It’s one of those strange quirks of football that often sees transferred players make an almost immediate return to their former ground and play against the club that has just sold him.

I’m sure that David James would rather not have returned to Eastlands so soon after he left us for Pompey. There has been a bit of un-necessary banter from both clubs about the move, but I think that’s largely due to the tabloids rather than having any real substance.

Regular VitalCity readers will know I’ve not been the biggest fan of Jamo, but let’s be fair now and acknowledge that David has been one of City’s better players over the last three years and despite the odd gaffe and calamity, you couldn’t fault him for effort and committment.

James’ transfer has also been an astute piece of business for City with the arrival of a young, international ‘keeper, already with 40 plus caps.

So, when Jamo appears on Wednesday night in an unfamiliar jersey it will be a strange, if not slightly surreal experience.

Let’s give David the welcome he deserves – City fans are the best in the land, so lets show it tomorrow by showing a former Blue the respect he’s earned and deserves.

Having said that, I hope he f**ks up in goals!
