Since moving to Manchester City in the summer of 2007, ‘Super- Swede Sven’ has spent more than £30m on buying 10 new players.

Splendid Or Stupid?

Given the opportunity, how would you rate Sven’s purchases?

Rolando BIANCHI – Italian born striker. Signed from Reggina for £8.8m.

GEOVANNI – Brazilian midfielder. A free signing from Cruzeiro.

ELANO – Brazilian attacking midfielder. Signed a four-year contract from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Gelson FERNANDES – Cape Verde midfielder. Signed from Swiss side FC Sion in July 2007.

Martin PETROV – Bulgarian attacking midfielder who is described as a talented left-winger. Petrov arrived from Athletico Madrid in a £4.7m deal.

Javier GARRIDO – Spanish defender. £1.5m signing from Real Sociedad.

Vedran CORLUKA – Defender born in Bosnia & Herzegovina. Sven-Goran Eriksson’s sixth signing after he put pen to paper on a five-year deal.

Valeri BOJINOV – Bulgarian striker. Joined from Fiorentina for an undisclosed fee.

Felipe CAICEDO – Ecuadorian striker. City paid Basle £5.2m for his services.

BENJANI – Zimbabwean Striker. City paid Portsmouth £3.87m, a fee that could rise to £7.6m depending on appearances.

Benjani very nearly didn’t sign after reportedly falling asleep at the airport, missing his flight and subsequent medical.

Over to you. What do you think?
