Woah, hang on a minute, Roque Santa Cruz cost Man City how much?!

Ollie Irish

50857.jpg£18m! Really? What the what?! (Yes, I am a bit late to this.)
I guess Mark Hughes has a major man-crush on Santa Cruz, then, otherwise he’d have wised up to the fact that the striker is worth … ooooh … let’s say more like £6m. Great deal for Blackburn, this.
Don’t you think Peter Crouch would be a good fit for City instead? (Translation: I do think Crouchinho would be ideal.)

    Ollie, you rock.

  5. Shel says:

    Santa Cruz scored 23 goals in the EPL 07/08 season. Last year he was injured. We pay what we pay because we can afford it. How much did Utd pay for Valencia? Utd paid £16m (Wigan bought him for £4m) LOL! Valencia scored 4 goals TOTAL! Ha ha ha ha ha. Get off City’s dick you cnut!

  6. Ollie says:

    Shel, I didn’t say Roque wasn’t a good player. He is. But I think £18m is way too much to pay for him.
    Crouch for £10-12m would have been a better option, in my opinion.

  7. Ala says:

    Crouch misses a sitter almost every match. As a Portsmouth fan I need this entertainment!

  8. Rovers fan says:

    Santa Cruz is top class. If he remains injury free, he’ll be City’s best player next season. As a Rovers fan, I’m gutted he’s left but obviously money means a club can attract the best players.

  9. kaya says:

    I’d pay 18 million for him. But it wouldn’t be to play football…

    Handsome but a tosser.

  11. Blah Blah Blah says:

    in fairness sants cruz is way too injury prone. he’s only ever scored 10 or more goals once in a season since he’s been in europe, either because of injury or form. one good season does not make you a top striker. i always knew city were gonna pay over the odds for him, but i thought 10m not 18m. ollie is right, he’s worth about 6m, 10m at the most (but he is better than crouchy for sure). city were ripped off but so were united for berbatov so they cant say sh1t

  12. K says:

    Oh Bitters, shut up. You all know that he’s not worth 16mil. Stop making excuses.
    He’s not worth 16mil, you spent 16mil. Whatever, does it matter? You’ve got the money.
    The fact that you’re shit however, can’t be changed by a billion in the bank.
