We've had a lot of awesome strikers come through the past few years. Robinho, Adebayor, Jo, etc., etc. All may have been good where they were but none of them did much with City. Of course the other positions are much improved than before, but Jo and Adebayor played last year and sucked it up. If this deal goes through, I hope this guy is better than those guys.Mmmm Silva, Toure and Johnson feeding the passes to Eto'o sounds amazing...
i agree eto,o is a great striker but he goes missing for large parts of games. he hasnt got the work rate of tevez imhoEto'o is one of the best strikers in the game and has been for years. I'd say he's right there with Messi when it comes to quickest feet and keeping the ball on his feet through traffic. He's a stud and seems to still be fit enough to play his position day-in and day-out in the EPL. That would be a great signing by City.

Fair enough but Sanchez isn't a striker, he's a play maker. Very much like Robben before he learned to shoot a couple of years ago IMO. Sanchez, Silva and Tevez as a free ranging forward line is pretty gnarly. Someone else other then Toure is going to have to show some goal scoring from midfield though to keep opponets honest if Mancini runs it as a 4-3-3.I reads that City is not interested in him. They tried to get him a couple years ago and he hosed gthem then. Word is that they don't want to deal with trying to get him now. Plus I think they are still hoping for Sanchez, whether Tevez leaves or not.
