City Stuff

City beat AFC Bournemouth in the 1st round of the Carling Cup last night with 2 goals from Paul Parry. Dave Jones fielded a decent side, presumably because he wants to get his players up to competitive match fitness asap.

[Breaking News: Having triumphed over the Cherries, City will entertain the might MK Dons in round 2. That'll be one to look forward to...]

In other news, rumours, nay confirmation that City have received bids (note the plural) for Glen Loovens our highly rated Dutch centre back. Word has it that Rangers (again) and Celtic are amongst the pack, but whether anyone's yet come close to the alleged £3m asking price isn't clear. What does appear to be clear is that he's yet to sign a new contract despite having been offered one. I'd be sorry to see him go (as would my daughter who's not into football but loves Loovens - she's 11) - I reckon he's one of the best central defenders in the Championship, but that as they say is football and sooner or later they all go.
