It was always going to be tough to attract the world's best players to the City of Manchester Stadium for this coming EPL season.

The lack of Champions League football and the early stages 'the project' have apparently created a pregnant pause which is holding the developments back

The press have been strangely quiet, even on the Tevez transfer. But then along came the Eto'o story and it was apparently game on.

Well today has been the cold shower for City and the faithful.

Eto'o has said no to the move, Kaka has said City aren't a big club with history and no other big names are being linked with City.

Apparently the Tevez signing is secured and will be announced shortly.  I do hope so.

Where Mark Hughes and City go next will show us how well developed the the strategy and delivery plans are.

But I fear that it will once again highlight the limitations of having Mark Hughes as manager as that might just be where the real weakness is.
