    Who isn't a donkey? Just from a FF point of view you see...
    They could have had David Luiz for 50m to add to that. And Vermaelen.

    The bargain price of 50 million! Surprised more clubs didn't go for him

    Rodwell supposedly had 9 separate hamstring injuries in his first year at Man City. 10 million for a player that's done fuck all for 3 years is a massive gamble.

    Aren't City going to start to have homegrown issues now? Feels like they've let all their English players go.
  • Deleted user 5 August 2014 16:41:07
    To answer my own question, by my calculations City will currently only be able to name a squad of 24, as they only have 6 homegrown players (including Lampard). After January they'll only be able to name a squad of 23.
  • Deleted user 5 August 2014 16:51:05
    That's just in the CL I think, but yes.
  • Deleted user 5 August 2014 16:54:18
    Amazingly yes.

    It feels a bit like a fuck up. It could be I'm missing some young foreign player they've got who counts as homegrown or something.

    Yup, signed in 2012 and has played a total of 0 games in all competitions.
  • Deleted user 5 August 2014 17:18:16
    It doesn't serve any purpose as a rule anyway. If anything it's done English youth more harm as now they get bought up to be token homegrown players in squads that they never get to play in. Meanwhile teams fall over themselves to develop youth players for other countries as if they're young enough, they count as homegrow too!

    Genuinely one of the worst ideas the FA has come up with.

    You know, I've never really thought of it like that, but you raise two very valid points there... it actually is detrimental

    Typical that this evening is where I start experimenting with Tweetdeck, so I end up with like 5 or 6 copies of Lavezzi having a munch in various columns on my monitor, just as my wife walks in...
