Btw, I'm into both soccer and NFL, and NFL is no way a sissy sport... You have no idea how strong NFL players are. Getting sack by a linebacker without wearing equipment might be the end your life.
To be fair, Man City have gone all out many times, and failed many times, before Man U.

Well, Man U are still big and can bring in the best men available if they want to.

I cannot remember the last time man utd signed a player who was an already established world beater. This is a magnificent signing but it still doesn't close the gap between them and City, who, can count on Tevez, Aguero, Dzeko & Balotelli upfront whereas they only have Rooney, Hernandez, Welbeck & Van Persie, with only RVP good enough to get into the City starting eleven. And don't forget the gulf in quality between their respective goalkeeping, defensive and midfield units.

Still, an amazing signing, but, where were the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Man City? Sure, he's 29 years old, but it's not as if he's reliant on his pace and he seems to have curtailed his injury woes over the last year or so. £23M is just right for a player who will be servicable at the top level for another 3-4 years.

Great signing for them. Provides them with a goal threat that Welbeck and Hernandez just can't match. They only lost the league to Man City by 1 goal after all.

Lost his confidence after a miss? Lots of players have missed great chances, it happens. Careers don't go down the pan because of it

He's 29 which is the only worry for them but he's just came off his greatest ever season so it's got to be considered a great deal until proven otherwise.

Andy Carroll & Stewart Downing = £55m
