    Just because 1 deal didn't work out it doesn't mean he was taking bungs.

    And Cornelius wasn't a nobody. He is playing in the champions league now even after a terrible injury, what are we doing?

    He was bought for 7m. The amount of hysteria on cardiff forums over the deal was ridiculous

    Good grief.

    So because Cornelius seems to be playing ok now means he was a great deal at the time?

    Cornelius was a nobody really AT THE TIME WE BOUGHT HIM.

    Cornelius was handed the number 9 shirt - yes, numbers aren't as relevant as in the past but that was a clear indicator he was bought for the first team.

    Mackay bigged him up; only to then claim he was a "project". He knew he'd bought a pup. If it had been a £1m signing then sure, keep him as a project. Billing him as the main man? C'mon, it was a bad buy.

    Even now, every game this season for Atalanta he's either been brought off the bench or has been substituted during the game. He's failed to play the full 90 minutes in a single game for them this season.

    He's not some prodigy we missed out on. He's somebody bought for a large fee ( not his fault ), who was lauded by the manager ( not his fault ) and turned out to not be good enough ( again, not his fault due to the fee and being bigged up ). He's someone we couldn't afford to carry on a reported 45k a week hoping he'd come good.

    Deserves everything he's getting (apart from the job roles ofc)

For £8m it was a silly signing, especially making him captain. Medel was billed as being a midfield dog. Some neat stuff at times but disappeared the second half of the season, no doubt saving himself for Chile - he's now playing in Turkey.

    I'd have preferred us to have addressed the issues we had - ie get a pacy winger or two. The best player we had in the squad at the start of the season was injury prone Mutch.

    Warnock has assembled a more rounded, more flexible squad for a fraction of the money spent by Mackay.
    At the time Steven Caulker was being touted as a future England captain, people were creaming themselves when he signed. Medel was seen as a fantastic signing, who went on to play for Inter so he must have been half decent (Are you really surprised a defensive midfielder performed worse when we stopped defending?)

    We played with hard workers, much like Burnley do now, we never had electric pace and flair but it was seen as the best way of keeping us up and most people would have agreed at the time

    Absolute rubbish

    Transfer fees have inflated in the last 4 years yet Burnley have spent nowhere near the 40m Tan gave Malky to spend. Probably the equivalent of 70/80m now.

    Hull bought Premiership experience for a fraction of what we spent that summer and stayed up comfortably. Palace too.

    The guy is an absolute fraudster. Found wanting at every club heís been at bar City where he had an open chequebook.

    Seems like, as is often the case on here these days, I was talking to myself.

    So. to answer my own question, Dave Jones' teams could be expansive at times, but I think the most enjoyable attacking football I've seen from a City team since 2000 came from Lennie Lawrence's 2003/04 team when they were on song.

    There's some bull in this thread and people with convenient and selective memories.

    The guy that signed off on the money was employed specifically to do the checks and balances & due diligence and his experience working in hotels was great really pertinent. No written out of history ...

    Malky is the best we have ever had. Loyal to his players and too good for our owner. If malky dud anything wrong he apologised. He has never been officially charged with anything to date. and finally the comments Malky made anout VT pale into insignificance compared to the bile and disgusting chanting aimed at VT that went on in the stands every week during the rebrand debacle period

    Loyal to his players? Bombed Conway out to Blackburn, yet had to use him end of season. Bombed Gestede out to Blackburn too, loan with perm deal set.

    If your defence of his racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-semitic comments was that our fans are similar... eh...

    What chants?

    Half the fanbase just rolled over and let it happen

    Tan walked all over what was supposed to be a passionate supported club

    He's made good now so it's a clean slate as far as I am concerned

    Apart from the daft little dragon on the badge
