This is more than a rumour Eddie, and we need to discuss a fair bit about Anelka.

Well It will be a big big blow to Man City, especially as he is the one saving them at times.
Not really, we play better without him IMO. Without him we went from 14th in the League to 9th, so theres obviously progress. The lad hasn't scored from open play since September. Out of his 7 goals this season 3 were penalties and one was a free kick. I feel he is a great player, but does not fit into our side. Ever since ANelka was injured in November we're played much better, and Robbie Fowler has looked like his old self. Whilst I don't advocate selling him, its not a blow. I'd like him to stay as the squad is small and if things are going badly we can send him on or replace Macken or Fowler if they're out of form. That said, we do need a replacement cos the squad is so small. We cannot rely on Fowler/Macken/BWP at the moment, as only Fowler is premiership-class to be honest.

Anelka is a cock for the way he treated City and the fans, but is a good player. I wish him look at Fener and thank him for what he did for City, establishing us in the Premiership, but he has been a liability for a year now. He has not scored many goals since limping off against Spurs in January 2004, and our survival was not down to him. When the chips were down it was Fowler and Macken who stood up and were counted. Look at the results we've achieved with these two up front:

City 4-1 United
Spurs 3-4 City
Arsenal 1-1 City
Portsmouth 1-3 City

These were good results that stand out, but there have been other great performances and wins that have stood out because we played well throughout, even if the result doesn't flatter us, 2-0 vs. Villa, 2-1 vs. Southampton, Chelsea 0-1 (dominated but lost), Bolton 3-1, Palace 3-1, Southampton 2-0.

So you can see we can do without Anelka, but need another striker. Maybe trade Bellamy for Distin and a few mil.

Champions League football innit? Maybe if he finished the one on ones he gets every match we'd win enough matches to qualify for the champions league.

I say bring in Bellamy

Yup, you're right Schumy. I don't mean to offend them, but Fener is a step down. It is an inferior league and he is joining a side who will get 6 games in the CL a season. At least at City he'd be playing big teams several times a season and could still get in the UEFA Cup, where Fener will be next season after they come 3rd in their group.

Do you think Anelka will ever be able to stay at a club for a decent period of time? He's constantly moving!

No. If he thinks City are too small for him, I doubt he'll stay with Fener for too long, as they don't get far in the CL. That said, he has matured, even if he is still a sulky bastard.

Well he's been to more clubs than DJ Bobo :pp ,The guy think's his sh*t don't smell.City are a great club,I simply don't see why he'd want to go to Fenerbahce for.KK is a great manager and motivator and playing in the Premiership is so exciting,Changing clubs every 6 months won't help your career then again this guy is something else.
