Marcos Senna

Premier League Manchester City

comment on the article

When I read this, I was floored.

If we could get him it would be amazing. One of the best DMs around and could probably help to sort out the Brazilians, and would be a natural choice to captain the side. 32, but IMO better than Torsten Frings. One of the best players at the Euros.

I hope so...

we could then move Kompany back into defence where he plays better with Zab, Bridge/ Lescott and Richards/Dunne/new defender

The first time Hughes decides to stop beingdefensive and negative and play gung-ho football, they are 4-0 up at half time.

Elano back in the team, Vassell gone, things improve immediately.

Sack him now for proving us all right.

Senna i s a very good player.

Lets keep playing the same team. 5-1 against Hull City, 6-0 against Pompie and 3-0 against Arsenal.It could be a good season.

Senna would make you guys a lot harder to beat, he could be as important a signing as Makalele was to Chelsea. With Villareal still in the champions league and doing well in the the league it will have to be an astromonical bid to secure the 32 year old.
If I was Mark Hughes I would be doing all I could to sign this guy, no matter the cost, A world class player like him might just save his job. I think it would take a bid of 18 million plus, same as the fee Chelsea paid for Makalele, to secure his signing.

Ps. 4 goals in three days for Caciedo, looking like a nice present from Sven, you say what you like about Sven but he would have attracted big names to city

Why would Senna give up CL football to join us at this stage ? If it is what BlueMoonWalker suggested "I saw this on SSN earlier sounds to me as if he is looking for a large pay packet before he retires." Do we want him ? If it's because he sees us as a new challenge... bring him on, the man is class.

So are we to refuse anyone who only wants to come here for the money? Lets face it, would anyone truly world class want to come to us if it WASNT for the money??

Senna would be a great signing but whats also needed is a centre back and a left back moreso a leader on the pitch that can inspire Dunne has lost it and should be carted out!

senna is 32, why waste money on him, when he needs time to adjust(remember he is brazilian) and by the time he does he will be like hamman, mentally aware, physically out of fuel

Good performance.

You have to applaud Phil Brown for roasting his side on the pitch. Maybe that is what all managers should do from time to time.

id have phil brown for england any day. he has balls. and he gets his side to play football rather than the disgrace that is stoke city, who go out to injure. brown for england:P, not that capello is bad but had steve mclaren been sacked from england just now, id be rallying brown for the job.
