Really, I've been sitting around watching Man city show off the true power of money. They've successfully managed to sign Gareth Barry, Carlos Tevez, Roque Santa Cruz; and now, Emmanuel Adebayor. Gareth Barry was a good signing as he'd add some good experience and leadership in midfield; but its the strike-force I'm worried about. With those three I named there's still Craig Bellamy, Valeri Bojinov, Robinho, Felipe Caicedo and Benjani. They managed to offload Jo and Vassel for now; but you have to wonder if these players and the manager have lost their marbles.

You see, most of these strikers are good enough to be in any first team and with that said I don't think any of them would like to warm the bench.  Tevez left Man Utd partly because he was on the bench most of the time. So why join City? Money??, or something new?. Whatever the reason may be, Man City do have a lethal strike force. Which leads me to Mark Hughes, has he gone crazy with all the money he just signs any big name he can find. I just hope he's good enough to manage the various players and ego's in this new squad of his. Players want to play, you can give them money, but it'll only satisfy them for so long e.g Shaun Wright-Phillips leaving Chelsea. I also hope Mark Hughes watches the mistakes from Real Madrid's Earlier 'Galacticos' that team fell apart and too many single minded players is a problem. Good luck to you though Mark.
