Another signing - still no defender

City signed another loan player yesterday ahead of the FAC replay with Stoke, with Arsenal youngster Jay Emmanuel Thomas joining the Bluebirds until the end of the season.

I don't know too much about JET (as I will call him because his name is too long to keep typing in full) but seems to be a pretty versatile player in an attacking midfield, winger or forward role. He has started for Arsenal first team at Premiership and Champions League level, so clearly is a talented player who old vinegar face Arsene Wenger has seen something in.

He's tall - something City lack in parts, so that will be a bonus.

There's still no sign of a defender coming in though - lots of rumours, but no real action, and given that the defence seemed, and continues to seem the most problematic area, we really need to get our skates on and get someone in before the transfer window slams shut. Unless DJ's philosophy is going to be, it doesn't matter how many they scores, we'll score more.

If only.
