big if not super hit.
