Purse an Owl?

Rumour has it that City's Darren Purse is to sign for Championship rivals Sheffield Wednesday, although the deal is not yet done.

Many people will be glad to see him go - he's proven a liability at times, and his style of football, is, well, crude to say the least.

I've mixed feelings. He's served the club well, proved far more passionate than many, knows his limitations, and has been warming the bench for most of last season. But he wants, regular first team football, and you can't blame him for wanting out.

He proved against the Jacks in our home match against them that he can still perform at this level, though he's too inconsistent for my liking.

If he goes, and he'll surely go somewhere, I wish him well.
