This was always going to be controversial but Craig Bellamy has signed for City on a four year deal from The Hammers…

The much travelled 29 year old was bought for an undisclosed fee but the result of a fourth bid for his services is thought to be in the region of £14 million. Of course that is seriously steep considering he will be 30 this year and cannot be described as prolific.

The Wales International brings more baggage than Ringway with him, but we are going to have to come to terms with it and trust Mark Hughes’ judgement at a crucial phase in our season.

This personally disappointed correspondent’s chief concern is what effect the signing of a striker heading into his 30’s will have upon our Academy forwards, most notably the yet to sign on Daniel Sturridge.

Let’s see who Hughes drops at his expense for Newcastle.

Still, it’s never a dull moment at Manchester City regardless of who’s in charge and Bellamy’s controversial signing is no exception.
