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!!
    Just pleased Jonno went to a northern club. Could of went to London, big city, bright lights, streets are paved with litter & shyte!!

    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..
