The reason Michael Johnson hasnt made any real progress yet is because he has constantly been injured for the last couple of seasons. He is a bit like JV in that respect, showing bags of potential but gets injured far too frequently and its bad injuries not just bumps and bruises.

Shame really as he did look very good and now that City have got the money men in it makes you wonder whether he will ever really play for them again.


Its also because he started drinkin and gambling, and went into a massive downer with debt and health issuses. Moyes may have seen it :P

I'd like to make a request of you Memma. Could you please have a go at Bily in a thread? Maybe he'll piss on your chips too.


oooo Markus you naughty boy.

But i do agree...i hope he starts pulling his fingers from out of his ass. Provide more magic like that one off yday.

However i really think he could do better in the middle behind Saha, playing free, keeping the ball at his feet (which he is good at) and also his slick passing through players could do some damage in the right position. We know he can finish and we also know he has no pace to beat a man running, so do the passing and let Saha run!!

Problem is we already have Cahill and Osman to play off one main striker, we bought Bily as a winger/wide midfield player. I agree about his lack of pace, but although he may not have set the world alight in his first season, his goal/assist return has been pretty good - pretty similar to Felli, in fact, and look how he's improved in his second season after we were all tearing our hair out about him last year.

I think Bily will be fine, he's got great touch and a peach of a left foot, once he's had a proper pre-season and is up to the job physically i think we've got a really good player. And you don't always have to be quick to play out wide, look at beckham.

its Billys first season! yes its frustrating but to see the best of someone you need to give them time and games. Were you all like this last year with Screech? How frustrating has he been!

Same for Rodwell. Moments of brilliance, moments of stupidity, moments of complete indifference. Give them a chance to get settled, have a little patience and look forward to the reward that will come!

Can Rodders play right back/wing back?

i hope not, he would be wasted there. Waiting for Coleman to come claim his stake on that position!

The good thing is that Russia didn't qualify for the World Cup so Bily will have a full summers rest so he should be fully refreshed for next seson, and then maybe we'll see what Bily's really about.
