Jovetic to City is awesome news for me

1) He doesn't go to the hated Juventus
2) We get the full sum we asked (thank you sheikhs) instead of 20+sum scrub

Farewell Stevan, I hope you do welll... just because of the 4 million euro in add-ons that that would bring us.

Congratulations on Mario Godmez. As much as I don't like to see him play for Germany because of the system, I hope he does well at Fiorentina. They'll be my bandwagon team in the Serie A this coming season. I think he'll hit the 30 goal mark. He's been starved last season.

I like how you said "just because", pointing out it's not one of the reasons you wish him well, it's the only reason.

Another bad signing for City. Not that Jovetic is a bad player for them, but he doesn't fit with the rest of their offensive talent. I really hoped with Pellegrini as the manager and a couple of former Barcelona guys at the helm City would show a bit more restraint or at the very least a sense of common identity on the team.

Indeed
Jojo is a very good player but: the way's he's held his leg back this season in view of a transfer... the apparently very low pain threshold that makes him miss at least 25% of the matches every season... and above all the infamous interview of a few weeks ago in which he basically said "I can't wait to be managed by Conte in Juve"... That's something Fiorentina fans cannot ignore.

Dude's got immense talent though. If he stays fit and if he's used the right way, he's a crack.
He's very much like Mutu tactically speaking, if someone remembers him.
He can play all positions in the offense but first of all he's a second forward and needs to play alongside a striker. That's how he will get you 15-20 goals and 10 assists.
But I read City formations in which he's the left winger in a 4-2-3-1. Not sure what you can get from him that way.

Lebowski and the other Spanish residents: do you think Joaquin can be used as the RW in a 3-5-2?
I am sure he has the tools but I wonder if he can keep the required pace at 32.

Montella explicitly said he's gonna switch through formations but he will always keep a 3-men midfield, so basically if Rossi is good it'll be a 3-5-2:

NETO
Munua

RONCAGLIA - GONZALO - SAVIC
Tomovic - Hegazi - Compper

CUADRADO - AQUILANI - PIZARRO - VALERO - PASQUAL
Joaquin? - Mati/Vecino - Ambrosini - Vecino/Wolski - Alonso

GOMEZ - ROSSI
Jakoveno - Ljajic


Otherwise a 4-3-3:

NETO
Munua

TOMOVIC - GONZALO - SAVIC - PASQUAL
Roncaglia - Hegazi - Compper - Alonso

AQUILANI - PIZARRO - VALERO
Mati/Vecino - Ambrosini - Vecino/Wolski

JOAQUIN - GOMEZ - CUADRADO
Jakovenko - Rossi - Ljajic

City have assembled an amazing squad now. Best in the league imo. Chelsea are close but we need to improve our central midfield.

Hart
Zaba - Kompany - Nastasic - Clichy
Toure - Fernandinho
Navas - Jovetic - Silva
Aguero

Bench - Dzeko, Nasri, Milner, Garcia, Rodwell, Richards, Lescott

vs.

Cech
Azpi - Ivanovic - Luiz - Cole
Ramires - Mikel
Mata - Oscar - Hazard
Lukaku

Bench - Torres, Ba, De Bruyne, Schurrle, Essien, Lampard, Terry



Can't say much about United yet, they haven't done much in the transfer market. I'm sure they've got some big signings to come and will be back up there with the best squad by season starts.
