UF Quick Throw: Citeh Land Carlos Tevez

Tevez to Manchester City is now a done deal subject to a medical. If the Adebayor transfer goes through as well, we can only guess this means that Citeh is hording strikers like a James Bond villain ("All the world's strikers are mine, mine, MINE...bwahhhahaha").

That gives them Robinho, Santa Cruz, Tevez and who else? Bellamy, Caicedo? Jo back out on loan. Vassell gone.

Tevez - Santa Cruz
Robinho - Ireland - Barry/de Jong - Wright Phillips/Elano
Bridge - Richards - Kompany/Dunne - Zabaleta
Given

Not a bad lineup.

I'm going to laugh if Carlito gets the shaft like he did at ManU.

He didn't want to go to Liverpool out of respect for the United Supporters - how are they going to feel now that he's at City?

Also Bojinov and Benjani, although both probably on their way out the door.

But if Citeh nabs Adebayor, that's five players (Robinho, Santa Cruz, Tevez, Ade and Bellamy) vying for two starting roles. Not even SAF could juggle that one.

I thought Tevez wanted to play for a top flight team, but in the end it's his decision.

doesn't robinho play winger for brazil and played it for madrid? I imagine he could slide over to make it a bit easier.

bellamy is certainly gone as well as bojinov (although he will probably be on loan). i have a hard time believing they will sign adebayor.

now that Tevez is there (and I don't think they'll sign Ade) - Robinho will play on the left wing in an attacking Ronaldo like role cutting inside - RSC and Tevez will play up front doing the dirty work. There is room for all three. The only odd man out is Bellamy - who actually looked like a great player for some stretches last year at both WH and City - but at the end of the day, is fucking mental.

Bellamy will land on his feet somewhere in the EPL, the others I'm not so sure. I still wish Rafa hadn't sided with Riise over Bellamy, could have used a decent backup striker last year.

Bellamy looks like he's going to Spurs.
