Football fans, especially Manchester City supporters cannot wait until 1 January 2009. Why I hear you ask? Erm, now let me see.
A new City era began in the summer of 2008 when ADUG bought the club from exiled ex Thai Prime Minister Taxin Shinawatra. New manager Mark Hughes inherited a squad and new players the likes of Jo and Pablo Zabaleta, however just moments away from the summer transfer window closing the club managed to pull off a coup by signing one of the best players in the world, Robinho.
Sparky has been in the hot seat for the best part of five months now. Plenty of time I hear you say, especially when it comes to choosing the players he wants to bring in.
With a transfer kitty reported to be in the region of at least £100million, surely we City fans can expect 2009 to bring in not a hangover, but a wealth of superstars.
Throughout the whole of January the world is going to be watching our beloved club. Please Mark Hughes, don’t let us down.
Dancing the New Year in…and why not!
