Clichy Completes Man City Move

Clichy Completes Man City Move

So we`ve suffered our first departure of the season, Gael Clichy has swapped North London for Manchester as he switches to rival club Manchester City.

The move has been on the cards for a while after Gael refused to sign a couple of fresh contracts handed to him over the summer.

Whilst some saw Clichy as a bit careless at times he was the last remaining member of the invincibles squad, and our first choice left back.

'I am really happy to be joining such a great club,' he told City's official website.

'I hope I can add to the quality we already have here because we have a fantastic squad who I believe will continue to get better. I can't wait to get started and I think anything is possible with this team.'

I`d usually take this opportunity to wish a player, who was a great member of our squad, good luck at his new club, but seeing as he joined the team that finished one place above us last season, I wish him all the misery in the world at his new club.

Sad to see him go, hopefully he will be the only first-teamer to depart. Best of luck Clichy, just as long you have your customary brain fart against us :-)

i thought he was a true gooner.... just shows how down hill we have gone. granted, he isnt the best defender and gets caught out far too often but Gibbs isnt ready, Traore has never proven himself, and Jenekison or whatever his name is doesnt have any experience..... worrying worrying times

Guys, I'm a blue and have only seen him play a couple of times, I know he's been a regular for your lot, but just wondered how highly, or lowly you actually rate him?

good player, good going forward, cant cross and gets caught behind too easily.... think if it is 7m its a good bit of business for you, will add to the squad but i don't think hes the best defensively.... will need your centre backs to cover

I'm just happy to have a LB with a bit of pace, can see us rotating hime and Kolorov in the PL and CL. Has Wenger finally hit the wall with you guys, or do you think the purse strings are about to open? Lot of players being linked away, same as us...

As a City fan I rerally hope you get Cahill he will fit into your recent tradition (since Graham's unbreachables) of defenders perfectly - slow, turning circle of the Queen Mary, Error prone etc.

Personally I don't think it's much of a lose, I'm much more worried about loosing Cesc/Samir at the moment.

Ass kissing? One asking a genuine question and the other having a pop at Arsenal's defence, where's the ass kissing?
