Snapshot: Adam Johnson Poses With Man City Shirt

New Man City signing Adam Johnson poses at Eastlands after sealing an £8m move from Middlesbrough. I feel sorry for Boro fans that they have lost their brightest young star, but a Prem club was always likely to call for Johnson, a tricky, two-footed winger in the mould of predecessor Stewart Downing.

But will Johnson get anywhere near City’s glittering first team? I doubt it, save for the odd substitute appearance. And at 22, it’s not like he’s a raw teenager. So, in short, I’m not sure this is the right move for young Adam – it’s a move that reminds me of Scott Parker’s ill-fated move to Chelsea.

Do you think Johnson will be a hit at Eastlands?

    Will he give a monkeys now he has at least 4 times the wages he was on at the Boro? We had a goalkeeper who went to Chelsea for “footballing reasons” & is 3rd choice, never played yet, might not have played for a 2nd or 3rd team yet, might not ever play for Celsea!!
    Saved for a rainy day when the Quotas get inspected!!

    Ha ha, how wrong you were to think young Adam would not feature for Manchester City and that you also thought that this was a wrong move for him. Just about to be selected by Capello for the World Cup too..
