City rumours

Not a great deal of activity in the transfer market for City so far. Aaron Ramsey has gone to the Gooners for £5m beer vouchers, and David Forde one of a number of 'keepers who have passed through the Bluebirds ranks in the last couple of years has gone to Millwall.

What everyone wants to know though, is are City going to spend any of Ramsey's money on a decent striker? Well, they've had an offer rejected fro Ranger's Kris Boyd (pictured) who they've expressed interest in before, and word on the street is they're prepared to up their £2.5m offer, but don't expect it to be by much. Dave Jones has always said, and to be fair in practice, not gone out and shelled a load of money on a single player - not that we've had much to spend!

Boyd would be a good signing. He topped scored at Ibrox in the last season despite only starting 23 games, and would surely be a huge asset in boosting City's flagging forward line.

It also seems there's still an interest in trying to bring Michael Chopra back to City from Sunderland, a move that would be welcomed by many of the City faithful - me included!

City are apparently trying to get Robbie Fowler to stay on a pay as you play contract. Keeping him at the club would be a big coup, but only if it's not going to break the bank.

In other news, the new stadium is coming along in leaps and bounds, and now looks like it's going to be a football stadium. I drove past it today for the first time in a couple of weeks and it's coming on great guns - the pics on the linked site are a bit behind how it looks now.
