If people are going to financially set for life in their early twenties it’s natural that one or two of them will just stop putting the effort in.

Basically every player signed by City after that first buyout.

Bojinov, Benjani, Martin Petrov, Bianchi, Caicedo etc. :snigger:

Indeed, plus Michael Johnson was supposed to be the next big thing but he retired a couple years ago didn't he?

Remember when at the end of Sven's season there and they lost 8-0 at Boro.

Was that the game Afonso Alves scored a hat trick? He's another who has faded into obscurity although his claim to fame was having a brilliant goals to games ratio of 1:1 at Herenveen.

Who was the Paraguayan striker signed for City by that cunt? He fell off the map as well.

RSC, not the Royal Shakespeare Company but Roque Santa Cruz.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.

That was it. He was certainly a one season wonder.

Think we'll be adding Bony to this list.

Wasn't he called Vagner love because he loved putting it about and had a sex tape?

Not sure if he had a sex tape, but the nickname game from his prowess with the ladies

Apparently he was King gooser even when he was at youth team age!
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!
